Giants' Ukeme Eligwe: Promoted to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eligwe was added to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, Michael Eisen of Giants.com reports.

The Giants added Eligwe to the active roster to add depth at the linebacker position after they placed fellow linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday. Eligwe, a 2017 fifth-round pick, spent the first six weeks of 2018 on the Giants' practice squad and appeared in 14 games last season for Kansas City, recording five tackles (five solo) and one sack.

Chiefs' Ukeme Eligwe: Plays in preseason Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eligwe (foot) totaled three tackles (all solo) while playing 24 defensive and five special teams snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Eligwe is taking aim at a 53-man roster spot as a reserve at middle linebacker again after appearing in 14 games in that role last season. The second-year linebacker likely sits in good position to do so, assuming his foot issue is behind him.

Chiefs' Ukeme Eligwe: Misses practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eligwe did not participate in Monday's practice due to a foot strain, Matt McMullen of Chiefs.com reports.

Eligwe's foot injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but the Chiefs elected to keep the second-year linebacker sidelined Monday. Eligwe may struggle to make the 53-man roster if he's out for an extended period of time, however, while Dorian O'Daniel and Terrance Smith figure to see additional reps at inside linebacker in the meantime.
