  • Troy Apke: Waived by Washington

    Apke (shoulder) was waived from Washington's injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Apke landed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury back in August and will now head to waivers. The 2018 fourth-round pick will continue focusing on getting healthy and look for another opportunity elsewhere.

  • Commanders' Troy Apke: Lands on IR

    Apke (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Apke's injury details are unclear, although it was previously reported by Ben Standig of The Athletic that a full recovery may require surgery. The 28-year-old has served a depth role in the team's secondary for each of the past five seasons, but he'll now have to spend the 2023 campaign sidelined unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team and can return to full health.

  • Commanders' Troy Apke: May need surgery

    Apke may need shoulder surgery, which could put his 2023 season in jeopardy, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Apke has been having a solid training camp, which makes the decision on whether or not to have surgery a difficult one. He currently projects as a depth safety option for the team in the upcoming season.

  • Commanders' Troy Apke: Inks one-year deal

    Apke signed a one-year contract with the Commanders on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Apke played exclusively on special teams last year and logged six tackles (five solo) while appearing in all 17 games. He'll remain in Washington for a fifth straight year, but he'll have to compete for playing time once again ahead of the 2022 campaign after his decrease in production last season.

  • Football Team's Troy Apke: Clears COVID protocols

    Apke was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Apke was able to clear COVID protocols within five days and will return to provide depth in the secondary, although he mostly contributes on special teams. With Kendall Fuller still on the COVID list and out for Week 15, it's possible Apke could see extra work Tuesday against the Eagles.

  • Football Team's Troy Apke: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Washington placed Apke on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Apke has appeared in 13 games this season, but he's yet to handle a single defensive snap. Field Yates of ESPN reports that only one of the 31 players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday was an unvaccinated high-risk close contact (Giants safety Xavier McKinney) meaning Apke tested positive for the virus.

  • Football Team's Troy Apke: Benched after midseason

    Apke started seven of 16 games during the 2020 season, recording 35 tackles (25 solo) and two pass defenses.

    Apke was a starter for Weeks 1-5 and 11-12, averaging 59 defensive snaps and 4.3 tackles in those games. Apart from those seven starts, he played just 28 defensive snaps, primarily focusing on special teams while rookie seventh-round pick Kamren Curl emerged as a reliable starter on defense. Given that Landon Collins (Achilles), Deshazor Everett (pectoral) and Jeremy Reaves also made starts at safety, Apke could be on the roster bubble heading into 2021, the final season of his rookie contract. To this point in his career, the 2018 fourth-round pick hasn't shown coverage skills to match his 4.34 speed.

  • Football Team's Troy Apke: Set to start Sunday

    Apke will start at free safety Sunday against the Bengals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Deshazor Everett (ankle) is unavailable Sunday, so Apke will receive the start in his place. The 25-year-old started the first five games of the season and totaled 24 tackles (18 solo) and two passes defensed.

  • Football Team's Troy Apke: Bumps to reserve role

    Apke will serve as a backup to Deshazor Everett during Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Apke was replaced by Everett during the Week 5 loss to the Rams, and he'll remain in a reserve role while Everett takes over at free safety. Apke was a decent IDP contributor before, but his fantasy value is negligible unless he takes over as a starter again.
