Bengals' Mike Daniels: Returns from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals activated Daniels (elbow) from injured reserve Saturday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels will return to the lineup Sunday against the Browns after three weeks on the sidelines. D.J. Reader (quadriceps) is currently on injured reserve, so Daniels could handle an expanded workload right away. The Bengals' situation at defensive tackle is a bit unusual, however, as Geno Atkins has taken a backseat to Christian Covington and Xavier Williams, so Daniels' role could be more limited than expected.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Practice window opens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals designated Daniels (elbow) for return from IR on Wednesday.

Cincinnati will now have a 21-day window to evaluate Daniels at practice without him counting against the 53-man roster. He'll be eligible to be bumped to the active roster at any time during that period. When back to full health, the veteran defensive tackle will help shore up a position of need for the Bengals.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Daniels (elbow) on injured reserve Saturday.

Daniels is ineligible to return until the Week 7 matchup against the Browns. The veteran's absence will hurt the Bengals' depth at defensive tackle, especially since Geno Atkins (shoulder) will miss a fourth straight game. For the time being, expect D.J. Reader and Christian Covington to handle a bulk of the workload while Freedom Akinmoladun and Andrew Brown rotate in.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Won't play in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

With Geno Atkins (shoulder) still not ready to make his season debut, Cincinnati will roll with D.J. Reader and Christian Covington at the defensive tackle position. Daniels will hope to heal up in time for the Week 5 clash with the AFC North rival Ravens.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Active Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) has avoided the inactive list Week 3 against Philadelphia, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Daniels logged a pair of tackles in the season opener but was then forced to sit out Week 2 against the Bengals. His presence in the interior will be much welcomed with Geno Atkins (shoulder) set to miss another game.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Daniels was unable to practice at all this week, so the defensive tackle should be considered on the wrong side of questionable for Cincinnati's Week 3 road tilt.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Still bothered by groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Daniels played through a groin injury in the season-opening loss to the Chargers, but he hasn't practiced since. DT Geno Atkins (shoulder) also missed Wednesday's practice, and if neither can shake off his respective injury, DT Christian Covington will likely start Sunday's game versus the Eagles.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Unable to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) didn't participate in Monday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Daniels missed this past Thursday's game versus the Browns, and he's still unable to get on the practice field. It's early in the week so things could change when the first official practice report is revealed Wednesday, and a quick recovery would be beneficial with Geno Atkins (shoulder) still on the mend.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Won't face Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) is ruled out for Thursday's divisional contest in Cleveland, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Daniels played through his groin injury Week 1 against the Chargers, but the short turnaround leading up to Thursday Night Football will now prevent him from making a second consecutive start. With Geno Atkins (shoulder) also ruled out for Week 2, Cincinnati's run defense could have significant difficulty containing Cleveland's backfield tandem of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Sits out practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) didn't participate in Monday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Daniels dealt with this injury leading up to Week 1's loss to the Chargers, but he played 41 total snaps in the game and recorded two tackles (one solo). We shouldn't read into his Monday missed practice as a result, as he'll likely be good to go for Thursday's divisional showdown against the Browns. However, his role will likely depend on Geno Atkins' (shoulder) availability.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) was a full participant in Friday's practice and will play Sunday versus the Chargers.

Daniels' injury caused concern when he didn't practice Wednesday, but the veteran defensive tackle is ready to make his Bengals debut Sunday. With Geno Atkins (shoulder) ruled out, Daniels is in line to start against the Chargers.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Nursing groin issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (groin) didn't suit up at Wednesday's practice.

It's unclear how Daniels suffered the injury, however, it's serious enough to force him to miss valuable practice time. Geno Atkins (shoulder) also missed practice Wednesday, so if either or both miss time, duties would shift to just D.J. Reader, Christian Covington and Andrew Brown on the interior of the defensive line in Week 1.

Bengals' Mike Daniels: Signs with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals inked Daniels (arm) to a one-year contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Daniels' deal is reportedly worth up to $2.7 million. The 31-year-old was limited to nine contests and 10 tackles with the Lions last season due to an arm injury, but having passed his physical prior to signing is an indication that he's now operating at full health. The veteran defensive tackle stands to provide the Bengals with valuable interior depth for 2020.

Mike Daniels: Visiting Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (arm) met with the Bengals on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

A few years removed from being a stalwart in the middle of the Packers' defensive line, Daniels hasn't played a full regular season since 2016. He was a member of the Lions last year, when he was limited to nine games and 10 tackles due to foot and arm injuries. The second issue forced Daniels to injured reserve in December, so an upcoming physical (plus COVID testing) will be key to him landing a job in Cincinnati.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (arm) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Daniels left this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with an arm injury, and the Lions will shut him down for the year. The long-time Packer finishes his first season in the Motor City with 10 tackles and a sack over nine games. Daniels is an unrestricted free agent in March.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Suffers arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels exited Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with an arm injury.

The 30-year-old played a season-high 53 defensive snaps last week but sustained the injury during the first half Sunday. John Atkins and Frank Herron could see increased work at defensive tackle while Daniels is sidelined.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Notches first sack with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Bears.

Daniels received his first game action since Week 3 after missing five games with a foot injury. The veteran's availability comes at a crucial time in Detroit's season, as they sit at 3-5-1 with their season on the ropes. Daniels and the rest of the Lions' defensive line will be tasked with slowing down a high-powered Dallas offense in Week 11.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Daniels hasn't seen game action since Week 3 and was a limited practice participant this week. The 30-year-old will likely fill a rotational role on the defensive line if he's able to suit up.

November 3, 2019 01:56 AM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Daniels was originally considered doubtful, so it's not much of a surprise to ultimately see him ruled out. Kevin Strong and John Atkins should see rotational snaps at defensive tackle in his place.

November 1, 2019 04:32 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Doubtful for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is considered doubtful to suit up against the Raiders on Sunday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels logged a trio of limited practice sessions this week, but it appears as though he's trending towards a fifth straight absence. Expect Kevin Strong and John Atkins to see rotational snaps at defensive tackle once again Week 9.
