The Buffalo Bills are preparing for their opening plyaoff game agianst the Miami Dolphins this weekend, but they will be taking the field on Sunday without one of their best defensive players.

Micah Hyde Injury Update

Safety Micah Hyde has been activated and his practice window opened but he is not expected to play in Sunday's contest. The same goes for wideout Jamison Crowder.

Hyde hasn't been on the field since Week 2 of this season, but Buffalo is hopeful he can return if they should advance past the Dolphins. A key member of the Dolphins defense for the past six seasons, the Pro Bowler will make an already strong unit even better once he's back on the field.

The Bills are currently 13.5-point home favorites against the Dolphins in their Wild Card game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
