Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Won't be available Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone confirmed that McLaughlin won't be eligible to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns, John Shipley of reports.

The Jaguars placed McLaughlin on the list Tuesday after he either tested positive for COVID-19 or came into close contact with somewhat who did. Whatever the case, McLaughlin apparently isn't on track to clear all protocols before Sunday, so the Jaguars intend to promote Aldrick Rosas from the practice squad to handle the team's kicking duties this weekend.

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Heads to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed McLaughlin on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

McLaughlin's placement on the list comes after he tested positive for COVID-19 or was deemed a close contact of someone who tested positive. If it's the latter case, he could have enough time to clear the NFL's protocols and play Sunday against the Browns. McLaughlin has served as Jacksonville's kicker for the past two weeks, making all five of his kicks (three field goals, two extra points).

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Supplies only points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin made his lone field-goal attempt during Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Steelers.

The 24-year-old converted from 41 yards out to cap Jacksonville's opening drive, which ended up being the team's only points of the afternoon against a strong Pittsburgh defense. The game against the Browns next week certainly provides a better matchup, but the inconsistency of the Jaguars offense severely limits any fantasy potential. McLaughlin has made both PATs and all three field-goal attempts through two games this season.

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Perfect in Jags debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin converted both field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Packers.

The 24-year-old performed well in his first game for Jacksonville, especially given the 20-plus mph winds Sunday at Lambeau Field. McLaughlin converted field goals from 52 and 31 yards, both of which gave the Jaguars the lead at the time. Aldrick Rosas is on the practice squad and will have his suspension lifted after next week's matchup with Pittsburgh, but McLaughlin should earn a longer look from Jacksonville if he puts together another strong performance.

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mclaughlin had his roster exemption lifted Saturday, moving him to the 53-man roster for Sunday's game versus the Packers.

McLaughlin is expected to be the Jaguars' starting kicker Sunday. The 24-year-old bounced around last season, playing for three different teams. He connected on 18 of 23 field-goal attempts (78 percent) and all 26 extra points in 2019, and he could remain as Jacksonville's kicker for the rest of the season with strong performances.

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Waiting to clear testing protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin isn't expected to join the Jaguars for workouts until Saturday while he waits to clear COVID-19 testing and screening protocols, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Jacksonville signed McLaughlin to its roster Tuesday, but because he's arriving from a different organization (Minnesota), he won't be permitted to take part in team activities for a few days. McLaughlin thus will miss each of the Jaguars' three practices this week, but assuming he arrives in Green Bay this weekend and clears the necessary protocols, he should serve as the team's kicker Sunday against the Packers. Punter Logan Cooke will practice placekicking and kickoffs this week in the event McLaughlin is unable to gain clearance for Sunday.

Jaguars' Chase McLaughlin: Set to kick for Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars signed McLaughlin off the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday.

McLaughlin won't immediately count against Jacksonville's 53-man roster while he completes COVID-19 testing and screening protocols upon joining a new organization, but the Jaguars expect to have him available to serve as their kicker Sunday in Green Bay. With Jacksonville recently shutting top kicker Josh Lambo (hip) down for the season, McLaughlin is likely to kick for the team for at least two games before potentially ceding his role to practice-squad member Aldrick Rosas (suspension), who will be eligible to rejoin the roster Week 12. McLaughlin saw action with the Colts, Chargers and 49ers in 2019, converting 18 of 23 field-goal attempts and all 26 of his extra-point tries.

Chase McLaughlin: Lands on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed McLaughlin to the practice squad Tuesday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Vikings will roll with placekicker Dan Bailey to kick off the 2020 campaign, as expected, with McLaughlin around as an emergency option. McLaughlin filled in admirably for Adam Vinatieri across four appearances with the Colts last season.

Chase McLaughlin: Loses competition with Blankenship
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts will waive McLaughlin, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

McLaughlin filled in for the injured Adam Vinatieri down the stretch last year, but he was beaten out for the Colts' 2020 kicking job by rookie Rodrigo Blankenship.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Slight setback in kicking battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodrigo Blankenship outperformed McLaughlin in Saturday's scrimmage, making six of seven field goals, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Blankenship made kicks of 33, 37, 41, 52, 56 and 57 yards and missed from 48. McLaughlin made four of seven kicks, converting from 33, 37, 41 and 57 yards and missing from 48, 52 and 56 yards. McLaughlin had performed better than Blankenship in the first scrimmage, so the battle for the placekicking job remains close. However, McLaughlin is still the favorite as a veteran since he made five of six field-goal attempts and all 11 PATs in his stint with the Colts last season.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Lead in kicking job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin was 8-for-8 in field goal attempts in Monday's scrimmage at Lucas Oil Stadium and appears to have a lead over rookie Rodrigo Blankenship, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Blankenship was 5-for-8 in field-goal attempts, with misses from 39, 44 and 53 yards. McLaughlin looks likely to win the job, but the team may not announce the starting placekicker until shortly before Week 1.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Performing well so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin has done well in the Colts' kicking competition thus far, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

