The Bills have ruled S Micah Hyde (neck), CB Dane Jackson (neck), DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Ed Oliver (ankle) out for Sunday's game in Miami. S Jordan Poyer (foot) is also questionable. That's a large chunk of the starting defense and could soften the matchup for Miami offensive players. You should already have been planning to start Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, though. The injuries give a slight boost to QB Tua Tagovailoa, who we've had on the fringe of starter territory in our QB rankings. We'll check Poyer's status Sunday morning.

Bills S Micah Hyde and CB Dane Jackson missed practice Wednesday. Both players left Monday night's game with neck injuries that sent them to the hospital that night. We'd bet on neither playing this week but will keep an eye on the situation. S Jordan Poyer was limited with a foot injury. DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring) also missed practice, while DT Ed Oliver (ankle) returned to a limited practice after missing all last week.

Bills S Jordan Poyer put in a full practice Monday, indicating that his preseason elbow injury won't stop him from starting Week 1. We'll watch for confirmation ahead of Thursday night, but it appears Poyer is all the way back.

The Bills have placed CB Tre'Davious White on the regular-season PUP list, meaning he'll miss at least the first 4 games. White is still working back from a Nov. 25 ACL tear. Dane Jackson will start at 1 corner, with rookies Kaiir Elam and Christian Benford competing for the other outside spot. Taron Johnson returns as the lead slot man. Missing White certainly doesn't help the Buffalo defense. It does help the individual matchup for opponent #1 WRs.

Bills S Jordan Poyer returned over the weekend after missing nearly a month with an elbow injury. According to Katherine Fitzgerald of the Buffalo News, he expects to be ready to play in the regular-season opener, "as long as there's no setbacks." Poyer still has a little more than a week to knock off any rust. We'll see whether Buffalo indicates any limitation on his Week 1 playing time.

Bills S Jordan Poyer hyperextended his left elbow in practice this week. The AP reports that he's expected to miss "several weeks." That timeline could still return the vet ahead of the regular season. HC Sean McDermott also told reporters "maybe a week or 2." So we won't alter our IDP outlook for him just yet. We'll be watching for his return to the field, though.

The Bills moved up 2 spots in the 1st round of the NFL Draft to select CB Kaiir Elam from Florida. Elam stands 6'2 and ran a 4.39-second 40 at the Combine. He defensed 20 passes across 3 seasons with the Gators -- just 2 of those as a full-time starter. He should fight for a starting job right away in Buffalo.

CB Levi Wallace is joining the Steelers on a 2-year, $8 million deal, according to ESPN's Brooke Pryor. Wallace started 52 games over 4 seasons with the Bills, including all 17 last year. Wallace has been relevant for IDP leagues, especially those that require CBs. But he's not a special fantasy football option -- and likely won't be with the Steelers.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White tore his left ACL in Thursday night's win over the Saints and will miss the rest of the season, the team website reports. Dane Jackson filled in after White went down and figures to start in his place.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Saints after injuring his left knee. The team has deemed him doubtful to return. The worry is that the non-contact injury could be more serious than that. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. That leaves A.J. Klein in position for full playing time, a role in which he delivered nice fantasy numbers last week.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday after sitting out last week's win over the Jets. Edmunds returned for a limited Friday workout, though. We'll check his status Sunday. IDP managers might be better off if he doesn't play, as an active Edmunds would carry elevated re-injury risk. If he's out, A.J. Klein would see a full-time role again.
