  • Seahawks' Robert Nkemdiche: Signed to active roster

    Nkemdiche was signed by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Nkemdiche was released in the final wave of camp cuts by Seattle, though he later landed back on the team's practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster for the last two weeks, recording nine total tackles while also shouldering a fairly heavy load along the defensive line. Nkemdiche should continue to serve as a rotational player for the remainder of the season.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Cut by Seahawks

    Nkemdiche (undisclosed) was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

  • Seahawks' Robert Nkemdiche: Out at least a week

    Coach Pete Carroll said Nkemdiche will be out about a week after tweaking something Thursday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Nkemdiche has only played in two games since he notched 4.5 sacks in 10 contests with Arizona in 2018. The 26-year-old suffered a torn ACL in 2019 and wasn't on a roster during the 2020 campaign. He started training camp dealing with a groin injury, but it is unclear if that is what is currently ailing him. If he is unable to go by Week 1, expect Rasheem Green or Darrell Taylor to see increased work at the start of the season.

  • Seahawks' Robert Nkemdiche: Nursing groin injury

    Nkemdiche didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

  • Seahawks' Robert Nkemdiche: Signs with Seattle

    The Seahawks signed Nkemdiche on Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Nkemdiche, who the Cardinals made a first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, has recorded just 4.5 sacks in his career, all of which he recorded in 2018. Since suffering a torn ACL late that season, the 26-year-old has only appeared in two games. Nkemdiche will aim to provide the Seahawks with added defensive tackle depth in 2021.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Suspension lifted

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Handed two-game suspension

    Nkemdiche was suspended two weeks by the NFL on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Waived by Miami

    Nkemdiche was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

    Nkemdiche had just been activated off the PUP list in late October after recovering from a torn ACL suffered late last season, but he logged just 18 total defensvie snaps in two games as a Dolphin. The 2016 first-round pick should foster interest on the market, but Nkemdiche has disappointed with just 4.5 career sacks.

  • Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Returns from PUP list

    Nkemdiche (knee) was activated off the PUP list Monday.

    Nkemdiche ready to go after suffering a torn ACL late last season, and he'll be eligible to play Monday at Pittsburgh, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. The 25-year-old's immediate role isn't clear, but he should slot into the Dolphins' defensive line rotation in some fashion.

  • Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Receives return designation

    Nkemdiche (knee) was designated to return off the PUP list and resumed practicing Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Nkemdiche suffered a torn ACL late last season with the Cardinals and was waived in July before signing with the Dolphins and eventually landing on the PUP list. The team now has 21 days to determine whether to move him to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve for the rest of the year.

  • Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Starts season on reserve/PUP list

    Nkemdiche (knee) was placed on Miami's reserve/PUP list Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

    Nkemdiche's placement on the reserve/PUP list guarantees that he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The former Cardinal is recovering from a torn ACL and working to revitalize his career with the Dolphins.

  • Dolphins' Robert Nkemdiche: Lands in Miami

    Nkemdiche (knee) signed a one-year, $1.16 million contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The Dolphins placed Nkemdiche on the PUP list following the signing. The 2016 first-round pick is coming off a torn ACL, and he's not expected to retake the field until September. After having worn out his welcome in Arizona and being waived, Nkemdiche will now work to earn a second chance in Miami. The Dolphins are in need of talent at the defensive end position -- Jonathan Woodard has only played 128 snaps in his NFL career and is expected to start on the left side -- so Nkemdiche could conceivably carve out a notable role if he looks the part.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Absence extends

    Nkemdiche is not expected to be ready until September as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Nkemdiche will be heading into his ninth month of rehab after having surgery in December to repair a torn ACL, and it's been a tumultuous week for the former first-round pick. First he was officially waived by the Cardinals on Saturday as they cited Nkemdiche as being "out of shape," and now will continue to recover until at least September. Interested teams will surely keep a close eye on his recovery process during the month of August to evaluate his health and work ethic going forward.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Goes through waivers unclaimed

    Nkemdiche (knee) cleared waivers Monday, becoming a free agent in the process, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The Cardinals officially waived Nkemdiche on Saturday with a failed physical designation, per Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. The move followed a comment from coach Kliff Kingsbury, who termed Nkemdiche "not in shape" late last week. Apparently, the Cardinals were disappointed in his rehab from a torn ACL and opted to move on from the 2016 first-round pick. Nkemdiche will be subject to a physical from interested parties, which could hurt potential employment.

  • Robert Nkemdiche: Gets boot from Cards

    The Cardinals released Nkemdiche (knee) on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Nkemdiche was oft-injured in his three campaigns with the Cardinals, which included a torn ACL in Week 14 of last season. Still, the 2016 first-round pick wasn't very productive in 27 career appearances, totaling 44 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two passes defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. The last straw for Nkemdiche may have been a lack of commitment to his current rehab after coach Kliff Kingsbury called the defensive end "not in shape" Friday. Considering his pedigree, it wouldn't surprise if another team takes a chance on Nkemdiche with the hope he can turn it around.

  • Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Not in football shape

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury indicated Friday that Nkemdiche (knee) is not football shape yet, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Nkemdiche is still working through the recovery process from an ACL tear suffered in Week 14 of last season. It sounds like he still has a ways to go, which likely explains his placement on the PUP list to kick off training camp. The Cardinals opted not to pick up the lineman's rookie fifth-year option back in May.

  • Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Placed on preseason PUP list

    Nkemdiche (knee) was placed on the physically unable to perform list Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    It's been a difficult offseason for the 2016 first-round pick. After playing in only 27 of his 48 potential appearances, the Cardinals opted not to pick up Nkemdiche's rookie fifth-year option in May. The edge rusher was then arrested June 6 for speeding and driving on a suspended license -- a legal event that has yet to yield any sort of repercussions while processing through the court systems. Considering Nkemdiche is expected to miss at least some regular-season action while he recovers from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 14 last year, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 24-year-old placed on the regular-season PUP list, but that roster decision likely won't come for a number of weeks.

  • Cardinals' Robert Nkemdiche: Arrested for traffic violation

    Nkemdiche (knee) was arrested in Scottsdale, AZ, on June 6 for speeding and driving on a suspended license, Clayton Klapper of ABC 15 Arizona reports.

    Nkemdiche was reportedly pulled over for going 75 mph in a 45 mph zone and, during the stop, the attending officer discovered Nkemdiche had a warrant issued for his arrest for driving on a suspended license and failing to appear for a court hearing. The Cardinals are aware of the incident but no discipline will likely come until the legal system has run its course.
