The Bears are signing Edge Yannick Ngakoue to a one-year, $10.5 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He spent 2022 with the Colts after being traded by the Raiders. Ngakoue totaled 19.5 sacks over the past two seasons but has exceeded 10 just once in seven pro seasons. He has also topped 30 total tackles just once, back in 2017. Ngakoue has primarily been a low-impact IDP factor, especially since leaving the Jaguars (after 2019). He should, at least, step into a starting gig in Chicago. There's upside for deeper big-play leagues.

The Colts have placed EDGE Yannick Ngakoue on IR. He popped up on the injury report Friday with a throat issue that we haven't seen details for. He'll obviously miss the final 2 games now. Indy should remain in solid shape at the edge spots, with Kwity Paye and Dayo Odeyingbo as the starters. Both sit among our top 20 D-linemen in the Week 17 IDP rankings.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner (ribs, illness) and EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is active for tonight's game against the Steelers. EDGE Kwity Paye (ankle) is inactive.

Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers. He finished the practice week with a full Saturday workout, though, after sitting out the previous 2 days. Buckner is listed with a rib issue and illness. We'll confirm his status ahead of Monday's game but would bet on him playing. Colts DT Grover Stewart and Steelers DL Larry Ogunjobi can be fallback options for IDP lineups. Colts edge players Kwity Paye (ankle) and Yannick Ngakoue (back) are also questionable and don't look worth waiting for. Paye missed all 3 days of practice this week. Ngakoue left Friday's practice early and then missed Saturday.

Colts EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He's a lower-level IDP option anyway, though.

Colts DE Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He'll be a lackluster IDP option even if active.

The Raiders are sending DE Yannick Ngakoue to the Colts for CB Rock Ya-Sin. Ngakoue tied for 21st in the league with 63 total pressures last season, his lone year with the Raiders. The 27-year-old (as of March 31) is heading into the final year of his contract and coming off his 1st double-digit sack total since 2017. Indianapolis will be Ngakoue's 5th team since 2019. Pro Football Focus ranked Ya-Sin 34th in coverage among all 236 active CBs last year. He should claim a starting gig opposite Trayvon Mullen in Vegas, with CB Casey Hayward an unrestricted free agent. We'll see whether the Raiders make other moves at the position.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and DE Carl Nassib (pec, toe) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Ngakoue is in play for IDP use, but the hamstring certainly adds risk.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden is "optimistic" that DE Yannick Ngakoue will be able to play against the Steelers today. Ngakoue is questionable with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 1 early and limited his practice participation all week. The fact that he was able to participate each day is encouraging, but there's obviously at least some risk of re-injury here. Ngakoue is in play for IDP lineups, but keep the risk in mind as you're making your decisions. He has settled into low DL3 territory in our Week 2 DL rankings.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He left Week 1 early with the injury but managed limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning. DE Carl Nassib (pectoral, toe) is also questionable. He missed practice Wednesday before putting in limited Thursday and Friday workouts. The pair make up 2 of Las Vegas' top 3 at the position.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue left with a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Ravens. The team deemed him questionable to return, but he was standing on the sideline with no helmet. We'll see about the severity.

The Raiders made DE Clelin Ferrell inactive for the Monday-night game against Baltimore. Vegas' signing of DE Carl Nassib and then DE Yannick Ngakoue to sizable contracts the past 2 offseasons pointed to dissatisfaction with the position group. But this is a noteworthy step because the Raiders drafted Ferrell 4th overall just 3 years ago. Consider Ngakoue, Maxx Crosby and Carl Nassib locked in as the Raiders' top 3 edge players heading into the opener.

The Raiders have agreed to a 2-year, $26 million deal with DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a questionable signing for a defense that has Maxx Crosby and 2019 first-round pick Clelin Ferrell in place, plus Carl Nassib, who arrived on a sizable free-agent deal last offseason. The money certainly points to Ngakoue taking over a primary pass-rushing role. We'll see what that means for everyone else's playing time. Ngakoue endured a rough 2020 that saw him get traded twice (from Jacksonville to Minnesota to Baltimore). His 8 sacks matched the previous season, but Ngakoue managed a career-low 11 QB hits (including just 3 over 9 games with the Ravens). We won't be pumped about Ngakoue in IDP drafts for 2021.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are active for today's game against the Titans. CB Jimmy Smith is also active for the 1st time since Week 14. Smith hasn't played more than half the snaps in a game since Week 9. A healthier Baltimore defense is obviously bad news for Tennessee's offense, though this game still carries plenty of shootout potential. The 54-point over/under comes in 3.5 points higher than any other game on the slate.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (shoulder) and OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Humphrey played through the issue last week and made it through a full practice Friday. So he should be good to go. Ngakoue also progressed from missing practice all last week and then sitting out the game to participating every day this week and finishing with a full Friday workout. So he appears on track to return. We'll check the status of both on Sunday.

Ravens EDGE Yannick Ngakoue (thigh) is inactive for today's regular-season finale against the Bengals. CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Marcus Peters and DE Calais Campbell, though, are all active after entering the day questionable.

Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey (knee, shoulder), DE/OLB Yannick Ngakoue (thigh), CB Marcus Peters (calf) and DE Calais Campbell (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Humphrey, Peters and Campbell all finished the week with full practices, so we'd guess they'll be ready to play. Ngakoue, on the other hand, missed practice all week. There may be coaching decisions involved with playoffs starting next week, but Baltimore has not yet clinched their spot. We'll check on all statuses before the game Sunday.
