Watch Now:

Hyde (back) was a limited participant at practice Thursday ahead of Monday night's Week 1 game at the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The issue with his back apparently just cropped up within the last few days, but it's evidently not severe enough to keep Hyde off the field entirely. It's possible Buffalo is just playing things safe with the veteran Pro Bowler, who missed 15 full regular-season games and two postseason contests in 2022 due to a neck issue. However, if the back injury proves severe enough to keep him out Week 1, it could clear a path for Damar Hamlin to start.
