LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBto retire
Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson will sign a 1-day contract and retire as a Charger on Monday. LT, of course, spent the first 9 seasons of his career in San Diego before finishing with 2 in New York. He’s 5th all-time with 13,684 rushing yards, and his 162 total TDs rank 3rd across all positions in league history. Tomlinson finished as a top-7 fantasy back in 8-straight years from 2001-2008, highlighted by #1 rankings in 2006 and 2007. LT will go down as the best RB of the 2000s and is a lock for the Hall of Fame.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBlikely retired
Free-agent RB LaDainian Tomlinson says he's 95% sure he'll retire. He did leave the door open, saying that he'd return for a 12th season if the right situation presented itself. That situation would likely be a 3rd-down role on a championship contender (Packers). LT hasn't drawn any interest on the open market though. While he's remained a capable pass-catcher, Tomlinson has averaged just 3.7 yards per carry over the past 4 seasons. The future Hall-of-Famer's career is likely over.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBwants to play in 2012
Free-agent RB LaDainian Tomlinson confirmed that he wants to play another season. "I do want to continue to play," LT said. "I still think I’m a viable option out of backfield." The numbers would suggest otherwise. Tomlinson averaged just 3.7 yards per carry last year and hasn't topped 4.1 since 2007. He's still capable of producing in the passing game though -- he caught 42 balls in 2011 -- so he figures to draw some interest as a 3rd-down back. But LT will only be a fantasy option in the deepest of PPR leagues.

Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson reinjured his left knee early in Sunday's game against the Redskins. He's being called questionable to return, but we doubt he'll be back out there.

LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBprobable for Week 13
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee) made it through a full week of practice and is probable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. LT figures to split change-of-pace work with RB Joe McKnight. Neither guy is a recommended fantasy option.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBback at practice Wednesday
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he should be able to play against the Redskins this weekend. Look for LT to split change-of-pace work with RB Joe McKnight.

LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBruled out for Week 11
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee) has officially been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. He's tentatively expected back for Week 12. In the meantime, Joe McKnight will step in as New York's #2 RB. We'd only expect him to receive a handful of touches, though, so he's not a fantasy option. LT's absence gives RB Shonn Greene a bit more upside.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBsuffers setback Tuesday
Attempting to practice on Tuesday, Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson suffered a setback with his sprained knee. Don't count on him playing against the Broncos on Thursday night. That'd mean an increased workload for RB Shonn Greene, and a few extra touches for RB Joe McKnight.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBhas sprained MCL
An MRI on Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson's left knee revealed a sprained MCL. He suffered the injury near the end of Sunday night's loss to the Patriots. It's a relatively minor ailment, but LT is unlikely to be ready for this Thursday night's game against the Broncos. In that case, RB Joe McKnight would step in as the change-of-pace back. He'd likely only see a handful of touches, though, and won't be a recommended fantasy option.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBhas a knee injury
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson limped off the field late in Sunday night's game against the Patriots. HC Rex Ryan confirmed afterwards that LT suffered a knee injury and will go for an MRI on Monday. Tomlinson hasn't topped 10 touches since Week 3 and is only worth hanging onto in deep leagues. We should have an update on his status this afternoon.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBwill make "ceremonial" start
Jets HC Rex Ryan announced that RB LaDainian Tomlinson will make a "ceremonial" start against his old team this Sunday. He'll likely be in for the 1st play before giving way to RB Shonn Greene. The division of labor in New York's backfield will be unchanged.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBprobable for Week 6
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson (calf) is listed as probable for Week 6 after putting in another full practice on Saturday. LT will be available for his usual change-of-pace duties behind RB Shonn Greene against the Dolphins on Monday night.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBputs in full practice Friday
After being limited on Thursday, Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson (calf) put in a full workout on Friday. He's fine for Monday night's game against the Dolphins. LT has seen just 7 touches the past 2 weeks and is a weak fantasy option.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBlimited on Thursday
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson was added to the injury report on Thursday with a calf injury. He was able to put in a limited practice, so he should be able to play against the Dolphins on Monday night. But it's always concerning when a new injury pops up mid-week, especially when it's a 32-year-old like LT. He should only be considered a bye-week fill-in for PPR leaguers.
LaDainian Tomlinson SDC -RBready to assume 3rd-down role
Jets RB LaDainian Tomlinson once again confirmed that he's willing to take on a reduced role as the team's 3rd-down back this year. "Let me do a lot of the pass catching and the blocking and kind of that third-down role and still be able to take some handoffs," LT said. At this point, it couldn't be more clear that RB Shonn Greene is set to take over as New York's workhorse. He's a good bet for 300+ carries.
