Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (hand) is expected to return in about three weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

There hasn't been any clear recovery timetable given up until now, but the thought had been that it would be around this long for a recovery given that Knox isn't expected to go on injured reserve. Hopefully Knox is back in two or three games and continue his breakout campaign.

Dawson Knox had hand surgery.

The Bills are on a bye week, but Knox is set to miss time with his hand injury—we'll see if there's a more definite timeline soon. It's a tough break for Knox, who was off to an outstanding start this season, with 21 receptions for 286 yards and five touchdowns through six games. Hopefully he's back for Buffalo soon.

Dawson Knox broke a bone in his hand, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

The hope is that Knox won't miss much time, and the Bills entering their bye week should help make that possible. Buffalo's tight end actually threw a successful two-point conversion with the broken hand last night, so we'd bet he'll be saying he can play when the Bills are back in Week 8. If not, Tommy Sweeney will take over as the No. 1 tight end, but it might primarily lead to more snaps for Gabriel Davis.

Dawson Knox (hand) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight.

Knox went to the locker room a little bit ago, and X-rays presumably didn't turn out well. Knox actually threw a two-point conversion to Josh Allen on a "Philly Special" type of play, but he was then checked out on the bench and his night is done. Before leaving the Week 6 Monday night matchup with the Titans, Knox had three receptions for 25 yards along with the two-point conversion pass. Hopefully Knox, who has emerged as a major contributor to the Buffalo offense this season, doesn't miss much time with this.

Dawson Knox (calf) is officially active for Week 9.

While Knox was limited in practice all week, he's ready to return to the lineup the same week he was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Knox has upside, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups in his first game back.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (calf) is officially questionable for Week 9.

Knox is off the COVID-19 list, but his calf isn't quite at 100% yet. Ideally, you won't be relying on the second-year tight end in your fantasy lineup this week anyway, but his status will be known by an hour and a half before kickoff on Sunday.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

The Bills activated Dawson Knox from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Knox has gotten rid of the virus and can now rejoin his teammates ahead of this Sunday's Week 9 game against the Seahawks, assuming he's also healed up from the calf injury that had previously forced him to miss time.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

The Bills placed Dawson Knox on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Bills even added that Knox did indeed test positive for the coronavirus. Now, with tight ends Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney (PUP list), and Nate Becker (practice squad) identified as close contacts, they will all also be out for tomorrow's game against the Jets and will be placed on the COVID-19 list. Thankfully, Knox being out of practice due to his calf injury might have helped prevent the spread of the virus to more players on the team.

Dawson Knox (calf) has officially been ruled out for Sunday.

The Bills will be without Knox for their Week 7 matchup with the Jets, and the second-year tight end remains week-to-week with his calf injury.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (calf) has officially been ruled out for Monday night.

The second-year tight end is week-to-week while dealing with his calf issue.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (calf) is questionable to return for the Bills.

We're into the fourth quarter, so Knox is working against the clock to return to tonight's game against the Titans. Buffalo is already down John Brown (knee) tonight.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Hopefully Knox is feeling better soon, as it's not a great sign that he's being ruled out already. Knox must clear concussion protocol before he can return to the field.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

Dawson Knox (concussion) is out for the rest of today's game.

Knox had a 38-yard reception on his lone catch of the afternoon before leaving against the Dolphins. Knox is now in the concussion protocol and must get cleared before he can return to the field.

Dawson Knox | Bills TE

The Bills have selected Ole Miss tight end Dawson Knox with the No. 96 pick (third round) in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Knox suddenly received some surprising early-round buzz during the pre-draft process despite limited production and no touchdowns during his time at Mississippi. But he did have to contend with star receivers A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf, and DeMarkus Lodge for targets, and he was able to average 18.9 yards per reception (on just 15 receptions) in his final season as a junior. The athletic ability of Knox gives him dynasty-league upside, but it’d be a surprise if he’s a reliable fantasy contributor in 2019.
