Jermaine Whitehead: Cut loose by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns waived Whitehead on Monday.

Whitehead finished this past Sunday's game with zero tackles despite playing all 50 defensive snaps. Following the contest, he sent out multiple inappropriate tweets targeted at fans and reporters, and the Browns decided to let him go as a result. Whitehead finished his tenure in Cleveland with 41 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception over eight games.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Racks up tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead produced nine solo tackles in Sunday's home loss to Seattle.

Whitehead was one of the few bright spots for the Browns defense, collecting his highest tackle output of the season. He's up to 36 tackles in six games and played every defensive snap in the game, suggesting he could be a viable IDP option going forward. Whitehead and the Browns will head into their bye Week 7.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Records eight stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead made eight tackles (five solo) in Monday's 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

Even with Morgan Burnett (quadriceps) back in the fold, Whitehead logged 72 of 75 possible defensive snaps (96 percent). It was clear the Browns were easing Burnett back into action by affording him just 25 snaps, so it'll be interesting to see how their usage is distributed in Week 6 against the Seahawks.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Season-high eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead had eight tackles, an interception, a pass defensed and a forced fumble in Sunday's 40-25 win over the Ravens in Week 4.

Whitehead has been getting a lot playing time in place of the Browns' injured safeties. He's replaced Morgan Burnett (quadriceps) the last two games and started Week 2 for Damarious Randall, who had been dealing with a concussion until he was cleared to play against the Ravens. Whitehead's played every defensive snap the last three weeks and has made 18 tackles.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Loses groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (groin) has no injury designation during Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Whitehead spent a few weeks with this groin injury, but he shook it just in time for the Browns' first injury report. He's expected to suit up for Sunday's game against the Titans and will rotate in on defense behind safeties Morgan Burnett and Damarious Randall, although Eric Murray may earn more reps. If that's the case, Whitehead's main role will be operating on special teams.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Managing groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead did not practice Monday due to a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The severity of Whitehead's injury remains undisclosed, putting his status for Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers up in the air. The 26-year-old projects to provide the Browns with depth at the safety position when healthy while also playing a role on special teams.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Signs contract tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead signed a contract with the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports

Whitehead was an exclusive-rights free agent who had little option but to sign the tender he was extended. The Auburn product initially slots back in as a depth safety behind Damarious Randall and Eric Murray.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Signs contract with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns extended a tender to Whitehead on Friday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

Whitehead was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Nov. 7, and played exclusively on special teams. In seven games with Cleveland, the Auburn product accumulated just four tackles (one solo). The 25-year-old should continue to serve his role on special teams and as a depth safety for the Browns.

Browns' Jermaine Whitehead: Claimed by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Whitehead could become an integral component to Sunday's game plan given Cleveland's depleted depth in the secondary. While there's no guarantee Whitehead will be a fixture with the Browns moving forward, there seems to be a role for him come Sunday.

Jermaine Whitehead: Released by Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers released Whitehead on Tuesday.

Whitehead was ejected from Sunday's game against the Patriots for slapping the facemask of Patriots center David Andrews, leaving one to wonder if his release was at all related to the incident. The second-year safety recorded 20 tackles and a sack during his time with the Packers, and will likely receive interest from teams in need of secondary depth.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Ejected from game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead was ejected from Sunday's game against the Patriots after making contact with the facemask of Patriots center David Andrews, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Whitehead was ejected in the second quarter, and his absence robbed the Packers of depth in a secondary that just let go of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix earlier in the week. The defensive back will finish the game with four tackles.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Active for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Whitehead was limited in practice to end the week due to a lingering back issue, but appears unhindered by the injury and will suit up for Sunday's matchup against New England. The 25-year-old played 75 defensive snaps against the Rams in Week 8 and should be in line for another large defensive workload against the Tom Brady-led Patriots passing attack.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Whitehead started the week not practicing but was able to put in limited sessions Thursday and Friday. If healthy, the 25-year-old should serve a key rotational role in the secondary that is now without the recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Tramon Williams is shifting from cornerback to safety, but Whitehead should still have a significant role defensively after playing 75 snaps against the Rams.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead was unable to practice to begin the week, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. The 25-year-old has been dealing with a lingering back issue for weeks, and he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. If he's able to suit up, expect Whitehead to play a key rotational role in Green Bay's secondary, which now lacks the recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Misses practice with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead was held out of practice with a back issue, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead has dealt with a back issue for much of the season, so his absence during Wednesday's practice isn't all that surprising, and, as of now, he's expected to play against the Patriots on Sunday night. Whitehead is a candidate to replace recently traded Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in Green Bay's secondary due to his ability to play both hybrid safety and slot cornerback. The second-year defensive back has 17 tackles and two pass deflections this season.

Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Active for Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) is active for Monday's contest against the 49ers, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Whitehead will return to action after missing Week 5's game against the Lions. He will provide depth at strong safety behind starter Kentrell Brice.

October 13, 2018 06:04 PM
Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead was a limited participant at practice this week after sitting out Week 5. The 25-year-old averaged 26 defensive snaps in his previous four contests, and if inactive his role would likely be filled by Josh Jones.

October 7, 2018 11:52 AM
Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Whitehead has averaged 26 defensive snaps per game over the first four weeks, and he's made eight solo tackles, one sack and two pass breakups in that span. Expect Josh Jones to see an uptick in snaps in his absence.

October 6, 2018 02:48 PM
Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Sits out practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) didn't practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Whitehead logged a sack in Week 4 against the Bills but has been used in a limited role during most games. If he can't go, expect Raven Green to see the first defensive snaps of his career.

August 20, 2018 03:44 PM
Packers' Jermaine Whitehead: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (back) returned to practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Whitehead has been sidelined since injuring his back during the Packers' preseason opener against the Titans, but the safety was able to participate in 11-on-11 drills Monday. He's slated to serve as Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's primary backup at free safety, though Raven Greene also provides competition at the position.
