  • Stephen Anderson: Back to practice squad

    Anderson reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Friday.

    Anderson played a season-high 25 snaps on special teams Thursday and registered an assisted tackle on a punt return. Since the blowout loss to the Raiders was the third time Anderson has been elevated this season, the Chargers will have to sign him to the active roster if they wish to utilize him again this season.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Elevated for TNF

    The Chargers elevated Anderson from the practice squad for Thursday night's game against the Raiders.

    The 30-year-old has appeared in the Chargers' last two games, playing four offensive snaps. With Donald Parham (shoulder) banged up, Anderson could be in line for a little extra work versus Las Vegas.

  • Stephen Anderson: Heads back to practice squad

    Anderson reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Monday.

    Anderson was called up to the active roster for the second straight game. He played 20 snaps -- 18 on special teams, two on offense -- without recording a stat. Anderson can be elevated by the Chargers once more this season before the team would have to sign him to the active roster.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Called up from practice squad

    The Chargers elevated Anderson to the active roster Saturday.

    This is the second time Anderson has been elevated this season after joining the Chargers' practice squad Nov. 15. His first call-up was Week 13 against the Patriots, when he played 17 snaps (15 on special teams and two on offense). Anderson will likely resume a role on special teams if he plays Sunday against the Bears, as Nick Vannett is returning from a concussion.

  • Chargers' Stephen Anderson: Joins active roster

    The Chargers elevated Anderson to their active roster Saturday.

    The veteran tight end's elevation is likely in response to Nick Vannett (concussion) being ruled out for Sunday's contest. Anderson's most recent in-game action came in 2022 with the Cardinals, but he also appeared in 34 games for the Chargers from 2019-21.

  • Stephen Anderson: Joins Chargers' practice squad

    The Chargers signed Anderson to their practice squad Wednesday.

    The 30-year-old has yet to appear in a game this season, but Anderson has 78 career games of NFL experience dating back to 2016. He made 34 of those appearances with the Chargers from 2019 through 2021.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Not on injury report

    Anderson (illness) is absent from the Cardinals' injury report ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Anderson is coming off a one-game absence due to an illness. His absence from the injury report indicates his health is back up to par. Barring any setbacks, he is on track to resume his usual role providing depth at tight end.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Not playing Sunday

    Anderson (illness) is out Sunday against the Falcons, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Anderson was a late scratch for Week 17 and not on the team's inactive list. In his absence, Maxx Williams may see a slight uptick in snaps.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Records two catches in win

    Anderson recorded two receptions for seven yards in Monday's 27-13 loss to the Patriots.

    Zach Ertz (knee) was sidelined for the third game in a row, but Anderson's pair of receptions Monday were his first receptions since the Cardinals' top tight end suffered his season-ending injury. While Ertz is on the mend, rookie Trey McBride appears poised to dominate the playing time at tight end. Anderson has played 36 snaps on offense in total since Ertz exited the lineup.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: More snaps on tap without Ertz

    Anderson is in line for more usage with Zach Ertz (knee) out indefinitely, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Following Ertz's early exit Sunday at the Rams, Anderson easily earned his largest snap share of the campaign, settling at 37 percent of the offensive plays. Anderson saw his first target since Week 2 and has just one catch (on two targets) for two yards through 10 games this season. As such, Anderson's impact likely will be minimal, especially with rookie second-round pick Trey McBride set to take on most of the pass-catching work at tight end in place of Ertz.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Remains limited on offense

    Anderson played three of the Cardinals' 70 snaps on offense and wasn't targeted Sunday in the team's 34-26 loss to the Vikings.

    Anderson has been active in all eight of the Cardinals' games this season, but he's played double-digit snaps on offense on just one occasion and has one reception to his name. He remains firmly behind Zach Ertz and Trey McBride on the depth chart at tight end, and Anderson's outlook is unlikely to improve unless one of the former two players misses time for any reason.

  • Cardinals' Stephen Anderson: Re-signs with Arizona

    The Cardinals re-signed Anderson on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Anderson was released by the Cardinals ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline but has returned to the team on a standard contract after Arizona made a number of roster moves. The 29-year-old tight end appeared in 17 games for the Chargers last season, catching 16 of 19 targets for 165 yards and a score. With Zach Ertz (calf) and Maxx Williams (knee) questionable for Week 1, Anderson may begin the season as the top backup behind rookie second-round pick Trey McBride.

  • Stephen Anderson: Cut by Cards

    Arizona released Anderson on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Anderson failed to secure a depth role on the Cardinals' initial 53-man roster, but that doesn't preclude him from reuniting with the team at a later date. Over 17 games with the Chargers last year, Anderson logged 16 receptions (19 targets) for 165 yards and a touchdown.
