Seals-Jones was among several tight ends to work out for Indianapolis on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones began training camp with a good chance to be the Giants' starting tight end this season, but he hurt his toe very early in camp and was eventually released with an injury settlement. He now appears to be healthy and will try to latch on with the Colts, who currently have only one healthy tight end (Kylen Granson) on the active roster with both Mo Alie-Cox (ankle) and Jelani Woods (shoulder) missing practice Wednesday.

The Giants released Seals-Jones (toe) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones was slated to miss the entire 2022 campaign after being placed on IR, but he'll now be free to join a new team once he clears his current toe issue. The 27-year-old tight end appeared in 13 games for Washington last year and caught 30 of 49 targets for 271 yards and two scores.

Seals-Jones was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to toe injury, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones can't play for the Giants this season, but he might be able to play for another team if he reaches an injury settlement. It's also possible this is truly a season-ending injury, as Seals-Jones otherwise seemed to be right in the mix for snaps in arguably the weakest TE room in the league. Rookie Daniel Bellinger got most of the first-team snaps in the Giants' first two preseason games and had a costly drop-turned-interception in the second one.

Seals-Jones (undisclosed) should claim a roster spot heading into the 2022 campaign, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The tight end hasn't practiced since the second day of camp while dealing with an unspecified injury, but he seems all but guaranteed to make the final roster after signing with New York in March. There's no word on if Seals-Jones will be healthy for the start of the year, but he will in all likelihood split reps with Daniel Bellinger on the Giants' offense when he returns to the field.

Seals-Jones (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against Cincinnati, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones didn't play in last week's preseason opener against the Patriots and will miss a second consecutive matchup to begin the preseason. His final chance to see some game action prior to the regular season will be Aug. 28 against the Jets.
Aug 19, 2022 8:55 AM EST
Seals-Jones (undisclosed) is unlikely to play Thursday in the Giants' first preseason game, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones has been absent from the practice field for much of training camp, and he was also involved very little during minicamp. A specific injury has still yet to be reported. Seals-Jones was expected to compete with 2022 fourth-round rookie, Daniel Bellinger and offseason signee, Jordan Akins for the leading spot on the Giants' tight end positional depth chart. However, the more time Seals-Jones misses, the harder it's going to be for him to nab the No. 1 spot.

Seals-Jones missed a fifth straight practice Wednesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: No injury has been reported, but that's the most likely explanation for his continued absence. Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News notes that Seals-Jones didn't get much run in spring practices either, after signing with the Giants in March. The team's other candidates for TE targets are former Texan Jordan Akins and rookie fourth-round pick Daniel Bellinger.
Aug 3, 2022 7:14 AM EST
Seals-Jones did not participate in Monday's practice, marking the third consecutive practice he's missed, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: It's unclear if Seals-Jones is dealing with an injury, and he certainly has plenty of time to ramp into shape before the season begins, but his absence from practice is notable since he's in a competition for New York's starting tight-end role. The veteran came into camp with a slight inside edge for the gig, but the Giants also brought in ex-Texan Jordan Akins this offseason and selected Daniel Bellinger in the fourth round of the draft, and either player could pull ahead of Seals-Jones on the depth chart with a strong preseason.

