Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is inactive for today's game against the Lions. It's the 2nd straight game he has missed with illness. Amani Hooker should start again in his place but isn't a high-level IDP option. He's been OK in 2 games of full-time duty this year, posting 6 tackles (3 solo) and 1 INT among 2 passes defensed at Baltimore; and then 7 tackles (5 solo, 1 for loss) last week against Jacksonville.
The Titans have ruled S Kenny Vaccaro out for today's game against the Ravens and placed him in the concussion protocol. It was a late-developing situation. Vaccaro was limited Thursday and listed with a neck injury but returned for full participation Friday. Joshua Kalu looks like the next man up at SS for Tennessee but isn't a strong IDP option.
Titans S Kenny Vaccaro left last Sunday's win over the Raiders early with a concussion. He managed full practices Thursday and Friday, though, following a limited Wednesday workout. That seems to point to Vaccaro being ready for Sunday's game against the Texans. We'll keep an eye out for final clearance.
The Titans have agreed to a 4-year extension with S Kenny Vaccaro and made official the release of S Johnathan Cyprien. Vaccaro didn't put up special fantasy numbers with Tennessee last season, but he's capable of spot-starter production for fantasy football.
Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Vaccaro missed the past 2 games with an elbow injury and put in just limited practices this week. He's not a strong enough asset to gamble on before proving he's all the way back.
Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after dislocating his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee signed Vaccaro as a free agent to step in after starter Johnathan Cyprien landed on IR. We'll see if the team looks outside the roster for help over the next few weeks.
After visiting with several free-agent safeties, the Titans have reached a deal with former Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, ESPN reports. That comes, of course, after Tennessee lost S Johnathan Cyprien for the season. We'll see if Vaccaro can work his way into the starting lineup alongside S Kevin Byard. Vaccaro's a better fantasy player than real player.
Saints S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington with the groin injury that kept him out last week. Vaccaro didn't practice at all this week and looks like a shaky bet for your IDP lineup.
The Saints have ruled S Kenny Vaccaro out for Sunday's game against the Bills because of a groin injury. Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports that Vaccaro said he doesn't expect the injury to linger. S Vonn Bell saw increased playing time last week, when Vaccaro left in the 1st half.
The Saints benched S Kenny Vaccaro during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Vaccaro had admitted to poor coverage play against the Vikings in Week 1 but seemed surprised by Sunday's move. "I know Gronk had two catches on me, really great catches, and that was about it," he said afterward, per ESPN's Mike Triplett. "That's all that really happened. The next thing I know, I'm sitting next to Coach Payton." We'll see where this goes. Rumors also floated over the past week that the Saints were looking into trading Vaccaro, whose contract ends after this season. HC Sean Payton downplayed the rumors, but a move would probably be good for Vaccaro's playing time at this point. He's droppable in most IDP leagues this week. There are too many viable DB options to merit riding a safety with a short leash.
The Saints announced Friday that S Kenny Vaccaro has dropped his appeal of a 4-game suspension for a PED violation. That means he'll miss the final 4 weeks to serve the ban. Vonn Bell has already been a full-time player with Vaccaro around, and Jairus Byrd has been near that level. We'll see exactly what New Orleans will do to fill in for Vaccaro.
The Saints list S Kenny Vaccaro (ankle), MLB James Laurinaitis (quad) and OLB Dannell Ellerbe (quad) as questionable for Sunday's game in San Diego. According to ESPN's Mike Triplett, Vaccaro has expressed confidence that he'll play after missing Week 3. Laurinaitis was added to the injury report this week and hasn't spoken to reporters since. Ellerbe just returned to practice this week after missing the 1st 3 games. If he remains out of the lineup, Craig Robertson would start in his place again. Should Ellerbe return, IDP owners might want to wait and see him get through a game before using him. Robertson has delivered strong numbers to date, though, indicating the upside in the position.
Saints S Kenny Vaccaro sat out practice Thursday with an ankle issue that knocked him temporarily out of Sunday's loss to the Giants. Vaccaro suffered the injury in the middle of the 3rd quarter, though, yet missed only 6 total defensive snaps. We'd bet on him being OK to play Monday night against the Falcons, but we'll have to watch his status through the weekend. Given the Monday-night kickoff, we'll hope to get a meaningful update before the Sunday games.
The Saints jumped up into Round 2 via trade with the Patriots to pick S Vonn Bell. The former Buckeye might have trouble starting right away, with safeties Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro still around, but New Orleans has continued to need help in the secondary. Bell's a late-round option in IDP dynasty rookie drafts.
The Saints placed S Kenny Vaccaro on IR Wednesday after he fractured his left ankle in Sunday's loss at Carolina. S Roman Harper stepped in against the Panthers and figures to start Sunday against the Bucs. Check our DB rankings on Friday to see if Harper carries any sleeper appeal.
