UPDATE: Bills’ OC Mitch Morse returned to the field late in the second quarter after the original writing of this article.
The Buffalo Bills suffered a critical injury in the very first drive of the game. Center Mitch Morse had to exit the game due to an elbow injury. Since then, the center has been designated as questionable to return.
The Bills center got X-rays on his right elbow in the locker room.

Morse is the most stable fifth of an offensive line that could very well be one of the most questionable units on the Bills roster, which is among the deepest in the entire NFL. Losing him would certainly be a tough blow for Ken Dorsey’s offense.
In the first drive, offensive lineman Greg Van Roten entered the game to take over Morse’s spot in the lineup. Buffalo went on to score a touchdown a few plays later, showing the well-known efficiency of a Josh Allen-led offense.
Something else to watch: Dawson Knox was also being looked at by the Bills, per the ESPN broadcast. Knox did return in the following drive while Morse didn’t.
