Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Aqib Talib
News
Talib's one-game suspension stemming from his actions near the end of Sunday's loss at Indianapolis was upheld Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Talib interfered with an confrontation between teammate Von Miller and the Colts' Dwayne Allen, whose eye the cornerback poked in the process. Now that the suspension is confirmed, the Broncos will be without both Talib and DeMarcus Ware (back) on Sunday against the Chiefs. In Talib's place, the Broncos will turn to Bradley Roby at cornerback, while Kayvon Webster will cover nickleback.

Darian Stewart
News
Stewart (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

In advance of the season-ending tilt, Stewart was likely the most iffy of the Broncos' injured, but with two weeks to rest, he won't be denied by the sprained MCL sustained in the AFC championship game. While his tackle totals were modest from game to game, he was still involved in five turnovers this season (three fumbles and two interceptions).

Ryan Harris
News
The Broncos have agreed to terms on a contract with offensive tackle Ryan Harris, according to a report from ESPN. 

This move is a necessity now that left tackle Ryan Clady is likely lost for the season due to a torn ACL that he sustained in practice on Wednesday.

This move brings Harris back to the organization he started his NFL career with as he played with the Broncos, which drafted him in the third round, from 2007-2010. 

Harris was with the Chiefs a year ago and started 15 of the 16 games he appeared in. 

Vance Walker
News
Defensive tackle Vance Walker has signed a two-year contract worth $5 million with the Broncos, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Walker has played for the Falcons, Raiders and Chiefs. The 27-year-old has registered 138 total tackles and 10.0 sacks during his seven years in the NFL. 

Demaryius Thomas
News
Thomas secured one of six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The 28-year-old barely made his presence felt on the season's biggest stage, suffering a decrease in receptions for the third straight postseason game. Thomas' tough afternoon was a combination of the Josh Norman's tight coverage in the secondary and a lack of time for Peyton Manning on several occasions. He also took a hard hit from Luke Kuechly in the first quarter that may have had a lingering effect on the receiver the rest of the game. Thomas was able to draw a key fourth quarter third-down pass interference penalty in the end zone on Norman that gave Denver new life, and eventually led to C.J. Anderson's decisive one-yard touchdown. The six-year veteran will head into the offseason with more questions than usual following a pedestrian second half of the 2015 campaign, but still figures to slot in as Denver's No. 1 receiver to start the 2016 season.

Corey Nelson
News
The Broncos have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's game against the 49ers: running back Montee Ball (groin), wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, linebacker Shaquil Barrett, guard Ben Garland, tackle Michael Schofield and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein.

The Broncos are very healthy heading into Week 7, with Ball the only player on the active roster missing the game due to injury. All the team's players listed as probable on the final injury report are active, including running back Juwan Thompson (knee), linebacker Corey Nelson (hamstring), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and defensive backs Omar Bolden (groin), David Bruton (ankle) and Chris Harris (knee).

George Uko
News
Several injured Buccaneers have been placed on the inactive list for the Sunday game against New Orleans, including linebacker Mason Foster (Achilles). Also hurt and out are running back Robert Herron (hip), wide receiver Solomon Patton (foot) and cornerback Isaiah Frey (ankle).

Their healthy scratches are tackle Anthony Collins, running back Mike James and defensive end George Uko.

Max Garcia
No Updates
Trevor Siemian
News
Siemian will be the backup quarterback in Week 11 against the Bears, head coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday.

Siemian will be in uniform Sunday as Brock Osweiler gets his first start of the season in place of Peyton Manning, who will not play because of a torn plantar fascia in his right foot. Osweiler has long been considered the quarterback of the future in Denver, so while Siemian is one step closer to playing he has no chance of competing for the starting job if Osweiler avoids injury.

Jordan Norwood
News
Norwood (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs.

Norwood hasn't played since Week 6, though after putting in a full practice on Friday, it was looking as if he may have been on track to play. Look for Denver to continue to rotate their backup receivers to pick up the slack in Norwood's absence.

Sylvester Williams
News
The starting nose tackle position is open for the Broncos. But Sylvester Williams has apparently taken the lead in that battle.

Williams knows the territory. He started 13 of 16 games a year ago. He finished with 17 tackles and four assists.

"It's exciting because going into the offseason for the first time I'm pretty much a sure starter," he told 9News. "My coaches have shown a lot of confidence in me and given me the opportunities that I need, so it's up to me to take advantage of those opportunities."

