Ozigbo was cut from the Bronco's practice squad Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo appeared in four games for the Broncos this season, earning three carries for four yards, while also catching his only target for three yards. The 26-year-old will now work to earn an opportunity elsewhere.

Ozigbo reverted to Denver's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Ozigbo was elevated from the practice squad for the third time this season to help fill in for the Broncos' depleted running backs corps Sunday versus Arizona. The 26-year-old still played just five of his 18 snaps on offense during this win, logging two carries for two yards. Ozigbo has now logged four touches for seven yards across four games this season, though he'll need to be re-added to the active roster to suit up again for Denver this season.

Denver elevated Ozigbo from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus Arizona, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo appears to be poised to make his fourth appearance of the season Sunday as Denver deals with a host of injuries in its running back room. The 26-year-old tailback has one carry for two yards and one catch for three yards through three games in 2022.
Dec 17, 2022 2:06 PM EST
The Broncos re-signed Ozigbo to the practice squad Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo was signed off the practice squad ahead of Sunday's loss to the Panthers, but he was limited to one reception on his lone target while playing four offensive snaps. Denver also elevated the 26-year-old running back for Weeks 5 and 8, so he's still eligible for more game-day activation while on the team's practice squad this season. However, Ozigbo will likely see limited usage moving forward after the Broncos also designated running back Mike Boone (ankle) to return from IR on Wednesday.
Nov 30, 2022 7:40 PM EST
The Broncos waived Ozigbo on Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo has spent time on and off Denver's practice squad this season, and he was added to the team's active roster Saturday. The 26-year-old then caught his lone target while playing four offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers as the No. 3 running back behind Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack. Ozigbo was also elevated from the Broncos' practice squad for two games earlier this season, and he'll likely re-join this unit if he's unable to secure a spot with an active roster elsewhere.
Nov 28, 2022 4:25 PM EST
Ozigbo caught his only target for three yards in Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Ozigbo failed to record a single rush Sunday while operating as the Bronco's No. 3 running back behind Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack. Murray handled the lion's share of work out of the backfield, leading the way in carries and yards, while Mack and Ozigbo Mack played six and four offensive snaps, respectively. With Mike Boone (ankle) possibly returning from injured reserve in Week 13, Ozigbo could potentially be heading back to the practice squad. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old will remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos visit the Ravens in Week 13.

The Broncos elevated Ozigbo from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Analysis: This move comes as no surprise since Denver head coach Nathaniel Hackett confirmed Friday that Ozigbo would be elevated for the team's Week 12 contest against Carolina. The Broncos are suddenly thin at running back after Melvin Gordon was waived Monday and Chase Edmonds (ankle) was placed on IR on Tuesday, though Ozigbo may not see much work behind Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack. This is the third week this season that Ozigbo will be active for Denver, but so far he's logged only two offensive snaps and converted one carry into two yards.
Nov 26, 2022 4:26 PM EST
Coach Nathaniel Hackett confirmed Friday that Denver intends to elevate Ozigbo from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo will join Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack in a new-look Denver backfield that's without Chase Edmonds (ankle) and the recently released Melvin Gordon. Murray's expected to see the majority of playing time, though the 26-year-old Ozigbo will offer some fresh legs.
Nov 25, 2022 12:42 PM EST
Ozigbo will likely be elevated from Denver's practice squad and be a part of the running back rotation in Week12, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo is currently on the Broncos' practice squad, but the veteran running back will likely be called up and active for a Week 12 matchup against the Panthers. The 26-year-old would be in line to handle duties behind presumed starter Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack. Ozigbo's opportunity in Denver's backfield comes on the heels of Melvin Gordon being waived by the Broncos on Monday. Recent trade acquisition Chase Edmonds is also slated to miss time with a high right-ankle sprain. Despite head coach Nathaniel Hackett's claim that Ozigbo will be a part of the running back rotation in Week 12, he will be extremely difficult to trust for fantasy purposes with limited opportunities on a struggling offense.

