Buffalo Bills running back Travis Henry left Saturday night's preseason game against Tennessee with an apparent injury to his left side.

Henry was hurt 10 minutes into the second quarter as he was preparing to catch a pass, taking a hard hit and getting knocked over by Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck. In breaking up the play at Titans' 20, Bulluck hit Henry high under his left arm, sending him tumbling to the field.

Henry lay on the field for a few minutes before being helped up by a Bills trainer. Henry slowly walked off the field and was escorted to a cart on the sideline and was then driven to the locker room.

The Bills did not immediately provide an update of Henry's condition.

Henry was having a strong game, with seven carries for 27 yards and a 3-yard reception.

Backup Willis McGahee took over.

The injury comes at a time when there is plenty of attention on the Bills' running backs. The Associated Press, citing a source close to McGahee, reported Friday that the player has asked to be traded if he is not the starter on opening day.

Bills president Tom Donahoe denied the report in an impromptu news conference in the press box just before game time.

Henry is a three-year starter for the Bills. He is coming off his second straight season of 1,300 yards rushing. McGahee, selected 23rd overall in the 2003 draft, is enjoying a strong training camp after missing all of last season recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee.

And we're believing this because of what? What a play by this team. They sit Henry, give their "next one" a chance, if he doesn't pan out, they've got Henry. If he does, they've got a rehabilitated 1300 yard rusher they can trade. If I was Henry I'd do as much public exercises as possible, put a little hole in their plans.

ITs kindof a smart move if Henry isnt injuried. I say play them both first two or three games, try to get them to have equal amounts of carries and who ever perfomes better thats your starter

I just read a report saying that he is going to be ready to play in week 1.
