Nick Bellore News

Clears league protocols

Bellore (concussion) has cleared concussion protocols and is no longer listed on Seattle's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bellore was held out of his team's Week 8 matchup against the Chargers due to a concussion suffered in Week 7, but he's since cleared league protocols and was back at practice Wednesday. He should be a full go for Sunday's game in Arizona.

Out Sunday

Bellore (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Bellore suffered a concussion during the team's Week 7 win over the Chargers and was unable to clear protocols ahead of Week 8. The fullback has played primarily on special teams this season, so his absence shouldn't impact Seattle's offense.

Won't return Sunday

Bellore has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a concussion.

Analysis: Bellore took a knee/leg to the head on the first play of the second half Sunday and remained down for several minutes with some teammates kneeling around him. He'll be unable to return after being diagnosed with a concussion and will have several steps to clear if he hopes to clear the league's protocols ahead of next Sunday's game against the Giants.

Staying in Seattle

Bellore (hamstring) signed a deal with the Seahawks on Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Bellore successfully carried the ball for the first time in his NFL career during his 2020 campaign with the team and caught his solo target for nine yards. Primarily working on special teams, the 31-year-old will return to his fullback role for his third consecutive season with Seattle

Dealing with hamstring injury

Bellore suffered a hamstring injury during Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 31-year-old exited during the second half with the injury. Bellore has played most of his snaps on special teams this season, so Seattle's offense is unlikely to be affected while he's sidelined.

Jan 9, 2021 4:20 PM EST

Re-signs with Seattle

Bellore re-signed with the Seahawks on Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Bellore was cut Saturday but is back with the team and ready for his 10th NFL season. The fullback logged just 29 offensive snaps last season and mainly worked on special teams.

Sep 7, 2020 2:43 PM EST

Cut by Seattle

The Seahawks released Bellore on Saturday, Brady Henderson of reports.

Analysis: This may just be temporary, as the team released Bellore on cut-down day last season before re-signing him the next day. However, it seems likely that this is a permanent cut since the Seahawks plan to roster four tight ends, and Jacob Hollister can serve as a fullback in a pinch.

Sep 5, 2020 9:05 PM EST

Scores once in 2019

Bellore recorded two receptions for 23 yards over 14 games in the 2019 season.

Analysis: Bellore played just 29 offensive snaps compared to 266 on special teams, which is typical since he converted to fullback from linebacker. He'll turn 31 years old in May, and he's under contract for the 2020 season.

Jan 14, 2020 4:10 PM EST

Finds paydirt in win

Bellore caught a three-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Cardinals.

Analysis: The converted linebacker was only targeted once before this contest, but he made his presence known with the Seahawks' only touchdown Sunday. Bellore mainly contributes on special teams and should continue that role in the season finale against the 49ers.

Dec 22, 2019 5:56 PM EST

Returns for full practice

Bellore practiced fully Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bellore missed Seattle's previous two games but appears ready to return after logging a full practice Thursday. The 30-year-old fullback is primarily used as a blocker out of the backfield and offers very little from a fantasy standpoint.

Dec 12, 2019 5:44 PM EST

Sitting out SNF

Bellore (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: The Seahawks will play without a fullback in this contest, so they may draw a tight end into the backfield to serve as the lead blocker in specific situations. This is the second straight game Bellore will miss.

Dec 8, 2019 4:03 PM EST

Doubtful for Sunday

Bellore (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Bellore was estimated to have been a non-participant in Wednesday's and Thursday's respective practices, which were walk-throughs. It looks like the 30-year-old is ticketed for a second-straight absence.

Dec 6, 2019 2:00 PM EST

Out as expected

Bellore (quadriceps) is officially inactive for Monday's clash with the Vikings.

Analysis: Bellore came into the game with a doubtful tag, so his absence from the lineup isn't quite surprising. The Central Michigan product has only touched the ball once this year, so his absence likely won't affect the fantasy realm.

Dec 2, 2019 3:57 PM EST

Doubtful for Week 13

Bellore (quadriceps) is officially doubtful for Monday's game against Minnesota, Seahawks digital media reporter John Boyle reports.

Analysis: Bellore hasn't played more than five snaps in a game this season and has touched the ball only once, so his expected absence will go unnoticed in the fantasy realm. The fullback originally picked up the injury against the Eagles in Week 12.

Nov 30, 2019 5:19 PM EST

Unable to practice

Bellore (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Bellore suffered a quadriceps injury during this past Sunday's win over the Eagles, and a DNP for the first official practice of the week is an unfavorable sign. The team won't practice Thursday, so we'll have to wait until Friday for another update on his status for Monday's clash against the Vikings. If Bellore's unable to go, the Seahawks could be without a fullback since they don't have a replacement on the practice squad.

Nov 27, 2019 5:38 PM EST

Suffers injury Sunday

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bellore is dealing with a quadriceps strain, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The injury was suffered in Sunday's win over the Eagles, and Carroll re-iterated that the strain isn't as bad as the team initially thought. Bellore's status is uncertain at best for Monday night's game against Minnesota, so expect his practice availability later in the week to shed light on his recovery. He's currently the only healthy fullback on the roster for the Seahawks.

Nov 25, 2019 4:19 PM EST

Re-ups with Seattle

Bellore signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.

Analysis: After releasing Bellore on Saturday, Seattle re-signed the 30-year-old to be the only fullback on the roster heading into Sunday's season opener against Cincinnati. Bell notes that the plan seemingly all along was to release Bellore, use his spot on the roster to move other pieces around and then re-sign the veteran shortly thereafter. Since entering the league in 2011, Bellore has appeared in 121 games for three teams -- the Jets, 49ers and Lions -- and has operated primarily on special teams.

Sep 3, 2019 11:35 AM EST

Signing with Seattle

Bellore signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Brady Henderson of reports.

Analysis: Bellore visited last month but is now putting pen to paper, presumably after not finding a better offer on the open market. It's not clear if Seattle envisions him as an offensive weapon or more of a special-teams guy, but Bellore nonetheless steps in as the only true fullback on the roster, which could prove useful in landing a roster spot ahead of Week 1.

May 9, 2019 12:47 PM EST

Snags pass in season finale

Bellore secured his only target for eight yards during Sunday's victory over the Packers.

Analysis: The Lions moved Bellore to fullback last spring once presumed starter Nick Bawden (knee) tore his ACL, and the results were mostly positive for how much playing time (7.4 offensive snaps per game) Bellore actually saw. However, the longtime linebacker never came close to popping on the fantasy radar and will now finish the 2018 campaign with zero yards on his lone rushing attempt and seven yards on his three receptions. Bellore will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Dec 30, 2018 6:12 PM EST

Clear of ankle injury

Bellore (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: Bellore began the week as a limited practice participant but practiced fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old has one rushing attempt on the season and should serve his usual role as a blocker versus Minnesota.
