Jordan Poyer is a warrior

The former Beav is making headlines for his toughness

NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Buffalo Bills star safety, Jordan Poyer, suffered a rib injury against the Ravens in week 4. It occurred during his 2nd interception of the game. The former Oregon State star is a team captain for the Super Bowl favorite Bills and was forced to miss week 5 due to the injury. He still hasn’t been cleared to fly as doctors explained he had a collapsed lung or a ‘resolving pneumothorax’. Despite not being cleared to fly he was given the okay to play; so he made the 15 hour drive from NY to Arrowhead Stadium to help his team defeat Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Poyer played every single defensive snap on Sunday.

The drive crosses five states and is about 1,000 miles long. Not only did he have to drive to Kansas City; he’s making the long trek back after the game. Thankfully the Bills have their ‘bye’ week, so Poyer can rest up. They also play their next game at home, so hopefully Poyer is cleared to fly before their next away game in a couple weeks.
