Rodger Saffold to miss start of Buffalo Bills camp due to injury
Rodger Saffold will be on the non-football injury list for the start of Buffalo Bills camp, head coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Sunday.
Saffold injured “some ribs” in a car accident in the “last couple of weeks,” McDermott said in a press conference, per ProFootballTalk.
A former Indiana offensive lineman, Saffold has been in the NFL since 2010 when he was drafted No. 33 in the second round by the then-St. Louis Rams. The Pro Football Writers Association named Saffold to its All-Rookie Team for the 2010 season.
In 2017, with the Rams, Saffold earned second-team All-Pro recognition. He played for the Tennessee Titans from 2018-to-2021, earning a Pro Bowl selection last season.
In March, Saffold was released by the Titans and signed a 1-year deal with Buffalo. He has played in 160 NFL games, starting all but 3.
Saffold signed with the Bills expecting to be a starting guard.
