Pierce (hamstring) was waived Monday by the Broncos, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.
Pierce was sidelined with the hamstring injury about a month ago and never was able to make it back to the field. The team expected him to miss a few days once he suffered the injury, but Pierce's recovery evidently didn't progress as quickly as the club had hoped. Pierce, a six-year veteran, could find a new home given his prior experience, but not until he proves he's healthy.
Pierce (hamstring) has yet to return to Broncos' practice, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' team website reports.
After spending the majority of 2016 on the injured reserve, Pierce signed a reserve/future contract with the team during the offseason. It is unclear when Pierce suffered the hamstring injury, but it has kept him absent from the first three weeks of training camp. At this point, he figures to have a tough time earning a spot on the final roster.
Pierce is expected to miss a few days of practice due to a hamstring injury, Mike Klis of 9News reports.
PIerce signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos in January after spending the year on injured reserve. The severity of his hamstring injury is unknown, but he figures to be cautious in order to avoid a lingering issue. However, he is competing for a role providing depth at running back on the final roster, so a return sooner than later will be in his best interest.
Pierce signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos on Tuesday.
The fifth-year back has played in 52 NFL games, including three starts, with the Ravens and Jaguars since 2012. Most recently, he spent time with the Jets but landed on injured reserve due to a hamstring issue, forcing him to miss the entirety of the 2016-17 season.
Pierce was released by the Jets on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
It was unlikely that Pierce would have been a main contributor for the Jets' backfield anyway. The 25-year-old found himself stuck behind the ever-emerging Bilal Powell and proven Matt Forte. In the end, a change of scenery may bode well for the talented Temple product.
Pierce (hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Pierce may end up getting released with an injury settlement, as he was merely a fringe roster candidate before injuring his hamstring early in camp. The 2012 third-round pick also has an upcoming two-game suspension, which made him even less likely to earn a spot on the final roster. The Jets are replacing Pierce with Antone Smith, who will compete with Dominique Williams (concussion), Lache Seastrunk, Romar Morris and Terry Williams for what will likely be just one roster spot.
Pierce (suspension/hamstring) won't suit up for Thursday's preseason opener versus the Jaguars.
Afflicted by a hamstring concern since early last week, Pierce will join Matt Forte (hamstring) and Khiry Robinson (lower leg) in street clothes Thursday. The Jets will instead rely on a backfield composed of Bilal Powell, Dominique Williams, and Romar Morris.
Pierce (hamstring) sat out of Tuesday's practice, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
The 25-year-old missed nine games last year with the Jaguars, mostly due to a calf injury. Pierce is currently looking up at both Matt Forte and Bilal Powell on the Jets' depth chart, but with Forte's injury history, Pierce could be someone to keep an eye on as he heals.
The Jets will sign Pierce, who is set to serve a two-game suspension to start the 2016 season, NFL.com reports.
Matt Forte and Bilal Powell currently top the Jets' RB depth chart, but Pierce will give the team added backfield depth heading into training camp, with Khiry Robinson a candidate to open camp on the PUP list and the team planning to waive Zac Stacy with a failed physical designation.
Pierce (calf) has been suspended for the first two games of the 2016 NFL campaign, ESPN reports.
There is no official word on the reasoning behind Pierce's suspension, but it may have to do with a DUI arrest from last March. The free-agent running back was claimed off of waivers by Jacksonville only a day after his arrest, but ultimately only gained 11 yards on six carries in 2015. At this point, given his lack of production last season, his injury problems and his off-the-field issues, Pierce will face an uphill battle as he looks for work this coming season.
Pierce was placed on injured reserve Monday, the Jaguars' official site reports.
During pregame warmups for a Week 10 tilt in Baltimore, Pierce injured his calf and subsequently missed the Jags' past four games. With seemingly no end in sight to the absences, he'll miss the rest of his first season in Jacksonville, where he turned six carries into 11 yards and three receptions (on five targets) into seven yards.
Pierce (calf) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Pierce has only six carries on the season, so his absence should be of little consequence to fantasy teams.
Pierce (calf) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Chargers, Jaguars.com reports.
Pierce has been battling a calf injury for the last couple of weeks, and he was inactive for last Thursday's win over the Titans. The former Raven appears destined for a second straight inactive designation, though he likely wouldn't hold a major role in the offense, regardless.
Pierce (calf) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Pierce likely suffered his injury on special teams during Sunday's win over the Ravens, as he didn't get any offensive snaps. In Pierce's absence, Toby Gehart (groin) will serve as the No. 3 running back.
Pierce (calf) is considered doubtful to play Thursday night against Tennessee, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Pierce is battling a calf injury and is on track to be held out of the primetime matchup. The 24-year-old Pierce has logged just six carries for 11 yards on the year.
Jaguars running back Bernard Pierce is not listed on the injury report.
Pierce missed the Week 6 loss to Houston due to a concussion, but his absence from the report indicates that he's cleared protocol. If T.J. Yeldon (groin) is again inactive Sunday, Pierce could see a few carries.
Jaguars running back Bernard Pierce (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Pierce was unable to practice at all this week due to his concussion, so he will not be able to play in Sunday's game. Fellow running back T.J. Yeldon (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday, so it remains to be seen who will start at running back for the Jaguars in Week 6.
Jaguars running back Bernard Pierce did not practice Thursday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Fellow running back T.J. Yeldon also missed practice Thursday, which sets the stage for the possibility that the Week 6 backfield could be headed by Denard Robinson or Toby Gerhart.
Gus Bradley said Wednesday that Jaguars running back Bernard Pierce is going through concussion protocol, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The exact nature of the setback is not clear, but it leaves his status for Week 6 uncertain. It's not evident how much he will practice this week, but he will need to be cleared to take the field Sunday against the Texans.
Jaguars running back Bernard Pierce carried twice for six yards in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
The news here is that T.J. Yeldon left Sunday's game with a groin injury, and if he ends up missing any time, Pierce could be thrust into action. With Denard Robinson (knee) still banged up, a Yeldon absence would likely result in Pierce and Toby Gerhart handling the bulk of the rushing workload in what has not been a productive ground attack this season.
