Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Butt caught a short out route early in the 4th on his first target of the day. He hauled in a nice toe-tapper on the sidelines late in the 4th that unfortunately only netted 5 yards on 2nd and 15. Butt was targeted on a 4th down out route with less than 3 minutes left in the game, but he couldn't hold on to the underthrown pass amidst heavy coverage from linebacker Suggs.

2018 Week 2 vs OAK (6 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)

Butt caught an out route for short gain on his first target in the 1st quarter. Keenum hit him again on a short crossing pattern that failed to convert third down at the end of the 1st. Keenum looked for him in the end zone in the 2nd quarter, but under threw the ball resulting in an interception right on the goal line. Butt hauled in a 22 yard seam route right up the middle of the field early in the 4th quarter. Butt hauled in one final catch during the last two minute drive of the game, moving the chains and helping to set Denver up for the game-winning field goal. Butt definitely looked like the preferred passing option in the tight end group. His 6 targets were the second most on the team this week. Jeff Heuerman was targeted twice but didn't do much with his catches.

2018 Week 1 vs SEA (4 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

Butt split time at TE with Heuerman and was targeted twice in the passing game. He had a short catch on an out route in the 2nd quarter. He made his second catch down the left seam late in the 4th for a gain of 22, despite drawing a defensive holding flag on the play. It's hard to say which of the two starting tight ends is the best option in the passing game, and it looks as though the Broncos passing offense is going to run through the two top receivers and the running backs.

Broncos | No timetable for Jake Butt (Thu Apr 18, 10:11 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) still doesn't have a timetable for when he may be able to return, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Our View: Butt might not be ready to start the regular season. He's talented as a 'Y' tight end and can be featured as a blocker or receiver. Butt has now injured his knees three times in his football's the reason he fell to the fifth round of the draft a couple of years ago. Don't be surprised if the Broncos take a tight end in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

Broncos | Jake Butt taking part in minicamp (Tue Apr 16, 03:21 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) is participating in minicamp, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.

Our View: Butt has had three knee injuries during his college and pro career. He could be the lead tight end for the Broncos if healthy. Butt has a good all-around skill set but has durability question marks. We'll see if he can even be ready for the start of the regular season, let alone the start of training camp. Butt was stretching with the team but did not participate in individual drills on Tuesday.
