Byrd hasnít been in the lineup at all for the Bills this year because of his own foot problem and, unlike Holmes, Byrd wonít be taking a step on the field until heís certain that heís 100 percent.

Plantar Fasciitis.
Top Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd battling plantar fasciitis - ESPN

Read the comments on the ESPN article from Bills fans:

John Zendano
"plantar fasciitis= Flat Feet ---- Did not know that Flat Feet would be such an issue. I thought that players learn how to play with pain? Well if I was guaranteed millions to wait for my flat feet to recover I would relax."

Cody White
"It seems odd that suddenly after he signs his franchise tender that he develops a foot issue. I really hope he's not trying to burn us here."....

Among other comments (I'm starting to feel nauseous)

Not just flat feet

Plantar fasciitis is a common painful disorder affecting the heel and underside of the foot. It is a disorder of the insertion site of ligament on the bone and is characterized by scarring, inflammation, or structural breakdown of the foot's plantar fascia. It is often caused by overuse injury of the plantar fascia, increases in exercise, weight or age. Though plantar fasciitis was originally thought to be an inflammatory process, newer studies have demonstrated structural changes more consistent with a degenerative process. As a result of this new observation, many in the academic community have stated the condition should be renamed plantar fasciosis.[1]

Plantar fasciitis is the most common injury of the plantar fascia[2] and is the most common cause of heel pain.[3][4] Approximately 10% of people have plantar fasciitis at some point during their lifetime.[5][6] It is commonly associated with long periods of standing and is much more prevalent in individuals with excessive inward rolling of the foot, which is seen with flat feet.

Byrd wasn't having the best performances, let's see who steps up in his absence... Bush has played well and now gets his chance to start
Yeah believe it or not, I think we might be better with him hurt. After all, he did not learn much with us due to back surgery. And he probably would have clicked later on in the season. Maybe now we get back to basics with our defense and tackle and force stops again.

Our offense though is under more pressure to not make mistakes now.

Byrd's replacement is no slouch.

Safety Rafael Bush will jump in the starting lineup to replace Byrd and is more than familiar with the Saints defense. Bush played a ton last season in the team's three-safety scheme and received about half the defensive snaps in three of the first four games this year.

The Saints played hardball with Atlanta to regain the services of Bush. New Orleans matched the Falcons' restricted free agent offer for Bush to maintain its ability to use three safeties in defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's defense. The Saints would be in a much bigger world of hurt if Bush left for Atlanta.

Could it be Byrd's lack of production influenced Payton?
I'm not going to pretend I know anything about meniscus injuries but they referred to this one as a "bucket handle tear." I did a google search and I still don't know much more than before but I did learn that the bucket handle tear is bad for two reasons, one it's a very big tear on the meniscus and two, often times there's inadequate blood flow for the tendon to heal properly.

I've read rehab times vary from 6 weeks to 6 months depending on the person and the damage.

Re: Jarius Byrd to IR

So, we have to pay Byrd even though he may never play another game for us? Wow! Then what insurance do teams have that players won't fake an injury? Apparently, some injuries are only diagnose-able by reporting of symptoms.

That's an age old problem. Teams have doctors to try to diagnose problems but you're right, some problems like lower back pain, whiplash and foot pain, many times, don't show signs of damage.

The Portland Trailblazers said privately for years that Bill Walton was faking his foot injuries.
