Bills' Dean Marlowe: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Bills on Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Marlowe was placed on the list due to coming in close contact with Josh Norman, who tested positive for the virus last weekend. Marlowe is expected to return to the lineup for the Week 12 game against the Chargers, as he'll add depth in the secondary while seeing most of his snaps on special teams.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Part of COVID-19 incident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe has been determined to have been in recent close contact with Josh Norman, who has tested positive for COVID-19, The Buffalo News reports. Marlowe has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will not play Sunday at Arizona.

The Bills have had issues in their secondary all season, so Marlowe has been seeing meaningful time on defense for weeks. For now, Buffalo will have to figure out a way to replace Norman, Levi Wallace and Marlowe, as the secondary is now severely depleted for Sunday's contest.

Dean Marlowe: Sticks with Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe has re-signed with the Bills on a one-year deal.

The Bills are set at safety with Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, but Marlowe knows the defense well enough to serve as a dependable backup and has proven to be a decent special teams player. His re-signing does leave the Bills' interest in veteran Kurt Coleman (now a free agent) in question, however.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

Marlowe was limited at practice earlier in the week before logging a full workload Friday. He completed his trend in the positive direction Saturday by clearing the final stage of the league's protocol. The 27-year-old is now set to resume his role providing depth at safety.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Marlowe was able to elevate to full participation in Friday's practice, but he still needs to clear the league's concussion protocol. The 27-year-old safety should be considered a game-time decision for Sunday's kickoff at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Nursing concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe is in the concussion protocol Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Marlowe suffered a head injury during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He'll now need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before retaking the field. Jaquan Johnson will see additional opportunities as a depth safety if Marlowe is unable to return for this week's game against the Titans.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Suffers possible head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe is being evaluated for a possible head injury, and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Any time you see a player being evaluated for a head injury, one must assume it's for a concussion. It's unclear how Marlowe picked up the injury, but expect him to get further tests, with Jaquan Johnson filling in as a depth safety.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Returning to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills brought Marlowe up from the practice squad Wednesday.

Marlowe and the Bills parted ways in early October after he received a spot start for the team just a day prior, but he landed in the practice squad and now gets a late-season promotion. He's been brought back on with a pair of players in the secondary dealing with injuries. Still, he shouldn't serve as much more than a depth option.

Dean Marlowe: Let go by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe was waived Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Reside on the practice squad until Friday. Get promoted on a Saturday. Get bumped to a starter's spot Sunday and have a key role in a close win. Get cut 48 hours later so a 35-year-old quarterback can take your place. Such is life in the NFL for fringe players like Marlowe, who was waived so the Bills could make room for veteran Derek Anderson. The Bills like Marlowe and what he brings to the table, so we'll see if they try to bring the safety back to the practice squad.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Gets Week 5 spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe, just promoted from the practice squad Saturday, started at safety across from Jordan Poyer in Sunday's win over the Titans and logged four tackles and a pass defensed.

Marlowe played all 54 defensive snaps, so he was the clear-cut starter at least for one week and didn't have to share time with rookie Siran Neal. Marlowe played capably according to coach Sean McDermott's post-game comments, but his run as a starter could be short-lived if either Micah Hyde (groin) or Rafael Bush (shoulder) gets back to practicing this week.

Bills' Dean Marlowe: Gets Week 5 promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Marlowe is no stranger to Buffalo brass, as they've all collectively reunited from their Carolina days. The safety may be no stranger to the field Sunday either, as safeties Micah Hyde and Rafael Bush haven't practiced all week, and the only other healthy safety is a rookie in Siran Neal.

Dean Marlowe: Waived with injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) was waived with an injury settlement Tuesday, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Marlowe is now free from injured reserve and can sign with another team.

Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) reverted to injured reserve.

Marlowe was waived/injured by the Panthers on Tuesday due to a torn hamstring. He's likely stuck on IR through the end of the season, barring an injury settlement.

Dean Marlowe: Lands on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) was waived/injured by the Panthers on Tuesday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Marlowe has only suited up for five NFL games in his two seasons in the league, but he was expected to be a valid depth safety in Carolina. Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports Marlowe was waived due to a torn hamstring. He'll likely revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Returns to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) participated in the entirety of the Panthers' OTAs, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports. "This is the first time I actually put on a helmet since September," Marlowe said. "But adversity can be key -- you just have to bounce back and keep pushing. I'm so happy to be out here healthy and performing on the field."

Marlowe spent nearly his entire rookie season on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury, but he now appears to be back to 100 percent. The second-year James Madison product picked off a few passes in front of reporters during OTAs and seems to be making a strong case for the No. 2 strong safety job behind Kurt Coleman.

Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Marlowe ends his 2016 campaign after only 16 snaps in his season debut against the 49ers on Sunday. The undrafted safety suffered a hamstring injury early in the preseason and finally appeared healthy enough to play Sunday. Unfortunately, he aggravated the injury early in the game, leaving the Panthers no choice but to pull the plug on the 24-year-old's season. Marlowe's injury creates a hole in Carolina's special teams unit and leaves Kurt Coleman as the only strong safety on the active roster.

Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Aggravates hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe aggravated a previous hamstring injury and is expected to have an MRI performed in the near future, Bryan Strickland of reports.

Marlowe missed the team's season opener with a hamstring injury that also caused him to be limited throughout the preseason. He was able to return the field during Week 2, but failed to record a statistic in limited time. Instead, he appeared to have re-aggravated his hamstring injury and is now slated to undergo an MRI. Once the results are in, we should have a better indication of a potential absence.

Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Marlowe will suit up for the game after missing Week 1 due to a hamstring injury. While he won't be starting, he figures to get valuable reps behind Kurt Coleman and Tre Boston throughout the game.

September 16, 2016 07:32 PM
Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, but coach Ron Rivera expects him to play, The Charlotte Observer's Joseph Person reports.

Marlowe missed Carolina's Week 1 loss in Denver due to a hamstring ailment, but his condition has improved and he's expected to suit up Sunday. Should that transpire, Marlowe figures to bolster the Panthers' depth at safety, serving as a reserve behind starters Kurt Coleman and Tre Boston.

September 14, 2016 07:38 PM
Panthers' Dean Marlowe: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlowe (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Marlowe was inactive for the Panthers' regular season opener against the Broncos last Thursday, but according to coach Ron Rivera there's a good chance Marlowe will be able to play in Week 2 against the 49ers, Bryan Strickland of reports. Carolina could also play it safe with Marlowe, however, as San Francisco's aerial attack isn't expected to be dangerous. Kurt Coleman and Tre Boston figure to start at the safety spots regardless, with Colin Jones potentially earning additional reps if Marlowe is sidelined.
