Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Re-signs with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson re-signed Tuesday with the Falcons, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

With the Falcons placing Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) on injured reserve, Goldson, who was previously waived by Atlanta in October, will rejoin the team to help restore some depth at safety. The former All-Pro is just a backup player at this stage of his career, so don't expect him to play many snaps over the final two weeks of the regular season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (coaches decision) is inactive for Monday's matchup with the Saints.

Goldson has been limited be a hamstring injury recently, which is likely the reason for his inactive status. While he has been able to suit up the first two weeks of the season, he played a very limited role.

Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Active Sunday versus Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Buccaneers.

The veteran defensive back was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Friday, as he deals with a hamstring issue. With Keanu Neal already ruled out, Goldson is the only backup behind starting strong safety Kemal Ishmael. If Goldson cannot go the Falcons will be stretched thin at both safety positions.

Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (hamstring) was limited in practice on Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Goldson was brought in the final week of the preseason to give the Falcons some assurance at safety with rookie Keanu Neal (knee) sidelined for a couple weeks. Look for more updates to come in the next few days as the team prepares to take on the Buccaneers on Sunday. Goldson and fellow safety Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) are both questionable for Sunday, which could leave the Falcons with a sizable hole in their secondary if neither is cleared to play.

Falcons' Dashon Goldson: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson signed a contract with the Falcons on Sunday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

After first-round pick Keanu Neal suffered a knee injury that will cost him between 3-to-4 weeks, the Falcons needed some additional help at safety, so they've opted to bring in Goldson. The nine-year veteran spent the 2015 campaign with the Redskins, notching 11 takles, one forced fumble and an interception over 15 games. He should slot in as a depth option behind Kemal Ishmael until Neal is healthy.

Dashon Goldson: Released by Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson has been released by the Redskins, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Goldson joins a number of notable former Redskins teammates in leaving the team this offseason, as Washington looks to free up salary-cap space. Despite the $8 million he was owed this coming season, Goldson is coming off a career-high 110 tackles to go with one interception this past year. With that sort of production, the 31-year-old should garner significant interest on the open market.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (shoulder/rib) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers.

Although sore ribs forced limited showings in practice this week, Goldson will assume his typical spot at strong safety, from which he tallied 110 tackles (72 solo), two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, and a pick-six in 15 games this season.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (ribs/shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Goldson missed the Redskins' regular season finale against the Cowboys and still appears to be suffering from some soreness in his ribs, but could still make the start Sunday, depending on how he feels during warm-ups. If Goldson is unable to play, the Redskins will likely fill his spot with some combination of DeAngelo Hall and Jeron Johnson.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Ruled out this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (shoulder/rib) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Washington Post reports.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Doesn't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (shoulder/rib) didn't practice Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Over the last two months, Goldson has dealt with hamstring, knee, and wrist concerns, yet he's at least fit in some activity in drills on a weekly basis. With back-to-back no-shows to kick off Week 17 prep, though, he appears to be trending in the wrong direction with shoulder and rib injuries in tow. Expect some clarity surrounding his status upon the release of Friday's injury report.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Probable against Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (knee/hamstring/wrist) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Cowboys.

Goldson is pretty banged up, but he increased his practice participation each day this week, and he is good to go for Monday night after getting in a full practice Saturday. He will be joined as a starting safety by DeAngelo Hall moving forward.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Limited at Friday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (knee/hamstring/wrist) was a limited participant at Friday's practice.

None of Goldson's injuries is thought to be overly serious, and his Friday return to practice bodes well for his Monday availability. With 86 tackles in 11 games, he's one of the safer IDP options among defensive backs.

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Doesn't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (knee/hamstring/wrist) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Goldson is clearly banged-up, as evidenced by the array of ailments, forcing his first absence from practice of the season. His activity level will be of interest to IDP owners in advance of Monday's contest against the Cowboys due to the free safety's pure volume in terms of tackles (86 in 11 games).

Redskins' Dashon Goldson: Probable to face Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldson (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Despite being limited in practice all week, Goldson is expected to be fine for Sunday. He's one of the worst offenders in a poor secondary, but IDP owners appreciate all the tackles.
