Stanford (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Stanford was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The Wagner product sustained the ankle injury last week against the Patriots, and it was serious enough to where Stanford had to be carted off the field. Stanford had three defensive snaps in his last five games, and therefore won't have much work to relinquish to another player.
Stanford (ankle) was limited for Wednesday's practice.
Considering he was carted off the field in Sunday's loss to New England, this doesn't come as a surprise and it would seem the linebacker is a long shot to play in the finale against Miami. That would likely mean more reps for rookie Corey Thompson, whom the Bills are giving an audition for next season.
Stanford is questionable to return to Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Stanford had to be carted off the field which doesn't bode well for his prospects of a return. More details will likely surface following Sunday's outcome.
Stanford, subbing in for Tremaine Edmunds (concussion) played every single defensive snap during Sunday's loss to the Bears. He led the team in tackles with eight (seven solo) and picked up his first NFL sack.
Edmunds likely won't be out too much longer, but the Bills do have a bye in Week 11 so there's a chance the team plays it safe with its prized rookie Week 10 against the Jets. That game has the potential to be sloppy for both teams with plenty of good defense being tossed around, so keep an eye on Stanford's and Edmunds' status leading into the contest.
Stanford will likely have a bigger role Sunday against the Bears with teammate Tremaine Edmunds ruled out for the contest with a concussion.
That makes Stanford the middle linebacker for this one, though it's not a certainty he'll be in the field for every defensive play like the insanely athletic Edmunds. Still, Stanford should be a cheap source of tackles and we'd be shocked if he didn't set a new season high in the category, with his previous being two as a spot sub following Edmunds' departure Monday night.
