Jakeem Grant (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Grant will be a big loss for Chicago on offense and special teams as they try to generate points, so hopefully someone can step up. The dynamic weapon will have a day less than usual to get cleared for Week 16.
Jakeem Grant has entered the concussion protocol.
Grant did a semi-flip and landed on his head, so he went to the locker room and could be done for the night. If so, Chicago will rely more on Damiere Byrd and others behind Darnell Mooney.
The Bears are acquiring Jakeem Grant.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero says Miami is getting a 2023 sixth-round pick in return for Grant. The dynamic receiver and returner will bring more juice to Chicago’s roster, but Grant isn’t a highly recommended pickup in redraft leagues quite yet.
Jakeem Grant has a high-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Grant will be out in Week 17 as Miami looks to make the postseason, and it's possible he doesn't return for the playoffs. In 14 regular season games, Grant caught 36 passes for 373 yards and one touchdown, but the biggest loss will be on special teams where he was one of the best punt returners in the league.
Jakeem Grant leaves game with apparent knee injury.
Grant has his knee landed on and twisted awkwardly, and he was in immediate pain grabbing at his knee area. Hopefully it’s just a situation where Grant was more scared than anything after getting twisted up, but we’ll let you know when more information becomes available.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially active for Week 16.
While teammate DeVante Parker is out with his hamstring injury, Grant is back after missing one game with his own hammy issue. Grant has definite upside facing a Raiders defense that's struggled this season, and the dynamic receiver's presence will also be a boost on special teams for Miami.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 15.
DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) are also inactive. No Grant is a blow to the Dolphins on both offense and special teams today against the Pats.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 15.
Grant and teammate DeVante Parker are both listed as questionable with hamstring injuries, and the Dolphins will likely see how they’re feeling on gameday. Miami utilizes Grant on both offense and special teams, so hopefully he’s able to get out there for a key matchup in a crowded playoff race.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) was officially limited in today's practice.
Grant and DeVante Parker were both on the practice field in a limited capacity today, so both figure to have a pretty good shot to play in Week 15. Ideally, Grant will be able to string together two more practice tomorrow and Friday.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is week-to-week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
This news probably makes Grant doubtful to face the Patriots next Sunday, and after that will also be up in the air. Miami is extremely thin on offense with multiple running backs out, as well as DeVante Parker (leg) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) also going down yesterday; they might need to win a slugfest next week against New England.
Jakeem Grant (leg) is questionable to return for the Dolphins.
DeVante Parker is already questionable with a leg injury of his own, so the Miami offense is even more shorthanded as the second half begins against the Chiefs. Hopefully Grant can return soon.
The Dolphins are placing Jakeem Grant on injured reserve.
Grant is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, and his season is now over. This is a hit to Miami on both offense and special teams, but the team is playing it safe with a player they just signed to an extension over the summer. Grant figures to remain a key part of the Dolphins' plans moving forward, but he might not get enough looks on offense to deliver consistent fantasy value in 2020.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is out for the rest of today.
Grant has been ruled out at the beginning of the second half after getting injured earlier in the game. Grant did not have any receptions before leaving the game. Hopefully this isn't an injury that lands Grant on injured reserve, but it's certainly possible this late in the season.
Jakeem Grant (ankle) is questionable to return for the Dolphins.
The Dolphins could use Grant as they look to climb out of a 14-0 hole against the Browns, but we'll update you when more information becomes available on the dynamic receiver/returner's status.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 6.
The Dolphins are playing things safe with Grant, as the team is not going to rush players back in a season many are calling a “tanking” year. Grant can remain on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 6.
Grant was limited in practice all week, and he's probably a gametime call for Sunday against the Redskins. However, Grant is not a highly recommended fantasy option if he does return to the lineup.
Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is officially questionable to return for the Dolphins.
With Miami down 20 late in the fourth quarter, don't expect Grant to return to today's game. Grant had one reception for six yards before leaving.
The Dolphins have signed Jakeem Grant to a four-year extension, according to Ian Rapoport.
Grant only has 34 career receptions through three seasons, but he is a valuable returner for a Miami team that needs any edge it can get. Last season, Grant returned both a kickoff and punt for a touchdown, and perhaps he will have an expanded offensive role under a new coaching staff.
Jakeem Grant is undergoing season-ending lower-leg surgery, according to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.
