  • Jaguars' Michael Walker: Sent to COVID list

    The Jaguars placed Walker (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

    As an undrafted rookie last season, Walker got some run with the 53-man roster starting Week 9, serving as the Jaguars' kick returner and hauling in two of three targets before hitting IR in late December due to a hamstring injury. His potential to make the final roster this season was touchy following the additions of Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson in the 2020 draft. With his placement on the COVID list, Walker has to pass the required testing protocol before he's able to take part in camp.

  • Jaguars' Michael Walker: Long odds to crack roster

    Walker (hamstring) will have an uphill battle to make Jacksonville's Week 1 roster coming out of training camp, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    The 23-year-old appeared in seven games as an undrafted rookie in 2019 last year and provided most of his value as a kick returner with 18 runbacks for 411 yards. The Jags return their top-four wideouts from 2019 and added Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson via the draft, so Walker may realistically be competing for a spot on the practice squad.
