The Buffalo Bills entered their bye week on a high note with a big 24-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. They are now 5-1 on the season and were sitting atop the AFC.

Even with all the injuries the Bills have had to deal with to this point, the 2022 season has gotten off to a great start for Buffalo. While it isn’t necessarily exactly the midpoint, it certainly feels like the bye week has divided up the season into two halves.

Now looking ahead, these are four questions that the Buffalo Bills have for the remainder of the regular season coming out of the bye week.

When will Tre’Davious White return and will he play at that All-Pro level?

One of the biggest questions for the Buffalo Bills, and it has been since training camp, is when will Tre’Davious White return. He suffered a torn ACL on Thanksgiving last year and the hope was that he would be ready for the regular season.

White began training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and remained there to begin the regular season. Since the Bills did have him on the PUP list to begin the regular season, he was required to miss at least the first four games of the season.

He has now missed the first six but the Bills did open the 21-day window prior to the Kansas City Chiefs game. This means he could begin practicing but the team will have to move him to the active roster prior to November 1st.

Hopefully, he is able to return this week and this question should be answered fairly quickly. However, the second question is what level will Tre’Davious White be able to play at coming off the knee injury?

The Buffalo Bills have gotten good production from their trio of cornerbacks (Dane Jackson, Kaiir Elam, Christian Benford) but when Tre’Davious White is playing at the level he is capable of, it drastically changes this defense.
