3. Edmunds and Milan leave early
Last season, Matt Milano started 15 games and Tremaine Edmunds started all 16, as they both remained extremely healthy. In Week 1 this season against the Jets, both suffered injuries.
Late in the first half, Milan suffered a lower leg injury and was declared a player until the beginning of the second half. Milan has a history of injuries to the lower leg. I hope this is not serious. Coach McDermott has no backpacker status update.
At the beginning of the second half, Tremen Edmunds came out of the game with a shoulder injury. After a thorough examination by the team̵
He returned to the sidelines in the fourth quarter to watch the rest of the game, but never returned. There was no update on his condition.
Filling for Milan and Edmunds were AJ Klein and Tyrel Dodson. Klein finished with a five-point lead for the team as Dodson posted his first sack of his career.
“I was very proud of the way the younger boys intervened and did a good job,” McDermott said. “From Tyrell Dodson to AJ Klein and Tyler Matakevich. And this is the next person and this is the resilience of the leveling crew and the resilience of our defense and our team.”
Buffalo’s defense has never been without one of their two solid starting defenders, who are dynamic in coverage. Coach McDermott understands that such a possibility exists next week, depending on what the medical examination of their injuries reveals.
“These guys are good players for us,” he told Edmunds and Milan. “They did a good job doing some good things (Sunday) and so there will be trouble like there was (Sunday), whether it’s injuries or a change in momentum. I think we learned that you have to keep going and I thought our team did that, so we’ll see what happens. This week we hope and pray to return them. If we don’t know, this will be the next person. “
