Dunbar has been picked up by the Packers' practice squad, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: With Jaire Alexander (shoulder) on injured reserve and Kevin King (shoulder) questionable for Green Bay's Week 6 matchup with the Bears, Dunbar could potentially see a quick elevation to the active roster. He was most recently let go by Arizona's practice unit.

Dunbar was released from Arizona's practice squad Tuesday.
Analysis: The cornerback signed with the Cardinals on Sept. 28 following his release from the Lions. He was expected to contribute to the team's secondary but that just wasn't the case. Dunbar will look for another suitor for his services in 2021.

Dunbar signed a deal to join the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Dunbar signed with the Lions this offseason but was released during training camp. Prior to signing with Arizona, Dunbar also worked out with the Bills. While it may take some time for him to get acclimated to his new team, Dunbar should be expected to join the active roster at some point in the coming weeks. He could provide solid play in the secondary, as he picked off four passes in 2019 across only 11 games.

The Lions will cut Dunbar on Thursday, NFL reporter Josina Anderson reports
Analysis: Dunbar signed a one-year deal with the Lions back in April, and he reportedly saw some first-team rep during June minicamp, but he'll now have to look for a role elsewhere in the league. The 29-year-old managed five pass breakups and an interception in just six appearances with Seattle last season.

Dunbar (knee) rotated first-team reps opposite Jeff Okudah with Amani Oruwariye during mandatory minicamp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar underwent surgery towards of the end of the 2020 season, but that didn't stop the Lions from signing him to a one-year deal in April. He appeared to be fully healthy in minicamp and earned some strong reviews for his play. Whether or not he'll have a starting role opposite Okudah remains undecided, but he should have a significant role in the secondary regardless. In only six contests last season, Dunbar managed five passes defensed and one interception with Seattle.

Dunbar (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Dunbar was unable to finish the 2020 season after suffering a knee injury that required surgery, but the hope is that he'll be at full strength for the start of the upcoming campaign. The Florida product collected 30 tackles (28 solo), five passes defensed and one interception over six contests with Seattle prior to being shut down. He figures to slot in as one of Detroit's top corners in 2021.

Dunbar had successful knee surgery Tuesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Dunbar won't return this season and will begin rehabbing in the near future. It remains unclear exactly what Dunbar was dealing with, as coach Pete Carroll merely stated that it was a "chronic knee issue." Dunbar finished the 2020 season with 30 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception over six games, all while allowing a 111.0 passer rating when targeted in coverage. The 28-year-old cornerback will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. says "it's obvious" Dunbar (knee) was not 100 percent healthy when he joined the Seahawks for in-person activities in August, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Analysis: Dunbar was coming off a tremendous 2019 campaign with Washington when Seattle acquired him for a fifth-round pick in March, surrendering a meager 61.2 passer rating in coverage while recording four interceptions during his final season as a member of the Team. The 28-year-old had not been as effective in his debut campaign with the Seahawks, surrendering a 111.0 passer rating with four passing touchdowns allowed and just one forced INT. Now, he's been shut down for the season, with coach Pete Carroll confirming Wednesday that Dunbar will not return from his knee injury this season.

