06/15/17DLAdam GotsisKneeQUESTIONABLEGotsis (knee) played well in the Bronco's preseason win over the Rams, finishing with two quarterback hurries, Andrew Mason of DenverBroncos.com reports.

Gotsis appears fully recovered from the torn ACL he suffered in his final season at Georgia Tech. He seems to be in line for a role as rotational defensive lineman with Denver in his rookie season. He did miss an opportunity to deflect a pass against the Rams, but he made up for it by consistently badgering the quarterback, setting up a sack by forcing quarterback Sean Mannion into the path of linebacker Sadat Sulleyman.

06/14/17LBBrandon MarshallAchillesQUESTIONABLEMarshall was held out of practice Wednesday due to a sore Achilles, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.

Marshall is expected to be held out of Thursday's practice as well, as the team is likely placing his health as their top priority at this point in the offseason. The 27-year-old started all 11 games he played in last year for the team. Barring any setbacks, he is seemingly on track to enter training camp in full health.

06/13/17TEA.J. DerbyHamstringQUESTIONABLEAccording to head coach Vance Joseph, Derby (hamstring) is about 85 percent, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.

Derby continues his rehab from a minor hamstring ailment. It appears likely that he'll be able to return to the field for training camp, so keep an eye out for more updates at that time.

06/13/17DLKyle PekoFootQUESTIONABLEPeko broke his foot and won't be able to practice until early in training camp, Mike Kils of 9News Denver reports.

Peko is slated to undergo surgery to repair the broken bone on Wednesday before facing a recovery of six to eight weeks. The injury is potentially devastating for the young lineman, who played in just one game as a rookie in 2016. He'll need to do all he can to make the Week 1 roster when he returns now that he's going to miss several weeks.

06/07/17TEJake ButtKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEHead coach Vance Joseph said Butt (knee) could open the 2017 season on the Broncos' PUP list, All22.com's Andrew Kulp reports.

Previous reports expressed optimism Butt would be ready to go by the start of the regular season, but even the rookie himself admitted such a timeline for his return is "ambitious." While prospective fantasy owners might be discouraged by the possibility he begins the year on the PUP list, such a scenario may not be all that bad in the long run. Not only might it prevent Butt from rushing back too soon, it would also allow him an extra six weeks to get up to speed within the Broncos' offense after missing out on OTAs and the majority of training camp.

05/30/17LBShaquil BarrettHipQUESTIONABLEBarrett (hip) could return for training camp, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. "I'm doing good," Barrett said Saturday. "I have a couple more weeks left on crutches and once that's over, I should be able to start doing some more stuff to get myself ready (to return), probably about halfway through camp."

Barrett, who hurt his right hip while training by himself earlier this offseason, said he's not in pain, so it seems the crutches he's using are simply a precaution. Considering he's aiming for a return during training camp, it doesn't sound like his availability for Week 1 is in doubt.

05/25/17WRKalif RaymondHandQUESTIONABLERaymond is nursing a hand injury, Mike Klis of KUSA Channel 9 reports.

The 22-year-old was waived by the Broncos last season during final roster cuts, but ultimately rejoined the organization as a member of the practice squad late in 2016. The hand injury certainly won't help Raymond's chances of making the roster in 2017, but it doesn't look to be anything that will prevent him from taking part in training camp. His best route to making the roster will be shining on the Broncos' special teams units.

01/25/17WRMarlon BrownUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEThe Broncos placed Brown (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday.

The details surrounding Brown's injury haven't been disclosed. The towering wideout previously spent training camp with the Broncos, and while he impressed in his limited time, was ultimately waived due to a back injury prior to the season opener. He then resurfaced in Denver weeks ago, but never made any sort of on-field contribution. His release allowed the team to add more depth at linebacker with Brandon Marshall (hamstring) on the shelf.

01/25/17DLVance WalkerKneeQUESTIONABLEWalker (knee) is expected to receive full medical clearance next week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Walker missed the entire 2016 season after tearing his ACL last August. The former Bronco should be fully healthy in time for training camp, which will help the free agent's case for landing a contract from a team.

01/02/17LBZaire AndersonNeckQUESTIONABLEAnderson (neck) signed his one-year free-agent tender with the Broncos on Monday, Nick Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

Anderson was carted off the field in the regular-season finale due to a neck injury, but it doesn't appear as though the issue will prevent him from playing again. He had 14 tackles and two forced fumbles while playing primarily special teams in 16 games in 2016.

01/02/17DBT.J. WardConcussionQUESTIONABLEWard (concussion) won't play in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Ward missed last week's game due his concussion and has yet to return to practice. Will Parks is expected to start in Ward's place once again.

(Updated 12/30/2016)
01/02/17DLDerek WolfeNeckQUESTIONABLEWolfe (neck) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Wolfe injured his neck in last week's loss to Kansas City and hasn't practiced since. Adam Gotsis will likely see some extra snaps as the only backup to starting defensive ends Jared Crick and Billy Winn.
