Position Listing
Aqib Talib
Talib tallied two tackles and two passes defended in Sunday's win over Indianapolis. He put the Broncos ahead by two scores with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Talib has long been respected for his ball skills, but he's now entering rarefied air. The pick six was Talib's fifth as a Bronco - setting a team record in just 32 regular season games. It also marked the ninth of his career, tying him for fourth all time with Pro Football Hall of Famers Deion Sanders, Ken Houston and Aeneas Williams.

Darian Stewart
Stewart was fined $18,231 for roughing the passer during Week 1's regular season opener against the Panthers, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

Stewart's illegal hit on Panthers quarterback Cam Newton warranted the minimum fine amount for a first offense in 2016. The free safety will look to put the issue behind him as he prepares for a Week 2 tilt against the Colts.

Kyle Peko
No Updates
Vance Walker
Walker 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.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Riley Dixon
No Updates
Demaryius Thomas
Thomas hauled in five of 10 targets for 35 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers. He also lost a fumble.

Thomas not only turned in a largely inefficient night on the stat sheet, but also had a key fumble at the Chargers' 27-yard line with 3:43 remaining after gaining 13 yards on a reception. The Broncos trailed 21-10 at the time, making the miscue particularly untimely. The 10 targets Thomas saw were his most to date, but were only parlayed into a season-low 35 yards. The veteran wideout's YPC has also notably been in the single digits for two straight games, after he'd managed no less than 12.0 in that category in the first four weeks of the season. Thomas is still obviously a focal point of the offensive attack, however, and will try to bounce back against the Texas in Week 7.

Corey Nelson
Nelson (ankle) is active for Sunday's tilt with the Bengals.

Nelson serves as a reserve linebacker behind Brandon Marshall so it isn't likely he sees the field too much on Sunday, but his active status is a reassuring sign for the team.

Max Garcia
No Updates
Henry Krieger Coble
No Updates
Trevor Siemian
Siemian (shoulder) completed 30 of 50 passes for 230 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers. He also gained a yard on one rush.

Siemian easily set a career high in pass attempts in a game in which the Broncos never held a lead. However, he averaged a paltry 4.6 yards per attempt while also taking a pair of sacks, although he did encouragingly stay away from turning the ball over. Siemian hasn't thrown an interception since Week 2 versus the Colts and has now completed a stellar 64.9 percent of his 151 pass attempts on the season. He's certainly been serviceable enough to win with, but couldn't generate consistent offense Thursday against a vulnerable Chargers secondary despite the return of starting tight end Virgil Green (calf). Siemian and the Broncos will look to rebound from their two-game losing streak when they take on the Texans in a showdown on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Jordan Norwood
Norwood tallied five catches on seven targets for 39 yards, 46 yards on two kick returns and 16 yards on a pair of punt returns in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers.

The veteran was surprisingly second on the Broncos with seven targets, which also represented his season best in that category by far. Norwood's modest 39-yard output was also a high-water mark on the campaign, but it's important to note that the added involvement came on a night when Trevor Siemian threw a career-high 50 passes. Norwood has failed to record a catch in two other contests this season, so his limited fantasy value will continue to mainly stem from his special teams work.

Sylvester Williams
The Broncos have decided not to exercise Williams' fifth-year option, the Denver Post reports.

The move isn't a total surprise given the cap gymnastics general manager John Elway will have to go through in the coming years to keep more prominent players in Denver. Williams contributed three sacks to the Broncos' 2015 pass rush as he put together his best season under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and line coach Bill Kollar. If he takes another step, Williams could still see a payday in 2017. If not, 2015 sixth-rounder Darius Kilgo and reclamation project Phil Taylor could emerge.

Billy Turner
Turner was released on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Turner was a depth lineman in the Dolphins' offensive scheme so his absence shouldn't effect the team too heavily.

Quentin Gause
No Updates
Connor McGovern
McGovern (coach's decision) is inactive for the Broncos' Week 2 matchup with the Colts, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

A reserve lineman, McGovern is simply a healthy scratch in this one.

