Top Justin Zimmer News

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Out for season

    Zimmer (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday and will miss the remainder of the season.

    Zimmer's knee injury will require season-ending surgery. This injury will hurt Buffalo's defensive line depth as the backup defensive tackle normally accounted for around 40 percent of defensive snaps. Star Lotulelei and Harrison Phillips and perhaps Vernon Butler will have to step into a bigger role in Zimmer's absence.

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Won't play Sunday

    Zimmer (foot) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Dolphins.

    Zimmer was able to log a full practice Friday, but he will still be held out of Sunday's matchup with Miami. Harrison Phillips will likely see an uptick in snaps during Zimmer's absence.

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Gets questionable tag

    Zimmer (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    Zimmer upped his workload to full Friday after being limited both Wednesday and Thursday, so we'd imagine the depth defensive lineman is on the better side of questionable. Zimmer isn't much of an IDP factor with just eight tackles and a sack through six games, but he's a key depth guy for one of the league's better defenses, playing at least 37 percent of the defensive snaps in all six games to date.

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Moves up from practice squad

    The Bills promoted Zimmer from their practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Buffalo is expected to make defensive linemen Trent Murphy and Harrison Phillips healthy inactives for the Week 6 contest, so Zimmer and Bryan Cox were summoned on short notice to provide extra depth along the defensive front. Zimmer previously suited up for the Bills in the season-opening win over the Jets, logging four tackles across 16 defensive snaps.

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Promoted from practice squad

    Zimmer was elevated from the Bills' practice squad Saturday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

    Vernon Butler (hamstring) could miss the season opener against the Jets, so Zimmer will be brought up to add depth. Zimmer played just two games for the Browns last year and recorded five tackles.

  • Bills' Justin Zimmer: Joins Buffalo

    Zimmer (undisclosed) signed with the Bills on Sunday, Maddy Glab of the team's official site reports.

    Zimmer was waived with a non-football injury designation by the Browns in early August, but he's recovered and is ready to add depth with a playoff contender. The 27-year-old geared up in two games last year and recorded five tackles. The Bills have a stout defensive front, though, so Zimmer has an uphill battle to make the final roster.

  • Justin Zimmer: Cut by Cleveland

    Zimmer (undisclosed) has been waived by the Browns with a non-football injury designation, Dan Labbe of reports.

    The defensive tackle appeared in two games with the Browns last season, logging five tackles in the process. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder will now look to secure a depth role along another team's defensive line.

  • Browns' Justin Zimmer: Inks deal with Browns

    Zimmer signed with the Browns on Tuesday.

    Zimmer spent December of 2018 with the Browns as well but didn't draw into a game. The 27-year-old will look for more opportunities this time around, but he'll mainly work as a reserve.

  • Falcons' Justin Zimmer: Joins active roster

    The Falcons promoted Zimmer to the active roster Tuesday, Matthew Tabeek of the Falcons' official site reports.

    The 26-year-old defensive tackle joined Atlanta's practice squad in early October after he was waived from the active roster. He will take the roster spot of Keith Tandy and will provide depth to Atlanta's defensive line.

  • Justin Zimmer: Signs with Falcons' practice squad

    Zimmer joined Atlanta's practice squad Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports.

    The third-year man will get another shot to earn his way onto the 53-man roster after being waived in favor of Michael Bennett earlier this week. With Grady Jarrett (ankle) and Takkarist McKinley (groin) being injured and serving as key components of Atlanta's defensive line, the Falcons will add some depth with Zimmer, a player who made a positive impression during the preseason with eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.

  • Justin Zimmer: Waived by Atlanta

    Zimmer was waived by the Falcons on Tuesday.

    Zimmer became an expendable piece following the team's decision to bring in Michael Bennett. Zimmer had struggled to carve out a distinctive role since signing with the team back in April.
