October 2, 2017

After receiving the news on Jordan Matthews earlier Monday morning, the Buffalo Bills may be dealt another significant blow on the injury front.

According to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, linebacker Ramon Humber is expected to miss some time after breaking his hand on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Humber leads the Bills in tackles (37) through the first four games of the season. The nine-year veteran is in his second season with the Bills, but first season as a starter after winning a starting role during training camp.

With Humber sidelined for an uncertain amount of time, Buffalo will rely on rookie linebacker Matt Milano to fill in for the veteran linebacker. Milano registered four tackles in relief of Humber in Sunday's win in Atlanta.

We expect to hear more from head coach Sean McDermott this afternoon when he addresses the media at 1 p.m.
