Tre’Davious White, a key member of the Buffalo Bills‘ defense, was lost last week during the team’s victory over the Miami Dolphins. After losing linebacker Matt Milano to what look to be several lower body injuries and defensive tackle DaQuan Jones to a torn pectoral muscle on Saturday, the defensive injuries continued on Sunday.

Not to mention the three defensive players, including starting defensive end Greg Rousseau (foot) and starting cornerback Christian Benford (shoulder), who were sidelined for Sunday’s 25-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

“It was like midway through the first, second quarter, you kind of look out there and some of the guys normally out there kind of gone. Milano, [Jones],” safety Jordan Poyer said after the game. “For the guys that stepped in [like linebacker Tyrel Dodson], I thought played extremely well, stepping in the role of Matt.”

The Bills defense has been among the best in the league, stopping the Dolphins’ top offense to only 20 points last week. The question now is what will happen the rest of the season. The depth of the Bills (3-2) will now be seriously tested.

“It’s tough to see guys get hurt, but flip side, I try to think about it, we do have depth, we do have a lot of guys that can play football at a very high level,” wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. “So, when you go into that deep, the depth that we have, the deep edge that we do have, guys need to play well, guys need to step up and it’s still a standard.”
