Bills' All-Pro Safety Day-to-Day

Buffalo Bills fans can breathe a little easier. After exiting in the fourth quarter of the team's 27-17 win over the Green Bay Packers with an elbow injury, safety Jordan Poyer appears to be alright. General manager Brandon Beane declared the All-Pro day-to-day at his Wednesday presser.

Poyer left the Sunday Night Football matchup in apparent pain and did not return. In close games, the safety typically plays every defensive snap so long as he's healthy. 

Poyer is a leader and a star for the Bills' top-ranked scoring defense. He currently leads the league with four interceptions despite only having played in five games this year. Should he be unavailable this week, the Bills will likely lean on backups Dean Marlowe and Jaquan Johnson in a crucial AFC East showdown with the New York Jets.

Poyer joined the Bills in 2017 following four relatively anonymous seasons with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles in which he totalled 10 starts. He quickly flourished in an increased role with the Bills; he has nabbed 22 interceptions over his 84 starts with the team. He earned his first All-Pro in 2021 and could be in line for another this year assuming he's consistently on the field for the remainder of the season.
