Buffalo Bills have starting secondary for first time since 2021

The final storyline is that for the first time since Thanksgiving 2021 the Buffalo Bills could have their starting secondary. During that game in 2021, Tre'Davious White suffered a torn ACL that forced him to miss the remainder of the 2021 season and a good portion of last year.

Once he did return, the Buffalo Bills would already have lost starting safety Micah Hyde. He suffered a neck injury in Week 2 that forced him to miss the remainder of the season.

The Buffalo Bills would be able to re-sign Jordan Poyer in the offseason and it looked like the team was on track to have all three players on the field for a regular season game in well over a year. However, that could be in jeopardy as Sean McDermott said before practice on Wednesday that Hyde is dealing with a back injury.

The good news was that Hyde was on the practice field on Wednesday but with this game being on Monday night, the Bills didn't have to release an injury report for that practice. It will be interesting to see what his participation is moving forward as this will be an indication if the former Pro Bowl safety will be able to play against the Jets.
