The Buffalo Bills have suffered a number of casualties for this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
On Friday, head coach Sean McDermott updated the status of some questionable players for the Divisional Classic and announced safety Micah Hyde, cornerback Dane Jackson and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips as absences. Not only that, but defensive back Jordan Poyer could also be a problem.
Bill will have a tough job replacing injured players
The losses are the result of last Monday Night Football’s win over the Tennessee Titans. Phillips is recovering from a posterior thigh muscle injury, while Poyer missed practice this week with foot complaints. Hyde and Jackson, finally, have been diagnosed with neck problems.
Jackson’s injury, even, was frightening. With less than a minute left in the first half of the 47-7 triumph, the corner made a tackle on wide receiver Treylon Bruks and ended up running into a teammate directly with his neck (see tweet below). Shortly after, already in the third quarter, the franchise reported that he was moving all extremities of his body. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital to which he was transferred during halftime of the game on Tuesday.
As said, Buffalo returns to action this Sunday, in one of the most anticipated clashes of the week, involving two of the best attacks of the regular season so far: an AFC East classic against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
