Why Ronald Darby was benched

Posted by Chris Brown on November 8, 2016 – 3:02 am

Bills CB Ronald Darby was benched late in the first half in favor of veteran CB Corey White. White would play the entire second half at Darby’s familiar left cornerback spot. Head coach Rex Ryan explained why in his postgame press conference.

“He was sick. He wasn’t feeling good. It’s my fault,” said Ryan. “I should’ve pulled him earlier, so that’s on me. He’s a much better player than what he showed out there. That was a mistake on my part, not his. He gave us what he had. I just know he wasn’t feeling well. So that’s why I did what I did.”

Darby had a pass interference call go against him down by Buffalo’s goal line giving Seattle a 1st-and-goal at the Bills three-yard line. Christine Michael would go in for a touchdown on the next play.
