  • Jaguars' Shaquill Griffin: Added to reserve/COVID-19 list

    Griffin (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Griffin is now out for Sunday's game against the Patriots since he'll be unable to return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart. His absence will be a blow to the Jaguars' defense, as he's racked up 45 total tackles and six passes defended across 13 games this season. With Rudy Ford (undisclosed) also on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Tre Herndon and Nevin Lawson are candidates to see an increased role.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Won't receive franchise tag

    The Seahawks won't use the franchise tag on Griffin for the 2021 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Griffin missed four games in 2020 due to a hamstring injury, but he served as the Seahawks' clear No. 1 cornerback when healthy. Over 12 games, he allowed 644 yards (7.4 yards per target) and six touchdowns in coverage, adding 63 tackles, 12 pass breakups and three interceptions. The Seahawks will actively try to match any offers Griffin receives on the free-agent market.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Puts together solid campaign

    Griffin posted 63 tackles, 12 pass breakups and three interceptions over 12 games during the 2020 season. Griffin missed four games with a hamstring injury, but he started the other 12 games at left cornerback. A pending free agent, Griffin had a lot to prove this season, and he finished with decent numbers. The 2017 third-round pick allowed 644 yards (11.9 yards per target) and six touchdowns in coverage this season, rounding out to a 93.3 passer rating when targeted. The 25-year-old added a career-high three picks, and this was the third time in four seasons that he recorded double-digit pass breakups. While it wasn't the breakout season that many hoped for, Griffin proved to be a formidable cornerback and likely is in the team's plans moving forward.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Should be available Week 12

    Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday he expects Griffin (hamstring) to play against the Eagles in Week 12, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Griffin's hamstring injury has sidelined him for four straight games, but he'll get a few extra days to rest up ahead of a Nov. 30 contest in Philadelphia. It sounds like the starting cornerback is on track to return versus the Eagles barring any setbacks, but his health will nonetheless be worth keeping a close eye on.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Listed as DNP

    Griffin (hamstring/concussion) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. While Griffin is still listed with a concussion, coach Pete Carroll said last week that he cleared the league's five-step protocol, so this is either a formality or Griffin suffered a setback. Regardless, he'll need to get on the practice field by Wednesday to have a chance to suit up in Thursday's matchup against the Cardinals. Quinton Dunbar (knee) also was a DNP on Monday, so the Seahawks are at risk of being without their top two cornerbacks once again.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Set to sit Sunday

    Griffin (hamstring/concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Bills, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Griffin is still in the league's five-step concussion protocol, although he's apparently close to clearing it. The larger issue is his hamstring injury, which is what kept him off the practice field all week. Regardless, he'll miss a second straight game, opening the door for Tre Flowers to get the start at right cornerback while Quinton Dunbar bumps to the left cornerback position.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Still not practicing

    Griffin (hamstring/concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Griffin is expected to be cleared from the league's five-step concussion protocol in the next couple of days, and the hamstring injury is what's keeping him out of practice. Coach Pete Carroll was pessimistic about Griffin's chances to play this week, saying that the fourth-year cornerback would be re-evaluated at the end of the week. If he can't go Sunday against the Bills, Tre Flowers is expected to start at right cornerback while Quinton Dunbar bumps to the left cornerback position.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Griffin (concussion/hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Griffin departed this past Sunday's loss to the Cardinals with a concussion, and he's dealing with a hamstring injury as well. Both issues will be tough to recover from in time for the Week 8 matchup against San Francisco, but he'll have a chance to play if he can return to practice by Friday. Tre Flowers is expected to start at cornerback opposite Quinton Dunbar if Griffin can't go.

Griffin sat out Week 15 after suffering a hamstring injury sometime last week. With the talented cornerback apparently heading toward a game-time call, keep an eye on his status as the coming week of practice unfolds.

  • Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Dealing with hamstring injury

    Griffin (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Griffin didn't seem bothered by this issue during this past Sunday's loss to the Rams, as he played every defensive snap and recorded four tackles (two solo). However, it's concerning heading into Sunday's game against the Panthers as the Seahawks look to keep pace in the NFC West. Griffin's work in coverage has improved drastically this year; he's allowed just 6.2 yards per target while adding 13 pass breakups. If he's unable to play in Week 15, Tre Flowers will be the undisputed No. 1 corner while Akeem King and Ryan Neal would both see boosts in usage.
