Walker posted two tackles and a sack in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Playing on the fourth team in his seven-year career, Walker played a career-high 688 snaps, which was 258 more snaps than the next highest total. From a productivity standpoint, the veteran defensive end totaled 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Going into his age-29 season, Walker has two years remaining on his contract with the Bears. If he retains his role in the defense, Walker will be a low-ceiling IDP option.

Full go Thursday

Walker (shin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

The veteran defensive end popped up on Chicago's injury report Wednesday with a shin issue, but it seems as if he's already been able to move past it, as he was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Walker has had a solid season thus far, appearing in 14 games and logging 24 total tackles, 2.0 sacks and seven tackles for loss.

Nursing leg injury

Walker (leg) did not participate at practice Wednesday.

Walker played a season-high 52 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss at Cleveland, so it's not immediately clear when he picked up the leg issue. He'll probably need to manage a full practice Thursday or Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

First sack with Chicago

Walker tallied a sack and four tackles in the Bears' 40-20 win over the Commanders on Thursday.

Not only did Walker get his first sack of the season, but this was the first time he had more than two tackles in a game. He'll likely be a low-floor IDP with occasional upside games going forward.

Expected to start at defensive end

Walker is expected to be a key part of the revamped Chicago defense this season, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

After recording seven sacks last year, the Bears signed Walker in free agency. However, he doesn't project to be a team's primary pass rusher. Once the team added Yannick Ngakoue in free agency, that potentially puts Walker in a better situation with less attention spent on him by opposing offensive lines. This gives him a fair chance to have another productive season in the sack column.

Agrees to deal with busy Bears

Walker agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract with the Bears, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Walker racked up a career-high seven sacks in 2022 with the Titans. The Bears will be Walker's fourth team, as the 28-year-old defensive lineman spent four years in Denver and one apiece in Houston and Tennessee before cashing in on his breakout season with this contract.
