Green Bay wide receiver and former North Dakota State star Christian Watson reportedly sustained a concussion in the first quarter of the Packers' game at Buffalo on Sunday night and did not return to the game.

The Packers rookie, who had missed Green Bay's previous two games with an injury, sustained the injury in the first quarter as he was tackled following a 12-yard reception and making helmet-to-helmet contact with Buffalo's Tremaine Edmunds.

The Packers' training staff tended to Watson and after several minutes he was able to walk off the field. He was checked in the on-field medical tent and then was walked to the locker room. NBC reported later in the first half that Watson suffered a concussion and would not return to the game.

Watson has played in five of Green Bay's eight game this season. He has seven receptions for 52 yards and has run three times for 19 yards and a touchdown. He also has two kickoff returns for a 17.5-yard average.
