Position Listing
Aqib Talib
News
The Broncos revamped their defense after ranking 22nd in points allowed (22.9) and 19th in total yards (356.0).

They added defensive end DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and cornerback Aqib Talib. They drafted corner Bradley Roby in the first round. And they'll benefit from Von Miller being in better shape.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.

Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.

Demaryius Thomas
News
Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught five of his seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

Thomas hauled in a 12-yard pass near the end of the first half to put the Broncos up 21-1, but the Broncos couldn't get much done on offense in the second half, though they did hang on for a win to move to 2-0. Thomas caught just four of his 11 targets in Week 1 but had a much better game Sunday, despite the offense being limited to 26 pass attempts. He could be looking at a matchup with Richard Sherman next Sunday when the Broncos travel to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.

Orlando Franklin
News
Broncos general manager John Elway has been pleased with Orlando Franklin's move from right tackle to left guard, reports the Denver Post.

"Orlando's been good," Elway said. "He's still raw. Anytime you make that change, it's going to take some time to get adjusted to it. He's smart enough and athletic enough that I think he'll be able to make that change."

Corey Nelson
News
The Broncos on Monday signed two players selected in the 2014 NFL Draft, center Matt Paradis from Boise State and linebacker Corey Nelson from Oklahoma.

Paradis appeared in 35 career games (27 starts) for Boise State, opening every game at center for the Broncos during his last two seasons. He earned second-team All-Mountain West Conference accolades and was named the school’s Outstanding Offensive Lineman following his senior campaign in 2013.

Nelson saw action in 45 games (27 starts) during his career at Oklahoma and collected 153 tackles (75 solo) to go along with 17.5 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, one interception and one fumble recovery. He received second-team All-Big 12 Conference recognition following his junior season in 2012 before missing the majority of his senior year with a pectoral injury.

Isaiah Burse
News
 Of the four players listed on the injury report from the offensive side of the ball for the Broncos, only one is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Colts in Week 1.

Guard Ben Garland (ankle) has already been ruled out, while wide receivers Isaiah Burse (illness) and Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) are joined by guard Louis Vasquez (back) as probable for the game. 

Quinton Carter
News
The Broncos placed third-year safety Quinton Carter on injured reserve with a knee injury. He also went on IR with a knee problem last year after playing in three games on defense and special teams.

Montee Ball
News
Broncos running back Montee Ball rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries and gained 29 yards while catching all three of his targets in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

The Broncos had the ball for less than 24 minutes and were held under 50 offensive plays thanks in large part to a 10-minute drive by the Chiefs to open the second half. Otherwise, Ball surely would have seen more work in the second half with the Broncos up. He out-touched backup C.J. Anderson 15-5 in the win.

Ball looked better with the ball against the Chiefs than he did in Week 1, averaging five yards per rush after falling short of three yards per rush in his first game. He faces a tough matchup in Week 3, with the Broncos heading to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.

Mitch Unrein
News
The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.

Williams' sack was the first of his career, while Phillips' was his 10th of the season. 

Ben Garland
News

According to Pro Football Focus, Marshall missed only one tackle.

Andre Caldwell
News
The Broncos got several offensive contributions in their Week 1 win over the Colts. Backup running back C.J. Anderson ran four times for 27 yards, wideout Andre Caldwell caught two of five targets for 16 yards, and tight end Virgil Green had an 8-yard catch.
Zac Dysert
News
Brock Osweiler
News
The Broncos fully expect Peyton Manning to be under center in 2014, but they were reassured by what they saw from 23-year-old backup Brock Osweiler. Getting his most extended playing time in the regular-season finale at Oakland, the second-year pro completed 9 of 13 passes for 85 yards.

"I was pleased to see Brock's performances in the preseason get better in each game, and then he played a pretty good second half against Oakland in the last regular season game, and I feel like he's making progress," offensive coordinator Greg Knapp told the team's website.

Coach John Fox said Osweiler is "way further ahead this year than he was a year ago. I think he’s got a comfort level. Of course, the time he spends with Peyton, I think, is a great benefit. But he’s smart, he’s got all the athletic tools and now it’s just a matter of getting opportunities to play the game."

