  • Lions' Christian Covington: Kicked to curb

    Covington was released by Detroit on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The 29-year-old signed with the Lions on May 10 and had a sack during Friday's preseason game against Carolina before being released. Covington also had stints with Houston, Dallas, Cincinnati and Los Angeles throughout his career. The veteran defensive lineman appeared in 102 games over eight years, recording 196 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He'll look for another team ahead of the coming season.

  • Lions' Christian Covington: Recovered from pectoral injury

    Covington is participating in OTAs after recovering from a pectoral injury, Colton Pouncy of The Athletic reports.

    Covington played in four games with the Chargers last season before winding up on injured reserve but is now back in action for OTAs in Detroit. The 29-year-old registered 12 tackles (three solo) during the 2022 campaign and will now compete for a depth role throughout the summer.

  • Lions' Christian Covington: Signs with Detroit

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: Lands on IR

    Covington (pectoral) was placed on the Chargers' injured reserve Wednesday.

    Covington is expected to miss significant time after he suffered a torn pectoral during the Chargers' Week 10 loss to the 49ers. While the exact severity of this tear is still unclear, he'll be forced to sit out at least four weeks while recovering on IR, leaving Week 15 against Tennessee as his earliest possible date to return. With fellow defensive lineman Otito Ogbonnia also set to miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured patellar tendon, the Bolts signed Tyeler Davison off the Browns' practice squad Monday to provide depth behind likely starting nose tackle Breiden Fehoko for the time being.

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: Could be done for season

    Chargers coach Brandon Staley said that Covington suffered a torn pectoral during Sunday's loss to the 49ers and could miss the remainder of the season, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Covington is likely to miss at least 4-for-6 weeks given the usual recovery timeline for low-grade pectoral tears, so he'll likely land on the Bolts' IR sometime before this Sunday's game against Kansas City. However, this recovery could take 3-to-4 months if the injury is ultimately ruled as a high-grade tear, which would sideline the 29-year-old for the remainder of the 2022 campaign. With defensive lineman Otito Ogbonnia also slated to be out for the rest of the season after rupturing his patellar tendon Sunday, third-year nose tackle Breiden Fehoko should be in line for a significantly increased role moving forward.

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: Hurts pectoral on SNF

    Covington suffered a pectoral injury in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the 49ers.

    Covington was deemed questionable to return after getting hurt but never made his way back into the game. With fellow interior defensive lineman Otito Ogbonnia (knee) exiting earlier, the Chargers were thin inside down the stretch, which made it that much more difficult to slow down San Francisco's potent running game.

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: Signed off practice squad

    The Chargers signed Covington to the team's active roster Monday.

    Covington played a significant role on the Chargers' defensive line last season, recording 52 tackles and one sack over 16 games. The 28-year-old should now slot in as the team's backup nose tackle behind Austin Johnson, who joined the Bolts on a two-year, $14 million deal in March.

  • Christian Covington: Released by LAC

    The Chargers released Covington on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Covington appeared in 16 games for the Chargers last year, totaling a career-high 52 tackles. However, the veteran defensive tackle finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The 2015 sixth-round pick has played over 400 defensive snaps in three straight seasons with three different teams and figures to garner plenty of attention as a free agent.

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: Tests positive for COVID-19

  • Chargers' Christian Covington: First sack as Bolt

    Covington recorded three tackles and a sack in Monday's 28-14 win against the Raiders.

    An early offseason signing by the Chargers, Covington has seamlessly filled in as an interior tackle, averaging close to 55 percent of the defensive playing time through four weeks. Don't expect sacks to come too often for Covington, however, given Monday's was his first since 2019.