The Giants and Seals-Jones (concussion) agreed to a contract Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones is joining the fifth organization of his career and a team in great need at his position after Evan Engram left for Jacksonville, Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith (knee) were cut in recent weeks, and Levine Toilolo (Achilles) hit free agency. Seals-Jones flashed at times last season for Washington when Logan Thomas (knee) was sidelined, gathering in 30 of 49 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns. With the Giants, Seals-Jones will serve as the team's unquestioned top tight end due to the competition combining for three career catches, all by Chris Myarick last season.
Mar 16, 2022 6:05 PM EST
Washington has placed Seals-Jones (concussion) on injured reserve.
Analysis: No surprise here, as Seals-Jones was already ruled out for Washington's regular-season finale. With the team not in the playoff picture, his 2021 campaign has officially come to an end. He will end the year with 30 receptions for 271-yards and two touchdowns. The 26-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
Jan 8, 2022 11:11 AM EST
Seals-Jones (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones made some noise earlier in the season when Logan Thomas missed time with a hamstring injury, but Washington later turned to a timeshare between RSJ and rookie John Bates after Thomas suffered a season-ending ACL tear. Bates now figures to close out the season in a three-down role, though he can't match Thomas or Seals-Jones when it comes to speed/ athleticism. In any case, Seals-Jones finishes the year with a 30-271-2 receiving line on 49 targets, and he's now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent right around the time of his 27th birthday in mid-March.
Jan 7, 2022 9:36 AM EST
Seals-Jones (concussion) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones entered the concussion protocol this past Sunday versus the Eagles after he toppled into a cameraman while attempting to catch a Taylor Heinicke pass along the right side of the end zone. The tight end required a backboard to get off the field, and his lack of practice reps so far this week has him trending in the wrong direction ahead of a Week 18 road game against the Giants. Friday's practice report ultimately could decide Seals-jones' fate for that contest. With Sammis Reyes (hamstring) logging a limited session Thursday, John Bates is the only healthy TE on Washington's active roster.
Jan 6, 2022 10:38 AM EST
Seals-Jones (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: John Bates has been getting more of Washington's TE snaps anyway and should have a three-down role Week 18 against the Giants if Seals-Jones isn't able to play.
Jan 5, 2022 10:32 AM EST
Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Seals-Jones has entered the concussion protocol, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.
Analysis: Seals-Jones was taken off the field on a backboard during Sunday's loss to the Eagles and will have several steps to clear if he hopes to return for Sunday's Week 18 matchup against the Giants. John Bates and Sammis Reyes should see increased work against the Giants if Seals-Jones is unavailable.
Jan 3, 2022 10:26 AM EST
Seals-Jones was forced out of Sunday's game against the Eagles with a neck injury.
Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Seals-Jones -- who will not return to action Sunday -- caught one of his two targets for eight yards. In his absence, John Bates is slated to head Washington's Week 17 tight end corps.
Jan 2, 2022 11:09 AM EST
Seals-Jones caught his lone target for negative four yards in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas.
Analysis: Seals-Jones may have caught the worst of this one-sided affair, as his lone target went backwards and he never got another touch for the remainder of the contest. Backup tight end John Bates flashed his talent in garbage time (2-45-1), so we could see some of RSJ's targets go his way on a fluid depth chart. Most fantasy managers won't be bothered with Seals-Jones heading into a Week 17 matchup against the Eagles.
Dec 26, 2021 10:26 PM EST
Seals-Jones (illness) brought in four of seven targets for 29 yards in Washington's 27-17 loss to the Eagles on Tuesday night.
Analysis: The veteran tight end co-led the team in targets alongside Antonio Gibson and was also second in receptions to his teammate. Seals-Jones is in possession of the top tight end job the rest of the way with Logan Thomas (knee) on injured reserve, so he'll have some utility in a Week 16 road matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night, especially if Taylor Heinicke is able to clear COVID-19 protocols in time for that contest.
Dec 21, 2021 8:31 PM EST
Seals-Jones (illness) is listed as active Tuesday at Philadelphia.
Analysis: Seals-Jones picked up a non-COVID-19 illness over the weekend, but the fact this contest was pushed back allowed the tight end to make himself available for Week 15 action. With Logan Thomas (knee) on injured reserve, Seals-Jones will continue to serve as the No. 1 TE for Washington, while John Bates and Alex Armah are the other available options at the position. Unfortunately for Seals-Jones, he doesn't have much familiarity with the team's spot starter at QB, Garrett Gilbert, who is stepping in for Taylor Heinicke (reserve/COVID-19) and Kyle Allen (reserve/COVID-19).
Dec 21, 2021 2:38 PM EST
Seals-Jones (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Eagles.
Analysis: A non-COVID-19-related illness kept Seals-Jones from practicing Sunday, but he returned to the field as a full participant Monday. Though he'll still carry a designation into the Week 15 contest, Seals-Jones' ability to put in a full practice bodes well for his chances of gaining clearance for Tuesday's game. If active, Seals-Jones will presumably start at tight end, but he'll likely have to split work at tight end with rookie John Bates, who has made a push for more playing time in the second half of the season.
Dec 20, 2021 12:13 PM EST
Seals-Jones didn't participate in Sunday's practice due to an illness, making his status uncertain for Tuesday's game against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Washington hasn't placed Seals-Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but his situation will bear watching over the next two days with 13 members of the Football Team roster still residing on the list as of Sunday. John Bates worked with the first-team offense at Friday's practice and would be in line to start at tight end if Seals-Jones can't gain clearance for Tuesday's game. Washington would likely elevate fullback Alex Armah from the practice squad to provide depth at the position behind Bates in that scenario.
