The loose ball bounced into the end zone where Jones, trying to prevent a Los Angeles touchdown, scooped it up. Jones was treated while face down on the turf. He said he never lost consciousness but sensed he was bleeding very badly. When any player loses his helmet, officials are required to blow their whistles immediately and stop play. But in this case, things happened so quickly it was impossible to protect Jones in time. Nwosu, a second-round pick out of USC, was still assessed a yard unnecessary roughness penalty.

Marcus Murphy muffed a punt into the end zone. Jones scooped the ball, was hit and had his helmet come off. Jones was struck again, this time by Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu in a helmet-to-head hit. Jones walked off the field with the training staff, and the front of his white headband was clearly bloodied. The play was called a touchback, and Nwosu was given a personal-foul penalty. Phillip Gaines, who started at right cornerback in Week 1, was carted off with an elbow injury and did not return.

The Buffalo Bills game against the Los Angeles Chargers yesterday was notable for two fairly big reasons. The first was that the game saw Josh Allen make his first start as the Bills' starting quarterback after his selection in the first round of the draft back in April. The second, Vontae Davis shockingly deciding to retire at halftime of the game with the Bills getting beat so badly. You can read more about that here. There was another shocking moment from the game, however. It involved Taiwan Jones and a muffed punt return that ended with the Bills running back having blood pouring from his head.

The hit occurred as Jones was in the end zone trying to recover the ball following a muffed punt. Scary moment for Taiwan Jones. The Bills RB gets hit in the head without his helmet on following muffed punt recovery. The result it quite a bit of bleeding. He gets up and goes to the locker room after. Here's a look at it in slow mo: pic.

Bills kick returner Taiwan Jones recovered a fumble, had his helmet ripped off but continued and got hit with a helmet to his unprotected head. Very dangerous. Hope only laceration on head. Helmets were developed to prevent skull fractures not concussions. He did not return, but it was encouraging that he was not immediately ruled out and there has been no word of a trip to the hospital. The tackler, Uchenna Nwosu, was flagged for unnecessary roughness, presumable for playing through the whistle. However, it is difficult to solely blame the tackler when Jones continued to run and others continued to block.

Buffalo Bills running back suffers shocking bloody injury to the head during game

But as the Bills' backup running back and core special-teams player instinctively covered his wound with both hands Sunday, his health was not his only concern. He was simply upset that he allowed the play to happen. Yet Davis sped by Jones and popped Bills punt returner Marcus Murphy as the ball landed in his chest, causing it to bounce away toward the end zone. The play would later be ruled as a muffed punt by the Bills, who never officially gained possession. That meant Jones could have recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchback, but because he did not know whether Murphy had possession, Jones treated the play as a potential safety. Jones picked up the ball in the end zone and attempted to advance it to avoid what he thought would be a safety.
