Broncos' Virgil Green: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Green, who missed practice all of last week before being ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, is thus considered day-to-day by the Broncos as Sunday's game against the Bucs approaches.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Makes first NFL reception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman caught his first NFL pass, a 29-yard reception, in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

The pass, a deep corner down the left sideline late in the 4th quarter, gave a glimpse as to why Denver drafted him in the third round of the 2015 draft. Heuerman clearly has the ability to stretch the field, but it's fair to wonder whether he'll be able to secure more than a bit role in the short term once starter Virgil Green comes back. Heuerman's torn ACL last year and hamstring trouble in training camp have limited his reps in the offense. John Phillips provides a veteran backup to Green, making Heuerman - seen as the potential starter earlier in camp - the No. 3 at the moment.

Broncos' Shane Ray: Ravages the Bengals with three sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray tallied six tackles, three sacks and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

Last year's first-round pick was relentless while filling in for DeMarcus Ware, but it can't be said that it came out of nowhere. Ray was seen by some as a potential top 10 pick last year before an indiscretion involving marijuana pushed him down draft boards. Ray will have at least a few more weeks to shine with Ware out of the lineup and, given the Broncos' plans to keep Ware on a snap limit this season to begin with, it's quite possible that Ray will be able to sneak into the starting lineup in base packages even when the veteran returns.

Broncos' John Phillips: Scores on the Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Phillips caught two of four passes for nine yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

Phillips got the start in place of the injured Virgil Green and responded with his first catches of the season. Whether he gets many more remains to be seen. Phillips didn't receive so much as a target while in reserve duty during Weeks 1 and 2 and Green shouldn't be out for much longer. The young Jeff Heuerman could also snatch away any targets that would otherwise go to Phillips as he flashed some big-play potential in his first career action on Sunday.

Broncos' Devontae Booker: Held to 25 yards versus Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Booker rushed for eight yards on four carries and caught one pass for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

A week after a 10-touch performance against Indianapolis, Booker was back to limited duty against the Bengals. Part of the step back can be attributed to the Bengals' stingy rush defense and the Broncos' efforts in airing it out. Still, two of Booker's first three games have ended with five or fewer touches and less than three yards per carry. Even if the team sees him as a future challenger to C.J. Anderson's role as top back, it's clear that that time is not right around the corner.
