The Buffalo Bills were back on the practice field Friday for training camp after having an off day Thursday. However, they saw one of their key players leave practice early due to an injury.

According to ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg, Micah Hyde went up to make a play on a pass by Josh Allen and looked to have the interception. However, hit the ground hard and lost the interception and quickly after that Jordan Poyer called trainers over.

She did follow up on the initial tweet that Hyde was limping on the sideline and would eventually head to the locker room on a cart.

Micah Hyde one of the most important players on the Buffalo Bills

Micah Hyde joined the Buffalo Bills in 2017 as a free agent and alongside Jordan Poyer have developed into one of the top safety duos in the league. They are a key part of this defense and a big reason the Bills had one of the best secondaries over the past few years.

Since joining in 2017, he has missed only two regular seasons over five seasons and has 14 interceptions and 35 passes defended with the Buffalo Bills. This past season he even earned his first career All-Pro nomination.

The hope is that this is not a serious injury and at worst, he misses a few training camp practices. The Bills secondary looks like it will already be tested early in the season with the potential absence of Tre’Davious White. He is currently on the PUP list as he tries to recover from a torn ACL last year.

If Hyde is forced to miss extended time, the Bills would likely look to Jaquan Johnson or Damar Hamlin as potential replacements. However, it seems unlikely that they would be able to produce at the level that Micah Hyde has.
