  Colts | Week 3 Indianapolis Colts inactives    Sun Sep 22, 11:35 AM

The Indianapolis Colts have declared LB Jabaal Sheard, LB Darius Leonard, OT Le'Raven Clark, DL Jihad Ward, S Marvell Tell, RB Jonathan Williams and TE Hale Hentges inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: The Colts are missing two defensive starters, including an elite linebacker. TY Hilton and Marlon Mack will go in this one. Hilton should be a safe play, but Mack carries more risk than usual. The Colts may use a little more of Jordan Wilkins today to take it easy on Mack's calf.

  Colts | Jihad Ward placed on IR    Fri Oct 26, 02:48 PM

Indianapolis Colts DT Jihad Ward (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 26. The team also signed practice squad WR Steve Ishmael to their 53-man roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ishmael showed great ability on contested balls at Syracuse and got into the record books in a program that has been around for a while. It was a bit disappointing to see that fifth-round pick Reece Fountain didn't get the call up instead. Ishmael, like any other receiver Andrew Luck throws to, is worth monitoring.

  Cowboys | Jihad Ward expected to push for starting job    Fri Jul 13, 04:09 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Jihad Ward likely will push DT Maliek Collins (foot) for one of the starting defensive tackle jobs during training camp. Collins' status for the start of training camp is uncertain because he is recovering from foot surgery.

Footballguys view: Collins is the more explosive and productive pass rusher, but his foot issue is keeping him from building on his surprising rookie year in 2016. Ward was a disappointment in Oakland, but he is impressing so far in Dallas.

  Cowboys | Jihad Ward impressive so far    Fri Jun 15, 12:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys DL Jihad Ward got a lot of work with the first team this spring and has a chance to be a contributor during the season if he shows as well in training camp as he did during OTAs and minicamp, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

  Cowboys | Jihad Ward goes to Dallas    Sat Apr 28, 06:09 PM

The Dallas Cowboys acquired DE Jihad Ward from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for WR Ryan Switzer on Saturday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Switzer is the player dynasty owners (in super deep leagues) like. He's a quick, shifty slot receiver who has a bit of Danny Amendola to his game. The Raiders have a stacked group of WRs, adding Jordy Nelson in free agency and trading for both Switzer and Martavis Bryant during the 2018 NFL draft.

  Raiders | Jihad Ward may be PUP candidate    Fri Jul 7, 05:38 PM

Oakland Raiders DE Jihad Ward (foot) could be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list if he is not ready to practice when training camp begins.

Footballguys view: His surgery was supposedly minor, but the team will be very cautious with him. He was a starter for most of his rookie year, so his presence will be missed if he's not ready for the season opener.

  Raiders | Jihad Ward had surgery    Thu Jul 6, 04:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders DE Jihad Ward (foot) underwent minor surgery on his injured foot this offseason. While the Raiders will not rush him back, he is expected to be ready by mid-August, however.

Footballguys view: As Auric Goldfinger told James Bond, "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it's enemy action" - or in NFL terms, third time is cause for concern. Ward had surgery on the same foot in 2015, then had a knee operation in 2016. Here we are in 2017 and it's another date with a surgeon. He didn't have much impact in his rookie year and this won't help his chances to change that in the coming season.
