The Browns are re-signing LB Anthony Walker on a 1-year, $5 million deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's not a guaranteed-starter level of commitment, but it points to Walker likely remaining in the 2022 lineup. His 2021 playing time dipped later in the year after 2nd-round pick Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah emerged as a starter. Walker looks like a LB4-level IDP option for 2022 fantasy football drafts.

Browns LB Anthony Walker will miss today's game against the Ravens on the COVID list. Malcolm Smith is expected to start in his place. Smith will carry some IDP upside, but Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is the top play among Cleveland LBs.

The Browns have activated LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah off IR, where he missed the past 3 games with a high-ankle sprain. He's been added to the injury report as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. The fact that they activated him indicates the rookie will play, but we'd be hesitant to use him in IDP lineups in the 1st game back. JOK had elevated to tops among Cleveland LBs in playing time before his injury. We'll be curious to see whether/how soon he pushes Malcolm Smith aside and/or passes Anthony Walker.

The Browns are placing MLB Anthony Walker on IR with a hamstring strain. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Walker “should” be back in 3 weeks. Walker was the only full-timer at the position for Cleveland in Week 1. Rookie Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah ranked 2nd among the group in playing time but stayed on the field for just 38% of snaps. We’ll see how things sort out in Walker’s absence. JOK carries the most IDP upside, if he gets primary playing time

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that LB Anthony Walker is signing a 1-year, $3.5 million deal with the Browns. That's not necessarily starter money, but Walker should compete for starter-level playing time in a shaky and unproven Cleveland LB corps. Walker was a solid player for the Colts, though he's coming off his worst overall Pro Football Focus grade through 4 seasons (by far). Walker also ceded the #2 LB role to Bobby Okereke in 2020. We'll see how the Browns' group shakes out.

Colts LB Bobby Okereke (ankle) is active for today's game against the Raiders. He remained limited throughout the practice week, so Okereke is still a high-risk IDP option. His return, though, also adds risk to the playing time of LB Anthony Walker.

Colts LB Bobby Okereke (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Okereke put in limited practices all week after sitting out all of the previous 2 weeks. Even if he's active, though, Okreke will be a risky IDP option. If Okereke does return, he'll add risk to Anthony Walker. A healthy Okereke has been Indy's #2 LB over Walker this season.

Colts LB Anthony Walker (ribs) and S Khari Willis (ribs, shoulder) are active for today's game against the Titans. Neither is a high-level IDP option, but they're in play for deeper leagues. Walker should gain playing time with LB Bobby Okereke out (ankle).

The Colts have ruled LB Bobby Okereke (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Titans. LB Anthony Walker (ribs) and S Khari Willis (ribs, shoulder) are questionable. We'll update their status Sunday morning.

Colts LB Darius Leonard and DE Justin Houston carry no injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions. Leonard hasn't played since Week 4 because of a groin injury but put in a pair of full practices to close out the week. Houston played in Indy's last game but was clearly limited by a hip injury. That issue didn't even show up on this week's injury report, though. Both look ready for normal usage in IDP lineups. Leonard's return figures to lower the playing time for at least 1 of the Colts' other LBs. Anthony Walker sat 3rd in that line before Leonard went down.

Colts LB Anthony Walker (ankle) is active for today's game against the Browns. He'll carry some re-injury risk but also tackle upside against the run-favoring Cleveland offense.

The Colts have ruled LB Darius Leonard (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Browns. LB Anthony Walker is questionable with an ankle injury that arose during the practice week. He sat out Thursday before putting in a limited Friday. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon. Colts LB Bobby Okereke -- who opened the week not practicing because of a thumb injury -- was off the injury report by the end of the week after full workouts Thursday and Friday. He's the best IDP bet among Colts LBs this week.

Colts LB Bobby Okereke underwent thumb surgery Monday for an injury suffered in Sunday's win over the Bears. We'll see whether he can rebound in time to play against the Browns this Sunday. If Okereke doesn't go, Indy will choose among Zaire Franklin, Jordan Glasgow and E.J. Speed to fill in. The crowd in contention makes it an IDP situation worth steering away from. This injury plus Darius Leonard's groin injury add value to LB Anthony Walker on waivers. We'll keep an eye on practice reports for Colts LBs this week.

Colts LB Darius Leonard left in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Bears with a groin injury and did not return. We'll see about his status heading into Week 5. Anthony Walker and Bobby Okereke finished out the Week 4 contest as the full-time LBs, tallying 11 and 8 tackles, respectively. Each would be in play for IDP lineups if Leonard misses further time.

The Colts have ruled LB Darius Leonard (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It'll be his 3rd straight game missed. LB Anthony Walker (shoulder) is also questionable for the game. Walker didn't miss any practice this week and wasn't even listed on the injury report until Friday -- when he put in a full workout. We'd have to bet on him playing, but the status obviously means we'll need to check the Sunday night inactives.
