Buccaneers EDGE Carl Nassib (groin) is active for today's game against the Falcons. It's an upside sack matchup, and he hit the weekend expected to return despite the "questionable" tag. Nassib makes for a solid IDP option this week.
Buccaners EDGE Carl Nassib (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Nassib progressed from limited early-week practices to a full workout Friday. That points to him likely playing in the upside sack matchup with Atlanta. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.
Update: ESPN's Jenna Laine reports that Nassib will play.
Browns DE Carl Nassib suffered a broken hand in Sunday's loss to the Ravens and could miss multiple games. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the rookie will have surgery, and then doctors will assess how long he'll miss. Nassib had started well after a strong preseason. A bad Cleveland D will only be worse without him on the field.
The Browns spent their 1st pick of Round 3 in the NFL Draft on DE Carl Nassib. At 6'6 and 272 pounds, Nassib seemed to project as more of a 4-3 DE, so it'll be interesting to see whether Cleveland puts him at end or OLB. That'll probably matter more for his position designation in fantasy than his actual stat outlook. Nassib's 15.5 sacks in his lone starting season at Penn State makes him an intriguing edge player.
