Position Listing
Ryan Murphy
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
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
Adapting to the playing conditions in Denver is proven to be difficult. Newly-signed safety Darian Stewart isn't concerned by that one bit, according to ESPN.com.

Broncos strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson warns all the new arrivals that is that athletic life a mile above sea level is very different and much drier than other locations. 

Stewart got the picture.

“You dehydrate pretty quickly, so you definitely have to stay hydrated," Stewart said. “Being up here and getting acclimated to the weather has been good. It’s going to help me when we go down south to wherever we have to play at."

Regardless of the new conditions, Stewart, who started 14 games last season for the Ravens, believes he will be the top guy at his position when the season rolls around.

“It’s my position, it’s my position to lose," Stewart said. "When I line up, I feel like at this level you’ve got to have confidence. When I signed here, I knew it was my job … I’m feeling well. Last year I was feeling well and it’s all about just staying consistent.’’

Stewart recorded 53 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in 16 games last season.

Antonio Johnson
The Saints have formally declared that outside linebacker Davis Tull, running back Marcus Murphy and offensive lineman Antonio Johnson have non-football injuries as the team gears up for training camp. All three rookies, however, remain on the active roster.

Tull missed all of the OTAs and minicamp following labrum surgery in March. Players with pre-draft injuries are eligible to be placed on the non-football injury list. But it remains unclear what physical problems befell Murphy and Johnson, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Ryan Harris
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
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. 

Shoulder - Probable for Week 12 vs. New England
Demaryius Thomas
Thomas had three catches on a team-high eight targets for 59 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bears.

After scoring double-digit touchdowns in three consecutive seasons, Thomas came into Sunday's game with just one in the first nine games, but he was able to add to his total thanks to a 48-yard score in the first quarter on a pass from Brock Osweiler, who got the start in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs). The change to Osweiler allowed the Broncos to take more snaps under center, which helped the running game more than anything else, as they rushed the ball 36 times versus just 27 passes. Even with a drop in total throws, Thomas is still a popular enough target to keep him highly relevant in most fantasy formats. It is unclear if Manning will be able to return in Week 12 against the Patriots, though if Osweiler remains the starter, Thomas' fantasy upside is still high.

Corey Nelson
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Trevathan had 10 tackles Sunday against the Browns.

Trevathan has been a solid source of tackles lately, putting up 20 in the last two games, though he was limited to just five in the previous two games combined. He is a decent source of tackles, but he doesn't rush the passer much and hasn't had an interception since 2013.

Shane Ray
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
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is still nursing a foot injury, but he said Wednesday he'll be able to participate in training camp, reports the team's official website.

"I'll be back in training camp. That's what the word is," Marshall said. "I should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp. I'm not sure about everything else."

Marshall suffered a mid-foot sprain last season, which required two screws inserted into his foot during the offseason.

"I haven't really done a whole lot on it," Marshall said. "I do a lot more in the training room. My surgeon told me it will probably bother me a little bit throughout the whole year -- nothing to keep me out."

Andre Caldwell
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
Osweiler will get another start Sunday against the Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

As expected, Peyton Manning (foot/ribs) will miss a second straight game, with his status looking cloudy beyond Week 12. Osweiler played well in his first career start, completing 20 of 27 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's road win over the Bears.

Jordan Taylor
No Updates
Evan Mathis
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
James Ferentz
No Updates
Kapri Bibbs
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
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
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
C.J. Anderson
Anderson rushed 12 times for 59 yards and caught both of his targets for 13 receiving yards Sunday against the Bears.

Ronnie Hillman once again led the team in rushing, as he finished with 102 yards on 21 carries, leaving Anderson is make due with a fairly limited number of touches. One big difference Sunday was that Brock Osweiler, starting in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs) took a vast majority of the snaps under center, making it much easier for Hillman and Anderson to run as opposed to doing so out of the shotgun or pistol formations that Manning uses so often. Manning is reportedly pressing to return in Week 12 against the Patriots, which would obviously have an impact on the running game. Then again, it's a very tough matchup no matter the quarterback, as the Patriots came into Sunday allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

Chris Harris
The Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris have agreed on a five-year contract extension worth $42.5 million, the Denver Post reports.

