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.

EDGE Analysis

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 being ruled out for the contest with a concussion.

EDGE Analysis

That makes Stanford the middle linebacker for this one, though it's not a certainty that he'll be in the field for every defensive play like the crazy 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) 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

The backup linebacker will be iffy to play in the opener Sunday in Baltimore, though 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) was limited in practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 signed a contract with Buffalo on Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanford served mainly as a reserve linebacker and special teams player for the Jets last season, seeing only 92 snaps on defense. He will likely resume that role, but in new colors during 2018.

Stanford re-signed with the Jets on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Stanford played nine games for the Jets last season, totaling 22 tackles while also starting three of those contests. After previously spending time on the Jaguars and Lions, Stanford will hope to make New York's roster again as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.
