  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Remaining in Buffalo

    Poyer (head) agreed Wednesday with Buffalo on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Poyer briefly explored his options as a free agent, but the 31-year-old safety is opting to continue his career in Buffalo, where he's spent the last six seasons. He recorded 63 tackles (44 solo), four interceptions, eight pass breakups and one forced fumble across 12 regular-season appearances in 2022.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Exits Sunday's game early

    Poyer left Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Bengals early and is being evaluated for a head injury.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Good to go Monday night

    Poyer (knee) has been deemed active ahead of Monday Night Football versus Cincinnati, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Poyer was already expected to play despite being considered questionable due to a persistent knee injury. The 31-year-old has only been available for 11 games so far this season, though he is still a key piece of Buffalo's secondary when healthy. His availability could be a significant factor against the Bengals' star-studded passing attack led by quarterback Joe Burrow.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Question mark for big game

    Poyer (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game in Cincinnati, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports. Poyer logged a limited session Saturday after missing practice completely Thursday and Friday, so we have to imagine he's on the better side of questionable, though those using Poyer in IDP leagues won't know for sure until Monday afternoon. Poyer, who has four interceptions on the year, hasn't picked one off since Week 4, but he's one of the better safeties in the league and his potential presence could prove pivotal in trying to slow down Joe Burrow and a strong Cincinnati offense.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Ready to go Week 16

    Poyer (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday and does not carry a game status ahead of Saturday's contest versus Chicago. Poyer started Week 16 with back-to-back DNPs due to an unspecified knee issue. However, he already said Wednesday that he plans to suit up and reprise his every-down role at safety versus the Bears, so it appears his lack of participation could have simply been a precautionary move by Buffalo. Poyer has recorded a team-high four interceptions despite playing only 10 games so far this season.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Cleared for Week 6

    Poyer doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs. Poyer was sidelined for the Bills' blowout win over the Steelers in Week 5 due to injured ribs, but he returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, progressed to a full participant Friday, and has been cleared for Sunday. The starting safety's presence will go a long way in Buffalo's attempt to slow down Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City's league-leading scoring offense.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Confirmed out against Miami

    Poyer (foot) is inactive Week 3 against the Dolphins. Poyer's absence, combined with that of Micah Hyde (neck), will leave the Bills severely shorthanded and inexperienced at safety against a red-hot Miami passing attack. Look for Jaquan Johnson and Damar Hamlin to see a major uptick in reps.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Likely sitting out Week 3

    Poyer (foot) is not expected to play Sunday at Miami, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Poyer practiced in a limited capacity this week and appeared to be trending in the right direction, but it now appears he'll probably need to sit out at least one game as he recovers from a foot injury. With Micah Hyde (neck) on the injured reserve list, Jaquan Johnson and Damar Hamlin may both have to start Sunday and would be in for a tough test against Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

  • Bills' Jordan Poyer: Officially considered questionable

    Poyer (foot) is considered questionable to play Sunday versus the Dolphins after logging a limited practice Friday. Poyer returned to the practice field Friday, albeit in a limited fashion, which bodes well for his chances to play Sunday in Miami. The 31-year-old could be a game-time decision, while his running mate Micah Hyde (neck) has already been ruled out.

  • 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.

    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

  • 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.
