  • Zander Horvath: Cut from practice squad

    The Steelers released Horvath from their practice squad Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    Horvath spent his rookie season last year with the Chargers, rushing four times for eight yards and catching five of eight targets for eight yards and two touchdowns. He was let go by Los Angeles at the end of training camp and subsequently signed to Pittsburgh's practice squad, but he'll now need to look for a new organization. The Steelers signed fellow fullback Jack Colletto to their practice squad in a move corresponding with Horvath's release.

  • Zander Horvath: Joins Steelers' practice squad

    Pittsburgh signed Horvath to its practice squad Monday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    The 2022 seventh-round pick was waived by the Chargers less than a week ago, but he's already found another opportunity with a new team. As long as Connor Heyward remains healthy, it's unlikely Horvath is elevated to the active roster any time soon.

  • Zander Horvath: Let go by Chargers

    Horvath was waived by the Chargers on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Horvath was waived to make room for newly signed linebacker Tanner Muse. The fullback made 15 appearances for the Chargers as a rookie in 2022, carrying four times for eight yards and adding five receptions for eight yards and two touchdowns.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Missing another matchup

    Horvath (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Despite the trio of limited practices Horvath put forth earlier this week, he'll ultimately miss a second consecutive matchup Sunday due to the high-ankle sprain he sustained back in Week 16. Donald Parham and Tre' McKitty could be in store for additional blocking opportunities as long as Horvath remains sidelined.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Could return Week 18

    Horvath (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

    Horvath sustained a high-ankle sprain during the Week 16 win over Indianapolis, which left him sidelined for last Sunday's victory versus the Rams. The rookie fullback remained limited during each practice Week 18, though he'll still have a chance to suit up before the Chargers' impending playoff berth. Expect Horvath to maintain a role on offense while serving as a core special-teamer when available again.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Will not play Sunday

    Horvath (ankle) is inactive Sunday against the Rams.

    Horvath has still not recovered enough to play, after he suffered a sprained ankle in Monday's win over the Colts. Although his participation on offense is fairly limited, his absence will leave the team without its only fullback and regular special-teams contributor.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Questionable for Week 17

    Horvath (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Horvath suffered a sprained ankle in Monday's win over the Colts. He practiced in limited fashion throughout the week, suggesting he has a decent chance to play. However, his status won't become official until shortly before the Chargers' 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff against the Rams.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Dealing with sprained ankle

    Chargers coach Brandon Staley indicated Tuesday that Horvath suffered an ankle sprain in Monday's win over Indianapolis, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Horvath logged four offensive snaps and seven special-teams snaps in the victory, and he presumably hurt his ankle on one of those 11 plays. The fullback hasn't recorded a carry since Week 11, as he primarily works as a blocker while on offense in addition to being a big part of the Chargers' special-teams unit. His status for Week 17's matchup with the Rams will become clearer through his participation (or lack of it) in practice this week.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Small role on offense

    Horvath played seven of the Chargers' 66 snaps on offense and went without a carry or target in Sunday's 25-24 win over the Cardinals.

    Since scoring touchdowns in both of his first two NFL games in Week 1 and 2, Horvath hasn't found the end zone and has barely been deployed as a runner or pass catcher. Though he's been active for each of the Chargers' subsequent nine contests, he's played single-digit snaps in all but one of those games and has carried three times for six yards while recording two catches for one yard on four targets over that span.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Gets back on stat sheet

    Horvath carried twice for three yards and went without a target while playing nine snaps on offense in Sunday's 30-28 win over the Browns.

    Horvath recorded his first touches since he recorded goal-line touchdown receptions in Weeks 1 and 2. The rookie fullback may continue to see the occasional red-zone or short-yardage carry or target, but projecting when it might happen will remain impossible to predict.

  • Chargers' Zander Horvath: Scores TD again

    Horvath corralled a one-yard touchdown reception in Thursday's 27-24 loss to the Chiefs.

    That's back-to-back weeks the rookie fullback has managed to score at the goal line, and on similar plays to boot. Don't expect this trend to continue as Horvath has played just 29 offensive snaps in two games.
