Top Eli Ankou News

  • Eli Ankou: Restored to practice squad

    Ankou was restored to the Bills' practice squad from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ankou spent four days in COVID protocols and will now be able to rejoin the team. He's suited up in five games for the Bills this season, but it's unlikely he'll be elevated to the active roster before Sunday's divisional-round contest against the Chiefs.

  • Eli Ankou: Placed on Bills' COVID list

    The Bills placed Ankou (undisclosed) on the practice squad COVID list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    The defensive tackle will now be forced to be away from the team for the time being while going through league protocols surrounding COVID-19. Ankou appeared in five games for the Bills this season, making nine tackles including a sack.

  • Eli Ankou: Parts ways with Falcons

    Atlanta released Ankou on Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Ankou appeared in seven games with the Cowboys last season, over which span he racked up five tackles (one solo). The veteran defensive tackle wasn't able to carve out a role in Atlanta, but he could be a candidate to resurface elsewhere in the league.

  • Bills' Eli Ankou: Heads to Buffalo

    The Bills will sign Ankou to a contract this week, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

    The Bills have been operating under the max number of roster spots allowed at this point of the offseason, so they'll be adding a few more bodies ahead of training camp next month. Ankou has floated around several NFL rosters and will have a big hill to climb to make the team, as the Bills already are running pretty deep at defensive line and may have a harsh cut or two to make ahead of the season.

  • Falcons' Eli Ankou: Agrees to deal with Falcons

    Ankou has signed with the Falcons, John Deighton of the team's official site reports.

    Ankou impressed at the team's minicamp and earned a contract as a result. He has 27 games of NFL experience under his belt between the Jaguars, Browns and Cowboys.

  • Cowboys' Eli Ankou: Officially joins Cowboys

    Ankou's trade to the Cowboys for a Texans 2022 seventh-round pick has been finalized, per Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

    The UCLA product has spent time with the Colts, Jaguars and Browns since entering the league, but his most recent stop came with Houston, the first NFL team to ever offer him a camp invite. Ankou provides Dallas with depth along the defensive line, though the 26-year-old hasn't recorded a sack since playing for Jacksonville in 2017.

  • Cowboys' Eli Ankou: Traded to Dallas

    The Cowboys acquired Ankou via trade from the Texans on Friday for a 2022 seventh-round pick, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Ankou signed with the Texans less than two weeks ago and didn't play a snap with the team before being shipped a few hours north. He'll add much-needed depth at defensive tackle in Dallas, as the team released Dontari Poe earlier in the week. Ankou will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before joining team activities, meaning he won't play Week 8 against the Eagles.

  • Texans' Eli Ankou: Activated to 53-man roster

    The Texans activated Ankou off the commisioner's exempt list Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Colts waived Ankou on Saturday, and the Texans claimed him off waivers. The 26-year-old nose tackle will add depth on the defensive line but isn't expected to have much of an impact without an injury surfacing ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Eli Ankou: Gets waived

    Ankou was waived by the Colts on Saturday.

    Ankou did not see any time on the field during his stint on the Colts' active roster. Assuming he clears waivers, the 26-year-old will be a prime candidate to land on the team's practice squad.

  • Browns' Eli Ankou: Heads to Cleveland

    Ankou signed a contract with the Browns on Tuesday.

    Ankou failed to make Jacksonville's season-opening roster but remained with the team on the practice squad, but he'll now have a chance to make an impression in Cleveland. The 25-year-old figures to fill a depth role with the rest of the Browns' defensive line currently healthy.

  • Eli Ankou: Let go by Jacksonville

    The Jaguars cut Ankou on Sunday, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

    Ankou only played two games last season and made just four tackles, so he was likely a expendable piece on the defensive line. He will hope to latch onto another team to provide depth to a defensive line.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Minimal role in 2018

    Ankou had four tackles (two solo) in two games during 2018.

    Ankou was saddled by a calf issue for a few weeks during the season, but he was a healthy scratch for most of the campaign. The 24-year-old could see expanded opportunity in 2019 should Malik Jackson or Marcell Dareus end up a cap casualty, but he's unlikely to serve in more than a rotational role.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: To make 2018 debut

    Ankou (calf) is active Sunday against the Bills.

    Ankou entered the week with a "questionable" designation after taking the practice field on a limited basis during each session. He has yet to take the field this season but presumably will be asked to play a bigger role out of the gate with Marcell Dareus (back) landing on the inactive list.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Questionable for Sunday

    Ankou (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Ankou has been dealing with the calf issue over the last couple weeks but was able to return to practice as a limited participant this week. The 24-year-old has not been active for a game this season, but he could be needed Sunday with fellow defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (back) also questionable.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Inactive Sunday

    Ankou (calf) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers.

    Ankou was sidelined last week due to his calf injury and was considered doubtful entering Sunday. Look for Abry Jones to see some extra snaps as the only backup defensive tackle behind Marcell Dareus and Malik Jackson.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Doubtful once again

    Ankou (calf) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

    Ankou is listed as doubtful for the second straight week as he has yet to return to practice due to his calf injury. The Jaguars' depth at defensive tackle could be tested Sunday with Marcell Dareus (triceps) listed as questionable.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Inactive Week 10

    Ankou (calf) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with Indianapolis.

    Ankou was listed as doubtful entering Sunday's game, so his inactive status is no surprise. Ankou hasn't played at all this season, and his absence shouldn't have much impact, if any, on the defense.

  • Jaguars' Eli Ankou: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Ankou (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Ankou began the week as a limited practice participant but was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. The 24-year-old has not been active for a game yet this season, so he was unlikely to be a factor Sunday even if healthy.
