Cardinals' Tanner Vallejo: Claimed by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (hamstring) was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Vallejo was waived by the Browns on Monday. The second-year pro played in 13 games for Cleveland, drawing one start and totaling 27 tackles on the year. He'll look to secure a role as a backup with Arizona in 2019.

Tanner Vallejo: Waived by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (hamstring) was waived by the Browns on Monday.

Vallejo appeared in 13 games for the Browns this season, playing 145 defensive snaps and 275 special teams snaps while totaling 27 tackles and a forced fumble on the year. He'll look to recover from the hamstring injury that forced him to end the season on IR and catch on with another team in 2019.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

The move means little for Vallejo individually, as he was already ruled out for Sunday's game at Baltimore. The Browns needed the additional roster spot in order to sign wide receiver Blake Jackson.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Baltimore, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Vallejo also missed last Sunday's game against the Bengals after cropping up with the hamstring issue late in the week. Ray-Ray Armstrong and D'Juan Hines are the primary options to fill in at weak-side linebacker in the season finale.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals with a hamstring injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Vallejo was added to the injury report Friday, so the specifics and severity of the injury remain unclear. D'Juan Hines and Ray-Ray Armstrong could be relied upon as reserve options at weak-side linebacker should Vallejo not suit up Sunday.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Vallejo sat out Sunday's loss to the Chargers due to a concussion but appears to be progressing well in his recovery. The rotational linebacker is trending toward playing against the Buccaneers in Week 7.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Ruled out Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Vallejo entered the concussion protocol Thursday and did not practice the rest of the week, so him being ruled out is unsurprising. Genard Avery and D'Juan Hines should serve as reserve weak-side linebackers behind Christian Kirksey.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo entered the NFL's concussion protocol and was unable to practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's unclear if the Boise State product picked up the head injury in the Week 5 win over the Ravens or at Wednesday's practice. Either way, he'll have to pass through all five phases of the protocol before gaining clearance to play. If Vallejo is deemed good to go for Sunday's game against the Chargers, he would likely be limited strictly to special teams duty.

Browns' Tanner Vallejo: Claimed by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo was claimed off waivers by Cleveland, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Vellejo was recently waived by the Bills as part of roster cutdowns, but he'll now join a Cleveland linebacking corps in need of depth after the release of Mychal Kendricks.

Tanner Vallejo: Cut by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills have released Vallejo, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkk reports.

Vallejo, the team's sixth-rounder in 2017, was losing the battle to veteran Julian Stanford to be the backup middle linebacker to starter Tremaine Edmunds, and even a minor injury to Stanford couldn't save him. He'll look for a depth/special teams role elsewhere.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: More opportunity lies ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo's teammate Julian Stanford is listed as week-to-week with a nose injury suffered during Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Vallejo has been competing with Stanford for the backup middle linebacker spot -- behind first-rounder Tremaine Edmunds -- all during training camp, but Stanford's injury gives Vallejo, a second-year pro, a chance to run with the job. Vallejo is under no consideration to be a starter, but Stanford's injury likely cements his spot on the team, at least to start the season.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (knee) practiced without limitations Friday and is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

Even though he's healthy, the rookie linebacker will be hard-pressed to find playing time behind Lorenzo Alexander and Ramon Humber, who combined for 18 tackles in Week 1. Expect to see Vallejo on special teams and select defensive packages.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Out Sunday vs. Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (knee) will not play in Sunday's season opener against the Jets, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Vallejo has been out with the injury since he had his knee scoped a few weeks ago, and after failing to put in any time at practice this past week, he'll be held out of Sunday's contest. He should be considered week-to-week going forward.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Misses practice again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (knee) didn't take part in Thursday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

The Bills will see if Vallejo can get back on the field Friday, but after back-to-back days on the sideline, it's looking like he could be unavailable for the season opener Sunday against the Jets.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Will sit out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Vallejo made the team as a sixth-round rookie, but it's unclear if he'll heal up in time to make his NFL debut in Week 1 against the Jets.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Will not play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, The Buffalo News reports.

Vallejo recently had his knee scoped and is considered week-to-week. It's a tough blow for the rookie sixth-round pick, as he's fighting for a roster spot at backup linebacker and on special teams.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Leaves preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vallejo left Thursday's preseason opener against the Vikings with a shoulder injury and will not return, Mike Rodak of reports.

Vallejo is a rookie sixth-rounder who's adept at special teams, so we'll see if this hinders his quest to make the final roster.

Bills' Tanner Vallejo: Picked by Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills selected Vallejo in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 195th overall.

The former Boise State Bronco was productive when healthy, but injuries nagged him his senior year. A wrist issue cut his season short in 2016, which is a concern given that Vallejo's size (6-1, 228) is already on the smaller side for an NFL linebacker. Still, Vallejo plays with a high motor and could be a contributor on special teams for the Bills.
