Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: No offensive snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike logged 19 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 41-33 loss to the 49ers.

The converted safety didn't see any snaps on offense. Instead, Igwebuike filled multiple roles on special teams where his biggest impact came at kick returner.

Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Secures roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike secured a spot on the Lions' initial 53-man roster, Kyle Meinke of reports.

The converted safety apparently showed enough promise to make the team over Dedrick Mills and Craig Reynolds. While Igwebuike won't see many touches on offense unless Jamaal Williams or Jermar Jefferson joins D'Andre Swift (groin) on the injury report, Igwebuike should contribute on special teams right away.

Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Scores again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike rushed seven times for 25 yards and one touchdown during Friday's preseason loss to the Colts. He also gained 90 yards on three kickoff returns.

Continuing to improve as a running back after converting from safety this offseason, Igwebuike seems to be making a solid case for a potential No. 4 job at running back behind D'Andre Swift (groin), Jamaal Williams and Jermar Jefferson. It helps that he fared better as a kick returner than Craig Reynolds (24 yards on one return) did.

Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Finds end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike rushed seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown while catching his only target for four yards during Saturday's preseason loss to the Steelers.

Igwebuike was bottled up on most of his attempts, but he showed some burst on an eight-yard touchdown run to start the fourth quarter. With each of D'Andre Swift (groin), Jamaal Williams and Jermar Jefferson likely to be rested during Detroit's preseason finale Friday against the Colts, the converted safety could see even more work on the ground alongside Dedrick Mills and Craig Reynolds.

Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Switching to running back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike is being moved to running back during the start of training camp, Kyle Meinke of reports.

After bouncing around the league as a safety since going undrafted in 2018, Igwebuike is not only getting a look at running back but kick returner as well. However, the Northwestern product is buried on the depth chart at both positions and Igwebuike remains a long shot to make the final roster out of training camp.

Godwin Igwebuike: Waived by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Igwebuike on Friday.

Igwebuike was considered a long shot at landing on the Eagles' final 53-man roster, and he has now been been let go early. After going undrafted in 2018, he ended up playing six games between the Buccaneers and 49ers, but only on special teams. He will likely need to play a similar role elsewhere if he finds a new landing spot.

Eagles' Godwin Igwebuike: Picked up by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles claimed Igwebuike off waivers from the 49ers on Tuesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Igwebuike was an undrafted rookie in 2018 and played six games between the Buccaneers and 49ers, playing strictly on special teams. The Eagles already have their starters at safety, so Igwebuike will look to carve out a place on special teams in Philly as well.

49ers' Godwin Igwebuike: Claimed by San Fran
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike was claimed off waivers by the 49ers on Tuesday.

Igwebuike was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday after being promoted from the team's practice squad earlier this month. He recorded one tackle as he played in one of two games while on the team. The 24-year-old brings some much needed depth to the safety spot with Jimmie Ward (forearm) on injured reserve, and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and D.J. Reed (heel) also nursing injuries.

Godwin Igwebuike: Let go by Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Igwebuike was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Igwebuike was initially promoted to the Buccaneers' active roster on Nov. 16, but he's now parted ways with the team. In his lone game with Tampa Bay, Igwebuike played 12 special teams snaps and recorded one assisted tackle. The undrafted rookie will now be subjected to league waivers and will be free to search for a depth role if he goes unclaimed.

Buccaneers' Godwin Igwebuike: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers promoted Igwebuike from their practice squad Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Igwebuike was promoted to the 53-man roster following Tampa Bay's decision to waive Demone Harris. The undrafted free agent will offer the Buccaneers' secondary some much-needed depth in the absence of starting strong safety Justin Evans (toe), who is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants.
