  • Bills' Tyrel Dodson: Posts best NFL season

    Dodson played in all 17 games of the regular season for Buffalo, logging 74 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

    The fourth-year player out of Texas A&M became a full-time starter for the Bills and posted more defensive snaps (519) than in all three of his previous seasons combined. Dodson is only the third-best linebacker on the team, as he sits behind Matt Milano and Terrel Bernard in terms of productivity. Rookie Dorian Williams -- plus whoever the Bills might bring in during the draft or via free agency -- could have an angle to Dodson's starting role in 2024, but he did enough in 2023 that someone is going to have to take the job from him.

    Dodson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    Dodson sustained a shoulder injury in the Bills' Week 18 win that held him out of the team's wild-card affair, but it seems as if he's got a shot at playing in the divisional round against the Chiefs after beginning the week with two limited practice sessions. The 25-year-old is expected to carry an injury designation into Sunday's outing unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

  • Bills' Tyrel Dodson: Inactive versus Steelers

    Dodson (shoulder) is inactive for Monday's wild-card round game against the Steelers, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

    Dodson, who was limited in practice Friday, approached the contest listed as questionable, but he'll sit this one out and target a potential return to action in the divisional round of the playoffs, should the Bills advance. In his absence Monday, look for Baylon Spector to see added linebacker snaps versus Pittsburgh.

  • Bills' Tyrel Dodson: Questionable for playoff game

    Dodson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card round game against the Steelers, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

    Dodson's set to be a limited participant once again in practice Friday. He was unable to return to the regular-season finale against the Dolphins after injuring his shoulder in the first half. If the starting linebacker is unable to play Sunday, Tyler Matakevich could take on a larger role in a game that may feature plenty of running plays with winter weather in the forecast.

    Dodson recorded seven tackles (six solo) including a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 32-6 win versus the Jets.

    The highlight of Dodson's day came when he punched the football out of the arms of Garrett Wilson and created a turnover for the first time this season. He's firmly on the IDP radar for the remainder of the year, especially so when the Bills travel to take on a run-heavy Philadelphia team in Week 12.
