On Friday, the Bills officially ruled out Knox for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars. He’s still recovering from a broken bone in his hand that he suffered in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans.
With Knox out for at least one more game, the Bills will need Tommy Sweeney to step up at tight end.

As for Knox, it’s unclear when he’ll return to the Bills’ starting lineup. This hand injury isn’t supposed to be a long-term issue, which is why he wasn’t placed on injured reserve.
Two weeks ago, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo said that he believes Knox will return on Nov. 14 for the Bills’ showdown with the Jets. It’s still possible that Knox will return on that date.
Before he went down with a broken hand, Knox was becoming a star for the Bills. He already has 21 receptions for 286 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Even with Knox out of the lineup this Sunday, the Bills are heavy favorites against the Jaguars. Kickoff for this game is at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
