Buffalo Bills player retires at halftime

Buffalo Bills player retires at halftime”

Gameday took a unusual turn for Buffalo Bills fans when cornerback Vontae Davis abruptly retired at halftime during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. When I get back there, we'll continue to communicate and get things sorted out. "He's a good, young pro and we're looking forward to getting him better each week".

Not exactly a resounding endorsement for the Bills, and to add insult to injury they went on to lose 31-20. But today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: "I shouldn't be out there anymore", the statement read.

Davis, 30, started and played the first half of the game before retiring at halftime with the Bills trailing 28-6.
