Broncos - Bills: NFL Week 10 Monday Night Football injury report | Will Stefon Diggs play?
Only two players will miss the Buffalo Bills game tonight, while the Denver Broncos have no injured players on their playing roster.
As the Buffalo Bills (5-4) gear up to face the Denver Broncos (3-5) on Monday, November 13, at Highmark Stadium for Monday Night Football, they must contend with eight players on the injury report. In their last game on November 5, the Bills lost 24-18 to the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Broncos triumphed over the Kansas City Chiefs 24-9 in their last outing.
Two key players in the Bills’ secondary, Christian Benford and Micah Hyde, have been ruled out for the upcoming game. Benford, the Bills’ starting number-one corner, suffered a hamstring injury during practice before their game against the Bengals. He did not practice all week and could not complete the game, and the long-term implications of his injury remain uncertain. The Bills face defensive challenges, with Travis White on injured reserve and KY Eilms also sidelined.
Hyde, a crucial part of the Bills’ defense, will miss Monday’s game due to a neck stinger. While his absence is a significant loss, it may be a prudent decision considering his history with cervical fusion surgery. The team prioritizes his long-term well-being, which may have influenced the decision to sit him out for this game.
Meanwhile, the Broncos’ offensive guard Ben Powers has been grappling with an ankle issue, which is the focus of the team’s injury report. The good news is that Powers has fully participated in practice despite the injury.
What is Stefon Diggs’s injury status?
Buffalo Bills fans can finally rest after news that one of their top players, Stefon Diggs, would be fit to play in Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos. Diggs, the Bills’ leading receiver, was listed as a limited participant on Friday’s injury report after experiencing back pain during practice.
The team’s medical staff monitored Diggs closely over the weekend, and he continued to practice on Saturday, albeit with limited capacity. However, he was confident he could take the field on Monday night, which would significantly boost the Bills’ offense.
Given his importance to the team’s success this season, Diggs’ injury status had caused some initial concern among fans. But his reassuring comments to reporters, combined with the Bills’ decision not to give him an injury designation, should put those concerns to rest. Bills have depended offensively heavily on Diggs this season, with the wide receiver leading the team in both receptions and receiving yards.
