Blanton (ankle) signed a contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Blanton played for the Bills last season, accumulating 35 combined tackles in 10 games. He started for a short stretch, but an injured ankle ended his season in what was an awful campaign health-wise for the Buffalo secondary. Blanton will likely fill a reserve role for the Cowboys going forward behind starting free safety Byron Jones. Blanton has 19 career starts and is only two years removed from a 106-tackle season, so he has some NFL experience if he were to be called upon during some portion of the upcoming season.
Blanton (foot) was placed on the IR Saturday, Bills' sideline reporter Sal Capaccio reports. After a demotion in snaps, Blanton injured his foot late in Sunday's win over the Bengals. Specifics of the injury did not come to light during the week, but he was ultimately ruled out for Week 12 in Friday's injury report. James Ihedigbo, Sergio Brown, and Jonathan Meeks are all in the mix for replacing Blanton at strong safety.
Blanton (foot) missed practice for the third straight day Friday and is listed as out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. The Bills are now down two strong safeties with Aaron Williams already out for the season, so they'll use some mixture of newcomer James Ihedigbo, Sergio Brown, or Jonathan Meeks to cover for the loss of Blanton.
Blanton (foot) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Jaguars, ESPN reports. Blanton, the Bills' starting strong safety, left Week 11's bout with the Bengals after sustaining a foot injury in the fourth quarter. The specifics of his injury haven't come to light though, making it unclear when he could return. In the interim, both James Ihedigbo and Jonathan Meeks are candidates to start in his place.
Blanton left Sunday's win over the Bengals late in the fourth quarter with a foot injury, BuffaloBills.com reports. Blanton was seeing starter's snaps just a short time ago, but he had to share the job Sunday following a poor stretch of play, took a stupid penalty in the game, and then ended up with an injury. His short window of IDP worth has closed rather quickly.
