Bills' Robert Blanton: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton (foot) was placed on injured reserve 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.

Bills' Robert Blanton: Out for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Robert Blanton: Doubtful to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Robert Blanton: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Robert Blanton: Possible demotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton, who had been the starting strong safety following a neck injury to Aaron Williams, is now rotating time in practice with James Ihedigbo, Sergio Brown and Jonathan Meeks, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Blanton posted 15 tackles over the Week 8-9 span, but he's been hurting the team with some sloppy coverage. The Bills used the bye week to make several changes in the starting lineup, and while they haven't named a specific starter for strong safety, did acknowledge the position as a problem area and almost everyone expects some sort of rotation Sunday against the Bengals. If you must own a Buffalo safety, pick Corey Graham and avoid Blanton r anyone over on the strong side for now.
