Bibbs rushed for 129 yards on 29 carries and added two catches for 75 yards and a score during the 2016 season. Bibbs enters the 2017 offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, but it'd be a surprise if Denver didn't bring him back. The former undrafted free agent out of Colorado State got his first taste of extended action in 2016, flashing big-play ability down the stretch - including a 69-yard touchdown off of a screen in Week 9 against Oakland. That big-play ability had him on the precipice of taking the starting job from 2016 fourth-round pick Devontae Booker had Bibbs not suffered a season-ending ankle injury. Expect Bibbs and Booker to duke it out during training camp for the right to be C.J. Anderson's primary backup in 2017.
The Broncos placed Bibbs (ankle) on injured reserve Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Bibbs suffered what is believed to be a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's game at Jacksonville, forcing him to don a walking boot. Because such an injury is accompanied by a lengthy absence, the Broncos claimed Forsett off waivers from the Lions to provide a semblance of depth behind Devontae Booker. Bibbs will end his second season in Denver with 29 carries for 129 yards and two receptions (on four targets) for 75 yards and one touchdown across 12 games.
Bibbs remains in a walking boot after suffering a high ankle sprain Sunday against the Jaguars, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Bibbs' ankle problem could foreseeably keep him out of practice this week, which would cast doubt over his status for Sunday's game against the Titans. If that indeed proves true, the Broncos would seemingly need to address their running back options, as Devontae Booker represents the only healthy tailback on their current roster.
Bibbs said after Sunday's game in Jacksonville that he suffered a high-ankle sprain, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports. Bibbs led the Broncos with 49 yards on only five carries, one of which went for 24 yards. Among 31 touches this season, he also has a 69-yard touchdown catch to his credit. However, his change-of-pace role could soon be a thing of the past if he indeed has a seriously sprained ankle. Limping in the locker room thereafter, he was eventually seen leaving with a walking boot on his left foot, per Troy Renck of Denver7 ABC. With only one healthy running back on the roster -- Devontae Booker -- the Broncos are seemingly in the market to bring a fresh body into the backfield this week.
Bibbs suffered an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's tilt with Jaguars, Patrick Smyth of the team's official site reports. Look for more updates to come as the game progresses. In the meantime, Devontae Booker and fullback Juwan Thompson will be the only available options in the Broncos' backfield.
