  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Lands on IR

    Washington has placed Seals-Jones (concussion) on injured reserve.

    No surprise here, as Seals-Jones was already ruled out for Washington's regular-season finale. With the team not in the playoff picture, his 2021 campaign has officially come to an end. He will end the year with 30 receptions for 271 yards and two touchdowns. The 26-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Out Week 18, could be free agent

    Seals-Jones (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Keim of reports.

    Seals-Jones made some noise earlier in the season when Logan Thomas missed time with a hamstring injury, but Washington later turned to a timeshare between RSJ and rookie John Bates after Thomas suffered a season-ending ACL tear. Bates now figures to close out the season in a three-down role, though he can't match Thomas or Seals-Jones when it comes to speed/ athleticism. In any case, Seals-Jones finishes the year with a 30-271-2 receiving line on 49 targets, and he's now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent right around the time of his 27th birthday in mid-March.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Doesn't practice again Thursday

    Seals-Jones (concussion) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Seals-Jones entered the concussion protocol this past Sunday versus the Eagles after he toppled into a cameraman while attempting to catch a Taylor Heinicke pass along the right side of the end zone. The tight end required a backboard to get off the field, and his lack of practice reps so far this week has him trending in the wrong direction ahead of a Week 18 road game against the Giants. Friday's practice report ultimately could decide Seals-jones' fate for that contest. With Sammis Reyes (hamstring) logging a limited session Thursday, John Bates is the only healthy TE on Washington's active roster.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Not practicing

    Seals-Jones (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Even before Seals-Jones exited last week's loss to the Eagles when he was carted off the field following a sideline collision with a cameraman, John Bates had been taking on more of Washington's tight-end snaps over the past few games. Bates should have a three-down role Week 18 against the Giants if Seals-Jones isn't able to play.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Enters concussion protocol

    Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Seals-Jones has entered the concussion protocol, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Seals-Jones was taken off the field on a backboard during Sunday's loss to the Eagles and will have several steps to clear if he hopes to return for Sunday's Week 18 matchup against the Giants. John Bates and Sammis Reyes should see increased work against the Giants if Seals-Jones is unavailable.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Exits Sunday's game

    Seals-Jones was forced out of Sunday's game against the Eagles with a neck injury.

    Prior to his exit from the contest, Seals-Jones -- who will not return to action Sunday -- caught one of his two targets for eight yards. In his absence, John Bates is slated to head Washington's Week 17 tight end corps.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Negative yardage in huge loss

    Seals-Jones caught his lone target for negative-four yards in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas.

    Seals-Jones may have caught the worst of this one-sided affair, as his lone target went backwards and he didn't get another touch for the remainder of the contest. Backup tight end John Bates flashed his talent in garbage time (2-45-1), so we could see some of RSJ's targets go his way on a fluid depth chart. Most fantasy managers won't bother with Seals-Jones heading into a Week 17 matchup against the Eagles.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Co-leads team in targets

    Seals-Jones (illness) brought in four of seven targets for 29 yards in Washington's 27-17 loss to the Eagles on Tuesday night.

    The veteran tight end co-led the team in targets alongside Antonio Gibson and was also second in receptions to his teammate. Seals-Jones is in possession of the top tight end job the rest of the way with Logan Thomas (knee) on injured reserve, so he'll have some utility in a Week 16 road matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night, especially if Taylor Heinicke is able to clear COVID-19 protocols in time for that contest.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Gets questionable tag for Week 15

    Seals-Jones (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Eagles.

    A non-COVID-19-related illness kept Seals-Jones from practicing Sunday, but he returned to the field as a full participant Monday. Though he'll still carry a designation into the Week 15 contest, Seals-Jones' ability to put in a full practice bodes well for his chances of gaining clearance for Tuesday's game. If active, Seals-Jones presumably will start at tight end, but he'll likely have to split work at tight end with rookie John Bates, who has made a push for more playing time in the second half of the season.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Suiting up Tuesday

    Seals-Jones (illness) is listed as active Tuesday at Philadelphia.

    Seals-Jones picked up a non-COVID-19 illness over the weekend, but the fact this contest was pushed back allowed the tight end to make himself available for Week 15 action. With Logan Thomas (knee) on injured reserve, Seals-Jones will continue to serve as the No. 1 TE for Washington, while John Bates and Alex Armah are the other available options at the position. Unfortunately for Seals-Jones, he doesn't have much familiarity with the team's spot starter at QB, Garrett Gilbert, who is stepping in for Taylor Heinicke (reserve/COVID-19) and Kyle Allen (reserve/COVID-19).

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Misses practice with illness

    Seals-Jones didn't participate in Sunday's practice due to an illness, making his status uncertain for Tuesday's game against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Washington hasn't placed Seals-Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but his situation will bear watching over the next two days with 13 members of the Football Team roster still residing on the list as of Sunday. John Bates worked with the first-team offense at Friday's practice and would be in line to start at tight end if Seals-Jones can't gain clearance for Tuesday's game. Washington would likely elevate fullback Alex Armah from the practice squad to provide depth at the position behind Bates in that scenario.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Washington-Eagles moved to Tuesday

    Seals-Jones and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

    Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Almost invisible

    Seals-Jones caught one pass for eight yards on four targets against Dallas on Sunday.

    Seals-Jones and the Washington passing game in general really struggled Sunday, in large part because the team couldn't even slightly slow the Dallas pass rush. Quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen both fell apart in this one, making it difficult to judge Seals-Jones for his disappointing box score. If Washington continues to struggle with its pass blocking, then Seals-Jones could have a tough time improving on his numbers against Philadelphia in Week 15.

  • Football Team's Ricky Seals-Jones: Good to go, replacing Thomas

    Seals-Jones (hip) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Seals-Jones comes back from a three-game absence right after fellow tight end Logan Thomas suffered a season-ending knee injury. During his first stint replacing Thomas, the 26-year-old took on an every-down role and saw four or more targets in six straight games, averaging 3.7 catches for 35.2 yards on 5.7 targets despite leaving the sixth game in the first half with a hip injury. A similar workload down the stretch would keep Seals-Jones on the radar in most fantasy leagues, but it is possible rookie John Bates takes on a little more work this time around, having played more than half the offensive snaps in four straight games entering Sunday.
