Cleared to play

Garner (knee) was active for Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Analysis: Garner has been making his way back from a torn ACL he suffered a year ago, and while he played just one snap in Saturday's contest, the fact that he was on the active roster is enough to show he is healthy again. He will use the rest of the offseason to compete for a depth role on the team.

Lands in Kansas City

Garner (knee) signed a contract with the Chiefs on Monday.

Analysis: Garner was previously waived by the Redskins in June, at which point he was still recovering from an ACL injury that sidelined him during OTAs. The 27-year-old's contract with the Chiefs likely indicates that he's taking positive steps in his recovery. When fully healthy, Garner will compete for a depth role in Kansas City's tight end room.

Cut loose by Washington

Garner (knee) was waived by the Redskins on Thursday.

Analysis: Garner was still dealing with his recovery from an ACL injury when he was held out of OTAs, which is likely a reason for his release. The move could also point to the idea that the 27-year-old has not progressed well enough in his rehabilitation. Regardless, the Redskins already had five other tight ends fighting for reps on their 90-man roster and Garner only has one career appearance in a regular-season NFL game under his belt.

Still dealing with injury

Garner was unable to practice at OTAs while still rehabbing from a torn ACL, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Garner suffered a torn ACL in August of last season, and still seems to be working his way back from that injury. The 27-year-old has played just one regular season game in his career thus far, and faces a loaded depth chart at tight end to secure a roster spot for 2019.

Planted on IR

Garner (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: This transaction was a mere formality since Garner has already been lost for the season due to a torn ACL he sustained in last week's preseason opener.

Done for season

Garner has been ruled out for the 2018 season after suffering an ACL tear in Thursday's season opener, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Garner received a promotion from Washington's practice squad last December after failing to make the roster out of camp, but he failed to appear in a game for the Redskins. His pursuit of a 53-man job out of camp this season just hit a major snag and he will now have to wait until 2019 to take another shot.
