Bad News For Bills Fans Hoping to See ‘Beloved’ Former Bills Player This Sunday
The Buffalo Bills are off today, but they already have their sights set on this Sunday's game at Highmark Stadium.
The Bills host The Washington Football team at 1 pm on Sunday, in what Bills fans hope is the second win of the season and bring the Bills over the .500 mark (2-1).
The Washington Football Team comes to Highmark Stadium this Sunday and Bills fans were excited to see the return of former Bills quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick signed a one-year contract with Washington to be their starter this season.
Unfortunately, Fitzpatrick will not be playing against his former team on Sunday.
During Washington's regular-season opener last Sunday, Fitzpatrick injured his hip and was placed on injured reserve. He likely won't be back until later this season.
That means the Bills will face backup quarterback, Taylor Heinicke, who actually started Washington's wild-card playoff game last season.
It's a disappointment because Fitz is still loved here in Buffalo and he's 38 years old, so it's reasonable to believe this would have been the last chance to see him live in Buffalo before he retires.
Fitzpatrick played for the Bills from 2009-2012. He permanently took over as the team's starter in week 3 of the 2010 season.
Fitz will still be in the stadium, just not on the field. We know how much he loves Western New York restaurants, such as Mulberry and Dandelions, so perhaps he visits one of them before Sunday's game.
We still love you, Fitz. Get better soon.
