  • Ravens' L.J. Fort: Suffers torn ACL

    Fort suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's preseason contest against the Panthers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. While it was a clean tear, Fort's season will still likely be over after he undergoes surgery. The nine-year veteran notched a career-high 54 tackles in 14 games with the Ravens last year. In his absence, Malik Harrison and Chris Board will compete for the backup linebacker spot behind Patrick Queen.

  • Steelers' L.J. Fort: Team-leading eight tackles in win

    Fort recorded eight tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati. The unrestricted free agent finishes the 2018 season with 48 tackles -- including one sack -- and one fumble recovery in 15 games. The 48 tackles exceeded his career total of 35 tackles over three seasons. He made $1.3 million over the past two seasons with Pittsburgh and could be a bargain if he returns to back up Vince Williams and Jon Bostic at inside linebacker in 2019.

  • Steelers' L.J. Fort: Practices in full

    Fort (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Fort has not seen the field since Week 5 due to a lingering ankle injury, but appears to be nearing a full recovery. If the rotational linebacker is able to continue practicing without limitations as the week continues, he should be expected to suit up for Sunday's game against the Browns.

  • Steelers' L.J. Fort: Sits out Wednesday's practice

    Fort was held out of Wednesday's practice with an apparent ankle injury, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. Fort allegedly sustained the ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Falcons. His absence during Wednesday's session raises real concerns regarding his status for Sunday. More certainty pertaining to his availability should become apparent as Sunday inches closer. If he can't play, Matthew Thomas could be asked to play a bigger role for the divisional tilt.

  • Steelers' L.J. Fort: Scores first career touchdown

    Fort totaled six tackles (all solo) including a sack and recovered a fumble for a touchdown during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons. With Vince Williams (hamstring) inactive, the seldom-used Fort took advantage of an increase in playing time and recorded his most tackles in a game since October 2012. The sack was his first of the season, and his recovery of Matt Ryan's fumble in the end zone was his first career touchdown. If Williams can't go in Week 6, Fort will get another opportunity when they visit the Bengals, whom they have beaten the last five meetings.

  • L.J. Fort: Let go by Pittsburgh

    Fort was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

The organization evidently didn't view him as a key part of that unit, so he was let go to create room on the 53-man roster for fellow linebacker Steven Johnson.
