One of the biggest questions heading in to the Buffalo Bills season opener against New England on Sunday has been if franchise safety Jairus Byrd will suit up and play for the first time this season.
If the official injury report for week one is to be believed, it appears that it’s unlikely at best that Byrd gets on the field on Sunday. According to the team, Byrd is being listed as doubtful due to a plantar fasciitis injury in both feet.
Byrd has been practicing on a limited basis since signing his franchise tender three weeks ago, but has yet to really get involved with the team as he’s trying to heal the same injury that plagued defensive end Mario Williams earlier in the year.
Other names on the injury report are cornerback Stephon Gilmore, kicker Dustin Hopkins and guard Doug Legursky who are all out on Sunday. Rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel is listed as probable, but, barring a major setback, will play in the team’s home opener.
