  Broncos | Kapri Bibbs was attracting outside interest    Mon Oct 20, 07:06 PM

Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs was attracting interest from other teams on the practice squad, and the Broncos elevated him to their active roster because they didn't want to lose him to another team. The move reflects more on outside interest for Bibbs than it has anything to do with replacing RB Juwan Thompson (knee), who has been dealing with a sore knee. Thompson was able to practice Monday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: Bibbs looked good in the preseason for the Broncos. His greatest asset is balance, and he's proven to be a better receiver than expected. He's going to be the fourth-string back for the Broncos behind Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Kapri Bibbs added to roster    Mon Oct 20, 06:39 PM

The Denver Broncos signed practice squad RB Kapri Bibbs to their active roster Monday, Oct. 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Broncos | Brandon McManus not practicing    Mon Oct 20, 04:58 PM

Denver Broncos PK Brandon McManus (groin) did not practice Monday, Oct. 20. The Broncos didn't officially conduct a practice, so McManus' designation is an estimation.

  Broncos | Montee Ball remains out    Mon Oct 20, 04:55 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice again Monday, Oct. 20. The Broncos didn't actually practice, so Ball's designation is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Yep...and when he comes back, he may not be the starter for the Broncos anymore. Ronnie Hillman has done a good job as the team's lead back while Ball has missed time with this groin injury. The team is firing on all cylinders offensively, and their ground game looks better with Hillman than it did with Ball. We'll see how this shakes out when Ball returns to the practice field...perhaps next week.

  Broncos | Monday practice report    Mon Oct 20, 04:37 PM

Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (concussion), LB Steven Johnson (ankle) didn't practice Monday, Oct. 20. S Quinton Carter (hamstring), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), RB Juwan Thompson (knee) and S T.J. Ward (knee) practiced in full. The Broncos didn't hold a practice, so the designations are an estimation.

Footballguys view: The note fantasy owners should take here is on Thompson. The last two weeks he has been limited on the first day of practice. This week, he's good to go. Thompson will play as a reserve back behind Ronnie Hillman.

  Broncos | Omar Bolden has concussion    Mon Oct 20, 03:41 PM

Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 7 game and is going through the concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Bolden is a reserve defensive back for the team, and he also plays special teams. We could see Tony Carter activated if Bolden isn't ready to go on Thursday night against the Chargers.

  Broncos | Blowout ends Peyton's night early    Sun Oct 19, 10:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning left the Week 7 game against the San Francisco early in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score. He led Denver to a 42-10 lead early in the fourth quarter before giving way to QB Brock Osweiler. Manning finished the game 22 of 28 for 318 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Footballguys view: Osweiler's appearance is the ultimate rich man/poor man for the Broncos. It's either great (blowout win) or terrible (Manning hurt) when we see the third-year quarterback in the game. Osweiler is only under contract through 2015, while Manning is under contract through 2016. There's a chance we never see Osweiler play meaningful snaps for the Broncos if Manning continues to play at a high level.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning sets NFL record    Sun Oct 19, 09:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning threw his third touchdown of the first half of Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers to WR Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter. It was the 509th touchdown pass of Manning's career, as he moved into the top spot in NFL history for career touchdown passes.

Footballguys view: Manning is in the greatest ever discussion, and he continues to win fans with his dominant fantasy production.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning ties NFL record    Sun Oct 19, 07:36 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has had two offensive drives in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers so far, and both have resulted in touchdown passes. He ties former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre for the most touchdown passes in NFL history with 508.

  Broncos | Week 7 Inactives    Sun Oct 19, 07:30 PM

The Denver Broncos have declared OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, OT Michael Schofield, DL Mitch Unrein, RB Montee Ball, LB Shaquil Barrett, CB Tony Carter inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Latimer won't see the field unless the Broncos suffer injuries at wide receiver. Ball won't be back any time soon.

