Bills HC Sean McDermott announced Tuesday that TE Tyler Kroft will have surgery to repair a broken foot.
Kroft suffered the injury on the first day of OTA’s Monday. He signed with the Bills in free agency this March on a three-year, $18.75 million deal.
Last year, Kroft broke the same foot as a member of the Bengals.
Per Ian Rapoport, the timeframe for recovery is three to four months, which makes Kroft a candidate to start the season on the PUP list.
Kroft, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. He finished the final year of his four-year, $2,971,276 rookie contract and was entering the open market for the first time in his NFL career.
Kroft landed on the Bengals’ injured reserve in November due to a foot injury but had an impressive 2017 season when he scored seven touchdowns.
In 2018, Kroft appeared in five games and caught four passes for 36 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
