Darqueze Dennard: Reaches injury settlement
The Cardinals waived Dennard (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.
Dennard will now be eligible to sign another contract once he's healthy, but he'll need to wait at least three weeks if he wants to re-sign with the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Darqueze Dennard: Done for the season
The Cardinals placed Dennard (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
The transaction's timing brings an end to Dennard's 2021 season, barring an injury settlement. The nature of the veteran cornerback's injury remains undisclosed, but the fact that he's sidelined would seem to thrust rookie Marco Wilson into a larger backup role. Dennard only logged eight appearances in Atlanta last season before suffering a quadriceps injury.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Darqueze Dennard: Signed by Arizona
Dennard signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Thursday.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Could remain in Atlanta
The Falcons could prioritize retaining Dennard (quadriceps) this offseason, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dennard was a pillar of Atlanta's secondary when healthy in 2020, but it's fair to say that injury concerns have been consistent for the veteran cornerback recently. He was only able to suit up for eight games with the Falcons in 2020 before a quadriceps injury prematurely ended his year, and he only managed nine appearances with the Bengals the season prior. Factoring in that medical history, Dennard could be motivated to agree to a team-friendly deal with the Falcons this offseason.... See More ... See Less

Dennard (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Will McFadden of AtlantaFalcons.com reports.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Misses another practice
Dennard (quadriceps) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's estimated injury report, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The veteran defensive back appears to be in jeopardy of sitting out a third consecutive game, having missed back-to-back practice sessions to kick off the week. Dennard has yet to demonstrate any progress towards a Week 17 activation, as he remains without even a limited practice appearance since Dec. 16. A positive COVID-19 test within the organization kept the Falcons from practicing Thursday. Should Atlanta return to in-person activities Friday, Dennard's status for the regular-season finale in Tampa Bay may become more clear.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Remains sidelined by quad injury
Dennard (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dennard has missed the past two games due to this injury, and it looks like he could be tracking toward a third consecutive absence. The starting cornerback's absence would create additional opportunities for Tom Brady and the high-powered Tampa Bay passing attack in the regular season finale, though Dennard will have two more opportunities to return to practice this week and show progress in his recovery....

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Not available Week 16
The Falcons ruled Dennard (quadriceps) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dennard wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week while battling the injury, making it unsurprising that he'll remain sidelined for a second straight game. Given that the Falcons have little on the line for their season finale at Tampa Bay on Jan. 3, Dennard could have a tough time gaining clearance to play unless he resumes practicing fully at some point next week....

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Misses Wednesday's practice
Dennard (quadricep) did not practice Wednesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Dennard's quad injury forced him to miss last weekend's loss to the Buccaneers, and it would appear that he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's upcoming road game against the Chiefs. If the starting cornerback is forced to miss another game, Isaiah Oliver, Kendall Sheffield and Blidi Wreh-Wilson will once again all be candidates to handle increased roles.... See More ... See Less
