Bills head coach Sean McDermott gave updates Monday afternoon on a number of players that sustained injuries during Sunday's game in Miami.
McDermott confirmed that rookie cornerback Christian Benford broke his hand against the Dolphins and will require surgery this week. McDermott expects Benford to be out "a couple of weeks", further reducing the depth at CB for the Bills with Tre'Davious White and Dane Jackson also injured.
More tough news for the team as McDermott shared that OL Tommy Doyle tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
In addition, WR Jake Kumerow is "week-to-week" with a high ankle sprain and OL Ryan Bates is in concussion protocol.
One positive note is that QB Josh Allen is only experiencing soreness, according to McDermott. Allen received X-rays on his throwing hand following the game in Miami but nothing concerning popped up.
"He's fine, other than soreness overall," McDermott said.
The status for DT Ed Oliver (ankle), DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and S Jordan Poyer (foot) is still unclear heading into Week 4 at Baltimore, but McDermott said all three are "improving".
Despite the injuries piling up for the Bills, McDermott reiterated his confidence in the team moving forward.
"You try to do your best with the resources you have," McDermott said.
