Bills running back Taiwan Jones was tackled without his helmet on during Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. It happened after his helmet was ripped off during a bizarre botched punt return.
Jones was then tackled without his helmet and was left laying face down on the turf bleeding from his forehead. He somehow managed to avoid a concussion on the play.
Hope only laceration on head.

Jones showed off the injury after practice on Monday and again on Wednesday. The cut and bruising on his forehead appears to be healing nicely and he’s hopeful he can play this weekend.

This is Bills RB/ST Taiwan Jones in the locker room today. Amazingly, he has no concussion and might play this weekend in Minnesota. pic.twitter.com/i7Kb2EvG5D

This is the same team that has guys quitting at halftime on it? This guy went forehead to helmet on a play and wants to get back out there. I guess not all of the Bills have quit, even though they’re off to an 0-2 start.
