Jet Ski Mishap Sidelines Bills’ Star Hines for Season 😵🌊🏈
TL;DR: Nyheim Hines, the Bills’ running back, gets a surprise knee injury, not from the field but from a rogue jet ski! Expected to miss the entire season. Return in 2024? 🤷♂️

While many of us dream of jet skiing during the hot summer months, it’s safe to say Nyheim Hines probably wishes he’d skipped it this year. The 26-year-old Bills’ player got a knee full of bad luck, and no, it wasn’t from a powerful tackle or a misstep on the field. It was from a jet ski. Yes, you read that right. A. Jet. Ski. 😲
So, if you were planning a friendly water sports outing soon, maybe reconsider? But, hey, we’re not advising or anything.
Picture this: Hines was just chilling on a stationary jet ski – probably pondering on how to master the next season – when BAM! Another jet ski thought it would be a good idea to introduce itself to his left knee. Not the best introduction, if you ask us. 🛵💥
The good news? He didn’t sustain any life-threatening injuries. Phew! 😅 But with a likely season-ending injury to his left ACL, Hines’ plans to hit the ground running (quite literally) for the 2023 season are sadly now on hold. When asked about any silver lining, sources say the expectation and hope are for Hines to return in 2024. So, fans, dry those tears! Or at least try.
What’s baffling many (including us) is where and when this jet ski debacle even occurred. The incident details are more secretive than grandma’s cookie recipe. 🍪🤫
Now, for a trip down memory lane: Hines was gearing up for the season as the primary kick and punt returner, flexing his muscles to compete for more running opportunities alongside Damien Harris and Latavius Murray. Both were freshly onboarded this off-season. Remember when the Bills swapped Hines for Zack Moss and a fifth-round pick with the Colts? Good times, good times.
However, Hines’ 2022 scoreboard wasn’t exactly crowded, with only 13 touches on offense. So, the question arises: was 2023 going to be his year of redemption, his breakout season? Well, I guess we’ll never know. Or will we? 🧐
His absence this season raises another query. With him sidelined, who will step up and take charge for the Bills? Who’s going to fill the shoes… or rather, the cleats? 🏈👟
Thought Provoker: In a world where injuries can come from anywhere, even unexpected places like water sports, should professional athletes be more cautious off the field? And Bills fans, who are you placing your bets on to step up this season? 🤔
