The Broncos have a chance to get three starters and many role players back for this week's big game against the Chiefs.
The injury bug struck the Broncos and hasn't left.
After losing Von Miller for a majority of the year, if not the entire year, just before the start of the season, Denver lost A.J. Bouye and Phillip Lindsay for multiple weeks during Week 1's game against the Tennessee Titans.
But losing three Pro Bowl players just wasn't enough. On Sunday, Denver lost Pro Bowl receiver Courtland Sutton and Drew Lock as well as many players on the defensive side of the ball.
The Broncos' pass rush is going to be a problem for opponents. Sunday morning, it was a problem for Denver's offense.
While being a third-round pick is certainly impressive, McTelvin Agim hasn’t always been in the back half of Top 100 rankings. In fact, coming out of high school, the 6-foot-3, 309-pound lineman was a five-star recruit, the No. 1 rated prospect coming out of the state of Arkansas and the reigning Gatorade Player of the Year in Arkansas. Talent, clearly, has never been an issue for Denver’s newest defensive lineman.
Not only does Denver’s $122 million allocated to the defense lead the league, but it’s also 33 percent more than the league average of $92 million. That means Vic Fangio’s unit better be darn good.
John Elway can have upwards of $100 million by saying goodbye to some of the players who are under contract for the 2020 season. Here’s who would free up cap space if they Broncos let them go.
If Broncos players achieve these five statistical benchmarks the rest of the way, you'll know the team is headed in the right direction, regardless of the W-L ledger at the end of the season.
With the offseason, training camp and preseason complete, building the roster is the only thing that stands between the Broncos and the regular season.
With cut day less than a week away, John Elway and Co. got a jumpstart on all of the moves they have to make by Saturday at 2:00 PM in the Mile High City.
With roughly 20 percent of the roster up for grabs entering the final stretch, here's how the bubble players stack up at each position.
Vic Fangio let the tides settle in Thursday’s practice by taking the pads off and having a shorter practice before the waves will start crashing on Friday with the 49ers.
While most of Denver’s starters were held out of the game, there was plenty to be learned from the team’s extra preseason game. And there were plenty of positives.
Von Miller didn’t make practice enjoyable for his offensive tackle teammates, or quarterbacks for that matter, as he practically lived deep in the pocket all day long.
The Broncos drafted DeMarcus Walker in the second round, but he's been inactive for the majority of his two-year career.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — This is not what the Broncos envisioned when they spent a second-round pick on DeMarcus Walker in 2017. After ranking second in the nation in sacks his senior year in college, Walker has produced just one sack in two years as a pro. Even worse, he's not even getting the chance to produce more. After playing sparingly...
Riding a mile high after their 24-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, the Broncos were brought back down to earth as they were hit hard with bad news on the injury front Monday.
