ORCHARD PARK, NY — Bills newly-acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin did indeed suffer a torn meniscus in the team's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers back on Nov. 19.
Although reports surfaced last week that Benjamin tore his meniscus, the Bills hadn't confirmed it until Monday afternoon. Bills coach Sean McDermott even denied the report at his Monday press conference and said that Benjamin was "day to day." Later in the day, Bills public relations staff confirmed the tear.
After the game Sunday quarterback Tyrod Taylor said McDermott showed the team something that 17 out of 19 people didn't think the Bills had a chance to beat the Chiefs. McDermott didn't say what he showed the team when he was asked but did say, "These guys, there's not a whole lot of people out there who believe in them. We'll use that to our advantage."
The Bills coach said, "Preparing for the Patriots is a headache" and that he has great respect for their success.
The Bills are home for the next three weeks starting with this Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
