  Broncos | Peyton Manning fined    Thu Aug 28, 12:17 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was fined $8200 for taunting in the team's third preseason game. Manning will not appeal the fine.

Footballguys view: That's like a quarter in real world terms. We think watching Manning get revved up was a hoot, especially since we don't get to see it often (unless he's yelling at Jeff Saturday on the bench).

  Broncos | Wes Welker ruled out of game    Wed Aug 27, 05:54 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has been ruled out of the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 27, but has been exercising and will travel with the team.

  Broncos | Wes Welker not cleared    Wed Aug 27, 05:09 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has not been cleared to practice at this point but is making good progress.

Footballguys view: Welker seems on track to play in Week 1, but even the most minimal hitch can cause players to stall out in the protocol to return indefinitely. Don't assume anything about Welker's availability week 1 until it is official.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders recovery    Tue Aug 26, 05:12 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is still not at 100 percent in his recovery from an injured right quadriceps. Sanders takes breaks during practice to avoid aggravating the injury.

Footballguys view: Sanders fragility has been an issue during his career at Pittsburgh, and it appears that it is already an issue in Denver. Second-round pick Cody Latimer is poised to take the field if Sanders or Welker go down. Make sure to stash him away in all but the shortest bench leagues.

  Broncos | Wes Welker improving    Tue Aug 26, 05:09 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) made another positive step Tuesday, Aug. 26, in his recovery from another concussion, according to head coach John Fox. Welker has still not been ruled out for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Welker sounds like he has a good chance of being ready for Week 1, but he still suffered a concussion with a special helmet meant to minimize them. That he couldn't make it through the preseason without a head injury.

  Broncos | Acquire Brandon McManus    Tue Aug 26, 03:26 PM

The Denver Broncos acquired PK Brandon McManus from the New York Giants Tuesday, Aug. 26. The return for McManus was not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McManus was originally reported as released, but the Broncos need a kicker for the first four weeks, so they jumped on him for likely minimal compensation.

  Broncos | Jordan Norwood to IR    Mon Aug 25, 07:18 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Norwood was the story of training camp for the Broncos. An unfortunate knee injury ends his comeback...and likely his career in the NFL.

  Broncos | More on Wes Welker    Mon Aug 25, 04:08 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) could play in the team's regular season opener Sunday, September 7, if he does not have any concussion symptoms by Monday, September 1. Head coach John Fox iterated that the team's primary focus is Welker's safety.

Footballguys view: Welker's fantasy owners should not hit the panic button here. However, you do need to realize that he could miss one or more games this year if he's concussed again. The Broncos are stacked at wide receiver, and they won't put Welker out there unless he's passes the NFL's concussion protocol.

  Broncos | Wes Welker update    Sun Aug 24, 11:12 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (concussion) has a good chance to play in Week 1, according to Mike Klis of The Denver Post. Welker suffered a concussion in the team's third preseason game, but his 'concussion helmet' helped absorb the blow.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Broncos here. Welker struggled with concussion problems last year, and he missed three games because of it. The Broncos are loaded at the wide receiver position, and that makes Welker a bad value at his current ADP. He's coming off the board at WR19 (4.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Trim roster    Sun Aug 24, 10:21 PM

The Denver Broncos waived RB Brennan Clay, RB Jerodis Williams, WR Greg Hardin, WR Greg Wilson, QB Bryn Renner, LB Jerrell Harris, CB Charles Mitchell and DL Will Pericak Sunday, Aug. 24. LB Chase Vaughn (undisclosed) was waived/injured.

Footballguys view: With the practice squad expanded to 10 players, we could see a few of these guys stick around in the Mile High City. Renner jumps off the list first. He's a favorite of Peyton Manning, and teams can never have enough developmental quarterbacks.

  Broncos | Two players cut    Sun Aug 24, 09:38 PM

The Denver Broncos released OT Winston Justice and LB Jamar Chaney Sunday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Justice is not that much of a surprise. He's failed to beat out Chris Clark for the starting right tackle spot. Justice also fell behind rookie third-round pick Michael Schofield.

  Broncos | Matt Prater unlikely to appeal    Sun Aug 24, 12:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos PK Matt Prater likely will not appeal his four-game suspension, because his attorney and the NFL agreed to the length. Prater was initially facing a one-year suspension.

Footballguys view: Losing Prater means rookie kicker Mitch Ewald will be the top guy for the Broncos. The Broncos have a bye in Week 4, so Prater can come back right before their Week 6 game against the Jets.

  Broncos | Matt Prater to be suspended    Sun Aug 24, 09:04 AM

Denver Broncos PK Matt Prater will be suspended the first four games of the 2014 season for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: Losing Prater is going to be a minor impact for the Broncos on the field. Rookie Mitch Ewald will take over as the top kicker for the team while Prater is out.

  Broncos | Isaiah Burse to return punts?    Sun Aug 24, 05:18 AM

Denver Broncos WR Isaiah Burse may get first crack at the punt return job because of an injury suffered by WR Jordan Norwood (knee).

Footballguys view: Burse was the talk of minicamp at the return position, but he was outplayed in training camp by Norwood. With the season-ending knee injury to Norwood, Burse has another shot to make the final roster as the sixth receiver and primary return man.