Jacob Tamme
News
The Broncos got several minor offensive contributions in their Super Bowl loss. Tight end Julius Thomas caught four of six targets for 27 yards, and tight end Jacob Tamme had two catches for 9 yards.

Running back Montee Ball was held to 1 yard on six carries, and he caught two balls for 2 yards. Running back C.J. Anderson carried twice for 9 yards and added a 14-yard catch.

Lerentee McCray
News
Broncos linebacker Lerentee McCray is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a knee injury, USA Today Sports reports. McCray is a sub linebacker for the Broncos on the outside, so the team may have to lean more on starter Von Miller with the backup sidelined.
Injury
Knee - Left Week 2 vs. Kansas City
Tony Carter
News
The Broncos have announced that the following players will be inactive for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Chiefs: safety David Bruton Jr., wide receivers Cody Latimer and Tony Carter, guard Ben Garland, offensive tackle Michael Schofield and linebacker Danny Trevathan.

Special teamer Bruton was questionable with a shoulder injury. Garland was doubtful with an ankle issue. Trevathan will miss a few more weeks while recovering from a broken ankle.

Matt Paradis
News
C.J. Anderson
News
Broncos running back C.J. Anderson picked up 31 yards on five carries in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.

Despite Ronnie Hillman being active Sunday, Anderson ran as Montee Ball's clear backup, getting five touches while Hillman didn't receive a carry or target. For the second straight week, Anderson did well with his limited opportunity. He has racked up 58 yards on just nine carries through two games, but he should have much more trouble succeeding against a tough Seattle defense in Week 3.

Chris Harris
News
The Broncos should have at least six players listed on the injury report for Week 2.

Linebacker Danny Trevathan is the only player to be ruled out for the game. Guard Ben Garland is doubtful, and safety David Bruton Jr. is considered questionable heading into the game.

The Broncos did list six players as probable, and should have them available Sunday. Ryan Clady, Chris Harris Jr., Nate Irving, Manny Ramirez, DeMarcus Ware and Kayvon Webster should all play Week 2.

Nathan Palmer

The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
Matt Prater
News
Broncos kicker Matt Prater, the league's second-leading scorer last year, has been notified he'll be suspended for the first four regular-season games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Prater has been in the league's alcohol program since he was charged with DUI in 2011. His attorney, Harvey Steinberg, told the Denver Post that Prater got suspended for drinking a few beers at home. "[Matt] feels terribly for his teammates," Steinberg said. "It's cost him personally, both professionally and financially."

Prater nailed 25 of 26 field-goal attempts last year, including a record-breaking 64-yarder against Tennessee. Rookie Mitch Ewald is his backup.
Injury
Suspension - Eligible to return Week 6 at N.Y. Jets
Zach Thompson
News

Those on offense are quarterback Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms, wide receivers Clyde Gates and Stephen Hill, running backs Daryl Richardson and Alex Green, tight end Chris Pantale, linemen Brent Qvale and Caleb Schlauderaff.

The defenders imclude defensive backs Rontez Miles, Jeremy Reeves, Johnny Patrick, Dimitri Patterson and Brandon Dixon, linemen Zach Thompson, Kerry Hyder and Tevita Finau and linebackers Garrett McIntyre and A.J. Edds.

Linebacker Antwan Barnes has been placed on the PUP list.

Peyton Manning
News
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning went 21 for 26 with 242 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Denver's 24-17 win over Kansas City.

Manning focused on the tight ends in the red zone in the first quarter, connecting on his first touchdown with Julius Thomas before hitting Jacob Tamme for a wide-open four-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. He capped off the first half with a 12-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas for his third touchdown. He finished the half 15 for 19 with 191 yards against the Chiefs' decimated defense but couldn't get much done in the second half.

Manning has passed for a slightly-disappointing 501 yards over his first two games but has racked up six touchdowns without throwing a pick. He faces a big road test in Week 3 when the Broncos travel to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.

