Orleans Darkwa: Trying out for Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa will take part in a tryout with the Redskins on Sunday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Darkwa previously worked out for the Jets in late July, only for his unemployment to continue into another month. The Redskins are in dire need of RB depth with Derrius Guice (knee) out for the season and Chris Thompson (leg), Samaje Perine (ankle) and Byron Marshall (ankle) all tending to injuries at the moment. Darkwa is a familiar face in Washington after spending the past three and a half seasons with the Giants, with whom he averaged 4.3 yards per carry and hauled in 26 of 40 targets in 48 games.

Orleans Darkwa: Visiting with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have scheduled a visit with Darkwa on Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The workout is the second for Darkwa in a three-day span after getting checked out by the Bills on Thursday. He's also the second running back contacted by the Jets (Alfred Morris) due to the serious foot injury suffered by Elijah McGuire. Despite working behind a dismal Giants offensive line last season, Darkwa led the team with 751 rushing yards and five touchdowns on a respectable 4.4 YPC.

Orleans Darkwa: Works out for Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa worked out for the Buffalo Bills on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Darkwa has drawn interest from numerous teams this offseason, but this is his first visit since being medically cleared for football activities. The 26-year-old back averaged 4.4 yards per attempt last season behind a struggling Giants offensive line, but struggled in pass catching. It makes sense that Buffalo would be interested in Darkwa after his breakout season, especially given the uncertainty surrounding running back LeSean McCoy.

Orleans Darkwa: Cleared for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa (knee) announced via his personal twitter account that he has been medically cleared for football activities.

Darkwa underwent a minor knee procedure in early May to remove a metal plate that was originally inserted in his leg last offseason to protect a fractured tibia -- which Darkwa played through in 2017. He'll now look to catch on with a team ahead of the 2018 season. He reportedly had several interested teams prior to his surgery after he averaged 4.4 yards per carry for the Giants last year. Look for him to sign on as a backup or change of pace running back for the coming year.

Orleans Darkwa: Undergoes minor knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa underwent minor surgery Wednesday to remove a plate that was inserted in his leg last offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Darkwa's X-ray indicated that the fracture has fully healed, so the plate that limited his explosiveness has been removed and he should be ready for on-field activity in about four weeks.

Darkwa reportedly has drawn interest from a number of teams this offseason, but apparently hasn't been satisfied with the offers presented to him. It doesn't sound like he'll face any health concerns heading into NFL training camps, so the procedure shouldn't affect the market for the 26-year-old back, who averaged 4.4 yards per attempt last season behind a Giants offensive line that Pro Football Focus ranked as the 26th-best unit in the league.
