  • Commanders' David Mayo: Primarily playing special teams

    Mayo registered 34 tackles (14 solo), including one sack, while playing in 13 games (three starts) during the 2022 season.

    Mayo saw the majority of his playing time this season on special teams, but he still started Washington's final three games as Cole Holcomb (foot) and Jon Bostic (pectoral) were both out with injuries. The eighth-year pro was effective in his limited playing time, as he amassed 25 tackles and a sack during that three-game span. With his contract set to expire this offseason, Mayo will provide value on special teams and as a reserve linebacker to whichever team he ends up in 2023.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Notches first sack in loss

    Mayo recorded eight tackles (five solo), including one sack, in Sunday's 24-10 loss to Cleveland.

    Mayo recorded his first sack of the season, bringing down Washington signal-caller Deshaun Watson for a one-yard loss in the first quarter. The 29-year-old has now recorded 17 tackles since stepping up for injured linebacker Jon Bostic (pectoral) over the past two weeks. Mayo has also played at least 88 percent of defensive snaps in each of the past two games, and he should continue to slot into a prominent role alongside leading tackler Jamin Davis in Week 18 versus the Cowboys.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Steps up with team-high nine stops

    Mayo recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Saturday's 37-20 loss to the 49ers.

    With both fellow linebackers Cole Holcomb (foot ) and Drew White (knee) unavailable, along with Jon Bostic having departed this past weekend's contest due to a pectoral injury, Mayo slid into Washington's primary defensive rotation and logged season highs in snaps (45) and stops (9). The 29-year-old could find himself in a similar role on New Year's Day should Bostic eventually fail to gain medical clearance for the Week 17 matchup against Cleveland.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Gets upgraded

    Mayo (hamstring) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report.

    Mayo hasn't played since Week 8 against the Colts due to the injury, but it appears he'll finally return Sunday against Atlanta. The expected availability of the veteran starting linebacker should be good news for the Commanders' defense when it faces the Falcons for Week 12.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Missing third straight game

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Won't be active Monday night

    Mayo (hamstring) is listed as out for Monday's game at Philadelphia, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Mayo will miss his second consecutive game as he recovers from a hamstring injury. With Cole Holcomb (foot) also out for Week 10, the Commanders will have to lean on Jon Bostic and first-round sophomore Jamin Davis to try to stop the Eagles' run-heavy attack.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Won't play versus Minnesota

    Mayo (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

    Mayo will miss Week 9 with a hamstring injury after playing a season-high 19 defensive snaps Week 8 at Indianapolis. With Cole Holcomb (foot) also ruled out, veteran Jon Bostic could be in line for extended reps alongside Jamin Davis on Sunday.

  • Commanders' David Mayo: Set to be active Thursday night

    Mayo (hamstring) is slated to be active for Thursday's game against the Bears, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

    Mayo was sidelined for Sunday's loss to the Titans after being limited with a hamstring injury leading up to this contest. However, the 29-year-old will be ready to suit up again against Chicago's run-heavy offensive approach. Mayo recorded all three of his tackles this season while playing 25 of his 26 snaps on special teams in Week 3.
