Injuries: Malcolm Mitchell suffers elbow subluxation

Playing in his NFL debut, it's hard to imagine a worse start for Malcolm Mitchell.

The Patriots' fourth-round pick out of Georgia suffered an elbow subluxation during Thursday's preseason win over the Saints, a source informed of the injury told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. X-rays on Mitchell's left elbow were negative and his elbow needed to pop back into place after he landed on it awkwardly in the first half. Pending an MRI, Mitchell is expected to miss roughly four weeks, Rapoport added.

Mitchell is scheduled to undergo an MRI next, according to Rapoport.

Here are the rest of the injuries we are monitoring Thursday:

  1. The Bills don't play their first preseason game until Saturday, but the team still suffered a potential big loss on the injury front.

Safety Aaron Williams was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion, the team announced, after he collided with a teammate at practice Thursday. Some Buffalo players dropped to a knee to pray for their teammate, according to reporters on the field.

The other player involved, wideout Dez Lewis, also suffered an undisclosed injury in the collision.
