05/25/17TEJake ButtKneeQUESTIONABLEHead 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.

05/25/17WRKalif RaymondHandQUESTIONABLERaymond is currently dealing with a hand injury, Mike Klis of 9news.com reports.

The severity is not known at this time. The 22-year-old was waived by the Broncos last season during final roster cuts, but ultimately re-signed to the practice squad in the latter portion of the season. His best route to making the final roster this year will be through displaying what he can offer on special teams, specifically the return game.

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.

01/25/17RBAndy JanovichAnkleQUESTIONABLEHead coach Gary Kubiak said Janovich (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve this week.

Janovich sustained a season-ending ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Chiefs that required surgery Wednesday. Kubiak said RB/FB Juwan Thompson will be the next man up.

01/25/17DLVance WalkerKneeQUESTIONABLEWalker 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.

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.

01/02/17LBBrandon MarshallHamstringQUESTIONABLEMarshall (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Marshall joins fellow key defenders T.J. Ward and defensive lineman Derek Wolfe on the inactive list in Sunday's season finale. The linebacker finishes the 2016 campaign with 52 tackles in 11 games.

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.
