Darqueze Dennard: Gets practice squad chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts signed Dennard to the practice squad Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan reports.

Dennard is a former first-round pick with plenty of experience. He makes for an ideal emergency reserve option at cornerback.

Darqueze Dennard: Checks in with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (undisclosed) had a workout with the Ravens on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Dennard was waived off Arizona's injured reserve in early September but now appears to be healthy. The veteran cornerback was limited to eight games with Atlanta last season due to injury and remains in search of a new team.

Darqueze Dennard: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. The 2014 first-round pick has played just 17 games over the last two seasons, recording 73 tackles, 10 pass breakups and an interception.

Cardinals' Darqueze Dennard: Done for the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cardinals' Darqueze Dennard: Signed by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Thursday.

Dennard played in just eight games with the Falcons before missing the remainder of the 2020 season with a quadriceps injury. The 29-year-old will join his second team in as many years after spending his first six campaigns with the Bengals.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Could remain in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Won't return in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dennard was unable to practice in any capacity throughout the week and will miss the Falcons' season finale as a result. His 2020 campaign comes to an end with 36 tackles (28 solo), five passes defensed and one interception in eight games.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Remains sidelined by quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (quadriceps) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Dennard's absence will be a notable loss for Atlanta's secondary, especially with Ricardo Allen (concussion) also sidelined. Isaiah Oliver, Kendall Sheffield and Blidi Wreh-Wilson will all be candidates to handle increased roles as long as Dennard can't go.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Sits out Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (quadriceps) did not participate during Wednesday's practice session, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Dennard garnered 82 percent of the defensive snaps Week 14 during a loss to the Chargers, his second consecutive outing fielding more than three-quarters of the workload. Since returning from a hamstring injury that held him on IR for all of October, the 29-year-old has avoided any setbacks. Now, his quad issue will require monitoring over the next pair of practice sessions to get a gauge on his availability for a Week 15 matchup against Tampa Bay.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Shifts to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons activated Dennard (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday.

Dennard missed five games with a hamstring injury, but the 29-year-old cornerback has a week of practice under his belt and will start Sunday versus the Broncos. Starting defensive ends Dante Fowler (hamstring) and Takkarist McKinley (groin) have been ruled out, so Dennard's work in coverage will be even more important. Dennard allowed a 75.4 passer rating through the first three games of the year.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Preparing to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons designated Dennard (hamstring) to return from injured reserve Monday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Dennard now has a 21-day window to return from IR. The veteran cornerback will return to practice this week and likely will be watched closely, and he could be available as soon as this Sunday's home game versus Denver. He'll need to be formally activated to the 53-man roster by Saturday to play Sunday.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Placed on IR with injured hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (hamstring) has been placed on IR, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Dennard certainly didn't look hampered by a hamstring injury, as he still racked up six tackles and an interception in Week 3 against the Bears. Soft tissue injuries are tricky, though, and Atlanta's not taking any chances with the veteran cornerback. With the special IR rules in 2020, Dennard will be eligible to return after three weeks, so the earliest he could play again would be Week 7 against the Lions.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: All over field Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard registered six tackles, two pass deflections and an interception during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Bears.

After playing 63 percent of the defensive snaps in his Falcons debut Week 1, Dennard has logged starts in back-to-back weeks while fielding at least 94 percent of the workload in each contest. He and Blidi Wreh-Wilson each produced takeaways as cornerbacks Kendall Sheffield (foot) and A.J. Terrell (reserve-COVID-19) sat out Week 3, but the Bears were capable of putting up 300-plus passing yards in the game, as well as 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Not on Wednesday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Dennard left the season opener against Seattle with an undisclosed injury, but he's evidently over whatever was bothering him. He should be out there in Week 2 against the Cowboys' high-powered receiving corps.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Suffers injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard left the team's Week 1 contest against the Seahawks and did not return, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear what kind of injury Dennard suffered, though he did not return to game action. Kendall Sheffield also went down for the Falcons, potentially leaving them thin in the secondary for a Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys.

Falcons' Darqueze Dennard: Deal with Atlanta finalized
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dennard signed a one-year contract with the Falcons on Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The 28-year-old cornerback joins Atlanta after negotiations on a three-year, $13.5 million contract to join the Jaguars fell through in March. Adding Dennard -- who has 24 career starts and 77 appearances to his name -- provides the position group with much needed veteran experience, as first-round pick A.J. Terrell enters his rookie season facing an abbreviated offseason. Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield show promise, meanwhile, but offer just 29 combined NFL starts. Dennard is expected to fill the nickelback position, while Sheffield, Oliver and Terrell vie for starting roles defending the perimeter.
