Injury report: RB White is OK

DENVER - Bills running back Johnny White, who suffered an injury to the head area Saturday night and was taken to a Denver hospital, is not seriously injured.

"I know the injuries were a concern to everyone, and the good news right now is there were no serious injuries out of the night," said Bills coach Chan Gailey. "Guys will miss awhile but they're going to eventually be fine."

"Everything cleared at the hospital and he's going back on a plane with us," Gailey said of White, the Bills' fifth-round draft choice out of North Carolina.

White was slammed to the ground at the end of a running play by Denver linebacker Mario Haggan, a former Bill. White's head hit the ground first. He was moving his arms when team doctors and trainers ran out to treat him. The Bills' medical staff immobilized him and strapped him to a stretcher. White was treated on the field for about 10 minutes before being placed on a cart and taken by ambulance to the hospital. But he was taken to the team charter plane for the return flight home.

Gailey would not say whether White suffered a concussion or not.

"That he's not staying here overnight to me means it's not that serious," Gailey said.

Bills receiver Donald Jones took a big hit to the head area at the end of a pass play and also was on the ground for several minutes. He was able to walk off the field just before halftime and did not return. He was OK, Gailey said.

Inside linebacker Arthur Moats suffered a leg injury and had to be carted off the field in the third quarter. Gailey said that injury wasn't bad, either. "It's more of a bruise than anything," Gailey said.

Receiver Naaman Roosevelt had a sore ankle after the game. A Denver player rolled up on his leg after a catch.
