The Buffalo Bills didn't have the best of Sundays, going down 28-25 to their AFC East rivals the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins London-born running back Jay Ajayi gashed the Bills rush defense apart to the tune of 214 yards on the ground while Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry combined for an impressive 179 receiving yards. 

That wasn't the only situation in which Landry hurt the Bills, however, as the Dolphins wide receiver laid out an illegal hit on Aaron Williams that saw the Bills safety taken to a hospital.

On a simple outside run play to the aforementioned Ajayi in the redzone, Landry left his feet as he launched himself at Williams, cracking the unsuspecting safety in the helmet with a block that shook Williams to his core.

Speaking after the loss, Bills center Eric Wood confirmed - via ProFootballTalk - that Williams left the stadium and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

It looks like there was no real lasting damage, however, as the Bills themselves stated that Williams had undergone an MRI in the hospital and was rejoining the team as they went back up north to Buffalo.

"If I could take that hit back, I would," Landry said about the illegal hit. "The guy has a family to feed and this is his livelihood. You never want to see that with anybody."
