Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde has been declared out of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with a groin injury suffered in the first quarter.
Hyde was able to walk off the field after the injury, but appeared to be in some pain. He was examined in the medical tent and then took a seat on the bench, slamming his helmet in frustration. He then wrapped his head in towel. He later was seen standing on the sideline.
As Hyde left the field, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to came over and check on his former teammate.
“It is a big deal anytime you lose a Pro Bowler, a guy that seems to knows everything about this defense," Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White said. "He played here for a long time. If we have him on the field I feel like we have the upper hand.”
Hyde was on the other side of the field as Rodgers completed a 43-yard pass to running back Ty Montgomery.
"To come back to Green Bay and not be able to contribute ... It's an unfortunate situation for Micah," coach Sean McDermott said. "I know he wanted to be out there. The guys that stepped in did their jobs."