The two sides opened contract talks last month but a deal appeared to be on life support before general manager John Elway became personally involved in the discussions. Harris ranks as the No. 1 cornerback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus, and passers have managed just a 46.9 quarterback rating when challenging the Denver cornerback. He's also been in the top 10 of the same rating system among all cornerbacks in 2012 and 2013.

Jeff Heuerman
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.

Knee - IR. Out for season
Kyle Williams
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. 

Achilles - IR. Out for season
Peyton Manning
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.

When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.

Foot - Out for Week 12 vs. New England
Brandon McManus
McManus connected on his lone field-goal attempt, a 24-yarder, and hit both of his PATs during Sunday's 17-15 win over the Bears.

After hitting multiple field goals in five of the first seven games, McManus is just 2-for-2 over the last three weeks, adding six PATs. The offense moved the ball much better Sunday with Brock Osweiler under center, though they'll likely have a tougher time in Week 12 against the Patriots, which may allow McManus a few more attempts.

Richard Gordon
The Chiefs are bringing back three players from the 2014 team. 

On Friday, the organization announced that they have re-signed receiver Jason Avant, tight end Richard Gordon and safety Kelcie McCray

Avant was picked up by the Chiefs during the 2014 season after the Panthers released him during the season. With both teams, Avant accounted for 353 yards and a touchdown. 

Gordon spent time with both the Titans and the Chiefs last season and did not record any offensive stats. 

McCray played in all 16 games for the Chiefs a year ago and recorded 11 tackles. 

Owen Daniels
Daniels (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, Daniels returned to full participation Friday. He should be fine for Sunday's game, but with Vernon Davis now in the mix at tight end, targets may be a bit harder to come by. However, Daniels still managed to log 56 snaps in a Week 11 win over the Bears.

Knee - Probable for Week 12 vs. New England
Tyler Polumbus
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
Broncos strong safety Omar Bolden was removed from Sunday's season opener against the Ravens with a foot injury. Bolden was ruled out from returning to the game.
Shaquil Barrett
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived linebacker Shaquil Barrett.
Ty Sambrailo
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. 

Aaron Brewer
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
Ware (back) won't play Sunday against the Patriots, the Denver Post reports.

On the plus side, Ware, who aggravated a previous back injury on Nov. 8, said Friday that he hoped he could practice by next Wednesday.

Back - Out for Week 12 vs. New England
Von Miller
Broncos linebacker Von Miller had four tackles and his second sack of the season Sunday against the Vikings.

Miller has picked up a sack in two of his last three games, but as long as he's defined as a linebacker in most fantasy formats, his fantasy IDP value is limited because he doesn't get nearly as many tackles as most other players at his position.

David Bruton
Broncos safety David Bruton Jr. said he felt OK after suffering a hip injury in Sunday's win over the Ravens, reports the team's official website. Bruton had to be helped off the field after sustaining the injury.

"I'll definitely be good," Bruton said.

Ryan Clady
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. 

Antonio Smith
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." 

Hip - Probable for Week 12 vs. New England
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, who is dealing with ankle and finger injuries, is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, the Denver Post reports.

Given the probable designation and the fact that Sanders practiced fully Friday, the wideout looks like a go for Sunday's 8:30 ET contest, in the absence of any unexpected pre-game setbacks.

Ankle, finger - Probable for Week 12 vs. New England
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.

Zaire Anderson
No Updates
Malik Jackson
Jackson had three tackles, including a sack, Sunday against the Browns.

Jackson has now picked up at least a half-sack in four of six games this season, recording 3.5 so far, putting him well on pace to best his career-high of six. That being said, he's a marginal fantasy IDP option given his low tackle totals (career-high of 42).

