Moss underwent a minor "tight rope" surgery on his ankle Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. This procedure realigns the ankle to its original position and should help Moss make a full recovery by the beginning of the offseason program. Moss finished the regular season with 112 carries for 481 yards (4.3 YPC) and four touchdowns, adding 14 receptions (18 targets) for 95 yards and a score. The rookie was in a timeshare with Devin Singletary by the end of the year. Singletary, who logged an 84 percent snap share in the divisional-round win over the Ravens, will lead the backfield for the remainder of the Bills' postseason run.
Moss (ankle) was moved to injured reserve Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Moss was already deemed out for the season after suffering an ugly ankle injury during Saturday's win over the Colts. In playoff formats that requires an official IR designation before a player can be replaced, Moss is now eligible to be swapped out.
Moss (ankle) will miss the remainder of the playoffs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The rookie third-round pick injured his ankle in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 27-24 win over the Colts, taking 11 touches for 47 yards before his departure. Devin Singletary worked in a three-down role when Moss missed three games earlier in the season, averaging 14 carries and four targets on 89, 89 and 63 percent of snaps in Weeks 3-5. The second-year pro figures to handle a large role again, but the Bills could also turn to T.J. Yeldon for some backfield snaps. Either way, the offense will live and die with QB Josh Allen.
Moss is slated to miss time due to the ankle injury he suffered during Saturday's 27-24 wild-card win over the Colts, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Prior to his departure early in the fourth quarter, Moss managed 47 yards from scrimmage on 11 touches, both of which ended up leading Bills running backs. There's worry from the team that he'll be out for the remainder of the playoffs, a scenario that would mean Devin Singletary leads the backfield moving forward.
Moss left Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts due to an ankle injury. After the second play of the fourth quarter, Moss required a cart to get off the field and quickly was deemed doubtful to return. Considering the designation, he likely will end his day with seven carries for 21 yards and four catches (on four targets) for 26 yards. With T.J. Yeldon a healthy scratch Saturday, the Bills backfield has been whittled down to Devin Singletary and Taiwan Jones.
