Jake Funk: Cut from practice squad
The Dolphins cut Funk from the practice squad Saturday.
Funk spent a little over a month in Miami after he was cut by the Colts earlier in the season. The 2021 seventh-round pick of the Rams is no longer needed with the Dolphins' backfield returning to full health. Funk has four career carries for 15 yards.... See More ... See Less
Jake Funk: Joins Dolphins' practice squad
Miami is signing Funk to the practice squad Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Funk, who was cut by the Colts on Saturday and cleared waivers Monday, now gets a chance to operate as an emergency reserve option for a Dolphins squad that may be without rookie sensation De'Von Achane (knee) for multiple weeks. He scored through the air while handling three total touches Week 1, but contributed exclusively on special teams from Weeks 2 to 4.... See More ... See Less
Jake Funk: Let go by Colts
Funk was waived by the Colts on Saturday.
The big news in the NFL on Saturday was Indianapolis signing Jonathan Taylor (ankle) to an extension and activating him from the reserve/PUP list, which necessitated a corresponding move to open a roster spot. Funk was the player the Colts chose to part ways with after the four-year vet was limited to special-teams work each of the past three weeks. Funk did get 12 offensive snaps against Jacksonville in Week 1, and he rushed twice for 10 yards while making one reception for 12 yards. He could end up on Indianapolis' practice squad if he clears waivers.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Jake Funk: Limited to special teams
Funk did not have a carry or target in Sunday's win at Houston. He didn't play a snap on offense and was limited to five snaps on special teams.
Funk had two carries and a reception in Week 1, but he moved to a deep reserve role with the return of Zack Moss from a broken arm. Funk may permanently move to the practice squad if Jonathan Taylor (ankle) returns from the PUP list in Week 5.... See More ... See Less
Jake Funk: Back to practice squad
Funk reverted to Indianapolis' practice squad Monday.
Funk is back on the practice squad after carrying the ball twice for 12 yards and catching his only target for 12 yards during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, with most of those touches coming in the second half after Evan Hull (knee) got hurt. If Hull's out for an extended time, Funk could find himself back on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Jake Funk: Joins 53-man roster
Indianapolis signed Funk to its active roster Tuesday ahead of Sunday's game at Houston.
The move comes in correspondence with placing fifth-round rookie Evan Hull (knee) on the injured reserve list. Presumed starter Zack Moss is dealing with a forearm injury, and change-of-pace man Deon Jackson has demonstrated a tendency to fumble the ball away, so Funk could very well be involved as early as Week 2....

Colts' Jake Funk: Gets work as third RB
Funk had two carries for 10 yards and one reception for 12 yards on his only target in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.
Funk, who was elevated from the Colts' practice squad Saturday, got playing time in the second half with Evan Hull suffering a knee injury and Deon Jackson struggling (two fumbles). Funk could have a larger role in Week 2 against the Texans if Zack Moss (arm) remains sidelined, Hull can't return and Jackson's role is reduced due to his poor outing. Funk is more likely to return to a limited depth role, especially if Moss is active.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Jake Funk: Joins active roster
Funk was elevated from the Colts' practice squad Saturday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
With Zack Moss (arm) downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Funk will provide some depth for an already shaky running back group. The third-year pro saw action in six contests last season, but exclusively on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Jake Funk: Joins Colts' practice squad
Funk signed with the Colts' practice squad Wednesday.
Funk is one of two running backs joining Indianapolis' practice squad, along with Jason Huntley. If Zack Moss (arm) ends up joining Jonathan Taylor (ankle) on the sidelines come Week 1, one of Funk or Huntley could be elevated for the regular-season opener against Jacksonville.... See More ...

Jake Funk: Waived by Colts
The Colts waived Funk on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Per Pelissero, the Colts hope to bring back Funk as a member of their practice squad if he clears waivers. The 2021 seventh-rounder spent time with both Indy and the Rams last season, but he didn't log a regular-season carry.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Jake Funk: Scores another preseason TD
Funk had five carries for 18 yards, including a four-yard touchdown, in Saturday's preseason win over Chicago.
Funk scored a rushing touchdown for a second consecutive preseason game, but he's still unlikely to make the Week 1 roster. However, with Jonathan Taylor and Zack Moss out due to injury, anything is possible.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Jake Funk: Nine touches in preseason opener
Funk had seven carries for 13 yards, including a one-yard touchdown, and two receptions for 10 yards in Saturday's preseason loss at Buffalo.
Funk was the third running back to get a carry in the game, which may say more about Indy's running back depth than his chances to make the team. With Jonathan Taylor and Zack Moss out due to injury, Funk may see a lot of work during the preseason. However, he may not make the final roster if Taylor returns to action.... See More ... See Less

Jake Funk: Let go Tuesday
Funk was cut from the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Funk signed with New Orleans' practice squad Oct. 12, just one day after being cut loose by the Rams. However, it appears his time in New Orleans will be short, as he was originally brought in when Alvin Kamara was dealing with a rib injury. Funk will now work to a find an opportunity elsewhere....

Jake Funk: Headed to New Orleans
Funk signed with the Saints' practice squad Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Funk was waived by the Rams on Tuesday after playing just one offensive snap in the team's crowded running backs corps this season. However, the 2021 seventh-round pick could get a chance to record his first carry of the season as a potential game-day elevation for the Saints, as No. 1 running back Alvin Kamara has been in and out of the lineup with a rib injury this season. Funk also played 74 special-teams snaps over five games in 2022, which could also help his cause for a promotion to the active roster.... See More ... See Less
