Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus appeared to incur an ankle injury early in Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. Dareus came out after the Bills’ first play on defense and did not return until three minutes remained in the first half.
The Panthers drove down the length of the field on the drive near the Bills’ end zone, and came away with a field goal to start the game. They built a 3-0 lead with Dareus out of the game.
The Panthers are without starting center Ryan Kalil this afternoon and backup defensive back Jerel Worthy is out with a concussion, further exacerbating the problem on the hot, humid day in North Carolina.
Dareus missed eight games during the 2016 season with a suspension and hamstring injury and played a limited number of snaps in Week 1 as Sean McDermott noted he wanted to keep the linemen fresh in their rotation.
