Bills' Cody Ford: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday.

Ford underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn meniscus earlier this week. He has started seven games for the Bills this year. The 2019 second-round pick should be ready for the 2021 season. Jon Feliciano will see continued starter's work on the offensive line in the meantime.

Bills' Cody Ford: Suffers season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford suffered a torn meniscus in practice and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season as a result, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Ford had been bothered by an ankle injury prior to the Bills' Week 11 bye, but this new knee issue will keep him sidelined until 2021. The Bills get center Mitch Morse (concussion) back for a Week 12 matchup against the Chargers, but Ford's absence impacts their depth along the offensive line.

Bills' Cody Ford: Still limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford, who missed the team's Week 9 contest against the Cardinals with an ankle injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

The Bills have a somewhat healthy offensive line unit heading into Sunday's game against the Chargers, so they don't need to force Ford back into the lineup unless they're fully comfortable with his health status.

Bills' Cody Ford: Unable to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game in Arizona.

Ford was injured in last week's win over Seattle and was only able to return to practice this week on a limited basis. While the Bills' O-Line will lose one of its regulars in Ford, it will get starting center Mitch Morse back after a one-game absence.

Bills' Cody Ford: Status in question for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Ford was a non-participant Wednesday but ended the week with consecutive limited practices, providing a chance for him to play Sunday. He's the only Buffalo lineman with an injury tag heading into Week 10.

Bills' Cody Ford: Still managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (ankle) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

The good news was that Ford was able to practice in limited fashion, as he missed all of Wednesday's session. Jon Feliciano (back) and Brian Winters (knee) were also listed on Thursday's injury report for the offensive linemen group.

Bills' Cody Ford: Starts week with absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford did not practice Wednesday after leaving Sunday's game with an ankle injury.

It looks like the Bills will get center Mitch Morse (center) back for this week's game in Arizona, but fellow starter Ford seems like he'll be a question mark all week. Lineman Brian Winters (knee) also was unable to practice Wednesday.

Bills' Cody Ford: Leaves game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Seattle due to an ankle injury.

Ford came into the contest battling a knee issue, but he appears to be dealing with a new issue. Ford's absence will hurt the depth of the offensive line Sunday, as starting center Mitch Morse (concussion) is sitting out Week 9.

Bills' Cody Ford: Officially active
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (knee) will suit up in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Ford drew the questionable tag despite practicing fully Friday, so this news isn't quite surprising. The Oklahoma product's return following a two-game absence will help offset the loss of Mitch Morse (concussion) for the contest.

Bills' Cody Ford: Questionable for Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (knee) practiced fully Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

The second-year lineman is trending upward after missing the last two games. The Bills are already down starting center Mitch Morse (concussion) for Sunday's game, so if they can get Ford back out there, they'll at least approach what looks like a normal offensive line group.

Bills' Cody Ford: Returns to limited work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (knee) will return to a limited practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills got back starter Jon Feliciano for Sunday's win over the Patriots, and the guard was an important factor in the Buffalo running game coming back to life. If Buffalo can get Ford back this week, it will be that much closer to its regular unit, though Mitch Morse is dealing with a concussion.

Bills' Cody Ford: Won't face Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Ford (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against New England, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Ford will miss his second straight contest due to a knee injury sustained Week 6, a development which will once again thrust Ike Boettger into the starting lineup. With Ford sitting out again, the Bills will look to the return of fellow starting guard Jon Feliciano to provide a boost.

Bills' Cody Ford: DNP to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford continues to sit out practice due to a knee injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Ford missed Week 7 after suffering the injury during a Monday night game in Week 6, and he continues to be a "week-to-week" proposition as described by coach Sean McDermott. On a brighter note, the Bills appear as if they'll be getting fellow starter Jon Feliciano (chest) back sooner than Ford.

Bills' Cody Ford: Ruled out for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's divisional contest against the Jets.

Ford sat out practice all week before being officially ruled out to suit up in New York. Coach Sean McDermott has called Ford "week-to-week," so it doesn't look like a return against the Patriots on Nov. 1 is necessarily guaranteed either. With Quinton Spain having been released Wednesday, both Ike Boettger and Daryl Williams look set to start at offensive guard versus the Jets.

Bills' Cody Ford: Misses practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford, who suffered a knee injury in Monday's loss to the Chiefs, was unable to practice Thursday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Coach Sean McDermott put Ford in the "week-to-week" category with a group of teammates earlier this week, so it's starting to seem unlikely the second-year player will resume his starting spot on the offensive line this week against the Jets. The team also released starter Quinton Spain on Wednesday, so some line reshuffling is in the works.

Bills' Cody Ford: Doubtful to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford did not return to Monday's game against the Chiefs due to a knee injury.

Ford dealt with a groin injury earlier this season, but he's now nursing a knee issue. The severity of the injury is unclear at this time.

Bills' Cody Ford: Good to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (groin) is active for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.

Ford was listed as questionable heading into this contest, but he'll continue to start at right guard in Tuesday's matchup.

Bills' Cody Ford: Question mark for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (groin) was a limited participant for Saturday's walkthrough practice and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Tennessee, the Bills official site reports.

Ford can start at guard or tackle, but the Bills are deep enough that they have other options to take Ford's place if needed. However, if Brian Winters (knee, questionable) has to sit, Ford's status takes on more import.

Bills' Cody Ford: Option to start at guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford will get work at both right guard and right tackle during the first part of training camp, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills picked Ford early in the second round of the 2019 Draft, but he was used mostly as a right tackle in his rookie season, sharing time with veteran Ty Nsekhe. With normal starting right guard Jon Feliciano likely to miss the start of the season with a torn pectoral though, the team seems to be at least considering kicking Ford over to fill that void. Incoming free agents Brian Winters, Daryl Williams and Evan Boehm are also options at right guard should the Bills want to stick with Ford at right tackle.

Bills' Cody Ford: Healthy for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford, who had offseason surgery on his right shoulder, will be ready to go by training camp, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills' offensive line returns all starters, though last year when all guys were healthy Ford worked in a strict -- and perhaps somewhat unusual -- timeshare with veteran Ty Nsekhe. That battle will continue throughout camp, and while Ford -- a second-rounder in 2019 -- has the upside, Nsekhe has performed well and it's no guarantee the team just hands the job to Ford full-time simply because he's gaining more experience.