Grant was injured in Week 10 against the Dolphins, and unfortunately surgery is necessary. The good news is this wasn't a ruptured Achilles like was initially feared, and Beasley says Grant will "absolutely" be back for the start of the 2019 season and might be ready for the spring. So it sounds like he'll be back for training camp at the latest. Grant's season ends with 21 receptions for 268 yards and two touchdowns along with one carry for five yards. He also had an 102-yard kick return touchdown and a 71-yard punt return touchdown, so obviously this is a big loss for the Dolphins. We wish him luck on his surgery and recovery.
Jakeem Grant did not suffer a torn Achilles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
A torn Achilles was the obvious fear after Grant, who had been dealing with an Achilles issue, suffered a non-contact leg injury in yesterday's game. This is obviously great news, but Grant is likely to miss some time. The bye is coming up for the Dolphins, though, and we'll see what happens. Injured reserve might still be a possibility.
Jakeem Grant leaves with apparent lower leg injury.
On a route late in the third quarter, Grant just pulled up and immediately hopped off the field without putting any pressure on his left leg. He was listed as questionable with an Achilles injury entering this game, and unfortunately it had the look of a potential blown Achilles. Hopefully it's not as serious as it looks, but Grant's day is almost certainly over. Grant did not have any receptions before leaving the game.
Jakeem Grant (Achilles) is officially active for the Dolphins.
The speedy receiver is good to go against the Packers, but he’s more of a real-life contributor than he is a reliable fantasy option right now. Grant is only a recommended Week 10 play in deeper leagues.
Jakeem Grant (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Week 10.
We expect Grant will play against the Packers, but it's no lock. If Grant can't go, DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, and Danny Amendola would all likely play close to 100% of the snaps in Week 10. The Dolphins don't play until 4:25 PM ET on Sunday, so his status might not be set until around 3:00 PM ET.
Jakeem Grant catches one pass against the Jets.
Grant gained 16 yards on his lone Week 9 reception. The speedy receiver doesn't get enough looks in the passing game to be trusted in fantasy lineups right now.
Jakeem Grant catches four passes in Week 8.
Grant gained 36 yards on his four receptions versus the Texans, and he drew eight targets, which was second on the team behind DeVante Parker (nine). Grant was involved in one of the highlight plays of the night, as he appeared to make a nice catch in traffic, but it was popped out on a big hit before flying off a helmet and to Parker for a 46-yard gain. If Kenny Stills (groin) remains out next week, Grant will remain a clear starter against the Jets.
Jakeem Grant catches both targets in Week 7.
Grant gained 32 yards on his two receptions against the Lions. With Albert Wilson injured and likely to miss a lot of time, Grant might become a clear top-three receiver for the Dolphins. He'll look to make some big plays on Thursday night against the Texans.
Jakeem Grant catches three passes in Week 6.
Grant gained 32 yards on his three receptions (four targets) against the Bears, and he didn't get any opportunities as a returner. Grant is a clear top-four receiver for Miami right now, but he's not a recommended fantasy option.
Jakeem Grant (shoulder) was limited in practice.
A limited practice is a good start to the week for Grant after he injured his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. We'll monitor his practice status, but he should be good to go for Week 6 against the Bears.
Jakeem Grant takes a punt to the house in Week 5 loss.
Grant showed excellent patience and breakaway speed on a 71-yard touchdown, but he didn't make an offensive impact on one target. While the 25-year-old could find the end zone on any given play, he isn't a recommended fantasy option and is a better real-life asset for Miami.
Jakeem Grant caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Grant looks like he will remain an offensive factor in some capacity for as long as DeVante Parker is inactive, but he is probably too hit-or-miss to consider for fantasy lineups. The Dolphins will look to get back on track against the 3-1 Bengals next Sunday.
Jakeem Grant scores twice against the Raiders.
Grant has played well for the Dolphins to open the year, and he came through with two big touchdowns on his two lone receptions in a big Week 3 performance. One score was an 18-yard from Ryan Tannehill, and the other was a 52-yarder on a trick play in which he caught the pass from Albert Wilson. Overall, Grant had two receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. DeVante Parker is back in the lineup for the Dolphins now, so it's a spread-the-wealth passing attack that makes it difficult to trust Grant in fantasy lineups, but it's good to see him making huge plays for his team.
Jakeem Grant gets three offensive touches in Week 2.
Grant had two receptions for 27 yards and one carry for five yards in a win against the Jets. He's another member of Miami's offense that makes them hard to defend, but Grant is not a reliable fantasy option at the moment.
Jakeem Grant has 102-yard kick return touchdown in Week 1 win.
