The 2022 NFL season has ended for Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Tommy Doyle.

Buffalo Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott announced that Doyle had a season-ending ACL injury that he sustained against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3.

McDermott said via video conference that Doyle had torn his cruciate ligament, however the team has yet to officially place Doyle on the injured reserve list, ending his year. Most likely, it will come in due time.

Doyle already had an injury in early 2022. He missed the first two weeks of the season due to foot injury.

Playing in a reserve role, Doyle filled in for Ryan Bates against Miami when he lost.

Doyle ended up playing a total of 37 offensive snaps during the competition. At the end of last season, Doyle began using the starting offense as an additional blocker on some packs for a while, but an injury prevented him from taking another step forward in his development in 2022.

Without Doyle, the Bills will likely have to consider adding deeper pieces to their offensive line. There are currently three offensive linemen in the Buffalo practice squad: rookie Alec Anderson, Ryan Van DeMark, and Greg Muntz.

Muntz was expelled from the Bills practice team before Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.
