Jordan Norwood will compete for a role with the Broncos this season and could be the No. 3 receiver behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. He'll compete with Cody Latimer for the job, but even if he wins the position battle he'll just have minimal Fantasy value in deeper leagues. Norwood had 22 catches for 207 yards in 2015 and only has one career touchdown.
Norwood has agreed to a one-year deal with the Broncos, Mike Klis of 9News reports. Norwood caught 22 balls for 207 yards without a touchdown in 2015 for the Broncos in 11 games, as he was limited by a hamstring injury in October and November. Expect him to occupy a similar role in Denver in 2016, as he won't be challenging Demaryius Thomas nor Emmanuel Sanders for a top role in the Broncos offense.
Norwood (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs. Norwood hasn't played since Week 6, though after putting in a full practice on Friday, it was looking as if he may have been on track to play. Look for Denver to continue to rotate their backup receivers to pick up the slack in Norwood's absence.
Norwood (hamstring) participated in practice on Wednesday. Norwood returned to the practice field for the first time since he suffered a hamstring injury in practice on October 30. It is unknown if Norwood will be healthy enough to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, but his status should become more clear as the week progresses.
Norwood (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Colts. Norwood was able to work on the sideline at Friday's practice, which suggests that the wideout has a shot to return to action in Week 10 against the Chiefs.
Norwood (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against Green Bay, the Broncos' official website reports. Andre Caldwell, Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler are all candidates to take on some extra snaps in Norwood's absence, but the Denver passing game will still be extremely dependent on Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sander. The prolific duo has accounted for 81 percent of the team's wideout targets this season.
