Saints' Isaac Yiadom: Sustains injury Week 18
Yiadom was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Falcons with a concussion, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Yiadom largely played on special teams during the first half of the season, but he's seen more action on defense over the past six games, playing at least 71 percent of defensive snaps in each contest. This allowed the 2018 third-round pick to tally a career-high 14 passes defended to go along with 36 tackles. With top cornerback Marshon Lattimore (ankle) still on IR, the Saints will be left with three healthy cornerbacks between Paulson Adebo, Alontae Taylor and Shemar Jean-Charles.... See More ...

Saints' Isaac Yiadom: Inks new deal
The Saints signed Yiadom on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Yiadom is now set to remain in New Orleans for the time being following Thursday's transaction. The 27-year-old began last season as a member of the Texans before he was let go in November. The Saints signed him to their practice squad two days later, and Yiadom eventually served as a special-teams contributor across the team's final six games in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Isaac Yiadom: Let go Tuesday
Yiadom was waived by the Texans on Tuesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Yiadom was let go to help make room on Houston's 53-man roster for running back Eno Benjamin, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday. The 26-year-old cornerback recorded 10 tackles while primarily playing on special teams over 16 games with the Packers last season, and he has yet to log a defensive statistic in 2022. Yiadom will now pass through waivers before hitting free agency, should he go unclaimed.... See More ... See Less

Texans' Isaac Yiadom: Sitting out Week 3
Yiadom (thigh) is out for Sunday's matchup against the Bears.
While it is unclear when he sustained the injury, Yiadom did not practice in any fashion Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

Yiadom (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

Yiadom (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
It's unclear whether Yiadom tested positive for the virus or is considered a close contact, but regardless, he'll be away from the team until he clears the necessary protocols.

Packers' Isaac Yiadom: Likely to see more work
Yiadom is likely to start in place of Kevin King (shoulder) in Sunday's matchup against the Bears, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
Yiadom has seen around 20 defensive snaps per game to this point in the campaign as a rotational corner. However, with King sidelined, Yiadom should be in line for his biggest role of the campaign. Rasul Douglas is also a candidate to see more snaps.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Isaac Yiadom: Shipped to Green Bay
Yiadom was acquired by the Packers from the Giants on Tuesday in exchange for cornerback Josh Jackson, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The two teams will swap depth corners, with Yiadom heading to Green Bay after totaling 46 tackles, a half-sack, a forced fumble and five pass breakups in 16 games last season. He should compete with Chandon Sullivan for a depth role in the Packers' secondary behind Jaire Alexander, Kevin King and rookie first-rounder Eric Stokes.... See More ... See Less