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips certainly isn't complaining.

"I think 'Sly' has done an exceptional job," he said. "I feel real good about him. ... I think he's really taken over the nose guard position."

Kyle Roberts
No Updates
Taurean Nixon
News
The Broncos have announced the signing of four of their 2015 draft picks, including all three seventh-round compensatory selections.

Those include quarterback Trevor Siemian, cornerback Taurean Nixon and safety Josh Furman.

The other signed player is fourth-round offensive tackle Ty Sambrailo.

Todd Davis
News
Only two injured Broncos have been ruled out for the game Sunday against St. Louis. They are running back Ronnie Hillman (foot) and tight end Virgil Green (knee), who had been deemed doubtful.

The healthy scratches are wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, running back Kapri Bibbs, linebacker Todd Davis and offensive tackle Michael Schofield.

Danny Trevathan
News
Trevathan (concussion) is active Sunday against the Steelers.

After putting in a limited practice on Wednesday, Trevathan practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. He'll be back in the lineup at inside linebacker after missing last week's game. On the season, he has 83 tackles to go with a pair of interceptions.

Shane Ray
News
Ray (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Ray was limited to begin the week, but went through a full practice session Friday, making him likely to play this weekend. With DeMarcus Ware (back) out, having Ray available would figure to boost the Broncos' pass-rushing ranks.

Brandon Marshall
News
Marshall (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Marshall, who heads into Week 17 with 102 tackles in 15 games to date, will give it a go Sunday, but it remains to be seen how close to a full workload the linebacker will see in the Broncos' regular season finale.

Andre Caldwell
News
As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.

Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. 

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout. 

Brock Osweiler
News
Osweiler (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and will serve as the Broncos' second-string quarterback in Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reports.

Osweiler's practice Friday was his first full session since injuring his knee during Denver's regular season finale. Although he's since lost his starting quarterback position to Peyton Manning, Osweiler will at least be available as the Broncos' backup Sunday versus the Steelers.

Jordan Taylor
No Updates
Evan Mathis
News
The Broncos signed two-time Pro Bowler Evan Mathis to a one-year deal on Tuesday, the team announced.

The deal that brought Mathis to Denver is worth $4 million.

Kenny Anunike
Injury
James Ferentz
No Updates
Kapri Bibbs
News
Bibbs has been promoted from the Broncos' practice squad.

He'll add depth at running back, and is at least worth keeping an eye on if he finds a way to take an active roster spot in Week 6 given the Broncos' struggles running the ball this season. C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman, and Juwan Thompson are currently ahead of Bibbs on the depth chart.

Louis Vasquez
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is active Week 9 against the Patriots.

Hillman was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. He was never really a candidate to sit. The team will also have Lamin Barrow, Omar Bolden, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon McManus, Juwan Thompson, Louis Vasquez and Kayvon Webster. All seven players were listed as probable coming into the contest. 

Lerentee McCray
News
Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and running back C.J. Anderson (ankle) are active for the game against Buffalo after being listed as probable.

Also suiting up for Denver are offensive tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (elbow), linebacker Lerentee McCray (illness), center Will Montgomery (knee), defensive end Quanterus Smith (ribs), cornerback Aqib Talib (hamstring), tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).

Matt Paradis
News
C.J. Anderson
News
Anderson gained 90 yards on 23 carries and scored a rushing touchdown, while also securing four of four targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The third-year pro was named the starter heading into the game and was the clear-cut workhorse on the day, earning 90 tough yards against a talented Panthers front seven. The 23 carries were by far a season high for Anderson, who tallied 234 yards over three postseason games. He ripped off his game-long 34-yard run in the second quarter on the second play following a Mike Tolbert fumble, and impressively muscled his way into the end zone late in the fourth quarter for the deciding touchdown following Von Miller's strip sack of Cam Newton. Anderson was once again productive in 2015 as part of a timeshare in the Denver backfield, and likely goes into the offseason set to compete with Ronnie Hillman for starting duties once again in 2016.

Cameron Jefferson
No Updates
Chris Harris
News
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Harris will play through his shoulder injury Sunday against the Patriots.

Per the report, Harris is dealing with a deep-tissue shoulder bruise. While the issue -- which is described as "not insignificant" -- is not expected to require offseason surgery, it's the sort of ailment that causes Harris pain while engaging in such daily activities as brushing his teeth. In any case, Harris' availability -- albeit at less than full strength -- will be a plus for the Broncos defense on Sunday, as the team's secondary tries to contain New England's Tom Brady-led offense.

