Elevated for Saturday

DeValve was promoted to Arizona's active roster from the practice squad Friday, Kevin Zimmerman of reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old joined the Cardinals' practice squad in late November, and this will be his third elevation to the active roster since joining the organization. DeValve went without a target in his two previous appearances this season, but he could be more involved Saturday with Dan Arnold (back), Maxx Williams (ankle) and Darrell Daniels (hamstring) all questionable.

Sent back to practice squad

DeValve reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, Mason Kern of reports.

Analysis: DeValve contributed a fumble recovery and one tackle over 27 offensive snaps and 12 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 26-7 triumph over the Giants. The 27-year-old has suited up for Arizona in back-to-back games after being jettisoned from Carolina's practice squad Nov. 17.

Elevated from practice squad

DeValve was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: After appearing in his first NFL game of the season last week against the Rams, DeValve will return to Arizona's 53-man roster for Sunday. While the tight end didn't see any targets, he did manage to play in two offensive snaps and 13 special-teams snaps. DeValve will likely not have a significant role again during Sunday's game as Maxx Williams and Dan Arnold serve as the primary tight ends.

Back down to practice squad

DeValve reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 27-year-old played two offensive snaps and 13 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Rams while Dan Arnold stole the show at tight end with 61 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The appearance marked DeValve's first of the 2020 campaign, but now he will shuffle back to Arizona's practice squad as the team prepares to host the Giants in Week 14.

Shuffles to active roster

The Cardinals elevated DeValve to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: DeValve looks poised to suit up with his third team in three years. Over 12 games with the Jaguars last season, DeValve posted a 12-140-0 line. He'll slot in as the No. 3 tight end behind Maxx Williams and Dan Arnold.

Joins Arizona's practice squad

The Cardinals signed DeValve to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: DeValve will provide Arizona with emergency tight end depth. The 27-year-old spent time on the Panthers' practice squad earlier this month, but he hasn't yet suited up for game-action in 2020.

Let go by Carolina

The Panthers cut DeValve from the practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: DeValve didn't make a team to start the year, but he earned an opportunity with the Panthers earlier this month. The 27-year-old tight end's tryout lasted less than two weeks before coming to an end. He last played for the Jaguars in 2019 when he caught 12 of 18 targets for 140 yards, and he'll look to add run-blocking depth elsewhere.

Finds new home

DeValve (toe) inked a contract with Carolina's practice squad Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: DeValve was let go by the Panthers in the offseason just before he underwent surgery to repair a tendon and to remove a cyst in one of his toes. Now back in Carolina, he'll return to provide depth at tight end, as he caught 12 passes for 140 yards across 12 games last season for Jacksonville.

Facing 10-to-12 week recovery

DeValve underwent surgery to repair a tendon and remove a cyst in one of his toes last week and will be sidelined for 10-to-12 weeks, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old was waived by the Panthers last week with an unspecified non-football injury, which is now known to be his toe issues. DeValve appeared in 12 games for Jacksonville last season and caught 12 passes for 140 yards. He should be ready for game action in September, assuming he latches on with a new team.

Jun 10, 2020 2:29 PM EST

Released by Panthers

The Panthers cut ties with DeValve on Wednesday citing a non-football injury, Alaina Gerzenerg of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: DeValve's stay with the Panthers was a brief one, parting ways with the team just over two months after the club signed him to a deal. He's set to become a free agent and should be eligible to look for a backup job with another club.

Jun 3, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Lands in Carolina

DeValve agreed to terms Friday on a contract with the Panthers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: DeValve spent the 2019 campaign playing a depth role in Jacksonville's tight end room, hauling in 12 passes for 140 yards across 12 games. He'll now compete with Ian Thomas, Chris Manhertz and Temarrick Hemingway for snaps during the 2020 season. DeValve also stands to handle a role on special teams.

One catch in finale

DeValve caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Colts.

Analysis: The 26-year-old ended up playing four fewer snaps than No. 3 tight end Ben Koyack -- Nick O'Leary (shoulder) was inactive -- despite delivering a season-high 45 yards Week 16. DeValve posted 12 catches for 140 yards and zero touchdowns in 12 games during his first season in Jacksonville. The role reduction in the season finale may be an indication the Jaguars will allow DeValve to hit free agency in March and pursue other opportunities.

Delivers season-best yardage

DeValve caught three of six targets for 45 yards during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: DeValve was much more involved in his second game back from the oblique injury, but the season-high six targets still didn't translate into significant yardage. The 26-year-old has 11 receptions for 136 yards in six starts for the Jaguars.

Dec 23, 2019 11:59 AM EST

Catches two passes in return

DeValve caught both targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: DeValve missed the previous four games with an oblique injury, but he returned Week 15 and led the Jaguars' tight ends with 29 offensive snaps. The 26-year-old should work as the team's No. 1 tight end for the closing stretch of the season, assuming he stays healthy.

Dec 16, 2019 8:59 PM EST

Shakes off injury

DeValve (oblique) practiced without limitations Wednesday.

Analysis: DeValve hasn't played since Week 9, but he appears to be good to go moving forward. The 26-year-old tight end generated six receptions for 68 yards over nine games preceding his injury, and he's expected to continue a run-blocking role Sunday against the Raiders.

Dec 11, 2019 2:01 PM EST

Out Week 14

DeValve (oblique) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: DeValve was able to return to practice as a limited participant Friday, but he still wasn't expected to play this week. Nick O'Leary should work as Jacksonville's top option at tight end once again Week 14.

Dec 8, 2019 11:38 AM EST

Doubtful to play Week 14

The Jaguars list DeValve (oblique) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: With DeValve's oblique injury still preventing him from practicing, he looks on pace to miss his fourth consecutive contest this weekend. Expect Nick O'Leary to operate as the Jaguars' top pass-catching tight end for the third straight week.

Dec 6, 2019 10:40 AM EST

Still not practicing

DeValve (oblique) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old missed the last three games due to the oblique injury, and there's been no indication of when he may be able to retake the field. Nick O'Leary should continue to work as Jacksonville's top tight end while DeValve remains sidelined.

Dec 4, 2019 4:16 PM EST

Missing third straight game

The Jaguars have ruled DeValve (oblique) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: DeValve failed to practice in any fashion this week, which effectively ended any chance he had of returning from a two-game absence. Nick O'Leary should work as the Jaguars' primary pass-catching tight end in Week 13 after hauling in all four of his targets for 36 yards in his team debut last week against the Titans.

Nov 29, 2019 11:24 AM EST

Remains out Wednesday

DeValve (oblique) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: DeValve missed the last two games due to the oblique injury, and there's been no indication of when he'll be ready to return. The 26-year-old will need to return to practice within the next couple days to have a chance of playing this weekend.
