Ghee lay motionless for several minutes before being able to sit up along the Bills' sideline after he was hurt six minutes into the third quarter. Though groggy, Ghee took a few steps toward the cart before being driven off the field.
The injury occurred when Ghee, a third-round draft pick out of Wake Forest, lowered his helmet in a bid to stop Simpson on a 2-yard run on fourth-and-1. Ghee dropped to the ground and lay there face-down as Bills trainers immediately attended to him.
Joined by Bengals trainers, medical officials eventually were able to turn Ghee over on his back, then have him sit up on his own. It was at that point an ambulance began driving onto the field, before making a U-turn back up the stadium tunnel.
Simpson also lay on the field briefly before getting up on his own and showing no signs of grogginess. Simpson eventually came over and tapped Ghee on the shoulder pad.
The Bengals later lost Jones, who hurt his neck late in the third quarter. Escorted by trainers, Jones slowly made his way off the field, and Lewis didn't provide an update on the player's status after the game.
