Johnny White and Donald Jones Should be Ready for Opening Day; Naaman Roosevelt Out for at Least Rest of Preseason

The Bills had a pair of terrifying moments in Denver Saturday when both WR Donald Jones and rookie RB Johnny White suffered awful-looking head injuries. Jones took a huge (possibly dirty) hit from Broncos safety Rahim Moore and was knocked cold, while White’s head bounced off the turf and he ended up getting strapped to a bodyboard and taken straight to a hospital.

Fortunately, as we discussed earlier, both Jones and White passed enough tests to make the trip home with the team. Now the good news continues, as it appears both players will be ready for opening day:

“They’re both going to be back for the first ball game as I understand it,” head coach Chan Gailey told ”Johnny will probably be back a little quicker than Donald, but I think they’ll both make the first ball game.”

That’s obviously great news, and a huge relief after watching them lie motionless on the turf Saturday night.

The news was less good for WR Naaman Roosevelt, who sprained his ankle Saturday is probably out for the rest of the preseason. “He got that ankle rolled up and it’s going to be a couple of weeks with him,” said Gailey.

Hopefully, Roosevelt will also be ready for the opener.
