Nick Roach: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Roach (concussion) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday, the Contra Costa Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Roach, the team's leading tackler from a year ago, suffered a concussion in the team's Aug. 22 preseason game and still has not progressed to the point where he can take part in full-contact practices. His placement on IR comes a devastating blow to an embattled linebacking corps that has also lost Kaluka Maiava (hamstring) for the year. Oakland went out and signed veteran Jamar Chaney to take Roach's place on the active roster, but waiver acquisition Ray-Ray Armstrong seems likely to take on the role of starter at middle linebacker.
Roach (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Roach missed just one game in his final four seasons in Chicago, totaling a career-high 75 tackles (54 solo) in 2009. He appears primed to begin his first year in Oakland as the starting middle linebacker, though there's little IDP upside with the lack of sacks and turnovers.

2012

Roach will have some competition at strong-side linebacker this season after the Bears signed Geno Hayes. While Roach has the advantage of familiarity with the team, Hayes' signing may be an indication the team envisions Roach more as a special teams player.

2011

Roach is currently in line to start on the strong side alongside Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs. While there may not be an abundance of tackles left after those to get theirs, Roach should be able to be very productive in his new starting role.

2010

Roach started 15 games for the Bears last season, but those starts came primarily as the result of injuries to Brian Urlacher, Pisa Tinoisamoa and Lance Briggs. With all three of those linebackers now healthy, Roach is unlikely to match his 2009 totals of 75 tackles, three forced fumbles and two sacks.

2009

Roach looked like a starter heading into 2009 before the Bears signed Pisa Tinoisamoa. Now, he'll likely be the fourth linebacker and should see time on special teams.
