The Lions lost their preseason game Friday, 24-20 to the visiting Buffalo Bills, but of bigger concern to Detroit was the loss of two players to right leg injuries.

Linebacker Jarrad Davis got hurt on the second play from scrimmage. He was tripped up by a teammate, linebacker Devon Kennard, as they pursued a Buffalo ball-carrier. Davis was helped off the field, then driven to the locker room on a cart.

In the second quarter, Lions center Frank Ragnow had his leg rolled over by a Bills player. He also was assisted from the field.

As for the game action, Bills quarterback Josh Allen played the first half and guided two touchdown drives. He completed 3 of 6 passes for 49 yards. Matt Barkley went 12 of 14 for 142 yards and a touchdown off the bench.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was in for the majority of the first half, and he threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ty Johnson. Stafford finished 12 of 19 for 137 yards.
