Fowler (elbow) is expected to play in Sunday's contest, Cameron Wolfer of The Denver Post reports.
All signs indicate that Fowler will be ready for Sunday which is something not a lot of Broncos can say this week. It remains to be seen whether or not Fowler will be forced to wear some sort of brace on his elbow, but the expectation is that he will play Sunday.
Green (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati, The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe reports.
Previously expected to be a game-time decision, Green was ruled out after missing a third consecutive practice Friday. His absence leaves Jeff Heuerman as the likely top tight end, with John Phillips also in the mix for additional playing time. Neither offers much fantasy appeal in a difficult matchup, as the stagnant Denver passing game is still heavily reliant on Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and C.J. Anderson.
Simmons was spotted with a soft cast on his left hand but is expected to play in Sunday's matchup with the Bengals, Troy Renck of Denver 7 reports.
Simmons had four tackles in Sunday's win over the Colts but evidently injured his hand in the process. The specifics of the injury are still unknown, but look to this week's practice reports to determine Simmons status. If he does miss time, Darian Stewart will be the only free safety on the active roster.
Watson registered four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Saturday's preseason win over the Rams.
The former journeyman middle linebacker has found his calling on the outside this preseason, racking up four sacks and a safety this preseason. Outside rusher is arguably Denver's deepest position with Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray all locks to make the team. Watson is likely in their company. The Broncos carried five outside linebackers last season and the team could use additional depth in an effort to keep Ware fresh during the season.
Keo resigned with the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News.com reports.
Keo rejoins the team just a few days after they parted ways. The safety was suspended for the first two weeks of the season but is now able to take the field again. He'll compete with rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks for a backup safety position.
Gaffney (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Patriots on Friday, Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com reports.
The transaction removes Gaffney from the Patriots' injured reserve. If he can regain his health, it isn't out of the realm of possibility for the running back to resurface with another organization before season's end.
The Patriots have signed Ninkovich (suspension) to a one-year contract extension, NFL.com reports.
Though he's suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season and concurrently nursing a triceps injury, the Patriots' brass still clearly considers Ninkovich a key piece of their defense for the foreseeable future. Previously set to hit the free agent market after at season's end, Ninkovich is now set to remain in New England through 2017.
Williams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.
Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.
While playing the entire first half of Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants, Brady (suspension) completed 16 of 26 passes for 166 yards, with a TD and a pick.
With Brady having seemingly finished up the game in good health, the veteran QB's first regular-season action is set for Week 5 against the Browns, after he serves his four-game suspension at the beginning of the upcoming campaign. In the meantime, Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to start the Patriots' first four games of the upcoming campaign.
Williams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.
As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.