  Broncos | Wes Welker may have concussion    Sat Aug 23, 11:10 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (head) left the third preseason game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Footballguys view: Welker missed three games due to concussion problems last year. He's wearing a special helmet because of those problems, but that didn't seem to help him in the game against the Texans. We won't see him in Week 4 of the preseason (of course), and the team could limit him in practice until he's ready to go. Any absence by Welker would lead to more playing time for guys like Bubba Caldwell and Cody Latimer.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play Sat.?    Fri Aug 22, 11:16 AM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) had a full practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he could play in the team's third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Sanders played in Week 1 of the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks. He didn't record a catch, and looking back on that decision it was probably a mistake. Sanders has WR2 upside, but his current ADP (WR30, 6.10) in 12-team PPR leagues make him a value pick.

  Broncos | Wes Welker not at practice    Thu Aug 21, 01:02 PM

Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Probably just a day off for a veteran. We have Welker as a WR3 and expect a solid season from him.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders getting close    Wed Aug 20, 10:29 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was involved in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20, but he is not working in 'live' setting yet. Head coach John Fox would not rule out Sanders' return from a quadriceps injury in time for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Sanders not playing in the third preseason game should give us pause and perhaps wait on him a round or so more than we would if he was healthy. He will be solid WR2 when he is starting because of being in a Peyton Manning offense, but Sanders has struggled with durability throughout his career.

  Broncos | Montee Ball improving    Wed Aug 20, 10:27 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) continues to do more work in practice each day, but most of his work continues to be outside of the team structure. However, he was wearing pads and working individually with QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, Aug. 20, and his workload is scheduled to increase. Ball might be ready to get some action in the preseason finale.

  Broncos | Jordan Norwood suffers torn ACL    Wed Aug 20, 04:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (knee) suffered a torn acute cruciate ligament in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20.

  Broncos | Jordan Norwood leaves practice    Wed Aug 20, 01:46 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 20, after suffering an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Norwood had been getting some play with the starters with Emmanuel Sanders banged up, so this is something to watch, if only because any competent receiver can produce with Peyton Manning. We need to monitor the names of all of the WRs on the roster.

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning was disappointed with how the Broncos' offense played against the Houston Texans in practice Tuesday, Aug. 19. 'I thought our offense stunk. I thought their defense kicked our butt. We will learn from the film, and hopefully we come out tomorrow and do a better job from a players' standpoint and execute.'

  Broncos | Lamin Barrow may practice Tuesday    Mon Aug 18, 06:53 PM

Denver Broncos LB Lamin Barrow (leg) suffered a bruised leg during the second preseason game but may be able to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: The Broncos dodge a bullet here. When the injury happened against the 49ers, it looked much more severe than just a bruise. Barrow is a talented rookie who can excel in coverage. He's competing with Brandon Marshall to be the weak-side linebacker while Danny Trevathan is out.

  Broncos | Gerell Robinson to miss a few weeks    Mon Aug 18, 06:48 PM

Denver Broncos TE Gerell Robinson (knee) suffered a sprained knee during the second preseason game and will be sidelined for two weeks.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a longshot to make the final roster in Denver. He is trying to latch on as the fourth tight end, but he's been struggling with consistency in practice. This injury won't help his cause.

  Broncos | Montee Ball could return to practice    Sun Aug 17, 11:51 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is making good progress and said there is a chance he could return to practice at some point this week.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are holding joint practices with the Houston Texans this week. Ball has been working off to the side as he continues to recover from his recent appendectomy. We don't think there's any reason to rush him back into the lineup. There's a chance we could see him in Week 3 of the preseason, but perhaps holding him out until Week 1 of the regular season would be best.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders sits out preseason game    Sun Aug 17, 09:17 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) did not play in the second preseason game. Sanders missed some practice time this week, and the team wants to be cautious with Sanders.

Footballguys view: Sanders has been a bit fragile over the course of his career, with multiple serious foot issues. Still, he is the right kind of talent to excel in the screen game and draw matchups against slower defensive backs who are overmatched by the Broncos pass offense. He's a value in the 7th or later on upside alone, but he has to stay healthy to capitalize on that promise.

  Broncos | Quanterus Smith impressing coaches and players    Sun Aug 17, 02:21 AM

Denver Broncos DE Quanterus Smith, who missed all of last season due to injury, has impressed coaches with his ability to come off the edge of the line and hamper offenses. It has impressed veterans like DE DeMarcus Ware, who said 'When you think about the guy who has all the talent and is really a great player, that's what I think of with Quanterus.'

Footballguys view: Smith is a terrific stash in deep IDP dynasty or sack-heavy IDP dynasty leagues. He abused San Diego Chargers starting RT and high first-round pick DJ Fluker famously in college.

  Broncos | Jordan Norwood praised    Sat Aug 16, 01:35 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jordan Norwood was the surprise of training camp, according to WR Wes Welker. 'He's done a great job of picking up concepts, and he's got some real ability,' Welker added. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase said Norwood is very smart as far as what the defense is trying to do.

Footballguys view: Norwood is out of practice squad eligibility. He needs to make the final roster if he wants to stay in Denver. He's currently sixth on the depth chart with the Broncos, and he could help as a return man as well.

  Broncos | Von Miller says his knee is responding well    Fri Aug 15, 01:42 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) said his knee is responding well, although he is not sure if he will play in the team's third preseason game.

Footballguys view: Miller is an upside play as an LB2/LB3 in sack-heavy leagues. It might take him a few games to regain his form, but he is a perfect situation for a sack artist - on a team that intends to build big leads by going up and down the field in an uptempo, efficient passing game.

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson learning from starters    Thu Aug 14, 05:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson has kept up his speed and understanding of terminology while getting repetitions with the first-team offense, according to offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Gase hopes Thompson can translate that progress when it's game time.

Footballguys view: Thompson is arguably the best back on the roster in terms of pass-protection. He is a running back/fullback 'tweener who reminds us of former Falcons back Jason Snelling.
