Martrell Spaight: Hangs up the cleats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight was placed on the reserve/retired list Monday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Spaight's career comes to an end after four seasons in the league with the Redskins, Dolphins, Jaguars and Chiefs. The linebacker dealt with concussion issues throughout his time in Washington. He signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs in early January.

Martrell Spaight: Waived by Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight was waived by Jacksonville on Friday, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Spaight suited up for three games with the Jaguars since signing with the team Nov. 4, playing 32 special-teams snaps during that stretch. The 25-year-old linebacker will search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Jaguars' Martrell Spaight: Joins Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight agreed to a deal with Jaguars on Tuesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Spaight was waived by the Dolphins on Nov. 9 after failing to play a snap for the team. The 25-year-old linebacker has 105 tackles and one interception in his career, and will likely be solely a depth option at linebacker for the Jaguars.

Martrell Spaight: Let go by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight was waived by the Dolphins on Friday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Spaight did not play a single snap for the Dolphins this season and was waived to make room for Isaac Asiata on Miami's 53-man roster. If the four-year pro goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll be free to search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

Martrell Spaight: Inks deal with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight agreed to join the Dolphins on Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Spaight started six games for the Redskins in 2017 and will add needed linebacker depth after Chase Allen (foot) left Sunday's game. The four-year veteran posted 75 total tackles last season.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Finishes with 75 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight posted 75 tackles (45 solo) and two pass breakups in 15 games with the Redskins in 2017.

Spaight's third season was up-and-down but he finished on a strong note with 29 tackles over the final three games of the season. The inconsistency made him a difficult to trust IDP option, which included six games with two tackles or less. The 24-year-old is entering the final season of his rookie contract and could have more opportunities at inside linebacker with starters Zach Brown and Mason Foster currently unsigned for 2018.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ankle/illness) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants in New York.

Spaight has been productive at times during his third season, tallying at least seven tackles in seven of 14 appearances. With the team's leading tackler, Zach Brown (knee/Achilles), out of commission yet again, Spaight has a decent shot to post eight (or more) stops for a third straight game.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Questionable for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ankle, illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Spaight's only practice this week was a limited session on Friday, so his status for the season finale is truly up in the air. The 24-year-old has dealt with the ankle injury since late November but only missed one game, so he shouldn't be assumed as out before inactives are officially announced at 11:30am EST Sunday morning.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight was held out of practice Wednesday with an ankle injury and an illness.

Spaight has been nursing the ankle issue since late November, but has only missed one game as a result. The illness is a newer concern for the linebacker, but so long as he's able to return to practice in some capacity Thursday and Friday, Spaight will have a good shot at suiting up Sunday against the Giants. With inside linebacker Zach Brown (knee/Achilles) missing the Redskins' last two games -- and trending toward a third absence in Week 17 -- Spaight has picked up extra snaps and generated 16 tackles over that span.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Gets green light for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The ankle injury limited Spaight's participation in practice this week and resulted in him taking a questionable designation into Sunday, but he never seemed in serious peril of sitting out after playing through the issue last week. Look for Spaight to share snaps with Zach Vigil at the inside linebacker spot next to Zach Brown.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Inactive for Thanksgiving contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ankle) is listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This isn't much of a surprise, as Spaight was unable to practice all week. In his absence, expect Josh Harvey-Clemons and Zach Vigil to both receive healthy snap counts.

November 22, 2017 02:20 PM
Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Questionable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Giants.

Spaight was listed as a non-participant in each of the Redskins' three practice reports this week, which suggests he may be trending toward sitting out the Thanksgiving Day contest. If that's the case, Josh Harvey-Clemons or Zach Vigil would likely be called upon to start at the inside linebacker spot alongside Zach Brown (Achilles), according to Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Spaight turned in his most productive outing of the season in the Week 8 loss to the Cowboys with seven tackles across 53 snaps, but he came out of the contest nursing the shoulder injury. It doesn't look like it will prevent Spaight from taking the field Sunday, however, leaving the linebacker in line to see action on special teams and as part of sub packages on defense.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to a shoulder injury.

Spaight was limited by the injury in every practice this week. If he isn't cleared to play Sunday, Josh Harvey-Clemons could be in store for an expanded role.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Not on Wednesday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (ribs) wasn't listed on the Redskins' injury report Wednesday.

Spaight exited the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs but appears fully recovered after the team's bye week. The 24-year-old will likely resume his role as a rotational inside linebacker and special teams contributor if health prevails heading into Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Questionable to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight sustained a rib injury against the Chiefs on Monday night and is questionable to return.

Spaight typically serves as a reserve inside linebacker behind Zach Brown and Mason Foster. Will Compton (ankle) will likely see more snaps if Spaight is unable to return.

September 6, 2017 08:56 PM
Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (hamstring) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Spaight, who has been hampered by a hamstring injury throughout camp, appears to be back to full health. He will presumably back up Zach Brown and Mason Foster at inside linebacker to start the season.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Suffers hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

Spaight limped off the field and is still being evaluated by team doctors. Look for more updates to come.

Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (shoulder) was active for Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Giants.

Spaight continued to play through a nagging shoulder injury and now will have plenty of time to recover considering the Redskins' needed a victory over the Giants on Sunday in order to advance to the postseason.

December 30, 2016 03:05 PM
Redskins' Martrell Spaight: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spaight (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Giants.

Spaight has played through his shoulder injury for the past few weeks and likely will again on Sunday. Expect him to serve as a backup option at linebacker behind starters Mason Foster and Will Compton (knee).
