Head coach Sean McDermott opened this morning's press conference with heartbreaking news.

The Bills coach offered his condolences to tight end Dawson Knox and the Knox Family on the passing of Luke Knox, Dawson's younger brother.

"Our hearts go out to Dawson and his family during this time, and we're right there with him and supporting him and his family," McDermott said. "Just tragic news that I woke up to this morning. We love him and we support him, and just unfortunate news this morning."

Luke, 22, was a member of the Florida International University football program. The linebacker transferred to FIU from Ole Miss this past offseason.

Dawson, a 2019 Buffalo Bills draft pick, is entering his fourth season with the Bills after he had a career-best season in 2021. His nine touchdowns last season are the most by a Bills tight end in franchise history.

"We're going to do all we can to be there for him and his family," McDermott said.
