The wide receiver hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2020 and will provide Dallas with additional depth option off the active roster.

Gets injury settlement

The Chiefs waived Callaway (knee) from IR with an injury settlement Thursday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Callaway is nursing a bone bruise in his knee, but once healthy, he will now be free to search for a role elsewhere this season. In five appearances with the Dolphins last season, Callaway secured two of four targets for 20 yards.

Reverts to injured reserve

Callaway (knee) cleared waivers and reverted to the Chiefs' injured reserve Wednesday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Callaway has beene dealing with a bone bruise in his knee and was waived with an injury designation Tuesday. He'll remain on injured reserve all season unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Parts ways with Kansas City

Callaway (knee) was waived by the Chiefs on Tuesday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Callaway has been dealing with a bone bruise in his knee throughout the past week, and he's now been let go by Kansas City. The 24-year-old caught 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie for the Browns in 2018, but he's been unable to stick around anywhere over the past couple years due to off-field issues.

Not expected to play Saturday

Callaway (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the 49ers, according to Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star.

Analysis: Callaway injured his knee in practice earlier this week, and it appears that will prevent him from taking the field Saturday night. It remains to be seen when Callaway will be able to rejoin the competition for a spot on the Chiefs' roster.

Still missing practice

Callaway isn't in pads or a helmet for practice again Thursday, Matt Derrick of reports.

Analysis: Callaway is reportedly dealing with a bone bruise to his knee and was carted off the field earlier in the week. It's unclear when Callaway will be cleared to return, but he's missing valuable time to make his bid for a 53-man roster spot in the meantime.

Heading to Kansas City

Callaway secured a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Wednesday.

Analysis: As a 2018 fourth-round draft choice of Cleveland, Callaway has three NFL seasons under his belt and clearly is an impressive offensive player. After violating protocols that led to a suspension, Callaway was waived by the Browns and headed to Miami, where he caught two of his four targets for 20 yards throughout five games. The receiver will hopefully play a reserve role for Sunday's AFC-divisional round matchup against the Browns.

Waived by Miami

The Dolphins have waived Callaway.

Analysis: In five games with Miami, Callaway logged just two catches on four targets for 20 yards. The 2018 fourth-rounder could catch on elsewhere before long, but it's hard to imagine him making a fantasy impact before the close of the regular season.

Dec 21, 2020 2:41 PM EST

Clear of injury report

Callaway (undisclosed) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against New England, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old was absent from Thursday's practice for unspecified reasons, but it's nothing that will impact his status for Sunday's divisional matchup. Callaway hasn't found much involvement since being promoted from the practice squad in mid-November with two catches for 20 yards in four games.

Missing practice time

Callaway (undisclosed) was absent from Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The specifics of the absence are unclear but the team classified it as "not injury related." It's certainly an intriguing absence with just a few days before Sunday's game against the Patriots, so his practice status Friday will shed some more light on his chances to play. Callaway has caught just two of four targets for 20 yards this season, so his absence won't affect much from a fantasy perspective.

Dec 17, 2020 3:23 PM EST

Sees two targets

Callaway failed to catch both of his targets during Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: The 23-year-old played a season-high 22 offensive but was unable to offer any production. Callaway may not be a fantasy option regardless, but he could see some more opportunities Week 15 if DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) are unable to play.

Dec 15, 2020 6:51 PM EST

Back on active roster

The Dolphins promoted Callaway to the active roster Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Callaway was active for the first time all season during Miami's Week 10 win over the Chargers, though he didn't ultimately handle a single snap. He figures to continue playing a reserve role as long as Preston Williams (foot) remains on IR, but at this time Callaway is firmly off the fantasy radar.

Nov 18, 2020 2:31 PM EST

Demoted to practice squad

Callaway reverted to the Dolphins' practice squad Monday after going without a single snap during Sunday's 29-21 win against the Chargers, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 2018 fourth-round draft choice of Cleveland was active for the first time all year Sunday, after serving a seven-game suspension to begin the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Even without Preston Williams (foot) available for the contest, there still was no role reserved for Callaway in the Miami passing attack. Over 20 games played for the Browns between 2018 and 2019, Callaway accumulated 51 receptions for 675 yards with six total touchdowns.

Nov 16, 2020 5:45 PM EST

Uninvolved Week 10

Callaway did not play during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Callaway was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game, but he didn't end up playing a snap on offense or special teams. Even if the Dolphins bring him back up again Week 11, it's likely that Callaway will only serve as a reserve option.

Nov 16, 2020 5:29 PM EST

Dolphins debut on tap

The Dolphins elevated Callaway to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: While off-field issues have clouded Callaway's football career, the 23-year-old wideout has tons of talent and is a big-play threat due to how dangerous he is after the catch. He'll get a second chance with the Dolphins, and they need the help after placing Preston Williams (foot) on injured reserve. Callaway played four games for Cleveland last season and caught eight passes for 89 yards.

Nov 14, 2020 4:40 PM EST

Eligible to practice

Callaway (suspension) completed his suspension and will return to practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old will join Miami's practice squad now that his lengthy suspension is complete, and he could quickly make his way to the active roster if he looks good in practice. Callaway could be active in the passing game if/when he joins the active roster, as the Dolphins are in search of weapons for rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Nov 2, 2020 3:04 PM EST

Will be eligible to return Week 8

Callaway (suspended) will be eligible to return to the field after the Dolphins have played seven games in 2020, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Analysis: Callaway was handed a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy last November, and he's subsequently had four games added, so his first chance to retake the field will come during Miami's matchup against the Rams in Week 8. The Dolphins are lacking for quality receiving depth, so Callaway, currently a member of the practice squad, could see opportunities to make an impact this season as long as he's able to avoid any further off-field issues.

Sep 18, 2020 1:37 PM EST

Signs with Miami's practice squad

Callaway (suspension) signed with the Dolphins' practice squad Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Callaway is suspended for the first seven games of the 2020 season, but he has a new opportunity in Miami once his suspension is served. The 2018 fourth-round pick showed flashes as a rookie in 2018, catching 43 passes for 586 yards and five touchdowns, but off-field issues derailed his 2019 campaign. He's a low-risk, high-reward addition for the Dolphins.

Sep 6, 2020 10:05 AM EST

Signs with Vipers in XFL

Callaway (suspension) has joined the XFL's Tampa Bay Vipers via waivers, reports.

Analysis: Callaway was handed a 10-game suspension by the NFL in November after having been released by the Browns. Now having pivoted to the XFL to continue his professional career, there are numerous standing in the way of Callaway potentially reemerging in the NFL. He was also suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season, a ban which also came due to violating the league's substance abuse policy. Through 20 games with the Browns across two seasons, Callaway recorded 51 catches for 675 yards and five touchdowns.

Jan 22, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Loses suspension appeal

Callaway lost his appeal and will serve a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: It did not take long for a final decision on Callaway's suspension to be rendered, and he will now be forced to sit out for the second time this year.
