Getty Micah Hyde #23 of the Buffalo Bills reacts after an interception during the first quarter against the New England Patriots at Highmark Stadium on January 15, 2022 in Buffalo, New York.

While the Buffalo Bills absolutely dominated the Tennesee Titans 41-7 on Monday Night Football, the win was bittersweet as several key members of the team’s starting lineup went down with injuries, including safety Micah Hyde.

While Bills cornerback Dane Jackson exited the field in an ambulance after taking a horrific hit to the head just before halftime, it was revealed after the game that Hyde also landed up at the hospital on September 19 for a neck injury.

The All-Pro safety exited the game late in the third quarter after getting hit in the head. While Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams shared a positive update on Tuesday, reporting that Hyde was released from the hospital after undergoing medical tests, the 31-year-old veteran hasn’t participated in practice since.

On Thursday, September 222, The Buffalo News’ Mark Gaughan shared a troubling update, reporting that Hyde was “getting further consultation” and seeking “a more expert opinion on his injury out of town.” When Bills head coach Sean McDermott was directly asked on Thursday about whether or not Hyde was present at Highmark Stadium for practice, “I’m not going to go there,” he said.

However, both The Athletic‘s Joe Buscaglia and ESPN reporter Alaina Getzenberg tweeted that they saw Hyde in the locker room in Orchard Park on Thursday, which seems to indicate he didn’t have to travel too far to receive a second opinion.

While his presence at Orchard Park is a good sign, it seems highly unlikely the team captain will be ready to go when the Bills (2-0) take on their first divisional matchup against the Miami Dolphins (2-0) on Sunday, September 25. If that is the case, the Bills may need to look to Jaquan Johnson, their sixth-round pick from the 2019 NFL Draft, to start in his place.

“We believe in the next man up,” McDermott said. “We’d love to have those guys out there,” referring to Jackson, Hyde, and the lengthy list of injured Bills players, “But we’ll see how it plays out.”

While the team has not specifically defined or detailed the seriousness of Hyde’s injury, there’s worry concerning this isn’t the first time he’s suffered a neck injury. Back in 2015, when Hyde was a member of the Green Bay Packers, he was carted off the field after catching an interception during a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles with what The Score‘s Dan Wilkins reported as “neck spasms.”

Thankfully, the injury wasn’t serious, and he was back on the field two weeks later for the Packers’ season opener against the Chicago bears. In 2019, he suffered a neck injury during the miss preseason and sat out one game, per Banged Up Bills. During the 2020 NFL season, the Bills starter suffered a concussion while playing against the New York Jets and missed one game.

Hyde Was Listed as the Top-12 Best Safety in the NFL

Over the summer, USA Today’s Doug Farrar ranked Hyde as the 12th-best safety in the league. “Hyde ranked seventh on our safety list last year after a 2020 season in which he allowed 15 catches on 27 targets for 143 yards, 46 yards after the catch, one touchdown, one interception, and an opponent passer rating of 67.4,” Farrar wrote. “In 2021, Hyde was more opportunistic and more vulnerable, which puts him a bit below where he was before.”

Hyde, a former fifth-round pick from the 2013 NFL Draft, is “one-half of the NFL’s best safety tandem (along with Jordan Poyer),” Farrar continued.

Getty/HeavyMicah Hyde #23 of the Buffalo Bills, and Jordan Poyer #21, are one the best safety duos in the NFL.

“Hyde played all over the field while Poyer played mostly free safety. Hyde had 278 snaps in the box, 185 in the slot, 628 at free safety, 51 at the line, and four at outside cornerback. And on all those snaps, he allowed 20 catches on 29 targets for 211 yards, 38 yards after the catch, four touchdowns, six interceptions, and an opponent passer rating of 89.9. Not quite the shutdown performer he was in 2020, but Hyde was also responsible for many more takeaways.”

Heading into Week 3, Poyer’s status is also unknown. While the veteran safety was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury, he did not participate on Thursday. On the FinSide host Brian Catanzaro tweeted, “Bills SS Jordan Poyer has started 81 of his last 82 games with the Bills. FS Micah Hyde has started 64 of his last 65. They never leave the field on gameday and Lezlie Frazier’s D relies heavily on their instincts in 2-high safety looks. If they both miss Sunday? Whoo boy.”

Cole Beasley gives Tom Brady another target as Bucs meet Packers Aaron Rodgers

Three days after signing veteran receiver Cole Beasley to their practice squad, the Tampa Bay Bucs have announced they’re elevating him for tonight’s home opener against the Green Bay Packers.

