Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer played in Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but getting to Arrowhead Stadium was no easy feat for the All-Pro defensive back.
Poyer was dealing with a collapsed lung before the game against the Chiefs, ESPN reported, though he was listed on the Bills’ injury report with a rib issue.

Doctors reportedly refused to clear Poyer to fly with the team to Kansas City because of the change of air pressure when flying.
Instead, the Bills arranged for Poyer and his family to go from Buffalo to Kansas City in a van. Poyer and his family traveled 973 miles in about 15 hours to get to the game.

“This is the next one, so it’s good that we got [the win] going into the bye week,” he said after the game. “Gotta get everybody healthy again and come back home against … the Packers.”
Despite the reported lung issue, Poyer played 100% of the defensive snaps. He recorded four tackles in the 24-20 victory. He missed last week’s game with the injury issue.
Poyer is leading the NFL with four interceptions this season. Additionally, he has 16 combined tackles and one tackle for a loss this season along with six passes defended.
