Heading to Philly

Walker agreed to a deal with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was waived by the Jaguars with an injury settlement after at the end of training camp last year, and he never ended up seeing the field in 2020. Walker appeared in seven games for Jacksonville in 2019 and primarily worked as a returner, which is likely the role he'll compete for in Philadelphia.

Heads back to waivers

The Jaguars waived Walker (knee) with an injury settlement Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

Analysis: Walker played seven games for the Jaguars last season, but he couldn't stay healthy during training camp this year. He'll look to get healthy before seeking a special-teams role elsewhere.

Back to IR

Walker (knee) reverted to injured reserve Sunday, per the league's official transactions report.

Analysis: Walker went unclaimed after having been waived/injured Saturday. He appeared in seven games for Jacksonville as a special-teams asset in 2019.

Waived with injury tag

The Jaguars waived/injured Walker (knee) on Saturday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Walker played seven games in 2019 and mainly contributed as a returner, but he's battling a knee injury and couldn't crack the 53-man roster. He's expected to clear waivers and land on Jacksonville's injured reserve where he'll remain pending an injury settlement.

Moved to active roster

The Jaguars activated Walker off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday morning, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports

Analysis: Walker caught on with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie last year, starting off on the practice squad before getting promoted to the active roster in early November. He ended up playing in seven games, taking 18 kick returns for 411 yards (22.8 average), three punt returns for 13 yards and two catches for 15 yards. Walker will need to battle for a roster spot in the coming weeks.

Sent to COVID list

The Jaguars placed Walker (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

Analysis: As an undrafted rookie last season, Walker got some run with the 53-man roster starting Week 9, serving as the Jaguars' kick returner and hauling in two of three targets before hitting IR in late December due to a hamstring injury. His potential to make the final roster this season was touchy following the additions of Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson in the 2020 draft. With his placement on the COVID list, Walker has to pass the required testing protocol before he's able to take part in camp.

Long odds to crack roster

Walker (hamstring) will have an uphill battle to make Jacksonville's season-opening roster in training camp, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old appeared in seven games as a rookie UDFA last year and saw most of his action as a kick returner with 18 returns for 411 yards. The Jags return their top-four wideouts from 2019 and added Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson via the draft, so Walker seems likely to be competing for a spot on the practice squad.

Placed on IR

Walker (hamstring) was placed on IR by the Jaguars ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: Walker was already ruled out for the contest, so this move was just a formality that allowed the Jaguars to add running back Jeremy McNichols from the practice squad. The rookie receiver finished the season with a modest two catches for 15 yards.

Unavailable Week 17

Walker (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Analysis: Walker will miss the final game of the season after picking up the hamstring injury this week. Dede Westbrook could work as the Jaguars return man Week 17.

Dec 27, 2019 11:27 AM EST


Nursing hamstring issue

Walker (hamstring) is listed as a non-participant on Thursday's expected practice report.

Analysis: Walker serves the Jaguars as a key contributor on special-teams and a depth wideout. With DJ Chark (ankle) also nursing an injury, Jacksonville could be forced to rely on a new kick returner if Walker were forced to miss any time.