  Broncos | Juwan Thompson at No. 2 RB    Sat Oct 18, 04:39 PM

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is slotted behind RB Ronnie Hillman on the depth chart, and he is a versatile back. He never rushed for more than 500 yards in a season in college, but he caught the ball well, blocked well and played special teams. He even started a game at linebacker in college.

Footballguys view: Hillman is the guy to own and a low-end RB2 against the Niners. Thompson would be an interesting guy if he had to step in long term but no more than an RB3/flex unless we get a chance to see something.

  Broncos | Montee Ball unlikely to regain role    Sat Oct 18, 04:38 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will have a difficult time regaining the featured-back role this season after his injury. It's beat writer Mike Klis' opinion that Ball never fully recovered from his appendectomy, which could have been a precursor to his groin injury.

Footballguys view: We will see what really happens but it could be that Ball is going to have to earn that job all over again. Ball just didn't look right this season so Klis may be right. Don't give up on him in dynasty, and he's worth the roster spot for redraft unless you're in desperate need of a starter.

Denver Broncos CB Omar Bolden (groin), FS David Bruton (ankle), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Corey Nelson (hamstring) and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and are listed as probable for Week 7.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Ball is nowhere near returning from his groin injury. It'll be another start for Ronnie Hillman on Sunday.

  Broncos | Von Miller sheds knee brace    Fri Oct 17, 08:34 AM

Denver Broncos OLB Von Miller (knee) has shed the brace on his knee, which is an indicator he's all the way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Miller has five sacks in six games thus far.

Footballguys view: The Broncos D/ST becomes more attractive with Miller providing a strong pass rush presence opposite free agent pickup Demarcus Ware with opponents most likely playing from behind against Peyton Manning.

  Broncos | Julius Thomas works with Tony Gonzalez    Thu Oct 16, 10:38 PM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas received several tips from Tony Gonzalez this offseason. 'I wasn't going to rest on what I did last year,' Thomas said. 'I was really determined to come in and keep working and try to find every way I could to get better.'

Footballguys view: The work Thomas did this offseason is certainly helping him dominate this season. He's the top tight end in fantasy football, and Thomas is leading the league with nine touchdown receptions so far. With the way that he's catching touchdowns on such a frequent basis, he could surpass the single-season record (17) for touchdowns by tight ends in a season (Rob Gronkowski, 2011).

  Broncos | Montee Ball not practicing    Thu Oct 16, 06:45 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) missed his second straight practice this week Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: LOL. He shouldn't even be on the practice report this week. We know Ball is going to be out for an undetermined amount of time. Ronnie Hillman is a RB2/flex play in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Watch Thompson here. He missed last Wednesday's practice last week, but he was a full participant on Friday. Thompson worked as the second-string back behind Ronnie Hillman.

  Broncos | Gerald Rivers signs    Wed Oct 15, 01:04 PM

The Denver Broncos signed free-agent DE Gerald Rivers (Rams) to their practice squad Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Rivers (6-5, 258 pounds) is a second-year player who appeared in two games with St. Louis and Jacksonville in 2013 after signing with the Rams as a college free agent form the University of Mississippi. He competed with the Jaguars through training camp this year before being waived and spending four weeks on Miami's practice squad.

  Broncos | Shaquil Barrett to be promoted    Tue Oct 14, 06:27 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shaquil Barrett will be promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.

  Broncos | Shaquil Barrett to be promoted?    Tue Oct 14, 06:04 PM

  Broncos | Danny Trevathan to IR/Designation to Return    Tue Oct 14, 05:31 PM

The Denver Broncos placed LB Danny Trevathan (knee) on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Oct. 14, with a designation to return, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's not a big surprise with this news item. Trevathan should be out about six weeks with this latest fracture to his left leg. He missed most of the season dealing with a small fracture below his left knee cap after suffering the injury in training camp. He can return to play in the Broncos' 14th game Dec. 14 at San Diego.

  Broncos | Danny Trevathan out 3-6 weeks    Mon Oct 13, 03:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos LB Danny Trevathan (knee) is expected to miss three to six weeks with a crack above his left knee. He will not need surgery and will not be placed on Reserve/Injured.

