Colts' Isaac Rochell: Heads to Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell is signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Rochell was a solid rotational player with the Chargers over the last four seasons, and he'll now bring his talents to Indianapolis. Unless he's able to carve out a larger role with his new team, though, he'll remain off the fantasy radar in most IDP leagues.

Isaac Rochell: No tender from Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell won't be tendered by the Chargers, making him an unrestricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

This move is a bit surprising after Rochell started six games for the Chargers last season, though his 29 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 16 games overall were hardly irreplaceable production. The 2017 seventh-round pick shouldn't have trouble finding a suitor in free agency, though he likely is ticketed for a backup role wherever he lands.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Questionable tag for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Raiders.

Rochell was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but he upgraded to full participation for Friday's practice. He should be ready for Sunday, and both Rochell and Uchenna Nwosu will handle expanded workloads because Joey Bosa (concussion) is considered doubtful.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Receives tender from Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell was tendered as a exclusive rights free agent by the Chargers.

Rochell, a seventh-round selection of the Chargers in 2017, has appeared in 35 games (three starts) across three seasons. Last season he recorded 12 tackles (three solo) and a sack across 16 games as a rotational piece behind starters Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Plays 15 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Playing a limited role, Rochell was able to record a sack in a 30-10 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

Rochell remains a situational pass rusher within the confines of Los Angeles' defensive scheme. Because of his low usage rate, the 24-year-old remains largely an afterthought in IDP formats. That said, moving forward, if he continues finding his way to opposing quarterbacks, the Chargers will have no choice but to put more on Rochell's plate.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Recovers from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell (concussion) is active for Sunday's clash against the Lions.

Rochell had been questionable for this game after suffering a concussion in Week 1's win over the Colts but has made a full recovery. He's expected to fill in as a depth defensive end for the game and could see some snaps considering he's one of three active players at the position for the game.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Rochell appears to have sustained a concussion during Los Angeles' season-opening win over Indianapolis. He'll need to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before retaking the field.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Full go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell practiced in full Thursday after dealing with a ribs injury in the preseason.

Rochell was injured during Week 4 of the preseason, but he looks to be back to full health ahead of the Chargers' season opener against the Colts. He will provide depth to Joey Rosa at defensive end.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Staying with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers re-signed Rochell on Friday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Rochell suited up for three games in San Diego during his rookie season before earning a regular role with the club last year. He ended up appearing in all 16 games, including three starts, and accumulated 29 tackles (18 solo), five sacks and one interception. He currently projects to provide depth behind Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the edge in 2019.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Earns 1.5 sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell accumulated two tackles and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 20-6 win over the Raiders.

With Joey Bosa (foot) sidelined, Rochell has managed to rack up 4.5 sacks as his replacement. Bosa is expected to return at some point in the coming weeks, and that could drastically cut into Rochell's playing time.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Opportunities likely in Bosa's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell should be in line for an increased role with Joey Bosa (foot) ruled out for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Jack Wang of The Orange County Register reports.

Rochell earned the start in the season opener, recording four tackles (two solo) while playing 51 of 56 defensive snaps. Coach Anthony Lynn said Bosa will "probably be gone for the next couple weeks," keeping the window open for Rochell. It looks as though the 23-year-old will continue to play a heavy role in the Chargers' defensive line rotation while Bosa is sidelined.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell will start against the Chiefs on Sunday.

With Joey Bosa (foot) inactive, Rochell will serve as the Chargers' starting left defensive end. If the 23-year-old shows well in Sunday's season opener, he stands to earn an increased rotational role going forward.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Earning praise during minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell could be in position to earn a spot in the defensive line rotation, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rochell has been perhaps the biggest Chargers riser throughout the offseason, as it's been difficult to find anything but glowing opinions of the 23-year-old. With Corey Liuget (suspension) out for the first four weeks of the regular season, Rochell is expected to compete with Darius Philon and Damion Square for additional snaps at nose tackle or defensive end.

Chargers' Isaac Rochell: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell was promoted to the Chargers' active roster Tuesday, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Rochell has been on the Chargers' practice squad since getting waived prior to Week 2. He now will rejoin the team as a depth defensive end.

Isaac Rochell: Waived by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rochell was waived by the Chargers on Wednesday, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Chargers needed to make room on the roster for another defensive end in Tenny Palepoi, who is eligible to return from a suspension, so Rochell ended up being the casualty. There's a chance another team could claim Rochell off waivers, but if not, the Chargers may consider him for a spot on their practice squad.
