The Colts released Phillip Walker from the practice squad.
The former Temple quarterback spent last season and the start of this season on Indy’s practice squad, but he’s being released to make room for running back Jeremy McNichols. Walker should receive interested, and the Colts might be interested in bringing him back at some point.
The Colts signed Jeremy McNichols to the practice squad.
McNichols was cut by the Niners earlier this month. He’ll look to stick around on Indy’s practice squad before working his way up to the 53-man roster. McNichols is off the fantasy radar.
Jehu Chesson signed with Washington’s practice squad.
The 2017 fourth-round pick of the Chiefs was released at 53-man roster cuts, and he lands in a good spot with the Redskins. The former Michigan receiver will look to develop and work his way onto the 53-man roster.
Rob Kelley (toe) has been placed on injured reserve.
Kelley suffered a toe injury in Sunday’s loss to the Colts, and though he returned to the game, he’s being placed on injured reserve. Assuming Kelley doesn’t return as a designated-to-return player, his season ends with four carries for eight yards in two games, as Adrian Peterson took over as Washington’s lead runner. This injury should open the door for Samaje Perine to becoming an active on game days.
Dalyn Dawkins has been promoted to the Titans’ 53-man roster.
Dawkins, the nephew of Hall of Fame safety Brian Dawkins, is a rookie out of Colorado State that will serve as depth behind Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis. He is off the fantasy radar, but the five-foot-seven back is someone to keep tabs on in the case of an injury to Lewis in particular.
LeSean McCoy has affidavit filed against him.
The affidavit has been filed by Stephanie Maisonet, the mother of McCoy’s six-year-old son. Maisonet is supporting Delicia Cordon, who already filed a lawsuit against McCoy and alleged the Bills running back was responsible for her getting robbed and beaten. Maisonet is alleging that McCoy abused their son and left a bruise. The bottom line is now that two women are coming out against McCoy for alleged abuse, so this probably isn’t going to end well for him. Don’t be surprised if the NFL places him on the Commissioner’s Exempt list soon, and we might not see McCoy back on the field until this is sorted out. Remember, Adrian Peterson served a de-factor year-long suspension for disciplining his son with a switch; that might be the precedent for potential discipline here.
The Vikings waived Stacy Coley.
The 2017 seventh-round pick was waived to make room for kicker Dan Bailey. The former Miami receiver could certainly be brought back on the practice squad if no other team claims him, as the Vikings like him.
