  • Raiders' Kyler Fackrell: Lands on IR

    The Raiders placed Fackrell (undisclosed) on injured reserve Friday. Fackrell's placement on IR before roster cuts means he's ineligible to return this season, which is a big blow to the Raiders' pass-rush depth. In his absence, Clelin Ferrell and Malcolm Koonce will likely compete for a backup spot behind the dynamic duo of Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones.

  • Chargers' Kyler Fackrell: Activated from IR

    Fackrell was activated off of injured reserve Saturday. The linebacker has been out since Dec. 11 while dealing with a knee injury, and he'll return in time for the Chargers' must-win matchup with the Raiders on Sunday. In 12 games this season, Fackrell has recorded 15 tackles, three sacks, a pass deflection, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

  • Chargers' Kyler Fackrell: Secures second sack

    Fackrell picked up two tackles and a sack in Monday's 28-14 win over the Raiders. Despite playing under 50 percent of the defensive snaps through four weeks, Fackrell now is second on the team in sacks to begin the year. Essentially a passing-down specialist since his career year with the Packers back in 2018, the 29-year-old could have some success in that role as the pass rusher opposite Joey Bosa on an emerging defensive unit.

  • Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Activated off IR

    Fackrell (lower leg) was activated off injured reserve and will be available for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

  • Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Won't be activated for Week 16

    Fackrell (lower leg) is not expected to be activated for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Fackrell has been residing on injured reserve since Dec. 1, but a return to practice Wednesday provided hope for a potential Week 16 appearance. The Packers' 2016 third-round draft choice started each of his seven game outings between Weeks 5 and 12, but Carter Coughlin now stands to garner a third consecutive start at outside linebacker with Fackrell unavailable.

  • Giants' Kyler Fackrell: Shifts to IR

    The Giants placed Fackrell (lower leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports. Fackrell suffered a lower-leg injury during this past Sunday's win over Cincinnati and will require at least three weeks of recovery. He's eligible to return in Week 16 against the Ravens. In his first season in New York, Fackrell started eight of 11 games and produced 31 tackles and three sacks. Jabaal Sheard and Cam Brown are candidates to start in Fackrell's place, although Oshane Ximines (shoulder) has been designated to return from IR and could be an option as well.

    Fackrell (neck) has returned to Sunday's game against the Rams, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Fackrell was briefly examined after injuring his neck, but he's now managed to return early in the fourth quarter. If Oshane Ximines (shoulder) can't return, Fackrell could see an every-down role on defense.

  • Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Links up with Giants

    The Giants and Fackrell came to terms on a one-year, $4.6 million contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. This marks the second Packers linebacker after Blake Martinez to head to New York in as many days. If Markus Golden moves on as an unrestricted free agent, Fackrell could get the opportunity to serve as one of the Giants' starting outside linebackers in 2020. Before Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith landed in Green Bay last offseason and bumped him down the depth chart, Fackrell showed his worth as a pass rusher in 2018, accumulating 10.5 sacks.

  • Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Questionable again

    Fackrell (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Fackrell finished the week as a limited participant and is listed as questionable for the third straight contest. The 27-year-old has yet to miss a game this season and there's no reason to believe that changes in Week 5.

    Fackrell (shoulder) is active for Thursday's tilt against the Eagles, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

  • Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Good to go for Week 3

    Fackrell (shoulder) is officially listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos. Fackrell came into the contest logging limited practice but, as evidenced by this news, has shaken off the shoulder injury. With a total of 44 defensive snaps and 39 special teams snaps to this point in the season, expect the linebacker to continue his rotational role for Sunday's contest.

    Fackrell racked up 28 tackles (22 solo) and three sacks over 16 games with the Packers in 2017. Fackrell contributed more than he did during his rookie season of 2016, but he started just two games and was still primarily a part-time player. He figures to fill a similar role in 2018.

  • Packers' Kyler Fackrell: Out for Week 12

    Fackrell is out for Week 12 with a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports. Fackrell did not participate in any of this week's practices, giving the impression that his hamstring injury was suffered in Week 11 against the Redskins. He is merely a depth option for the Packers at outside linebacker, so his absence should only affect Green Bay should the team suffer any injuries.
