Texans' DeMarcus Walker: Set to join Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. The details of Walker's contract have not yet been made available, but he figures to play at least a rotational role on Houston's defensive line after recording 4.0 sacks in 2019 and 4.5 sacks in 2020, both with the Broncos.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Back from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Walker was sporting a questionable designation coming in despite having practiced in full all week, but he'll be in there against a Raiders squad that will be missing Josh Jacobs (shoulder) for the regular-season finale.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Injury resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) was downgraded to questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Raiders, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Walker missed the last two games with this ankle injury, but he was a full participant in practice all week. O'Halloran reported that Walker will have a pregame workout to see if he can play, but the full-speed drills certainly bode well for the 2017 second-round pick. If he's able to go, Walker will start at defensive end and look to build on the four sacks he's recorded through nine games.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Estimated as full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

After missing the past two games with an ankle injury, Walker's estimated lack of limitations Wednesday suggests he's well on track to return to the field for Sunday's season finale against the Raiders.

December 23, 2019 12:08 AM
Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Not ready for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Walker only practiced on a limited basis Thursday and, as evidenced by this news, couldn't shake the injury in time. In his stead, Dre'Mont Jones is the lead candidate to get the start at one of the defensive end positions.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Walker returned to a limited practice Thursday to earn the questionable tag. Jonathan Harris could see extra playing time if Walker is forced to sit out.

December 18, 2019 02:48 PM
Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Walker (ankle) is not practicing, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Walker missed Week 15's loss to the Chiefs due to an ankle issue, and he's yet to make tangible progress in his recovery. He'll almost certainly need to resume practicing in some capacity ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Lions for any chance of retaking the field.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Won't play Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Walker saw his first game action since Week 8 during last Sunday's win over the Texans, but he didn't appear on the injury report until he sat out Thursday's practice. Adam Gotsis (knee) is also out and Dre'Mont Jones (ankle) is questionable, leaving Shelby Harris as the team's only fully healthy defensive end for this weekend.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Walker wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that his ankle injury may have been picked up during practice. With Derek Wolfe (elbow) on injured reserve and Dre'Mont Jones (ankle) nursing a significant injury, Walker could be in line for a key role on defense during Sunday's tilt in Kansas City if healthy.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (coach's decision) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Vikings, Ben Swanson of the team's official site reports.

Walker had suited up in full practice throughout the week while dealing with a shoulder injury but still won't get a chance to suit up. In his stead, Adam Gotsis and Dre'Mont Jones will handle depth defensive linemen duties for the game.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Walker said Tuesday he was feeling better and that he expected to play against the Vikings this weekend, and his full practice participation reinforces that idea. The 25-year-old should resume working as a rotational piece on the defensive line for San Fran.

November 12, 2019 04:20 PM
Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Aiming to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) is feeling much better and hopes to play Sunday against the Vikings, Kyle Newman of the Denver Post reports.

Walker put in a week of limited practices prior to being inactive for Week 9 against Cleveland, and now he's had the bye week to recover even further, so he seems to be on the right track. The 25-year-old has 18 tackles (12 solo) and four sacks on the season so far.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Sitting in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Browns.

Walker was able to practice in limited fashion all week, but he'll still sit for Sunday's contest against Cleveland. Walker's solid rotational presence on the defensive line (four sacks in part-time duty this season) could be missed against an inconsistent but star-laded Browns offense.

November 1, 2019 05:28 PM
Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Walker worked as a limited practice participant this week and was unable to show enough to avoid the questionable tag. Jonathan Harris would likely see increased reps as a rotational defensive end should Walker be unable to play.

Broncos' DeMarcus Walker: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had five tackles (three solo) and one sack in Thursday's 30-6 loss to the Chiefs.

Walker played 31 of 61 defensive snaps with Adam Gotsis (coach's decision) inactive, his highest snap total of the season. He has 17 tackles (11 solo) and four sacks through seven games.