McLaughlin is competing with rookie Rodrigo Blankenship to replace future Hall of Famer Adam Vinatieri ahead of the upcoming campaign. Despite being pitted against Blankenship, who joins the Colts after a prolific college career at Georgia, McLaughlin has helped mentor the undrafted kicker early in camp. According to coach Frank Reich, both players have fared well while being tested in a variety of ways thus far, so it'll be worthwhile to monitor whether one kicker gains a leg up in the coming weeks.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Receives extension from Indianpolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin signed a one-year extension with the Colts on Monday.

The 23-year-old served as the Colts' kicker for the final four games in place of Adam Vinatieri (knee), and it makes sense the team would like to keep him around since the veteran isn't guaranteed to stick around for a 25th NFL season. McLaughlin finished the season 18-for-23 on field goals and 26-for-26 on extra points between 11 games with the Chargers, 49ers and Colts.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Makes lone field-goal attempt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin converted his only field-goal attempt and all five extra-point attempts during Sunday's 38-6 win over the Panthers.

The 23-year-old made his only field goal during the third quarter as the Colts were seemingly in command of this contest from the start. McLaughlin is now 3-for-4 on field goals and 9-for-9 on extra points in three games since taking over for Adam Vinatieri (knee).

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Converts lone extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin didn't attempt a field goal and made a lone extra-point attempt in Monday's 34-7 loss to the Saints.

The game script kept McLaughlin from making a real impact in this blowout loss. The Colts opted to punt from the Saints' 39-yard line in the first quarter, and that would've been the only chance for McLaughlin to attempt a field goal, as they finished with just 205 yards of total offense. McLaughlin made two of three field goals, including a 50-yarder, in his Colts debut in Week 14, and he'll hope for more opportunities in this Sunday's matchup against the panthers.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Solid in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin connected on two of three field goals and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Buccaneers.

McLaughlin nailed field goals from 50 and 19 yards, but he missed one from 47. This is the rookie's third team of the season, but it should be his last move -- McLaughlin is expected to retain his starting kicker role with the Colts for the foreseeable future, as Adam Vinatieri is set to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Kicking for Indy in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin will serve as the Colts' kicker Week 14 against the Buccaneers after Adam Vinatieri was ruled out with a knee injury, Mike Wells of reports.

As anticipated, McLaughlin will step in to kick for his third different team this season after Vinatieri's knee injury prevented him from practicing Thursday and Friday. The Colts haven't yet determined if Vinatieri will be available again this season, as coach Frank Reich said Friday that the veteran is viewed as week-to-week, per Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Likely to kick in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLaughlin is expected to serve as the Colts' kicker Week 14 against the Buccaneers after Adam Vinatieri (knee) expressed doubt about his availability for Sunday's game, Mike Wells of reports. "I don't have an answer," Vinatieri said, when asked Thursday about his status for Week 14 and the rest of the season. "I don't know. We'll see how [the injured knee] feels [Friday] and the next day and the next day."

After experiencing increased discomfort in his left knee, Vinatieri was listed as a limited practice participant on the Colts' first injury report of Week 14, prompting Indianapolis to put in a waiver claim for McLaughlin later that day. Vinatieri underwent an MRI on Thursday, but the Colts are still awaiting the results of the tests before commenting on his availability moving forward. Given that the 46-year-old has already missed a total of 14 kicks (eight field goals, six extra points) and is now in shaky health, McLaughlin could end up holding the job the rest of the season even if Vinatieri's health improves. Though he's been cut by the Chargers and 49ers this season, McLaughlin has been effective during his time with both squads, converting 13 of 17 field-goal tries and all 15 of his extra-point attempts.

Colts' Chase McLaughlin: Claimed by Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts claimed McLaughlin off waivers from the 49ers on Wednesday.

The move comes after veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday. McLaughlin previously kicked for the Chargers and 49ers this season, hitting 13 of his 17 field-goal attempts and all 15 of his extra-point tries across seven games.

Chase McLaughlin: Let go by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers waived McLaughlin on Tuesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

McLaughlin filled in for Robbie Gould in three contests for San Francisco, converting an admirable seven of eight field-goal tries and all eight extra-point attempts. Given his impressive performance, McLaughlin could be a candidate to draw interest elsewhere in the league should other clubs face kicker issues.
