Redskins' Richard Rodgers: Lands in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers signed a contract with the Redskins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rodgers was added to the roster by the Eagles in Week 16 of last season, logging eight total offensive snaps over the final two games. In the absence of Jordan Reed, there seems to be no clear No. 1 option at tight end for Washington heading into 2020. Rodgers will battle Jeremy Sprinkle and Logan Thomas for snaps next campaign, although the team could also address the position in the draft.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Gets action at end of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers played eight offensive snaps over two games in 2019, including the Eagles' postseason loss to the Seahawks.

Rodgers started the season on injured reserve due to a foot injury, but he was waived with an injury settlement in September and became a free agent. The 28-year-old tight end rejoined the team in December while Zach Ertz dealt with a rib injury, but Rodgers was used mainly in a run-blocking role in his limited snaps. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March, and if he sticks around with the Eagles, a similar reserve role awaits him.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Joins Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers signed with Philadelphia on Tuesday.

With Zach Ertz fracturing a rib in Week 16, the team was in need of depth behind Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins at tight end. Rodgers was waived by the team with an injury settlement earlier this season and has yet to see NFL action in 2019.

Richard Rodgers: Hits waivers with settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Rodgers (foot) from IR with an injury settlement Wednesday.

Rodgers wasn't able to stay healthy through the preseason, and he wasn't expected to have a major role in the offense anyway with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert around. If he clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with any team once healthy.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Rodgers (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Rodgers suffered the injury during joint practices with the Ravens on Aug. 19. Regardless of his health, it seemed unlikely that the former Packer was going to see much playing time anyway, what with Dallas Goedert (calf) and fantasy stud Zach Ertz listed ahead of him on the depth chart. Rodgers won't count against the Eagles' roster limit, allowing them a little flexibility as the deadline for roster cuts draws closer.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Out with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is expected to be sidelined multiple weeks with a foot injury, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Rodgers sustained the injury during Monday's joint practice with the Ravens and left the sideline via a cart. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but a multi-week timetable at this point in the preseason puts him in doubt for Week 1.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Receives medical testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (lower leg) is undergoing more tests Tuesday, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Rodgers suffered an apparent lower left leg injury during Monday's practice, the severity of which caused him to be carted off the field. It remains to be seen whether the No. 3 tight end will miss significant time due to injury.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Nursing lower leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers suffered a lower left leg injury Monday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

Rodgers was carted off the field during Monday's practice after having missed the previous two weeks due to a foot issue. The severity of Rodgers' injury remains unknown at this time. If Rodgers were to miss significant time, it would allow Joshua Perkins, Will Tye and Alex Ellis to compete for the No. 3 tight end role.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Leaves practice on cart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was carted off the practice field Monday, Tim McManus of reports.

The nature and severity of Rodgers' injury remain undisclosed at this time. The veteran tight end missed time due to a foot injury previously in training camp, and it remains to be seen whether his current injury is related. If Rodgers were to miss significant time, Joshua Perkins, Will Tye and Alex Ellis would compete for the No. 3 role behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert (calf).

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Absent Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was absent at Saturday's practice due to a foot injury, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Rodgers evidently picked up the injury earlier this week, as there was no indication the veteran tight end was hurt prior to Saturday. Considering the team listed Rodgers as "day-to-day" in its pre-practice injury report, it's fair to suggest the 27-year-old isn't expected to miss much time.

Richard Rodgers: Staying with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers signed a two-year contract with the Eagles on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Eagles have been among the league leaders in using two- and three-tight end packages under head coach Doug Pederson, so the third tight end on the roster is more important than usual in Philadephia than other places. Rodgers' return to the Eagles could therefore be of importance in fantasy should something happen to Zach Ertz or Dallas Goedert in 2019.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Finishes season with one reception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers appeared in seven games during his first season in Philadelphia, finishing with one reception for seven yards.

Rodgers was expected to battle rookie Dallas Goedert for the top backup job behind Zach Ertz, but a preseason knee injury undermined the veteran's efforts. By the time Rodgers returned to availability mid-season, Goedert had firmly entrenched himself as the No. 2 tight end. Rodgers never played more than 13 offensive snaps in any of his contests and will now test his luck in free agency this offseason.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Activated from injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles activated Rodgers (knee) from injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of reports.

Though he only resumed practicing with the Eagles this week after being moved to IR in early September following a preseason knee injury, Rodgers' performance in those sessions apparently made the team confident he was ready for game action. He'll assume the roster spot and depth-chart position of third-string tight end Joshua Perkins (knee), who shifted to IR in a corresponding move. Rodgers will have a tough time seeing snaps on offense so long as the team's top two tight ends, Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, both remain healthy.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Could be available Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Rodgers (knee), who was cleared to practice a day earlier, could be reinstated from injured reserve ahead of this weekend's game against the Saints, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Rodgers has been sidelined since Aug. 16 after injuring his knee in a preseason contest with New England, resulting in his placement on IR ahead of Week 1. The Eagles labeled Rodgers as week-to-week at the time, and there haven't been any reports suggesting he required anything more than rest and rehab to overcome the injury, so the tight end may not need as much practice time to get back to full speed as most players that are designated to return from IR. If cleared to play Sunday, Rodgers would offer the Eagles a quality depth option behind Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. Joshua Perkins, who has served as the Eagles' third tight end for most of this season, came out of the Week 10 loss to the Cowboys with a knee injury and will miss "significant time," according to Pederson, leaving Rodgers with a clear path to the No. 3 role.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Designated to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles cleared Rodgers (knee) to practice Tuesday, opening a 21-day window in which to activate the tight end from injured reserve, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Sidelined since injuring his right knee in preseason Week 2, Rodgers is entering the final stages in a quest to make his Eagles debut. With fellow TE Zach Ertz embedded as the team's clear-cut top pass catcher and rookie Dallas Goedert a more than competent blocker, Rodgers may find snaps difficult to come by once he's cleared to play. However, Rodgers could make an impact in the red zone after averaging 6.5 targets per season in the region during four years with the Packers.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Rodgers has been dealing with the knee injury since the team's second preseason game against the Patriots and was last seen a few days ago wearing a knee brace after the preseason finale. If healthy, Rodgers would have likely served as the Eagles' No. 3 tight end this season, so the team can afford to leave him on injured reserve this season. Rookie Dallas Goedert is now comfortably slotted as Philly's No. 2 tight end.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Wearing leg brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (knee) was seen wearing a leg brace following Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Rodgers suffered the knee injury during the second preseason game against the Patriots and clearly isn't quite ready to return. Second-round rookie Dallas Goedert appears to have the No. 2 tight end job secured with Rodgers apparently still week-to-week with the knee issue.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is "week-to-week" after suffering a knee injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

The Eagles have a preseason game Thursday against the Browns, so it's unlikely Rodgers will be ready in time. The goal will be to get him back for the season opener Sept. 6 against the Falcons. Rodgers is vying for a backup role behind Zach Ertz, but the Eagles selected Dallas Goedert in the second round of April's draft, so the competition is stiff. Rodgers caught one pass for 17 yards in Thursday's game before exiting with his injury, while Goedert made three catches for 57 yards.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Injures knee Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers won't return to Thursday's game against New England after suffering a knee injury.

Rodgers caught a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game before going down with the injury. It's unclear what the severity of his knee issue is at this time. Look for Billy Brown and Joshua Perkins to get some extra reps with Rodgers out.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Back at practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

It's worth noting that the Eagles are practicing without full pads Tuesday, so it's possible Philadelphia could still exercise caution with the tight end when the team returns to a full practice. Regardless, Rodgers being back on the practice field is certainly a good sign for his health.
