  • Vontae Davis seen during Sunday’s Bills loss to the Chargers before he called it a career at halftime

"This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL", Davis said in a statement.

Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis quit midway through their National Football League clash against the Los Angeles Chargers, telling coach Sean McDermott he was done.

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon isn't concerned about an injury that sidelined him for much of the fourth quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. According to ESPN reporter Mike Rodak, David retired at that time.

"Pulled himself out of the game".

'He communicated to us that he was done'.

That move didn't sit well with the Bills' two senior defensive leaders. Asked where that was, he responded: "That's not here, point blank and simple". Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander called the impromptu retirement "completely disrespectful", adding that he had never seen anything like it, even going back to his youth-league days.

"To quit on your teammates when things aren't going so well in the middle of a game where we need you and we're down a man, that's definitely disrespectful", Bush explained. "Never seen it, ever. "Pop Warner, high school, college, pros", he said, "(I've) never heard of it.


Davis was credited with one tackle.

The Bills provided Davis a chance to re-start his career after a dispute with former Colts coach Chuck Pagano led to Indianapolis cutting him in November. "Today on the field, reality hit me fast and hard: I shouldn't be out there anymore".

Davis was a healthy scratch for the Bills' defeat to the Baltimore Ravens last week.

The Chargers gained 284 yards in the first half, the most the Bills have allowed before halftime since 2013.

Philip Rivers couldn't believe it. McCoy was shaken up late in the third quarter when he was tackled from behind and had Buffalo center Ryan Groy fall down on him.

The 22-year-old was better in the second half, which he began by overseeing a seven-play, 75-yard drive capped by Chris Ivory's 1-yard plunge. It was nearly the tale of two halves. He completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 245 yards with the one touchdown and two interceptions - giving Allen a low QB rating of 16.1.
