Tight end Charles Clay had a knee scope performed Monday morning and will miss "multiple weeks," according to Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott.
Clay was hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's 20-16 loss to Cincinnati when he was hit by Bengals safety Shawn Williams at the end of a 24-yard gain. Pro Football Talk reported Monday that Clay suffered a torn meniscus and sprained MCL, although McDermott did not confirm those details, saying he had yet to get a full report from the Bills' medical staff.
"We haven't gotten that far at this point," the coach said when asked if Clay's injury could be season-ending.
Clay, 28, has gotten off to a good start this season. He has 20 catches for a team-leading 258 yards and two touchdowns.
"Next man up," McDermott said when asked how the team would replace Clay's production. "That's what we do. That's what happens in the league."
