Bills Without Two Key Players Today Against the Dolphins
The Buffalo Bills are about to play the Miami Dolphins at Highmark Stadium this afternoon and hopes are high for a 13-3 Bills team, who is looking to make the Super Bowl for the first time since 1993.
The Bills are getting as healthy as they’ve been in weeks. They won’t have safety Micah Hyde or wide receiver Jamison Crowder today. Despite both returning to practice this week, opening their 21-day window, head coach Sean McDermott says they won’t play today and in Hyde’s case, the earliest he would be back is the AFC Championship game; if the Bills make it that far.
The Bills just released their inactives and they will be without two key players; one on offense and the other on defense.
Wode receiver Isaiah McKenzie and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips are both out today against the Dolphins. So is cornerback Christian Benford.
As for the Miami Dolphins, they won’t have starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is still in concussion protocol. Backup Teddy Bridgewater has a broken finger but will be the emergency backup today for rookie third-stringer, Skylar Thompson.
Miami also won’t have running back Raheem Mostert, guard Liam Eichenberg and cornerback Byron Jones; among others.
Tackle Terron Armstead is active.
The Bills are almost two-touchdown favorites but know they have a tall task, slowing down wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
Kickoff is at 1 pm.
