The Buffalo Bills have been dealing with injuries throughout training camp, which is something you never want to hear during this time of the year.
Fortunately, the majority of the injuries haven’t been too serious. That wasn’t the case with wide receiver Marquez Stevenson, however. Stevenson went down Tuesday in practice and didn’t return. As it turns out, the 2021 draft pick injured his foot and will miss weeks, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
“We’re in weeks at this point, so we’ll just see,” McDermott told reporters before Thursday’s morning practice.
sMcDermott couldn’t say if Stevenson injured the same foot that caused him to miss the first 10 games of the 2021 season.
“It is a foot, I couldn’t tell you if it’s the same one from last year. I didn’t keep up on that,” said McDermott. “It’s unfortunate. He was having a good camp, so we’ll see where we go with it.”
It’s a tough blow for Stevenson, who has to be feeling some major deja vü at this point. The NFL is all about how you respond to adversity, however, and Stevenson’s latest situation is another hill he’ll have to climb.
Fortunately for the Bills, players like Isaiah McKenzie have been stepping up, so there are still plenty of depth options at the position. Therefore, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not the Bills bring in another receiver to compete.
