 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters limped off the field after hurting his groin in the second quarter of Buffalo's game against the New York Giants on Sunday.
The Giants then lost running back Brandon Jacobs for one series after he sprained his left ankle following a 5-yard run midway through the third quarter. Jacobs, who scored on 6- and 43-yard runs and had 111 yards rushing, was hurt when he fell awkwardly while being tackled by Kyle Williams.
But he was back when New York got the ball again.
Peters was hurt while blocking Osi Umenyiora on a third-and-5. Peters stood his ground, but his right foot slipped from under him on a slick field drenched by a pelting rain.
Peters lay on the ground for several minutes before limping off on his own.
The Bills said the player's return was questionable as Peters watched the next series from the sideline. He was escorted to the locker room before the end of the first half and did not return to the sideline.
Peters was selected to his first Pro Bowl this week, becoming Buffalo's first offensive lineman chosen since Ruben Brown in 2003, and first offensive tackle since Howard Ballard in 1993.
It was an exceptional honor for Peters, a tight end when he signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He was converted into an offensive lineman the following year, and took over at left tackle last season.