Taurean Nixon
Nixon has a chance to be a depth corner for the Broncos if he finishes the preseason strong, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

Nixon was Denver's seventh round pick in 2015, but he didn't dress for a single game during his rookie season. As training camp winds down, Nixon will have a chance to earn a 53-man roster spot if he can perform well in the team's preseason finale, Thursday against Arizona.

Todd Davis
Danny Trevathan has left Denver to reunite with John Fox in Chicago, The Denver Post reports.

Davis stepped in in Week 14 when Trevathan sat out with a concussion and also racked up two starts in 2014. He tallied 21 tackles and a fumble recovery as a backup in 2015. Trevathan's departure leaves the Broncos with only Davis, Brandon Marshall and Corey Nelson in the middle, so expect some activity in free agency or the draft. Until then, pencil Davis in as a starter opposite Marshall.

Paxton Lynch
Lynch completed 23 of 35 passes for 223 yards, one touchdown and a pick. He rushed for 18 yards, but fumbled twice, both recovered by the offense.

Lynch's uneven stat-line flatters what was a rough first start for the first-rounder. He didn't deliver is lone touchdown of the game until the game was all but over and he was constantly under fire, absorbing six sacks and many more hits. Some of those sacks were the product of Atlanta taking advantage of Denver's shuffled offensive line, but others were due to Lynch's inability to get rid of the ball quickly enough. There were points in the game where Lynch showed off the rocket arm and escapability that made him a top pick, but he did nothing to threaten Trevor Siemian's hold on the starting job once his shoulder heals.

Shane Ray
Ray posted a sack along with seven tackles Sunday against the Falcons.

Although he's been quiet in the majority of his games to start the season, he's had a pair of big games over his last three matchups. In Week 3, he sacked Andy Dalton three times while notching six tackles, and his second this week's contest brought him up to four on the season. The second-year player has exceptional ability to get to the quarterback, and he's potentially a high-upside option in IDP leagues.

Justin Simmons
Simmons (hand) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

Simmons was limited in practice all week, and although initial reports were encouraging, the reserve defensive back will not be able to go Sunday, leaving Darian Stewart as the only true free safety on the roster.

Brandon Marshall
Marshall was fined $24,309 for a hit on Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton during Thursday's season opener, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Marshall's fine for unnecessary roughness is the minimum amount for first offenses in 2016. The starting inside linebacker recorded six tackles (six solo) Week 1, and he'll look to have even more of an impact Sunday against the Colts as he puts the fine issue behind him.

Jordan Taylor
Taylor caught four of 10 targets for 109 yards and two scores in Thursday's preseason finale against Arizona.

Taylor and rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch just missed on at least one other deep throw - which could have potentially made Taylor's big night even bigger. Taylor has made a name for himself as a big-bodied deep threat, but his first touchdown was a simple curl route in which he shook off a tackle and picked up the additional 45 yards or so after the catch. It's hard to imagine Taylor not making the team at this point and contributing early in red-zone packages to take advantage of his long frame.

James Ferentz
No Updates
Kapri Bibbs
Bibbs, not last year's leading rusher Ronnie Hillman, has made Denver's 53-manroster, the Broncos' official site reports.

Money and special teams contributions likely made a difference in the decision between Bibbs and Hillman, but the youngster showed some ability on the ground. Bibbs' 138 preseason rushing yards led the team. He'll be third in the pecking order for carries behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker in what should be a run-heavy offense.

Russell Okung
Okung (concussion) is expected to play in Monday night's game against the Texans, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Okung was able to practice in a limited capacity both Friday and Saturday, so his expected active status Monday would complete his return from the concussion-like symptoms he experienced following Denver's Week 6 loss in San Diego.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
Billy Winn
The Browns traded defensive lineman Billy Winn to the Colts for a conditional 2017 draft pick, according to NFL.com.
Matt Paradis
C.J. Anderson
Anderson gained 37 yards on 10 carries and hauled in four of five targets for 34 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers.

