NFL Practice Squad Updates: 9/19/20

Recent practice squad notes from around the league:

Buffalo Bills

Carolina Panthers

  • Signed: WR Hakeem Butler
  • Released: S T.J. Green, T Aaron Monteiro

Chicago Bears

Cleveland Browns

Jacksonville Jaguars

Las Vegas Raiders

Los Angeles Chargers

Miami Dolphins

New Orleans Saints

Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Signed: OL Brandon Walton

Of course, the big news here surrounds Callaway. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (via Twitter) that the wideout has earned an additional four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. This means he’ll be eligible to return to the field in Week 8.

Callaway will continue to sit on the Dolphins’ practice squad suspended list, per Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk.com. The 23-year-old will still be allowed to attend meetings, but he can’t practice with the squad until his suspension ends.

The talented wideout out of Florida fell to the Browns in the fourth round of the 2018 draft thanks in part to a 2016 four-game suspension from former head coach Jim McElwain. Callaway immediately contributed in Cleveland, hauling in 43 receptions for 586 and five scores during his rookie campaign. However, the receiver was suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season after violating the substance-abuse policy, and he underwhelmed in the four games following his return (eight receptions, 89 yards).

He was slapped with a 10-game ban late last year, and the suspension was supposed to last through the third week of the 2020 season. Thanks to the latest suspension, Callaway won’t see the field through the first seven weeks of the season.

    Panthers add a BUTLER. He will be a handy addition to have around the locker room !!
    Bears add BOND, Devante BOND! The LB has a tendency to be shaken when stirred.
    New TE finds his way to Cleveland. To help out Kyle dropped breadcrumbs to MARKWAY !!
    LA Chargers court the favor of GOD for 2020 by bringing POPE on board!!

    Since the post has been amended, here’s what you missed:
    The Panthers will not miss their recently released Safety, he was very GREEN anyway !!
    The Team Physician of the Jaguars was very disappointed at the release of DB Josh. the Doc will have to work that much harder now that the team’s NURSE is gone !!
    The Saints released DB Grant; how will they ever be able to cover HALEY Marys without him ??
    A member of the Las Vegas Raiders Practice Squad has completely disappeared without a trace. Oddly enough, now on Practice Squad IR is WR Marcell ATEMAN with a bad case of indigestion. Coincidence ??
