Biegel re-signed with the Saints on Monday, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Biegel played 14 games with the Saints in 2018, logging 241 snaps on special teams and recording four total tackles. The 2017 fourth-round pick appears to be headed toward another season as a special teams asset and depth linebacker.
Biegel joined the Saints' active roster Friday, Amos Morale III of The Times-Picayune reports.
Beigel was promoted to the 53-man roster to provide depth at the linebacker position with Manti Te'o (knee) sidelined. The second-year player out of Wisconsin stands to see limited rotational snaps against the Falcons on Sunday.
Biegel posted 16 tackles (11 solo) over nine games during his rookie season with the Packers.
Biegel missed a good chunk of time after undergoing foot surgery in May, but he was still able to suit up for more than half of the games in his rookie season. The Packers will be hoping he can provide a boost to the team's pass rush in 2018.
Biegel (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday.
Green Bay's fourth-round pick has recovered from offseason foot surgery and seems set to make his NFL debut Monday night against the Lions. We'd expect Biegel to be worked in as a depth linebacker behind Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and Ahmad Brooks (back), though he could garner more playing time than expected if Brooks isn't cleared to suit up.
The Packers are expected to activate Biegel (foot) off the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to Monday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
With the team releasing defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois on Wednesday, the Packers have an open spot on the 53-man roster that will likely be reserved for the rookie linebacker, who has been sidelined all season after undergoing his second foot surgery in May. Biegel resumed practicing Oct. 18 and seems to have made positive progress in his recovery, so the Packers may be eager to see if he can aid their pass rush. It's not expected that Biegel will be in store for an abundance of snaps off the bat with Nick Perry, Clay Matthews and Ahmad Brooks ahead of him on the depth chart.
Biegel (foot) participated in practice Wednesday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Biegel's professional debut has been delayed by May surgery to repair a fracture in his foot, forcing him first to the preseason PUP list and then the regular-season version. While residing on those lists, he wasn't allowed to practice, but returning at his first opportunity to do so opens up a three-week window in which he can be activated to the 53-man roster. If he receives the all-clear, Biegel will provide depth at outside linebacker behind the veteran trio of Clay Matthews, Nick Perry (hand) and Ahmad Brooks (back).
The Packers have placed Biegel (foot) on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Biegel's recovery from offseason foot surgery has been a slow process, and he is not ready to practice just yet, so he will not open the regular season as part of the active roster. If Biegel is able to get on the field this season he will provide depth at the outside linebacker position for the Packers.
Biegel (foot) still has major challenges ahead in order to be ready to play Week 1, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Biegel is still eligible to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The worries of Packers' fans are justified when you take into account the history he's had with this foot, including the surgery last season. It's tough to see where he will stand in the depth chart since he only had a few healthy snaps in the offseason program.
Biegel (foot) will not practice the rest of the week or play in Saturday's preseason contest against Denver.
Ruling Biegel out of all activities four days in advance isn't a positive sign for his recovery. The Packers have yet to see what he can do for a full practice, and time is winding down on preseason. Biegel has had surgery on this foot twice in the past year, though, so the Packers are not in a hurry to rush him back, but a lot of fans are eager to see if he can make moves on the depth chart when he's healthy.
Biegel (foot) has yet to return to practice following his May surgery, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
There were some rumbles earlier this week that Biegel could return to the practice field, but coach Mike McCarthy shut those down Tuesday. As for now, the rookie linebacker is still on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list but has been making decent-sized strides. The expectation is that Biegel will be able to at least practice before the regular season, but nothing is a given at this point in time.
Biegel (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the beginning of training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Biegel underwent surgery on his foot back in May and he remains without a concrete timetable for a return. Packers' head coach Mike McCarthy said Biegel could be back in "a couple weeks," but he wouldn't get any more specific. The rookie linebacker is the main addition the team made to what is a thin position group. Though he'll have a learning curve after missing so much offseason time, Biegel could see a consistent role in the Green Bay defense once he's healthy and the regular season roles around.
Biegel (foot) might not be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
It seems more likely than not that Biegel won't be ready for the start of camp. The Wisconsin product has missed valuable practice time this offseason due to a couple of health problems, the first being a hand injury and the second being an aggravation of the Jones fracture in his right foot that sidelined him for the final two games of his collegiate career. The former never seemed to a be a serious issue in any case, but the latter could prove problematic with regard to Biegel's rookie-year availability if it lingers into the latter stages of the summer.
Biegel (hand) underwent surgery to correct a fracture in his foot, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Biegel missed time during the first day of rookie practice due to a hand injury, and it appears he has since aggravated the Jones fracture in his foot that forced him to miss two games at Wisconsin last season. The surgery will keep him out until at least training camp, and he's in danger of missing some time then as well. The team will be hoping he can recover quickly to contribute to the defense early on in the season.
Biegel underwent X-rays after injuring his hand during the Packers' first rookie practice Friday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
Biegel didn't have his hand wrapped after practice and called the injury minor. While the results of his X-rays will determine the specific extent of the ailment, it wouldn't be surprising if he were to miss Saturday's session because of it.
The Packers selected Biegel in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 108th overall.
Biegel is a versatile linebacker with the ability to play inside or out in a 3-4 scheme. He profiles as a starter for Green Bay in the near future after starting three years at Wisconsin. While Biegel should be a good player for Green Bay either way, playing outside would limit his IDP upside.
