4 Defensive Starters in Jeopardy of Missing Bills-Dolphins Game
It's probably the most anticipated Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins game in a few years, at the very least.
The Bills will play at the Dolphins this Sunday at 1 pm. at Hard Rock Stadium. It will be the Bills first divisional game of 2022 and thee Dolphin's second (New England in week 1).
The Bills have destroyed their first two opponents, with the Los Angeles Rams (last year's defending Super Bowl champions) and the Tennessee Titans (last year's number one seed in the AFC). They're the highly regarded best team in the NFL.
But Buffalo plays a Miami team who is also 2-0 and coming off a huge comeback victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
The Bills have run into injury problems this week, as they had 11 players on the team's injury report on Wednesday. We're awaiting to see if many of them will play in Sunday's game but head coach Sean McDermott announced at his Thursday press conference that four players will not be practicing today.
Jordan Phillips, Dane Jackson, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer all will miss practice today.
All other players will either practice in full or in a limited capacity, including Dawson Knox, Mitch Morse, Gabe Davis, Tim Settle and Ed Oliver -- all of whom were on Wednesday's injury report.
Since Saturday is a travel day, that likely means Phillips, Jackson, Hyde and Poyer need to practice in some capacity tomorrow, in order to play Sunday. Typically, players who miss practice all week do not play in the game.
The Bills secondary would be severely shorthanded if Jackson, Hyde and Poyer cannot play, especially against the likes of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
