Tarell Basham: Links up with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham signed a two-year, $6.5 million contract with Dallas on Thursday, Manish Mehta of New York Daily News reports.

Dallas fortifies its pass rush with Thursday's addition of Basham, as the franchise welcomes a player who quietly notched 13 QB hits and a career-high 3.5 sacks in 2020. The 27-year-old brings with him the experience of 11 starts and 32 appearances the past two seasons. While this transaction may not constitute a high-profile addition to the Cowboys' pass rush, it's a nudge in the right direction after Dallas tied for 22nd in sacks last year.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Disruptive force in Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham finished with five tackles (two solo), a sack, three quarterback hits and two forced fumbles in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Browns.

Basham consistently got into the Cleveland backfield and made quarterback Baker Mayfield cough the ball up twice. He now has a career-high three sacks and has tied last season's career-best total of 33 tackles with one game to play.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Kicks illness, ready for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (illness) has been cleared for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Basham missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, but he's back on track after practicing fully Friday. The fourth-year linebacker out of Ohio hasn't shown much promise as an IDP contributor, as he's posted just 11 tackles and a sack through six games.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Can't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (illness) was held out of the Jets' practice session Thursday, Rich Cimini of reports.

It has been confirmed that the 26-year-old is dealing with a non-COVID-related illness, perhaps shortening the length of his inactive stint. Basham has been playing an integral role for the Jets this season, with an average of 38.2 defensive snaps per game over the first six weeks of 2020. During a 24-0 Week 6 loss to the Dolphins, Basham picked up his first sack of the season. If he can't make it back in time for a Week 7 matchup against Buffalo, Blake Cashman would be in line for additional snaps at outside linebacker.

Jets' Tarell Basham: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (hip) will play in Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Basham logged limited practices throughout the week with the hip issue before ultimately being designated as questionable. Now healthy, the Ohio product will presumably take over his usual starting role at linebacker for Week 2.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have ruled Basham (hip) as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Basham logged consecutive limited practices to close the week, so this status is not all that surprising. His availability will presumably depend on how his hip is feeling closer to kickoff. Jordan Willis would likely see an uptick in snaps should Basham ultimately sit out.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (ankle) was a full participant Friday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of the team's Week 1 matchup against the Bills, Rich Cimini of reports.

Basham got in two limited practices earlier in the week prior to logging his first full practice Friday. His lack of an injury designation means he is set to take on a starting role at outside linebacker in the team's Week 1 matchup against the Bills. Basham managed 33 tackles, two sacks and an interception across 16 games in 2019.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Will miss a few weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (ankle) will be sidelined a few weeks, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Basham suffered an ankle injury during Tuesday's practice, and the results of his MRI have now revealed a multiweek recovery timetable. If the 26-year-old is able to retake the field in time for Sept. 13's opener against Buffalo, he stands to handle a key role in New York's linebacker corps.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is set to receive an MRI on the ankle he injured during Tuesday's practice, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The Jets' initial belief is that Basham is only nursing a sprained ankle, but the official results of his MRI may not be disclosed until later this week. Basham had a career-high 33 tackles with the Jets in 2019, and he could be in line to once again play a key role in the linebacker corps this season if healthy.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Posts 33 tackles in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham finished the 2019 season with 33 tackles, two sacks and an interception.

Basham played in all 16 games and spread his production around, recording no more than five tackles in any single contest. He's under contract for one more year as an inexpensive depth piece for the Jets.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Darryl Slater of reports.

Basham was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins due to a knee injury but appears to have fully recovered. The second-year defensive end appears on track for the Jets' matchup against New Orleans in Week 10 and is expected to play a rotational role.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Ruled out to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a knee injury.

Basham left the field due to a knee injury during his third game with the Jets. As long as the rotational defensive end remains sidelined, Henry Anderson will serve as the top backup behind Nathan Shepherd.

Jets' Tarell Basham: Claimed by New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday but he didn't even hit the open market. A knee injury prevented from Basham participating in the offseason as much as he would have liked, and his chances of sticking with the Colts suffered as a result. He'll now have a new opportunity in New York.

Tarell Basham: Let go by Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

Basham seemed on track to earn a key defensive role in Indianapolis, but he was sidetracked due to a knee injury all offseason and ultimately waived. The 2017 third-rounder will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Plays just nine snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bashim didn't have a tackle and played just nine snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Bashim, a third-round 2017 draft pick, looked to have a shot at starting role at the beginning of training camp, but a knee injury hurt his chances. It looks like he'll have a limited reserve role initially this season.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Off Tuesday injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) is not among the players listed on Tuesday's injury report.

Basham required multiple stitches for a minor knee laceration in late August, but it wasn't expected to cost him any regular-season action. His absence from the injury report furthers that notion.

August 31, 2018 04:56 PM
Colts' Tarell Basham: Knee injury minor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is dealing with a minor laceration on his knee that required multiple stitches, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Basham fortunately dodged any sort of serious injury and faces decent odds being ready for Week 1 if he survives final roster cuts this weekend.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Hurts knee Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham left Thursday's preseason win over the Bengals with a knee injury, but head coach Frank Reich said it was minor, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Basham had been nursing a knee injury during most of the preseason, so hopefully this isn't a significant setback.

August 26, 2018 10:52 PM
Colts' Tarell Basham: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham (knee) was active for Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Basham had been nursing a knee injury for a couple days prior to Saturday's contest, but it doesn't look like it was anything serious, as not only was Basham active, but he managed to appear in 28 defensive snaps for the Colts.

Colts' Tarell Basham: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basham is dealing with a knee injury, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

The specifics of the injury have yet to be released, leading to plenty of speculation. Given the nature of knee injuries, it'll be interesting to see what kind of further medical evaluations, if any, are needed. Basham entered the preseason expecting to compete for a depth role along the defensive line.
