Stuff that matters

The Bills signed cornerback Xavier Rhodes to their practice squad this week with designs on having him reinforce an injury-riddled secondary, but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen this weekend.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on Friday that Rhodes has a hamstring injury and that he is unlikely to be well enough to play against the Ravens as a result.

Rhodes last played for the Colts last season and joined the Bills at a moment when three corners — Christian Benford, Dane Jackson, and Cam Lewis — are on the injury report. Tre’Davious White is also out for at least one more game because he is on the physically unable to perform list.

Jackson and Lewis have been limited participants in practice this week and they’ll get injury designations later on Friday.
