 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Bills' first win of the season also came at a cost: more injuries.
Cornerback Ashton Youboty's status is uncertain after he twisted his ankle in the first quarter of a 17-14 win over the New York Jets on Sunday. Adding to that, linebacker Kevin Harrison, who was only signed last week, limped off with an undisclosed knee injury sustained on the opening kickoff, and free safety Jim Leonhard limped off with a calf injury on the first play of the Jets final drive.
Coach Dick Jauron didn't provide any definitive updates, only saying Leonhard will require more tests. Leonhard had a noticeable limp following the game and expressed concern, saying he heard something pop.
That's potentially more bad news for a defense that already has three starters on injured reserve and was down to playing its fifth weakside linebacker, Leon Joe, against the Jets.
Youboty was starting in place of Jason Webster, who's out for the season with a broken forearm. Youboty was hurt after absorbing a block by Jets offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson on a screen pass to Laveranues Coles.
He limped off the field on his own, and was lightly jogging along the sideline before heading to the tunnel when the second quarter began. Jabari Greer replaced Youboty.
Leonhard started in place of Ko Simpson, who's out for the season with a broken ankle.
The Bills (1-3) will get at least one player back for their next game, Oct. 8 against Dallas. Reserve defensive end Anthony Hargrove is eligible to return after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
