  • Commanders' David Mayo: Gets upgraded

    Mayo (hamstring) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report. Mayo hasn't played since Week 8 against the Colts due to the injury, but it appears he'll finally return Sunday against Atlanta. The expected availability of the veteran starting linebacker should be good news for the Commanders' defense when it faces the Falcons for Week 12.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Won't be active Monday night

    Mayo (hamstring) is listed as out for Monday's game at Philadelphia, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Mayo will miss his second consecutive game as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Active for Week 3

    Mayo (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Mayo popped up on the injury report Friday as a limited participant due to an ankle issue, but he appears to be fine heading into Week 3. After not garnering any defensive snaps in the season opener, the veteran linebacker saw 16 plays in Week 2, but he's yet to record a tackle.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Questionable for Sunday

    Mayo (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Mayo wasn't on the injury report Wednesday or Thursday, so it's concerning to see him listed as questionable. However, he's played mostly on special teams over the first two games of the season, so his potential absence shouldn't impact the Commanders defense.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Re-signs with Washington

    The Commanders re-signed Mayo on Thursday. Mayo initially made the team's 53-man roster but was released a day later. However, he returns to the organization on a standard deal after the Commanders opened up a few roster spots by placing a number of players on IR. Mayo recorded 28 tackles while playing primarily on special teams during his first season with Washington last year.

  • David Mayo: Cut by Washington

    Mayo was released by the Commanders on Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Mayo recorded 28 tackles while playing primarily on special teams (287 of his 452 total snaps) during his lone season with Washington last year. Therefore, this move comes as somewhat of a surprise given that Washington will subsequently be left with just three healthy linebackers on the team's current 53-man roster (Cole Holcomb, Milo Eifler and Jamin Davis). Since the Commanders will almost certainly look to build out this position group in the coming days, it's possible that Mayo could still come back on a new deal with the team if he fails to secure a contract elsewhere heading into the regular season.

The seventh-year pro will likely fill a similar reserve role again next season.

Josina Anderson of USA Today reports that Mayo tested positive for the virus, bringing the total number of Washington players on the COVID list to nine.

    The Giants released Mayo on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Mayo suited up in 11 games for the Giants in 2020, averaging 17.5 defensive snaps per contest and totaling 29 tackles.

  • Giants' David Mayo: Questionable with knee injury

    Mayo (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Seattle, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Mayo missed this season's first five games with a knee injury, but it's unclear if the injury bothering him now is related to that earlier absence. Promising rookie seventh-round pick Tae Crowder would likely see an uptick in playing time if Mayo's out or limited Sunday.

  • Giants' David Mayo: Shifts to IR

    The Giants placed Mayo (knee) on injured reserve Sunday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Mayo suffered a torn meniscus during training camp, so this transaction was an expected move by the club. The veteran will be a tough loss to begin the season, as he recorded 82 tackles and two sacks in 16 games (13 starts) for the Giants last season. Mayo is now ruled out for the first eight weeks of the season at least, so in his stead, look for Tae Crowder to see a slight uptick in snaps at inside linebacker.

  • Giants' David Mayo: Produces as starter

    Mayo made nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Vikings. Mayo was called upon to start due to a slew of injuries and he performed well. With Tae Davis and Alec Ogletree both healthy, however, Mayo will likely be pushed back into a reserve role.

  • Giants' David Mayo: Records eight tackles in win

    Mayo logged eight total tackles (four solo) in Sunday's win over Washington. Mayo was on the field for 35 of 51 possible defensive snaps (69 percent) in Sunday's contest. The 26-year-old didn't see the field at all in the season's first two games and was present for just eight snaps in Week 3. In the future, Mayo could see a similar role to the one he played Sunday with fellow inside linebacker Ryan Connelly (knee) landing on injured reserve Monday.

  • Panthers' David Mayo: Recovering from hernia surgery

    Mayo underwent sports hernia surgery after the season and is expected to make a full recovery ahead of training camp, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Mayo never missed a game in 2018, but his name popped up on the injury report prior to Week 10 with an unspecified groin issue. Sports hernia surgeries typically don't carry timetables of more than two months, so Mayo may even be ready for OTAs. He'll become an unrestricted free agent in March, but both he and the Panthers will likely have some interest in a reunion.
