  • Darrius Shepherd: Cut from practice squad

    Shepherd has been let go from the Broncos' practice squad, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Shepherd joined Denver as an undrafted free agent in early August. He failed to earn a spot on its 53-man roster during final cuts but subsequently reverted to the practice squad. He has seemingly not showed enough to hang on to a spot and will now be free to look for a new opportunity.

    Shepherd's signing comes a day after the Broncos placed Tim Patrick (knee) on IR. The former last saw NFL action in 2020 with the Packers, making five catches on eight targets for 46 yards in eight contests. Last season, he bounced around between the Steelers, Vikings, Cardinals and Chiefs' practice squads, then spent the summer playing with the New Jersey Generals of the USFL.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Chopped from practice squad

    Shepherd was cut from the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday.

    The 26-year-old was signed to the team's practice squad Friday, but with fellow wide receiver Trishton Jackson (illness) returning from the COVID-19 list, it appears like the team no longer needs Shepherd's services. Shepherd will now look for another opportunity to prove himself elsewhere.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Heads to desert

    Shepherd was signed to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Fails to make roster in Kansas City

    Shepherd was waived by the Chiefs on Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The third-year wide receiver spent the last two years with the Packers getting work as a returner, tallying 374 return yards. The Chiefs' special teams coordinator called Shepherd a sure-handed returner, so he might be brought back as a practice squad member or signed by a different team that is desperate for a kick returner.

  • Chiefs' Darrius Shepherd: Picked up by Chiefs

    Shepherd has been signed by the Chiefs, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

    Shepherd was a tryout participant during Kansas City's minicamp and has ultimately earned a spot on the roster. He spent the previous two seasons in Green Bay, where he was primarily utilized as a kick returner.

  • Darrius Shepherd: Waived by Packers

    Shepherd was released by the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    With Allen Lazard (core) now healthy, Shepherd simply did not have an opportunity to do much from an offensive perspective, reinforced by the two snaps he played in Sunday's game against the Bears. The fact Shepherd was also dreadful as a special teams player certainly didn't help, as the 25-year-old only averaged 20.6 yards per kick return across 11 attempts, also coughing up a critical fumble in a pivotal loss to the Colts two weeks ago. It's possible the depth wideout could return to the team's practice squad should he pass through waivers.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Active Sunday

    Shepherd (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

    Shepherd was a full practice participant the last two days of the week, so it's not much of a surprise he's suiting up Sunday. The 25-year-old should fill a depth role with the receiving corps back to full strength.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Officially questionable for Sunday

    Shepherd (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Shepherd practiced without limitations the last two days, but the Packers apparently want to evaluate his shoulder over the weekend before making a final decision on his status. Even if he's given a clean bill of health, however, Shepherd could end up as a healthy scratch if both Allen Lazard (core) and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) play.

  • Packers' Darrius Shepherd: Back to full practice

    Shepherd (shoulder) logged a full practice session Thursday.

    Shepherd was inactive for Green Bay's Week 10 matchup against the Jaguars, but improvement from limited to full practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday bodes well for his status. The North Dakota State product has recorded five receptions for 46 yards over six appearances this year, also making an impact on special teams with four kick-return attempts for a total of 89 yards and one punt return for six yards.
