Troymaine Pope: Released from IR
The Buccaneers released Pope (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.
It's unclear what is ailing Pope, but when he is healthy, he will be eligible to join a new team for the 2021 campaign. The 27-year-old has amassed 37 carries for 140 rushing yards since joining the NFL in 2016.... See More ... See Less
Buccaneers' Troymaine Pope: Placed on injured reserve
Pope (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Pope played 35 percent of the Buccaneers' offensive snaps in the preseason opener but didn't appear in Saturday's exhibition loss to the Titans. While the nature of the 27-year-old's injury isn't clear, he'll be forced to miss the 2021 campaign following his placement on injured reserve unless he works out an injury settlement with the team....

Troymaine Pope: Waived with injury designation
Pope (undisclosed) was waived by Tampa Bay with an injury designation Sunday.

Buccaneers' Troymaine Pope: Signing with Tampa
Pope's signing a contract with the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Tampa Bay liked what it saw from Pope in rookie minicamp and will reward him with a contract. The 27-year-old Pope has 140 career rushing yards on 37 carries.... See More ... See Less
Troymaine Pope: Rejoins Chargers' practice squad
Pope was signed to the Chargers' practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Chargers have routinely used their weekly practice squad call-ups to rotate their running back depth chart, so it makes sense Pope would return to the team's practice squad. The health of Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage have relegated Pope to obscurity, but the shifty back did see action in five games so far this season and has totaled 118 yards across 23 touches....

Troymaine Pope: Let go by Chargers
The Chargers waived Pope on Thursday.
Pope saw action in five games this season with the Chargers, rushing the ball 15 times for 76 yards, and he added eight receptions for 42 yards. Pope was fazed out of the game plan the past two weeks with Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson returning from injured reserve, so this news isn't surprising. Pope could end up back on the practice squad with the Chargers or elsewhere before the season concludes.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Clear of neck injury
Pope (neck) was a full practice participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report.
The 27-year-old sat out Week 14 with the neck injury and was estimated as a DNP on Monday's practice report. Pope is unlikely to have much of an offensive role down the stretch for the Chargers with Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson back from injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Sitting out Week 14
Pope (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
The 27-year-old was considered questionable with the neck issue and won't be suiting up Sunday. Justin Jackson (knee) returned from injured reserve Saturday, so Pope may have ended up inactive even if he was healthy.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Listed as questionable
Pope (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.
Pope didn't practice Thursday but was able to get on the field in a limited capacity for Friday's session, thus providing a chance to play this week. With Joshua Kelley (knee) available along with Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage, Pope's in danger of being a healthy scratch even if he is cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Held back during practice
Pope (neck) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Pope has a chance to return to the field for this week's game against the Falcons. If he can shake off the injury, a heightened role could be in the works because Joshua Kelley (foot) began the week as a nonparticipant in practice. That wouldn't be a major boost, however, as Pope played just six snaps on offense in the only game he has played with Austin Ekeler in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Downgraded in practice
Pope (neck) did not participate during the Chargers' practice session Thursday.
The 27-year-old back was unavailable for Los Angeles' 45-0 blanking at the hands of the Patriots, and he's moving in the wrong direction for Week 14. Pope was able to contribute a limited session Wednesday, rendering his Thursday DNP as a clear step back. The Chargers at least had Joshua Kelley (foot) upgrading his practice status from non-participant to limited Thursday, but Pope's outlook remains murky as L.A. heads into its final session of the week....

Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Sitting out Sunday
Pope (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
The 27-year-old was considered questionable with the neck injury but won't be suiting up Sunday. Pope was unlikely to fill a significant offensive role even if active, since Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage (ankle) are both available.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Draws questionable tag for Sunday
Pope (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.
Pope was a late addition to the injury report Saturday after showing no signs of an issue during the practice week. The final verdict on his status may not be available until the inactives list is revealed about 90 minutes before the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. His role on the offense has been essentially eliminated with Austin Ekeler back from IR and Joshua Kelley slotting in as the No. 2, so his potential absence would mainly hurt the backfield depth....

Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Solo reception in loss
Pope caught his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills. He also rushed once and lost one yard.
With the return of Austin Ekeler (hamstring/knee), Pope only played six of the offensive snaps compared to Joshua Kelley's 19 snaps. While it is unclear whether Kelley or Kalen Ballage (ankle) will continue as Ekeler's backup, Pope almost certainly won't factor into the equation.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Two receptions in win
Pope rushed three times for four yards and caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 34-28 win against the Jets.
After an underwhelming performance against Miami last week, Pope marginally improved his numbers in the air and on the ground during this matchup. The running back also played more offensive snaps (16) than Joshua Kelley (11), but fell far behind Kalen Ballage (55). Pope might completely fall to the wayside if Austin Ekeler (hamstring/knee) returns to the fold as expected next week against the Bills.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Troymaine Pope: Zero snaps
Pope was active in Sunday's 29-21 loss to Miami and did not play any of the offensive snaps.
Pope returned after recovering from a neck injury, but he still did not see a single offensive snap. Even with Austin Ekeler (hamstring) and Justin Jackson (knee) placed on IR, and Joshua Kelley's unimpressive performance, Pope was still not used in the Chargers offense. It is clear that the running back will not be a fantasy asset, and managers should focus on utilizing the practice-squad callup Kalen Ballage while he continues to operate as the primary rushing attack....
