Will play Sunday

Ingold (thumb) is active Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: Ingold suffered the injury Week 16 against the Packers, which left him limited Week 17 against the Patriots. Whether or not he'll return to his usual snap count Week 18 is unknown, but the 26-year-old fullback will definitely be available to play.

Questionable for Week 18

Ingold (thumb) is considered questionable to play Sunday against the Jets.

Analysis: Ingold picked up a thumb injury during the loss to Green Bay on Christmas Day, which left him available for a season-low 11 offensive snaps during last Sunday's defeat New England. The 26-year-old was then limited during each practice Week 18. Ingold has played a career-high 386 offensive snaps across 16 games this season, and he's seen sparing usage as a receiver out of the backfield with 15 receptions (on 23 targets) for 105 yards and a touchdown. His potential absence would also leave Miami without its lone fullback in the running game.

Iffy to suit up Sunday

Head coach Mike McDaniel said Friday that Ingold (thumb) is considered a game-time decision to play Sunday against the Patriots, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Ingold is now in danger of missing his first contest of the 2022-23 campaign due to the thumb injury he suffered last weekend versus the Packers. Jeff Wilson and Salvon Ahmed would likely receive additional snaps come New Year's Day should Ingold eventually be sidelined for the first time this year.

Sustains thumb injury

Ingold is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a thumb injury.

Analysis: Ingold went to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game, and it's unclear whether he'll be available during the closing minutes of the matchup. Jeff Wilson and Salvon Ahmed could see a slight uptick in snaps if Ingold is unable to return.

No touches in blowout loss

Ingold played 21 of the Dolphins' 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Jets and didn't log any carries or targets.

Analysis: The fullback was uninvolved as a ball carrier or pass catcher for the second week in a row after he carried three times for three yards and three receptions for 23 yards on five targets over the first three contests of the season. After inking a two-year, $7.5 million deal in March, Ingold is one of the better-paid fullbacks in the NFL, but that doesn't mean he'll be asked to be a key playmaker within the Miami offense.

Good to go

Ingold (knee) is absent from the Dolphins' final injury report ahead of Sunday's season opener versus the Patriots, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Ingold is returning from a torn ACL. He sustained the injury last November. He was a limited participant earlier in the week at practice before logging a full workload Friday. Barring any setbacks, he appears on track to start at fullback versus New England.

Expects to play Week 1

Ingold (knee) said Wednesday that he didn't play in Miami's preseason finale due to a stomach flu and still expects to play in Week 1 against the Patriots, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Ingold tore his ACL last November and returned to practice at the beginning of training camp. However, he sat out Miami's preseason finale, which raised speculation that he may have suffered a setback. Ingold silenced those rumors by saying he was sidelined due to an aliment and will be good to go for the regular season.

Back at practice

Ingold (knee) practiced with the team Sunday while wearing a red no-contact jersey, Alain Poupart of reports.

Analysis: Ingold tore is ACL last November before joining the Dolphins on a two-year deal in March. The 26-year-old fullback will likely be looking to create yards for others, more so than himself this season. In three years with Las Vegas, Ingold recorded 15 carries for 22 yards, plus 28 receptions on 35 targets for 239 yards and three touchdowns.

Rehab going well

Ingold said Monday that his "knee is doing great," and he hasn't experienced any setback so far, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

Analysis: Ingold, who tore his ACL in November of 2021, signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dolphins this offseason and is expected to be healthy by training camp. During the 2021 campaign, he recorded two carries for one yard while securing 10 of 12 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown across nine appearances for the Raiders.

Signing with Dolphins

Ingold (knee) is signing a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Ingold spent his first three professional seasons with the Raiders, and he recorded two carries for one yard while securing 10 of 12 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown across nine appearances in 2021. He tore his ACL in Week 10 last year but is expected to be back to full health in time for training camp. Once the 25-year-old is healthy, he'll have a chance to carve out touches in coach Mike McDaniel's offense in Miami.

