Stanford (ankle) participated in the Bills' offseason program and called defensive signals for the second string unit, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports.
Stanford had been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 16 of last season, so his participation in any capacity is obviously good news. The 28-year-old saw a limited role on defense last season, but could compete for a more significant one if he can recover in time for training camp.
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' statuses 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.
Stanford (nose) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Stanford seems in line to suit up against the Chargers on Sunday and stands to receive limited defensive and special teams snaps.
Stanford (nose) practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener in Baltimore, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Stanford will likely only have a limited snap count even if he does suit up against the Ravens, though a potential absence would leave some special teams responsibilities for someone else.
Stanford (nose) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The backup linebacker will be iffy to play in the opener Sunday in Baltimore. However, the defense is relatively healthy otherwise, so his potential absence wouldn't be as big of a deal as it would be later in the season.
Stanford (nose) did not participate in practice Wednesday.
Stanford has been limited for over a week after suffering a nose injury in a preseason game against the Bengals, but nonetheless managed to make Buffalo's 53-man roster. The reserve linebacker is questionable to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday.
Coach Sean McDermott stated Monday that Stanford is week-to- week due to a nose injury suffered during Sunday's preseason loss to the Bengals, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Stanford was on the bubble for one of the final roster spots, so this could ultimately hurt him in his quest to make the team. Fellow reserve Tanner Vallejo will have a better chance to make his case for a roster spot and more playing time in Stanford's absence.
Stanford injured his nose and will not return to Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.
The exact nature of Stanford's injury isn't clear. In his absence, fellow reserve linebacker Tanner Vallejo should see all the reps he can handle for the remainder of the game.
Stanford agreed Wednesday with the Bills on a two-year, $3 million contract, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Stanford served mainly as a reserve linebacker and special teams player for the Jets last season, logging only 92 snaps on defense. He'll likely fill a similar role for the Jets' division rivals in 2018.
Stanford re-signed with the Jets on Monday.
Stanford was released by the Jets in a procedural move last Friday but now returns as expected after just a couple of days. The 26-year-old played nine games for New York last season, totaling 22 tackles while also starting three of those contests. After dealing with an ankle problem last term, Stanford will hope to make the team's roster again as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.
Stanford (ankle) was released by the Jets on Friday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
After receiving a promotion from the Jets' practice squad to the active roster last October, Stanford ultimately finished the 2016 campaign with 22 tackles across nine game appearances. However, he ended the season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury and will likely need to prove he's back to full strength before finding a new home ahead of training camp.
Stanford (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to the Jets' injured reserve, Dennis Waszak Jr. of AP Sports reports.
Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Dec. 7 and reverts to IR because no other team in the league placed a claim on him. He'll look to return to full strength in time for OTAs.
Stanford was waived/injured by the Jets on Wednesday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Stanford injured his ankle Monday night against the Colts and wasn't able to practice Wednesday. The Jets claimed ex-Jaguar Arthur Brown off waivers to get back to the 53-man roster limit.
Stanford has been signed from the Jets' practice squad, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Stanford will look to provide depth to a thin linebacker corps for the Jets. Erin Henderson is likely out for the year after being placed on the NFI and Darron Lee remains sidelined with an ankle injury, so Stanford could see some immediate action in Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
The Lions filled their entire 10-man practice squad, signing guard Rodney Austin, tight end Michael Egnew, fullback Emil Igwenagu, safety Nate Ness, receiver Andrew Peacock, defensive tackle Xavier Proctor, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, linebacker Julian Stanford, offensive tackle Michael Williams and running back George Winn.
