  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Signs contract with Jets

    The Jets signed Cager to a reserve/futures contract Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Cager spent the 2021 season on and off of the Browns' practice squad before signing a new contract with the Jets for the 2022 campaign. The wide receiver will return to the team he was with in 2020, a year in which he appeared in two games and made two catches for 35 yards.

  • Lawrence Cager: Added to Browns' practice squad

    Cager was signed to the Browns' practice squad Tuesday.

    The wide receiver was cut Friday but will return to the team's practice squad Tuesday. Cager has been on the active roster twice this season and failed to log a catch.

  • Lawrence Cager: Gets cut Friday

    Cager was cut by the Browns on Friday.

    Cager became expendable with the Browns' wide receiver unit healthy now that Jarvis Landry has returned from the COVID list and Anthony Schwartz has come back from concussion protocols. With the Browns' defensive line and secondary units dealing with several ailments, it makes sense to use that roster space elsewhere. Cager appeared in one game for the Browns this season in Week 11 against the Lions, playing one snap on offense and generating no stats.

  • Browns' Lawrence Cager: Inactive Monday

    Cager (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Raiders, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.

    Cager was signed to the Browns' active roster ahead of Week 15, but he'll be a healthy scratch against Las Vegas. Since Jarvis Landry (illness) will be sidelined, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins and Anthony Schwartz are in line to serve as the team's top receivers.

  • Browns' Lawrence Cager: Signed to active roster

    Cager was signed to the Browns' active roster Thursday.

    Cager spent the last few weeks on Cleveland's practice squad, but he'll join the active roster since Jarvis Landry (illness) is on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Anthony Schwartz (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Raiders. Cager played just one offensive snap in his lone regular-season appearance this year.

  • Browns' Lawrence Cager: Receives little run in win

    Cager played one snap and was not targeted in Sunday's 13-10 win over Detroit.

    Cager and Ja'Marcus Bradley were signed off the practice squad, as the Browns rolled without Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) and Anthony Schwartz (concussion) against the Lions. Bradley (55 snaps) was the clear beneficiary of the opportunity. Should only one of the injured receivers return next Monday in Baltimore, then Cager would be the first removal from the active roster.

  • Browns' Lawrence Cager: Jumps to active roster

    Cager has been elevated to the Browns' active roster ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

    Cager was just activated off the practice squad's reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus. He will now help provide depth at receiver in Week 11. With Anthony Schwartz (concussion) ruled out and Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) questionable, he could potentially see some snaps right away.

  • Lawrence Cager: Back to practice squad

    The Browns restored Cager to their practice squad Wednesday after he spent time on Cleveland's reserve/COVID-19 list, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Cager landed on the Browns' reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for COVID-19 before Week 10. After missing time over the last week, the receiver will return to the Browns' practices as soon as possible.

  • Lawrence Cager: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Cager did test positive for COVID-19 on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Cager was placed on the Browns' practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, but it was not known if he had actually tested positive or was a close contact. Cager will try to clear protocols and return to the field as quickly as possible.

  • Lawrence Cager: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Cager was placed on the Browns' practice squad COVID-19 list Monday.

    Cager joined the Browns' practice squad Oct. 4 after failing to make the Jets' initial 53-man roster to begin the season. The second-year wideout has yet to make an appearance this season, so his absence shouldn't affect Cleveland's offensive gameplan.

  • Lawrence Cager: Joins Browns' practice squad

    Cager signed with the Browns' practice squad Monday.

    Cager failed to make the Jets' 53-man roster to begin the 2021 campaign, but he'll attempt to carve out a role on Cleveland's practice squad. The 24-year-old appeared in two games with the Jets last year and hauled in two of his six targets for 35 yards.

  • Lawrence Cager: Let go by Jets

    Cager was waived by the Jets on Monday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Cager appeared in two games for the Jets last season, recording two catches for 35 yards. The second-year receiver scored a touchdown in the Jets preseason game against the Eagles but clearly it wasn't enough for him to make the roster. Look for Cager to try to sneak onto a roster or practice squad somewhere else.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Finds end zone in preseason finale

    Cager (leg) caught three of five targets for 21 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason finale against Philadelphia.

    Cager battled a leg injury earlier in camp but has since recovered. He used his 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame to create space and come down with a two-yard fade pass from Josh Johnson in the end zone to cap New York's opening drive. Cager's an intriguing red-zone target, but the second-year wideout out of Georgia hasn't made much of an impact thus far. He's likely headed for a practice squad spot at best once the Jets cut down their roster.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Leaves OTA with apparent leg injury

    Cager went down in pain during Thursday's OTA with an apparent injury to his left leg, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record, the injury looked like a left hamstring issue. Cager ultimately made his way to the locker room on his own alongside a trainer, so it appears he may have avoided the worst-case scenarios. Even so, he's likely set to miss some offseason work as a result, which doesn't bode well for a receiver on the roster bubble. He should still have plenty of time to get back in action if the issue isn't deemed serious.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Inks deal with Jets

    Cager signed with the Jets on Saturday.

    Cager played two games for the Jets earlier this season, catching two passes for 35 yards. With Denzel Mims (personal) ruled out this week and Jamison Crowder (calf) questionable, Cager will add necessary depth for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks.

  • Lawrence Cager: Clean bill of health

    Cager (undisclosed) was restored from the practice squad injured list Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    Cager spent three weeks on the injured list but will return to team activities. The undrafted rookie out of Georgia has already been elevated to the active roster twice, so the Jets would need to sign him to the 53-man roster in order to promote him again.

  • Lawrence Cager: Managing injury

    The Jets placed Cager (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Wednesday.

    Cager's placement on the injured list allows the Jets to restore fellow wideout Donte Moncrief (undisclosed) to the practice squad. Coach Adam Gase said he expects Cager to miss multiple weeks.

  • Lawrence Cager: Back to practice roster

    Cager (hamstring) reverted to the Jets' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Cager suffered a serious hamstring injury during Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and coach Adam Gase expects him to miss a "couple weeks." The 23-year-old wide receiver will officially be on the practice squad during his recovery.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Expected to miss a couple weeks

    Cager (hamstring) is expected to miss a "couple weeks," per coach Adam Gase, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports. "The MRI wasn't as bad as what it looked on the field. Obviously it's going to be probably a couple weeks, but we got a little lucky there," Gase said.

    Cager sustained the injury in Thursday's game against the Broncos, crumpling to the turf while clutching his hamstring on a non-contact injury. While it's a relief that the undrafted rookie didn't suffer an even more serious injury, Cager looks unlikely to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 5 and could miss time beyond that game as well.

  • Jets' Lawrence Cager: Back on the active roster

    Cager has been added to the Jets' active roster for Thursday night's game against the Broncos.

    Cager was elevated from the Jets' practice squad to the team's active roster ahead of Week 3 action and then proceeded to haul in two of his four targets for 35 yards in a 36-7 loss to the Colts. After that contest, he reverted back to the practice squad, but he's been summoned once again. It remains to be seen how busy he'll be Thursday night, however, with Jamison Crowder (hamstring) trending toward a return to action and Jeff Smith (shoulder) now off IR.
