The Buccaneers released Pope (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. It's unclear what is ailing Pope, but when he is healthy, he will be eligible to join a new team for the 2021 campaign. The 27-year-old has amassed 37 carries for 140 rushing yards since joining the NFL in 2016.
Pope (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Pope played 35 percent of the Buccaneers' offensive snaps in the preseason opener but didn't appear in Saturday's exhibition loss to the Titans. While the nature of the 27-year-old's injury isn't clear, he'll be forced to miss the 2021 campaign following his placement on injured reserve unless he works out an injury settlement with the team.
Pope (undisclosed) was waived by Tampa Bay with an injury designation Sunday. If Pope clears waivers, he will revert to the Buccaneers injured reserve. The 27-year-old has 140 career rushing yards on 37 carries.
Pope's signing a contract with the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Tampa Bay liked what it saw from Pope in rookie minicamp and will reward him with a contract. The 27-year-old Pope has 140 career rushing yards on 37 carries.
Pope was signed to the Chargers' practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Chargers have routinely used their weekly practice squad call-ups to rotate their running back depth chart, so it makes sense Pope would return to the team's practice squad. The health of Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage have relegated Pope to obscurity, but the shifty back did see action in five games so far this season and has totaled 118 yards across 23 touches.
