The Buffalo Bills felt the effects of a depleted secondary after their Week 3 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Tre’Davious White is on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, putting him out for at least until Week 4.
Meanwhile, Christian Benford is also out after fracturing his hand.
Jordan Poyer is also out due to a hyperextended elbow.
Therefore, the Bills need help, and they are bringing in a veteran All-Pro.

In Rhodes Buffalo Trusts
Rhodes has been one of the best, as proven by his All-Pro selection in 2017.
The former Florida State standout is also a three-time Pro Bowler.
The Minnesota Vikings took him in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
He holds the franchise record for most passes defended by a rookie (10) and longest interception return (100 yards in 2016).
He played with the Vikings until 2019 before signing a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2020 offseason.
Rhodes signed another one-year contract with the Colts last season.
He has played 133 games in nine seasons and collected 453 total tackles.
The 32-year-old cornerback also has 92 passes defended, 13 interceptions, and three forced fumbles.
There’s no word yet if the Bills will sign Rhodes to their practice squad.
However, he will likely be elevated to the active roster due to Buffalo’s depleted secondary.
If all goes well, he might play for the Bills when they face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.NEXT: Fox Sports Trolls Bills After Week 3 Loss
