  • Nick Kwiatkoski: Released by Atlanta

    The Falcons released Kwiatkoski on Tuesday, Jeff Schultz of The Athletic reports. Kwiatkoski signed a one-year deal with Atlanta in May after appearing in eight games for the Raiders in 2021. He was expected to compete for a depth role at inside linebacker, but the return of Deion Jones made Kwiatkoski the odd man out. The 2016 fourth-round pick will look to find a new NFL opportunity before the start of the 2022 campaign.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Questionable to return Sunday

    Kwiatkoski (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against Washington. Kwiatkoski came into the contest with an ankle issue, so there's concern that he may have aggravated his previous injury. The backup linebacker mostly operates on special teams, so his absence shouldn't have an impact on the Raiders' defensive rotations.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Not featuring against Dallas

    Kwiatkoski (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports. The veteran linebacker already missed last week's game against the Bengals, and, in fact, he's yet to play a defensive snap since Week 7 when he featured in 11 of them against the Eagles. Expect Denzel Perryman to act as his replacement again.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Won't suit up Sunday

    Kwiatkowski (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

    Kwiatkoski (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Giants. Kwiatkoski injured his ankle during the second half of the Raiders' Week 9 contest against the Giants. If he is unable to return, then Marquel Lee will likely operate as the primary backup to Denzel Perryman.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Questionable to return

    Kwiatkoski (foot) is questionable to return Sunday against the Broncos, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Kwiatkoski picked up the injury in the second half, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to return. His absence would deplete the team's secondary, though, and Kwiatkoski's absence would mean even more snaps for Denzel Perryman.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Working as backup

    Kwiatkoski has mostly handled backup reps throughout the early days of training camp, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. Kwiatkoski started in all 12 of his appearances for Las Vegas last season, but it appears that the team views him as a reserve option going forward. Though the sixth-year linebacker is coming off the best season of his career, having notched 81 total tackles, he won't be worth fantasy consideration if his snap share diminishes.

  • Raiders' Nick Kwiatkoski: Optimistic about return

    Kwiatkoski underwent testing on his pectoral injury Sunday, and it's not expected to be a long-term issue, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Kwiatkoski suffered this injury during Sunday's season opener versus the Panthers and was quickly ruled out of the game, so it sounded like a potentially serious injury. He'll undergo an MRI that will provide an official diagnosis, but it appears he won't face a lengthy recovery. If he misses any time, though, Raekwon McMillan is expected to be the starting middle linebacker.

    Kwiatkoski (pectoral) will not return to the team's Week 1 contest against the Panthers. Kwiatkoski was making his debut for the team and logged six tackles prior to his exit. The Raiders will hope he is able to return for a Week 2 matchup against the Saints.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Notches third sack of season

    Kwiatkoski recorded a sack and five tackles in the Bears 21-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Kwiatkoski continues to be a solid IDP option while Danny Trevathan misses time, as he's averaged seven tackles over the last four weeks, and if Trevathan misses the Week 16 home contest against the Chiefs, Kwiatkoski will be a solid lineup option for fantasy managers.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Highly productive in victory

    Kwiatkoski notched 10 tackles in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday. Kwiatkoski's been filling in for Danny Trevathan, and he's seen a full-time snap share in four of the last five games. During that time, he's posted at least eight tackles on three occasions, making him a strong IDP option as long as Trevathan remains sidelined.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Solid performance

    Kwiatkoski recorded eight tackles in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday. With Danny Trevathan missing his third straight game, Kwiatkoski filled in nicely and finished second on the team in tackles. However, he's been inconsistent with his starting opportunities, making him a risky IDP option as long as Trevathan continues to miss time.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Finishes 2017 with 49 tackles

    Kwiatkoski registered a pair of sacks and a forced fumble along with 49 tackles in 11 games in his second season with the Bears. Kwiatkoski became a regular in the Bears' linebacker corps in Week 10 after injuries and suspensions left the Bears thin at the position. After collecting sacks in two straight games, he failed to notch another in any of the last six games. He also failed to exceed three tackles in any of his first four starts, but he finished the season on a high note while averaging 8.67 tackles in the last three games of the year. He's signed for the next two years, but unless he can permanently move into the starting lineup he won't be a reliable IDP.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Sacks quarterback in second straight contest

    Kwiatkoski recorded a sack and three tackles in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions. Although Kwiatkoski has recorded four or fewer tackles in three of the four games he's played this season, he's collected sacks in each of his last two matchups. He's not an elite IDP option at linebacker, but his production in the two games since returning to the lineup makes him an interesting streaming option while he stays hot.

    Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is active for Sunday's tilt against Carolina. Kwiatkoski has sat out the Bears' last four games. Now that he's back, look for Kwiatkoski to return to the starting lineup and bump Christian Jones back to a depth role.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Inactive Monday

    Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is inactive for Monday's game against the Vikings. Kwiatkoski was originally listed as doubtful to play, so him being ruled out Monday isn't a surprise.

    Kwiatkoski (chest) did not practice Saturday and is marked as doubtful for Monday's game against the Vikings, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Kwiatkoski has been battling injuries everywhere he has looked over the past several weeks so his availability for Monday appears bleak at the moment. If Kwiatkoski can't suit up, Christian Jones should be the primary beneficiary.

  • Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Won't return Sunday

Moreover, the seriousness of this injury is unclear, so continue to check back to see if this will be a long-term problem on the Bears' defense.
