They always say, "Next man up." But what happens when you run out of next men? The Broncos might be at that point if their COVID-19 woes get any worse.
For the first time in two months, Bradley Chubb practiced.
But the Broncos didn't escape the Bye Week unscathed.
“It’s showing true concern and care for not only us as players, but us as human beings," Teddy Bridgewater said.
The Denver Broncos' initial 53-man roster is officially set.
Here's how the roster shakes out and what George Paton and Vic Fangio had to say about it.
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 and Jerry Jeudy have only worked together for four practices. But you wouldn't have known it by the way they meshed Tuesday when the Broncos began the second week of Phase 3 of their 2021 organized team activities.
Before free agency, Surtain, Farley and Horn were the heavy favorites to be Denver's first pick in the draft.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is this: It can always get worse. But it has also been a test of character. Sunday, the Broncos showed why they're passing that test.
While it isn't yet time to write the eulogy for the Broncos' 61st and most unusual season, the Broncos' struggles to protect the football on offense and pry it loose on defense offer a clear reason why the team has yet to gain any traction in the AFC race.
Denver's defense is guaranteed to see more games lost by starters than it did last year. How can it cope?
The Broncos desperately needed a win and takeaways last week.
Vic Fangio offered his team a "little deal" if they were able to do both. They did.

Two of them are no longer on the roster. Here's why.
With no advanced notice, Vic Fangio made Essang Bassey the Broncos' starting nickel cornerback during practice on Wednesday.
The undrafted rookie impressed.
