RB - FA
Jordan Howard has been released by the New Orleans Saints.
Howard has been on New Orleans' roster for part of this season, but the team is now choosing to let him go rather than keep him rostered. The veteran running back has a lot of experience in his career, and him signing to another team's practice squad in the near future is not improbable.
The New Orleans Saints have elevated RB Jordan Howard from the practice squad for tonight's game.
With RB Mark Ingram II out for Monday's contest, the Saints will elevate Howard to play on Monday night. RB Alvin Kamara and TE Taysom Hill will likely carry the bulk of the groundwork, but Howard has shown an ability to be effective in goal-line situations. Howard's addition likely changes very little from a fantasy perspective.
Jordan Howard signed to the Saints practice squad.
This comes after New Orleans lost Latavius Murray to Denver and waiving Tony Jones Jr. who signed with Seattle. Howard will likely be called up to the active roster if Alvin Kamara or Mark Ingram miss time.
Eagles running back Jordan Howard was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, the team announced.
Howard and several other Eagles players were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list early last week, but most of them were activated from the list on Monday. Howard is also dealing with a shoulder injury and was unlikely to play in a meaningless Week 18 game even if not on the COVID list.
The Eagles placed Jordan Howard on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.
Howard presumably tested positive for COVID-19, as Tom Pelissero reported that roughly a dozen Eagles players tested positive prior to being placed on the list. Howard still has time to clear protocol and be activated from the list prior to Saturday's game against the Cowboys, but unless Boston Scott (who is also on the Reserve/COVID-19 list) is unable to play in the game, fantasy managers will want to avoid Howard in any event.
