The Jaguars have confirmed that S Johnathan Cyprien suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Eagles and is now working his way through the league protocol. We'll see whether he can progress quickly enough to make it back for Week 2. Despite his empty 1st half against a struggling Philly offense in Week 1, Cyprien remains a high-ceiling IDP option the rest of the way.
The Falcons on Monday traded LB Duke Riley and a 6th-round pick to the Eagles for S Johnathan Cyprien and a 7th-rounder. The move looks like an attempt by Atlanta to get a replacement for SS Keanu Neal, who suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Week 3. Kemal Ishmael started in his place against the Titans. We'll see if Ishmael's still in the lineup for Week 5. Riley, meanwhile, joins a crowd at LB for the Eagles. He'll have some climbing to do before he's relevant.
The Titans announced Thursday that S Johnathan Cyprien will miss the 2018 season after tearing his left ACL in Wednesday's practice. Fortunately for Tennessee, the free-agent market remains oddly robust with safeties. Big names available include former 49er Eric Reid and former Saint Kenny Vaccaro. We'll see if the Titans add something. Cyprien disappointed IDP owners a year ago, in part because he lost 6 games to a hamstring injury.
Titans S Johnathan Cyprien (back) is active for today's game against the 49ers. He remains a high-risk IDP option after missing the full week of practice.
Titans S Johnathan Cyprien is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. He missed practice all week with a lower-back injury. We'd try not to use him in IDP lineups even if he turns up active. We'll have to wait until about 3 p.m. ET Sunday to update his game status.
Titans S Johnathan Cyprien missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, despite playing 97% of the snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The injury report on the team website lists "hamstring," but The Tennessean reports that he's dealing with a lower-back issue. The hamstring would be more worrisome, given that it cost him 6 games in the 1st half of the season. Either way, we'll keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.