Dunbar (knee) will remain on IR for the remainder of the season and have knee surgery, per coach Pete Carroll, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar originally planned to push the surgery off until after the season, but he has not been able to recover from his chronic knee injury and will not be returning from IR. The 28-year-old cornerback finishes the 2020 season with 30 tackles and an interception in six games.
Dec 23, 2020 1:31 PM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Dunbar may need offseason knee surgery, but he'll try to play through it this season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Analysis: Dunbar is battling a chronic knee issue that has bothered him for months now, but Carroll believes he can play through the injury this season. The 28-year-old cornerback has been practicing with the team for nearly two weeks; he's aiming to return to the lineup in Week 16 against the Rams. It's possible that the Seahawks don't thrust Dunbar into a starting role upon return in order to minimize the wear and tear on his knee. That notion receives further credence after Carroll stated Sunday that cornerback D.J. Reed "deserves to keep playing" after looking impressive in place of Dunbar, according to Condotta.
Dec 21, 2020 3:36 PM EST
Dunbar (knee) wasn't activated from injured reserve for Sunday's game versus Washington.
Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said early in the week that Dunbar would practice with the mentality that he'd play Sunday, but that didn't come to fruition. Dunbar will spend another week on the sidelines, meaning D.J. Reed will start at right cornerback once again.
Dec 20, 2020 9:15 AM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Dunbar (knee) is practicing with the mentality of playing in Sunday's game versus Washington, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar returned to practice last Wednesday, opening his 21-day window to be activated from IR. He's working through a chronic knee injury and will be closely monitored through the practice week. Carroll indicated the team will make a decision either Friday or Saturday. If he's unable to go, D.J. Reed will make another start at right cornerback.
Dec 14, 2020 3:24 PM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Dunbar (knee) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Jets, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Analysis: Dunbar was able to practice all week, but he hasn't made enough progress to be activated from IR. He'll look to get back into the mix next week against Washington. The Seahawks will play this week without two of their top three corners, as Tre Flowers (hamstring) is also out. In turn, D.J. Reed will start at right cornerback once again.
Dec 11, 2020 2:30 PM EST
The Seahawks designated Dunbar (knee) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar has missed four straight games due to a chronic knee injury, but it appears as though he's nearing a return to the field. The Seahawks will have a 21-day window to evaluate him at practice without Dunbar counting against the active roster.
Dec 9, 2020 3:04 PM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Dunbar (knee) is expected to practice this week, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar is working his way back from a chronic knee issue that has kept him out of the last four games. Once he returns to the practice field, his 21-day window to be activated from IR will begin. Since Tre Flowers (hamstring) is also on IR, Dunbar will be a major boost to Seattle's secondary once he's ready to return.
Dec 7, 2020 3:49 PM EST
The Seahawks placed Dunbar (knee) on injured reserve Thursday, Jordan Duncan of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Dunbar missed Week 10's loss to the Rams due to a knee injury, and he'll now be required to sit out at least three more games while on injured reserve. In a corresponding move, Seattle re-signed fellow cornerback Jayson Stanley. Dunbar's absence will no doubt make it even more difficult for the Seahawks to contain Kyler Murray through the air Thursday night.
Nov 19, 2020 3:02 PM EST
Dunbar (knee) will miss Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Analysis: Seattle will also be without fellow cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) and Neiko Thorpe (abdomen), so slowing down Arizona's aerial attack will be a challenge for Seattle's league-worst pass defense. Coach Pete Carroll is optimistic that Dunbar will be able to avoid an IR stint, so hopefully a 10-day layoff following Thursday's game will provide enough time for Dunbar to heal up ahead of a Week 12 matchup against the Eagles.
Nov 18, 2020 1:50 PM EST
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Dunbar (knee) will need "some time" to return, but injured reserve isn't currently in the conversation, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: It appears the Seahawks are taking it week-to-week with Dunbar as he battles through a chronic knee issue. Carroll has already said that this injury could last for an extended period of time. Dunbar seems likely to sit out again in Thursday's game against the Cardinals, and if that's the case, the cornerback has chance to return in Week 12 against the Eagles as long as he's indeed left off IR.
Nov 16, 2020 3:28 PM EST
Dunbar (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Analysis: Dunbar is dealing with a chronic knee issue, and he sat out this past Sunday's loss to the Rams. With a Thursday night matchup against the Cardinals up next, Dunbar's trending in the wrong direction to start the week, and the Seahawks may opt to let him utilize the extended rest since their next game is Nov. 30. Shaquill Griffin (hamstring/concussion) was also listed as DNP, so the Seahawks' secondary could be in rough shape yet again.
