The Bills are signing veteran cornerback Xavier Rhodes to the practice squad, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

It reunites Rhodes with Leslie Frazier from their time together in Minnesota.

The Bills went into Sunday’s game against the Dolphins without cornerbacks Dane Jackson and Tre'Davious White and rookie Christian Benford fractured his hand in the loss. They also were without safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, so they’re thin in the defensive backfield.

Rhodes spent the past two seasons with the Colts, starting 29 games and totaling 81 tackles, three interceptions and 19 pass breakups.

He made the Pro Bowl three times with the Vikings and earned All-Pro honors in 2017.

  1. Practice squads need to be capped @ players with 5 year or less service. End of story – stashing dudes ruins a potential minor league – just build a minor league!!!!

  2. I’d be shocked if Rhodes isn’t elevated to the 53 man roster for this week especially with Benford out.