Beasley, 33, was moved up with veteran guard John Molchon, who has spent the majority of the past two seasons on Tampa Bay’s practice squad. Realistically, Beasley could provide a handful of quality reps for a unit that will be without Mike Evans (one-game suspension) and Chris Godwin (hamstring), and could be missing Julio Jones (knee).

Jones will be a game-time decision, coach Todd Bowles said Friday.

“[Beasley’s] quick, catches up to speed [really] fast, he understands the system,” Bowles added. “He’s played and he’s got a lot of reps under him, so if we needed him I think he’ll be ready.”

Green Bay (1-1) at Tampa Bay (2-0)

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, WOFL-35

Betting line: Buccaneers by 1½, according to FanDuel SportsBook.

Against the spread: Packers 1-1, Buccaneers 2-0.

Series record: Packers lead 33-23-1.

Last meeting: Bucs beat Packers 31-26, NFC championship game, Jan. 24, 2021, at Green Bay.

Last week: Packers beat Bears 27-10; Buccaneers defeated Saints 20-10.

Packers offense: Overall (11), rush (6), pass (20), scoring (23).

Packers defense: : Overall (10), rush (27), pass (4), scoring (7).

Bucs offense: : Overall (24), rush (13), pass (23), scoring (18).

Bucs offense: : Overall (5), rush (T9), pass (8), scoring (1).

Turnover differential: Packers minus 2; Bucs plus-4.

Packers player to watch: RB Aaron Jones. He’s coming off a huge performance in which he rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and caught 3 passes for 38 yards and another score. Jones struggled in the Packers’ two losses to Tampa Bay back in 2020. He rushed for 15 yards on 10 carries in the regular-season matchup and had a critical fumble in the NFC championship game while taking a hit that knocked him out for the rest of the day.

Bucs players to watch: QB Tom Brady. He hasn’t needed to be at his best the past two weeks in beating Dallas and New Orleans on the road, mainly because the Bucs defense has been so dominant. Through two games, he’s thrown for 402 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception after leading the NFL in completions, attempts, yards and TDs passing last season. The challenge this week is to get the Bucs offense rolling despite leading receiver Mike Evans serving a one-game suspension and the status of two other primary playmakers, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones, up in the air. Brady is 5-2 and has thrown for 15 TDs in 7 career starts against Green Bay, including playoffs.

Key matchup: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers vs. Bucs defense, which has a league-leading 10 sacks and allowed just 1 touchdown in two games. Tampa Bay forced 5 turnovers against the Saints last week and lead the league in fewest points allowed (13) and are tied for second in opponent first downs per game (15) and opponent third-down conversion rate (25%).

Key injuries: Packers OT David Bakhtiari hasn’t played yet this season and has appeared in only one game since tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament on Dec. 31, 2020. Godwin (hamstring) and Jones (knee), as well as Bucs LT Donovan Smith (elbow) didn’t play against the Saints. Their status for this week is uncertain.

Series notes: The Packers have won three of the past four regular-season matchups between the one-time NFC Central rivals.

Stats and stuff: The Packers and Bucs have the NFC’s two best regular-season records since 2020. The Packers have a 27-8 regular-season record, while the Bucs are 26-9. … This is only the fifth time that Brady and Rodgers have faced off as starting quarterbacks. Brady’s teams have won three of the four previous matchups, most notably Tampa Bay’s 31-26 NFC championship game victory at Green Bay during the Bucs’ 2020 Super Bowl-winning season. Rodgers’ lone victory over a Brady-led team was Green Bay’s 26-21 home triumph over New England in 2014. … The Packers allowed just one third-down conversion and 7 pass completions last week against the Bears. The 7 completions were the fewest they’d allowed in a game since 2005. … Rodgers threw 2 touchdown passes last week to increase his career total to 451, becoming the fifth NFL player to have at least 450. Brady leads the way with 626. … The Packers have committed only 5 penalties, the lowest total of any NFL team. … Green Bay’s Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon are the Packers’ first running-back tandem to each have 20-plus carries and 100-plus yards rushing in the first two games of a season since John Brockington and MacArthur Lane in 1973. … Packers OLB Preston Smith had 2 sacks and a team-high 7 tackles against the Bears. … This game will represent a homecoming for Packers rookie WR Christian Watson, a second-round pick from North Dakota State who went to Plant High School in Tampa.

Fantasy tip: Bucs RB Leonard Fournette. He’s fifth in the NFL in rushing with 192 yards, including 127 against the Cowboys. With Evans out, Brady figures to try to utilize him in the passing game more, too. … The Packers allowed Chicago’s David Montgomery to rush for 122 yards on only 15 carries. Dalvin Cook ran for 90 against them a week earlier.
