  • Denver Injuries

    08/28/16WRCody LatimerKneeQUESTIONABLELatimer (knee) walked off gingerly after hurting his knee blocking for the punt return unit. The injury is not believed to be serious, Denver Post reports.

    Both Latimer and head coach Gary Kubiak downplayed the severity of the injury, with Latimer saying that he believes that he'll be ready for the season opener against Carolina. Fellow backup receiver Bennie Fowler remains out with a fractured elbow, leaving the No. 3 receiver job open for Latimer. Latimer has showed flashes of the player Denver thought it was getting in the second round of the 2014 draft, accumulating nine catches for 121 yards in just over two games of work.

    08/15/16DLVance WalkerKneeOUTWalker has an ACL injury that will cause him to miss the entire 2016 season, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.

    Walker was carted off the field during Monday's practice, and an MRI confirmed the worst case scenario. The veteran defensive lineman was projected to backup Derek Wolfe on the left side of the line this season. Calvin Heurtelou now figures to slide into that role.

    07/28/16LBDeMarcus WareBackNFIWare (undisclosed) practiced in half-speed team drills Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    The Broncos looked like their old selves Wednesday with the returns of both Aqib Talib and Ware. While the quarterback dilemma is likely to linger on all season long, having Ware back on the field is a huge boost, regardless of form. In just 11 games last season, the 34-year-old registered 7.5 sacks to compliment 25 combined tackles. Ware is an unquestionable leader of Denver's defense, and the mere sight of him on the practice field is likely to lift team spirits.

    07/27/16DBAqib TalibLegNFITalib (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    Talib's roller coaster offseason seems to finally be approaching a halt. His leg is near 100 percent, and after a report earlier this week indicating that Talib is likely to play on Saturday, there is reason to be optimistic in Denver. The Broncos have a plethora of stability issues at the moment, so seeing Talib back on the practice field Wednesday has to be reassuring for coach Gary Kubiak and company.

    Atlanta Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/11/16DBKeanu NealTorsoPROBABLENeal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/11/16TELevine ToiloloHandPROBABLEToilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.

    (Updated 08/19/2016)
    08/11/16RBTerron WardAnkleQUESTIONABLEWard (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.

    Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
