Top J.P. Holtz News

  • Saints' J.P. Holtz: Inks deal with New Orleans

    Holtz signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    After posting seven catches for 91 yards in 2019, Holtz failed to catch a pass in 2020 or 2021. If he makes the initial 53-man roster, the undrafted tight end out of Pittsburgh will likely serve primarily as a blocker once again in 2022.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Posts no stats in 2021

    Holtz failed to see a target in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season without recording a catch.

    After posting seven catches for 91 yards in 2019, Holtz failed to catch a pass in 2020 or 2021. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, and unless his situation drastically changes, he won't likely be selected in most 2022 fantasy drafts.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Ready for Week 18

    Holtz (personal) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

    The tight end was away from the team Week 17 while tending to a personal matter. Now back at the practice facility, Holtz is slated to serve as a depth option at tight end in Sunday's finale against the Vikings.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Out Sunday

    Holtz (personal) is inactive Sunday against the Giants.

    Holtz was considered doubtful after not being with the team Thursday or Friday due to the personal matter. As he mainly contributes on special teams, Holtz' absence shouldn't impact the Bears' game plan when they host the Giants on Sunday.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Holtz (personal) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Holtz missed practice Thursday and Friday due to a personal matter, and he'll likely be held out in Week 17. The 28-year-old has played mainly on special teams this year, so his status shouldn't significantly impact Chicago's offensive plans.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Won't play in primetime

    Holtz (concussion) won't play Monday against the Steelers.

    Holtz was never able to practice this week after entering the concussion protocol during Sunday's game. With the Bears entering a bye for Week 10, Holtz will try to recover and clear protocols for Week 11 against Baltimore.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Misses practice Friday

    Holtz (concussion) did not practice Friday.

    Holtz entered concussion protocol on Sunday and has yet to be cleared. He has an extra day to prepare since the Bears don't play until Monday, but time is running out. If Holtz is unable to get cleared in time, it's likely Jesper Horsted would pick up some extra snaps.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Enters concussion protocol

    Holtz is in the concussion protocol, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Holtz will have an extra day to clear the protocol since the Bears play on Monday night in Week 9 against the Steelers. Jesper Horsted would likely absorb the extra snaps if the 28-year-old needs to miss time.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Ready for Week 7

    Holtz (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Holtz logged a full practice Friday, which set him up to return from a two-game absence. He should serve primarily on special teams, even with Jimmy Graham (illness) sidelined.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Questionable after full practice

    Holtz (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

    Holtz has missed the past two games due to this quad injury, but his practice participation this week was encouraging, as he upgraded to full participation Friday following a pair of limited sessions. With Jimmy Graham on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Holtz or Jesper Horsted will have the opportunity to work as Chicago's third-string tight end behind Cole Kmet and Jesse James.

  • Bears' J.P. Holtz: Returns to practice

    Holtz (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Holtz has missed each of the last two weeks with the injury. It would be reassuring to see him get a full practice in prior to the team's matchup Sunday against Tampa Bay, though his limited participation is a positive step. Holtz has yet to record a catch in four games this season.
