In mix for starting job

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-01

Elam is in the running for the starting cornerback job opposite of Tre'Davious White, Patrick Warren of the Bills' official site reports.

Defensive backs coach John Butler implied Tuesday that the job is a three-way race between Elam, Dane Jackson and Christian Benford, and all have mixed in with the first team-defense during the early portion of training camp. Butler has good things to say about Elam, the team's 2022 first-rounder out of Florida. Said the coach: "All those plays that he's made so far in this camp, whether it be in one-on-one situations, which he's done a nice job of in our individual one-on-ones or in team have been when he starts at the line of scrimmage, can contest the wideout, he can minimize the space and he's done a nice job of that so far." Elam has the most upside of the three players, though Jackson and Benford offer some things where Elam isn't quite there yet, so while the latter might be a slight favorite, this will be one of the team's bigger job battles throughout August.

Will start divisional round

Elam will start at cornerback opposite of Tre'Davious White during Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Bengals, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Elam and Dane Jackson both left the Bills' wild-card win over Miami with injuries, but Elam was omitted from Buffalo's initial injury report Wednesday, while Jackson was cleared Thursday. However, despite being healthy, Jackson will give way to Elam to start the game, though both players will likely see action during the playoff matchup.

Not listed on injury report

Elam (leg) isn't listed on the injury report Wednesday.

Elam left Buffalo's wild-card win over Miami early due to leg cramps, but he should be good to go for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against Cincinnati. The rookie first-round pick has played a significant rotational role for the Bills' defense this year, so his availability should be a solid boost against Joe Burrow and the Bengals' balanced passing attack. He also might be pushed into a starter's role this weekend if Dane Jackson (knee) is unable to suit up.

Leaves with injury

Elam exited Sunday's 34-31 win over the Dolphins with leg cramps.

Elam was unable to finish the game. However, if it was just leg cramps it's unlikely to impact the rookie corner's availability next weekend. His practice status in the days ahead will likely shed more light on his potential to play in the AFC divisional round.