Brandon McManus
News
Broncos kicker Brandon McManus converted his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra points in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs in Week 2.

McManus didn't receive a field-goal try until late in the game, hitting from 20 yards out to extend the team's lead to seven points late in the fourth quarter. He's converted two short field-goal attempts in two weeks while filling in for Matt Prater. The Broncos travel to Seattle in Week 3.

Wes Welker
News
Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, who was reinstated Wednesday after serving two games of his suspension, returned to practice. Prior to being suspended for four games right before the start of the season, Welker was recovering from a concussion he suffered in the preseason.
Julius Thomas
News
Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught four of his five targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

Thomas grabbed a TD on the team's first offensive drive on a play to the back left corner of the end zone. It was his second catch of the drive, and he would tally only two more over the rest of the day. He even saw positional mate Jacob Tamme score a touchdown later in the game. It was a solid day for Thomas after exploding for 104 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1. He'll take on the Seahawks in Week 3.

Greg Latta
News
The Broncos waived defensive end Greg Latta, who's been out with a hip injury.

Barrow is expected to be a reserve linebacker this season and play on special teams.

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders led the team in receiving in Week 2, catching eight of his nine targets for 108 yards in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs.

Sanders racked up 48 yards on the first play from scrimmage and continued to be a key option for Peyton Manning, leading the offense in targets despite not securing one of the team's three touchdowns. He may have a tougher time finding a large amount of targets moving forward, as Wes Welker could return to action in Week 3 pending a potential agreement by the league and the NFLPA.

Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe, who suffered a seizure in November, said he's finally healthy and ready to resume his career, reports ESPN.com. "I'm ready to go. I'm going to be better than I was," said Wolfe, who has regained 20 of the 30 pounds he lost and is up to 280. 

Doctors believe the seizure stemmed from a spinal cord injury Wolfe suffered in the preseason, the report said. "I had a bruise on my spinal cord," he said. "I thought it was fully healed and I came back a little too soon and I just kept hitting it, kept hitting it, kept hitting it. And it screwed my nervous system up a little bit, just kind of crisscrossed the wires a little bit.

"And really just mentally, it was hard to deal with because I didn't know what was going on and why I was losing weight and all this, and my adrenals weren't functioning right, nothing was really working right and what it came down to was I needed to let it heal, I needed to let myself heal. So, I took about two months and I just did nothing. And I feel better than I've ever felt before."

The Broncos revamped their defense after ranking 22nd in points allowed (22.9) and 19th in total yards (356.0).

They added defensive end DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and cornerback Aqib Talib. They drafted corner Bradley Roby in the first round. And they'll benefit from Von Miller being in better shape.

Last year's No. 13 Fantasy DST should finish as a Top-10 unit this year. But the group might not mesh right away. And Sunday night's game against the Colts, with a whopping over/under of 55, is going to be a shootout.

Indy gave up the 11th-fewest Fantasy points to DSTs last year (7.56 per game). Sit the Broncos DST in Week 1, if you can, then start the unit Week 2 in a much more attractive matchup against Kansas City.

Cody Latimer
News
The Broncos have announced that the following players will be inactive for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Chiefs: safety David Bruton Jr., wide receivers Cody Latimer and Tony Carter, guard Ben Garland, offensive tackle Michael Schofield and linebacker Danny Trevathan.

Special teamer Bruton was questionable with a shoulder injury. Garland was doubtful with an ankle issue. Trevathan will miss a few more weeks while recovering from a broken ankle.

Rahim Moore

The revamped Broncos DST pressured Colts quarterback Andrew Luck into some mistakes Week 1. The unit hit Luck six times, getting 1.5 sacks from defensive end DeMarcus Ware and another sack from linebacker Nate Irving.

Safety Rahim Moore intercepted a pair of deflected passes. Linebacker Brandon Marshall, replacing the injured Danny Trevathan, made a game-high 10 tackles, two for loss, and broke up a pass. Denver stuffed Luck on a 4th-and-goal sneak attempt from the 1.

The rejuvenated Broncos DST gets a juicy matchup Week 2 when the Chiefs visit Denver.
