  • Asante Cleveland: Not retained by Chargers

    Cleveland didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Chargers and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

    Cleveland spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury. However, he recently met with the Patriots this offseason, according to Zack Cox of the New England Sports Network, and there hasn't been any indication said injury is still a concern.

  • Asante Cleveland: Waived with injury designation

    Cleveland (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Chargers on Monday.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Signs exclusive rights tender

    Cleveland officially signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Cleveland will once again act as depth at the tight end spot for the Chargers, who already boast a formidable group of receiving options, including Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates. With Sean McGrath likely ahead of Cleveland on the depth chart as well, it'll take plenty of injuries to guys above him for the soon-to-be 25-year-old to gain fantasy relevance.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Inactive for Week 16 versus Browns

    Cleveland (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's Week 16 tilt versus the Browns, the team's official site reports.

    The reserve tight end unsurprisingly will be in street clothes once again, as Antonio Gates, Hunter Henry, and Sean McGrath will handle the reps at the position.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Inactive for Week 14

    Cleveland (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

    Cleveland passed through the NFL's concussion protocol and was deemed available to play, but since he's buried on the depth chart at tight end, coach Mike McCoy chose not to keep him active. The 24-year-old has appeared in only four games this season and hasn't seen any targets.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Removed from injury report

    Cleveland (concussion) does not appear on the Chargers' injury report to commence Week 14.

    Cleveland missed each of the past two games with a concussion, but appears to have cleared protocol. Thus, he could be back in action during Sunday's game in Carolina.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Inactive for Week 13

    Cleveland (concussion) is inactive for Week 13.

    Cleveland was a full participant in practice all week, so his inactive designation for Sunday's game suggests that he may have failed some portion of the league's concussion protocol. The Chargers offense shouldn't be affected by Cleveland's absence, however, as he is fourth on the tight end depth chart.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Questionable to play

    Cleveland (concussion) is questionable to play Sunday against Tampa Bay.

    Considering Cleveland was a full participant in every practice this week, he doesn't appear in any actual danger of missing Sunday's game.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Ruled out of Sunday's game

    Cleveland (concussion) is ruled out of Sunday's game against the Texans.

    Cleveland sustained a concussion last Sunday and went on to miss every practice this week. Considering he rests at the very bottom of the depth chart, his absence likely won't have much of an impact on the outcome of the game.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: No practice Wednesday

    Cleveland (concussion/knee) did not practice Wednesday.

    It appears Cleveland is nursing a pair of injures of unknown severity. His participation throughout the rest of the week will presumably help shed light on his potential availability for Sunday's game against the Texans.

  • Chargers' Asante Cleveland: Signed to active roster

    Cleveland was signed to the Chargers' active roster on Saturday.

    With starting tight end Antonio Gates considered doubtful to play on Sunday, the Chargers evidently felt they needed more help at the tight end position, cutting RB Andre Williams to make room. If Gates is ultimately ruled out, Cleveland will slot in behind Hunter Henry and Sean McGrath on the tight end depth chart.

  • Asante Cleveland: Could be promoted from practice squad

    Cleveland could be promoted from the practice squad if Antonio Gates (hamstring) is unable to play Sunday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diegio-Union Tribune reports.

    Cleveland, who was claimed off waivers last December from the Patriots, will slot behind Hunter Henry and Sean McGrath on the depth chart should he come off the practice squad. The 24-year-old likely won't make much of a fantasy impact unless multiple injuries tax the Chargers' depth at tight end.
