Donnell was released by the Ravens on Friday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell was signed by the Ravens back at the end of July following a disappointing 2016 season with the Giants. His release shows that Baltimore, even with Crockett Gillmore's season-ending knee injury, feels as though they have enough depth at tight end with the likes of Nick Boyle, Ben Watson and Maxx Williams. Donnell, even with his

Donnell (hand) played 39 snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight and had been dealing with a hand injury since early August, but he managed to play nearly 60 percent of Baltimore's offensive snaps in Saturday's dress rehearsal. He hauled in his lone target for a two-yard gain as his only contribution in the passing game.

Donnell injured his hand in Thursday's practice session, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell joins the multitude of injured Ravens tight ends, though his injury isn't as serious as his peers'. He reportedly made a diving catch Thursday and landed on the ball with his fingers underneath it. Though it isn't expected to be a long-term ailment, he could miss some time. Look for Nick Boyle and Vince Mayle to see some added reps in practice as the only healthy backups behind apparent-starter Ben Watson.

Donnell signed a contract with the Ravens on Sunday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell had a relatively disappointing 2016 campaign with the Giants, pulling in just 15 receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown across 14 games. That prompted the Giants to let him walk during free agency. However, with the Ravens losing both Dennis Pitta (hip) and Darren Waller (suspension) for the season, as well as Crockett Gillmore's recent knee injury, Donnell will bring in some much-needed depth to the position. He'll battle with the likes of Ben Watson, Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams for time at tight end throughout training camp.

Donnell will not be re-signed by the Giants this offseason, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell has spent all four of his professional seasons with the Giants, but he's failed to build on his faux-breakout 2014 campaign that included 63 catches for 623 yards and six touchdowns. In fact, besides that season, the 28-year-old boasts just 47 catches for 346 yards and three scores in his career. While missing 10 games over the past two seasons has contributed toward that decline in production, Donnell is nonetheless now slated to resume his career elsewhere in 2017.

Donnell (illness) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday night's game against the Cowboys after fully practicing Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell was sidelined by illness Thursday, but he returned in a full capacity Friday to remove any concern over his Week 14 status.

Donnell missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell has been a fantasy non-entity this season, accruing 15 catches (on 22 targets) for 92 yards and one touchdown in 10 contests. Because he recorded his last reception in Week 7, the illness shouldn't impact his viability, or lack thereof.

Donnell caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Donnell has yet to break the 40-yard barrier in an offense that runs through its receiving corps. The Giants' starting tight end has failed to match even his backup, Will Tye's, modest catch and yardage totals and isn't worth a fantasy roster spot at this point.

Donnell caught six of seven targets for 34 yards against the Ravens Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

He was part of Ben McAdoo's dink and dunk attack, but made a mental error, going out of bounds to stop the clock before getting a first down, forcing the Giants into a 4th-and-1. Still, he's the team's starting tight end for now.

Donnell (concussion) logged a full practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Jumping from limited to full in the first two practices of the week indicates that Donnell has proceeded through the league's protocol for head injuries. If he's indeed completed the program, he'll serve as the Giants' starting tight end Sunday versus the Ravens.
