Cyril Grayson: Sees action from scrimmage

Grayson failed to bring in either of his two targets and returned one kickoff for 20 yards in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Grayson logged 12 snaps on offense overall but came up empty, with his only production limited to his one kickoff return. The second-year LSU product is likely to either head back to the practice squad or continue to play a minimal role when active, unless multiple injuries simultaneously strike the receiver corps.

Cyril Grayson: Signs with active roster

The Buccaneers signed Grayson to the active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson was on the team's practice squad and has only suited up once in Week 2 against the Panthers. The Buccaneers' wide receiver corps has been torched with injuries, as Mike Evans (ankle), Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Scotty Miller (hip) are all battling injuries heading into Thursday's game versus the Bears. Depending on how their respective recoveries progress, Grayson could enjoy a decent workload Thursday along with Tyler Johnson and Jaydon Mickens.

Cyril Grayson: Logs one target in win

Grayson failed to bring in his only target during the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Analysis: Grayson was active with Chris Godwin (concussion) sidelined, and the second-year wideout actually logged 18 scrimmage snaps. However, the LSU product unsurprisingly saw little of quarterback Tom Brady's attention in what was Grayson's third professional game. Godwin has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to be available for Sunday's Week 3 road matchup against the Broncos, so Grayson is candidate to potentially return to the practice squad.

Cyril Grayson: Sent to practice roster

Grayson reverted to the Saints' practice squad.

Analysis: Both Grayson and Bennie Fowler were elevated to the active roster for Week 1's win over the Buccaneers, although Fowler the only one to get on the field. Now, Michael Thomas (ankle) is expected to miss multiple games, so both receivers could be brought back up soon.

Cyril Grayson: Inactive against Saints

Grayson (coach's decision) is inactive for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, presumable as insurance for Mike Evans (hamstring). However, with Evans able to suit up Sunday, Grayson is inactive.

Cyril Grayson: Elevated from practice squad

Grayson was promoted from the practice squad to the Buccaneers' 55 man roster Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: It's no guarantee that Grayson will be one of the 48 players active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Saints. That decision will likely be determined by Mike Evans' (hamstring) ability to play, as he's currently expected to be a game-time decision. Even if Grayson does suit up, he figures to serve solely in a depth role.

Cyril Grayson: Moves to practice squad

Grayson cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Grayson made his NFL debut in Week 16 last season but didn't make much of an impact. The Buccaneers' wideouts were hit by an injury bug late last year, and Grayson likely won't be activated unless a similar situation plays out.

Cyril Grayson: Heads to waiver wire

The Buccaneers waived Grayson on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Grayson played for the Bucs in Weeks 16 and 17, catching one pass for three yards in the latter contest. However, the receiver room became too crowded with the draft addition of Tyler Johnson (undisclosed). If Grayson clears waivers, he'll likely land on the practice squad.

Cyril Grayson: PIcked up by Bucs

Grayson was signed off the Cowboys' practice squad by the Buccaneers on Monday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Chris Godwin and Mike Evans both dealing with hamstring issues, Grayson has been added to the Bucs' roster to help provide depth at wide receiver. This will be the LSU product's first stint in on an NFL roster after going undrafted in 2018.

Cyril Grayson: Added to Dallas practice squad

Grayson signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Grayson will provide some receiver depth after Cedrick Wilson suffered a knee injury in the Week 14 loss to the Bears. The Louisiana native has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Cyril Grayson: Waived by Saints

Grayson was waived by the Saints on Friday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Grayson was hoping to provide receiving depth, while also contributing on special teams for the Saints' final 53-man roster. However, the 25-year-old was unable to make enough of an impression. Should he go unclaimed off waivers, he could potentially land on the team's practice squad.

Cyril Grayson: Inks deal with New Orleans

Grayson (undisclosed) signed a contract with the Saints, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Grayson was released by the Bears at the beginning of May, but it didn't take him long to find a new home. He's yet to sniff the field in a regular-season game and seems unlikely to do so in 2019.

May 12, 2019 8:06 PM EST

Cyril Grayson: Let go by Bears

Grayson was waived by Chicago on Thursday.

Analysis: Grayson signed a reserve/future contract with Chicago in January of this year after joining their practice squad in November. The LSU product has yet to see action in a regular-season game, but he still has the chance to find a new team this offseason and change that.

May 2, 2019 5:47 PM EST

Cyril Grayson: Signs contract with Bears

Grayson signed a reserve/future contract with the Bears on Tuesday.

Analysis: Grayson joined Chicago's practice squad after being cut by Houston. The LSU product has yet to see action in an NFL game, but he'll have a chance to change that in 2019.

Cyril Grayson: Joins Bears' practice squad

Grayson was signed to the Bears' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The LSU was cut from the Texans' practice squad Oct. 30 before joining the Bears' practice squad Tuesday. Grayson has never suited up for a regular season NFL snap, so he's unlikely to provide any fantasy value in 2018.

November 27, 2018 9:29 AM EST

Cyril Grayson: Released from Texans' practice squad

Grayson was cut from Houston's practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Grayson's departure created a spot for Steven Mitchell, who was signed to the practice squad Monday.
