The Buffalo Bills’ injury problems keep piling up, Jordan Poyer ruled out Vs The Packers due to elbow injury

The Buffalo Bills are worn out with injuries this season, and the number keeps rising. Jordan Poyer is the latest addition to the list of injured players. The 31-year-old player was ruled out with an elbow injury in Week 8 while playing against the Green Bay Packers. The team has confirmed that the player has left the contest and will not be back anytime soon.

From the looks of the final Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers Week 8 injury reports, only two Bills players—right tackle Spencer Brown and running back Taiwan Jones—carried injury designations going into the contest. Brown was ruled out on Friday morning, while Jones was questionable.

Poyer injured his elbow during training camp and missed Buffalo’s preseason games while recovering. He returned to the game before the season began, but he wore a huge brace on his left elbow. However, he stated after the game that the injury was not the same as the preseason hyperextension.

Poyer returned to the lineup and intercepted Lamar Jackson to help the Bills pull off a Week 4 come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens, but he suffered a rib injury that kept him out for another week. He played against the Kansas City Chiefs despite taking a van to Arrowhead Stadium because he couldn’t fly due to pneumothorax.

Jordan is now out for the season due to an elbow injury. There was no specific play in which he was injured or aggravated a possible lingering elbow injury. The player said that he felt a pop in his elbow and added that he’s hoping the best after the MRI and X-Ray.

Fans are keeping their expectations low this season as the team keeps getting ridden with injuries one after another. How do you expects Bills to perform in the upcoming week with yet another player out? Let us know in the comment below.
