Could Bills TE Charles Clay’s knee force him to walk away from football early?

How long will Bills tight end Charles Clay’s knee hold up?

Today a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, has to have Buffalo Bills fans nervous. The Buffalo Bills paid former Miami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay a five-year, $38 million contract this offseason, but there are questions about how long he will be able to play, according to Schefter.

Last season, Clay had his knee drained at least a half-dozen times, a league source tells ESPN, and one reason the Dolphins balked at matching the offer sheet that Clay signed with Buffalo were the concerns about his longevity.

There were some who wondered how much longer Clay, 26, would be able to play. One doctor predicted that Clay would not be able to have much beyond one productive season in Buffalo, especially considering that he will be playing on turf at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Hopefully the Doctor’s are wrong, but this is not good news coming out of Buffalo on Clay.
