Nsekhe’s right leg was rolled under in the third quarter and medical staff immediately immobilized the leg before carting him off the field. McDermott did not specify what Nsekhe’s ankle injury is.
The former Washington Redskins and Los Angeles Rams lineman has played 56% of the Bills’ offensive snaps in his first year with the team, including one start in nine games played. He’s split time with rookie Cody Ford at the position dating back to training camp.
The second-round pick Ford will presumably be Buffalo’s primary right tackle with Nsekhe injured, although the depth behind Ford is yet to be determined. Ryan Bates is capable of playing either tackle position but the Bills brought in offensive tackles Brian Mihalik, Sam Young, Caleb Benenoch and Corey Robinson and guard Austin Pasztor for workouts after Sunday’s game.
With or without Nsekhe, the Bills’ offensive line has its work cut out for it over the next week-and-a-half. They’ll host the Broncos and EDGE rusher Von Miller on Sunday before traveling to Dallas to face DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Both players’ 29.5 sacks, apiece, since 2017 ranks 9th-most in the NFL during that span.
