Cowboys' Robert Blanton: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton (ankle) has participated in contract drills during training camp, SportsDayDFW.com reports.

Blanton logged 106 tackles in the 2014 season, but he didn't record over 35 in his next two seasons -- partially due to last campaign being cut short by an ankle injury. He'll be in the thick of a battle with Jeff Heath for the starting strong safety spot, as Heath hasn't flashed overly-impressive numbers in his four-year career. Keep on an eye on this competition throughout preseason.

Cowboys' Robert Blanton: Signs with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 was on the field for 25 percent of Buffalo's defensive snaps and 35 percent of its special teams snaps, and 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.

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.
