Teez Tabor: Lands in Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (foot) signed with the Bears' practice squad Wednesday.

Tabor was recovering from a Jones fracture in his foot back in July before he was cut by the 49ers. The 2017 second-round pick is fully healthy and will look to revitalize his career in Chicago.

Teez Tabor: Recovering from foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor, who was cut by the 49ers on Monday, is recovering from a Jones fracture in his foot, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Tabor expects to be ready for Week 1, though he'll first need to find a team. After flaming out in Detroit, the 2017 seventh-round pick spent much of 2019 on the San Francisco practice squad.

Teez Tabor: Cut loose by Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers cut Tabor on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 second-round pick never made an impact in Detroit and spent part of the 2019 campaign on San Francisco's practice squad. Tabor was released Monday to make room for veteran cornerback Jamar Taylor.

Teez Tabor: Joins 49ers' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Tabor to the practice squad Monday, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Tabor was waived by the Lions before roster cutdowns after missing all of the preseason with a leg injury. Now back to full health, the 2017 second-round pick will look to impress on the 49ers' practice squad.

Teez Tabor: Works out with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (undisclosed) had a workout with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 second-round pick was let go by the Lions at roster cutdowns after dealing with an unspecified injury in the preseason. Tabor had 42 tackles (36 solo) in 22 games with Detroit over his first two seasons in the league.

Teez Tabor: Cut by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (undisclosed) was cut by the Lions on Friday, Tom Pelissero of reports.

A second-round pick in 2017, Tabor's release comes after just two seasons and 22 games for Detroit. During that span, he totaled just 42 tackles (36 solo) and never defensed a single pass. He's still just 23 and could get a shot with another team that is willing to take a chance on the potential that made him a second-round pick in the first place.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Day-to-day with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor missed Friday night's scrimmage due to an unspecified injury, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

The specifics surrounding Tabor's injury are unknown at this time. "It will be day-to-day with him as he battles back," stated head coach Matt Patricia. "He works really hard. You just don't know. We'll see where it goes, but he's a tough guy. Tabor is a tough guy and he really wants to be out there."

Lions' Teez Tabor: Yet to live up to draft stock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor produced 28 tackles over 12 games in 2018.

Tabor is looking more and more like a bust after a 2018 season in which he was a healthy scratch on numerous occasions and has yet to defense a pass through 22 career games. It's unlikely the team gives up on the inexpensive 2017 second-rounder in advance of the 2019 campaign, but it's hard to imagine Tabor isn't on thin ice with the organization entering the offseason.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Tabor has been nursing a groin injury for over a week but appears to be nearing a full recovery. Barring any setbacks, Tabor appears on track to start against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers with a groin injury, Michael Rothstein of reports.

The extent of Tabor's groin injury is still unclear at the moment. If he's unable to continue, the Lions will likely clear things up after the game. As for now, Nevin Lawson could be asked to step in and fill the void.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Working with first-team defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor has worked with the first-team defense during all open practices thus far into the Lions' offseason program, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

A lot can happen between now and Week 1, but Tabor at least seems on track to secure the starting spot on the outside opposite 2017 first-team All-Pro corner Darius Slay. As long as he continues to hold off Nevin Lawson for the job, Tabor could receive quite a bit of attention from opposing signal callers in 2018 given the presumed likelihood that teams try to avoid Slay's side of the field.

Lions' Teez Tabor: In mix for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor is in the mix for the starting cornerback job opposite Darius Slay, Michael Rothstein of reports.

Tabor was brought along slowly during his rookie season after the Lions selected him in the second round of last year's draft. Some were even quick to label him a bust when he was frequently made a healthy inactive during the first half of the campaign, but Tabor's role expanded as the season went on, and the Florida product ultimately found himself in the starting lineup for the season finale with Nevin Lawson nursing a concussion. While Tabor was unable to finish that game after being knocked out with an arm injury of his own, there's been no indication that ailment is still a problem. It won't be easy, but the ascending cornerback will now have to compete with Lawson and the newly-acquired DeShawn Shead for the lone starting job available. In that very role last season, Lawson accrued 47 tackles and four pass breakups in 15 games.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Role expands as rookie season unfolds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor accrued 14 tackles over 10 games in 2017.

Tabor, selected in the second round out of Florida in 2017, was slow to acclimate to the professional game considering then-head coach Jim Caldwell frequently made him a healthy scratch during the first half of the campaign. However, the rookie slowly but surely carved out a bigger and bigger role as the season unfolded, ultimately earning a start by year's end after Nevin Lawson sustained a concussion. While it's unfortunate that an arm injury knocked him out of the season finale against Green Bay, Tabor didn't sustain any sort of fracture and isn't expected to be facing a long recovery, according to Nate Atkins of With Lawson set to hit free agency at the end of the league year, Tabor seems positioned to open the 2018 season as a starter opposite 2017 All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay, a role that could lead to high production if opposing teams avoid Slay's coverage.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Didn't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (arm) didn't return to Sunday's game against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Since the Lions have missed the playoffs, Tabor has completed his rookie season. The nature of his injury wasn't clear, so updates likely will be available soon regarding how the injury might affect his eligibility for offseason programs.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Injures arm Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers with an arm injury, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The rookie second-round pick has seen an increase in defensive snaps the last two weeks, recording nine tackles (eight solo). If he doesn't return Sunday, Jamal Agnew likely will fill in for the time being. Fantasy owners in IDP leagues should keep an eye on Tabor in the offseason, though, as the youngster could move up the depth chart to start the 2018 season.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Sets season high in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor recorded three tackles during Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Bears.

Tabor, the Lions' second-round rookie, has struggled to earn playing time this season but logged a career-high 44 snaps during Sunday's affair, with most of them coming in dime packages. His three tackles also represented a new personal best, bringing Tabor's season total to eight. It's unclear if this expanded workload will persist, but that scenario would seem especially likely if the Lions fall out of playoff contention.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Healthy scratch once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor is inactive for Monday night's game against the Giants.

Tabor, the Lions' second-round draft pick, is a healthy scratch for the second time in as many weeks. While it seems he's been slow to acclimate to the professional level, the Lions' respectable depth at corner is likely also playing a part in the team's decision to delay Tabor's professional debut.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Taken off NFI ahead of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (hamstring) was taken off the non-football injury list Saturday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

The rookie out of Florida will be ready for action when camp begins Sunday after being removed from the NFI. Tabor, a second-round selection, will be battling for a role behind Detroit's top two corners, Darius Slay and Nevin Lawson.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Placed on Active/NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (hamstring) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, the Lions' official site reports.

Tabor dealt with a minor hamstring injury earlier in the offseason, but the issue appears to be lingering for the 2017 second-round draft pick. He'll be able to return to the practice field once he's medically cleared.

Lions' Teez Tabor: Returns to OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tabor (hamstring) participated during Tuesday's OTA, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Tabor's hamstring injury was originally expected to keep him sidelined until training camp in late July, but he's already back practicing with the Lions as OTAs wrap up. The second-round pick snagged his first interception of the offseason program Tuesday over starting receiver Marvin Jones and has flashed additional signs of potentially providing the team's defense with another playmaker.
