ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills ruled out starting safety Micah Hyde and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips on Friday, and face question marks at other key defensive positions for their AFC East showdown at the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Hyde is out after hurting his neck in a 41-7 win over Tennessee on Monday, while Phillips injured his hamstring against the Titans.
The Bills lineup could be thinned further because of uncertainty regarding the status of starting safety Jordan Poyer (foot) and starting cornerback Dane Jackson (neck), who were also hurt against Tennessee.
Jackson was taken to a hospital after his head snapped back during a collision with a teammate.
