Packers' LeShun Daniels: Leads Green Bay backfield Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels rushed for a team-high 23 yards on five carries and was targeted one time in the passing game Friday against the Raiders.

Daniels may still face an uphill battle to secure a 53-man roster spot out of training camp, but he displayed a little bit of his ability during Thursday's preseason contest. He will likely have one more opportunity to showcase his ability next Thursday against the Chiefs before cuts are due.

Packers' LeShun Daniels: Inks deal with Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels signed a contract with the Packers on Saturday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Daniels will receive a chance to make a name for himself in the Packers' backfield after Akeem Judd called it quits, but he will have a shortened training camp to do so. Daniels' best bet at earning a spot likely comes as a special teams contributor.

LeShun Daniels: Waived by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (hand) was waived by Washington on Thursday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

Daniels appeared in four games for the Redskins as a rookie in 2017, totaling just 14 yards on three carries. Now presumably past the broken hand that landed him on IR last December, the 22-year-old will look to catch on elsewhere as a depth back, special teams player, or practice squad member.

Redskins' LeShun Daniels: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins placed Daniels (hand) on injured reserve Saturday.

Daniels fractured his hand at practice Thursday and was lost for the season. The 22-year-old is the fifth Washington running back to land on injured reserve this season. The Redskins signed Kenny Hilliard to the 53-man roster to provide additional depth out of the backfield.

Redskins' LeShun Daniels: Out with broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels fractured his hand during Thursday's practice and will miss the rest of the season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

With starting running back Samaje Perine listed as questionable with a groin injury, Daniels might have landed in a key role for Sunday's game against the Broncos if he hadn't injured his hand. The undrafted rookie has plenty of time to get healthy for the start of the offseason program, but there's no guarantee the Redskins even keep him around that long. The team already has four running backs on injured reserve, led by Chris Thompson (leg) and Rob Kelley (ankle).

Redskins' LeShun Daniels: First game action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels rushed twice for 12 yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Chargers.

Daniels saw his first NFL action Sunday after Byron Marshall sustained a hamstring injury early in the contest. If Marshall continues to miss time, Daniels will be in line to be the No. 2 back on depth chart behind Samaje Perine against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Redskins' LeShun Daniels: Signs with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins signed Daniels off their practice squad Tuesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels will assume the roster spot of Chris Thompson, who will be placed on injured reserve after fracturing his right fibula in Sunday's loss to the Saints. With Rob Kelley (ankle) also on IR, Daniels will check in as third on the depth chart at running back behind Samaje Perine (finger) and Byron Marshall heading into the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Giants. A healthy Perine should fill the lead back role for the Redskins, but Daniels could end up serving as a change-of-pace option if Marshall proves ill equipped for those duties.

LeShun Daniels: Released from Chargers' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers released Daniels from their practice squad Monday.

Daniels found his way to the Chargers' practice squad last week after failing to secure a spot with the Patriots during camp. The undrafted rookie from Iowa will now be forced to look for a new opportunity.

LeShun Daniels: Earns spot on San Diego practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers signed Daniels to their practice squad Tuesday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Daniels was unable to secure a roster spot in a loaded Patriots' running-back corps coming out of training camp, but a spot on the San Diego practice squad could provide an easier path to him reaching the NFL. The undrafted rookie out of Iowa impressed during his final college season with 1,058 yards and 10 touchdowns.

LeShun Daniels: Let go by Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels was released by the Patriots on Sunday, Paul Perillo of the teams' official site reports.

Daniels was an undrafted free agent out of Iowa who signed with the team in May. He dealt with an undisclosed injury through the second half of August, which may have impacted his chances of making the teams final roster, even as just a special teams contributor.

Patriots' LeShun Daniels: Practices in full pads
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (undisclosed) showed up to practice in full gear Tuesday, Erik Scalavino of the Patriots' official site reports.

The undrafted rookie likely won't find any offensive duties with the Patriots, but he could find himself in a special teams role. If Daniels doesn't make the team, however, he's shown efforts in the preseason that are worthy of a practice squad spot.

Patriots' LeShun Daniels: Expected to sit with ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels isn't expected to take the field for Saturday's game against the Texans due to an undisclosed injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Daniels rushed for 39 yards on 11 carries in the team's preseason opener against the Jaguars but will miss a valuable opportunity at proving his worthiness of a roster spot in the team's second preseason tilt. While Mike Gillislee (hamstring) will also sit out the contest, the Patriots still have five other running backs to share the load against Houston.

Patriots' LeShun Daniels: Logs 39 rushing yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels carried 11 times for 39 yards in Thursday's 31-24 preseason loss to the Jaguars.

We wouldn't read too much into Daniels' effort Thursday, as the Patriots rested numerous starters. However, the undrafted running back could well end up sticking with the team as a practice squad player.
