Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is in the NFL’s concussion protocol after leaving Tuesday’s practice.

Goodwin was examined by trainers and later escorted off the field after hitting his head on the ground while trying to make a catch.

The speedy Goodwin is trying to win a role in the Bills’ offense and has been impressive in camp. Two weeks ago, Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman praised Goodwin and said he appears to be “on a mission.”

Goodwin, who just missed qualifying for the Olympics in the long jump, is listed as a second-teamer on the Bills’ unofficial depth chart. He was limited to two games last year by injury and had 17 of his 20 career catches as a rookie in 2013.

Though the Bills expect Sammy Watkins to play in this weeks preseason game, they’re still shorthanded at receiver. Bills Coach Rex Ryan told reporters that Marcus Easley and rookie Kolby Listenbee aren’t close to returning.

  1. Dang, with all the Bills injuries Ryan may need a rabbit’s foot to rub for good luck.

    Probably should skip the foot part, I guess…

  2. So much talent, just can’t for some reason stay healthy. From what I heard, he wacked his head off the ground pretty hard, they even heard it on the sideline. Has to be the unluckiest dude on the team with the injury bug.

  3. “Tyrod Taylor was the MVP of Bills camp.”

    So the Bills win the off season and Geno Taylor is the MVP, LOL!

    Only in Buffalow.

    Better than any QB you have in Toronto. You should go to the big tent and watch the circus, since you don’t have any NFL there. We all know you love that Canadian team, the Rough Riders.

  5. This guy just can’t catch a break. I was expecting good things from now that he is only concentrating and his training is focused on football only. I thought that could prevent some of his injuries. But having your bell rung, that is just bad luck.
