  • Giants' Tony Jefferson: Dealing with foot issue

    Jefferson (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Jefferson played 21 percent of defensive snaps Week 5 after being called up from the practice squad, but it appears he picked up a foot issue in the process. The depth safety will have two more chances to up his activity ahead of Sunday's contest against Baltimore.

  • Giants' Tony Jefferson: No practice Wednesday

    Jefferson will not practice Wednesday due to an undisclosed injury, Ralph Vacchiano of Fox Sports reports. Jefferson was signed from the Giants' practice squad to the active roster ahead of the team's Week 5 win over the Packers, and he recorded four tackles across 13 defensive snaps -- both season highs. However, he presumably picked up an injury during the contest as well and will be in danger of missing Week 6 if he doesn't return to practice Thursday or Friday.

  • Giants' Tony Jefferson: Signed off practice squad

    The Giants signed Jefferson from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Jefferson was elevated to the active roster in Week 1 and Week 2 and logged a total of 19 snaps between the two games. He may be in for a larger role now that he's been signed to the active roster, as he's been working with the first-team defense during practice, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Jefferson has ample NFL experience with 101 career games under his belt, but he hasn't been a major contributor since 2018 with Baltimore.

Jefferson joined the G-Men's practice squad last week after getting released by Baltimore. He has seemingly made a quick impression, as he will now suit up and provide depth at safety to go along with presumably helping out on special teams.

  • 49ers' Tony Jefferson: Placed on injured reserve

    Jefferson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Jefferson didn't participate in Tuesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, and the issue is severe enough to land him on injured reserve. The 29-year-old was a long shot to make the 53-man roster ahead of the regular season, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will now compete for a roster spot after he secured a one-year deal with San Francisco on Thursday.

  • Tony Jefferson: Over knee injury

    Jefferson (knee) is visiting the Colts for a potential workout, suggesting that he's over the knee injury he was dealing with at the end of his Ravens tenure, NFL reporter Josina Anderson reports. Jefferson tore his ACL in October of 2019, but he has recovered and is ready to resume his NFL career. The 28-year-old safety has 98 career games of NFL experience under his belt.

  • Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Unlikely to stay in Baltimore

    Jefferson (knee) is expected to be a cap casualty for the Ravens this offseason, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. Jefferson is entering the fourth and final season of a four-year, $34 million contract, with a non-guaranteed $7 million base salary. He was one of the leaders of the Baltimore defense in 2017 and 2018, but he struggled in 2019 even before he suffered a torn ACL in Week 5. Jefferson's injury turned the starting job over to Chuck Clark, who took full advantage of the opportunity and then signed a three-year contract extension Monday. The only realistic way for Jefferson to stay in Baltimore would involve a pay cut and a willingness to handle a part-time role -- tough pills to swallow for a 28-year-old who had 74 or more tackles in five consecutive seasons from 2014-18.

  • Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Notches tackle

    Jefferson (ankle) recorded one tackle during Thursday's 26-13 preseason win over the Packers. Jefferson appears to have fully recovered after undergoing ankle surgery earlier this offseason. The 27-year-old safety projects to start opposite Earl Thomas in Baltimore's formidable secondary.

  • Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Spotted at practice

    Jefferson (ankle) was a limited participant for Tuesday's practice during minicamp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. This was the first time Jefferson had practiced during team activities in any fashion since undergoing ankle surgery in January. This is a positive sign for the safety's availability heading into training camp, but neither the team nor Jefferson has committed to a definitive timeline for a full return. A healthy Jefferson is expected to form one of the best safety tandems on paper in the league with Earl Thomas for 2019.

  • Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Building rapport with Earl Thomas

    Jefferson (ankle) has spent extensive time working out with free-agent pickup and secondary mate Earl Thomas this offseason, Sean Grogan of the Cecil Whig reports. "I got a chance to work out with him before we had the voluntary team workouts in one-on-one sessions," Jefferson said of Thomas. "I can tell you he's a real serious guy, but he also has a lighter side to him, too." Jefferson looks like he's ready to roll for the start of the Ravens' offseason program after undergoing minor ankle surgery in January. It's also encouraging to hear he's going the extra mile to build rapport with Thomas, who inked a four-year, $55 million pact with Baltimore in March. Considering the Ravens are also stacked at cornerback with Marlon Humphrey, Jimmy Smith, Brandon Carr and Tavon Young under contract for the upcoming season, Baltimore clearly has the coverage talent to allow Jefferson to consistently play in the box this upcoming season. Jefferson could also play a part in replacing former starting inside linebacker C.J. Mosley.

  • Ravens' Tony Jefferson: Gets surgery on ankle

    Jefferson recently had ankle surgery and is expected to require 4-to-6 weeks for recovery, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. Jefferson missed Weeks 14 and 15 with an ankle injury, returning for the final two weeks of the regular season as well as a playoff loss to the Chargers. He has trouble sticking with wide receivers in coverage, but his excellent work defending the run and the flats should be enough for the Ravens to justify the third season of his four-year, $34 million contract. Coming off five consecutive seasons with at least 4.9 tackles per game, Jefferson will celebrate his 27th birthday at the end of January. He was one of the youngest players in the 2013 rookie class and has missed just three games through six NFL campaigns.

    Jefferson (thigh) will play in Sunday's game versus the Bengals. Jefferson has been nursing this thigh injury throughout November but hasn't missed a game. The sixth-year pro has 54 tackles, one sack and three pass breakups in nine games, so his IDP value isn't flashy.

    Jefferson (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Jefferson was unable to get fully healthy during Baltimore's bye, and his Week 11 status appears uncertain. It's possible that Jefferson could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Bengals. If the starting safety is unable to suit up, expect Anthony Levine to slot into the starting lineup.
