  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Healing, but no firm return date

    Coach Sean McDermott said Thursday that Poyer (hyperextended elbow) is "trending in the right direction" but did not provide a target date for his return, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports. It would seem highly doubtful that Poyer will play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Colts, though the injury does not sound too long term in nature and Poyer still has plenty of time to be ready for Week 1. However, it's worth noting that's three days earlier in Buffalo's case, as the Bills kick off the season Sept. 8 on Thursday Night Football against the Rams.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Hyperextends elbow

    Poyer sustained a hyperextended elbow at Tuesday's practice and will be sidelined a couple weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Poyer made an early exit from the session and was looked at by the training staff before undergoing an MRI. Now that a diagnosis is confirmed, he'll likely be sidelined for the rest of training camp and the entirety of the preseason slate, with the aim to be ready for a Week 1 road matchup with the Rams.

    Poyer left practice early Tuesday with an arm injury and will need an MRI, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Suffers arm injury

    Poyer left Tuesday's practice after suffering an arm injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Poyer was attended to by trainers, who sent him to the locker room and his day was over. The Bills just dodged a bullet with Micah Hyde's minor hip injury, but Poyer is equally important to the defense's success, and the team would be hurting if he's out for any length of time.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Still sorting out contract

    Poyer, who has been unhappy with his contract situation and missed OTAs, is at training camp Sunday and will practice, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Bills GM Brandon Beane and Poyer's agent Drew Rosenhaus are trying to work something out in terms of a long-term deal for the prized safety, who's a key part of one of the league's best secondaries.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Plans to attend minicamp

    Poyer will attend mandatory minicamp this week, though he's still seeking an extension with Buffalo, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Poyer already opted out of OTAs due to his displeasure with his contract situation. The Bills reportedly are in contact with his agents, though, and the fact he returned to practice could be a good sign that a deal is imminent. Poyer and Micah Hyde are considered one of the best safety duos in the league, so Buffalo has a strong interest in keeping the two together for this season's run at the Super Bowl.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Absent from OTAs

    Poyer is not participating in this week's OTAs, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Poyer is believed to be unhappy with his contract situation, especially after some of the team's other key players have gotten their deals reworked recently. The Bills have to be incredibly happy with what the safety brings to the defense, as he's only missed one game in his career and posted 93 or more tackles in all of his five seasons with the team, but at some point the team has to pick and choose how it will spend its money as it gets tighter against the salary cap.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Huge day in blowout win

    Poyer tallied 10 tackles (four solo) along with one interception in Sunday's 45-17 divisional win against the Jets. Poyer was an extremely disruptive force Sunday as he matched his best tackling game of the season while also recording his fourth interception in 2021, tying Broncos safety Justin Simmons for fourth in the NFL. The veteran safety looks to continue his strong play as he faces off against a turnover prone Carson Wentz next Sunday.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Starts week limited

    Poyer (ankle) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday. Poyer missed Sunday's win over the Texans, which was only the second regular-season game he's ever missed in five seasons with the Bills. It looks like he's determined to make this a one-game thing by starting the week with some level of practice, though the injury was obviously severe enough that he'll need to prove to the coaching staff by Friday that he's ready to return for a big game against the Chiefs.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Ankle injury to be monitored

    Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Poyer, who left Sunday's win over Washington with an ankle injury, is "day-to-day," Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Even with the injury, Poyer's day was an IDP success since he picked off a Taylor Heinicke pass while adding two tackles before departing. The Bills will have a better idea on his status for Sunday's game against the Texans as the practice week ramps up starting Wednesday.

    Poyer tallied three tackles (two solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 17-10 victory over the Steelers. Poyer finished the contest with lower tackle totals than normal, but he made an impact in other areas of the game with a pick -- one of four on the night for the Bills -- and a fumble recovery. He played every defensive snap for Buffalo and should continue to have a presence in the box score.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Minor shoulder injury

    Poyer briefly left Sunday's win over Tennessee due to a shoulder injury but was able to return after missing just a few plays, Leo Roth of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports. With a Week 6 bye up ahead, we imagine Poyer should be just fine for the Week 7 divisional matchup against the Dolphins. The safety logged five tackles in the victory and now sports an impressive 33 stops, a sack, an interception, a pass defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery through five games.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Excellent opening performance

    Poyer made nine tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Jets. Poyer posted 100 tackles last year, proving himself as a capable run stopper. He is mimicking that success early in 2019, and he dropped Jets QB Sam Darnold to add to his value. Poyer also has ball-hawk capabilities, as he has nine interceptions over the last two years. He'll look to bring those out in Week 2's matchup versus the Giants.
