Bills Fans Shocked at the Injury Jordan Poyer Has Played Through
The Buffalo Bills have a chance to wrap up the one seed in the AFC this season, as long as they win their final two games.
While their season-finale against the New England Patriots in Orchard Park looks very doable, tonight's game in Cincinnati against the Bengals will be their toughest test since their game in Kansas City back in early October.
The Bills (12-3) and the Bengals (11-4) are the one and three seeds in the AFC and are both fighting to see who will get that first-round bye, along with home field advantage throughout the postseason.
The Bills are as healthy as they have been in a few weeks, with the only question mark entering the game being safety Jordan Poyer. However, according to reports, Poyer will play tonight for the Bills.
However, what we did not know until today is what Poyer had played through all season.
Poyer told Lisa Salters of ESPN that he has been playing through a torn lateral meniscus.
The knee has two meniscuses, the medial and lateral. A lateral tear is what doctors had hoped what was wrong with Von Miller's knee but then exploratory surgery discovered ACL damage.
Poyer also injured his elbow in training camp and he's had an elbow brace on ever since.
The fact he has played at this high a level, with a torn lateral meniscus, is incredible. Buffalo is undefeated with Poyer in in the lineup this season and he will be asked to do a lot tonight, against what is arguably the best wide receiving core in the NFL.
