Ricky Seals-Jones Carted Off Practice Field

Thursday, August 17, 8:43 PM

Indianapolis Colts tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (foot) was carted off the field during practice on Thursday. The 28-year-old appears to have suffered a right foot injury, but the severity of the injury is unknown right now. Seals-Jones signed with the Colts earlier this month and is fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster. He didn't play at all last season and was released with an injury settlement before the beginning of the 2022 campaign. The team should give an update on his status shortly.

Irv Smith Jr. Not Playing Against Browns

Sunday, January 7, 11:47 AM

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Irv Smith Jr. is a healthy scratch for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Bengals have also chosen to rest cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (shoulder), who came into the game listed as questionable. The Bengals have nothing to play for but pride in the final game of the regular season after being eliminated from postseason contention last week. The Browns are locked into the No. 5 seed for the AFC playoffs, too, so both teams are resting players. With Smith out for Cincy, the Bengals will roll with tight ends Tanner Hudson, Drew Sample and Mitchell Wilcox. None of them specifically are worth chasing for fantasy purposes. The 25-year-old Smith finishes his first year with the Bengals with only 18 receptions for 115 yards and one touchdown in 12 games.
