  • Bills' Christian Benford: Coach calls him day-to-day

    Head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Benford is currently day-to-day with a shoulder injury, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Benford hurt his shoulder during Sunday's win against the Dolphins and is now questionable for the upcoming game against the Jaguars. With Tre'Davious White (Achilles) out for the year, Buffalo could be extremely thin at corner if the 23-year-old Benford is unable to play.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Returns to field

    Benford (shoulder) has returned to Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

    Benford underwent an X-ray after taking a hit from Raheem Mostert in the first half. Although the X-ray results are unknown, it would seem that they were negative after Benford took the field on special teams. However, it's worth noting that Dane Jackson is still playing over him at corner.

  • Bills' Christian Benford: Set to start Week 1

    Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Benford will start in Monday's game at the Jets, Ryan O'Halloran of The Buffalo News reports.

    In a surprising turn of events, the 2022 sixth-round draft pick beat out 2020 seventh-rounder Dane Jackson and 2022 first-rounder Kaiir Elam for the starting cornerback job opposite Tre'Davious White. Whether the starter designation indicates that Benford will be in line for a true full-time role still isn't clear, as both Elam and Jackson played more snaps than Benford in 2022 and could remain involved to some extent.

  • 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.
