Panthers' P.J. Walker: Inactive against Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (coach's decision) is inactive for the team's Week 1 contest against the Raiders, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Walker was battling Will Grier for the backup quarterback job throughout training camp. Though Walker did enough to earn a spot on the roster, Grier beat him out serve as the backup quarterback in Week 1 against the Raiders.

Panthers' P.J. Walker: Battling for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker remains locked in a battle with Will Grier for the Panthers' backup job, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

While Teddy Bridgewater is locked into the starting role, the backup job is still being contested. Walker started strong in the XFL for the Houston Roughnecks before the season was cancelled, posting 15 touchdowns and helping lead his team to a 5-0 record to begin the season. The 25-year-old has never played in a regular-season NFL game, however, and he could have a difficult time vaulting Grier since the team invested a 2019 third-round pick in the West Virginia product. It's unclear if the team will keep three quarterbacks on the roster or utilize the extra roster spot on a different position.

Panthers' P.J. Walker: Joins crowded QB room in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is signing with the Panthers, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Walker was well on his way to MVP honors in the XFL, posting a 15:4 TD:INT while leading the Houston Roughnecks to a 5-0 record. He previously spent time with the Colts' practice squad from 2017 to 2019, never quite making it to the active roster for a regular-season game. The 25-year-old now joins a crowded QB room in Carolina, where Teddy Bridgewater, Cam Newton (foot), Will Grier (foot) and Kyle Allen all have spots on the roster. Newton likely will be cut or traded soon enough, leaving Walker to duke it out with Grier and Allen for one or two roster spots behind Bridgewater. The XFL star may have been swayed by the chance to reunite with Panthers coach Matt Rhule, who was the head coach at Temple for each of Walker's four collegiate seasons.

P.J. Walker: Generating NFL interest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks, Cardinals and Broncos have all contacted the XFL's Houston Roughnecks to ask about Walker, Mark Berman of FOX 26 reports.

Walker and wide receiver Cam Phillips were the big stars of the XFL, leading Houston to a 5-0 record before the rest of the season was suspended. Walker led the league in passing yards (1,338) and touchdowns (15), completing 64.7 percent of his throws while tossing just four interceptions. He previously spent time with the Colts' practice squad in 2017, 2018 and 2019, never quite managing to secure the No. 2 quarterback job. It sounds like it won't be long before he gets another shot in the NFL.

Phillip Walker: Remains with Indy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed with the Colts' practice squad Sunday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Walker was waived Saturday after a rough preseason in which he completed 32 of 64 passes for 349 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions. The 24-year-old was moved on and off the practice squad throughout the 2018 season.

Phillip Walker: Cut by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was cut by the Colts on Saturday, Jim Ayello of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Walker was unable to capitalize on the opportunity of securing the roster spot opened up by Andrew Luck's abrupt retirement, completing only 50 percent of his passes this preseason. With Chad Kelly suspended for the first two games of the regular season, it seems increasingly likely the Colts will acquire another quarterback before Week 1 to back up starter Jacoby Brissett.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Struggles in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker completed eight of 16 passes for 90 yards and added 10 yards on three rushing attempts in Thursday's preseason finale against the Bengals.

Walker was outplayed by Chad Kelly, who also got the start in this one. While it appears Walker will be relegated to a third-string role when Kelly returns from his two-game suspension, Walker should open the season as Jacoby Brissett's backup while Kelly sits out the first two weeks. However, the Colts may try to acquire a veteran backup before Week 1 with Walker's mediocre preseason performance.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Struggles again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was 6-of-13 passing for 65 yards with an interception and also lost a fumble in Saturday's preseason loss to Chicago.

Walker struggled Saturday and hasn't been impressive this preseason. It was notable that Chad Kelly got the start Saturday with Jacoby Brissett sitting out as Walker may have fallen to third string. With Kelly suspended the first two games, Walker will likely be Indy's backup quarterback with the surprise retirement of Andrew Luck. However, the Colts could be in the market to boost their quarterback depth with the news of Luck's retirement, so Walker's spot on the roster could be in jeopardy.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Improves in second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was 10-of-17 passing for 109 yards with no interceptions or touchdowns in Saturday's preseason loss to Cleveland.

