Bills G Legursky injures knee

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Buffalo Bills guard Doug Legursky was carted off the field after hurting his left knee, and the team lost two receivers to injury in the preseason finale against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

Rookie third-round pick Marquise Goodwin did not return after being poked in the left eye in the first quarter. Veteran Brad Smith did not return after hurting his ribs late in the second quarter.

Legursky, who was competing for a starting job at left guard, hurt his knee while blocking on a 1-yard run by Kendall Gaskins late in the third quarter. The Woodrow Wilson graduate waved to the crowd as he was carted off the field.

Goodwin was hurt when he stumbled and then went head-first trying to make a deep catch up the right sideline. The ball went off his hands, and he fell to the turf.

Goodwin was treated on the field and was slow to get up.

Goodwin, Buffalo’s third-round pick out of Texas, is in the mix to earn one of the team’s top-four receiving spots.

Smith is an eighth-year player, who was being counted on to fill a role on special teams.

Lions backup linebacker Jon Morgan did not return after hurting his shoulder in the second half.
