  • Raiders' Austin Walter: Lands on injured reserve

    Walter (undisclosed) was placed on IR on Thursday.

    Walter was working to earn a depth role in the Raiders' backfield after joining the team on a reserve/future deal in January. The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2021 with the Jets, and now he'll likely have to wait a while longer. Unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team, Walter will be forced to miss the entirety of the 2023 campaign.

  • Raiders' Austin Walter: Extended new deal by Las Vegas

    The Raiders signed Walter to a reserve/future contract Monday.

    Walter first joined up with Las Vegas in July and spent the preseason with the team. However, the 5-foot-8 running back never managed to crack the team's final 53-man roster, as he spent the entirety of the 2022 campaign on the practice squad. Walter logged 26 carries for 101 yards and a touchdown over four games with the Jets in 2021, and he'll look to compete for an active roster spot heading into the 2023 season.

  • Austin Walter: Inks deal with practice squad

    The Raiders signed Walter to their practice squad Wednesday.

    Walter was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday as part of the team's final roster cuts, but he'll join the organization's practice squad a day later. The 26-year-old has appeared in nine games between the Giants, 49ers and Jets over the last three seasons.

  • Austin Walter: Waived by Raiders

    Las Vegas waived Walter on Tuesday.

    No surprise here, as Walter was considered a long shot to make it through final roster cuts, as he was competing against a plethora of running backs. The journeyman has also spent time with the Jets, 49ers and Giants over the previous three seasons and will now have to look for another landing spot.

  • Raiders' Austin Walter: Signs with Raiders

    Las Vegas signed Walter on Friday.

    Walter gets another chance to make an impression on an NFL team after the Jets waived him back in May. He'll be hard-pressed to make the 53-man roster in a Raiders running back room that already features Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, Brandon Bolden and 2022 fourth-round pick Zamir White.

  • Austin Walter: Waived by Jets

    The Jets waived Walter on Friday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Walter finished the 2021 campaign with 26 rushes for 101 yards and a touchdown while catching two of three targets for nine yards across four appearances. It's possible New York opts to bring the 25-year-old back on its practice squad, but its running back room is now crowed with the addition of second-round pick Breece Hall.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Gets 28 touches in 2021

    Walter rushed 26 times for 101 yards and a touchdown while catching two of three targets for nine yards over four appearances in 2021.

    Walter spent most of the season on the Jets' practice squad but was signed to the 53-man roster down the stretch after the team battled some injuries in the backfield. The 25-year-old Rice product has another year left on his contract with the Jets, but Walter will be fighting an uphill battle to make the roster in camp.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Inactive in Week 18

    Walter is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

    As is La'Mical Perine, which sets the stage for Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson to handle the Jets' backfield duties in Week 18.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Gets 14 carries in Week 17

    Walter rushed 14 times for 49 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 28-24 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Walter led the team in carries after Michael Carter (concussion) exited early, but Ty Johnson got the nod at the goal line in the third quarter and delivered a one-yard touchdown. If neither Carter nor Tevin Coleman (illness) plays in Week 18 against the Bills, Walter should retain a prominent role on the ground, though finding running room won't be easy against a stout Buffalo front.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Walter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

    Walter had two carries for 12 yards last week against Miami as the No. 3 tailback, but he's a healthy scratch for Week 16. Ty Johnson will take on that role Sunday with Michael Carter and Tevin Coleman set to lead the backfield once again.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Two carries in Week 15

    Walter rushed twice for 12 yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

    Walter barely saw the field, as Michael Carter (ankle) and Tevin Coleman split work in the Jets' backfield. As long as New York's top two running backs stay healthy, there won't be much work to go around for Walter, but each of the top two options has dealt with injuries this season; Carter just came off IR this week and Coleman missed last week's game due to a concussion.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Not on injury report

    Walter (illness) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Walter was active for last week's win over the Saints but didn't take the field due to an illness. However, it appears as though he'll be available Sunday against Miami. While the 25-year-old was expected to take on a key role against New Orleans, he's unlikely to see much playing time against the Dolphins since Tevin Coleman (concussion) and Michael Carter (ankle) are both expected to return to the field this week.

  • Jets' Austin Walter: Out for remainder of contest

    Walter is dealing with an illness and has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Saints, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    That explains why Walter, though listed as active, had not played a snap in a contest he seemed poised to play a key role in. With Tevin Coleman (concussion) already out, next up for the Jets' Week 14 backfield work is the duo of La'Mical Perine and Ty Johnson.