Walker improved from his subpar first preseason game, but he was outperformed by Chad Kelly again in the battle for the third-QB role. However, with Kelly set to miss the first two games of the regular season due to a suspension, Walker could begin the season as the third quarterback. The Colts may keep a third quarterback on the roster, which they usually don't do, given Andrew Luck's questionable status for the start of the season due to ankle and calf injuries.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Struggles in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker completed eight of 18 passes for 85 yards with an interception in Thursday's preseason loss at Buffalo.

Walker is battling Chad Kelly for the No. 3 QB role, and after one game, he was outplayed by Kelly. The Colts usually don't keep a third quarterback on the active roster, but that could change with Andrew Luck's lingering calf injury.

Phillip Walker: Signs with Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed with Indianapolis' practice squad Friday.

Walker now begins his fifth stint with the Colts' practice squad. The 23-year-old quarterback will serve as an emergency option behind starter Andrew Luck and backup Jacoby Brissett.

Phillip Walker: Let go from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was released from the Colts' practice squad Wednesday.

This marks the end of Walker's fourth stint with the Colts' practice squad. With Andrew Luck enjoying solid health this season and Jacoby Brissett locked in as the backup, Walker was primarily thought of as an emergency option. Walker could find his way back to the Colts' practice squad if the team promotes other members to the active roster at a later time.

Phillip Walker: Rejoins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed with Indianapolis' practice squad Friday.

Walker was previously released from the Colts' practice squad Oct. 23. The 23-year-old also participated in Indianapolis' offseason program and training camp this summer, before being waived prior to final cuts. With Jacoby Brissett is locked in as Andrew Luck's backup, Walker is unlikely to find a role as anything more than an emergency option this season.

Phillip Walker: Released from Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was released from the Colts' practice squad Tuesday, according to the Colts' official site.

Walker has had three separate stints on the Colts' practice squad, including participation in the team's offseason program and training camp this summer before being waived during final cuts. If the Colts decide to promote other practice squad members to the active roster, there's a good chance Walker could find himself back in Indianapolis.

Phillip Walker: Joins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed with Indianapolis' practice squad Saturday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

Walker was cut by the Colts to begin the regular season. With Jacoby Brissett being the only backup on the Colts' active roster behind Andrew Luck, Walker would be a strong candidate for promotion were either quarterback to miss any time.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Let go by Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was cut by the Colts on Saturday, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.

The Colts will go with just Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett on the roster, which is a little risky considering Luck missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. Walker will likely be signed to the practice squad.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Sharp in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was 5-of-8 passing for 88 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's win over Seattle.

Walker is battling Brad Kaaya for the third-string quaterback role. However, it's not clear if the Colts will keep three quarterbacks on the roster if Andrew Luck looks fully healthy. Jacoby Brissett is set as Luck's backup.

Colts' Phillip Walker: Signs with Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.

Walker was a member of the Colts' practice squad for the entire 2017 season after being waived during final roster cuts in September. The former Temple standout likely will get the opportunity to compete for No. 2 or 3 quarterback duties if he remains on the roster through training camp this summer.

Phillip Walker: Joins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker signed with the Colts' practice squad, Jason Spells of NBC WTHR reports.

Walker was an undrafted rookie who became a long shot to join the Colts' final roster after they traded for Jacob Brissett to serve as their third quarterback. Walker will stick around the organization to essentially serve as the No. 4 option.

August 20, 2017 11:20 AM
Colts' Phillip Walker: Lackluster second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was just five of eight for 33 yards passing in Saturday's preseason loss at Dallas.

Walker moved up to No. 3 on the QB depth chart before last week's preseason game, but may fall back to the No. 4 spot after he didn't do much and Stephen Morris played well. With Scott Tolzien struggling in the preseason and Andrew Luck still out with a shoulder injury, it's possible any of the Indianapolis quarterbacks could figure into the mix early in the regular season.
