Updated: Sunday, August 17 2014, 12:14 AM EDT

The Buffalo Bills lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 19-16 on Saturday night, but they hope they didn't lose their star receiver as well.

Sammy Watkins left the game with a rib contusion on the team's first series Saturday and did not return.

Doug Marrone said after the game that it was indeed a contusion, but would not elaborate on the severity of the injury. It is unclear if Watkins will miss any time.

As for the Bills offense, it once again moved the ball effectively, but failed to get in the endzone. EJ Manuel finished 17-27 for 146 yards and his first interception of the preseason.

Buffalo will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their fourth of five preseason games on Saturday, August 23rd at 4:30 pm.