Kayvon Webster
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
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
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
Hillman rushed 21 times for 102 yards and caught his only target for two receiving yards Sunday against the Bears.

Hillman has now reached the 100-yard mark three times this season, though he still doesn't have a firm stronghold on the backfield, as C.J. Anderson rushed 12 times for 59 yards and caught both of his targets for 13 receiving yards. One major difference Sunday was that Brock Osweiler, starting in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs), took a vast majority of his snaps from under center, as opposed to Manning who constantly worked out of the shotgun or pistol formation. Hillman had previously indicated that he doesn't like running out of those formations, and it was clear Sunday that he is more productive when the quarterback is under center. The two will continue to share touches, though Hillman will get the first opportunities, and if he plays well, will get a majority of the carries. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against the Patriots, who came into Sunday allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

Britton Colquitt
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
Davis caught all six of his targets for a season-high 68 yards Sunday against the Bears.

The Broncos' coaching staff kept talking about getting Davis more involved in the passing game and it finally came to fruition Sunday with Brock Osweiler under center in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs). However, he wasn't the only tight end to get in on the action, as Owen Daniels caught four of five targets for a team-high 69 yards, as both got more looks thanks to Emmanuel Sanders' (toe/finger) absence. It's still too early to tell if Sanders will be available in Week 12, or if Manning will return too for that matter, but the increase in usage for Davis is certainly encouraging from a fantasy perspective.

Virgil Green
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.

Finger - Probable for Week 12 vs. New England
Juwan Thompson
Thompson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Green Bay, the Broncos' official website reports.

Thompson's availability was never in much doubt, but with Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson both healthy, Thompson isn't assured of any snaps or touches. He has just three carries and one catch this season.

Derek Wolfe
The Broncos reinstated defensive end Derek Wolfe from the suspended list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Wolfe is set to resume playing after completing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Wolfe started all 16 games for the Broncos last season, but it remains to be seen if he will reclaim his starting job out of the gate.

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 had two catches on three targets for 22 yards and his first career touchdown Sunday against the Bears. He also rushed once for five yards.

Latimer got more snaps Sunday because Emmanuel Sanders was out with toe and finger injuries, and his chemistry with quarterback Brock Osweiler, who started in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs), was certainly more evident than what he had with Manning. Demaryius Thomas is still going to dominate the targets, regardless of who starts at quarterback, but Latimer is starting to slowly prove that he can be a serviceable option in the passing game. Sanders was a game-time decision Sunday and will need to practice a bit next week if he's going to be cleared to play in Week 12 against the Patriots, which could certainly limit Latimer's snaps.

Arthur Lynch
The Dolphins waived receivers Armon Binns and Ryan Spadola, tight end Brett Brackett, cornerback Steven Clarke, defensive end Rakim Cox, defensive tackle Cory Grissom and center Tyler Larsen. Miami also put defensive tackle A.J. Francis, running back Mike Gillislee and tight end Arthur Lynch on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
T.J. Ward
Ward was ejected from Sunday's game against the Chiefs for launching a helmet-to-helmet hit on wide receiver Jeremy Maclin while he tried to block on a run play, ESPN.com reports. Ward also took a swing at Maclin while they were on the ground, and he faces a suspension from the league.

The Broncos played Sunday's game without cornerback Aqib Talib, who was suspended after poking Colts tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye last Sunday. The Broncos were dominated Sunday, losing 29-13 in arguably quarterback Peyton Manning's worst game of his career. If Ward, who came into Sunday's game with 47 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in seven games this season, does get hit with a suspension, David Bruton could start in his place Week 11 against the Bears.

Christian Ponder
The Broncos plan to sign Ponder, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

With Peyton Manning out, initially Ponder will work as the team's No. 3 QB as he learns the team's offense. For now, he'll slot in behind Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian.