The trend of rookie Devontae Booker eating into Anderson's touches once again manifested itself Thursday, with the latter seeing his carries drop for the second straight week. On the plus side, he equaled a season high in receptions, but Booker looked to be quicker and more decisive overall, something that certainly didn't escape the attention of the Broncos' coaching staff. It's impossible to predict how the Denver backfield will shake out week to week and the team's run-heavy approach is likely to afford both backs a decent workload. However, given Booker's emerging play, as well as the fact that Anderson has averaged 3.7 yards per carry or less in all but one contest this season, the latter's days as a primary back may be in the past.

Chris Harris
Harris recorded two tackles, three passes defended and a pick in Thursday's win over Carolina.

If Graham Gano's kick was true, Harris would have been the goat of the game after picking up a penalty on fourth and forever earlier in the drive. Instead, Harris will be remembered as one of they key reasons Denver won the contest with his sticky coverage and bat-and-pick that set up the Broncos' go-ahead score. The diminutive corner batted a pass intended for 6-foot-5 receiver Kelvin Benjamin and laid out for the interception deep in Carolina territory.

Jeff Heuerman
Heuerman (groin) is without a Week 5 injury designation after fully practicing Friday.

Heuerman was limited during Thursday's session to ensure his availability going into the weekend, when injuries to both Virgil Green (calf) and John Phillips (groin) leaves Denver's tight end situation in question. Although the rookie third-rounder has managed just one catch in both of his appearances this season, the Broncos' injuries at his position could seemingly help his fantasy stock Sunday against the Falcons.

John Phillips
Phillips was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

A week after getting involved in the action with a score, Phillips went catchless for the third time in four games this season. Of more concern, he played just one more offensive snap than youngster Jeff Heuerman, 29 to 28. Expect the veteran's role to continue to be reduced as Heuerman finds his footing and starter Virgil Green nears his return from a calf injury.

Brandon McManus
McManus converted all three of his field-goal attempts as well as his only PAT in the Broncos' loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

The Denver offense wasn't on point Sunday with rookie Paxton Lynch under center, but McManus was able to remain relatively productive. Two of his kicks came from over 40 yards out with his longest coming from 46, and he's now tied for 7th in the league in field goals made. However, McManus has only attempted one kick from 50-plus this season, which may prevent him from joining the upper-echelon of fantasy kickers until further notice.

Casey Kreiter
The Cowboys have signed long snapper Casey Kreiter, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Kreiter, 24, was cut by the team last August. He has yet to see the field in the NFL.

Vontarrius Dora
No Updates
Donald Stephenson
Chiefs coach Andy Reid made the announcement Monday former No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher is moving from left tackle to right tackle to begin the 2015 season. Donald Stephenson is taking over at left tackle for Kansas City.

“We’re going to play the five best, and Fish gives us a whole lot of flexibility, he can play any position on the offensive line, and play at Pro Bowl caliber,” Reid said, per The Kansas City Star.

Shaquil Barrett
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived linebacker Shaquil Barrett.
Jared Crick
Crick might be the first man up to replace starter Vance Walker - who is out for the year with a torn ACL, team's official site reports.

Crick was drafted during the Gary Kubiak/Wade Phillips regime while they were all in Houston - so the familiarity is there. While neither coach's tenure lasted long enough to see Crick become a starter, defensive line coach Bill Kollar did coach Crick during his first year as a starter in 2014. Crick accumulated 104 tackles and 5.5 sacks in his last two years in Houston and his understanding of the defense could prove invaluable in stepping in and replacing Walker.

Kalif Raymond
Raymond was waived by the Broncos on Friday, Mike Kils of 9news reports.

The undrafted-rookie was looking to secure one of the Broncos final receiver spots but he appears to have been the seventh or eighth option for the team. He'll be a candidate for the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Steven Scheu
No Updates
Shiloh Keo
Keo resigned with the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News.com reports.

Keo rejoins the team just a few days after they parted ways. The safety was suspended for the first two weeks of the season but is now able to take the field again. He'll compete with rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks for a backup safety position.

