Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was surprised by the report that surfaced last week about his knee.

Charles Clay doesn't think his knee is nearly as bad as reports indicated last week.

Leading up to the Buffalo Bills season debut last Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN shared the following about tight end Charles Clay.


In addition to the tweet, Schefter also reported that one doctor believed that Clay wouldn't have more than one productive season in Buffalo because of his knee.

Last week, Clay let his play on the field do the talking for him by catching four passes for 43 yards. Leading up to this week's contest against the New England Patriots, Clay finally spoke on the report. Here is what the tight end told the Buffalo News:

"It caught me off guard," Clay said. I didn't know anything about it. The day before yesterday is when I found out about it. I didn't know anything about it. My brother called me and he was laughing. He said, 'I saw what Rex said about you.' I said, 'What are you talking about?' And he said, 'I guess somebody was saying something about your knee.' He sent me the video and that's how I saw it. I don't know why anyone would do it. I don't worry about it." 

In regards to a doctor telling Schefter that the tight end may only be productive for one season, Clay added, "OK, we'll just see. I'm not going to get too much into that, into a war of words or whatever it may be."

Clay doesn't have a crystal ball, so there's no telling what's in his future. That said, he doesn't sound too concerned about the talk surrounding his knee.
