The Buffalo Bills had a lengthy injury report for most of the week but the good news is that it doesn’t appear many will be missing this week’s game against the New York Jets. However, one player is guaranteed to miss this week and he is a key part of their defense.

Earlier on Friday, it was confirmed that safety Jordan Poyer will miss this week’s game against the Jets after suffering another elbow injury last week against the Green Bay Packers. This will be the third game that Poyer has already missed this season after only missing two in the previous five seasons with Buffalo.

The question for the coaching staff will be who will replace Poyer in the starting lineup. In the previous two games, it has been Jaquan Johnson that has stepped in. However, the addition of Dean Marlowe before the trade deadline gives the team another option for the position.

Matt Milano and Spencer Brown were listed as questionable for the Buffalo Bills in Week 9

The only other two players who have injury designations going into this game are linebacker Matt Milano and right tackle Spencer Brown. Milano has been dealing with an oblique injury this week and missed the first two practices of the week but was able to get in a limited practice on Friday.

As for Spencer Brown, he was limited all week as he works his way back from an ankle injury suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. If Brown is not able to play this week, it will be David Quessenberry getting his second start.

The good news though is that players like Tremaine Edmunds, Von Miller, and Mitch Morse all avoided injury designations after missing at least one practice this week due to injuries. They should all be set to play this week against the Jets.
