Grinnage was released by the Jaguars on Monday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Grinnage was let go by Jacksonville to make room for Ben Koyack on the 53-man roster. The depth tight end played well in limited rotational snaps, but was ultimately unable to stick with the Jaguars. He'll look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Grinnage (knee) is active Sunday against the Colts.
Analysis: Grinnage has only been active three weeks this season, but had at least one reception in each of those contests. He's listed behind James O'Shaughnessy on the depth chart, however, with O'Shaughnessy set to suit up for the first time since Week 6.
Grinnage sustained a knee injury and is questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: Grinnage was added to the injury report Friday as a limited participant with the knee injury, so the specifics of the injury remain unclear. Blake Bell is the Jaguars only fully healthy tight end -- since James O'Shaughnessy (hip) is also questionable -- heading into Sunday's matchup with the Colts.
Grinnage caught three of five targets for 37 yards during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars in London.
Analysis: Grinnage was actually outsnapped 32-to-28 by fellow tight end Blake Bell, but the latter had only one reception on two targets. James O'Shaughnessy will now have the Jaguars' Week 9 bye to further recovery from the hip injury, or Grinnage and Bell will continue to work as the team's top options at tight end.
Grinnage will start at tight end Sunday against the Eagles in London, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Analysis: It'll be the second consecutive starting assignment for Grinnage with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) unavailable. Grinnage was only targeted twice while playing 31 of 68 offensive snaps in the Week 7 loss to the Texans, finishing with two receptions for 17 yards. He may end up splitting work at tight end with Blake Bell, rendering both players rather unappealing fantasy commodities.
Grinnage caught both targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Analysis: Grinnage was pressed into starting duty with James O'Shaughnessy (inactive) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (abdomen) and Niles Paul (knee) on injured reserve. Grinnage led the tight-end group by playing 31 of 68 offensive snaps, but overall the position didn't play a significant role in the offense given the injuries. The 24-year-old could see a similar workload this week against the Eagles if O'Shaugnessy is unable to return, but is unlikely to have the role of a true starting tight end.
Grinnage will serve as the Jaguars' starting tight end Sunday against the Texans, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Analysis: Grinnage was promoted from the practice squad just under two weeks ago, but he'll move into the starting lineup for one week with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) sidelined and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) and Niles Paul (knee) on injured reserve. Despite earning the starting nod, Grinnage seems unlikely to emerge as a key cog in the Week 7 passing attack. There's also a possibility that he shares work at tight end with Blake Bell, who was signed to the 53-man roster Tuesday.
Grinnage caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys.
Analysis: Grinnage played nine offensive snaps in his NFL debut as fellow tight end Niles Paul suffered a sprained MCL in the first quarter. Paul's timetable should come into focus as he is further evaluated, but for now Grinnage should serve as Jacksonville's No. 2 tight end behind James O'Shaughnessy. The 24-year-old started the season on the practice squad and was added to the 53-man roster last week after starter Austin Seferian-Jenkins (abdomen) landed on injured reserve.
Grinnage was activated from the practice squad the the 53-man roster Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The 24-year-old tight end was promoted after fellow tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Monday. Grinnage has never seen NFL regular season action and will likely slot in after Niles Paul and James O'Shaughnessy on the depth chart.
