Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott issues worrying injury updates on 25-year-old talent ahead of the Eagles clash…

Buffalo Bills safety Taylor Rapp, initially feared to have suffered a serious neck injury and loaded into an ambulance during Sunday’s game, now stands a chance to participate in the upcoming match against the Philadelphia Eagles, as confirmed by Coach Sean McDermott. On Monday, McDermott shared that all medical evaluations have returned negative results, indicating a more optimistic outlook for Rapp’s condition.

The injury occurred during Buffalo’s 32-6 victory over the New York Jets when Rapp, along with defensive back Taron Johnson, collided with Jets running back Breece Hall in the second quarter. While Johnson went down immediately, Rapp stumbled back before collapsing to his knees. Despite initial concerns and being placed on an immobilizing board, Rapp displayed movement in his hands while being loaded into the ambulance on the field. Fortunately, he did not require hospitalization and remained at the stadium throughout the game before being sent home.

In addition to Rapp’s potential return, McDermott provided updates on other injured players. Both Johnson and Dane Jackson are in the NFL’s concussion protocol, while starting safety Micah Hyde and backup Cam Lewis are listed as day-to-day with respective injuries (stinger and shoulder). The activation of tight end Dawson Knox from injured reserve, however, seems unlikely in the immediate future, as McDermott all but ruled out his return during the first eligible week since a wrist injury last month.

The Bills, with a current record of 6-5, are set to face the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday before heading into their bye week.
