Bears' Michael Ojemudia: Plays primarily on special teams
Ojemudia didn't post a tackle in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18 and ended the season with no statistics over two games played.
Ojemudia was signed by the Bears ahead of Week 17 after spending time with the Broncos earlier in the season. While with Denver, he played two defensive snaps and 23 snaps on special teams. He's under contract with the team through the 2023 season, and he'll likely compete for a roster spot in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Michael Ojemudia: Lands in Chicago
The Bears have claimed Ojemudia off waivers, Larry Mayer of the team's official website reports.
Ojemudia has been with the Broncos since being drafted in 2020 in the third-round of the NFL Draft. He had played in just three games with them this season before ultimately getting waived earlier this week. The third-year cornerback will now add depth to Chicago's secondary.... See More ...

Michael Ojemudia: Done in Denver
The Broncos waived Ojemudia on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
The 2020 third-rounder has dealt with injuries almost constantly since his rookie season, and his only having played two defensive snaps this year probably factored into Denver's decision to part ways with him. Presuming he's not claimed by another team during the current waiver period, Ojemudia is set to become an unrestricted free agent.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Gets activated
Ojemudia (elbow) was returned to the active roster Monday.
Ojemudia suffered a dislocated elbow during a preseason contest and will be making his season debut Monday night. His return should be a boost to the Broncos' secondary.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Hoping to be available by Monday
Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said that he hopes to have Ojemudia (elbow) on the team's active roster and off injured reserve by Monday night's contest versus the Chargers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Ojemudia was placed on IR after suffering a dislocated elbow in August, and he's since missed the team's first first five games as a result. If the 200-pound cornerback is indeed elevated to Denver's active roster before Monday night's matchup against the Chargers, he'll likely serve as a depth piece in the Broncos' secondary behind Patrick Surtain, K'Waun Williams (wrist) and Damarri Mathis (knee)....

Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Back at practice
Ojemudia (elbow) was designated to return from IR on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Ojemudia was able to practice with the team Tuesday as a result, and he could return to play as soon as Monday against the Chargers. However, he will need to be activated to the 53-man roster before then, which the team now has three weeks to do.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Placed on IR
The Broncos placed Ojemudia (elbow) on injured reserve Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Ojemudia made the initial 53-man roster, but he'll land on IR and miss at least the first four games of the regular season. The 2020 third-round pick was jockeying for a depth role in Denver's competitive secondary before he dislocated his elbow in mid-August.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Suffers elbow injury
Ojemudia left the game with an elbow injury during Denver's 42-15 preseason loss at Buffalo on Saturday.
It's unclear how severe the injury is, but more should be known upon another update from the team. The 24-year-old corner also left last week's preseason game versus Dallas prematurely to enter concussion protocol, and he missed 15 games due to a hamstring injury last season. Until he's ready to play again, K'Waun Williams and Damarri Mathis should see increased reps.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Dislocates elbow
Ojemudia suffered a dislocated elbow Saturday, Andrew Mason of 104.3 The Fan reports.
It's a really tough break for Ojemudia, who had been jockeying for depth chart positioning in an uber-competitive Broncos defensive backfield. He should still be in line to see the field in some capacity this season once he has fully recovered from his injury, but in the meantime, K'Waun Williams and Damarri Mathis will likely see most of Denver's reps at corner behind Patrick Surtain and Ronald Darby....

Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Cleared of concussion
Ojemudia (concussion protocol) was cleared to return to Saturday's preseason game against Dallas.
Ojemudia seems to have avoided any serious issues after he exited Saturday's exhibition to be evaluated for a potential concussion. The 24-year-old cornerback missed 15 games due to a hamstring injury last season, but he should play a prominent role in Denver's secondary if he can stay healthy during this coming regular season....

Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Undergoing concussion evaluation
Ojemudia (head) left Saturday' preseason game against the Cowboys to be evaluated for a possible concussion.
Ojemudia is questionable to return to Saturday' exhibition after suffering a head injury. The 2020 third-round pick recorded 62 tackles and six passes defended over 16 games as a rookie, but he was sidelined for all but two weeks while dealing with a hamstring injury last season. When healthy, Ojemudia figures to compete with Damarri Mathis and Blessuan Austin for a primary depth role in Denver's secondary this preseason.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Activated from IR
Ojemudia (hamstring) was activated from IR on Saturday.
Ojemudia was injured during the preseason and it was expected his hamstring was more of a week-to-week issue, but this Sunday will be his first chance to play in 2021. Assuming the second-year pro is active Sunday against the Lions, he'll likely provide some depth in the secondary and snaps on special teams.... See More ... See Less
