Bills running back injured

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Buffalo Bills running back Travis Henry suffered an upper body injury Saturday in a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans.

Henry was hurt when he was hit by Tennessee linebacker Keith Bulluck while trying to catch a pass midway through the second quarter. Henry remained down on the ground for about five minutes before being helped off the field by a trainer. He then was carted away from the sideline and taken to the locker room.


X-rays on Henry's ribs were negative, according to the Bills.

The injury comes a day after a report that Buffalo backup running back Willis McGahee asked the team to trade him if he was not going to be the opening day starter.

Henry started 15 games last season, rushing for 1,356 yards and 10 touchdowns on 331 carries. He ran for 1,438 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2002.
