Broncos' Virgil Green: Has finger surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green will miss most of OTAs after having finger surgery, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

Green should have plenty of time to recover before training camp starts, but his absence will allow Garrett Graham and Jeff Heuerman to take more reps with the first-team offense. Mostly used a No. 2 blocking tight end throughout his career, the 27-year-old Green finally has a good shot to earn an every-down role. Though unproven as a receiver, he has the necessary physical traits for success, having posted a 4.62-second 40-yard dash and 42.5-inch vertical at the 2011 combine. Granted, he's added a lot of weight since that time, in keeping with role as a block-first tight end. Green now hopes to find more of a balance as the likely starter on what should be a run-first team.

Broncos' Virgil Green: Eyes larger role in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green believes that it's time for him to "be the guy" in Denver, the team's official site reports

Green was one of Colin Kaepernick's favorite targets in college, but has been mostly used as blocker in Denver. He had an opportunity to become more of a receiving threat in 2015 with the departure of Julius Thomas, but Denver then signed Owen Daniels and drafted Jeff Heuerman in the third round. Daniels is now gone, but Green's role is not any more defined. Herman will return from a knee injury, and while Andy Janovich was drafted to be an in-line blocker, Garrett Graham comes aboard to provide a veteran pass-catcher.

Broncos' Virgil Green: Catches one pass against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virgil Green was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

Broncos' Virgil Green: Totals 61 yards against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Virgil Green caught three passes off of three targets for 61 yards in Sunday's win over the Packers.

Long stuck in a H-back role where he has been primarily tasked with blocking, Sunday's 61 yards set a career high for Green and his three receptions tied a career mark. Green looked comfortable as a pass catcher, splitting the defense on a 32-yard crosser and running through arm tackles to pick up extra yardage. It will be interesting to see where Green lines up in the weeks ahead following Denver's trade for Vernon Davis. Though Gary Kubiak is known for using multiple-tight-end sets, it is very possible that the move will slide Green back into the backfield in more of a blocking role.
