Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Re-ups with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (triceps) re-signed Tuesday with the Ravens on a one-year contract.

After stints in Chicago and Washington over the preceding four years, McPhee returned to Baltimore in 2019 for his second stint with the team that drafted him. He was in the midst of a resurgent campaign with the Ravens before a torn triceps ended his season in late October, finishing with 19 tackles and three sacks across seven appearances. Presumably healthy again after inking a new deal with Baltimore, McPhee should factor into the rotation with Jaylon Ferguson and Jihad Ward at the edge-rushing spot opposite Matt Judon.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens placed McPhee (triceps) on injured reserve Tuesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

McPhee suffered a torn triceps during Sunday's win in Seattle, and is expected to miss the rest of the season. His placement on IR clears up a roster spot for the team, and Jaylon Ferguson will likely stand to see an increase in reps with McPhee out. McPhee finishes the season with 19 tackles (17 solo) and three sacks in seven games.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Out with torn triceps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach John Harbaugh said McPhee is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn triceps, Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun reports.

McPhee exited Sunday's game against the Seahawks after playing only 12 snaps due to the injury. The 30-year-old should be headed to injured reserve in the near future so the team can clear up a roster spot. Jaylon Ferguson will likely be the main beneficiary at outside linebacker for the Ravens.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee left Sunday's game with the Seahawks due to an arm injury and is doubtful to return.

McPhee has just 18 tackles on the season, but three of them are sacks. He'll be replaced at linebacker by Jaylon Ferguson and Matt Judon.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Shines in division battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee recorded six solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 26-23 win over Pittsburgh.

While he's finished with a sack in three of Baltimore's first five games of the season, McPhee has managed just 15 total tackles up to this point in the 2019 campaign. The six tackles in Sunday's win were a season high for the 30-year-old linebacker.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Off to solid start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee made three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 59-10 win over the Dolphins.

McPhee only played 51 percent of the team's defensive snaps, and he made an impact by dropping Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The veteran linebacker didn't have a pass-rushing role in Washington's defense last year, so it looks like the Ravens are using him in a different fashion in 2019.

Ravens' Pernell McPhee: Returning to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

In doing so, the 2011 fifth-rounder is returning to the team that drafted him, for which McPhee should help beef up a linebacking corps that could use some pass-rushing depth. Since departing Baltimore after churning out his still-career-high 7.5 sacks in 2014, McPhee spent three years in Chicago before relocating to Washington in 2018. In neither locale was McPhee able to log a full 16-game season. At 30 years old, Baltimore likely isn't counting on him to handle a heavy workload.

Redskins' Pernell McPhee: Feeling healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (shoulder) has been involved in the Redskins' voluntary offseason workouts and claims he's feeling healthy, Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post reports.

McPhee's three-year tenure in Chicago was derailed by a slew of maladies, including a lingering knee issue and a right shoulder injury he suffered last December. He's getting a fresh start in Washington and should provide a nice boost to the Redskins' pass rush, considering he's racked up 31 sacks in 96 career games.

Redskins' Pernell McPhee: Signs with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (shoulder) signed a contract with the Redskins on Monday.

McPhee was released by the Bears in February after battling chronic knee issues over the past few seasons. The 29-year-old landed on injured reserve in December with a shoulder injury but faced a limited snap count through much of the season due to his knees. The veteran is likely to serve in a rotational role for the Redskins behind starting outside linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith.

Pernell McPhee: Released by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears released McPhee (shoulder) on Monday.

Since inking a five-year, $38.75 million contract with the Bears in 2015, McPhee has struggled to stay on the field, with chronic knee issues proving particularly problematic for the outside linebacker. He's missed multiple games in each of his three seasons with Chicago, and though he suited up for 13 contests in 2017, McPhee had his snap counts restricted in most of those outings. While it was a right shoulder injury that resulted in McPhee finishing the past season on injured reserve, it's the health of his knees that will likely give teams pause in handing him significant guaranteed money as he heads back to the free-agent pool. The 29-year-old is probably best utilized as a part-time player at this stage of his career.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Shuttered for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed McPhee (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday.

McPhee will be replaced on the 53-man roster by fellow linebacker Jonathan Anderson, who was signed in a corresponding move. Since inking a five-year, $38.75 million pact with the Bears in March of 2015, McPhee has had difficulty staying healthy, with chronic knee issues hindering him in addition to the right shoulder injury he sustained in the Week 15 loss to the Lions. McPhee will wrap up the 2017 campaign with 21 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble across 13 appearances.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Doubtful to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (shoulder) is doubtful to return to Saturday's contest at Detroit.

During the Lions' touchdown drive in the second quarter, McPhee blew up a screen play but promptly went to the sideline favoring his right arm. Now confirmed as a shoulder injury, he likely aggravated the issue that forced a one-game absence Week 14. Moving forward, he could be a weekly question mark for the final two outings of the season.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

McPhee was held out of practice all last week and was inactive for Sunday's game in Cincinnati due to a shoulder injury, but he looks to be ready to go for Week 15 after putting together a full session Thursday.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

McPhee was unable to practice this week due to the shoulder issue, so he never had a great shot at playing Sunday. His absence should leave more snaps available for fellow edge rushers Sam Acho, Lamarr Houston and Howard Jones.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Diagnosed with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee was limited to one defensive series in Sunday's loss to the 49ers before exiting with what the Bears labeled as a shoulder injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

There was some fear that McPhee may have sustained a concussion after taking a blow to the upper body, but it appears that his shoulder absorbed the brunt of the contact. McPhee has mostly been bothered by knee issues off and on since signing a five-year contract with the Bears in March 2015, and now that he's dealing with an additional concern, it may make sense for the team to hold him out or at least limit his reps during the final four games of the season now that Chicago is officially eliminated from playoff contention.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Exits for injury evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee is being evaluated for a possible head injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

McPhee took a blow to the head and will be out if it's determined that he suffered a concussion. Sam Acho and Lamarr Houston will be the team's only active outside linebackers if McPhee is unable to return.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Active Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

McPhee was a late addition to the injury report after he practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday, but was held out entirely Friday due to his knee injury. The issue doesn't appear to be too severe since he's playing. Look for Isaiah Irving to see a slight uptick in snaps if McPhee is limited at all during Sunday's contest.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Posts another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee tallied a sack and a tackle in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Panthers.

McPhee was able to record a sack for the fourth time in the five games he's played this season. Despite averaging less than two tackles per contest, he's shown excellent ability to rush the passer, and although he has a worrisome floor, he's proven to be a strong IDP option while enjoying a healthy start to the season.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Collects third sack of season in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee recorded a sack and two tackles in Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Ravens.

In his first game against the team he played with for the first four years of his career, McPhee made his mark by sacking Joe Flacco. He's notched a sack in three of his last four games, and although he offers very meager numbers in the tackle category, his ability to rush the passer gives him strong weekly IDP upside.

Bears' Pernell McPhee: Another strong performance in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McPhee notched a sack and three tackles in Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Packers.

Although Aaron Rodgers didn't drop back often in a game that had the Packers playing without their top five offensive tackles, McPhee made the most of his chances by collecting one of two Chicago sacks. With takedowns in back-to-back contests, McPhee is quickly becoming a sneaky IDP option.
