Bills FS Byrd out indefinitely with groin injury

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO (AP) — Buffalo Bills starting safety Jairus Byrd is out indefinitely and could miss the season opener after having surgery to repair a groin injury.

Coach Chan Gailey made the announcement after the Bills arrived in Toronto on Wednesday, a day before they face Indianapolis in a preseason game. Gailey said it's unclear whether Byrd will be ready to play Sept. 12 when Buffalo opens the season against Miami.

Gailey said the injury is related to the groin injury that ended Byrd's season last year. He said Byrd's groin had been bothering him during training camp, and it grew worse after practice Monday night.

Byrd is coming off a solid rookie season, which he finished tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions despite playing just 14 games.
