  • Darrius Shepherd: Cut from practice squad

    Shepherd was cut from the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Shepherd was signed to Arizona's practice squad Wednesday but will part ways with the organization less than a week later. The 26-year-old has yet to make a regular-season appearance in 2021.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Heads to desert

    Shepherd was signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

    Shepherd spent training camp in Kansas City but was unable to make the initial 53-man roster. The 26-year-old appeared in 14 games for Green Bay over the previous two seasons and has six catches for 47 yards while also operating as a return man.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Fails to make roster in Kansas City

    Shepherd was waived by the Chiefs on Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The third-year wide receiver spent the last two years with the Packers getting work as a returner, tallying 374 return yards. The Chiefs' special teams coordinator called Shepherd a sure-handed returner, so he might be brought back as a practice squad member or signed by a different team that is desperate for a kick returner.

  • Chiefs' Darrius Shepherd: Picked up by Chiefs

    Shepherd has been signed by the Chiefs, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

    Shepherd was a tryout participant during Kansas City's minicamp and has ultimately earned a spot on the roster. He spent the previous two seasons in Green Bay, where he was primarily utilized as a kick returner.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Waived by Packers

    Shepherd was released by the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    With Allen Lazard (core) now healthy, Shepherd simply did not have an opportunity to do much from an offensive perspective, reinforced by the two snaps he played in Sunday's game against the Bears. The fact Shepherd was also dreadful as a special teams player certainly didn't help, as the 25-year-old only averaged 20.6 yards per kick return across 11 attempts, also coughing up a critical fumble in a pivotal loss to the Colts two weeks ago. It's possible the depth wideout could return to the team's practice squad should he pass through waivers.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Active Sunday

    Shepherd (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

    Shepherd was a full practice participant the last two days of the week, so it's not much of a surprise he's suiting up Sunday. The 25-year-old should fill a depth role with the receiving corps back to full strength.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Officially questionable for Sunday

    Shepherd (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Shepherd practiced without limitations the last two days, but the Packers apparently want to evaluate his shoulder over the weekend before making a final decision on his status. Even if he's given a clean bill of health, however, Shepherd could end up as a healthy scratch if both Allen Lazard (core) and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) play.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Back to full practice

    Shepherd (shoulder) logged a full practice session Thursday.

    Shepherd was inactive for Green Bay's Week 10 matchup against the Jaguars, but improvement from limited to full practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday bodes well for his status. The North Dakota State product has recorded five receptions for 46 yards over six appearances this year, also making an impact on special teams with four kick-return attempts for a total of 89 yards and one punt return for six yards.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Limited practice Wednesday

    Shepherd (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Shepherd's making good progress, as he's practicing to start the week after making just one appearance at practice last week. If he's able to shake off this injury, he could be in line for a decent workload Sunday against the Colts depending on the statuses of Davante Adams (ankle) and Allen Lazard (core).

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Won't play Sunday

    Shepherd (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

    Shepherd came into the contest drawing a questionable tag after logging DNP/DNP/LP through three practice sessions this week. The North Dakota State product has played at least 25 percent of offensive snaps in five of his six games this season, so his absence will hurt the team's receiving depth. With Shepherd out, Equanimeous St. Brown and Malik Taylor stand to receive a slight uptick in snaps in Week 10.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Draws questionable tag

    Shepherd (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Shepherd returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday after having missed the first two sessions of the week. The North Dakota State alum has handled at least 25 percent of offensive snaps in five of six appearances this year, and he'd stand to play a similar depth role against Jacksonville if cleared to suit up.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Misses practice Wednesday

    Shepherd (shoulder) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Shepherd has maintained a consistent role on offense over the last three weeks, playing at least 25 percent of the snaps in each game and recording two receptions for nine yards. This is a new injury for the second-year receiver and makes his status uncertain for this Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. His practice capacity Thursday will provide a better idea about his Week 10 status.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: One catch in win

    Shepherd caught his lone target for three yards in Thursday's 34-17 win over the 49ers.

    Shepherd has just five catches all season. He'll likely continue to play a limited role barring multiple injuries to the receiving options ahead of him on Green Bay's depth chart.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Catches one pass

    Shepherd caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

    Shepherd was on the field for about a quarter of the plays the Packers ran in Week 8, and that was not enough time for him to do anything notable in the box score. Shepherd has averaged 23 snaps per game since making his season debut in Week 3 and has totaled seven receptions for 43 yards. He is one of a few Packers receivers whose roster spot comes into question when Allen Lazard (abdomen) comes off injured reserve.
