Commanders' Cole Turner: Making case for Year 2 role
Turner "wowed" during training camp last year and is doing the same in practices this spring, Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
Zach Selby of the Commanders' official website also mentions Turner as one of the standouts from OTAs in May. The 2022 fifth-round pick caught only two passes in 10 games as a rookie last year -- both during a Week 6 contest where injuries forced him into an every-down role -- but it isn't out of the question that Turner could displace soon-to-be 32-year-old Logan Thomas as Washington's top TE this summer. Thomas suffered an Achilles tear in 2021 and averaged only 8.3 yards per catch and 5.3 yards per target in 14 games last season (39-323-1 on 61 targets).... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Finishes year with two catches
Turner finished the 2022 season with two catches for 23 yards in 10 games.
The rookie fifth-round pick out of Nevada took 51 percent of Washington's offensive snaps Week 5 (his NFL debut) and 93 percent Week 6. Both of Turner's receptions came in the latter contest, and while he made eight appearances thereafter and saw four more targets, he didn't catch another pass once the Commanders got John Bates and then Logan Thomas back from injuries. Turner turns 23 in March and could be in the mix for the passing-down role next year, especially if Thomas is released this offseason (which would add up to $6.9 million in cap space for Washington, per OverTheCap)....

Commanders' Cole Turner: Picks up one target in Week 13
Turner played 20 of the Commanders' 60 snaps on offense and failed to haul in his lone target in Washington's 19-13 win over Atlanta on Sunday.
With Armani Rogers (knee) moving to injured reserve Nov. 19, Turner has been able to dress as the Commanders' No. 3 tight end for both of the team's last two games. He's picked up a target in both contests, but he's unlikely to see his role expand much in the stretch run of the season while both Logan Thomas and John Bates are available.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Healthy scratch again
Turner (coach's decision) has been ruled inactive for Monday's game against the Eagles.
Turner will be a healthy scratch for the second week in a row after falling out of the Commanders' crowded corps of tight ends. His next chance to play will come Sunday against the Texans.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Healthy scratch Sunday
Turner (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Vikings.
Turner was in concussion protocols earlier in the week, but he had gained clearance to play. However, with Logan Thomas' return last Sunday against the Colts, Turner finds himself on the outside looking in, on the team's positional depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Clears concussion protocol
Turner (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.
Turner has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol and will see game action for the first time since suffering the concussion in Week 7 against the Packers. Washington has battled injuries at tight end, but with the team's top options at the position having regained health, Turner will likely be used primarily on special teams while playing sparingly, if at all, on offense....

Commanders' Cole Turner: Practices in full Thursday
Turner (concussion) was listed as a full participant on the Commanders' injury report Thursday.
Turner returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, marking his first activity since suffering a concussion against the Packers in Week 7. While he appears to be rapidly progressing toward a return, the rookie tight end will still need to officially clear the league protocol in order to suit up for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Turner will have one more practice to improve his status before this Week 9 contest.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Limited Wednesday
Turner (concussion) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Turner suffered a concussion during the team's Week 7 win over the Packers and was unable to practice before being ruled out for Week 8. It's an encouraging sign to see the tight end back practicing, albeit in a limited fashion, but he'll likely have to log at least one full session before returning to game action.... See More ...

Commanders' Cole Turner: Sits out practice Thursday
Turner (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday.
Turner sustained a concussion in Sunday's win over the Packers and missed his second practice in a row Thursday. As a result, the rookie tight end appears unlikely to suit up heading into the Commanders' Week 8 contest against the Colts. Turner has caught two of his seven passes for 23 yards over three games this season, and his absence could lead to increased targets for Armani Rogers and John Bates if top tight end Logan Thomas (calf) remains out Sunday against Indianapolis....

Commanders' Cole Turner: Ruled out for Week 8
Turner (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Colts, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Turner suffered the concussion against the Packers in Week 7 and was unable to practice during Week 8 prep, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out. Starting tight end Logan Thomas (calf) is listed as questionable and could potentially return from a three-game absence, but if Thomas remains sidelined, Armani Rogers and John Bates would be in line for increased roles once again....

Commanders' Cole Turner: Doesn't practice Wednesday
Turner (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Turner suffered a concussion during the Commanders' Week 7 win over the Packers, so it's not surprising to see him sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He'll have two more days to clear protocols before Washington needs to make a decision on the tight end's status for Week 8, but Turner doesn't appear to be trending in the right direction....

Commanders' Cole Turner: Ruled out with concussion
Turner won't return to Sunday's game versus Green Bay after suffering a concussion, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Turner had to be escorted to the locker room after hitting his head on the field while trying to make a catch late in the second quarter. Washington entered the contest already down starting tight end Logan Thomas (calf), so John Bates and Armani Rogers should handle the position for the rest of the game.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Handles three-down role
Turner caught both of his targets for 23 yards in a 12-7 win over the Bears on Thursday, playing 93 percent of snaps on offense with fellow tight ends Logan Thomas (calf) and John Bates (hamstring) both unavailable.
Thomas was on the inactive list for a second straight week, while Bates didn't log any playing time due to a hamstring injury suffered during pregame warmups. Turner thus found himself in a three-down role, after seeing 51 percent of snaps and three targets (zero catches) the week before in a timeshare with Bates. Turner, a rookie fifth-round pick, could have some deep-league appeal for Week 7 against the Packers if both Thomas and Bates are sidelined again. His prospects for fantasy production will be minimal if either of those two returns.... See More ... See Less
Commanders' Cole Turner: Inactive against Lions
Turner (coach's decision) is inactive Week 2 against the Lions.
While Turner made it off the injury report this week, the rookie tight end will ultimately have to wait at least another week before making his NFL debut. Washington will still have three tight ends active, with the position group consisting of Logan Thomas, John Bates and Armani Rogers.... See More ... See Less
