Returns to Arizona

Muhammad signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Muhammad spent time on the Cardinals' practice squad earlier this season before moving to the Vikings' practice squad for the final few weeks of the year. The running back now has an opportunity to learn and grow a system he has only spent a month in prior.

Signs with Vikings

The Vikings signed Muhammad to the practice squad Monday.

Analysis: The Titans selected Muhammad in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but he has yet to play in an NFL game. He's the only running back on the team's practice squad, so he'll likely be called up if there are any injuries in the active roster's backfield.

Let go by Arizona

Muhammad was cut from the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old joined Arizona's practice squad in late October but is now in search of a new team. Muhammad has yet to make his NFL debut since being drafted during the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Tennessee.

Heading to desert

Muhammad signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was waived by the Broncos over the summer but will now provide backfield depth for the Cardinals with Kenyan Drake (ankle) sidelined. Muhammad has spent time on Tennessee's and Denver's practice squads and is still looking to make his NFL debut.

Waived by Broncos

The Broncos waived Muhammad on Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Despite spending the 2019 season on the Broncos' practice squad, Muhammad wasn't able to stick with the team for 2020. The 2017 seventh-round pick still hasn't made his NFL debut since initially being selected by the Titans.

Remains with Denver

Muhammad signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old spent the 2019 campaign on Denver's practice squad and stick with the team for the start of the offseason. Muhammad has yet to make his NFL debut since being drafted in the seventh round by the Titans in 2017.

Lands on Broncos' practice squad

Muhammad signed with Denver's practice squad Monday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Muhammad has been a regular on practice squads so far in his two seasons in the league and has yet to see action in a regular-season game. Over four seasons at Cal, the 23-year-old rushed 359 times for 2,073 yards (5.8 YPC) and 11 touchdowns while catching 55 passes for an additional 571 yards and three scores.

Let go by Broncos

Muhammad was waived by the Broncos on Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: Muhammad was going to have to make an impact at training camp in order to jump the depth ahead of him, but was ultimately unable to do so. The 24-year-old has been a practice squad regular throughout his first two seasons in the league and appears on track to do so again.

Team-high rushing tally

Muhammad rushed 11 times for 70 yards and brought in one of three targets for six yards in the Broncos' 20-7 preseason win over the Cardinals on Thursday. He also fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense.

Analysis: Muhammad's final line appeared significantly more efficient than the one he'd generated during last Saturday's loss to the Rams, as a game-long 47-yard scamper significantly boosted his numbers. The 2017 seventh-round pick is battling Devontae Jackson for a possible No. 4 running back role, and with the latter also having performed well Thursday, it will be interesting to see which of the two garners a final roster spot.

Aug 29, 2019 9:46 PM EST

Garners 45 total yards in loss

Muhammad (undisclosed) rushed 10 times for 30 yards and brought in both of his targets for 15 yards in the Broncos' 10-6 preseason loss to the Rams on Saturday.

Analysis: Muhammad is battling for a reserve running back role with veteran Theo Riddick (shoulder) projected to miss the first several weeks of the regular season. He made a decent case for himself Saturday, with primary competition Devontae Jackson logging just four carries for 11 yards and two receptions for three yards. The fact Muhammad paced the Broncos backfield in carries was a good sign, although his inefficiency with those opportunities was a blemish on his night. Muhammad will have one more chance to make his case when the Broncos close out the preseason against the Cardinals next Thursday.

Aug 24, 2019 9:40 PM EST

Not practicing

Muhammad (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: It's unclear whether Muhammad will be available for the team's third preseason game Monday against the 49ers, but more information regarding his status should arrive closer to the contest.

Takes step back in Seattle

Muhammad lost four yards on three carries, gained 10 yards on two catches, and had a 24-yard kick return during Thursday's 22-14 loss to Seattle.

Analysis: After being one of the stars of the Hall of Fame game, Muhammad struggled to find room against Seattle. The Broncos' top three backs seem to be Phillip Lindsay, Royce Freeman, and Theo Riddick. It's possible that the team keeps a fourth -- mostly for special teams purposes. If that proves to be the case, Muhammad has less experience than Devontae Booker, but Muhammad has looked better in the preseason, with two returns for 48 yards as compared to Booker's single return for 12 yards.

Aug 10, 2019 2:12 PM EST

Shines with 74 total yards

Muhammad rushed seven times for 50 yards and a touchdown, brought in four of five targets for 24 yards and added one kickoff return for 24 yards in the Broncos' 14-10 preseason win over the Falcons on Thursday.

Analysis: Muhammad has reportedly been making a strong impression in camp, so his ability to immediately transfer that over to preseason is certainly a notable feat for the 2017 seventh-round pick. Muhammad ended up leading the Broncos in both rushing and receiving yards, while also pacing the squad in receptions. Muhammad's ability to play special teams naturally ups his chances of securing a roster spot, but he still faces a formidable challenge, especially after the signing of veteran Theo Riddick on Thursday.

Shows burst in camp

Though he faces an uphill battle to make the roster, Muhammad has impressed in camp, Cecil Lammey of 104.3 the Fan reports.

Analysis: Muhammad has bounced around a bit since being drafted in the seventh round by the Titans in 2017 and has yet to record a touch in the NFL. Though the Broncos have a couple of talented young backs and Muhammad -- at 175 pounds -- is even smaller than Phillip Lindsay, the Cal product boasts 4.34-forty speed and amassed 2,644 yards from scrimmage in college. As Lammey notes, a quick burst in the backfield alone is likely not enough to unseat Devontae Booker or beat out fellow youngster Devontae Jackson. Emerging as a quality kick returner -- a spot in which he averaged over 22 yards per return in college -- could, however, make all the difference.

Jul 22, 2019 5:36 PM EST

Signs with Broncos

Muhammad signed a reserve/future contract with the Broncos on Monday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

Analysis: Muhammad was a 2017 seventh-round pick by the Titans but failed to make the 53-man roster. He then signed on with the Patriots last offseason, but was once again cut before the regular season began.

Jan 1, 2019 7:42 PM EST

Released by New England

Muhammad was waived by the Patriots on Friday, Doug Kyed of reports.

Analysis: Muhammad was a seventh-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and spent less than a week with the Patriots. Yet to make his NFL debut, the 23-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Aug 31, 2018 1:52 PM EST

Inks deal with Pats

Muhammad signed with the Patriots on Monday, Doug Kyed of reports.

Analysis: Muhammad most recently was a member of the Titans. At 23-years old, Muhammad possesses friendly upside but could wind up on the outside looking in during 53-man roster cut downs.
