With training camps opening across the league in the coming days, the headlines will fill up with all kinds of injuries.

But one of the first ones in Bills camp was not what it appeared.

Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin left the Bills’ first practice early, but said later it was not injury related.

“No I was not hurt the first day of camp,” Goodwin wrote on Twitter. “Sickle Cell and athsma beat me today!

The third-round pick showed flashes of big-play ability last year, averaging 16.6 yards per reception and scoring three touchdowns. But he also missed four games with minor injuries.

If he can stay well and stay on the field, the Bills will have plenty of game-breaking potential.
