Released during the big victory against the Titans, Micah Hyde will no longer wear the Buffalo jersey this season. According to ESPN, the safety is placed on the injured list due to a neck injury. The player’s agent said he would be back in shape in 2023. Touched at the end of the 3rd quarter, he was taken to hospital after the match for observation.
Already deprived of Tre’Davious White still recovering from a knee injury, the defensive backfield loses another major player. Twice in the All Pro second team (2017 and 2021), Hyde forms with Jordan Poyer the most solid and regular safety duo in the league. Sean McDermott will have to find how to replace his player as effectively as possible. The depth at the post is not the great strength of the team.
Arrived in Buffalo in 2017 from Green Bay, Hyde quickly revealed himself as a leading player and an indisputable and indispensable starter. In 80 games with the Bills, he made 363 tackles, 9 interceptions and 35 passes defended.
Bills’ safety Micah Hyde will be put on IR today due to his recent neck injury, as his agent @jackbechta said. “Fortunately, we expect a healthy return for #23 in 2023,” Bechta tweeted.
