There’s worry in Buffalo over TE Charles Clay’s knee


  • On Thursday, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters “we are concerned with Charles’ knee situation.”
  • Clay has been plagued by chronic knee trouble but still managed to play in 87.8 percent of the teams offensive snaps last year (872 total snaps) but missed several practices throughout the season and was listed as “questionable” on the injury report for most weeks.
  • Clay has seen a slight dip in play overall since joining the Bills in 2015. His 2016 grade of 72.8 was his lowest output since 2012. However, Clay has still performed as one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the league, ranking fourth in 2016 with a run-block grade of 77.7.
  • Clay has struggled with drops over the past two seasons dropping 10.0 percent of his catchable targets. Only one other tight ends has dropped more passes over that stretch.
