Charles Clay has torn meniscus

Charles Clay had arthroscopic surgery on his knee and will miss multiple weeks, according to Bills coach Sean McDermott. Clay suffered a torn meniscus and a sprained MCL, according to a source.

Fantasy Impact

A typical recovery time for a torn meniscus is about four to six weeks. If you own Clay, chances are you already had a tight end you drafted, so hopefully this won't leave you in a lurch. If it does and there's nothing but long shots on the waiver wire, take a flyer on Clay's understudy, Nick O'Leary, who led the Bills in receiving yards Sunday at Cincinnati. With perhaps the worst group of wide receivers in the NFL, Tyrod Taylor will look for his tight ends no matter what. Clay owners should hold onto him as long as they can, as he was having a top-five year and it sounds like he'll be back this year.

Charles Clay carted off with knee injury

Charles Clay suffered an injury to his left knee Sunday at Cincinnati, and left the game late in the first quarter after catching two passes for 31 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Clay has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career (he's played all 16 games only once in his previous six seasons), and now, what was becoming a career year for him is interrupted in brutal fashion. The severity of the injury is unknown as of Sunday evening, but the Bills have hope that he did not tear his ACL, according to NBC. Buffalo is on a bye next week, so that will buy some time to heal, but if Clay's injury is long-term, tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas would see increased targets.

Charles Clay gets boost with Jordan Matthews injury

Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews will need thumb surgery and is expected to miss a month after suffering the injury during Buffalo's win Sunday at Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Tight end Charles Clay was already a big part of the Bills' passing game -- he accounted for 112 of Tyrod Taylor's 182 passing yards Sunday -- and he should get even more looks now. If Clay is still available in your league, put in a waiver claim for him. This solidifies him as a legit fantasy starter.

Charles Clay leads Bills' offense in upset win

Charles Clay caught five passes on seven targets for 112 yards Sunday, all team highs as the Bills stunned the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

He accounted for 62 percent of Tyrod Taylor's passing yards, and the highlight was reeling in a 44-yard bomb that set up a touchdown in the second quarter. Clay has become a trusted target for Taylor and is making plays. Buffalo's next opponent, Cincinnati, has mostly kept tight ends in check, but Clay makes a good low-end starter or streamer, and a DFS cash option, especially if Jordan Matthews misses time with a hand injury.

Charles Clay scores second touchdown of season

Bills tight end Charles Clay caught all six of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Clay's touchdown was for 6 yards, which is actually the Bills' longest TD pass of the year so far. Clay now has two scores in three games, and Buffalo's propensity to throw close to the goal line makes him a weekly streaming/bye week option, especially in what could be a high-scoring trip to Atlanta next week.
