Bills Announce Official Injury Diagnosis For Defensive Star

Earlier this week, Buffalo Bills star safety Jordan Poyer left practice with what appeared to be a serious injury. Fortunately, it's not as serious as previously believed. 

The Bills announced this Thursday morning that Poyer has suffered a hyperextended elbow injury. The bad news is that he's going to miss a couple of weeks. The good news is Poyer should be good to go by Week 1. 

Bills head coach Sean McDermott doesn't sound too concern for his defensive star. 

“We’ll see,” McDermott said, via Pro Football Talk. “I think it’s going to be some days here, maybe a week or two. We’ll see. He’s a tough guy and [we] know he rehabs well, so we’ll see.”

He added, "I’m not overly concerned. I’m always concerned when guys miss time, because you need that time to practice — whether you’ve been together like Micah and Jordan have or not, practice is important to performance. So with that, we’ll just see where it goes. And I think Micah will be out there a little bit more today as well.”

Poyer has been phenomenal for the Bills over the past five seasons. He'll once again be a defensive leader for the AFC East franchise later this fall as long as he's healthy. 

The Bills begin the 2022 season on Sept. 8 against the Rams of Los Angeles.
