Colts' Jordan Thomas: Heading to Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Tuesday.

The tight end has become a bit of a journeyman through his first three years in the league, logging stints with the Patriots, Texans and Cardinals. In the 2018 season with the Texans, Thomas recorded 20 receptions for 215 yards and four touchdowns. However, in the two seasons since, he has only logged two receptions.

Jordan Thomas: Waived by Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots removed Thomas from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and subsequently waived him, Mike Reiss of reports.

Thomas was claimed off waivers from the Cardinals earlier this season to shore up the Patriots' depth at tight end. Before landing on the list, he was consistently a healthy inactive, so the Patriots' decision to move on from him isn't surprising.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Goes to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

This provides an explanation for why Thomas was ruled out for Monday's game against the Bills. If he clears the necessary protocols, Thomas could return to the field for the season finale against the Jets.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Sitting out Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (not injury related) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Bills, Doug Kyed of reports.

It's unclear exactly why Thomas won't play in the Week 16 divisional bout. The third-year tight end is often a healthy scratch, so it's possible that he's simply not in the game plan this week.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Healthy scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Rams, Zack Cox of reports.

Even with Ryan Izzo (neck) having been placed on IR, Thomas won't factor into New England's gameplan against the Rams. Instead, the Patriots will roll with rookie tight ends Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Limited use in debut with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was on the field for seven snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Texans.

Thomas didn't catch his only target in his debut with the Patriots, but going forward the 6-foot-5, 277-pounder has the size and skill to emerge as a factor in the team's passing attack. Fantasy relevance for the 2018 sixth-rounder is another story, however, as tight ends haven't been a big part of New England's attack this season.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Unavailable Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Ravens, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Claimed off waivers from the Cardinals on Monday, Thomas cleared COVID-19 protocols Saturday and technically was in consideration for a spot on the game-day roster. However, with no practice reps with the Pats to date, the team will keep him on the sideline Sunday, leaving Ryan Izzo as New England's only available tight end.

Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas has cleared the COVID-19 protocols and moved to the Patriots' 53-man roster, Mike Reiss of reports.

Thomas was claimed off waivers by the Patriots on Monday, and he's immediately eligible to play against the Ravens on Sunday night. The team sorely needs depth at tight end, as the only other healthy tight end is Ryan Izzo, who is questionable with a hamstring injury.

Jordan Thomas: Claimed by New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots have claimed Thomas on waivers from the Cardinals, Mike Reiss of reports.

With the Patriots playing Monday night against the Jets, the move will become official Tuesday, but Thomas will bolster the team's depth at tight end down the road. With Devin Asiasi (undisclosed) on IR and Dalton Keene out this week, Ryan Izzo currently is the team's top healthy option at the position.

Jordan Thomas: Shown door in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals waived Thomas on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The Cardinals brought Thomas in after Maxx Williams suffered an ankle injury in the season opener and was subsequently put on IR. Williams is returning this week, so they cut Thomas, who caught just one pass -- a three-yard touchdown -- over four games.

Cardinals' Jordan Thomas: Records first score since 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas had a three-yard touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 defeat in Carolina.

Thomas took full advantage of his only snap on offense, kicking off the Cardinals' scoring in the middle of the second quarter. As merely the third tight end behind Dan Arnold and Darrell Daniels as long as Maxx Williams (ankle) is sidelined, Thomas has just two offensive snaps to his name in three appearances, so it's difficult to project any sort of value for the 24-year-old.

Cardinals' Jordan Thomas: Hops to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals promoted Thomas to the active roster Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Thomas played for the Cardinals in Week 2 before reverting to the practice squad, but he signed with the active roster now that Maxx Williams (ankle) is on injured reserve. Williams will be out at least three weeks, so expect Thomas to operate in a run-blocking role during that time.

Jordan Thomas: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is slated to sign with Arizona's practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Thomas wasn't able to earn a roster spot in Houston's crowded tight end room, but he'll now get a chance to prove his worth with the Cardinals. Across five games with the Texans in 2019, he had one catch for eight yards.

Jordan Thomas: Unable to secure roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was waived by the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Bill O'Brien praised Thomas for his playmaking ability early in training camp, but he ultimately couldn't beat out 2019 third-round pick Kahale Warring for the No. 3 TE role. Thomas showed some potential during his rookie season in 2018, recording 20 receptions for 215 yards and four scores, so he may seek a depth role elsewhere.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Receives praise from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Thomas has looked good in training camp, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "[Thomas] came back in great shape. He's really lost a lot of weight, running good, catching the ball, blocking, so he's got to keep it going," O'Brien said. "He got in and out of his breaks well."

Thomas entered training camp on the bubble because Darren Fells and Jordan Akins are locks after combining for 70-759-9 last year and Kahale Warring -- a 2019 third-round pick -- will get his first real opportunity after spending last year on IR with a concussion. It's a positive sign that Thomas is already drawing praise from O'Brien, and it appears there's a good chance he makes the final roster.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Teetering on roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas doesn't appear to have much job security heading into training camp, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Thomas had four touchdown receptions as a rookie in 2018 but was limited to five games and 67 offensive snaps in 2019 after a cracked rib at the end of August kept him on injured reserve for much of the season. Meanwhile, Darren Fells and Jordan Akins split the bulk of the playing time at tight end, combining for a 70-759-9 receiving line on 103 targets. Both appear locked in for 2020 roster spots, and 2019 third-round pick Kahale Warring also should join the competition after a preseason concussion led the Texans to stash him on IR for the entirety of his rookie campaign. Houston ran the second-most plays (349) out of 12 personnel (one back, two tight ends) in 2019, so it wouldn't be a major surprise if head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien kept four tight ends on his 53-man roster. Even so, Thomas is looking at a difficult path to snaps and targets.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Catches lone target in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 51-31 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs.

Thomas, who caught four touchdown passes as a rookie in 2018, entered 2019 as a leading candidate to become the No. 1 tight end, but he lost ground to Darren Fells and Jordan Akins. A rib injury in the preseason finale landed him on injured reserve, but Thomas became one of Houston's injured players designated for return, although he failed to make an impact when he did come back. The 23-year-old finished with just one catch on three targets during the regular season. He's one of three tight ends under contract for next season, along with Akins and injured rookie Kahale Warring (concussion).

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Light load in playoff win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas played eight of 69 snaps and was not targeted in Saturday's 22-19 overtime wild-card win over the Bills.

Thomas was elevated to the second tight end spot after the Texans made Jordan Akins (hamstring) inactive. Thomas, who was one of Houston's designated players to return from injured reserve, has done very little since coming off IR. His most active game was in the meaningless regular-season finale, when he caught one of three targets for eight yards while playing 38 snaps.

Texans' Jordan Thomas: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (illness) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills.

Thomas was unable to practice due to an ailment Wednesday, but he's now resumed participating without limitations. He stands to play his usual rotational role in Houston's tight end corps against the Bills on Saturday.

January 2, 2020 08:16 AM
Texans' Jordan Thomas: Picks up ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Thomas exact illness is unknown, however, the fact that he was forced to miss practice is a negative sign. Thomas has caught just one of three targets for eight yards this season, so his absence likely won't affect the team on offense.
