Bills’ Dawson Knox To Miss Time

Bills tight end Dawson Knox will miss multiple weeks due to a broken hand (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport). The Bills may opt to place Knox on short-term IR, allowing him to return after three missed games. 

Knox, somehow, completed a 2-point conversion pass with the broken hand against the Titans. That fact wasn’t lost on the play’s receiver — quarterback Josh Allen.

Huge shoutout to Dawson,” Allen said (via ESPN.com). “I was trying to call the play off — I was shaking my hands at [offensive coordinator Brian Daboll] like, ‘Don’t call it, we can’t do it.’ And [Knox] looked at me and said, ‘I got it. I’ll get it to ya.’ So, to put your body on the line like that and grit through it, that was a big-time play and that’s awesome when a teammate is willing to do that, and that’s why we love him.”

Knox is in the midst of a career year with 21 catches for 286 yards and five scores through six games. Fortunately for the Bills, they have a Week 7 bye plus a cushy stretch in Weeks 8-10. If Knox can’t go against the Dolphins, Jaguars, or even the Jets, it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
