Joins Chargers

The Chargers signed Patterson to a reserve/future deal Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Patterson wasn't able to make his way onto the field this season, but he'll now get a chance to compete for a spot on the Chargers' 53-man roster for 2024. He probably lacks the size to ever take on a workhorse role.

Latches on with Washington

Patterson signed with the Commanders' practice squad Tuesday.

The Commanders are dealing with injuries throughout their backfield, as Brian Robinson (hamstring), Chris Rodriguez (ankle) and Jonathan Williams (concussion) are all banged up. Patterson played in 20 games for Washington across the 2021-2022 seasons rushing 85 times for 344 yards and two touchdowns.

Loses his spot

Patterson was cut from the Chargers' practice squad Wednesday, Kris Rhim of reports.

Patterson has been on the team's practice squad since Sept. 13, but he never received an elevation to the active roster. The 23-year-old will work to find a new opportunity before the 2023 campaign comes to a close.

Gets new opportunity

Patterson signed with the Chargers' practice squad Wednesday.

Patterson spent camp with the Commanders, as well as the previous two seasons, but was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll now be an emergency option for Los Angeles, while he tries to earn a permanent spot on their active roster.

Let go by Washington

The Commanders are slated to release Patterson, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Patterson made a case for a spot on Washington's final roster when he turned eight carries into 51 yards in the team's preseason finale, but he nonetheless will now need to search for an opportunity elsewhere. However, Patterson could have earned himself a call back via the practice squad.

Makes final case for spot

Patterson took eight carries for 51 yards in Saturday's 21-19 preseason loss to the Bengals.

Patterson was the third back into the game, after Chris Rodriguez and Jonathan Williams, on a night that saw both Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson rested. Patterson thus appears unlikely to have a spot on the Week 1 roster, perhaps sticking around via the practice squad instead.

Leading rusher against Dallas

Patterson carried the ball 17 times for 78 yards and failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 26-6 win over the Cowboys.

Brian Robinson (knee) was inactive for the Commanders' season finale, so Patterson found himself as the primary option in the team's backfield after not getting a touch through the first 17 weeks, and he used the opportunity to establish a new career high in rushing yards for the game. Robinson's strong second half all but ensures he'll be the team's top RB in 2023, but if Antonio Gibson (knee/foot) gets moved in the offseason, Patterson could enter next season in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, giving the 2021 undrafted free agent some possible deep-league fantasy intrigue.

One of two healthy RBs

Patterson is one of two healthy running backs on Washington's roster ahead of Sunday's matchup with Dallas, Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The other is journeyman Jonathan Williams, who was the No. 3 back behind Brian Robinson (knee) and Antonio Gibson (knee/foot) for most of December. With Gibson missing the final two games of the season and Robinson out for the last game, Patterson has been called up from the practice squad the past two weeks for the first time since mid-November. The 2021 undrafted free agent is thus in line to get his first touches since Week 17 of last season, when he replaced an injured Gibson and tallied 98 total yards (plus a touchdown) as the starting running back. The Commanders also have Reggie Bonnafon as an option at running back after signing him to the practice squad Thursday.

Bumps up to 53-man roster

The Commanders signed Patterson from the practice squad to their active roster Thursday, Zach Selby of the team's official site reports.

With fellow running backs Antonio Gibson (knee) and J.D. McKissic (neck) both on injured reserve and Brian Robinson (knee) currently listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Patterson could find himself working in a backfield committee alongside Jonathan Williams in Week 18. The 23-year-old has seen game action on two separate occasions this campaign but has yet to register an offensive rep.
