The Bills and Dolphins are set to kick off from Highmark Stadium on Sunday at 1p.m. ET, and the AFC Wild Card matchup is going to be a good one. With Isaiah McKenzie trending in the wrong direction for the Bills, and the third-string quarterback ready to suit up for Miami, there are a lot of different directions that this game can go in. Let’s take a look at the Buffalo vs Miami Wild Card Injury Report.
Buffalo Bills Injury Report
Buffalo has not declared anyone officially out for Sunday’s Wild Card game. Sean McDermott announced on Friday morning that he will be monitoring Isaiah McKenzie, Jordan Phillips and Jordan Poyer.
Josh Allen was able to practice in full on Thursday, and will definitely play on Sunday. He has been dealing with an elbow injury but has been able to play through the injury. December 20th was the last time that he didn’t have a full practice, so he will definitely play on Sunday.
Isaiah McKenzie Injury Report
Isaiah picked up a hamstring injury last weekend and sat out practice on Thursday and Friday. There is a chance that they are just resting him and giving him some extra time to heal before the playoff game. His status will be up in the air for Sunday.
Jordon Poyer Injury Update
Jordon Poyer was able to put in a full practice on Friday, after being a DNP on Wednesday and limited in practice on Thursday. He has been dealing with a torn meniscus but was able to play through the injury last weekend, and will likely do the same this week.
Miami Dolphins Injury Report
There are seven players listed as questionable after Friday’s practice, one listed as doubtful, and two listed as out. While Miami is dealing with a slew of injured players, the fact that Tyreek Hill was named a first-team All-Pro for the fourth time in his career on Friday should give some confidence to his teammates.
Tua Tagovailoa Update
Tua will officially miss his fifth straight game on Sunday. He is remaining on concussion protocol after his third concussion of the season. Since Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a dislocated pinky injury on his throwing hand, rookie Skylar Thompson is preparing to start.
According to Field Yates, 49ers QB Brock Purdy and now Miami QB Skylar Thompson will make history this weekend as the lowest-drafted rookie QB’s to start a playoff game in NFL history.
Raheem Mostert Update
As expected, the Dolphins starting running back has been ruled out after having thumb surgery on Monday after reportedly breaking his thumb in Week 18. This means that Jeff Wilson Jr. and Salvon Ahmed will take most of the runs in the backfield.
Liam Eichenberg Injury Update
Left guard Liam Eichenberg remains doubtful as he is dealing with a hand injury. He exited the game against the Jets and headed straight to the blue medical tent last weekend. Robert Jones entered in his place and played at the position earlier in the season when Eichenberg was on IR. Eichenberg has had a considerable amount of penalties this season, whereas Jones has only had a couple. So having Jones start over Eichenberg might not be a bad play for Miami.
Right tackle Brandon Shell is questionable with an ankle and hand injury, but most are expecting him to be able to play. Left tackle Terron Armstead was able to practice in limited fashion on Friday, but he did not sound too sure of being able to suit up on Sunday with his four injuries.
Other notable players on the Miami injury report listed as questionable include linebacker Bradley Chubb, fullback Alec Ingold (both expected to play), tackle Kendall Lamm and receiver/returner Cedrick Wilson Jr.
