Buffalo Bills rookie cornerback Christian Benford was designated to return from injured reserve on Thursday.

Benford was placed on IR on Nov. 26, two days after sustaining an oblique injury during Buffalo’s 28-25 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

Benford, 22, has recorded 24 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception in nine games (five starts) since being selected by the Bills in the sixth round out of Villanova.

The Bills (12-3) will travel to Cincinnati to meet the AFC North-leading Bengals on Monday.
