Bills linebacker Powell carted off field with leg injury

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills backup linebacker Ty Powell has been carted off a field after hurting his right leg in practice.

Powell was hurt an hour into the Bills' joint practice with the Cleveland Browns on Monday. It happened during a team drill when Browns running back Jalen Parmele ran to his left toward Powell.

Powell was helped into the cart and was unable to put any weight onto his right leg.

Powell has been a dependable backup and a key special teams player for the Bills. He was drafted in 2013 by the Seattle Seahawks. He had 10 tackles last season in 14 games.
