The Buffalo Bills had almost perfect attendance at their first day of minicamp on Tuesday with only one player missing. Unfortunately, that one player is a key part of this team as Stefon Diggs did not participate and his absence was described as 'very concerning' by Sean McDermott.
For a team that has Super Bowl aspirations, his absence is far from ideal as the margin of error is very small to not only win the Super Bowl but just reach that game. The fact that Stefon Diggs was not on the practice field not only impacts him but his teammates as well. However, the impact isn't necessarily all bad and these are three players impacted the most.
3 Buffalo Bills impacted the most by Stefon Diggs' absence at minicamp
The most obvious one is Josh Allen, who will not have his top wide receiver on the field. The Buffalo Bills have made a number of changes to their personnel this offseason and it is not only important to the coaching staff to see how all these pieces fit but Josh Allen as well.
Since joining the Bills, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs have had a great connection on the field. They don't necessarily need these practices during minicamp but it is important for the Bills quarterback to see the offense as a whole and how all these players move together running routes on the field.
