B.J. Raji: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Raji (biceps) was officially diagnosed with a torn biceps and will miss the entirety of the 2014 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Packers' worst fears were confirmed Saturday afternoon after tests revealed Raji suffered a fully torn biceps during Friday's preseason contest against the Raiders. He'll likely undergo surgery in the near future and begin a lengthy recovery process with the goal of returning in 2015. Green Bay could look to bring in a veteran to fill Raji's massive - both literally and figuratively - void on the defensive line.
Raji will have tests Saturday to determine if his injured right biceps is fully or partially torn, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Raji suffered the injury in Friday's exhibition game. He might be done for the season if the biceps is fully torn. Mike Pennel is the backup nose tackle, though defensive end Josh Boyd replaced Raji on Friday.
Raji left Friday's game with an arm injury and will not return, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Raji suffered an ankle injury Saturday, but he expects to be back at practice Monday, ESPN Wisconsin's Rob Demovsky reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Raji doesn't sound particularly concerned about the injury, which seems to be nothing more than a rolled ankle. He's locked in as the starter at nose tackle, and will have plenty of incentive to play well this season, while working on a one-year, $4 million contract. If Raji doesn't improve on last season's performance, he may have to settle for another disappointing contract.
Raji agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Packers on Friday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Raji was hoping to cash in with a huge multi-year deal this offseason, but his mediocre play in 2013 meant that was never likely to happen. The deal makes sense for both parties, as Raji gets a chance to build up his value, while the Packers retain a starting lineman at a very reasonable price. Raji isn't much of an IDP producer, and his fame far outpaces his performance to this point in his career. Still, he's a huge body with excellent athleticism for his size, and he's capable of playing multiple spots along the interior defensive line. The Packers will likely return Raji as their starting nose tackle, but he'd also be an option at 3-4 end, if the team acquires another lineman for the nose.
Raji made 17 tackles (12 solo) during the 2013 season.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Raji will start on the defensive line in the Packers' 3-4 defensive scheme.

2012

Raji's 2011 numbers fell from the numbers he put up in 2010 as the Packers' defense struggled as a unit. If they want to turn it around, Raji will play a key role wreaking havoc in the middle. But while he's an important part of the Packers' defense, his role is not one that will generate the statistics of other positions.

2011

Raji is unlikely to make a big statistical impact as the nose tackle in Green Bay’s 3-4, but he also figures to be more productive than most 3-4 noses due to his standout talent. The former ninth overall pick was disruptive in his second season last year, finishing with an impressive total of 6.5 sacks. If he can hold onto that pass-rushing production while improving his tackle totals a bit (he finished last year with just 39), he should be a decent late-round target in deep leagues.

2010

The 2009 first round pick was plagued by injuries to start the season, but showed flashes of why he was a top-10 pick later in the year. He'll be part of the defensive line rotation in 2010.
