  • Bills' Christian Benford: Restored to active roster

    The Bills activated Benford (oblique) from IR on Friday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

    Benford has been sidelined on IR since suffering an oblique strain during the Week 12 win over Detroit. The rookie cornerback was then designated to return to practice Dec. 29, and he should now be available to play heading into the regular-season finale versus New England. Benford has recorded 24 tackles and five passes defended, including one interception, across nine games this season, and he'll likely slot back into a primary reserve role alongside cornerbacks Taron Johnson and Kaiir Elam.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Returning to practice

    The Bills announced Thursday that Benford (oblique) has been designated for a return to practice from IR.

    Benford landed on IR after suffering an oblique injury Thanksgiving versus the Lions, but he's now eligible to retake the field as early as Monday's game against Cincinnati. The rookie sixth-round pick has a 21-day practice window where he can be evaluated without counting against the active roster.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Placed on IR

    Buffalo moved Benford (oblique) to injured reserve Saturday.

    Benford suffered an oblique injury Thanksgiving against the Lions and was initially said to be week-to-week. Now that he's been placed on IR, the cornerback will miss at least four games. Prior to the injury, Benford had logged at least 23 defensive snaps in all but one of the contests in which he played this season, and he had totaled 24 tackles (17 solo) and one interception across nine games.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Sustains oblique injury

    Benford suffered an oblique injury in Thursday's 28-25 win over the Lions, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Benford played 32 snaps while tallying four tackles prior to exiting the game. There was no official diagnosis provided, though coach Sean McDermott noted that Benford is week-to-week. That puts his status for Thursday's Week 13 matchup against the Patriots in serious jeopardy.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Nabs first pick

    Benford totaled seven tackles (five solo), three passes defended and one interception in Sunday's 33-30 overtime loss to the Vikings.

    Benford snagged his first interception of the 2022 season and also set a season high with three passes defended. He's seen his playing time increase dramatically over the last few weeks as part of a banged-up secondary, with his snaps jumping from 37 to 77 in the span of one week.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: No injury designation

    Benford doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs.

    Benford will return to action in Week 6 after missing the previous two games due to a hand injury. The rookie sixth-round pick had to battle for a roster spot, but he's been thrust into an expanded role for Buffalo's injury-depleted secondary.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Possibility for Week 6

    Benford, who has missed the past two games with a hand injury, returned to a limited practice Wednesday, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

    Benford has quickly gone from a sixth-round rookie who had to fight for a spot on the team to a key contributor for an injury-depleted secondary. Fellow rookie Kaiir Elam has played so well that Benford may not be a shared starter when he returns, but he's proven capable enough that he'll see the field plenty for the rest of the season.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Remains out Sunday

    Benford (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Benford sustained a fractured hand in the Bills' Week 3 loss to the Dolphins and required surgery. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to the field, but Kaiir Elam and Cam Lewis will likely see increased run against Pittsburgh.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Will need surgery

    Benford will need surgery to repair the fractured hand he suffered in the team's loss to the Dolphins on Sunday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Benford is looking at a multi-week absence, although an exact timetable for his return is not yet known. With Dane Jackson's (neck) status still up in the air and Tre'Davious White (knee) certain to miss next week due to his IR status, the Bills are looking thin in the secondary. If Jackson is unable to return Sunday against the Ravens, Ja'Marcus Ingram will likely be looking at extra opportunity.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Has fractured hand

    Benford fractured his hand in Sunday's 21-19 loss to the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    A timetable for the rookie cornerback's return has yet to be established, but Benford's most likely facing a multi-week absence. Ja'Marcus Ingram took over after Benford got hurt in Miami, and Ingram will likely continue to play a larger role while Benford recovers.
