  Broncos | Von Miller, Lerentee McCray expected to play    Mon Sep 15, 06:55 PM

Denver Broncos LBs Von Miller (groin) and Lerentee McCray (knee) are both expected to play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. Miller is the starter and has the ability to be a dominant pass-rusher for the Broncos. McCray is his backup and has played well as a reserve strong-side linebacker.

  Broncos | Wes Welker to be reinstated    Mon Sep 15, 05:03 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will officially be reinstated following the agreement of a new drug policy.

Footballguys view: Welker should be ready to go for the Week 3 game against the Seahawks. The team could use a "less is more" approach with Welker going forward. Another concussion in the preseason (his third over the last nine months) should give the team pause when considering him running routes into traffic. Welker's return does not cut into the role for both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. It might take a few red-zone targets away from Julius Thomas.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders reaches century mark    Mon Sep 15, 12:39 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders led the team with eight catches for 108 yards in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.

Footballguys view: Sanders called Denver "wide receiver heaven" for a reason. He's clearly a major part of the passing game, and we don't expect his target total to dip that much upon the return of Wes Welker. Sanders is the replacement for Eric Decker, and he doesn't run the same routes as Welker does...even though he can play the slot if necessary.

  Broncos | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 14, 03:18 PM

The Denver Broncos have declared SS David Bruton, CB Tony Carter, OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, LB Danny Trevathan inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Latimer appeared to have a chance to get early playing time with Wes Welker's suspension, but the team is content to keep him inactive in deference to the veterans. He can be dropped in shallow bench leagues, and maybe more, but be ready to pick him up if there's news of any involvement in the potent Peyton Manning offense.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas vows to fix drops    Sat Sep 13, 10:16 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas dropped three passes in the team's Week 1 game, but he says the rough outing is behind him and expects the fix the problem. 'My main thing was trying to get the ball up the field too fast,' Thomas said. 'So, this week has been mainly watch the ball in before I make the move.'

Footballguys view: Peyton Manning has been known to help his receivers have bounce back weeks. Don't be surprised if Thomas is the #1 overall fantasy receiver this week.

  Broncos | Wes Welker out for Week 2    Sat Sep 13, 04:17 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is not on the 53-man roster Saturday, Sept. 13, and will not play Sunday, Sept. 14, in Week 2.

Footballguys view: We're not surprised by this news. Welker will be back soon enough. When he returns, beat writers like Klis are expecting a "less is more" approach with the veteran receiver. With the emergence of Emmanuel Sanders, Welker is more like a flex play with upside in the new-look Broncos offense.

  Broncos | Wes Welker unlikely in Week 2    Fri Sep 12, 10:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is unlikely to play in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs, as he has not gone through a full practice since Aug. 19.

  Broncos | Wes Welker eligible in Week 2    Fri Sep 12, 07:26 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker is eligible to return to the field in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Sept. 14, following the agreement between the league and NFLPA on terms for the new drug policy.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Welker is active. Mike Klis of the Denver Post indicated that it is no sure thing that Welker will play this weekend.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman expected to be active    Fri Sep 12, 06:04 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (illness) is expected to be active in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: CJ Anderson's role as the backup could be in jeopardy, but he has shown more in limited playing time than Hillman has in multiple opportunities to impress. Anderson is still the Broncos back to own if Montee Ball goes down.

  Broncos | Wes Welker cleared from concussion    Fri Sep 12, 05:54 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol, and he would be able to play in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs if he is cleared by the NFL surrounding a possible new deal on a drug agreement. However, that doesn't mean he'd be active for the game.

Footballguys view: Welker is a low-end flex play if he goes on Sunday. He has a high ceiling but the extent of his use - if he is active - is unknown.

  Broncos | Friday injury report    Fri Sep 12, 05:13 PM

Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. OG Ben Garland (ankle) is doubtful. S David Bruton (shoulder) is questionable, while OT Ryan Clady (foot), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Nate Irving (knee), C Manuel Ramirez (back), DE DeMarcus Ware (thigh) and CB Kayvon Webster (ankle) are probable. Trevathan didn't practice Friday, Sept. 12. Bruton and Garland were limited, while the others practiced in full.

  Broncos | Re-sign Nathan Palmer to practice squad    Thu Sep 11, 12:45 PM

The Denver Broncos re-signed WR Nathan Palmer to their practice squad Thursday, Sept. 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Broncos moved Palmer onto the active roster to take Wes Welker's roster spot, but he gets moved back down to make room for other players. The team could be getting Welker back if the NFL/NFLPA implement the new drug policy and eliminate the suspensions under the old policy.

  Broncos | Montee Ball fighting for yards    Thu Sep 11, 11:24 AM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed for 69 yards in the team's Week 1 game, but 55 of those yards came after contact.

Footballguys view: Despite having Peyton Manning throwing the ball, defenses aren't backing off defending the run for the pass. This week things should be a tad easier as Kansas City is on the ropes already. We expect Ball to put up RB1 numbers against the Chiefs.

The Denver Broncos signed TE Dominique Jones (Bills) to the team's practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 9. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Broncos | Andre Caldwell starting Week 1    Sun Sep 7, 06:51 PM

Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell is listed as a starter for Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Sept. 7, in place of the suspended WR Wes Welker. The team is expected to use a combination of WRs Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and even their running backs in the slot for Week 1. The team might also use two tight ends while using flex TE Jacob Tamme in the slot.

Footballguys view: Caldwell is looking like the safer PPR play, while Cody Latimer's rumored red zone involvement makes him the upside play in nonPPR leagues. Both are worth consideration as flex material simply by being one of Peyton Manning's targets tonight against a weak defense.

  Broncos | Wes Welker cleared    Sun Sep 7, 12:36 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) was cleared to play by an independent doctor last week and would be ready to play if his four-game suspension is lifted. Welker's suspension may be lifted if the NFL and NFL Players Association are able to agree on a new drug testing policy.

Footballguys view: Welker's concussion doesn't seem to be a short-term concern, but we can't say the same thing if he suffers another one this year.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 4.

The Denver Broncos have promoted practice squad WR Nathan Palmer to their active roster.

  Broncos | Wes Welker suspended    Tue Sep 2, 06:55 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker has been suspended four games for amphetamine use, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Wow. Big news here. The Broncos are stacked at the wide receiver position, so this isn't something that will slow the offense down. We could see Emmanuel Sanders move inside to slot (he's going to next year anyway). Then it could be a combination of Andre "Bubba" Caldwell or Cody Latimer outside to start opposite Demaryius Thomas. Tight end Jacob Tamme can also play the slot if need be.

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) is on the practice field Monday, Sept. 1, but has not been cleared for contact or to play at this point.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are still following NFL protocol with Welker. He should be ready to play for the Sunday night opener against the Colts. Coming back from this latest concussion we can only recommend Welker as a flex if he's cleared to play.

  Broncos | Nine players added to practice squad    Sun Aug 31, 03:02 PM

The Denver Broncos have signed LB Shaquil Barrett, RB Kapri Bibbs, FS John Boyett, QB Zac Dysert, WR Bennie Fowler, OT Vinston Painter, WR Nathan Palmer, C Matt Paradis and WR Gerell Robinson to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: The Broncos get to keep Dysert around. The 2013 seventh-round pick has a rocket arm and the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield. Bibbs also stays in Colorado after a standout 2013 season with Colorado State. He has good balance and looks better as a receiver than some expected.
