DE - HOU - IR
The Denver Broncos are placing DE DeMarcus Walker on short-term IR with a calf injury.
Walker is eligible to return Week 6. With injuries to A.J. Bouye, Von Miller, and Mark Barron, this Denver defense is starting to get pretty thin. They have a tough matchup this week at home against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Fantasy managers might want to check the waiver wire for a streamer if Denver is your D/ST.
DeMarcus Walker recorded his first career multi-sack game, logging three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, two TFLs, two QB hits, and two sacks in a 16-0 win over the Titans.
Walker stepped up in the absence of star pass rusher Bradley Chubb, and he will have to continue to do so with Chubb out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury. He may be a name to monitor with this prime opportunity to succeed opposite of Von Miller.
