The Buffalo Bills are in a difficult place. They have the quality contributors to compete, but youth at skill positions could hold them back. If there is one reason for excitement, it's the fact that Buffalo's defense has legitimate star power.

Unfortunately, two-time Pro Bowl free safety Jairus Byrd is now facing a foot injury, per Tim Graham of The Buffalo News.