Suspension - Suspended for two games
Ty Sambrailo
Sambrailo (elbow) is hoping to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Bengals, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

Sambrailo has missed the first two games of the season with an elbow injury, but is nearing a return to the field. Fellow offensive lineman Donald Stephenson is expected to miss multiple weeks with a calf injury, so Sambrailo's return is much needed and he could be called upon to move into the starting lineup once healthy. We should see his status updated again later in the week.

DeMarcus Ware
Ware (forearm) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Texans.

Ware was not expected to be able to return this week, so the designation comes as no surprise. The veteran has been held out since suffering a fracture in his right forearm Week 2, and will look to return Week 8 against the Chargers, though he will need to be able to participate in practice before doing so. Look for Shane Ray to get the start in Ware's place.

Forearm - Out for Week 7 vs. Houston
Austin Davis
The Broncos signed Davis on Saturday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Recently cut by the Browns, Davis will slot into Mark Sanchez's spot on the quarterback depth chart behind starter Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch.

Von Miller
Miller posted six tackles in addition to recording a sack in Week 6.

Miller has registered at least half a sack in each game this season, and he now has 7.5 on the season, giving him a legitimate chance to hit 20 by the end of the year. Although it's early in the campaign, he's an early front-runner for defensive player of the year honors.

Darius Kilgo
No Updates
Michael Schofield
Broncos offensive lineman Michael Schofield is ready to come in and compete for a starting job this season, reports the Denver Post.

After not dressing for a single game as a rookie, Schofield added weight and he looks forward to fighting for a starting job.

"I am going in there with that mentality. In the NFL everybody is competing," Schofield said during a road trip to see family in Illinois. "They are looking for someone to step up and take over. I want to make that jump."

The third-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2014 struggled with weight issues, but he is now up to 305 pounds. He also recognized that his pass protection needs improvement.

"Personally, I felt there were reasons I wasn't out there (for games). I wasn't consistent enough in pass pro (protection). And my weight was really fluctuating," Schofield said.

Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak believes that the team's zone-blocking scheme can help Schofield elevate his game, and Schofield agrees.

"We like the Schofield kid, so we'll see. We think he's got some flexibility (in where he can play)," Kubiak said. "It will be very competitive."

"I feel like I am better suited for this," Schofield said. "You have to be able to reach block, and I feel the steps required fit me better."

Dillon Day
No Updates
Emmanuel Sanders
Sanders (hip) practiced fully Thursday.

Sanders sustained a hip injury back in the Broncos' Oct. 13 tilt against the Chargers, but his full practice participation Thursday puts him in line to be a go for Monday night's game against Houston.

Sam Brenner
The Dolphins made a flurry of roster moves Monday, which included the release of running back Jonas Gray. To take Gray's spot on the roster, the Dolphins signed rookie running back/kick returner Raheem Mostert.

The Dolphins also released center Sam Brenner and running back LaMichael James, while signing center Jacques McClendon and promoting tight end Jake Stoneburner from the practice squad.

Concussion - Injured Reserve
Zaire Anderson
No Updates
Justin Murray
No Updates
Kayvon Webster
Webster (hamstring) is active for the Broncos' Week 6 tilt against the Chargers.

Webster had been listed as questionable after sitting out Week 5 with his hamstring issue. He'll return to his usual role as a special team's player and depth corner.

Dekoda Watson
Watson registered four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Saturday's preseason win over the Rams.

The former journeyman middle linebacker has found his calling on the outside this preseason, racking up four sacks and a safety this preseason. Outside rusher is arguably Denver's deepest position with Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray all locks to make the team. Watson is likely in their company. The Broncos carried five outside linebackers last season and the team could use additional depth in an effort to keep Ware fresh during the season.

Lorenzo Doss
The Broncos have signed rookie cornerback and fifth-round selection Lorenzo Doss .

The Tulane product was quite the ball-hawk in college. He intercepted 15 passes over the past three seasons.

