Bawden (undisclosed) was placed on the Jets' injured reserve Tuesday, Andy Vasquez of NJ.com reports.
Analysis: It's unclear what injury Bawden is currently dealing with, though he will now be forced to miss the entirety of the regular season unless he can negotiate an injury settlement with the team. The 26-year-old fullback recorded one catch for 20 yards over nine games with the team in 2021, though he primarily played on special teams (164 of his 220 total snaps) over this span.

Bawden will re-sign with the Jets on a one-year contract Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Bawden was shuffled between the Jets' practice squad and the active roster last year, and he played mainly on special teams. He didn't record any carries but hauled in his lone target for 20 yards while appearing in nine games. The 25-year-old will presumably have to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster ahead of the 2022 campaign.

Analysis: Elevated from the practice squad for the second consecutive week, Bawden made a positive contribution on his only touch. Hopefully the Jets were impressed with what they saw from the fullback, as they'll need to sign Bawden to the roster in order to use him in game action moving forward.

Bawden was waived by Detroit on Thursday.
Analysis: Bawden didn't see any action with the Lions during the 2020 season, as he spent the year on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury. The 2018 seventh-round pick saw action in 10 games in 2019 while playing on offense and special teams, catching four passes for 17 yards.

The Lions placed Bawden (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: This is a tough break for Bawden, as he'll be placed on injured reserve for the second time in three seasons. It's unclear as to the specifics of the injury, but the 2018 seventh-round pick will reside on IR barring an injury settlement with the club. Bawden saw action in 10 games in 2019 while playing on offense and special teams, catching four passes for 17 yards.

Bawden (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Bawden's season is over after suffering a knee injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. The second-year fullback averaged 12.7 offensive snaps per game this year, catching four of six targets for 17 yards. The Lions don't have another fullback on their active or practice rosters, so they may choose to fill the void via a free agent.
Nov 20, 2019 1:53 PM EST
Bawden (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Bawden left the game late in the second quarter, and as evidenced by this news, the issue will keep him out of the remainder of the game. The team is without another healthy fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how they'll operate going forward.
Nov 17, 2019 12:35 PM EST
Bawden (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Bawden popped up on the injury report with a foot injury Saturday, but as evidenced by this news, seems to be dealing with a new issue. The 2018 seventh-round pick is the team's only fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how the offense will approach things while Bawden is sidelined.
Nov 17, 2019 11:52 AM EST
Bawden (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Bawden popped up on the injury report with a questionable tag Saturday, but it won't keep him out of the game. The second-year pro is the team's only fullback, and he'll pave the way for Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic.
Nov 17, 2019 8:33 AM EST
Bawden (foot) has been added to the Lions' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Bawden is the only full back on the Lions' roster, so they would presumably go with more single-back formations should he ultimately be unable to go. Clarity on his status will come closer to Sunday's kickoff.
Nov 16, 2019 10:14 AM EST
Bawden (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Analysis: Bawden appeared on Friday's injury report as a limited participant in practice. He seems to have suffered a back injury mid-week. If Bawden is unable to go Week 7, the Lions will have to make due without a healthy fullback on the roster.
Oct 18, 2019 12:39 PM EST
Bawden caught his only target for a 10-yard gain during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.
Analysis: Bawden continues to a be a low-usage offensive weapon, but he flashed his athleticism on his lone opportunity Sunday by catching a short pass and hurdling Eagles safety Rodney McLeod to get Detroit into the red zone.
Sep 22, 2019 4:44 PM EST
Bawden was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 27-27 tie with the Cardinals.
Analysis: Bawden logged a quarter of the offensive snaps and over 70 percent of available special-teams snaps, but he simply isn't in a role that will allow for consistent offensive production.
Sep 9, 2019 8:10 AM EST
Bawden logged snaps on special teams during Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.
Analysis: Bawden missed the entire 2018 season due to a torn ACL and was thought to be a candidate for the regular-season PUP list. However, he's seemingly progressed faster than originally thought, and his availability for Thursday's exhibition game all but confirms that he's good to go moving forward.

Bawden (knee) is a candidate to open the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Bawden has yet to practice in full since tearing an ACL last July. Detroit is going to have some tough choices to make in the backfield when it comes time to make roster cuts in early September. If Vitale isn't fully ready to go by that time, stashing him on the PUP list is one way the Lions could buy time to make a decision. Behind starter Kerryon Johnson and backup C.J. Anderson, there seem to be three other options (Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner, Ty Johnson) competing with Bawden for what will likely amount to two roster spots.
Jun 26, 2019 7:45 AM EST
Bawden (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Bawden is still recovering from a torn ACL that kept him on injured reserve for the entire 2018 season. The San Diego State product missed OTAs as well as the team's minicamp. It's unclear if Bawden will be good to go come training camp in late July, but more information should surface closer to that time.
Jun 13, 2019 4:21 PM EST
Bawden (knee) is not participating in the opening week of OTAs, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Bawden is recovering from a torn ACL that planted him on injured reserve for the entirety of the 2018 season. Running back Mark Thompson and tight end Jerome Cunningham have stepped in at fullback in his absence Wednesday.
