Panthers' Frankie Luvu: Heads to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu signed with the Panthers on Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Luvu averaged roughly 20 defensive snaps per game with the Jets in 2020, recording 25 tackles, two sacks, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery across 13 contests. The 24-year-old should see most of his work on special teams in Carolina, but he could occasionally rotate in as an edge rusher, too.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Moves to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets activated Luvu (groin) from injured reserve Saturday.

Luvu has shaken off the groin injury that he suffered in Week 6 against the Dolphins, and he'll return to the lineup for a road game against the Chargers on Sunday. The Washington State product will continue to add depth behind starting outside linebackers Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets designated Luvu (groin) for a return off injured reserve Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Luvu was able to return to practice for the first time since being placed on IR on Oct. 20, as the team will have 21 days to officially activate him. The Washington State product could suit up as early as Sunday's game against the Chargers, but as long as Luvu is sidelined, Bryce Hager is the team's only healthy depth outside linebacker.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Luvu (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Luvu will miss the team's next three games, as he won't be eligible to return until Week 11 against the Chargers. He plays predominately on special teams, but his absence will hurt the Jets' depth at outside linebacker, as Jordan Willis will be the only backup behind Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Forced out versus Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu will not return to Sunday's game against Miami due to a groin injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Luvu normally contributes as a rotational linebacker for the Jets. His absence could create extra snaps for Harvey Langi and Blake Cashman.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Retained by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu has re-signed with the Jets.

The exclusive rights free agent is thus set to reprise his reserve linebacker/special teams role with the team. Luvu logged 12 tackles and a sack in 13 contest for the Jets last season in that capacity.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Returns to Jets' 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu was promoted to the Jets' 53-man roster from the practice squad Friday.

Luvu was on the active roster for the first five weeks of the season before being waived in mid-October, but he was immediately signed to the team's practice squad after clearing waivers. The 23-year-old will provide some much-needed depth at inside linebacker for Week 9 with Neville Hewitt (neck) doubtful, C.J. Mosley (groin) out and Blake Cashman (shoulder) placed on injured reserve.

Frankie Luvu: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu was waived by the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Luvu has spent the past two seasons in New York, recording 26 tackles and three sacks over 16 games. He'll now look to sign on with another active roster or practice squad looking to shore up their linebacker corps.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu (hand) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Luvu reportedly practiced with a splint on his hand, but he doesn't appear to be noticeably hindered by any sort of injury. The rotational linebacker looks good to go for Sunday's contest against the Bills.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu is nursing a hand injury Thursday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

It's unclear how Luvu sustained the hand injury. It's good news that Luvu is able to practice in some capacity with a splint, but his chances of suiting up Week 1 versus the Bills could be impacted.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Sticking in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu signed his exclusive rights rights tender with the Jets on Tuesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Luvu was a pleasant surprise for the Jets last season as he recorded 22 tackles (17 solo) and three sacks as an undrafted rookie. Brandon Copeland re-signed with the Jets on a one-year deal, and the 22-year-old could push him for playing time with a strong offseason.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Tendered by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu, an exclusive-rights free agent, has been tendered by the Jets, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Luvu blew all expectations out of the water as an undrafted rookie last season and clearly made himself an obvious candidate for the Jets to retain for 2019. The Washington State product came on particularly strong down the stretch, recording 11 tackles and two sacks in the final six games. With Brandon Copeland set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, it's not out of the question for Luvu to compete for a starting spot ahead of the upcoming season.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Practicing in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu (neck) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Luvu was sidelined in Week 9 due to a neck injury, and his availability for Week 10 was up in the air. The fact that Luvu was able to practice in full Thursday bodes well for his Week 10 availability. If the rookie is able to suit up Sunday, expect him to resume his role as a depth linebacker.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Sidelined for Sunday's tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu (neck) will not play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Luvu's status seemed to teeter back and forth this week, but given the nature of neck injuries it seems as though the Jets have opted to play this one with added caution. Although technically not listed as a starter, Luvu has emerged as a frequently used outside linebacker in Todd Bowles' schemes. Perhaps Brandon Copeland will see a spike in responsibility with the rookie sidelined.

Jets' Frankie Luvu: Listed as questionable for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu (neck) carries the questionable tag going into Sunday's contest against the Dolphins, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Luvu didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday but was able to practice in a limited capacity Friday. If the Washington State product misses time on Sunday, fellow linebacker Tarell Basham could see an increase in work.

September 8, 2018 05:16 PM
Jets' Frankie Luvu: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Luvu is being activated from the Jets' practice squad to active roster Saturday.

Luvu's promotion to the 53-man roster is unsurprising with Josh Martin (concussion) not ready to suit up Week 1. Expect Luvu to suit up at outside linebacker for New York's season opener against the Lions on Monday.