Bennie Fowler
Fowler didn't make a catch, but was targeted three times in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

Fowler just missed a big play in the closing seconds of the first half. Rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch found him down the seam in tight coverage and Fowler was able to put his hands on it, but failed to bring it in. Fowler converted similar opportunities last year and is likely just getting back into the hang of things after missing most of the preseason with a fractured elbow. It's not too late for him to make a big impact, with the none of his teammates quite stepping up to claim the Broncos' No. 3 receiver role.

Andy Janovich
Janovich rumbled for a 28-yard touchdown in his lone carry of Thursday night's win over Carolina.

The Broncos ran a fullback dive on third and short in the second quarter simply in an attempt to pick up the first. After a missed tackle and a little wiggle, however, Janovich was off to the races. The rookie fullback probably wasn't the safest bet to score the team's first touchdown of the season, or to score many more, but head coach Gary Kubiak has long valued the position and has featured it far more prominently in his offense. Don't be surprised if more is in store for this year's sixth-round pick.

Adam Gotsis
Gotsis (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.

Virgil Green
Green (calf) hauled in three of four targets for 21 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers.

Green returned to the field after missing the last three games, but like the rest of his offensive teammates, couldn't generate much production. The tight end's involvement figures to see an uptick in coming weeks as he reintegrates into the offense. Green had encouragingly averaged 15.3 yards on his three catches in Week 2 versus the Colts, his last game prior to Thursday's.

Devontae Booker
Booker could receive additional work moving forward, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. "We've got to give Book some opportunities, he's doing some good stuff," head coach Gary Kubiak said Monday. "When he's had the opportunities he's done some really good things. As a young player we're trying to get him going as far as protections and those type of things and he's starting to handle himself better."

Since a brief three-carry showing in Week 1, Booker's touches have ranged between five and 10 per game over the last five outings, averaging 4.9 YPC and gathering in eight of 11 passes for 65 yards. Meanwhile, No. 1 running back C.J. Anderson hasn't reached 4.0 YPC or 100 yards from scrimmage in any contest during that stretch. Due to the four-year, $18 million investment made in Anderson in the offseason, he likely isn't in danger of losing his job, but Booker appears deserving of an expanded role, at the very least.

Juwan Thompson
Thompson was added to Denver's practice squad Sunday.

Thompson has shown that he can produce at the NFL level, but given the Broncos' depth at running back, the 24-year-old will have to at least begin the season on as a member of the practice squad. Thompson accrued one start last season, but the three-year vet only totaled 48 yards on the year. There is a chance that Thompson will make his way on Denver's active roster during 2016.

Derek Wolfe
Wolfe registered 1.5 tackles along with four tackles Sunday against the Colts.

Wolfe came into the game with a neck injury, but he was just fine as he helped the Broncos harass Andrew Luck all afternoon. He had a great year in 2015 playing in Wade Phillips' defense, as he was in the top-10 in tackles among defensive linemen. He certainly has room to improve as part of an elite defense.

Will Parks
No Updates
Bradley Roby
The Broncos could be changing course on how they want to use 2014 first-round pick Bradley Roby on defense. 

Drafted as a cornerback out of Ohio State, the Broncos are considering moving Roby to free safety, general manager John Elway said, via The Denver Post

"He can tackle he's tough and that safety has to be a cover guy there," Elway said. "There are a lot of different combinations you need to play because the game is changing. Instead of having a strong safety, you want both of them to play center field."

Roby had 65 tackles and two interceptions as a rookie in 2014. 

Cody Latimer
Latimer -- who recently cleared the league's concussion protocol -- is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Texans.

Although Latimer was able to clear the league's concussion protocol earlier in the week, but was unable to practice until Saturday, when he did so on a limited basis. His status is very much up in the air at this point, but more will be known regarding Latimer's situation as game-time nears.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Houston
T.J. Ward
Ward collected eight tackles and forced and recovered a fumble in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Ward latched onto a Mohamed Sanu reception and tore it away for his second forced fumble in as many weeks. The enforcer safety, who is often deployed in a hybrid linebacker role, is second on the team with 27 tackles through five weeks - just one behind linebacker Brandon Marshall.
