Should enter summer work as starter

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-20

Benford (knee) finished the 2023 regular season with 54 tackles, 10 passes defensed, two interceptions, two forced fumbles an a fumble recovery over 15 games.

The Bills cut longtime starter Tre'Davious White in the offseason for cap purposes, leaving Benford (who started 14 regular-season games last season) and Rasul Douglas as the likely starters entering the next campaign, though the do-it-all Taron Johnson often sees work as a corner. Buffalo is out of cap space and seems likely to draft a receiver with its first-round pick, so perhaps the only real competition for Benford's job during training camp will come from 2022 first-rounder Kaiir Elam, a player that's disappointed to date and saw action in only three regular-season games last season.

Won't suit up vs. Chiefs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-19

Benford (knee) is out for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Benford will be unavailable for the divisional round due to a knee injury he sustained during Monday's win versus the Steelers. In his stead, Dane Jackson could see an expanded role Sunday.

Another DNP on Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Benford (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

The second-year cornerback out of Villanova exited Buffalo's wild-card win after suffering a knee injury and he's now began the team's week of practice with two consecutive DNPs. Benford will almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

Sitting out Wednesday's practice

Benford (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Matt Parrino of Syracuse.com reports.

Benford injured his knee in Monday's 31-17 wild-card round win over the Steelers. Buffalo will host the Chiefs in the divisional round Sunday, and Benford could still avoid the injury report by returning to practice Thursday or Friday.

Iffy to return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Benford is considered questionable to return to Monday's wild-card matchup with the Steelers due to a knee injury.

There is no word on the severity of Benford's injury at this time. While he is sidelined, Siran Neal, Dane Jackson, Cam Lewis and Kaiir Elam are candidates to see extra snaps at cornerback.

Snags interception in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-19

Benford recorded a solo tackle, an interception and two pass deflections in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Cowboys.

Benford was able to pick off Dak Prescott in the fourth quarter, securing his first interception of the season. The cornerback has produced 40 tackles, eight pass deflections and a forced fumble along with the interception over 12 games in his sophomore campaign with Buffalo.

Good to go Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-17

Benford (hamstring) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

The second-year cornerback out of Villanova was limited both Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to log a full practice session Friday and is now in line to play this Sunday. Benford has started all eight games he's appeared in for the Bills this season, recording 30 total tackles and five pass deflections.

Limited at Wednesday's walk-through

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-15

Benford (hamstring) was a limited participant at the Bills' walkthrough practice Wednesday.

It's a step forward for Benford, who was unable to practice last week before sitting out of Monday's loss versus the Broncos. If he can upgrade to full participation Thursday or Friday, he may be able to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Ruled out Week 10

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-11

Benford (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against the Broncos.

Benford was unable to practice all week. The Bills' depth at secondary will be thin with both Benford and Micah Hyde (neck) ruled out for Monday's game. Dane Jackson, Cam Lewis and Siran Neal are all candidates for more cornerback depth snaps behind starters Taron Johnson and Rasul Douglas with Benford sitting out.
