Redskins' Jerome Cunningham: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins placed Cunningham (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

Cunningham injured his knee in Sunday's victory over the Dolphins and was seen on crutches the following day. There is no official word on what the injury is, but he is now set to spend the remainder of the season on IR unless he and the Redskins can come to terms on an injury settlement.

Redskins' Jerome Cunningham: Wearing knee brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham (knee) is on crutches and wearing a knee brace Monday, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.

Cunningham was forced out of Sunday's win over the Dolphins in the fourth quarter. His status for Week 7 against the 49ers is unclear at this time. With Vernon Davis (concussion) nursing an injury, Jeremy Sprinkle and Hale Hentges are currently the only healthy tight ends on Washington's roster.

Redskins' Jerome Cunningham: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

It's unclear how Cunningham suffered the injury, but he was forced to the leave the game in the fourth quarter, suggesting some doubt for his return to this game. With Cunningham sidelined, Hale Hentges is the only other healthy tight end behind Jeremy Sprinkle for the game.

Redskins' Jerome Cunningham: Heading to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham signed a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday.

Cunningham spent the last three weeks of 2018 with the Lions and registered one target while playing 53 offensive snaps. The 28-year-old hasn't recorded a catch since 2015 and figures to fill a depth role in Washington.

Lions' Jerome Cunningham: Role grows down the stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham logged 29 offensive snaps but was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's season finale against the Packers.

Signed from the practice squad in mid-December, Cunningham played a larger role in the Lions offense week after week for the final three games of the season. This opportunity likely wouldn't have presented itself had Michael Roberts (shoulder) stayed healthy, but Cunningham nonetheless fared well as a third-string tight end who didn't log many receiving assignments. With both Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson (concussion) set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the league year, Cunningham -- who will be a restricted free agent -- seems to have decent odds of sticking around in Detroit for another season.

Lions' Jerome Cunningham: Earns first target in three years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 27-9 loss to Minnesota.

Cunningham saw increased snaps once Luke Willson (concussion) exited the game. It's possible he could earn more opportunities in the passing game if Willson remains out in Week 17, but it's unlikely the Southern Connecticut State product plays a large enough role to make a splash in fantasy circles.

Lions' Jerome Cunningham: Logs four offensive snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham logged four offensive snaps during Sunday's 14-13 loss to Buffalo.

Signed to the active roster just days earlier, Cunningham served as the clear No. 3 tight end behind Levine Toilolo (40 snaps) and Luke Willson (24). The sixth-year pro didn't draw any looks in the passing game and he doesn't figure to do so as long as Toilolo and Willson remain healthy over the final two games of the 2018 season.

Lions' Jerome Cunningham: Signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham signed a contract with the Lions on Tuesday.

Cunningham's spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of Michael Roberts (shoulder) on injured reserve. The 27-year-old tight end will provide depth behind Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson going forward.

Jerome Cunningham: Joins Lions' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham signed with the Lions' practice squad Thursday.

The 27-year-old tight end has eight receptions for 59 yards in nine career NFL appearances. Cunningham likely faces an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster for Detroit with a loaded depth chart at tight end.

Titans' Jerome Cunningham: Signs deal with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham inked a contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Turron Davenport of reports.

Cunningham replaces Phillip Supernaw at the tight end position on Tennessee's 90-man roster and shouldn't have too much trouble getting up to speed after spending much of last season on the team's practice squad. However, he likely faces an uphill battle once again to secure a 53-man roster spot.

Jerome Cunningham: Cut from Tennessee's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Titans released Cunningham from their practice squad Tuesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

The tight end failed to crack the Titans' 53-man roster out of training camp, but showed enough ability to earn a spot on the practice squad for the past three months. However, with the Titans ultimately electing to bolster their defensive-line depth with the signing of Johnny Maxey to the practice squad, Cunningham became expendable.

Jerome Cunningham: Cut by Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was cut by the Titans on Friday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

Cunningham has already been cut and claimed twice this calendar year, and he will have to look for work yet again. Ultimately, with the Titans already having solid depth at tight end, Cunningham was not a fit in Tennessee. He's had eight catches for 59 yards in his NFL career.

Titans' Jerome Cunningham: Awarded to Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Titans.

This marks Cunningham's third team this calendar year, as the tight end was once waived by the Giants before getting the ax from the Jets on Tuesday. In nine games last season, the Southern Connecticut State product caught just eight passes for 59 yards. Now in Tennessee, Cunningham will provide depth behind Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, and Craig Stevens.

Jets' Jerome Cunningham: Claimed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Jets after being released by the Giants, ESPN reports.

The 24-year-old Cunningham has eight receptions for 59 yards in nine career NFL appearances. He'll merely be competing for a backup role with his new team.

Giants' Jerome Cunningham: Released Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was released by the Giants on Thursday.

The Giants need to make room for undrafted free agents, and Cunningham likely would have entered camp no higher than fourth on the depth chart. He has eight catches for 59 yards in nine NFL appearances.

Giants' Jerome Cunningham: Signs exclusive rights tender with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham has agreed to an exclusive rights tender with the Giants, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cunningham won the No. 3 tight end job early on in the 2015 season, but didn't start playing a legitimate role until Daniel Fells and later Larry Donnell went down with injuries. Earning his first snaps as a professional, Cunningham caught eight of 16 targets for 59 yards on 186 offensive snaps, hinting that the Giants are probably bringing him back to fill a run-blocking instead of a pass-catching role. Furthering that notion is the emergence of fellow tight end Will Tye as an effective pass-catcher for the Giants late in the 2015 season. Even with Fells now out of New York, Cunningham will probably fulfill a role on special teams and in the run game in 2016, while taking a back seat to Donnell and Tye in the pass game. This doesn't bode well for his fantasy outlook in standard leagues.

Giants' Jerome Cunningham: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was promoted to the 53-man roster Thursday, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Cunningham played one game for the Giants earlier in the year in which he caught one pass for three yards. He, along with fellow tight end Will Tye, will provide extra insurance with starter Larry Donnell (neck) questionable for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay.

Jerome Cunningham: Waived by the Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived Cunningham Sunday.

Due to Prince Amukamara's injury, the team needed more corner back depth, so they promoted Brandon McGee from the practice squad.

New York Giants' Jerome Cunningham Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants tight end Jerome Cunningham (knee) is inactive for the Week 4 game against Buffalo.

Cunningham and Daniel Fells did not travel with the team. As a result, the Giants' tight end depth will suffer, although Larry Donnell could end up seeing a few more targets.

Giants announce inactives
by Larry Hartstein |

The Giants declared linebacker Devon Kennard (toe), wideout Corey Washington, cornerback Jayron Hosley, offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Eric Herman, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton and tight end Jerome Cunningham inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
