  • Marcus Gilchrist: Let go by Jags

    The Jaguars waived Gilchrist on Wednesday.

    Gilchrist signed with Jacksonville on Nov. 26, and he's played in a rotational safety role, recording two solo tackles over three games. The Jags promoted safety Doug Middleton from the practice squad to take Gilchrist's place. If Gilchrist clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with another team.

  • Jaguars' Marcus Gilchrist: Brought in by Jacksonville

    Gilchrist signed with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

    Gilchrist signed with the Lions in October but was cut before playing in a game. The 2011 second-rounder was a starter with the Raiders last season, averaging 51 defensive snaps per game and compiling 58 tackles, six pass breakups and three interceptions. Gilchrist has a shot to climb the depth chart, and he could be immediately deployed Week 13 against the Buccaneers since Ronnie Harrison's (concussion) status is uncertain.

  • Marcus Gilchrist: Quick exit from Detroit

    The Lions cut Gilchrist on Saturday.

    Gilchrist just signed with the Lions on Thursday, and he's already been shown the door. He was a solid secondary piece for the Raiders last year, recording 58 tackles, six pass breakups and three interceptions, but he still hasn't suited up for an NFL game this year.

  • Lions' Marcus Gilchrist: Catches on with Lions

    Gilchrist signed with the Lions on Thursday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Lions dealt safety Quandre Diggs to the Seahawks this week, leaving a need for depth in an already banged-up secondary. In steps Gilchrist, who logged 58 combined tackles and three interceptions across 16 games with Oakland in 2018. The eight-year veteran is immediately a candidate to see snaps in the secondary.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Limited to 15 snaps in finale

    Gilchrist accrued two tackles (one solo) during Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Chiefs.

    Gilchrist logged just 15 defensive snaps after dealing with a calf injury late in the week, but he still finishes the 2018 season tied for the Raiders' team lead in interceptions with three picks in 16 games. He also amassed 58 tackles (40 solo) and six passes defensed while starting at free safety next to Karl Joseph. The 30-year-old Gilchrist is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2019, but Oakland could attempt to re-sign him with fellow veteran Reggie Nelson (shoulder) likely on his way out.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Good to go Sunday

    Gilchrist (calf) is active for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

    Gilchrist was a late addition to the injury report Saturday but is still able to play in Sunday's season finale. The 30-year-old should finish the season having started all 16 games at safety for the Raiders.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Added to injury report

    Gilchrist (calf) has been added to the injury report and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports..

    It's not clear when Gilchrist suffered the injury, but the safety is evidently questionable for the last game of the season, one week after recording his first interception of the 2018 season. The lack of turnovers has made Gilchrist an unreliable option in IDP leagues, and the same could be said for Dallin Leavitt or Erik Harris if they were forced to start in his place.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Notches key interception

    Gilchrist tallied six tackles and his first interception of the season Monday in the Raiders' 27-14 win over the Broncos.

    After whittling the Oakland lead down to 10 points early in the fourth quarter and then forcing a punt, the Broncos had established some momentum, but Gilchrist disrupted that when he picked off Case Keenum with 5:36 remaining. The interception put Oakland in field-goal position, allowing the Raiders to effectively salt the game away. Though this was Gilchrist's best fantasy performance of the season, his lack of consistently big tackle totals caps his weekly upside in IDP settings.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Not on injury report

    Gilchrist (undisclosed) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Gilchrist exited Monday night's contest after a collision with Rams running back Todd Gurley. His absence from the injury report suggests he's in no danger of missing out on Sunday's Week 2 affair against the Broncos.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Injured in loss

    Gilchrist suffered an undisclosed injury in Monday's loss to the Rams, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Gilchrist drew the start at Oakland's free safety position, but exited the game after a collision with running back Todd Gurley. Expect an update on Gilchrist's injury if he is unable to practice fully to begin Week 2 of the regular season.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Expected back at practice

    Gilchrist (foot) is expected to return to practice Monday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Gilchrist has been sidelined for two weeks now with a foot injury that was originally believed to be minor. The defensive back appears set to finally make his return to the practice field Monday, and with that, he should be in line to play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Sidelined with foot injury

    Gilchrist did not participate in Monday's practice due to a foot injury, but head coach Jon Gruden is hopeful he can return Tuesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Gilchrist already was sidelined for the Raiders' minicamp back in June, and the injury bug has hit him yet again. However, with Gruden hoping the free safety can make a return to practice as soon as Tuesday, it doesn't appear that the injury is too serious. For now, Gilchrist should be considered day-to-day.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Misses minicamp with calf injury

    Gilchrist missed the Raiders' mandatory minicamp this month due to a strained calf, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The severity of Gilchrist's injury isn't clear, and it's possible the veteran safety was held out of minicamp as a precaution. An update on his health should become available once training camp opens in late July.

  • Raiders' Marcus Gilchrist: Signs with Raiders

    Gilchrist signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Gilchrist is coming off of a 56-tackle season with the Texans in which he added one interception as well. He'll likely be a backup to Karl Joseph and Shalom Luani in 2018.

  • Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Quiet in victory

    Gilchrist logged just two solo tackles in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

    It was Gilchrist's second consecutive week with just two tackles. He has failed to record more than four since tallying a season-high nine (seven solo) in Week 5. The 28-year-old logged 50 snaps (86.0 percent) in the contest.

  • Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Ties team high in tackles

    Gilchrist tied a team high with nine tackles (seven solo) in Week 5's loss to the Chiefs.

    Gilchrist was on the field for all 77 defensive snaps in the game, one of three Texans players to do so. He will presumably continue to see healthy numbers with his heavy workload. The 28-year-old will have an advantageous matchup against the Browns on Sunday.

  • Texans' Marcus Gilchrist: Finds new home

    The Texans signed Gilchrist to a one-year contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After losing Quintin Demps to the Bears in free agency, the Texans have been in the market for additional help at strong safety. The wait was long, but after Gilchrist was cleared by doctors last week from last year's season-ending knee injury, it was only a matter of time before he found a landing spot. Granted, signing Gilchrist, a long-time free safety, doesn't exactly shore up the hole with the Texans' 2016 starter at the position, Andre Hal, still in the fold. Having said that, Gilchrist should have an opportunity to surpass 55 tackles for the sixth consecutive campaign.

  • Marcus Gilchrist: Cleared to return to field

    Gilchrist (knee) has been cleared by doctors to return to the field, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

    Gilchrist started 13 games for the Jets last year before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He was released by the team in May after passing a physical, as they had acquired multiple safety options. The 28-year-old should not have a hard time finding a new team, and has already begun scheduling visits for next week.
