by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders placed Kush (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday, Josh Alper of Yahoo Sports reports.

It's unclear how the 30-year-old suffered the injury, but it's likely he won't see the field during the 2020 campaign. Kush started the first seven games for the Browns last season, and he'll look to get healthy before earning a depth role next season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns released Kush on Monday.

Kush started the first seven games in 2019, but he lost the job to second-year pro Wyatt Teller in Week 9. The team has decided to let Kush go and save $2.075 million in cap space in 2020. The 30-year-old likely will vie for a reserve role with another squad.

Browns' Eric Kush: Logs snaps with first team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kush took all the first-team snaps at right guard during Friday's preseason loss to the Buccaneers, Anthony Poisal of the Browns' official site reports.

Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens confirmed that Kush will likely be the starter at right guard when the regular season opens. "There's always competition," Kitchens said. "I thought he did some things nice yesterday, but he's got to continue to get better. He's not a finished product by any stretch of the imagination. Eric will get the first shot of seeing what he can do, and so far, he's been doing very well. Not good enough yet, but he'll continue to get better to get there." He has outperformed Austin Corbett, a 2018 second-round pick, and earned the job.

Bears' Eric Kush: Competing for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kush is competing for a starting role at guard, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Bears are set at both tackle positions and Kyle Long is cemented in his role at right guard. With Cody Whitehair expected to secure the first-string job at center, Kush is likely competing with second-round rookie James Daniels for the final starting gig along the offensive line. Even if Kush doesn't make the cut, he should nonetheless hold down a significant rotational role during the 2018 season.

Bears' Eric Kush: Officially on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kush (hamstring) was officially placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Hoge of WGN reports.

This move was expected, as Kush tore his hamstring at practice. He was slated to be a swing player for the interior of the Bears' offensive line, so he would have served as a valuable presence backing up the currently injured Kyle Long (ankle). However, this injury does not figure to impact any of the Bears' skill players heading into the season.

Bears' Eric Kush: WIll miss 2017 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kush tore his hamstring and is out of the 2017 season, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Kush was slated to be a swing player on the interior of the Bears' offensive line, making him especially helpful while Kyle Long (ankle) works his way back to full health. For now, this injury won't impact the fantasy prospects for any of Chicago's skill position players, but the team lost valuable depth to the line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kush left practice early Sunday due to a tight left hamstring, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The severity of the injury is relatively unknown, but given how distant the regular season still is, the Bears may err on the side of caution. Kush projects to function as a utility lineman for Chicago this year.
