Free agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya announced his retirement from the NFL.
A seventh-round pick of the Rams in 2009, Ogbonnaya did well to last six years in the league. He averaged 4.5 YPC on 158 career carries and totaled four touchdowns. Ogbonnaya was last with the Giants, who released him in May. He also played for the Texans, Browns, and Panthers. Fri, Jun 19, 2015 11:40:00 AM

Giants released/waived RB Chris Ogbonnaya, LB James Davidson and S Thomas Gordon.

Ogbonnaya re-signed for a one-year, $770,000 contract in March, but is getting cut loose just two months later. The seven-year veteran rushed 14 times for 50 yards (3.6 YPC) for the Panthers last season, but didn't get the ball in two games for the G-Men. Ogbonnaya turned 29 earlier this month.

Giants will re-sign RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

Ogbonnaya is no lock to make the final roster as the Giants are stacked at running back. At best, he's currently fourth behind Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams. Nearing age 29, Ogbonnaya has played for five teams since breaking into the league in 2009.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 02:33:00 PM

Giants signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

It's a sign the G-Men are pessimistic about Rashad Jennings' (ankle) Week 14 status. Ogbonnaya appeared in five games for the Panthers earlier this season, rushing 14 times for 50 yards (3.6 YPC). Although the Giants are thin behind Jennings, Ogbonnaya won't be a fantasy consideration if New York's No. 1 runner can't go against the Titans.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 07:37:00 PM

Panthers waived RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

Carolina promoted DT Micanor Regis from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Ogbonnaya rushed for 50 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries across five games for the Panthers. He hadn't played in a few weeks.

Panthers re-signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya

Ogbonnaya was waived by the Panthers earlier this week. He'll provide depth behind Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams.
Wed, Nov 5, 2014 06:02:00 PM

Panthers waived RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

Ogbonnaya was signed just over a month ago, and rushed for 50 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries. He's no longer needed with Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams healthy, and Mike Tolbert (leg, short-term I.R.) nearing a return.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 06:27:00 PM

Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Seahawks.

Ogbonnaya had a scare during practice this week, but he's ready to pick up some of the slack behind starter Jonathan Stewart. DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Fozzy Whittaker (quad) are both inactive. The rest of the Panthers inactives: CB Bene' Benwikere, G Trai Turner, G Amini Silatolu, LB Chase Blackburn and WR Corey Brown.
Sun, Oct 26, 2014 11:44:00 AM

Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya was carted off the practice field with a groin injury on Friday.

He's listed as questionable after experiencing "stiffness" in the groin. The Panthers will use Jonathan Stewart and Darrin Reaves at tailback versus Seattle.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 01:06:00 PM

Chris Ogbonnaya rushed four times for 12 yards in Carolina's Week 7 loss to the Packers.

Ogbonnaya ran as Jonathan Stewart's clear backup in the absence of DeAngelo Williams (knee), but got out-touched 15-4. Even in the Panthers' chaotic backfield, Ogbonnaya is off the radar in re-draft leagues.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 06:50:00 PM

Chris Ogbonnaya rushed eight times for 24 yards and a score in the Panthers' Week 5 win over Chicago.

Ogbonnaya capped off the Panthers' game tying 86-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the third quarter. Darrin Reaves started the game, but Ogbonnaya saw a similar number of snaps. He will continue to share work with Reaves while DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Jonathan Stewart (knee) are out.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 05:05:00 PM

Panthers signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

Ogbonnaya worked out for Carolina last week. With DeAngelo Williams hurting his ankle Sunday, and Jonathan Stewart (knee) and Mike Tolbert (leg) also out, the Panthers are starving for help. Ogbonnaya will likely play mostly on passing downs, with Darrin Reaves and Fozzy Whittaker also in the mix.
Mon, Sep 29, 2014 06:53:00 PM

Panthers worked out free agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

It's the first we've heard of Ogbonnaya since he was cut loose by the Browns in August. With just DeAngelo Williams and Darrin Reaves as healthy runners, the Panthers could sign Ogbonnaya before Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Thu, Sep 25, 2014 07:52:00 PM

Browns released RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

The Browns didn't want to expose five-star talent Isaiah Crowell to waivers, so they make a surprising cut of a versatile player who can lead block, catch and run in a pinch. Now they only have raw rookies Terrance West and Crowell behind starter Ben Tate. It's good news for the projected catch total of Tate and West, as Ogbonnaya was thought to be headed for a third-down role. Dion Lewis was also cut Saturday.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 10:22:00 AM

RB Chris Ogbonnaya was limited to special teams in Saturday's preseason opener.

One year after catching 48 passes as part of the Browns' backfield committee, Ogbonnaya is buried behind Ben Tate, Terrance West, Dion Lewis and perhaps even Edwin Baker and Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart. He'll have to shine on special teams to keep his roster spot.
