Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox appears to be in good sprints despite a big road bump in his breakout 2021campaign.
Knox failed to add to his five touchdowns this season against the Tennessee Titans on Monday during his team’s tough 34-31 loss. But that wasn’t the worst of the updates surrounding him.
After Knox threw a pass to quarterback Josh Allen on a two-point conversion attempt in the second half, it was announced he was questionable to return to the game.
Knox had a hand injury. We now know via Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott it could be a bit extensive as well, as the tight end has a broken bone.
But as referenced, Knox is going to try and take things in stride.
After the news was confirmed by his coach on Tuesday, Knox took to his social media account on Twitter. He thanked Bills fans for the well wishes and gave off a positive impression:
Thank y’all for all the prayers! Will be back very soon

Knox certainly was very impressive in grinding through his injury to throw that pass to Allen. After the game, the QB recalled that Knox said “I got it” to him when Allen tried to tell the coaching staff about the injury.
Even so, it could be a bit of time on the sideline for Knox.
The good news is that the Bills (4-2) do head into their bye week, so at least initially, Knox’s broken right hand will have a bit of time to heal up.
However, when McDermott updated the injury on Tuesday, he did not give any sort of timetable for Knox’s return.
Without the No. 1, it’ll be Tommy Sweeney’s opportunity to shine. Sweeney did at least build some momentum against the Titans himself, scoring his first-career touchdown.
Bills Wire will provide updates on Knox as they become available.
