Raiders' Ahtyba Rubin: Planted on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin sustained a season-ending biceps tear during last week's joint practices with the Lions. To replace him on the roster, Oakland claimed fellow defensive lineman Gabe Wright off waivers.

Raiders' Ahtyba Rubin: Heads to west coast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin signed with the Raiders on Tuesday.

Rubin played two games with Denver in 2017 before being released and completing the final 10 games with Atlanta. He played in a depth role and made 15 tackles. Rubin will be 32 years old when the season begins, and an already strong defensive front will likely keep him from making much of an impact.

Falcons' Ahtyba Rubin: Reaches deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons signed Rubin to a contract Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The Falcons waived Taniela Tupou from the 53-man roster to make room for Rubin, who will presumably take over Tupou's role as the top backup to defensive tackle Dontari Poe. The 31-year-old Rubin was once a high-end IDP asset along the defensive line with a pair of 80-tackle campaigns on his resume, but he's seen his effectiveness wane in recent years. Rubin's decline has resulted in him bouncing around the league a bit, as the Falcons are the third team he'll suit up for since 2016.

Ahtyba Rubin: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Rubin was only active for two games in Denver this season, and he played a total of 17 snaps. He has been a steady contributor in the past, so the 31-year-old may still have a future in the league.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin is not expected to play Sunday against Dallas since he just signed Friday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Rubin is expected to help add depth to the battered defensive front in Denver. It is unclear how much the Broncos will use Rubin when he is active, but it's unlikely he'll be summoned enough to be an IDP threat.

Broncos' Ahtyba Rubin: Signs with Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin signed with the Broncos on Friday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin sprained his wrist in Saturday's loss to Arizona, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.

Rubin missed time on Saturday due to his sprained wrist and his status for Week 17 remains on clear. His ability to practice this week will provide greater insight in to his availability for Sunday's regular season finale against the 49ers. John Jenkins and Jarran Reed will figure to see increased roles if Rubin is sidelined.

Seahawks' Ahtyba Rubin: Questionable to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rubin (wrist) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Rubin's absence could prove significant Saturday given the Seahawks' lack of depth along the interior of their defensive line. Rookie Jarran Reed is the likely candidate to fill in at defensive tackle as long as Rubin is sidelined.
