Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox is heading to injured reserve per Underdog NFL:

Knox has played all 7 games for the Bills this season, racking up below-par 15 receptions for 102 yards. The emergence of first-round rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid has probably contributed to Knox’s lack of production, with Kincaid having 25 receptions for 193 yards – 66% more receptions and almost double the amount of yards.
This is just a year removed from the Buffalo Bills reaching an agreement to extend Knox to a 4 year, $53.6 million dollar contract, and he is currently the 9th highest-paid tight end in pro football. Despite having produced back-to-back 500 + yard seasons, it looks like this feat is unlikely to be replicated, at least for the 2023 NFL season.
However, the Buffalo Bills can rejoice in the emergence and early success of Dalton Kincaid, who is rapidly becoming one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets behind All-pro wide receiver Stefon Diggs. We will have to wait and see the full effects of this injury on what has already been an inconsistent, hot-and-cold Buffalo offense that lacks a true #2 receiver behind Diggs and who performed miserably against New England last Sunday.
Tonight, they go up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a short week on Thursday Night Football, who are coming off of a loss at home against the Atlanta Falcons.
