Hyde (ankle) is active for Sunday's game in Arizona.
This is a nice development for the Bills considering Hyde couldn't even practice Friday after being limited Thursday. With the Buffalo secondary being depleted due to some COVID-19 related inactives, having a regular like Hyde in the lineup should go a long way.
Hyde (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Hyde appeared on Thursday's injury report as a limited participant before being held out of Friday's practice entirely. The veteran safety normally handles an every-down gig in Buffalo's secondary, so it's possible that maintenance has played a role in his lack of practice activity, but it looks like a decision on his Week 10 status may not come until inactives are released prior to Sunday's 4:05 P.M. EST kickoff.
Hyde was a new addition to the injury report Thursday, as he's listed as limited due to an ankle injury.
There's a big difference between having a minor lingering injury managed during practice vs. suffering one and having to leave the session, so we'll monitor Hyde's practice participation Friday. His availability Sunday is pretty important given the Cardinals' high-powered ways.
Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Hyde has cleared the league's concussion protocol, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Hyde was a full participant in Thursday's practice, so it looks like he's all set to slot into his usual starting role at safety during Sunday's game against the Seahawks. His presence across from Jordan Poyer will be key as Buffalo looks to accomplish the tall task of slowing down Russell Wilson.
Hyde (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Hyde's full practice doesn't necessarily guarantee that he's cleared the concussion protocol, but at the very least he's making significant progress. If he's able to gain full medical clearance in time for Sunday's game against Seattle, Hyde stands to draw his usual start at safety.
Hyde, who missed the Week 8 contest against the Patriots due to a concussion, was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.
That puts Hyde in better position to play Sunday against the Seahawks. Hyde and Jordan Poyer form one of the league's better safety tandems, and it's going to take quite an effort to slow down Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in Week 9. We'll see if Hyde can ramp up his practice participation to a full level by Friday.
Hyde (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Hyde obviously could not clear the concussion protocol in time, while Dean Marlowe and Jaquan Johnson will now see more work against New England. The Bills also have a few hybrid types who can help backfill Hyde's normal duties, though, to be clear, his loss is a notable one for a Buffalo defense that's already struggled at times in 2020.
Hyde (concussion) did not practice for the third straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Coach Sean McDermott hasn't ruled Hyde out yet, so we suppose he'll have one more shot to clear the final stage of the concussion protocol. The starting safety is familiar enough with the scheme that, if cleared, he could handle a full workload without any practice time.
Hyde (concussion) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Hyde still has time to work his way through the league-mandated protocol and suit up for Sunday's game against New England, though if he can't go, it will be a big loss for the Bills -- he forms one of the league's better safety tandems with Jordan Poyer.
Hyde did not practice Wednesday, as he's in the concussion protocol following a collision late in Sunday's game against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The Bills' secondary is a banged-up group heading into an important Week 8 meeting with the Patriots, so we'll see if the key starting safety can get through the protocol and be cleared for Sunday's contest.
Hyde (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Las Vegas.
Hyde put forth a 'DNP/LP/FP' practice slate this week, and it looks as though he's trending in the right direction to play his usual every-down role in Las Vegas. With back-to-back nine tackle games under his belt, Hyde could be a solid option in IDP formats.
Hyde (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday after missing Wednesday's session.
The starting free safety is trending in the right direction after missing some important action during the Week 3 win over the Rams. He's one of the team's better defensive players, so Buffalo will surely hope he's out there to face the Raiders and Derek Carr, a veteran who's been surprisingly effective to date this season.
Hyde (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday.
Hyde left this past Sunday's wild win over the Rams due to this ankle injury, and it's keeping him out of practice to open the week. If Hyde's unable to heal up in time for Sunday's trip to Las Vegas, the safety's absence would be a major hit to the Bills' secondary given how poorly Buffalo's defense played in the second half against Los Angeles.
Hyde (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
It's unclear how Hyde suffered the injury, however, it was serious enough to force him to miss game time. With the veteran out, look for Jaquan Johnson to take over as the team's main free safety.
Hyde registered 72 tackles, two passes defensed, one interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in 16 regular-season games in 2019.
Hyde may actually be better in real life than in fantasy, as he seldom gets beat for a deep play and works with teammate Jordan Poyer to regularly out-scheme the opponent -- the two often switch up coverage based on what they see at the line of scrimmage. Buffalo has had a top pass defense ever since Hyde united with Poyer three seasons ago, and the duo is signed and will be at it again next season. Unfortunately for his IDP value, other safeties simply get more stops -- while Hyde is a consistent source of turnovers, he doesn't get enough to close the gap on the 100-tackle guys. If you have to choose between Buffalo's two study safeties, Poyer and his higher tackle totals is usually the better route.
Hyde led the Bills with 10 tackles and added a forced fumble during Thursday's win at Dallas.
Hyde was shaken up briefly in the first half but returned shortly thereafter and played a spectacular game as the Bills upset the Cowboys. The veteran safety now has 56 tackles, two passes defensed, two forced fumbles and an interception on the season.
Hyde made nine tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 24-9 win over Washington.
Hyde notched his highest single-game tackle total of the season versus Washington's run-happy offense. The starting free safety normally has capped IDP value due to lacking tackle volume, but he's averaged seven stops per game since Buffalo's bye in Week 6.
Hyde notched five solo tackles during Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
Hyde also returned an onside kick for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, securing Buffalo's win over Miami. The 28-year-old plays a key role in the Bills' secondary, but his low weekly tackle totals -- his game high is five this season -- prevent him from possessing as much upside in IDP formats as fellow Bills safety Jordan Poyer.
Hyde had three solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Hyde came up clutch with the Patriots at the two-yard line and picked off Tom Brady in the end zone, as the Bills managed to give up only nine offensive points for the game. The 28-year-old will continue to work as Buffalo's starting free safety, but his IDP value is somewhat limited due to his tackle totals (13 through four games).
Hyde (neck) participated fully and didn't require a noncontact jersey in practice Sunday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Hyde sat out of Thursday's preseason opener against the Colts. The 28-year-old sported a noncontact jersey in practice Friday. Now fully healthy, Hyde is set for a starting role in Buffalo's secondary.
