Leon Washington caught 7-of-7 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 16 loss to the Jaguars, adding four rushes for 11 yards.
With Dexter McCluster (knee) done for the season, Washington was the Titans' change-of-pace back, and easily led the backfield in yards from scrimmage. Amusingly, Washington received a goal-line carry on Tennessee's opening drive. He failed to cash it in, but caught an eight-yard score two plays later. It would go down as the Titans' only touchdown of the night. Despite the nifty performance, Washington won't be on the Week 17 DFS radar. Dec 18 - 11:40 PM

Titans re-signed RB/KR Leon Washington.

Washington finished out 2013 as the Titans' return specialist. He'll fight for a job on special teams.
Mar 11 - 4:09 PM

Titans signed RB/KR Leon Washington.

WR Devon Wylie was waived in a corresponding roster move. Waived by the Patriots three days ago, Washington will immediately slide in as the Titans' return specialist, which has been a sore spot for Tennessee this season. He won't have a role on offense.

Patriots waived RB Leon Washington.

Washington was active for just two games this season and has been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 5. As a vested veteran, his $1.2 million salary is fully guaranteed. The Patriots have promoted CB Justin Green from the practice squad to take his spot on the active roster.

Leon Washington (ankle) will not play in Monday's game at Carolina.

Washington probably would have been inactive even if he were healthy now that Shane Vereen (wrist) is expected back.

Leon Washington (ankle) is not practicing Friday.

Washington hasn't practiced at all this week after he hurt his ankle on the opening kickoff last Sunday. He won't play in Week 6 versus the Saints.

Leon Washington (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Washington hurt his ankle on the opening kickoff in last week's loss to the Bengals. He has one touch from scrimmage all season.
Wed, Oct 9, 2013 11:29:00 AM

Leon Washington was forced from the Patriots' Week 5 game against the Bengals with an ankle injury, and will not return.

Washington went down on the opening kickoff, but wasn't officially ruled out until the fourth quarter. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Washington was going to "have (his) number called," but had yet to notch a touch before going down. His injury occurred on special teams. Washington likely has a high-ankle sprain.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Patriots RB/KR Leon Washington will "have (his) number called" in Week 5 against the Bengals.

It's an indication that Brandon Bolden's knee injury is going to limit him behind LeGarrette Blount, but it's also possible the Patriots just want to stick with a three-man rotation in the absence of Stevan Ridley. Blount is the only safe option for fantasy purposes, with Bolden representing little more than a desperation FLEX play. Washington shouldn't be started in any format.

Leon Washington rushed once for one yard in New England's Week 2 win over the Jets.

He was targeted once in the passing game, but couldn't make the catch. In theory, Washington is the Patriots' third-down back in the absence of Shane Vereen, but his snap count appeared to be in the single digits Thursday. He's not worth a second thought in re-draft leagues.

Leon Washington is the potential "next man up" in the Patriots' passing back role.

Shane Vereen (wrist) is out a few weeks. Unlike LeGarrette Blount and Brandon Bolden, Washington is at least capable of playing on third downs, contributing as a receiver in the passing game and doing some "joker" things. His role is going to expand as a complement to Stevan Ridley. Extreme deep leaguers can put Washington on their radar.

Patriots re-signed RB/KR Leon Washington.

Washington was just released on Sunday and visited with the Jets and Giants earlier this week. As an eight-year veteran, his salary will now be fully guaranteed. The Patriots also re-signed FB James Develin on Friday to complete their 53-man roster.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 02:51:00 PM

The Jets worked out free agent RB/KR Leon Washington Wednesday.

The Jets cut Joe McKnight and currently only have three running backs on the roster (Mike Goodson is suspended four games). Washington spent 2006-09 with the Jets, bringing back four kickoffs for touchdowns and adding 493 touches from scrimmage. He went to the Pro Bowl while with the Seahawks last year. Washington worked out for the Giants Tuesday.

Free agent RB/KR Leon Washington worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.

Washington could be an option on kick returns in New York with dynamic return man David Wilson's health taking on even greater importance following the loss of Andre Brown. Washington had an unimpressive camp for the Patriots, however.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 05:35:00 PM

Patriots released RB/KR Leon Washington.

They're eating a $360,000 signing bonus. Washington is 31 years old now, and the Patriots clearly believe he's lost a step. He also lost a fumble in New England's preseason finale. Washington will probably get one more look from an NFL team, but his career looks headed the way of Josh Cribbs'.
