Jets' Courtney Upshaw: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw has signed a contract with the Jets.

Upshaw spent the early years of his career playing outside linebacker in Baltimore's 3-4 scheme, but he has spent the past couple of seasons with a hand in the dirt at either defensive end or defensive tackle for the Falcons. Now at 272 pounds, he will return to a 3-4 scheme in New York, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Jets keep him at defensive end. Either way, the 2012 second-round pick's versatility should give him a shot to play on Sundays this fall.

Courtney Upshaw: Visits Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw visited the Eagles recently, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

A 2012 second-round pick, Upshaw spent the first four seasons of his career playing outside linebacker in Baltimore's 3-4 defense, then spent the past two years at end and tackle in Atlanta's 4-3 scheme. He only has 216 tackles, seven sacks and six forced fumbles in 90 career regular-season games, but the versatility might make him useful if the Eagles were to run into injury issues with their fantastic defensive line. The 28-year-old probably would have a better shot at a meaningful Week 1 role if he signed with a less talented team.

Falcons' Courtney Upshaw: Gearing up for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice but will be ready to play Sunday against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Upshaw will make his first appearance since leaving after the first snap in Week 2 against the Packers. He'll immediately return to his starting role, and it'll be interesting to see how he reacts to a full workload. Upshaw should be considered a wait-and-see IDP option for the time being.

Falcons' Courtney Upshaw: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Upshaw did not practice this week and has not seen game action since suffering the injury Week 2 against the Packers. Derrick Shelby should continue to see snaps a starting defensive end in his absence.

Falcons' Courtney Upshaw: Held out of Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw (ankle) did not practice Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Upshaw has not played since leaving Week 2's game against the Packers with the injury, and even following a bye week, the linebacker is still unable to return to the practice field. Upshaw will likely have to log at least a limited practice session this week in order to have any chance of playing Sunday against the Dolphins.
