The Buffalo Bills have been lucky up to this point when it comes to injuries.
The team entered Week Four against the Atlanta Falcons as the healthiest team in the NFL, in fact. It exited Mercedes-Benz Stadium with some issues, though.
Among those is linebacker Ramon Humber, who according to a report Monday from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport "is believed to have broken his hand" and "will miss time." At his Monday news conference, coach Sean McDermott confirmed that Humber will undergo surgery.
Humber was hurt in the first half of Sunday's 23-17 victory over Atlanta, and ended up playing just 29 defensive snaps. The Bills announced it as a thumb injury. On the season, the ninth-year veteran has 37 tackles and one pass defensed. In addition to Humber, the Bills also lost wide receiver Jordan Matthews (thumb), safety Colt Anderson (arm) and cornerback E.J. Gaines (groin) during their 23-17 win.
McDermott said Matthews and Anderson will need surgery and Gaines will be day-to-day with a groin injury.
