Bills rule out returner Roberts in season opener vs Jets

September 6, 2019

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills receiver and kickoff returner Andre Roberts has been ruled out for the season opener at the New York Jets because of a quadriceps injury.

Roberts was hurt in practice this week and ruled out on Friday. The game Sunday was supposed to be a homecoming for Roberts after he signed with Buffalo in March shortly after getting cut by the Jets.

Roberts is a 10-year veteran and coming off a season when he earned All-Pro honors for leading the NFL in kickoff return yards.

Tight end Tyler Kroft is listed as doubtful after missing the entire offseason with a broken right foot. Kroft was cleared for practicing last weekend.