The Broncos re-signed Ozigbo to their practice squad Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo was just let go by Denver on Tuesday following the team's recent acquisition of Chase Edmonds via trade from the Dolphins. However, the 225-pounder was brought back to the Broncos' practice squad Thursday, where he'll provide an emergency depth option should any of the team's RBs miss time. Ozigbo has already been elevated to Denver's active roster twice so far in 2022, so he'll have one more chance for a promotion this season until the team will be forced to sign him to the active roster.
Nov 3, 2022 3:20 PM EST
The Broncos waived Ozigbo on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo's time in Denver came to an abrupt end Tuesday, after the team brought in running back Chase Edmonds via trade from the Dolphins earlier in the day. The 26-year-old saw just one carry across two games played in 2022 for the Broncos, but he'll now search elsewhere for a shot at more playing time this season.
Nov 1, 2022 4:37 PM EST
Denver signed Ozigbo from its practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo was elevated from the practice squad for Week 5 and played primarily on special teams, garnering one rush attempt for two yards across two offensive snaps. With Mike Boone (ankle) and Javonte Williams (knee) on IR, Ozigbo figures to operate as a depth option behind Melvin Gordon, Latavius Murray and Marlon Mack.
Oct 29, 2022 9:17 PM EST
Ozigbo reverted to the Broncos' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Ozigbo played primarily on special teams during Thursday's loss to the Colts, logging just one rush for two yards across two offensive snaps. With Javonte Williams (knee) out for the season, Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone are expected to split the majority of the running-back duties, though recently sidelined Latavius Murray also figures to compete for touches once he gets fully acclimated to his new squad.
Oct 7, 2022 3:17 PM EST
The Broncos have elevated Ozigbo from their practice squad ahead of Thursday night's game against the Colts, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: With Javonte Williams (knee) on IR, Ozigbo will provide the Broncos with some added Week 5 backfield depth behind Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone, while also providing the team with another special teams option. It remains to be seen how much he's involved in the team's offense Thursday though, with Gordon in line to handle lead duties against the Colts.
Oct 6, 2022 12:39 PM EST
Ozigbo joined the Broncos' practice squad Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo failed to make the team but didn't garner any interest on waivers after being waived Tuesday. He could be elevated to the main roster during the season if Denver needs reinforcements in the backfield.
Sep 1, 2022 9:19 AM EST
Ozigbo was waived by Denver on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo was claimed off waivers by the Broncos last week after being let go by the Saints a day before. He led Denver in rushing during Saturday's preseason matchup against the Vikings, logging 13 carries for 59 yards while securing all four of his targets for 24 yards. However, his performance wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the Broncos' 53-man roster.
Aug 30, 2022 3:17 PM EST
Ozigbo was claimed off waivers by the Broncos on Monday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo was able to find a new home quickly after he was waived by the Saints on Sunday. The 25-year-old has bounced around a bit over the last several months, but he'll work to make the most of his new opportunity in Denver.
Aug 22, 2022 2:46 PM EST
Ozigbo was waived by the Saints on Sunday, John Sigler of Saints WIre reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo had initially signed with New England in January, but was waived May 2, before re-joining the Saints two weeks later. The 25-year old appeared in two games with New Orleans last season, while spending time with Jacksonville and the aforementioned Patriots, as well.
Aug 21, 2022 1:51 PM EST
Ozigbo signed with the Saints on Monday,
Analysis: Ozigbo was waived by the Patriots on May 2 and now will join the Saints, who originally signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska in 2019. Over the past four seasons Ozigbo has appeared in 21 games for the Jaguars and Saints, recording 11 carries for 31 yards.
May 16, 2022 5:46 PM EST
The Patriots are releasing Ozigbo, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Ozigbo's chances of securing a depth role in the Patriots' backfield took a hit when the team selected both Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris in the recent NFL Draft. The 25-year-old will now look to catch on with another team looking to bolster its running back corps.
