by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Chargers' Anthony Lanier: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier was signed to the Chargers' active roster Thursday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

Lanier was signed to the Chargers' practice squad in November. He posted five sacks for the Redskins in 2017 and could provide some quality backup snaps to the Chargers down the stretch this season. Look for him to operate as a depth pass rusher and special teams player during his time with the team.

Anthony Lanier: Waived by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier (hip) was waived by Washington on Monday, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports.

It's a bit of a surprising move by the Redskins, considering Lanier was impressive in a limited showing last season while registering five sacks over the final seven games. The third-year pro has been dealing with a hip flexor over the past few days, so there is a chance he may end up back on the Redskins' injured reserve list should he clear waivers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins' Anthony Lanier: Ready for Thanksgiving game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lanier was limited in practice for the second consecutive week, but it shouldn't affect his abilities Thursday night. Regardless, he's still only deployed for around 30 defensive snaps per game, so he's not a consistent fantasy threat.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier (knee) is active for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Lanier was limited in practice throughout the week but isn't expected to be limited much Sunday. The return of Matthew Ioannidis (hand) gives the Redskins some added defensive line depth and could result in a slight snap reduction for Lanier.

Redskins' Anthony Lanier: Questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lanier was a limited participant in practice this week after playing 22 of 61 defensive snaps in last week's loss to the Vikings. Lanier and Matthew Ioannidis (hand) are both listed as questionable, which could leave Washington's defensive line short on depth if both are unable to play.