Jeff Heuerman
News
Broncos rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman is making strides in his recovery from a torn ACL, the team announced via their website.

Heuerman -- a third-round pick in this year's draft -- hurt his knee back in May, but is making good progress on his way back from the injury.

"I wouldn't call them big strides," he said with a laugh on Thursday, "not literally, because they're actually pretty small strides—but I'm making progress."

Heuerman will likely miss the entirety of this upcoming season, but that hasn't put a damper in his recovery.

"Each day’s a bigger step, which it kind of sounds corny and it kind of sounds like I’m just saying that, but it really is," Heuerman said.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Kyle Williams
News
The Broncos placed wide receiver Kyle Williams on injured reserve, the team announced on Monday, two days after he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury at practice. 

Williams missed all of last season after suffering an injury at the end of Kansas City training camp. 

Injury
Achilles - IR. Out for season
Peyton Manning
News
Manning completed 13 of 23 passes for 141 yards and an interception in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers. He was also sacked five times and fumbled twice, losing one.

Unlike his first Super Bowl victory nearly a decade ago, Manning was much more of a secondary figure Sunday, largely managing the game while C.J. Anderson ran effectively and the Broncos defense wreaked havoc on Cam Newton and company. The five-time MVP's arm was not a liability, although Manning did not test it downfield often, with his longest completion going for only 25 yards. His one interception came with 4:23 left in the second quarter, when Manning failed to see the Panthers' Kony Ealy in front of Emmanuel Sanders at the Carolina 20-yard line. The miscue was notably Manning's first interception in his last 164 postseason passes. He also endured heavy pressure from an aggressive Panthers front, suffering five sacks and losing a fumble on a hit by Ealy at the Panthers 48-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Having now capped off a 2015 season marked by injury and persistent questions about his arm strength with a Super Bowl victory, the matter of Manning's willingness to play next season will remain a burning question until he addresses the matter definitively one way or the other. Further complicating the decision may be the fact that Manning has already been informed he will eventually need hip replacement surgery, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier this week.

Brandon McManus
News
McManus drilled both field-goal attempts and a pair of field goals during Sunday's AFC championship game victory versus the Patriots.

McManus is pacing the postseason leaderboard with 23 points, which was powered by five field goals made in the divisional round against the Steelers. Including playoffs, he's posted an 88.1-percent success rate in that realm, a mark that would rank ninth among all kickers that logged a full 16-game slate in the regular season. Nonetheless, he'll have his work cut out for him in Super Bowl 50 against a Panthers unit that conceded the second-fewest points per game to kickers (6.0) in 2015.

Nick Kasa
News
According to the team's official website, the following players are not expected to dress for the Raiders Friday night against Green Bay: Sebastian Janikowski, Taiwan Jones, D.J. Hayden, Chimdi Chekwa, Matt McCants, Lucas Nix, Justin Ellis, David Ausberry and Nick Kasa.
Owen Daniels
News
Daniels secured one of two targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The veteran tight end notably came up with an impressive 18-yard reception on the game's first play before essentially becoming a non-factor the rest of the way. The 33-year-old put together a solid season in his first Denver campaign, especially considering that he played with a physically compromised Peyton Manning and inexperienced Brock Osweiler. Daniels came close to duplicating his 2014 numbers in Baltimore, tallying 46 catches for 517 yards and three touchdowns. Under the Broncos' control for two more seasons, Daniels will likely be brought back in 2016 as an effective veteran insurance policy at tight end.

Tyler Polumbus
News
The Falcons signed offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus to a one-year contract, according to a report from ESPN.com.

Polumbus has played for the Broncos, Seahawks and Redskins in his career. With the Redskins, he played under Kyle Shanahan, who is now the offensive coordinator with the Falcons. 

In his career, Polumbus has totaled 57 starts in 98 games. 

Omar Bolden
News
Bolden (knee) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, USA Today's Lindsay Jones reports.

The Broncos' primary kick returner and a key reserve on defense, Bolden suffered a sprained PCL during Sunday's win over the Steelers. The Broncos may turn to Emmanuel Sanders or Andre Caldwell to hand kickoff returns against the Patriots on Sunday.

