The Buffalo Bills have been marred by injuries throughout the 2022 season. Buffalo enters Week 10 with several health-related question marks, including one at quarterback.
Now the Bills have ruled out two key players ahead of their matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Both EDGE Gregory Rousseau and safety Jordan Poyer are out for Sunday's contest, according to head coach Sean McDermott. This isn't a major surprise since both players failed to practice earlier in the week, but it's still disappointing news for Buffalo's already-hurting defense.
Rousseau is currently nursing a high-ankle sprain he suffered last Sunday against the New York Jets. The injury prevented him from playing all of the second half last week and will now sideline him for at least one full game. He started in each of the team's first eight contests, racking up 5.0 sacks, 7 tackles for loss and 9 QB hits so far.
Poyer, meanwhile, is slated to miss his fourth game of the year after previously sitting out due to foot and rib issues. He's now dealing with a serious elbow injury he suffered in Week 8 and sidelined him for the team's previous game. The former First All-Pro selection has been a difference-maker when on the field, recording 4 interceptions and 6 passes defended in just five games.
The Bills' injury troubles could significantly shift Sunday's game in the Minnesota Vikings' favor. Buffalo is currently a 3.5-point favorite ahead of this showdown, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
