Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 17 / 1 rec)
Green, functioning primarily as an in-line blocker for most of the game, was wide open on a play action pass from the 2 yard line in the 3rd quarter. The score was Green's first of the season. His only score of the preseason also came on a goal line play action pass that left him wide open, with both touchdowns owing more to the misdirection of the play and proximity to the end zone than Green's talent or effort. Green also had an 8 yard reception over the middle in the 2nd quarter, and Green finished the day with 3 catches for 17 yards total.
2016 Week 15 vs NE (2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Green caught 1 of 2 targets for 9 yards before leaving in the 1st quarter of the game with a concussion. His first target was a curl route on Siemian's first pass attempt of the 1st quarter that Green could not corral. Green was concussed on his only catch of the day, another quick curl that he gathered before taking a hit to the helmet on the way to the ground.
2016 Week 14 vs TEN (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green was targeted deep down the left sideline on the Broncos' final offensive drive, but the ball bounced off his hands as he was making a tough diving effort for the catch.
2016 Week 13 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green could not secure his lone target in the passing game.
2016 Week 10 vs NO (6 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
It was a slow day for Green, who was only able to corral 2 of his 6 targets. Green caught a short out route on the Broncos' final drive of the 1st half for a gain of 9, then opened up the 3rd quarter by breaking a couple of tackles and taking a tight end screen down the sideline for a gain of 15.
2016 Week 9 vs OAK (4 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Green juggled a good pass that nearly resulted in an interception early in the 1st quarter. Had Green secured it, it would have converted a long 3rd down for the Broncos. Green picked up 11 yards on an out route in the last minute of the 2nd quarter. Green extended a 3rd quarter drive by hauling in a pass down the seam and rumbling 26 yards for a conversion on 3rd down. He could not convert his 4th and final target of the day.
2016 Week 8 vs SD (6 / 4 / 55 / 0 rec)
Green's first reception of the day was a short screen pass to the left on the first play of the game. He caught a crossing route for an 8 yard gain in the 3rd quarter. Green hauled in an out route for a 13 yard gain late in the 3rd quarter from the inline position. He finished his day with a big catch down the numbers late in the 4th quarter for a 31 yard gain.
2016 Week 6 vs SD (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Green started at tight end for a the first time since injuring his calf a few weeks ago and had a quiet return with just 3 catches for 21 yards on 4 targets He drew his first target in the 3rd quarter while Siemian was scrambling away from Joey Bosa and several other defenders in his own end zone. He caught a short pass for minimal gain on a curl route in the 3rd quarter, and another short gain on a crossing route in the 4th. Green picked up a 1st down with reception on an out route during the Broncos' final drive of the game, and then another gain of 9 on an out route after the Broncos recovered an onside kick with seconds left in the game.
2016 Week 2 vs IND (3 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)
After his first reception, Green used a nasty stiff-arm to spring himself free on an out route in the 2nd quarter, picking up 16 yards and a 1st down on 3rd and 8. Green picked up another big 3rd down conversion in the 3rd quarter down the left numbers. Green's third catch of the day was a big gain down the middle of the field late in the 4th quarter. Green lined up inline like a blocker and took off down the hash at the snap. Green caught all 3 of his targets, but didn't receive the volume that fantasy owners might have been hoping for with Demaryius Thomas supposedly hobbled by a hip injury coming into the game. Green injured his calf late in the game and was seen leaving the stadium in a walking boot. His status for next week is still unknown.
2016 Week 1 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)
Green dominated tight end snaps and was featured in every offensive formation, working in-line occasionally flexing out to the slot. He caught his first target of the night on the sidelines as quarterback Siemian scrambled away from pressure. The play converted 3rd and 10. Green caught a curl route for a short gain in the third quarter, failing to convert a 3rd and long. Green caught a tight end screen for a short gain later in the third quarter, and made a great leaping catch in traffic on the next play to pick up the first down. Green took a hard hit on the catch and was replaced by John Phillips for a couple of plays while he recovered on the sidelines. He did re-enter the game and appeared fine after that.
