Russell Wilson was out in front as the Broncos dove into offseason preparation Monday.
COVID-19 has swept across the NFL this week.
So far, the Broncos have been relatively unscathed.
That's made Vic Fangio "relieved, but nervous."
Denver's injuries, however, are a different story.
The Broncos are among the league's best in points allowed per game and per possession over the last eight weeks. But their troubles against the run could be a downfall.
The Broncos dominated the Cowboys on Sunday.
But injuries dominated Denver.
Here’s the most up-to-date information you need to know about all of the Broncos' injuries.
Von Miller is not the only starter the Denver Broncos won't have in Dallas when they play the Cowboys on Sunday.
Bradley Chubb hasn't received much good news on the injury front this year.
On Wednesday, however, there was a glimmer of hope. Here's when he's expected to be back for the Broncos this year.
The easiest way to find perspective on Bradley Chubb's agonizing string of injuries in the last 24 months is to compare his ledger to that of his edge-rushing complement, Von Miller.
By Tuesday afternoon, George Paton and Vic Fangio must narrow down the Broncos' roster from 80 players to the final 53.
Here's who is projected to make the final roster.
Drew Lock was electric to start Sunday's scrimmage.
Not only did he have the pass of training camp, he commanded two touchdown drives early.
Lock needed a strong day on Sunday. He delivered.
Teddy Bridgewater & Drew Lock had nearly identical practices on Wednesday.
Both started practice with 20-yard completions.
Both were efficient.
Both ended practice with red-zone INTs.
But there was one difference that tipped the scales.
Despite all of the talent across the Broncos' defense, entering the weekend, the starting unit hadn't had a single interception the first three days of camp.
On Saturday, they changed that in a big way.
Despite being the highest drafted linebacker in the Vic Fangio era, there should be minimal expectations for Baron Browning's rookie season.
Heck, the talented linebacker needs to find a position first.
Will George Paton take a similar approach to using high picks on outside linebackers much like John Elway did?
Denver's defense is guaranteed to see more games lost by starters than it did last year. How can it cope?
It hasn't been too shabby of a week for Malik Reed.
On top of his second-straight two-sack performance on Sunday, Bradley Chubb had eye-popping praise for Reed on Tuesday.
The Broncos have a chance to get three starters and many role players back for this week's big game against the Chiefs.
As Justin Simmons stated on Wednesday, there is just simply no replacing the type of player Von Miller is.
But the Broncos don't have a choice. They have to find a way to replace the irreplaceable. Here's how they'll do it.
As the regular season dawned, the Broncos were counting on a powerful defense to carry the team and sustain their hopes while a young, evolving offense found its footing. Losing Von Miller could deal a body blow to those hopes.
