The Buffalo Bills saw All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer go down with an injury Tuesday and as expected, Bills Mafia awaited the final results with bated breath.

The initial reports that came out stated a suspicion that Poyer suffered a hyperextended elbow. But, the team wanted to see what Poyer’s MRI said before making an official declaration.

Sure enough, ESPN‘s Adam Schefter confirmed that Poyer did in fact hyperextend his elbow. Therefore, he’ll miss the next few weeks.

The good news, however, is that the Bills expect Poyer to be ready for the Week 1 showdown against the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, where he’ll obviously be needed for a variety of reasons.

Even though Poyer appears to have dodged a major bullet, this is another blow to the Buffalo secondary. John Butler’s unit is still awaiting the return of Tre’Davious White, who is on the PUP list; and Micah Hyde, the Bills’ other starting safety, has been limited, recently, due to hip soreness.

But, fortunately, all three have a chance to be ready and healthy to go by the time the season starts.