Injury

Shiloh Keo
News
The Texans cut safety Shiloh Keo and promoted safety Josh Aubrey from the practice squad, reports the Houston Chronicle.
Ty Sambrailo
News
With Ryan Clady sustaining a torn ACL on Wednesday, the Broncos put in rookie Ty Sambrailo at left tackle during Thursday's practice, according to the team's website

Sambrailo was selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Colorado State. If he's the guy the Broncos have to go to with, he will need to not play like a rookie immediately. 

"He's not a rookie anymore," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after practice. "As of today he's about a four-year veteran."

Michael Schofield, a 2014 third-round pick, still remains an option for the Broncos at left tackle. For now, it appears Chris Clark will stay at right tackle. 

Injury
Aaron Brewer
News
The Broncos have re-signed long snapper Aaron Brewer to a four-yeal deal Thursday, according to the team's official website. The deal will keep him with the team through 2018.

The former undrafted free agent has been with the Broncos for three years.  Since being signed, he's played on every punt, field goal and extra point snap.

DeMarcus Ware
News
Ware (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, the Denver Post reports.

Ware, who left the Broncos' regular-season finale against the Chargers with a knee injury, benefited from the team's first-round bye and his presence will remain an asset to a Denver pass rush that will take aim Sunday at Pittsburgh's banged-up signal-caller, Ben Roethlisberger.

Robert Myers
News
The Ravens have announced that they have signed guard Robert Myers, a fifth-round pick, as well as wide receiver and sixth-rounder Darren Waller.
Von Miller
News
Miller totaled six tackles (five solo), 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass defensed in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The five-year veteran's dominant afternoon rightfully secured him MVP honors, making him only the 10th defensive player to receive the award, and third linebacker overall. Miller's two strip-sacks of Cam Newton provided immeasurable benefit to a Broncos offense that would have otherwise been hard-pressed to piece together multiple lengthy drives. Miller's first knockdown of Newton directly led to Malik Jackson's fumble recovery for a touchdown and gave Denver a first quarter 10-0 lead, while his fourth-quarter sack set up the Broncos offense at the Panthers five-yard line following T.J. Ward's recovery of the fumble that Miller's hit triggered. The All-Pro linebacker also successfully defensed a pass to Jericho Cotchery in the first quarter, and was a formidable nuisance to an overmatched Panthers' line throughout the game. With unrestricted free agency on the horizon and one final and momentous piece of leverage under his belt, Miller is set for a considerable payday under a new multi-year agreement or at the very least, through the franchise tag that the Broncos have already indicated they'll utilize to retain him in a worst-case scenario.

David Bruton
News
Bruton (leg) was placed Tuesday on season-ending injured reserve, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

Bruton unknowingly played through a fractured fibula during Sunday's loss to the Steelers, but after a post-game MRI confirmed the extent of the injury, his season will come to an early end. With starting safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (hamstring) both still injured, the Broncos signed Shaun Prater on Tuesday.

Injury
Ryan Clady
News
The Broncos placed left tackle Ryan Clady on injured reserve due to a torn ACL on Sunday, the team announced. 

Clady tore his ACL this past Wednesday during an organized team activity practice. The Broncos signed Ryan Harris to the roster soon after announcing Clady sustained a season-ending injury. 

Injury
Antonio Smith
News
Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith is being investigated for child abuse, TMZ reported early Thursday morning. 

The investigation is related to "multiple incidents dating back to 2010" in the state of Texas, according to the person making the accusation against Smith. The case was filed in Colorado in November but was moved to Texas. 

Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey confirmed to TMZ that the child abuse division is handling the case against Smith but said that no charges have been filed.

Healey later told the Denver Post that his office has been investigating Smith for several weeks. 

"It is true that the county sheriff's office has received a complaint from an individual," he said. "They are, and have been, conducting an investigation. ... My office is working with the investigating agency to review their information and further their investigation. There is nothing imminent."

The Broncos released a statement regarding the matter, reading, "Last night, we became aware for the first time of an allegation involving Antonio Smith. We are now in the process of gathering more information."

Michael Schofield
News
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."

