The Bills’ injury list is extensive from Sunday’s game against the Miami.

Offensive lineman Tommy Doyle, who had to replace Ryan Bates at right guard after 58 snaps, tore his anterior cruciate ligament, coach Sean McDermott announced. Doyle is done for the season.

Doyle played 37 snaps on offense and four on special teams in Miami in his first action of the season. He appeared in 11 games last season.

Bates is in concussion protocol, McDermott said.

Receiver Jake Kumerow has a high-ankle sprain that likely will keep him out a few weeks. He had two catches for 14 yards Sunday, giving him four receptions for 64 yards this season.

Cornerback Christian Benford has a fractured hand and will undergo surgery. He played 19 defensive snaps and seven on special teams against Miami.

  1. Benford is a steal and that secondary did all it could against a good passing attack. Deepest team in the league and it’s gonna be tested – the sheer number of injuries is staggering. Another big one this week on the road. 3-1 with that schedule is a first quarter of the season. That early bye is looking very beneficial now where I originally wanted it later to rest up

  2. We’ll, I guess if there is a good time to face the injury gods, it’s early in the season.
    Beane will dig up some gems out there to replace those who can’t play…
    It’s going to be tough, but I like the team…

  3. Injuries suck, and I hate to see guys go down. But the Ravens need to take advantage of this. The Bills are definitely top tier and we need this win at home.
