Bills' Robert Blanton: Signs with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton signed with the Bills on Friday.

Blanton joins the Bills after playing in all 16 games for the Vikings last season, when he compiled 34 tackles. However, that came after Blanton posted 106 tackles in 2014, so although he'll likely begin as a second-stringer in Buffalo, the veteran safety will aim for a bounce back season with his new team.

Vikings' Robert Blanton: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robert Blanton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Minnesota Vikings are still missing Harrison Smith (hamstring) for Sunday's game, but with Andrew Sendejo (knee) returning to action, it looks like any avenue to the starting lineup will close for Blanton, who saw just six snaps a week earlier. Sendejo and Anthony Harris look to be in line to serve as the starting safety tandem.

Vikings' Robert Blanton: Probable to face Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robert Blanton (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Listed as questionable for last Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Blanton ended up playing in the contest, but his omission from the starting lineup strongly suggested that his knee was still a concern. He has clearly made progress since that time, and with Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring) ruled out for another week, Blanton and Andrew Sendejo will likely be the starting safeties. However, there is some chance that undrafted rookie Anthony Harris will be involved, following his eight-tackle showing in Week 14.

Vikings' Robert Blanton: Not expected to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robert Blanton (knee) is not listed as a starter for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Minnesota Vikings will move starting cornerback Terence Newman to safety, alongside recently-signed Anthony Harris. Although Blanton is active for Thursday's game, this decision strongly indicates that his knee is a major concern. He thus makes for a poor IDP option, with both Newman and Harris offering more temporary promise. First-round rookie Trae Waynes will take Newman's spot at cornerback.

Vikings' Robert Blanton: Active for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robert Blanton (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

With Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring) and Andrew Sendejo (knee) both ruled out ahead of time, Blanton figures to play nearly all of the defensive snaps, assuming he's healthy enough to do so. According to ESPN's Ben Goessling, Anthony Harris will get the starting nod over Shuan Prater at the other safety spot. Given that Harris and Prater were just signed this week, Blanton is easily the best IDP option of the bunch.
