Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jerick “Bubba” McKinnon will miss his fourth straight game after being diagnosed with a concussion.
Continue Reading Below The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver, who missed five games last season due to concussion, will miss the first four games of this season.
Bills fans will be relieved to know that McKinnon, 31, has been cleared to play after undergoing surgery on the concussion.
The news of McKinnon’s injury comes as a shock for the Bills who have been searching for an upgrade at the wide receiver position.
With Tyrod Taylor now out with a torn ACL, the Bills have had to move on to other options for the position.
Bucs general manager Brandon Beane has been busy with the team’s offseason.
He made moves to sign quarterback Marcus Mariota and defensive end Olivier Vernon to big contracts.
McKinnon had been on the trading block since last summer, when he was released by the Cleveland Browns.
The Bills released him in September and then signed him to a five-year deal in November.
McNabb, a four-time Pro Bowler, was the first wide receiver signed by Beane in 2016.
He was cut by the Browns in January after the team released him following his fifth season.
McKillers agent told reporters on Wednesday that the Bills will not be able to re-sign McKinnon.
