  • Texans' DeMarcus Walker: Placed on injured reserve

    Walker was injured in Week 12 against the Jets and was unable to practice all week, which led to him being ruled out for Week 13 on Friday. The move to IR guarantees he will miss the next three weeks and will lead to added opportunity for either Roy Lopez (illness) or Jaleel Johnson.

  • Texans' DeMarcus Walker: Returns from NFI list

    Walker (undisclosed) was activated from the non-football injury list Monday, Mark Lane of USA Today reports.

  • Texans' DeMarcus Walker: Set to join Houston

    Walker has indicated that he's signing with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Walker visited the Texans for a workout, and apparently the two sides worked out a deal during that time.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Back from IR

    The Broncos activated Walker (calf) from injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Both Walker and Dre'Mont Jones (knee) were activated from IR on Saturday, and one of the two defensive ends could start Sunday's game versus the Chiefs because Jurrell Casey (biceps) is done for the year. Walker played just 21 defensive snaps through the first two games of the season and didn't record a tackle, so Jones may be favored in the competition.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: May return Week 7

    Walker (calf) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

    If Walker's able to return to the lineup this Sunday versus the Chiefs, he could enjoy an expanded role since Jurrell Casey (biceps) is out for the season. However, he likely won't secure a starting gig, especially if Dre'Mont Jones (knee) is also activated from IR.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Placed on injured reserve

    The Broncos placed Walker (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Walker played 17 defensive snaps in Week 1 and didn't record a tackle, and he was hurt early in this past Sunday's game against the Steelers. He's eligible to return in Week 6 against the Dolphins, but the Broncos have iffy depth going forward, as Jurrell Casey and Shelby Harris are the only remaining defensive ends. The team will likely bring in reinforcements as a result.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Expected to miss several weeks

    Walker (calf) is expected to miss several weeks according to head coach Vic Fangio.

    Walker will remain on the active roster while he misses time. The defensive end suffered the calf injury in Week 2's loss to the Steelers. The Broncos are dealing with a handful of injuries along the defensive line, including Dre'Mont Jones (knee) and Jonathan Harris (illness), so they may look to bring in some extra help while Walker remains sidelined.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Will not return Week 2

    Walker (calf) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    The Florida State product garnered 21 percent of the defensive snaps Week 1 against the Titans, but Vic Fangio's unit will now be forced to search elsewhere for depth defensive end snaps. Dre'Mont Jones will likely see a resulting uptick in usage behind starters Jurrell Casey and Shelby Harris.

  • Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Active Week 17

    Walker (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Raiders.
