  • Sean McGrath: Let go by Lions

    McGrath has been released by the Lions.

    McGrath, who signed with the Lions this spring, was unable to separate himself as either a blocking specialist or pass catcher this summer. The tight end will immediately become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Lions' Sean McGrath: Headed to Detroit

    McGrath signed with the Lions on Thursday.

    The terms of McGrath's contract were not disclosed, though the team did waive fellow tight end Wes Saxton in a corresponding move. McGrath spent the last two seasons with the Chargers, where he appeared in 31 games but didn't catch a touchdown while playing largely in the shadow of Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry. The door is open in Detroit for more playing time at the tight end position following the departure of Eric Ebron, though McGrath will still have to compete for snaps with the likes of Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo, leaving little fantasy upside to be had.

  • Sean McGrath: Entering free agency

    McGrath didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Chargers and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

    McGrath spent the past two years with the Chargers, serving primarily on special teams but also logging snaps on offense as a blocking specialist. He'll likely fill a similar role wherever he may land this offseason.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Sees limited usage in win

    McGrath caught both of his targets for 23 yards in the 14-7 win over the Jets on Sunday.

    With Hunter Henry placed on injured reserve due to a spleen injury, McGrath seemed set to receive a larger volume of targets Sunday. That didn't end up being the case, as Antonio Gates rekindled the flames of old with quarterback Philip Rivers, turning back the clock to put together a vintage performance (six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown). Given both McGrath and third-string tight end Jeff Cumberland saw less than 30 snaps Sunday, it seems unlikely either player will find themselves in a position of fantasy relevance in Week 17.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Active Sunday

    McGrath (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    McGrath practiced in a limited capacity every day this week, which was good enough for the tight end to warrant an active status in Week 5. Despite suiting up, McGrath has seen just one target in three games this season, so he's unlikely to have a spot in the offensive game plan as long as Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates remain at full strength.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Questionable to play Sunday

    McGrath (foot) was a full participant in Friday's practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    McGrath was a full participant in practice all week, so there is likely no real concern surrounding the tight end's health for the weekend. Still, McGrath will likely be a game-time decision Sunday.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Questionable for Sunday

    McGrath (foot) popped up on Friday's injury report and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

    His questionable designation is somewhat surprising, as he was a full participant at practice all week. Thus, there could be more to the situation than the team has announced. Until more clarity is gained, the depth tight end and special teams performer looks to be a game-time decision.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Gearing up Sunday

    McGrath (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.

    McGrath was a full participant in the week prior, so it was expected that he would make his season debut Sunday. Still, it's unlikely McGrath collects many snaps behind Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates on the depth chart.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Questionable for Week 2

    McGrath (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    McGrath was a full participant at practice this week, so he seems to be on track to make his season debut Sunday. The 29-year-old will likely battle rookie Sean Culkin for reps as the Chargers' third tight end if he is able to play.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Practicing at full speed

    McGrath (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    McGrath will be available to play Sunday against the Dolphins, but given that he's the fourth tight end on the depth chart, there's a real possibility that he'll be a healthy inactive for the contest.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Inactive for MNF

    McGrath (knee) is inactive for Monday's season opener against the Broncos.

    McGrath, who's bouncing back from a sprained knee, was initially tabbed as questionable to play after being a limited participant in practice all week. His next chance to suit up will come in Week 2 when the Chargers take on the Dolphins.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Questionable for Monday

    McGrath (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Broncos, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    McGrath was limited throughout practice this week and did not play in any preseason games, so his status for Monday is fairly unknown. The 29-year-old would likely be in line for duties as the third tight end with rookie Sean Culkin at best, given his limited reps thus far.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Limited participant Thursday

    McGrath (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

    McGrath did not play in any preseason games after hyper-extending his knee in early August, so even limited participation is a good sign. If the 29-year-old is unable to play against the Broncos on Monday, rookie Sean Culkin is the only tight end on the Chargers' roster to fill the No. 3 role, which he likely earned in McGrath's absence anyway.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Doesn't play Saturday

    McGrath (knee) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    McGrath has yet to take the field after hyperextending his knee at the beginning of August. Thankfully for him, McGrath's main competition for the No. 3 role behind Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates is hurt as well, as Jeff Cumberland has also missed multiple weeks thanks to a hamstring injury.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Doesn't play Sunday

    McGrath (knee) was inactive for Sunday's preseason game against the Saints, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

    McGrath is still dealing with a hyperextended knee that he suffered in practice last Friday. Should he eventually return to the field, McGrath will be in competition for the No. 3 tight-end spot behind Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Will sit out Sunday

    McGrath (knee) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Seahawks, Eric D. Williams of ESPN reports.

    McGrath was absent from Friday's practice after he hyperextended his knee, and he is yet to be given a timetable for his recovery. With Jeff Cumberland (leg) also out, the competition for the No. 3 tight end spot behind Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates will be put on hold until both are healthy and can return to preseason play.

  • Chargers' Sean McGrath: Misses practice due to injured knee

    McGrath missed Friday's practice after hyperextending his knee, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    McGrath apparently injured his knee during Wednesday's heated scrimmage with the new crosstown rival Rams, which forced him to miss Friday's practice. It's unclear how severe the injury may be, but it shouldn't be terribly impactful for fantasy owners given Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates sit above McGrath on the most recent depth chart update.
