  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Clears COVID protocols

    Ford was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Placed on COVID list

    Ford (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Ford was one of four Broncos to land on the reserve/COVID 19 list Thursday, all of whom tested positive for the virus according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Though Ford could return in time for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, his status is now uncertain at best. Even so, his absence isn't likely to affect Denver's defense significantly as Ford has logged only 13 defensive snaps across 13 games on the campaign.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Returns from IR

    Ford (knee) has been added to the Broncos' active roster, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

    Ford's return will help add some depth to the Broncos' secondary. Prior to the injury, Ford was mainly used on special teams only seeing four defensive snaps.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Receives return designation

    Ford (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

    Ford landed on the injured list Oct. 16 with the knee injury, and he's already spent the minimum three games on injured reserve. The 26-year-old is eligible to be activated for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys, though there's a 21-day practice window during which he can now be reinstated.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Placed on short-term IR

    Ford (knee) was placed on short-term injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Ford's move to short-term IR is a corresponding roster move as running back Mike Boone (quad) comes off IR and is activated on the 53-man roster. The 26-year-old cornerback suffered a knee injury in Week 5 and was already ruled out for the Broncos' Week 6 matchup against the Raiders. The majority of Ford's snaps have come on special teams, so his absence should not have much of an impact on Denver's defensive scheme.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Ruled out Sunday

    Ford (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

    Ford will miss at least one game due to his knee injury after he was unable to practice this week. He'll have a short week to recover ahead of Thursday's Week 7 matchup against Cleveland.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: May miss multiple weeks

    Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Ford suffered a leg injury Sunday that may keep him out for a couple weeks, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Ford has appeared in all five games and registered three tackles during his first season with Denver. The 26-year-old has mostly played special teams for the Broncos this year, so his absence shouldn't have an effect on their defensive rotations.

  • Broncos' Mike Ford: Might not return Sunday

    Ford (knee) is questionable to return Sunday against the Steelers.

    Ford had been ever-present for the Broncos this season, but most of his snaps came on special teams, so his fantasy upside isn't very high even when he's available. If he can't return to action, Nate Hairston might be in line for an increase in his snap count.

  • Mike Ford: Surprisingly waived by Lions

    Ford was waived by the Lions on Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ford has been a standout on special teams for Detroit since 2018, and the 26-year-old opened training camp by taking first-team reps at nickelback. However, it appears undrafted rookie AJ Parker has since stolen that job and the Lions' new-look coaching staff will move on from Ford. However, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran quickly found a new home.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Making push for starting role

    Ford will compete for the starting nickel cornerback job in training camp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ford has logged just 78 snaps at slot cornerback since joining the Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2018, but he reportedly logged the majority of the first-team reps there during June's minicamp. However, Ford wil need to fend off free-agent acquisition Corn Elder this summer in order to secure a spot in the starting lineup come Week 1.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Sustains Week 15 foot injury

    Ford (foot) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Detroit's depth in the secondary will be depleted for the remainder of the afternoon should Ford prove unable to return, as the Lions find themselves in a tightly contested game in the second half. Ford garnered a season-high 24 defensive snaps last Sunday in a loss to Green Bay after fielding a combined 14 snaps on the defensive side over his first five appearances of the year. Injuries to Jeff Okudah (groin), Desmond Trufant (hamstring) and Darryl Roberts (hip) had already depleted Detroit's depth chart on the back end coming into Week 15.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Cleared from injury

    Ford (back) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ford was forced out of last week's win over the Bears with the back issue and never returned. This news suggests he's on track to return for Sunday's game against the Packers, where he'll likely assume his usual depth corner role while playing snaps on special teams.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Exits Sunday's contest

    Ford was removed from Sunday's win over the Bears with a back injury.

    The 25-year-old was considered questionable to return but never appeared to retake the field. Ford finished the contest with two tackles and should have his status updated once the Lions return to practice later this week.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Good to go Sunday

    Ford (concussion) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Bears.

    Meanwhile, Jeff Okudah (shoulder) has been ruled out, and Desmond Trufant (hamstring) has been placed on IR. If Darryl Roberts (hip) isn't activated by Saturday afternoon, Ford will handle a significant workload in Sunday's divisional contest. Justin Coleman and Amani Oruwariye are expected to start either way.

  • Lions' Mike Ford: Can't play Thursday

    Ford (concussion) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Texans, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ford won't be eligible to retake the field until he fully clears the league's five-step concussion protocol. His contributions are generally relegated to special teams, so his absence won't significantly impact the Lions' defensive scheme.
