S - BUF - Questionable
Week 3 Outlook
The Buffalo Bills only listed one player on their initial practice report: S Micah Hyde, who was limited with a back injury.
Hyde has been taking it a day at a time as he progresses back from his injury that limited him to just a pair of games in 2022. The two-time All-Pro S is a difference maker when healthy, and the Bills will probably play the long game with his return.
Micah Hyde (back) returned to practice in limited capacity Wednesday.
Bills' coach Sean McDermott originally announced that Hyde (back) would sit out another practice. However, the veteran safety surprisingly got in a limited session with the team Wednesday that included stretching and some drills. McDermott has stated the team is "taking it one day at a time" with Hyde.
Micah Hyde (back) will not participate in Buffalo's practice on Wednesday.
Hyde is dealing with a back injury that he recently sustained and won't be practicing on Wednesday. The exact severity of it is unknown, but HC Sean McDermott implied that he's day-to-day for right now. Buffalo opens up their season against the Jets on Monday, and the defense will take a major hit if the veteran has to sit out in Week 1.
Micah Hyde (neck) will be placed on IR Saturday and will miss the remainder of the 2022 season.
Hyde is suffering from a herniated disc and the team hopes that he can make a full recovery and return in 2023. The Bills will likely turn to Damar Hamlin to fill the free safety spot heading into Week 3 and now potentially for the remainder of the season. The loss of Hyde is massive for the Bills' defense and will be a hard void to fill.
Micah Hyde has been ruled out for the Bills Week 3 game against the Dolphins.
With Dante Jackson (neck) also sidelined, the Buffalo secondary is going to be very thin heading into this AFC East contest. Despite looking strong the first two weeks of the season, the Bills D/ST become a risky play this week for fantasy managers.
