The Bills will miss at least a few key defensive players for Sunday’s league game with the Dolphins.

Head coach Sean McDermott announced on Friday that safety Micah Hyde, cornerback Dane Jackson and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips are all out for week three.

Hyde and Jackson are each dealing with a neck injury. Phillips has a hamstring injury that has kept him out of practice this week.

The Bills can also do without safety Jordan Poyer, who has a foot injury. Poyer was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, but did not participate on Thursday.

“He’s one of those who’s in that group — and we’ve got a few of those guys, maybe three or four — who [it] it remains to be seen if they will be able to [play] on Sunday,” McDermott said in his Friday video conference. “So I’ll know a little more today. It may not be final after today, but we’re going for it one day at a time.”

Given the strength of Miami’s receiving corps — Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle each had over 170 yards last week — there are some major concerns in Buffalo’s secondary for this week.

“Listen, I know we have some injuries here, but I continue to have a lot of confidence in our football team, a lot of confidence in the backend,” said McDermott.

Buffalo’s final injury report with game statuses will be released later on Friday.
