O'Daniel was unable to practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's divisional-round win over the Colts. Ben Niemann will likely be relied upon as a reserve inside linebacker in his absence.
O'Daniel sat out last week's divisional-round win over the Colts due to calf and ankle injuries, and continues to manage the latter. The rookie third-round pick may need to practice in some capacity this week for any chance of suiting up for Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Patriots. Ben Niemann likely will receive another slight uptick in rotational snaps if O'Daniel is unable to go.
O'Daniel was deemed doubtful heading into the weekend, so no surprise here. His absence figures to give Ben Niemann a slight increase in rotational snaps at linebacker.
O'Daniel (calf/ankle) is officially listed as doubtful for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Colts.
O'Daniel did not practice in any extent this week, and appears to be trending towards missing his first game of the season. Ben Niemann should benefit from a slight uptick in rotational snaps if O'Daniel is unable to suit up versus Indianapolis.
O'Daniel was held out of Tuesday's practice due to calf and ankle injuries, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
O'Daniel saw a decent portion of snaps over the last half of the season while operating as a backup linebacker. There's no indication to this point that his injury is severe, but if he's forced to miss Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Colts it'll likely mean a much larger workload for fellow backup Ben Niemann. O'Daniels' ability to practice the rest of the week will give a better indication of his status for Saturday's game.
