1.) Micah Hyde

The good news for the secondary in Buffalo is that it looks like Jordan Poyer, who missed last week’s game against Miami, should be good to go for the Bills as he was a full participant in Thursday’s practice. However, with Tre’Davious White out, the centerfield of Poyer and Micah Hyde could be shadowing more towards the outside to provide assistance with the cornerbacks.

Hyde has been a captain and a veteran leader for the Bills for a long time, and he will need to find a way to provide the mentorship and support to the corners Benford, Jackson, and now Kaiir Elam. 

Not only will Hyde have to keep playing the middle of the field, but now he might have to be decisive in knowing whether to go outside the numbers or stay inside. This secondary will have all the attention of Bills fans because of the injury to White last week.
