Orchard Park, N.Y. (WGR 550) - It was a mixed bag of injury news for the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, as they got back on the field to continue preparations to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida.
Prior to the chilly and rainy practice just outside the ADPRO Sports Training Center, head coach Sean McDermott informed the media that four players would not be participating, including both starting safeties Micah Hyde (neck) and Jordan Poyer (foot), as well as starting cornerback Dane Jackson (neck) and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (hamstring).
That’s three of five starters in a secondary that’s getting ready to face Dolphins wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
While those four players did not participate in practice, two of them - Jackson and Poyer - were on the field, but off to the side watching their position groups.
There was also some encouraging news on the injury front.
Wide receiver Gabriel Davis (ankle) and defensive tackles Ed Oliver (ankle) and Tim Settle (calf) were all participating during the portion of practice open to the media and were listed as "limited" on the day's official injury report. All three missed Monday night’s win over the Tennessee Titans.
Tight end Dawson Knox, who was listed on Wednesday’s injury report as a "did not practice" with a foot injury, and center Mitch Morse, who left Monday's game with an elbow injury but returned later, were also listed as "limited."
