  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Would have played moving forward

    Ogbah (triceps) was expected to be cleared to play if the Dolphins advanced in the postseason, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. As the Dolphins players cleared out their lockers Monday, Ogbah said that the plan was for him to return from his triceps injury in the AFC divisional round if the the team had beaten Buffalo on Sunday. It appears as if the defensive end should have no issue being ready to go for the start of training camp this summer. Ogbah appeared in nine games in 2022, recording 11 tackles, including one sack.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Done for season

    Miami placed Ogbah (triceps) on injured reserve Monday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Ben Stille may be forced into a regular role with Ogbah out.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Suffers season-ending injury

    Ogbah sustained a torn triceps during Sunday's win over the Browns and will require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Ogbah exited Sunday's matchup in the first half and will be unavailable for the Dolphins down the stretch. The 29-year-old appeared in eight games for Miami this year and logged 11 tackles (seven solo), including a sack. Zach Sieler is a candidate to see increased playing time over the second half of the season.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Will not return

    Ogbah (elbow) will not return Sunday against the Browns. Ogbah left the game in the first half, but he was not originally ruled out. In his absence, Zach Sieler will likely provide depth behind the starters on the edge, Raekwon Davis and Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Exits with injury Sunday

    Ogbah (elbow) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns. Ogbah previously missed one game with a back issue Week 9, but he appears to have picked up a new elbow injury Sunday. With the veteran out for the time being, expect Zach Sieler to step up into a bigger role alongside starting defensive linemen Raekwon Davis and Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Suiting up in Detroit

    Ogbah (back) is active Week 8 against the Lions. The Dolphins only have five active defensive linemen for their 3-4 scheme, suggesting Ogbah wasn't in much danger of missing this practice despite a questionable tag. The veteran hasn't recorded a sack since Week 1, however, which would put him on pace for a career low in that department.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Game-time decision Sunday

    Ogbah (back) will be a game-time decision to play Sunday versus the Steelers, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Ogbah suffered a back injury in Week 6 against the Vikings and is questionable to play on Sunday Night Football this week. If he can't go, Zach Sieler (hand) could get some extra run, but the Dolphins may have to elevate an extra body from their practice unit.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Questionable to return

    Ogbah (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings. Ogbah temporarily went to the Dolphins' locker room before returning to the team's sideline, according to Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald. With the 28-year-old out for the time being, expect Zach Sieler to see increased usage opposite Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Secures payday from Dolphins

    Ogbah and Miami have agreed to terms on a four-year, $65 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Ogbah has solidified himself as one of Miami's defensive cornerstones, having served as the team's sack leader in back-to-back seasons. Retaining the 28-year-old defensive end is a notable boost for the Dolphins' defensive prospects in the 2022 campaign, and for the foreseeable future. For Ogbah's part, he now secures the largest contract of his career, which includes $32 million guaranteed.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Huge day in Week 9 win

    Ogbah had four tackles (two solo), 2.5 sacks and one pass breakup during Sunday's 17-9 win over the Texans. Ogbah now has five sacks through nine contests. The 28-year-old's production hasn't necessarily come on a consistent basis, but he possesses enough big-game potential to warrant fantasy consideration in deep IDP formats. Come Thursday, Ogbah will face the difficult task of containing Lamar Jackson and Baltimore's offense.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Brings down Wentz in loss

    Ogbah notched four tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Colts. Ogbah has 1.5 sacks through the first four weeks of the season, so he'll need to ramp up his pace for any chance of matching last season's nine-sack total. It will be difficult to rely on Ogbah for fantasy purposes Week 5, as the Buccaneers' offensive front should have a clear advantage over Miami's pass rush.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Modest production vs. Bills

    Ogbah notched four tackles (one solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills. Ogbah has just seven total tackles, one pass breakup and a half-sack through the first two weeks of the 2021 campaign. The 27-year-old has never been a reliable weekly starter in IDP fantasy formats, but given that he had a career-high nine sacks last season, it's somewhat disappointing to see him get off to a slow start this year. Ogbah will look to get right in Week 3 versus a Raiders squad that could have Nathan Peterman under center if Derek Carr (ankle) can't go.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Manages nine sacks

    Ogbah had 43 tackles (26 solo), nine sacks, five defended passes and three forced fumbles across 16 games in 2020. Ogbah notched a new career-high in terms of snaps during his inaugural season with the Dolphins, providing exactly the sort of pressure off the edge that the team hoped for when he was signed to a two-year, $15 million contract last March. Though Ogbah's deal includes a potential out this offseason, Miami could certainly opt to keep him in house for 2021 given the quality of his play in 2020.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Snaps sack drought

    Ogbah posted three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 22-12 win over the Patriots. Ogbah failed to mark a sack in four straight games, but he came up big in the fourth quarter Sunday, sacking Cam Newton on fourth down to clinch the Dolphins' ninth win and force the Patriots out of playoff contention. The fifth-year defensive end sports a career-high nine sacks this year (ninth in the league).

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Two sacks Sunday

    Ogbah recorded five tackles (three solo) and two sacks across 53 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets. Ogbah was a menace on the field Sunday, including a sack that resulted in a 28-yard loss. He now has five sacks on the year including four in the past three games. He is only playing in around 65 percent of the defensive snaps this season but could see an uptick if his high level of play continues.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Brings down Wilson in loss

    Ogbah had five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Seahawks. Ogbah had logged back-to-back games with a half-sack prior to Sunday's contest, bringing his total for the season to two sacks through four games. He'll look to keep up his momentum against a San Francisco squad that could get Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) back in the lineup Week 5.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Cleared from injury

    Ogbah (pectoral) said Thursday that he's been cleared to resume workouts, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Ogbah missed the final six games of the 2019 regular season with Kansas City due to a torn pectoral injury he suffered Week 10. The 26-year-old has been a consistent threat in the pass rush since coming into the league in 2016, earning 18 sacks over 50 career games. Now healthy, he's one of a few offseason additions for the Dolphins in a defensive overhaul heading into 2020.

  • Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Moves to IR

    Ogbah (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports. The 26-year-old was already declared out for the season after tearing his right pectoral muscle last week against the Titans, so the move is simply procedural. Ogbah underwent surgery to address the injury. Gehrig Dieter was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

  • Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Waiting for MRI confirmation

    The Chiefs are waiting for the MRI results to confirm Ogbah tore his right pectoral muscle, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. If this injury is confirmed, Ogbah will be ruled out for the season. Houston's J.J. Watt suffered the same injury two weeks ago and is expected to be ready for the 2020 season, so the Chiefs hope Ogbah can receive a similar prognosis. Frank Clark, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Alex Okafor (ankle) are the team's remaining defensive ends. Ogbah tied his career high with 5.5 sacks through 10 games.

    Ogbah had three solo tackles, a sack and two passes defensed in Thursday's 30-6 win over the Broncos. The 25-year-old played 43 of 67 defensive snaps and continues to see a relatively consistent workload behind starting DEs Frank Clark and Alex Okafor.