Footballguys view: Trevathan just got back from a similar injury. He missed seven weeks after a leg fracture he suffered in training camp. Fractures take about six weeks to properly heal.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman propels running game    Mon Oct 13, 02:12 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman ran for 100 yards Sunday, Oct. 12, against the New York Jets while RB Juwan Thompson gained 38 yards on the ground. It was the team's highest single-game rushing total so far this season.

Footballguys view: We got some clarity in the Broncos running back situation this week. Hillman is the main back, and he's not losing many touches to rookie Juwan Thompson. Expect this split to get a bit closer together in the near future. Hillman's 24 carries will be difficult to repeat each week because of his small size.

The Denver Broncos have declared OG Ben Garland, WR Cody Latimer, LB Lerentee McCray, OT Michael Schofield, DL Mitch Unrein, RB Montee Ball, CB Tony Carter inactive for Week 6.

Footballguys view: All three Broncos running backs will get some touches with Ball out and hopefully sort out this muddy situation for us with their level of play against the the Jets today.

  Broncos | Committee to replace Montee Ball?    Sat Oct 11, 08:43 PM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman, RB C.J. Anderson and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) will all be leaned on while RB Montee Ball (groin) is out with a groin injury, according to head coach John Fox. Anderson said he feels that the back that has the hot hand will receive a majority of the carries.

Footballguys view: It's hard to trust any Broncos back as more than a what the heck flex against the stiff Jets run defense, although a short touchdown or three is certainly possible. This is also a situation that will likely resist being clear both while Ball is out, and even after he returns.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders looking for first TD    Sat Oct 11, 01:25 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders leads the team in receptions and receiving yards but has yet to score through four games. Sanders and the Broncos face a New York Jets defense that has allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers.

Footballguys view: Sanders has been outstanding this season and even if Demaryius Thomas continues to play as well as he did last week (though we stop short of predicting another 226 yard day), he should continue to put up great numbers. In fact, we have both as WR1 options this week, though Thomas is rated higher than Sanders.

Denver Broncos FS David Bruton (ankle), WR Andre Caldwell (knee), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), LB Lerentee McCray (knee), OT Michael Schofield (non-injury) and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and are listed as probable for Week 6.

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Ball is going to be out for at least a few more weeks and could come back to a smaller role than the clear feature back job he left.

  Broncos | Demaryius Thomas refocused     Thu Oct 9, 10:07 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said that he let his first drop of the season affect his confidence until he was able to clear his head during the bye week.

Footballguys view: Thomas certainly looked better in Week 5 than he had all year. The Broncos have abandoned balance, and they are back to being the pass-happy team they were last season. That's great news for fantasy owners.

Footballguys view: Thompson is the player to watch here. He'll suit up against the Jets, but it's going to be C.J. Anderson as the primary backup behind Ronnie Hillman this week. With Caldwell fully practicing, we may not see rookie Cody Latimer active (again).

  Broncos | LaRod Stephens-Howling worked out    Thu Oct 9, 11:49 AM

Free-agent RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (Steelers) worked out for the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Oct. 7.

Footballguys view: With Montee Ball hurt, the Broncos are just looking to shore up their backfield. Stephens-Howling could be an OK change of pace back or help in the return game but even if he signs with Denver, his fantasy relevance is minimal.

LaRod Stephens-Howling player page


  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman the guy    Thu Oct 9, 10:40 AM

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will serve as the lead running back in RB Montee Ball's (groin) absence. 'Ronnie has played at different times, in different amounts, but when you're the starting back and running out there in pregame warm-ups as a starting back, it's a different hat that you wear,' said QB Peyton Manning. 'There's no question he has a burst that is pretty unique when he gets the ball in his hands. It's our job to give him space.'

Footballguys view: Hillman has had his shot before and (literally) dropped the ball, so we'll believe he keeps it when we see it. C.J. Anderson could still see plenty of work of Hillman can't keep it together. Neither one is more than a Flex/RB3 until we see how this shakes out.
