Dawson Knox

The final player is tight end Dawson Knox who has been dealing with injuries since Week 2 of the season. Since that game, Knox has not had a full practice as he deals with a foot and hamstring injury.

Remarkably he only missed one game to this point, which was Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This past week against the Chiefs, Knox looked more like the tight end from last season as he made a big 20-yard catch and then had the game-winning touchdown reception in the closing minutes.

The Buffalo Bills offense has looked great to this point of the season but there is no denying that Dawson Knox brings a different dynamic to this group. He is an athletic player for a tight end and challenges defenses down the middle of the field that opens up more plays on the outside for Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

If Dawson Knox is able to put these lingering injuries behind him coming out of the bye week, it will be a big boost for the offense.
