Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Officially lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs placed Charlton (lower leg) on injured reserve Saturday.

Charlton underwent successful surgery on his fractured right leg earlier this season. Coach Andy Reid has eluded providing a definitive timeline for Charlton, but it seems unlikely that the 26-year-old defensive end returns this year.

Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Faces extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton fractured his right leg during Sunday's win over the Panthers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Charlton's going to miss substantial time as he recovers from the injury he picked up in the first quarter. The Chiefs are expected to place him on injured reserve this week, and coach Andy Reid should reveal a more definitive timeline soon. Alex Okafor (hamstring) can return from IR following the Week 10 bye, providing dependable depth behind starting defensive ends Frank Clark and Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Forced out of Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Charlton appeared to get rolled up on his ankle while attempting to make a tackle in the first quarter and needed to be helped off the field. With Charlton sidelined, Mike Danna is the only healthy depth defensive end active for the game.

Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Back to full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Charlton didn't practice at all last week and predictably didn't play against the Broncos on Sunday, but it appears he's been cleared heading into a Week 8 matchup against the Jets. Charlton hasn't played more than 30 percent of the defensive snaps in any given game, but he's still managed to produce two sacks so far. He's slated to continue working in a situational role moving forward.

Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Out with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos with a knee injury.

The 25-year-old was unable to practice this week and won't be available for Week 7. Charlton has two sacks in five games and hasn't played more than 27 percent of defensive snaps, so it shouldn't be a major absence for Kansas City.

Chiefs' Taco Charlton: Lands in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

It did not take long for Charlton to find a home after getting let go by the Dolphins earlier this week. He led Miami with five sacks across 10 games (five starts) last season. His production did trail off toward the end of the season, which helps explain why the team opted to let him go and save roughly $1.8 million against the cap in 2020. The 25-year-old will now look for a fresh start with the newly crowned Super Bowls champs.

Taco Charlton: Parts ways with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins waived Charlton (ankle) on Thursday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton led the Dolphins with five sacks across 10 games (five starts) last season, after having been picked up off waivers from the Cowboys mid-September. Four of those sacks came in his first five games with the team, however, after which Charlton trailed off. Cutting the 25-year-old saves Miami roughly $1.8 million against the cap for 2020.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Manages five sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) recorded 21 tackles (14 solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles across 10 regular-season games with the Dolphins in 2019.

Charlton was waived by the Cowboys mid-September and quickly claimed by Miami, where he managed to settle into a better groove. Though an ankle injury kept the 2017 first-round pick from concluding the 2019 campaign, the year was an overall step in the right direction as he notched a career high in sacks. Charlton should benefit from a full offseason to develop in the Dolphins' system.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: No-go for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's divisional matchup versus New England.

It will be the second straight contest missed for the Michigan product due to the ankle issue. With Charlton sidelined, look for Avery Moss and Zach Sieler to see a slight increase in snaps at the rotational defensive end role.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Could play season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton missed Week 16 with the ankle injury but returned to practice as a limited participant this week. The 25-year-old figures to work in a rotational role Sunday if he's able to play.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Sitting out Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Bengals.

Charlton was a limited participant in Friday's practice, but coach Brian Flores had indicated he still expected the defensive end to play. However, Charlton's condition may have taken a turn for the worse, given his surprise inactive status.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Questionable Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton has an ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Charlton was absent from the injury report until appearing as a limited participant Friday, though coach Brian Flores said Charlton is still expected to play. The 25-year-old was a healthy scratch for Week 15, so it's not fully clear what role he'll be returning to, if healthy.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Surprise inactive Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Jets, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Charlton checks in as the Dolphins' leading sacker with five quarterback takedowns on the season, so the reason for his inactive status is a mystery, Beasley reports. First-round pick Christian Wilkins should see extra opportunity in Charlton's stead versus New York.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Notches strip sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton recorded two solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles.

Charlton's strip sack proved a key play in Miami's victory, forcing the Eagles to settle for a field goal on the Dolphins' 13-yard line. The 2017 first-round pick should be considered a sack-dependent option in IDP leagues, given that he has a low floor as a run stopper during contests he's unable to reach the quarterback.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Suiting up Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the Browns.

Charlton was able to get through a week of limited practices and will now officially make his return after missing the Week 11 tilt against the Bills. The active pass rusher will look to help the Dolphins contain Baker Mayfield, who boasts a three-game turnover-less streak heading into Sunday.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Charlton practiced as a limited practice participant this week to give himself a chance of suiting up Week 12. The 25-year-old was a game-time decision before ultimately being inactive last week against the Bills.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Inactive against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton (elbow) is listed as inactive Week 11 against Buffalo.

Charlton entered this contest as a game-time decision after practicing on a limited basis all week, but the third-year defensive end will ultimately be unable to give it a go. Look for John Jenkins and Christian Wilkins to be given all the reps they can handle on the defensive line as a result.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Deemed game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Charlton (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Bills, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Charlton has practiced in a limited capacity this week while nursing an elbow injury. The 2017 first-round pick has played at least 75 percent of snaps on defense in each of Miami's last five games, and he's accumulated four sacks since joining the team Week 3. If he is forced to miss any time, it will be a notable blow to the Dolphins' pass rush against Buffalo's solid offensive front.

Dolphins' Taco Charlton: Drops QB again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlton notched a sack in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Steelers.

Charlton now has four sacks in five games for the Dolphins, surpassing his previous career high of three, which took him 16 games for the Cowboys in 2017. A main part of Charlton's success is his consistent playing time, as he's marked above a 90-percent snap share twice for the Dolphins.
