Bills urged to sign ex-Bears CB after spate of injuries

The Buffalo Bills’ victory over the New York Jets left them even more depleted in the secondary after losing Tre’Davious White to a season-ending torn Achilles and putting second-year cornerback Kaiir Elam on injured reserve.

Even though the Bills prevailed 32–6 on November 19, they suffered severe injuries, losing two cornerbacks and two safeties, including safety Taylor Rapp, who had to be rushed off the field in an ambulance due to a terrifying injury.

According to Bleacher Report, the Bills may approach former Chicago Bears cornerback Bryce Callahan in free agency this week in an attempt to add some help.

            Bills Face Uncertain Week

Following Sunday’s game, Maddy Glab of reported that the Bills received conflicting updates regarding injuries.

On X, the former Twitter, Glab said, “Sean McDermott says Taylor Rapp’s tests have come back negative & has a chance to play on Sunday.” “Dane Jackson and Taron Johnson are undergoing concussion protocol.” Cam Lewis (shoulder) and Micah Hyde (stinger) are day-to-day This week, Dawson Knox is able to make a comeback. #Bills

The 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles are playing next week, and it’s unclear who will be able to return. Bleacher Report proposed the Bills hire Callahan to provide depth.

The research stated that the Bills must improve their secondary health if they hope to maintain their winning momentum in the upcoming weeks. In addition to the illnesses the team has faced this season, Taron Johnson and Dane Jackson both left Sunday’s game with injuries. Experienced slot corner Bryce Callahan had 11 starts and three interceptions in the previous campaign.



The Bills may look to veteran Josh Norman for more immediate assistance, even though Callahan may help the injury-plagued secondary gain more depth. Following White’s injury, the Bills added Norman to their practice squad; he had previously played for Buffalo in 2020. This is Norman’s second tenure with the team. He has split action between special teams and defense in three games, recording four tackles overall.

Breakout Game for New Bills Cornerback

Rasul Douglas, a former cornerback for the Green Bay Packers, is one rookie in the secondary who the Bills have already looked to. Against the Jets, the trade-deadline addition had a career-best performance, forcing a fumble, making two interceptions, and defending three passes.

According to head coach Sean McDermott, “he’s a smart football player,” as reported by the Buffalo News. He finds the game to be quite logical. He arrived on Wednesday of a short week, I guess, didn’t practice, and then played, so there’s a reason why he was able to do what he did. Well, that’s challenging. Make the effort to learn a defensive strategy from the ground up. Then, he began to, I believe, really settle into a routine of how he could utilize the defense to his advantage. After you have a sense of what’s necessary and expected of you, you can say, “Okay, I can do some things.”
