Could Micah Hyde Be Returning for the Buffalo Bills This Season?
The Buffalo Bills will be playing in another bad weather game this Saturday, when they take on the Bears in Chicago.
The biggest threat for the Bills will be getting to Chicago on Friday, but the historic winter storm that will impact much of the Midwest and Great Lakes could shut down Chicago for travel because of heavy snow and dangerous winds. The weather for the game will be quiet but bitterly cold, with negative wind chills and 9 degrees for a kickoff temperature.
The Bills have clinched a playoff spot and even though they will most likely win the AFC East, they will need a win or a Miami Dolphins loss or tie to officially clinch the division. They can do that on Christmas Eve.
The Bills have been bit hard by the injury bug this season, losing edge rusher Von Miller for the season, along with tackle Tommy Doyle also done for the year. They lost wide receiver Jamison Crowder for what could be the season, but there's still a chance he could return for the playoffs.
Safety Micah Hyde had neck surgery at the end of September and it was assumed he was lost for the remainder of the season. That may not be the case after all.
Micah Hyde was seen working off to the side with the likes of Jordan Phillips, Christian Benford and Jamison Crowder, per Sal Capaccio of WGR radio in Buffalo.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane said last week they have not ruled out anything, in regards to a Hyde return by the end of the season or playoffs.
Hyde told Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic that he would love to come back and would not close the door on a return this season.
It's still a long shot for Hyde to come back but if the Bills make the AFC Championship game or Super Bowl, that's when Hyde could maybe, possible, return to the lineup.
We have to wait and see.