Emmanuel Sanders
News
Sanders secured six of eight targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The 28-year-old led Denver in targets and receptions, taking advantage of the fact that Josh Norman's attention was focused primarily on Demaryius Thomas. Sanders made several key receptions throughout the game, and was the Denver's leading receiver in the postseason with 16 receptions on 24 targets for 230 yards. With Thomas struggling late in the regular season and postseason, Sanders was arguably the more effective of the two over the second half of the 2015 campaign. Coming off a second consecutive 1,000-yard season, he figures to once again serve as a centerpiece of Denver's offensive attack next season.

Sam Brenner
News
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.

Jackson had five tackles, including two sacks during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Jackson started off the season very well, picking up 3.5 sacks in the first five games, but he hadn't gotten to the quarterback since Week 6 before Sunday's two-sack effort.

Kayvon Webster
News
Broncos backup cornerback Kayvon Webster won't play Sunday against host Detroit, per the Denver Post. He remains sidelined with an ankle injury sustained in Week 2.

Webster had been designated as doubtful Friday after two limited practices but was ruled out Saturday.

Lorenzo Doss
News
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
News
Broncos wide receiver Bennie Fowler caught the first passes of his NFL career Sunday against Detroit, reeling in all four of his targets for 50 yards.

An undrafted second-year man out of Michigan State, Fowler spent last season on Denver's practice squad, but made the team out of camp this year. He went unused in the first two weeks, but finished behind only Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in Week 3 wideout targets.

With Cody Latimer, Jordan Norwood and Andre Caldwell not much more than depth options, it could be that Fowler's working his way toward securing the No. 3 spot in the Denver wideout mix.

Ronnie Hillman
News
Hillman turned 11 carries into 16 yards and one catch (on two targets) into seven yards during Sunday's AFC championship game victory against the Patriots.

The Broncos have consistently fed Hillman all season, but he's surpassed 4.0 YPC just once over the last seven games (including playoffs). He hasn't exactly made up for it with touchdowns (one) or multiple catches in a given game (only three times), while C.J. Anderson has maintained relevance throughout. Nevertheless, Hillman has averaged over 14 touches per contest, meaning he's a fair bet to strike in Super Bowl 50.

Britton Colquitt
News
The Broncos have ruled running backs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) out for Sunday's game against Miami, according to Denver's final injury report for Week 12. The team also listed tight ends Virgil Green (calf) and Julius Thomas (ankle) as questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: David Bruton (ankle), Quinton Carter (knee), Ryan Clady (groin), Britton Colquitt (illness), Paul Cornick (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle) and Juwan Thompson (knee).

Vernon Davis
News
Davis did not see a pass come his way during Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Make it back-to-back crucial games to end the season during which Davis was not targeted. Davis fell out of favor after making some critical drops in Weeks 14 and 15. Davis probably has a better chance to rebound with Brock Osweiler at quarterback than Peyton Manning, as Manning and Davis had less than two weeks of practice together before Manning went down with an injury, limiting his time to build chemistry with the veteran tight end.

Virgil Green
News
Green was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

Juwan Thompson
News
Thompson (illness) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers, the Denver Post reports.

While Thompson's absence isn't much of a hit to fantasy players, it does impact the Broncos' backfield depth Sunday behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman.

Derek Wolfe
News
Wolfe signed a four-year contract extension with the Broncos on Friday.

Wolfe's new deal comes after he was suspended for this season's first four games, but came back and enjoyed the best campaign of his four-year career. To that point, Wolfe totaled 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 12 games played, emerging as a long-term option at defensive end along the way. With the ink drying on his new contract, Wolfe figures to enter Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers full of confidence.

Bradley Roby
News
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. 

Josh Bush
News
The Broncos elevated safety Josh Bush to the actie roster. The third-year pro had been on the team's practice squad for a month.
Cody Latimer
News
Latimer hauled in his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's AFC championship game win against the Patriots.

Active for 14 contests in his second NFL season, Latimer nonetheless earned 17 percent of the Broncos' offensive snaps, which translated to six catches (on 12 targets) for 59 yards and one touchdown. His share of those snaps diminished even more in the team's two playoff tilts to date -- 16 of 142 snaps, or 11 percent -- but he secured all three passes directed his way for 31 yards. Although he's unlikely to make a significant dent in the Super Bowl box score, stranger things have happened in the big game.

T.J. Ward
News
Ward (ankle) is active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

After the Broncos' starting safety tandem came out of the AFC championship game with injuries, there was some worry whether Ward and Darian Stewart (knee) would take the field in Super Bowl 50, but full practices Thursday and Friday put an end to those questions.
