Let go by Arizona

Whitney was waived by the Cardinals on Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Whitney signed a reserve/future contract with Arizona in January after finishing the season on the practice squad, but he won't have a chance at making the season-opening roster. He hasn't seen game action since 2017 when he appeared in two contests with the Raiders.

Whitney (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Whitney, Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson will all come off the COVID list and retake the practice field. The 27-year-old is facing steep competition for a depth role in Arizona's receiving corps.

Rejoins Cardinals

Whitney signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Jettisoned from practice squad

The Buccaneers cut Whitney from the practice squad Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Whitney was removed from the practice squad to make room for fellow wideout John Hurst. The second-year pro out of USC will search for a similar depth opportunity elsewhere in the league.

Joins Bucs' practice squad

The Buccaneers signed Whitney to the practice squad Wednesday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Whitney spent the offseason in Houston but wasn't able to make the final team, and he'll now get a chance to continue his development with Tampa Bay. The second-year wideout is still looking for an opportunity to make his NFL debut.

Unable to make final team

The Texans cut Whitney on Saturday.

Analysis: Whitney spent training camp competing for a role in Houston's deep receiving corps, but he was ultimately unable to stick. He hasn't seen regular-season action since appearing in two games with the Raiders in 2017.

Reverts to IR

Whitney (wrist) cleared waivers reverted to the Texans' injured reserve Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Whitney was waived/injured on Saturday after being carted off the field with a wrist injury. The wideout will likely remain on IR all season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team.

Waived-injured on Saturday

Whitney was waived with an injury designation by the Texans on Saturday due to an injured wrist.

Analysis: Whitney was unable to participate in several training camp sessions after injuring his hand/wrist earlier in the week, so the Texans ultimately decided to waive-injure the depth wideout in order to sign inside linebacker B.J. Bello.

Carted off field Thursday

Whitney was carted off the field Thursday with an apparent hand injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Whitney reportedly injured his hand in a one-on-one drill against Bradley Roby. It's unclear just how serious the issue is or how long the 25-year-old will need to recover. The injury obviously comes at a bad time for Whitney, who's trying to make Houston's active roster after spending most of the 2018 campaign on the practice squad.

Stays with Texans

The Texans signed Whitney to a future/reserve contract Tuesday.

Analysis: Whitney signed with Houston's practice squad in September and remained there for the duration of the season. The wide receiver joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2017, appearing in two games but failing to record a statistic. He'll have an opportunity to make the Texans' roster in 2019.

Signed to Houston's practice squad

The Texans signed Whitney to their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: To make room for Whitney on the practice squad, the Texans released receiver Malachi Dupre. Whitney signed as an undrafted free agent by the Raiders in 2017 and was active for two games.
