David Amerson: Cut loose by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson was released by the Cardinals on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

With 61 NFL starts to Amerson's name and the looming six-game suspension of starting cornerback Patrick Peterson, this move comes as a bit of a surprise. The 27-year-old nonetheless heads to the free-agent market on the heels of a 2018 campaign in which he accrued 21 tackles, two pass breakups and one pick in six games. Amerson should have a decent market for his services.

Cardinals' David Amerson: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Amerson sustained a concussion during a Week 15 loss to the Falcons, but he's managed to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time to suit up versus the Rams. Expect the veteran cornerback to draw his usual start opposite Patrick Peterson (illness).

Cardinals' David Amerson: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson suffered a possible concussion in Sunday's game against the Falcons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Amerson recorded one solo tackle before his injury forced Brandon Williams to play cornerback for the first time all season, according to Urban. Dontae Johnson, Quinten Rollins and Leonard Johnson would be candidates to fill in if Amerson misses time.

Cardinals' David Amerson: Back with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals re-signed Amerson on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Amerson was signed and subsequently released by the Cardinals last week, though Arizona had plans to bring him back. They made that happen Tuesday, and Amerson figures to provide secondary depth behind Patrick Peterson and Brandon Williams.

David Amerson: Parts ways with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson was released by the Cardinals on Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Amerson signed with Arizona earlier in the week, but was let go as the team needed to add depth at kicker and defensive end. Urban indicates the 26-year-old could re-sign with the team next week, depending on the injury situation.

Cardinals' David Amerson: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson will sign a contract with the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Amerson signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs this offseason but failed to make the 53-man roster before the beginning of the regular season. The 26-year-old has logged previous stints with the Redskins and Raiders, recording 18 tackles and four passes defensed across six games in Oakland last season. For now, he'll be viewed as a depth option in Arizona's secondary.

David Amerson: Cut by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson was cut by the Chiefs on Monday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The veteran signed a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Chiefs this offseason, but he ultimately failed to impress the coaching staff. Amerson will now hit the market and look for a team needing to bolster their secondary.

Chiefs' David Amerson: Agrees to deal with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) agreed to a one-year contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Amerson was cut by the Raiders earlier in the month, which makes him eligible to sign before free agency officially commences. He will stay in the division by joining the Chiefs on a deal with escalating incentives. The 26-year-old was drafted in the second round by the Redskins in 2013, but he joined the Raiders in 2015 after being claimed off waivers. His 2017 season ended following a foot injury in Week 7. It remains to be seen what type of role he will have in Kansas City, but he will look to impress once offseason activities begin.

David Amerson: Cut by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) was released by the Raiders on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Amerson's release is likely linked to contractual stipulations. If the 26-year-old were still on the roster by this Wednesday, Oakland would have owed Amerson $5.5 million in guaranteed money. Despite a big role in 2016, Amerson appeared in just six games for the Raiders this past season and registered just 18 combined tackles. With a relatively strong resume in his back pocket, Amerson should find a new home once free agency hits.

Raiders' David Amerson: Inactive for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Amerson will end the season with nine consecutive absences due to the foot injury, making it surprising the Raiders never placed him on injured reserve. As has been the case throughout the second half of the campaign, Sean Smith, TJ Carrie and Dexter McDonald are expected to serve as the teams primary cornerbacks in the season finale.

Raiders' David Amerson: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Amerson was a limited participant in practice this week and has missed eight consecutive games with the foot injury. It seems unlikely the 26-year-old would make a return for a meaningless Week 17 game after not seeing game action for such an extended period.

Raiders' David Amerson: Sidelined Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is inactive for Monday's game in Philadelphia.

Amerson will thus miss his eighth consecutive game. The NC State product suffered an apparent setback in his recovery from a mid-foot sprain earlier this month, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and it's quite possible he won't play again this season.

Raiders' David Amerson: Doubtful for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Eagles, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

Amerson did not practice this week and is listed as doubtful for the second straight game. The 26-year-old has missed the Raiders' last seven games and at this point doesn't seem likely to make a return in the final two weeks of the season.

Raiders' David Amerson: Inactive Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Raiders' official site reports.

Listed as doubtful coming into Sunday, Amerson will miss a seventh consecutive week. Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald will continue to fill in at cornerback.

Raiders' David Amerson: Doubtful for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Amerson started off the week as a limited participant in practice, but failed to progress beyond that, as he was held out of sessions Thursday and Friday. With Amerson on track to miss his seventh game in a row, TJ Carrie, Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald will act as the Raiders' primary cornerbacks.

Raiders' David Amerson: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

This will be Amerson's fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, but he's been limited in practice the last two weeks, so it seems he may be trending in the right direction. Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald will both play extra defensive snaps Sunday.

Raiders' David Amerson: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Amerson was listed as questionable after putting in a limited week of practice but now will miss his fifth consecutive game. Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald are the only remaining healthy cornerbacks available to the Raiders.

Raiders' David Amerson: Questionable for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Amerson has missed the Raiders' last four games with a foot injury, but limited practices from Wednesday through Friday will keep him in consideration for a return heading into the weekend. Though not a standout cornerback, Amerson's availability would boost a secondary that has struggled to create turnovers this season.

Raiders' David Amerson: To remain sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders have ruled out Anderson (foot) from returning for their matchup against the Broncos on Sunday.

The absence will mark Amerson's fourth straight due to a foot issue. Sean Smith will presumably continue getting the start in his place, while Dexter McDonald sees increased reps providing depth at cornerback.

Raiders' David Amerson: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amerson (foot) didn't practice Wednesday

Amerson has missed each of the past three games due to an undisclosed foot injury. He doesn't appear to be on track to return in time for Sunday's game against the Broncos but still has an opportunity to return to practice Thursday and Friday.
