Raiders' Will Compton: Posts 41 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton recorded 41 tackles over nine games in 2019.

Compton started the year on the Saints' injured reserve list, but he was let go with an injury settlement before signing with the Raiders. The 30-year-old linebacker worked in a reserve role for the first five games with his new team, but he started over the final four contests, accruing 29 tackles in that stretch. Compton will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton racked up 12 tackles (10 solo) in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.

Compton has tallied 21 total tackles in the Raiders' past two games, leading the team during this brief stretch with a Week 17 matchup against the Broncos on the horizon.

Raiders' Will Compton: Leads team in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton racked up nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars.

Compton had played no more than 20 defensive snaps in a single contest since joining the Raiders in Week 9, but he was dealt a full workload Sunday while leading the team in tackles along the way. Given his solid performance, Compton figures to start at middle linebacker once again in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Raiders' Will Compton: Heading to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Compton joined the Saints late in the preseason and suffered an ankle injury in the final exhibition game, leading to his release with an injury settlement. The 30-year-old appeared in 12 games with the Titans in 2018 and had 16 tackles (nine solo) and one forced fumble.

Will Compton: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (ankle) and the Saints have come to terms on an injury settlement per the NFL's official transaction log.

Compton suffered an ankle injury in the Saints' preseason finale. He was subsequently waived with an injury designation. From there, he went unclaimed and reverted to the team's injured reserve. He is now free to look for a new destination once his health allows it.

Saints' Will Compton: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, per the NFL transactions page.

Compton joined the team late in preseason, and unfortunately he suffered an ankle injury in the preseason finale. While the initial prognosis of his injury was mild, it's clearly more severe, as Compton will be shut down for the season unless he works out an injury settlement with the team.

Saints' Will Compton: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton exited Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins with an ankle injury, NOLA.com reports.

Compton had four tackles (one solo) before rolling his ankle late in the first quarter. The 29-year-old was designated probable to return, but he never actually retook the field and finished with 10 defensive snaps.

Saints' Will Compton: Heading to Big Easy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Compton on Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Compton spent 2018 with the Titans, primarily playing on special teams, making 16 tackles and forcing a fumble. The 29-year-old will look to add depth to a solid linebacking core, and could certainly earn a spot on the roster with the help of his special teams prowess.

Titans' Will Compton: Ready to rock Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Compton was able to fully participate in Friday's practice after having been limited Thursday. He's on track to play his usual role on special teams during Sunday's tilt against the Jets.

Titans' Will Compton: Appears on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Compton was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, so it appears that he picked up the hamstring injury during practice. The 29-year-old missed three games earlier this season due to a hamstring issue, but it remains to be seen whether his current injury is related. Compton has not played a defensive snap since Week 5, so if he were to miss any time, Tennessee's defense would likely remain unaffected.

Titans' Will Compton: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Compton has missed three straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but now appears to have fully recovered. Barring any setbacks, expect the rotational linebacker to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots.

Titans' Will Compton: Inactive again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) is inactive for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Compton will miss his third consecutive game due to a lingering ankle injury. The 29-year-old appeared to have a legitimate shot of suiting up Monday, but will ultimately remain sidelined as he continues to manage his recovery. Jayon Brown and Daren Bates could receive an uptick in defensive snaps as long as Compton remains out.

Titans' Will Compton: Questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cowboys, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Compton started the week with a pair of full practices and appeared to be past the hamstring issue, but apparently suffered a setback and was a limited participant Saturday. The 29-year-old missed the last two games and is now in danger of missing a third.

Titans' Will Compton: Healthy to enter Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Compton missed two consecutive games due to a lingering hamstring issue, but he appears to have returned to health during the Titans' bye week. Barring any setbacks, the rotational linebacker is expected to play during Monday's game against the Cowboys.

Titans' Will Compton: Sitting out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (hamstring) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chargers in London.

Compton will miss his second straight game with the hamstring issue that kept him from practicing this week. Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) is clear of an injury designation and will start alongside Rashaan Evans at inside linebacker.

Titans' Will Compton: Set to miss Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens due to a hamstring injury.

The severity of Compton's hamstring injury remains unclear, but it will keep him sidelined Sunday after he was unable to practice throughout the week. Fellow inside linebacker Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) is considered questionable, so Jayon Brown could see an increased snap count next to Rashaan Evans.

Titans' Will Compton: Records two tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton recorded two tackles during Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers.

While Compton seems to be over the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve last November, he doesn't seem to have a clear role in advance of the 2018 campaign. Not only has first-round rookie Rashaan Evans jumped him on the depth chart, but Jayon Brown has also outplayed him this preseason, leaving Compton far off the IDP radar until further notice.

Titans' Will Compton: Signing with Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (foot) has signed a one-year contract with the Titans, Justin Beasley of WSMV News 4 reports.

Compton mostly played on special teams for the Redskins during the first half of the 2017 campaign but was forced into a starting role after Mason Foster (shoulder) went down in Week 7. However, Compton only lasted a few games before getting injured himself, and he ultimately finished the season on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury. The linebacker didn't require surgery and said he felt close to fully recovered in mid-January, but this kind of injury can require a delicate recovery process and he may still be a ways off from receiving full medical clearance. In any case, Compton should be healthy by the time training camp rolls around in July. Considering the Titans let Avery Williamson walk in free agency, Jayon Brown seems to be his only competition for the starting job next to Wesley Woodyard.

Redskins' Will Compton: No surgery for foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (foot) did not require surgery on his sprained foot, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports.

The fact he didn't require surgery suggests Compton, who spent the final seven games of the 2017 campaign on injured reserve, isn't dealing with a particularly severe Lisfranc injury. In fact, Compton indicated in mid-January that while his foot still felt sore at the end of the season, his foot "should be healed soon." Thus, it seems the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent possesses favorable odds of being healthy in time for the start of free agency in March.

Redskins' Will Compton: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Compton (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Compton suffered a Lisfranc sprain in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, bringing his season to end. The veteran linebacker played almost exclusively on special teams to begin the season, but started the past two games against the Seahawks and Vikings after Mason Foster (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve. In nine games this season, Compton recorded 19 tackles (13 solo), three pass defensed and one interception. Look for Martrell Spaight and Josh Harvey-Clemons to see increased defensive snaps from here on out with Compton sidelined.