Grant, who actually drew a start at receiver with the team going with four starters at the position, helped spark the Dolphins' 27-20 win over the Titans. On offense, Grant caught five passes for 38 yards. He will likely remain involved until DeVante Parker (finger) returns, but Grant is probably too big-play dependent to rely on as a fantasy option.
Jakeem Grant has cleared concussion protocol.
The third-year receiver is ready to go against the Titans. With DeVante Parker (finger) set to miss Week 1, Grant should have a solid role on offense along with Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, and Albert Wilson. Grant is also expected to be Miami's primary returner, so those in leagues that give points for returns should consider him in lineups.
Jakeem Grant suffered a concussion.
Grant is out for the rest of tonight's preseason game against the Ravens. He took a hit to the head in the first half, and he's now in concussion protocol. Grant has a couple of weeks to get cleared for the season opener on September 9.
Jakeem Grant says he's more committed this season.
Grant spoke to the media after today's practice sessions and admitted that the team signing former Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson "added fuel to my fire." Grant also added that he "didn't have it all down" in previous years but has his head in the playbook this year. It sounds like the electric receiver is as committed and motivated as ever heading into 2018. However, after the signings of Wilson and Danny Amendola, Grant might struggle to carve out a sizable role in Miami's offense—even after they traded Jarvis Landry to the Browns. The Dolphins receiving group will be one to keep an eye on this summer.
Jakeem Grant caught three passes for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.
Grant exploded last week against the Chiefs, but he was contained in this one. The second-year receiver finishes the season with 13 receptions for 203 yards and two touchdowns. He should be able to earn a roster spot next summer as a return man and depth at receiver.
Jakeem Grant goes off in Dolphins' loss.
The second-year receiver had a monster game against Kansas City in today's Christmas Eve matchup, catching four of six targets for 107 yards and a touchdown along with one carry for three yards. His touchdown was the long of the game (65 yards) on a play where he caught an in-breaking route and broke through two tackles before racing to the end zone for six. This is the first 100-yard receiving game of Grant's career, and he'll look to continue building some momentum toward a possible larger role in 2018 when the Dolphins face the Bills in Week 17.
Jakeem Grant gets two offensive touches in Week 15.
Grant had a seven-yard carry and 13-yard reception (on one target), and he also returned punts and kicks for the Dolphins. Grant isn't a recommended fantasy option right now, as his role isn't big enough on offense.
Jakeem Grant scores in Dolphins' win.
Grant caught two passes for 42 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots, with the score coming on a go route where he made a great leaping catch amid good coverage by Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler. It was the second-year receiver's first career receiving touchdown, and the team was pretty fired up on the sideline after the play. Grant isn't a fantasy option, but it's good to see him make plays for his team.
Jakeem Grant gets on target in Dolphins' win.
Grant, who was a starter with DeVante Parker (ankle) out, had a four-yard reception against Atlanta. Even if Parker misses another game, Grant shouldn't be in most fantasy lineups.
Jakeem Grant gets two targets against the Titans.
He caught one pass for -1 yards. He'll contribute more in real life for the Dolphins than your fantasy team.
Jakeem Grant catches only target in Week 3.
He gained 12 yards on the reception, and the second-year receiver is a better contributor for the Dolphins than he is for fantasy teams at the moment.
Jakeem Grant caught four passes for 141 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' preseason finale.
The highlight was a 65-yard score in the second quarter, as he simply ran past the corner and safety on a go route down the right sideline. He will make some big plays, but the re-signing of Kenny Stills in the offseason hurt any chances of Grant being a fantasy factor to start 2017.
Jakeem Grant breaks long touchdown in Dolphins' third preseason game.
Grant had only one catch in the game, and he made the most of it, catching a quick post and breaking a tackle before darting 69 yards for a touchdown. It was surprising to see the small receiver brush off a tackle like that, and once he did, no one was going to catch him with his great speed. Grant will almost certainly make the Dolphins, and he'll likely be their primary punt returner.
Jakeem Grant catches one-of-two targets in exhibition game against the Ravens.
Grant had a 12-yard catch and also returned one punt for eight yards. The Dolphins receiver did leave the game with an Achilles issue, but it isn't a serious injury and he should be fine. Grant will look to make an impact in Miami's third preseason game this Thursday against the Eagles.
Jakeem Grant catches two passes in Week 1 of the preseason.
The second-year receiver had eight yards on the two receptions and he also returned three punts, but didn't do much damage there. Grant is a dynamic player, but his roster spot probably isn't locked in yet.
