  • Elijah McGuire: Cut from Chiefs' practice squad

    McGuire was cut from the Chiefs' practice squad Wednesday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

    The running back joined the Chiefs' practice unit in October but failed to crack the active roster before being cut Wednesday. McGuire has not appeared in an NFL game since 2018 and will look to find another practice squad opportunity ahead of the 2022 season.

  • Elijah McGuire: Joins Kansas City's practice squad

    The Chiefs signed McGuire to their practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    McGuire will provide depth to the Chiefs' running back group after Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. The 27-year-old has spent time on Kansas City's practice squad the last two seasons, so he should have some familiarity with the system.

  • Elijah McGuire: Reaches injury settlement

    Kansas City released McGuire (ankle) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

    McGuire was injured during the Chiefs' first preseason contest against the 49ers. The 26-year-old has spent time on Kansas City's practice squad the last two seasons and was vying for a depth spot on the final roster this year. The 2017 sixth-round pick will be free to sign with another team once the terms of his settlement are fulfilled.

  • Chiefs' Elijah McGuire: Lands on injured reserve

    McGuire (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday

    McGuire picked up the injury during Saturday's preseason matchup with the 49ers, and he was unable to practice Monday before moving to injured reserve. He won't be able to see the field this season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the Chiefs and is able to sign a new deal.

  • Chiefs' Elijah McGuire: No practice Monday

    McGuire (ankle) is not practicing Monday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    McGuire took his only carry for three yards during Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers, but it appears that he may have dinged up his ankle in the process. The 27-year-old is competing for a depth spot in Kansas City's backfield, and missing practice time could hurt his chances of sticking on the regular-season roster.

  • Chiefs' Elijah McGuire: Signs with Chiefs

    McGuire has signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The 26-year-old, who has spent time on the team's practice squad over the past two seasons, will provide Kansas City with backfield depth behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson. McGuire, a sixth-round draft pick in 2017, last saw regular season action with the Jets in 2018.

  • Elijah McGuire: Getting look from KC

    McGuire will head to Kansas City for a visit with the Chiefs, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    With the team concerned starting back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip during Sunday's win over New Orleans, contingency plans are therefore needed at the position. McGuire offers experience with 591 rushing yards over 180 career carries for the Jets, but he hasn't played in a game in two years. Another former Jet, two-time All-Pro Le'Veon Bell, joined the team in October after being cut by New York, and his Week 15 outing of 76 scrimmage yards and a touchdown was possibly his strongest yet as a Chief.

  • Elijah McGuire: Signing with practice squad

    McGuire will sign with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The Chiefs are making the move after rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and a strained hip in last week's win over the Saints. McGuire will add organizational depth in the backfield behind Le'Veon Bell, Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson (illness). The fourth-year tailback hasn't suited up since 2018 when he rushed 92 times for 276 yards and three touchdowns and caught 19 receptions for 193 yards and a score.

  • Elijah McGuire: Demoted, then cut by Miami

    McGuire reverted to the Dolphins' practice squad Monday and was later cut, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    McGuire got the call to suit up for Miami's Week 14 home test against the defending-champion Chiefs, though he ultimately did not see any action during the contest. Having made stops in Kansas City, Dallas and Miami within the past calendar year, the 26-year-old remains devoid of an NFL appearance since his time with the Jets in 2018.

  • Dolphins' Elijah McGuire: Rises to active roster

    McGuire was promoted to the Dolphins' active roster Saturday.

    Both Myles Gaskin and Matt Breida have been placed on the COVID-19 list, while Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Chiefs. As a result, McGuire could get an immediate opportunity after signing with the practice squad just a few days ago. DeAndre Washington and Patrick Laird still figure to handle a bulk of the work. McGuire last played in 2018, when he suited up for the Jets and posted 276 yards and three touchdowns on 92 carries (3.0 yards per carry) and 193 yards and a score on 19 receptions.

  • Elijah McGuire: Headed to Miami

    McGuire inked a contract with the Dolphins' practice squad Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    McGuire last suited up with the Cowboys' practice squad this season, but he's found a new home in which to attempt to break back into the league. The 26-year-old spent two seasons with the Jets in 2017 and 2018, rushing for 591 yards and four touchdowns on 180 rushing attempts over that span.

  • Elijah McGuire: Cut from Dallas' practice squad

    McGuire was cut from the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's media transaction page.

    McGuire has bounced around a few teams' practice squads over the past two seasons after spending two seasons with the Jets to open his career. He averaged just 3.3 yards per carry over 24 games with New York, and McGuire will hope to get scooped up to the practice squad of another team looking to bolster its running back depth.

  • Elijah McGuire: Heads to Cowboys' practice squad

    The Cowboys signed McGuire to the practice squad Sunday, Todd Archer of reports.

    The Chiefs released McGuire on Saturday, and the 26-year-old running back will look to add depth in Dallas. The Cowboys are carrying just three running backs - Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and Rico Dowdle -- to begin the year, and if any of them are injured, McGuire will likely be promoted to the active roster since he has versatility as a pass-catcher.

  • Chiefs' Elijah McGuire: Signs reserve/future contract

    McGuire signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

    The running back initially signed to the Chiefs' practice squad back in November and he'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason. Both LeSean McCoy and Spencer Ware are slated to become free agents this offseason which could give McGuire added reps this spring.
