Cardinals' Joe Walker: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed a contract with Arizona on Wednesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Walker was signed from the Eagles' practice squad, having logged 10 tackles for Philadelphia in 2017. The 25-year-old should slot in as a depth middle linebacker and special-teams contributer for the Cardinals.

Joe Walker: Let go by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was waived by the Eagles on Sunday.

Walker logged 10 tackles for the Eagles in 2017, seeing roughly 100 snaps on both defense and special teams. The Oregon product will become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Appears clear of neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) recorded two tackles (one solo) and played 26 defensive snaps in Thursday's presason game against the Patriots.

Walker landed on injured reserve with a neck injury last December but is now clear of the issue. The 25-year-old also had 19 special team snaps, where he is likely to contribute in addition to being a rotational middle linebacker.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Walker on injured reserve Friday with a neck injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of reports.

Walker missed some time with a neck injury earlier this season and didn't appear on the injury report this week until he sat out Friday's session. Cornerback Sidney Jones (Achilles) is likely to be activated from the Non-Football Injury list, and Dannell Ellerbe should be the Eagles' primary option at middle linebacker.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) was a full participant at the Eagles Wednesday.

Walker missed the last two games with the neck injury but appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Giants. The 25-year-old should return to the role of starting middle linebacker for the Eagles.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Will be sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Walker will miss his second consecutive game since being named the starting middle linebacker in the wake of Jordan Hicks' season-ending Achilles injury. The Eagles have gotten creative without their top-two middle linebackers, and no individual replacement has logged enough snaps to be fantasy relevant.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Walker, who was sidelined for the Eagles' Week 13 tilt against Seattle, logged a trio of full practices this week, as the neck injury appears to have subsided for the most part. An update on his official status in Week 14 should become available prior to game time.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Returns in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) was a full participant at the Eagles' practice Wednesday.

Walker suffered a stinger in Week 12 and was unable to play in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, but is starting this week of practice trending in the right direction. Assuming the 24-year-old avoids a setback in practice this week, he should slot back in as starting middle linebacker against the Rams on Sunday.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Walker wasn't fully able to settle into his role as the starting middle linebacker before he was injured in Week 12 against the Bears. Veteran linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who has been on the Eagles roster for less than a month, likely will slot in as the starter and could be due for a solid stat line.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Still on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Walker left Week 12's game against the Bears with a stinger, and the issue is still nagging him at the end of the week. With Jordan Hicks (Achilles) on injured reserve, Walker is now the Eagles' top middle linebacker, so if he can play, expect him to have a chance at posting solid numbers.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (neck) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Bears, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The news came as the Eagles were leading the Bears by 28 late in the fourth quarter, so there's no reason for the Eagles to rush Walker back into the game. With a matchup against the Seahawks on the Week 13 horizon, more definitive updates should be available once practices resume Wednesday.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Leaves with stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker suffered a stinger against the Bears on Sunday and is questionable to return.

Walker looked to be in pain as he left the field and he was the last healthy Eagles middle linebacker. Therefore, Philly likely will move Mychal Kendricks to the middle of the field, while Najee Goode and Kamu Grugier-Hill will both see an increase in their snaps.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Turning heads early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had a big day on Day 2 of training camp, intercepting a pass and deflecting another which also resulted in an interception, the Eagles' official site reports.

The 2016 seventh-round pick missed all of his rookie season after tearing his ACL last August but looks to be fully healthy now. On Tuesday, he looked "explosive, violent, and stout at the point of attack" in drills and made some big plays. Known for his athleticism coming out of Oregon, Walker is someone to keep an eye on in IDP drafts this summer.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Tears ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (knee) is out for the season now that his injury has been confirmed to be a torn ACL, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Walker had an MRI on Friday that confirmed his injury. His absence leaves the Eagles thin at the top of the linebacker position with just two middle linebackers left on the roster. Ed Reynolds figures to see extra reps with Walker out.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Team fears torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles fear that Walker (knee) suffered a torn ACL in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, Geoff Mosher of 975 The Fanatic in Philadelphia reports.

The rookie linebacker left Thursday's game with an apparent knee injury and now that the team has had time to examine him, the prognosis looks bleak. Kiko Alonso's departure in the offseason gave Walker a chance to make an immediate impact at middle linebacker, but if it is confirmed that he has a torn ACL, the Eagles will be thin at that spot. Local product Don Cherry out of Villanova could have a chance to step up in Walker's absence.

Eagles' Joe Walker: Suffers knee injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was forced out of Thursday's tilt with the Steelers due to a knee injury, Martin Frank of the Delawre News Journal reports.

Walker was taken in the seventh round of this year's draft. He currently projects as the Eagles' backup middle linebacker. The severity of his knee injury is unknown at this time.
