The Buffalo Bills cooled off considerably Saturday afternoon with a 30-7 road loss to the Washington Redskins. The third preseason game is generally considered the dress rehearsal for the regular season, and the Bills did not have the showing anyone would have hoped for.
Not only did the Bills have a disappointing showing but they came away from the game with several key injuries. Most notably, star cornerback Stephon Gilmore left the game with a wrist injury and starting safety Da’Norris Searcy left with a head injury. Injury-prone quarterback Kevin Kolb left the game with concussion-like symptoms, leaving undrafted rookie free agent Jeff Tuel as the only healthy quarterback on the roster. The extent of these injuries will be known in the next few days. C.J. Spiller also went down with a knee injury, but was able to return to the game.
