Top David Long News

  • Dolphins' David Long: Sitting out team drills

    Long (undisclosed) hasn't been participating at the Dolphins' OTAs, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Head coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that Long had a "tweak" earlier this offseason, which explains why the linebacker hasn't been available for team drills. McDaniel believes that Long is in a "good spot" and is looking forward to getting him out on the practice field when he's ready. Long signed a two-year contract with the Dolphins in March and is expected to operate as a starter at inside linebacker in 2023.

  • Dolphins' David Long: Heading to Miami

    Long is expected to sign a two-year, $11 million deal with the Dolphins, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    Long missed five games last year, and he also missed seven games in 2021, so his durability is a concern. After averaging 6.02 tackles per game two years ago, he improved to 8.08 stops per game during his final year in Tennessee. Although he doesn't have any sacks in his career, he's been credited with 11 passes defensed over the last two years. He should move into a starting inside linebacker position with the Dolphins, and it's reasonable to expect his per-game tackle production to be similar to last year.

  • Titans' David Long: Injury-plagued campaign

    Long (hamstring) finished the 2022 season with 86 tackles, five passes defended and two interceptions across 12 games.

    Long remained a key contributor to Tennessee's defense when he was on the field, as he racked up at least eight tackles in seven of his 12 contests. However, he's now missed at least two games in all four of his seasons in the NFL, and he finished the 2022 campaign on injured reserve. Long will enter free agency after playing out the final season of his rookie contract, and he should draw significant interest in free agency.

  • Titans' David Long: Lands on IR

    Long (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Ben Arthur of reports.

    Long had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after logging DNPs at practice throughout the week. His absence will certainly be a blow to the team's linebacker corps, if not the team's defense as a whole. Monty Rice and Joe Jones will likely step into bigger roles, as Long will now be forced to miss at least the next four weeks, with a Week 18 return being the soonest he may take the field again.

  • Titans' David Long: Won't play Sunday

    Long (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Long left the team's Week 13 loss to Philadelphia due to a hamstring issue and was unable to practice to start Week 14 prep, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out. In Long's absence, Joe Schobert and Monty Rice are candidates for increased roles next to Dylan Cole.

  • Titans' David Long: Logs DNP

    Long (hamstring) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Long left Sunday's loss to the Eagles early with the injury, and he's apparently still not recovered. Because Long is an integral part of the Titans' linebacker corps, any absences for him would certainly be detrimental to the team's defense. He'll work to be ready Week 14 against the Jaguars.

  • Titans' David Long: Leaves with injury

    Long (hamstring) has exited Sunday's game against the Eagles, Paul Kuharsky of reports.

    Long's absence will certainly have a negative impact on the team's defense. He'll hope to return, but for now Joe Schobert and Monty Rice will be candidates to see extra opportunities at linebacker.

  • Titans' David Long: Makes nine stops

    Long recorded nine total tackles and three tackles for loss in Thursday's 27-17 win over the Packers.

    Long played every defensive snap for the seventh time in 10 games this season. He led the Titans with nine tackles, and he stuffed both Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon behind the line of scrimmage on a few occasions. With the performance, Long now has a career-high 79 tackles while also chipping in four passes defended and two interceptions.

  • Titans' David Long: Upgrades to full activity Tuesday

    Long (neck) practiced fully Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Long sustained a stinger during the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup versus the Broncos, but he's since returned to Tuesday's session without limitations. The 26-year-old has amassed 71 tackles, four passes defensed and two interceptions across the Titans' first nine games in 2022, and he should once again provide the team's defense with an impactful presence in Thursday night's showdown against the Packers.

  • Titans' David Long: Limited at estimated practice

    Long (neck) is listed as limited on Tennessee's estimated practice report for Monday, Turron Davenport of reports.

    Long suffered a stinger in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Week 10 win over the Broncos, so it's not a surprise that he was estimated to be a limited practice participant one day later. Tennessee has a short turnaround with a Thursday night clash with Green Bay up next, thus Long may be hard-pressed to recover in time for that contest if his injury is more than minor.

  • Titans' David Long: Exits with injury

    Long is questionable to return after suffering a stinger during Sunday's game against the Broncos, Turron Davenport of reports.

    While the nature of Long's injury is still unclear, he'll likely have a tough time returning before the end of this contest. As a result, expect fellow inside linebacker Dylan Cole to play a bigger role for the remainder of the fourth quarter.
