Addae (calf) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's contest against Kansas City.
Addae was listed as questionable following his third straight DNP on Friday, but the Chargers ultimately decided to rule him out of the season finale. The veteran finishes the campaign with 21 tackles (13 solo), a half sack, two passes defensed and one interception in 11 games. Alohi Gilman is likely to start in Addae's place Sunday.
Addae (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Addae played a season-high 72 snaps in last week's win over the Broncos, but he was unable to practice this week. With Rayshawn Jenkins (ankle) also ruled out, Alohi Gilman is slated to start at safety if Addae can't play Sunday.
Addae (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
The 30-year-old was added to the injury report Friday with the hamstring injury and was considered questionable, but he's ready to go for Sunday's contest. Addae should fill a rotational role in the secondary for Los Angeles.
Addae was added to the injury report Friday due to a hamstring issue and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Addae presumably picked up the injury at practice, as he was a full participant all week until Friday. His status for Sunday will now depend on how his hamstring reacts to pregame warmups.
The Chargers promoted Addae to the active roster Tuesday.
Addae will provide depth to the Chargers' secondary that has lost S Derwin James (knee) for the year and CB Chris Harris (foot) for four to six weeks. The veteran safety played with the Chargers in Week 3 and stuck to special teams, but if more injuries pop up, he could carve out a role on defense.
The Chargers signed Addae to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Addae's six-year tenure with the Chargers ended in 2019 when he signed with the Texans. He had a rotational role with the Texans, posting 45 tackles, three pass breakups and two interceptions. With Derwin James (knee) out for the year and Rayshawn Jenkins (groin) day-to-day, Addae will serve as trusted veteran depth for the Chargers.
Addae has a workout scheduled with the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The longtime Charger spent last season with the Texans, recording 45 tackles (35 solo), three passes defensed and two interceptions across 16 contests. Although he dealt with a knee injury during the postseason, the veteran is back to full strength and looking to add secondary depth to a team in need.
Addae (knee) will not travel with the team for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.
Addae was limited at practice all week, but he will not be given the green light for Sunday's. In his absence, Mike Adams will presumably step in at free safety.
Addae (knee) is questionable for Sunday's playoff game at Kansas City.
Addae was limited at practice all week and appears on track to play this weekend. The 29-year-old seemed hampered by the injury last week and played only 35 percent of defensive snaps during the win over the Bills.
Addae (Achilles) is day-to-day, and coach Bill O'Brien said he'd know more later in the week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Addae was clearly hampered by this injury during Saturday's wild-card win over the Bills, as he left the field limping at times and played just 35 percent of defensive snaps. It's unclear if he'll be able to play through the injury again, and his practice status will likely be watched closely.
Addae (Achilles) has been cleared for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills.
Addae practiced in limited fashion all week. The team has ultimately given him the green light, and he figures to take on his usual workload at free safety assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Addae (Achilles) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff contest against the Bills.
Addae logged a trio of limited practices this week, which bodes well for his chances of suiting up to host the Bills on Saturday. If he were forced to miss any time, however, Mike Adams and A.J. Moore would be candidates to play increased roles on defense.
Addae (Achilles) was limited during Tuesday's practice.
Although Addae is battling an injury, he expects he'll be ready for Saturday's Wild Card playoff matchup against the Bills, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. The 29-year-old safety played 31 of a possible 62 defensive snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Titans, and he registered seven tackles.
Addae tallied nine tackles (six solo) during Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts.
Addae filled in as a starting strong safety while Justin Reid (concussion) was inactive, and he produced his highest tackle total since Week 5. Reid may return for Week 13's game against the Patriots, so Addae's IDP relevancy may be shortlived.
Addae recorded two solo tackles, one defended pass and one interception during Sunday's 26-3 win over the Jaguars.
Addae benefited from quarterback Gardner Minshew accumulating four turnovers. As long as Addae remains relegated to a backup role at free safety, he won't warrant fantasy consideration in IDP formats.
Addae had a team-high 11 tackles in Sunday's 53-32 win over the Falcons in Week 5.
Addae, who is a backup at free safety, had 10 tackles in 35 snaps on defense and one more on special teams. It was a big day in the tackling department for the Texans secondary. In addition to their role supporting the run, members of the secondary had to guard against 46 pass attempts (32 completions) by Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan. Four of the team's top five tacklers were cornerbacks or safeties.
Addae agreed in principle Wednesday with the Texans on a contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Addae hit the free-agent market when the Chargers cut him March 9, likely for the purpose of freeing up cap space. The Texans were able to swoop in and nab the accomplished safety, presumably at a more appealing price. The 29-year-old may not unseat Tashaun Gipson or Justin Reid for a starting role, but Addae should tentatively slot in as the team's third safety and potentially see time at linebacker during obvious passing downs.
Addae was released by the Chargers on Saturday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
It looks like yet another safety is expected to hit the open market, with Addae ranking among the most accomplished when it comes to his tackling acumen. Slated to make just over $12 million over the course of the next two seasons, the emergence of All-Pro safety Derwin James and the continual development of other secondary players such as Adrian Phillips, Jaylen Watkins and Rayshawn Jenkins made Addae expendable. The 29-year-old safety is likely better suited for a pseudo-linebacker role as opposed to a starting safety at this point in his career, but it's hard to suggest the six-year veteran won't find a team by the start of the 2019 preseason given his notable resume that includes 367 career tackles.
Addae compiled 13 tackles (seven solo) in the divisional-round loss to the Patriots on Saturday.
In a superlative-laden secondary, Addae was the odd man out, seeing the likes of Desmond King, Derwin James and Adrian Phillips all earn All-Pro honors, with the latter two earning trips to the Pro Bowl to boot. Recording 75 tackles despite playing a full 16-game season isn't exactly a sterling combination for the hard-hitting safety, but his impact on the defense likely went beyond counting stats: Addae's presence near the line of scrimmage opened up holes for the aforementioned players to secure tackles. The 28-year-old could leave this offseason thanks to an opt-out clause in his contract, but so long as he retains his starting strong safety spot, the partnership appears to be mutual for the foreseeable future.
Addae tallied eight tackles (six solo) in the 26-21 victory over the Bengals on Sunday.
Addae has seen his production slip this season with the emergence of Denzel James and Adrian Phillips, despite the fact the veteran safety has played in 98 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Generally considered one of the hardest hitting safeties in the NFL, Addae's worth might be more important to the Chargers than fantasy owners.
