Michael Tyson: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Packers on Monday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

Tyson was placed on injured reserve last week due to an undisclosed injury, but the Packers ultimately decided to part ways with the third-year pro. If he can prove he's healthy, Tyson could try to sign on with another squad at some point this season.

Packers' Michael Tyson: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (undisclosed) cleared waivers Tuesday and reverted to Green Bay's injured reserve, according to the league's official transactions log.

The nature of Tyson's injury remains unclear. In any case, the third-year pro will remain on IR for the 2019 season barring an injury settlement. The 26-year-old will turn his attention toward getting fully healthy.

Michael Tyson: Cut loose by Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers waived/injured Tyson (undisclosed) on Monday.

Tyson's injury is unclear in both nature and severity, although Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes that the 26-year-old was "dinged up" in the Packers' preseason game against Oakland on Thursday. Tyson was originally claimed off waivers by the Packers in mid-May, but he now will have to focus on getting healthy and finding another opportunity.

Packers' Michael Tyson: Lands in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson was claimed off waivers by the Packers on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Tyson was waived by Houston last week to help clear the way for a number of other signings, but he won't hit the open market just yet after being claimed by Green Bay. Tyson's best chance of making the final roster will likely be as a special teams performer.

Michael Tyson: Let go by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson was waived by the Texans on Friday.

Tyson ended last season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in Week 17, and now, once he clears waivers, he will be back on the open market.

Texans' Michael Tyson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Tyson sustained the knee injury during Week 17's win over Jacksonville. In a corresponding move, Houston opted to sign safety A.J. Hendy.

Texans' Michael Tyson: Dealing with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson sustained a knee injury during Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jaguars.

Tyson suffered the injury in the second half and it remains unclear whether he was cleared to return. The reserve safety entered the week dealing with a concussion but was able to clear the concussion protocol in time to play Sunday.

Texans' Michael Tyson: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Tyson sat out last week's loss to the Eagles due to a concussion, but he now appears on track to clear the league-mandated protocol. If the second year pro is able to suit up versus the Jaguars in Week 17, he could see rotational defensive snaps.

Texans' Michael Tyson: Ruled out for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Tyson is still in the league-mandated concussion protocol and will remain sidelined versus the Eagles. The second-year safety has not seen a defensive snap during the Texans' last two games, so his absence is unlikely to impact fantasy teams.

Texans' Michael Tyson: Lands on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson was promoted from the Texans' practice squad to their active roster on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With the Texans having suffered a number of injuries to the secondary this season, Tyson will be brought in to bolster the team's depth at cornerback.

Seahawks' Michael Tyson: Logs two tackles Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (undisclosed) made two tackles (one solo) in Saturday's 24-14 preseason loss to the Chargers.

Tyson worked as a free safety, but he's a long shot to gain defensive snaps in 2018. Seattle is set at safety even if Earl Thomas pushes his holdout into the regular season.

Seahawks' Michael Tyson: No practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson (undisclosed) did not participate in Friday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Tyson prematurely left Thursday's practice with an unknown injury. When healthy, the 2017 sixth-rounder will compete for a depth role in the Seahawks secondary.

Seahawks' Michael Tyson: Leaves early with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson exited Thursday's practice early with an undisclosed injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

While Tyson's injury is unclear, the team hasn't expressed concern to this point about it being a severe issue that will sideline the safety long. With Earl Thomas seeking an extension or trade and Kam Chancellor (neck) potentially missing the 2018 season, Tyson has a chance to secure a depth role in the Seattle secondary if he can return from injury quickly and impress in the preseason.

Seahawks' Michael Tyson: Rejoins Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Tyson was waived by the Seahawks in early September and has since been a member of the team's practice squad. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of safety Kam Chancellor (neck), who was finally placed on injured reserve. Tyson should serve as a depth option in the Seahawks' injury-depleted secondary.

Michael Tyson: Waived by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson has been waived by the Seahawks, Tony Drovetto of the team's official site reports.

The fact Tyson wasn't waived with an injury designation implies the groin injury he dealt with in the preseason is no longer an issue. The sixth-round rookie will be free to sign elsewhere if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Seahawks' Michael Tyson: Sits out second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tyson is dealing with a pulled groin and didn't play in the Seahawks' second exhibition last week against the Vikings, Tony Drovetto of the Seahawks' official site reports.

It isn't clear how long the sixth-round pick will be sidelined with the injury, but if it keeps him off the field in the Seahawks' final two exhibitions, his chances of winning a 53-man roster spot would take a significant hit.

Michael Tyson: Headed to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks selected Tyson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 187th overall.

Tyson fits the mold of a ball-hawking defensive back that Seattle tends to target in the draft. He was productive during his career at Cincinnati and capped off his senior season with five picks and five pass breakups. Tyson may not have any off the charts numbers, but he's a tough safety that should help on special teams at the very least.
