Bills Lose Starting Tackle Early Against Chiefs

The Buffalo Bills will have to overcome a potentially significant injury if they're going to topple the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. Right tackle Spencer Brown was carted off the field in the first half with what appeared to be a severe injury. The Bills ruled Brown questionable to return with an ankle injury, so there is at least some optimism that his injury isn't serious. The Bills had yet to score a touchdown when he departed, but they exploded for a 96-yard drive in the last two minutes of the half to go up 10-7. The Chiefs responded with a stunning 13-second drive that set up a successful 62-yard field goal to tie the game 10-10.
Brown joined the Bills as their 93rd overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He started 10 games for the team as a rookie, earning a 62.6 overall grade from Pro Football Focus. Brown was the team's unquestioned starter entering the 2022 season, and he had maintained similarly competent play through five weeks.

David Quessenberry replaced Brown in the lineup. Quessenberry started 17 games for the Tennessee Titans last year, earning an 80.6 PFF grade. He's a capable, reliable backup.
