Report: Christian Benford suffered fractured hand
The Bills have another injury in their secondary.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, rookie cornerback Christian Benford suffered a fractured hand during Buffalo’s loss to Miami on Sunday.
A sixth-round pick out of Villanova, Benford had started Buffalo’s first three games. He was on the field for 58 percent of the snaps in the season-opening victory over the Rams. Then he played 91 percent of the defensive snaps in the victory over the Titans — when Buffalo’s injuries began piling up.
The Bills had a wave of heat-related issues on Sunday as well with the hot temperatures in South Florida.
Buffalo has a big matchup with Baltimore coming up in Week Four. The team’s injury report will be worth monitoring from Wednesday to Friday.
