ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd is getting a second opinion from foot specialist Robert Anderson on an undisclosed foot injury.
Bills coach Doug Marrone made the announcement after the Bills' 35-13 preseason loss to Detroit on Thursday night.
Byrd was with the team and was practicing as recently as Tuesday. It's unclear when he was hurt.
The safety didn't report to the team until Aug. 22 after the Bills applied the franchise tag to the Pro Bowl safety.
The NFL then said that Buffalo would not be allowed to keep Byrd as a non-roster exemption past an Aug. 31 deadline.
Anderson is the doctor who evaluated Bills defensive end Mario Williams when he suffered a foot injury earlier in training camp.
Three other players were injured in the Bills' loss Friday.
Guard Doug Legursky was carted off the field after hurting his left knee, and the team lost two receivers to injury.
Rookie third-round pick Marquise Goodwin did not return after being poked in the left eye in the first quarter. Veteran Brad Smith did not return after hurting his ribs late in the second quarter.
Legursky, who was competing for a starting job at left guard, hurt his knee while blocking on a 1-yard run by Kendall Gaskins late in the third quarter. Legursky waved to the crowd as he was carted off the field.