Mar 17, 2022 9:20 AM EST

Headed for free agency

The Raiders won't extend a contract offer to Ingold (knee), Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The fullback, who was a looming RFA, tore his ACL in Week 10 last season but is expected to be full-go in time for training camp. Pelissero suggests that the Raiders could potentially bring the 25-year-old back, but Thursday's development puts Ingold in line to be free to sign elsewhere next week.

Mar 10, 2022 12:19 PM EST

Placed on IR

Ingold (knee) was placed on injured reserve by the Raiders on Saturday.

Analysis: Ingold's move to IR is simply procedural after the fullback suffered an isolated ACL tear in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Chiefs. Sutton Smith was activated from the practice squad Saturday and should serve as the team's primary fullback going forward.

Nov 20, 2021 5:13 PM EST

ACL tear confirmed

Ingold (knee) underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed that he suffered an isolated ACL tear in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Chiefs, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The third-year fullback will likely head in for surgery in the coming days and miss the remainder of the season as a result. His recovery from surgery will likely extend through OTAs and perhaps early on during training camp, but because no other ligament damage was detected in his knee, Ingold should be ready to go for the start of the 2022 campaign. Ingold, who will be a restricted free agent this offseason, compiled two carries for one yard and 10 receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets through nine games.

Nov 15, 2021 12:22 PM EST

Torn ACL feared

The Raiders fear that the knee injury Ingold suffered against the Chiefs on Sunday was a torn ACL, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Ingold will have further tests Monday to confirm his diagnosis, but the most likely outcome is a season-ending injury. Expect an update on the versatile fullback and locker room leader once his results become available Monday.

Nov 14, 2021 7:06 PM EST

Ruled out for Sunday night

Ingold has been ruled out of Sunday's game with a knee injury.

Analysis: Ingold will certainly head for more tests on Monday. He has only two carries and 11 targets all season, so his absence will mostly be felt when blocking is needed as well as on special teams.

Nov 14, 2021 6:21 PM EST

Three receptions in loss

Ingold caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Ingold brought some excitement to the Raiders sideline when he hurdled a Giants defender to move the sticks after hauling in a pass late in the second quarter, which helped set up a field goal heading into halftime. The fullback has just 11 total touches through the first eight games of the season, however.

Nov 7, 2021 10:46 PM EST

Catches all four targets Week 1

Ingold caught four passes for 22 yards during Monday's 33-27 overtime win against the Ravens.

Analysis: Derek Carr threw for 435 yards Monday night, which allowed Ingold to snag a career-high four passes. The 25-year-old fullback has caught just 18 passes across 32 games during his first two seasons with the Raiders. Despite the career-high performance, Ingold's fantasy value is certainly limited to a touchdown-dependent streaming option moving forward.

Sep 14, 2021 10:09 AM EST

Catches lone target

Ingold (ribs) caught his only target for two yards during Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

Analysis: The 24-year-old had a typical workload during Sunday's contest, playing 17 percent of the offensive snaps while also filling in on special teams. Ingold hasn't registered two touches in a game since Week 5 and is rarely sought out as a runner or receiver.

Dec 8, 2020 2:35 PM EST

Full-go during Thursday's session

Ingold (ribs) was a full participant during the Raiders' practice session Thursday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: The fullback fielded 11 offensive snaps and 16 special-teams snaps during Las Vegas' 43-6 loss to Atlanta in Week 13, and there were no reported setbacks postgame. Ingold broke two ribs while facing off against the Chargers in Week 9, but he still hasn't missed a game because of the injury.

Dec 3, 2020 5:37 PM EST

Cleared for Sunday's game

Ingold (ribs) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: Ingold fractured two ribs in last Sunday's win over the Chargers, but the Wisconsin product won't be denied, as he has yet to miss a game since entering the league in 2019. He'll continue to open up holes for Josh Jacobs while catching the occasional pass from Derek Carr.
