Isaiah McKenzie receives high praise from Buffalo Bills HC Sean McDermott: 'I'm just really proud of him'
Isaiah McKenzie had 1 catch for 12 yards on Sunday in the Buffalo Bills’ 45-17 win over the New York Jets, and the former Georgia wide receiver also contributed a punt return of 26 yards.
McKenzie also ran for a touchdown on 2 carries that went for 17 yards as he continues to be a Swiss Army Knife-like player for the Bills. Coach Sean McDermott, though, said there’s more to McKenzie beyond the box score.
McKenzie is in his fourth season with the Bills after he started his NFL career with the Denver Broncos.
“You look at how far he has come as a person,” McDermott said. “He’s always been a good person, but how far he’s come in his maturity and how he’s developed off the field, and then how he’s developed on the field. I’m just extremely proud of him, I really am. You love when you see a person like that have success. He’s part of the reason why we are who we are. He hasn’t come from much, but he’s offered so much to our football team.”
Some very high praise from Sean McDermott about the impact Isaiah McKenzie makes every week. @MattParrino asking the question 👍 #BillsMafia @WKBW pic.twitter.com/XztOOfEx0R
