  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Expected to be cut

    Miami is expected to release Ogbah on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Ogbah had spent the last four years of his career with the Dolphins, but it now seems as if that time is coming to an end. This move comes as no surprise, as Miami can save close to $14 million in cap space by cutting ties with Ogbah. The veteran edge rusher started in just one of the 15 games he appeared in during Miami's 2023 campaign, logging 19 total tackles, including five sacks and an additional three tackles for loss.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Won't play at Baltimore

    Ogbah (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Baltimore. Ogbah will be sidelined for his second consecutive game in Week 17, though this time he appears to be a healthy scratch. In his stead, Da'Shawn Hand will likely see an uptick in reps against the Ravens.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Appears back to full health

    Ogbah is not listed on Miami's injury report Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Ogbah injured his hamstring against the Jets in Week 15 and didn't play this past Sunday versus Dallas. However, his name is off the injury report for the start of Week 17 prep, suggesting that he'll be able to return to action Sunday in Baltimore. Ogbah has played a rotational role for the Dolphins this season, tallying 15 tackles (six solo), including 5.0 sacks, along with an interception over 14 contests.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Questionable for Sunday

    Ogbah (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports. The 30-year-old linebacker exited the Dolphins' Week 15 win over the Jets with a hamstring issue, but he was still able to record a week of limited practice sessions. If Ogbah is unable to suit up in Week 16, Cameron Goode could see more work as a rotational outside linebacker.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Leaves game with hamstring injury

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Would have played moving forward

    Ogbah (triceps) was expected to be cleared to play if the Dolphins advanced in the postseason, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. As the Dolphins players cleared out their lockers Monday, Ogbah said that the plan was for him to return from his triceps injury in the AFC divisional round if the the team had beaten Buffalo on Sunday. It appears as if the defensive end should have no issue being ready to go for the start of training camp this summer. Ogbah appeared in nine games in 2022, recording 11 tackles, including one sack.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Will not return

    Ogbah (elbow) will not return Sunday against the Browns. Ogbah left the game in the first half, but he was not originally ruled out. In his absence, Zach Sieler will likely provide depth behind the starters on the edge, Raekwon Davis and Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Suiting up in Detroit

    Ogbah (back) is active Week 8 against the Lions. The Dolphins only have five active defensive linemen for their 3-4 scheme, suggesting Ogbah wasn't in much danger of missing this practice despite a questionable tag. The veteran hasn't recorded a sack since Week 1, however, which would put him on pace for a career low in that department.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Game-time decision Sunday

    Ogbah (back) will be a game-time decision to play Sunday versus the Steelers, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Ogbah suffered a back injury in Week 6 against the Vikings and is questionable to play on Sunday Night Football this week. If he can't go, Zach Sieler (hand) could get some extra run, but the Dolphins may have to elevate an extra body from their practice unit.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Questionable to return

    Ogbah (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings. Ogbah temporarily went to the Dolphins' locker room before returning to the team's sideline, according to Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald. With the 28-year-old out for the time being, expect Zach Sieler to see increased usage opposite Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Secures payday from Dolphins

    Ogbah and Miami have agreed to terms on a four-year, $65 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Ogbah has solidified himself as one of Miami's defensive cornerstones, having served as the team's sack leader in back-to-back seasons. Retaining the 28-year-old defensive end is a notable boost for the Dolphins' defensive prospects in the 2022 campaign, and for the foreseeable future. For Ogbah's part, he now secures the largest contract of his career, which includes $32 million guaranteed.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Brings down Wentz in loss

    Ogbah notched four tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Colts. Ogbah has 1.5 sacks through the first four weeks of the season, so he'll need to ramp up his pace for any chance of matching last season's nine-sack total. It will be difficult to rely on Ogbah for fantasy purposes Week 5, as the Buccaneers' offensive front should have a clear advantage over Miami's pass rush.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Modest production vs. Bills

    Ogbah notched four tackles (one solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills. Ogbah has just seven total tackles, one pass breakup and a half-sack through the first two weeks of the 2021 campaign. The 27-year-old has never been a reliable weekly starter in IDP fantasy formats, but given that he had a career-high nine sacks last season, it's somewhat disappointing to see him get off to a slow start this year. Ogbah will look to get right in Week 3 versus a Raiders squad that could have Nathan Peterman under center if Derek Carr (ankle) can't go.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Manages nine sacks

    Ogbah had 43 tackles (26 solo), nine sacks, five defended passes and three forced fumbles across 16 games in 2020. Ogbah notched a new career-high in terms of snaps during his inaugural season with the Dolphins, providing exactly the sort of pressure off the edge that the team hoped for when he was signed to a two-year, $15 million contract last March. Though Ogbah's deal includes a potential out this offseason, Miami could certainly opt to keep him in house for 2021 given the quality of his play in 2020.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Brings down Wilson in loss

    Ogbah had five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Seahawks. Ogbah had logged back-to-back games with a half-sack prior to Sunday's contest, bringing his total for the season to two sacks through four games. He'll look to keep up his momentum against a San Francisco squad that could get Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) back in the lineup Week 5.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Cleared from injury

    Ogbah (pectoral) said Thursday that he's been cleared to resume workouts, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Ogbah missed the final six games of the 2019 regular season with Kansas City due to a torn pectoral injury he suffered Week 10. The 26-year-old has been a consistent threat in the pass rush since coming into the league in 2016, earning 18 sacks over 50 career games. Now healthy, he's one of a few offseason additions for the Dolphins in a defensive overhaul heading into 2020.

  • Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Waiting for MRI confirmation

    The Chiefs are waiting for the MRI results to confirm Ogbah tore his right pectoral muscle, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. If this injury is confirmed, Ogbah will be ruled out for the season. Houston's J.J. Watt suffered the same injury two weeks ago and is expected to be ready for the 2020 season, so the Chiefs hope Ogbah can receive a similar prognosis. Frank Clark, Tanoh Kpassagnon and Alex Okafor (ankle) are the team's remaining defensive ends. Ogbah tied his career high with 5.5 sacks through 10 games.

  • Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Notches sack in Chiefs debut

    Ogbah recorded three tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's 40-26 win over the Jaguars. Ogbah was effective in Sunday's season opener, serving as a rotational pass rusher and complement to Alex Okafor and Frank Clark. The 25-year-old should be locked into a similar role going forward, making him a sack-dependent fantasy option in most IDP formats.

  • Chiefs' Emmanuel Ogbah: Returns to action

    Ogbah (oblique) is participating at Monday's practice, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports. Ogbah left Sunday's practice early due to the oblique injury, but his quick return to the practice field indicates it was a minor issue. The 25-year-old should be available for Saturday's preseason opener against the Bengals, assuming he avoids a setback.
