02:47 PM ET 09.02 | It has been a wild offseason for Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd and the latest development could prove to be another blow to the team's defensive backfield. According to recent reports, Byrd has been diagnosed with plantar faciitis that could keep him out of action if the injury is proven to be serious enough. The Bills would prefer to keep Byrd on the field as much as possible and the star safety would like to be healthy for his contract year, but you never know if a player will be the same player he was prior to the injury or just how much the injury could affect his playing time moving forward.

Sucks for him, really. But not that much.

He's going to get paid next year when he becomes a free agent, regardless. And no way he stays in upper New York.

My wife has been dealing with it for months--and it can take time to heal.
This could go on for a while.
