Travaris Cadet: Gets workout with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet will work out with the Saints on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Cadet suited up for one game with the Panthers in 2018, but has not seen any other action since. The 30-year-old journeyman has played with six different teams since 2012, including two separate stints with the Saints. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) questionable for Week 7, it looks like New Orleans is looking for potential depth options at running back.

Panthers' Travaris Cadet: Suits up once in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet recorded 17 yards on 11 rushes and five yards on one reception while only appearing in one game in 2018.

Cadet signed with the Panthers in the second half of the season but didn't play until Week 17, when the team was out of the playoff hunt. His 1.5 yards per carry made for an unimpressive performance overall. Cadet turns 30 next month and isn't likely to see anything more than a depth or special-teams role in 2019.

Panthers' Travaris Cadet: Inactive in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Lions.

As expected, the recently signed running back will be out of uniform in his first opportunity with the Panthers. Cadet is expected to have a third-down/change-of-pace role in coming weeks behind starter Christian McCaffrey and backup Cameron Artis-Payne.

Panthers' Travaris Cadet: Likely won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said Thursday that he assumes Cadet will be inactive for Sunday's game against Detroit, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday after the team decided to waive fellow running back C.J. Anderson. As evidenced by this news, Cadet might need some time to learn the playbook before he suits up in game action. If Cadet doesn't suit up Sunday, Cameron Artis-Payne will be in line for the reserve role behind bell-cow back Christian McCaffrey.

Panthers' Travaris Cadet: Lands in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Cadet's place on Carolina's 53-man roster comes following the team's decision to waive veteran running back C.J. Anderson. Christian McCaffery remains the Panthers' clear bell-cow runner, so Cadet appears in line for a reserve role alongside Cameron Artis-Payne.

Travaris Cadet: Loses out on roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet was part of Saturday's roster cutdown, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports.

Cadet was in good standing for much of the summer, but Marcus Murphy had a great preseason and leapfrogged all the fringe running backs, leaving the Bills to choose Taiwan Jones over Cadet for the last spot. Cadet's a versatile player so we'd be surprised if he didn't end up with another team, with the Bills being a possibility as well if injuries strike.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Battling for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet rushed six times for 73 yards -- including a 44-yard run -- and caught one of five targets for seven yards during Thursday's preseason game against Chicago.

A surging Marcus Murphy didn't play in the game, leading most to believe he's a lock for a roster spot along with LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory. That would leave Cadet in a battle with Taiwan Jones for a final spot if the Bills keep four running backs to go with fullback Patrick DiMarco. Cadet probably offers more than Jones offensively and perhaps helped his case Thursday, but the latter is a better special teams player. There's a good chance one of the two is no longer a Bill come Saturday.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Getting return work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (ankle) and Taiwan Jones were the only Buffalo players to return kickoffs during minicamp, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Cadet dislocated his right ankle Dec. 24, but he recovered faster than expected and re-signed with the Bills in mid-March. While the team added Chris Ivory to serve as LeSean McCoy's top backup in 2018, Cadet's pass-catching ability and return-game contributions could earn him a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll compete with Jones, Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford for what likely will be two spots.

Travaris Cadet: Re-signs with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (ankle) is re-signing with the Bills.

Per ESPN.com's Adam Schefter, Cadet is recovering from the dislocated ankle he suffered on Christmas Eve faster than expected, and is already back to running at full speed. He'll likely still be limited at the offseason program, but it sounds as if he could reach full strength before training camp. Cadet will compete for a depth spot in a backfield that recently added Chris Ivory, potentially spelling LeSean McCoy on some passing downs. Cadet had 22 carries for 93 yards and 13 receptions for 93 yards on 16 targets in six games with the Bills last season.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Moved to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills placed Cadet (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Cadet dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Patriots and will undergo surgery Wednesday to address the matter, so his move to injured reserve was anticipated. Marcus Murphy was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move and checks in as the third-string running back behind LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Facing three-month recovery timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet suffered a dislocated right ankle in Sunday's 37-16 loss to the Patriots and will undergo a season-ending procedure Wednesday to reset the ankle, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cadet is expected to make a full recovery in 12 weeks, putting him on track to enter the offseason program healthy. The loss of Cadet, who has produced 186 total yards in six games with Buffalo this season, leaves Mike Tolbert as the top backup to LeSean McCoy.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Suffers fractured ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Consequently, Cadet won't play Week 17, with Mike Tolbert slated to back up top running back LeSean McCoy next Sunday against the Dolphins.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Carted off field Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet was carted off the field Sunday against the Patriots with a right leg injury, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports..

This one has the look of an injury that will cost the reserve running back some time, as Cadet was fitted with an air cast before being carted off. Mike Tolbert will now serve as LeSean McCoy's top backup for the rest of Sunday's game and quite possibly beyond.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Plays second fiddle to McCoy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet saw four carries for 24 yards and caught his only target during Sunday's win over Miami.

Teammate Mike Tolbert was a healthy scratch, leaving Cadet as the No. 2 behind bell-cow back LeSean McCoy. The starter was down for a few minutes after one carry; had that transpired into something worse, Cadet would have instantly become the main ball carrier for the Bills, at least for the rest of this contest. However, McCoy remains surprisingly durable given his 29-year-old body and the 10,000-plus yards of NFL tread on his tires, while the season is running out of time for insurance backs like Cadet to have any value.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Minimal role in Snow Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet, cleared from a concussion last week, played in Sunday's 13-7 win over the Colts, carrying the ball four times for just two yards while not getting targeted in the passing game.

Cadet was on the field for just four offensive plays, while Mike Tolbert, who had missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, saw 13 offensive plays and turned that into six carries for 32 yards. Cadet has provided some nice depth and versatility to the Buffalo offense since his midseason signing, but it looks like he'll settle into the No. 3 spot in the pecking order now that Tolbert's healthy again.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Cleared to face Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (concussion) was a full participant at Friday's practice and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Cadet made it through the concussion protocol quickly, progressing from non-participation Wednesday to limited participation Thursday before closing out the week with a full practice. He caught 12 passes over the past three games, but there may be a bit less backup work available with Mike Tolbert (hamstring) cleared to return.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Friday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Cadet missed practice Wednesday after beginning the week in the protocol, but he was able to get in a limited session Thursday, and it appears he will be able to get in at least the same level of participation at the Bills' final practice of the week. Regardless of how much he's able to do Friday, Cadet is expected to play in Week 14. He will work in a reserve role behind LeSean McCoy if he plays, but with fellow running back Mike Tolbert on track to return to action, he could see a decline in usage after Cadet averaged 8.3 touches over the last three games.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Limited at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (concussion) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Cadet is trending in the right direction in advance of Sunday's game versus the Colts, but if he is unable able to gain medical clearance for the contest, it does at least look like the Bills' Week 14 backfield will welcome back Mike Tolbert (hamstring).

December 7, 2017 11:44 AM
Bills' Travaris Cadet: Will practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cadet (concussion) is taking part in practice Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

It's unclear if Cadet will be a limited or full participant in the session, but his return to practice in any capacity Thursday means he's reached the fourth stage of the NFL's concussion protocol. Cadet will still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before getting the green light for Sunday's game against the Colts, but things seem to be trending in the right direction for the backup running back.

Bills' Travaris Cadet: Missing practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that Cadet (concussion) wouldn't practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Cadet remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, with his inability to practice Wednesday suggesting that he hasn't made much notable progress in his recovery. The Bills will wait and see if Cadet's symptoms clear up in time for Sunday's game against the Colts, but if the reserve running back is unavailable, Mike Tolbert (hamstring) would likely work as the top understudy to LeSean McCoy.
