Bills Missing Safety and Cornerback in Week 5

The Buffalo Bills have been struck hard by the injury bug this week. 

Safety Jordan Poyer and cornerback Christian Benford have now been ruled out for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 
Poyer played in the team's win over the Baltimore Ravens last week despite being limited at practices all week with a foot issue. However, he underwent X-rays following the game for his ribs.

Poyer has been great for the Bills so far this year, recording nine tackles and a league-leading four interceptions through the first month of the regular season. 

Cornerback Christian Benford has been ruled out for Sunday's game as well. 

Benford suffered a fractured hand in the Bills' Week 3 loss to the Miami Dolphins and required surgery to address it. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to football activities.
