Palepoi (undisclosed) was released by the Bills on Thursday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports
Palepoi missed practice the past two days due to an unknown issue. His absence will lessen the competition for the Bills' depth defensive tackle roles, with Tyrunn Walker, Rickey Hatley and Albert Havili all candidates to see some extra reps with Palepoi gone.
Palepoi missed practice Thursday for an undisclosed reason, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Palepoi's absence marks his second consecutive practice missed., the reason being still unknown. Should he be sidelined for an extended period of time, Palepoi could wind up jeopardizing his chances of earning a roster spot.
Palepoi re-signed with the Bills on Sunday.
Palepoi was released by the Bills in late July after signing with the team in April. While he is now back with the team, he's still far from a lock to make Buffalo's final roster, though with starter Kyle Williams currently out with a knee injury at least Palepoi will get another chance to make an impression.
Palepoi was released by the Bills on Wednesday, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic Buffalo reports.
Palepoi latched on with the Billls in April after an underwhelming season with the Chargers in 2017. Now a free agent, the Utah product will search for another team to play for in advance of the 2018 campaign.
Palepoi signed a one-year contract with the Bills on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Palepoi was suspended for Week 1 of last season before serving as a depth option on the Chargers' defensive line for the remaining 15 games. He racked up just 24 total tackles in Los Angeles in 2017 and will likely take on a limited defensive role once again in Buffalo this year.
Palepoi was reinstated from the reserve/suspended list Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
After serving three games of a four-game suspension at the end of the 2016 season, Palepoi was reinstated after sitting out Week 1. He projects to provide depth on the Chargers' defensive line going forward.
Palepoi (suspension) signed a one-year deal Monday to remain with the Chargers.
Palepoi provides value as a reserve defensive lineman for the Chargers, who credited him with nine quarterback hits last season, marking the third-most on the team. After violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, however, Palepoi missed San Diego's final three games last year and will be required to sit out Week 1 of this year. Once eligible to return, Palepoi figures to return to his usual depth role.
Palepoi will not be tendered by the Chargers, Michael Gehlken reported on Thursday.
Palepoi rarely factored in with the Chargers after catching on with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2014. The 26-year-old will still need to serve one game of his four-game suspension that was issued near the end of last year should he play again in 2017.
Palepoi has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
With the suspension, the 25-year-old will miss the rest of the regular season. Through two seasons, the reserve defensive lineman has accumulated 29 tackles and recovered a fumble.
The Chargers announced Monday that defensive lineman Tenny Palepoi, who played in all 16 games as a rookie, is out for the season with a fractured foot, per the team.
Palepoi was placed on the Reserved-Injured list, effectively ending his season. The undrafted player from Utah was one of the Chargers' biggest surprises last season, registering four tackles for loss last season.
"He's made the most out of every single opportunity he's had," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "He had an outstanding year last year, and it sucks to be honest with you."
Chargers defensive lineman Tenny Palepoi suffered a fracture to his foot during Saturday's practice, sources told The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Palepoi had to be carted off the field after sustaining the injury. He is expected to need two months to recover from the injury. Palepoi produced 16 tackles in 16 games last season.
