Here are the latest happenings from around the AFC East for Buffalo Bills fans to know involving the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets:

Former Bills WR cut in Miami

Defensive ends go down for season

In a span of a few days, the Jets lost a couple of pass rushers. Among them was Carl Lawson, the team's top free-agent signee this offseason. Per Jets Wire, Lawson ruptured his Achilles. His year is done. In an even crazier circumstance, a rare blood disorder will end defensive end Vinny Curry's season as well.

LB to miss several weeks

The beats didn't stop there for the Jets. Also in the last week, starting linebacker Jarrad Davis suffered an ankle injury. He'll be back by Week 6, per Jets Wire.

Kroft could be impact-maker

Former Bills tight end Tyler Kroft signed with the Jets this offseason. He might also become their starting tight end. After underwhelming with the Bills, Kroft's preseason has gone well which has included a two-touchdown game just last week. When Buffalo faces New York, Kroft might have a shot at some revenge.

New England Patriots

Two injured at practice Wednesday

No updates just yet, but to start, the Patriots lost two key players due to injury on Wednesday. During practice, wide receiver Nelson Agholor and offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn were hurt and left practice, per Patriots Wire. We'll update those injuries at a later date when information becomes available.

Patriots trade

A rare NFL trade: Sony Michel is no longer with the Patriots. New England traded him this week to the Los Angeles Rams. The former first-round pick only fetched the Pats a couple of late-round picks that might turn into a fourth rounder.

Cam Newton frustrations?

The Bills had their own COVID-19 problems this week and have several players on a five-day reentry window. Cam Newton is on the same list with the Pats. Over the weekend, the Patriots QB attended a social event and made sure to follow protocols and get tested before and after. However, he did so via private company and not with one approved by the NFL so he had to sit down a few days. Also involved in that, via Patriots Wire, its been reported the Pats are "frustrated" with him currently. Rookie first-round pick Mac Jones is taking first-team reps with Newton sidelined. Certainly something to now monitor.
