Michael Bandy: Returns to Denver
Bandy signed with the Broncos' practice squad Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Bandy was cut from the team's practice squad Sept. 1, but with the addition of Lil'Jordan Humphrey to the team's 53-man roster, a spot reopened for the former. The San Diego product played in 10 games for the Chargers last season, recording 10 catches on 21 targets for 89 yards.... See More ... See Less
Michael Bandy: Let go by Denver
Bandy was released from the Broncos' practice squad Friday, per Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post.
Bandy was let go in order to make room for veteran linebacker Ben Niemann, who Denver signed to its practice squad Friday. The 25-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Chargers after going undrafted out of San Diego in 2021. He bounced back and forth between the team's active roster and practice squad over that time, appearing in 11 games and catching 10 passes for 89 yards.... See More ... See Less
Michael Bandy: Earns practice squad role
Bandy has been added to the Broncos' practice squad, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.
Bandy spent his first two seasons with the Chargers before looking for a fresh start in Denver. While he was unable to make it through final roster cuts, the 25-year-old receiver was able to catch a role with the team's practice unit.... See More ... See Less
Michael Bandy: Waived ahead of deadline
The Broncos waived Bandy on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Bandy joined the Broncos in late July after spending the last two seasons with the Chargers. However, he was unable to make enough of an impact in Denver to earn a 53-man roster spot. It's possible he lands on a practice squad ahead of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Bandy: Inks deal with Denver
Bandy signed with the Broncos on Friday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Bandy started last season on the Chargers' practice squad but took advantage of injuries to the wideout corps, catching 10 of 21 targets for 89 yards in 10 games. He was also on 39 special teams snaps last season and has experience as a kick returner in 2021, which could give him an edge as he competes for a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Michael Bandy: Headed for free agency
The Chargers announced Friday that they will not tender Bandy, making him an unrestricted free agent, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Bandy took advantage of Los Angeles' depleted wideout corps in 2022 and made 10 appearances, catching 10 of 21 targets for 89 yards. The undrafted product of out San Diego has experience as a kick returner too and should be able to latch on with a new team ahead of training camp.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Quiet season
Bandy caught 10 of his 21 targets for 89 yards during the 2022-23 season.
Bandy began the season on the practice squad but was later signed to the active roster due to various Chargers receivers suffering injuries. The 2021 undrafted free agent had his best game Week 9 against the Falcons, recording half of his total receptions on the season, as both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams were out with injuries. However, Bandy saw his role drastically decrease once both receivers returned to action.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Inactive for Monday Night Football
Bandy (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's matchup against the Colts.
Bandy will be a healthy scratch for a second straight week. The undrafted wideout out of San Diego has caught 10 of 21 targets for 89 yards across 10 appearances (198 offensive snaps), but it appears he's fallen out of the Chargers' wideout rotation now that Mike Williams is healthy....

Chargers' Michael Bandy: Unavailable Week 15
Bandy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Bandy won't be available this weekend versus Tennessee due to a coach's decision, as his role as a wide receiver will be even more limited now that Mike Williams appears back to full health. His next chance to suit up will now come Week 16 in Indianapolis.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Barely used in win
Bandy went without a target while taking the field for two of the Chargers' 64 snaps on offense in Sunday's 25-24 win over the Cardinals.
Even though the Chargers were without Mike Williams (ankle), Bandy still couldn't carve out much of a role in Los Angeles' receiver rotation. The two snaps were Bandy's fewest in his eight appearances on the season.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Reverts to No. 5 receiver role
Bandy did not catch his only target Sunday in a Week 11 loss to Kansas City.
Bandy played at least 58 percent of the Chargers' offensive snaps in each of the team's games between Week 7 and Week 10, but he saw just eight snaps (12 percent) Sunday. That was largely due to the return of both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams (ankle), though Williams reaggravated his injury in the first half. Even if Williams is forced to miss Week 12, Bandy probably won't be a major contributor with Allen back on the field and Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter seemingly ahead of him on the receiver depth chart....

Chargers' Michael Bandy: Kept in check
Bandy did not catch his lone target in the 22-16 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.
With Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (foot) out once again, Bandy wound up playing 49 offensive snaps (84 percent); however, the short-yardage specialist was completely kept in check. Despite the extended playing time of late, the undrafted rookie hasn't been able to attract much in the way of targets.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Does little with many targets
Bandy caught five of his eight targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons.
Given Bandy somehow tallied negative yards across eight targets combined the previous two weeks, Sunday's performance is admittedly an upgrade, but with Bandy slotted into what amounts to a "bubble specialist" role, it's hard to imagine the yards-per-target figure improving noticeably. The undrafted rookie did play 79 percent of the offensive snaps with both Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) out, so it's possible Bandy could have some value in deeper PPR leagues next week with the status of both stud wideouts still up in the air....

Chargers' Michael Bandy: Loses yards on six targets
Bandy recorded minus-5 receiving yards on six targets while playing 40 of the Chargers' 69 snaps on offense in last Sunday's 37-23 loss to the Seahawks.
Incredibly, Bandy has negative yardage on eight targets over his last two contests, as he recorded a four-yard reception on two looks in the Chargers' previous game Week 6 versus the Broncos. The 58 percent snap share he saw Week 7 was a new season-high rate, but expect Bandy's opportunities to take a hit coming out of the Week 8 bye if Keenan Allen (hamstring) -- who was limited against the Seahawks -- and Joshua Palmer (concussion) are both available. Bandy may not fall out of the game plan entirely, however, as the Chargers are likely to be without Mike Williams (ankle) for at least a couple of games.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Michael Bandy: Signed to 53-man roster
The Chargers signed Bandy from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Bandy had been elevated from the practice squad three times prior to this week, so Los Angeles was required to sign him to the active roster in order to summon him again. The second-year pro has logged 28 offensive snaps on the campaign, catching three of four targets for 53 yards. He'll serve as much-needed wide receiver depth with Keenan Allen (hamstring) deemed questionable and Joshua Palmer (concussion) ruled out for Sunday's contest against Seattle.... See More ...

Michael Bandy: Moves back to practice squad
Bandy reverted to the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Bandy was elevated to the Chargers' active roster prior to the team's Monday night matchup against the Broncos, where he played two snaps on special teams, five offensive snaps and hauled in one of two targets for four yards. Because Monday was the third consecutive week in which the 190-pounder had been promoted from the team's practice squad, he'll now have to sign to the Chargers' active roster in order to be eligible to play again in 2022....

Chargers' Michael Bandy: Suiting up for Monday night
The Chargers elevated Bandy from the practice squad to their active roster Monday ahead of their game versus Denver, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
It will be the third consecutive week Bandy is active for the Chargers and the last time he's eligible to be elevated from the practice squad before he would have to be signed to the team's active roster in order to play. The 24-year-old wideout has two receptions for 49 yards on two targets through two games this season.... See More ... See Less
