Bills vs. Dolphins: Miami wide receiver Will Fuller will miss game due to personal reasons

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller will not make his debut this Sunday in the Week 2 contest against the Buffalo Bills. Dolphins head coach Mike Flores announced Friday afternoon that Fuller will miss the game due to unspecified personal reasons. In fact, Flores isn’t sure if or when he will return.

“He has my support. Things happen,” Flores said. “When they happen, they’re not part of normal every day, it’s a surprise from that standpoint. He’s dealing with it. We’ll support him.”

He practiced on Wednesday before being absent from practice on Thursday.

Fuller was out for the team’s Week 1 game serving the final game of a suspension. Last November, he was suspended six games for violating the NFL’s policy on Performance-Enhancing Drugs. He claims it was due to a non-approved prescription he was taking.

The Bills haven’t faced Fuller since 2018 when he was on the Houston Texans, but his blistering start to 2020 turned heads before the suspension. Healthy for the first time in his career, he caught 52 passes for 879 yards and 8 touchdowns in 11 games. This is certainly good news for Levi Wallace and the Bills’ secondary, especially with Micah Hyde nursing an injury.
