Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft suffered a broken right foot Monday on the first day of offseason training activities and will require surgery.

Head coach Sean McDermott confirmed the injury Tuesday. The expected recovery time is 3-4 months and Kroft could miss the start of the regular season, NFL Media reported.

Kroft, 26, was expected to start for Buffalo this season after signing a three-year, $18.75 million contract in March.

Kroft’s 2018 campaign ended with a similar injury. He was placed on injured reserve in November after having surgery to repair his fractured right foot.

A third-round pick of the Bengals in 2015, Kroft played in 51 games over four seasons with the Bengals and caught 67 passes for 661 yards and eight touchdowns.
