Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl safety Micah Hyde leaves game against Green Bay Packers with groin injury

The Bills are down a safety.

Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl safety Micah Hyde has left the game against the Green Bay Packers with a groin injury. He has been replaced by long-time vet Rafael Bush.

Hyde left the game against his former team in the first quarter, spending a fair amount of time on the ground before limping off. He had his helmet in his hand, but is questionable to return after visiting the blue medical tent. He threw his helmet and is wearing a towel during the most recent Bills defensive drive.

Buffalo is already down one member of the secondary, as cornerback Phillip Gaines is inactive with an elbow injury. (In addition, you may have heard that Vontae Davis retired earlier this year.)

Hyde adds versatility to the defensive backfield, as he has the skills to move down and cover as a cornerback or play along the back in the safety role.

Hyde has played virtually every snap for the Bills in his two seasons with the team, leaving the playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a concussion.
