  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Designated to return from IR

    Ojemudia (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Ojemudia has yet to see game action in 2021 after suffering an injury during the preseason. The move opens a 21-day practice window during which he can be activated at any point before reverting to injured reserve for the rest of the season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Ojemudia (hamstring/illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Ojemudia tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in November but has now cleared the league's health and safety protocols. However, the cornerback will remain on injured reserve as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Ojemudia (hamstring) tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ojemudia is also dealing with a hamstring injury and has yet to play this season. The 2020 third-round selection will try to get healthy so he can take the field in 2021.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Lands on IR

    The Broncos placed Ojemudia (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Ojemudia's hamstring injury wasn't expected to be that serious, but he will start the season on injured reserve anyway. He has to spend a minimum of three weeks on IR before being eligible to return.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Suffers hamstring injury

    Ojemudia (hamstring) is considered week-to-week but should be OK, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

    It was originally feared that Ojemudia suffered a knee injury in Saturday's 30-3 win over the Seahawks, but multiple sources indicate that the injury is related to his hamstring. The 23-year-old cornerback has had a solid training camp and preseason, but his playing time in the Denver defense likely will be limited going forward. The Broncos acquired Kyle Fuller, Ronald Darby and rookie Patrick Surtain this offseason, and this trio should see the majority of snaps in Denver's defensive backfield. Ojemudia's injury only muddies his situation more entering the 2021 season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Questionable with knee injury

    Ojemudia (knee) left Saturday's preseason contest against the Seahawks and is questionable to return, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    After undergoing minor knee surgery, Ojemudia was a full participant during Broncos' offseason work, but he appears to have suffered a setback during the preseason. The 2020 third-round pick had a productive rookie season, registering 62 tackles, six pass breakups and four forced fumbles. However, Denver acquired Ronald Darby, Kyle Fuller and Patrick Surtain this offseason, which will likely push Ojemudia to the outskirts of the depth chart.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: All clear at OTAs

    Ojemudia (knee) was a full participant during the Broncos' offseason work.

    Ojemudia underwent a minor knee surgery this offseason, so it's a good sign to see the Iowa product back on the field so quickly. The 2020 third-round pick recorded 62 tackles (55 solo), six pass breakups and four forced fumbles in his rookie campaign, as he looks to make a jump in his second NFL season. The team signed veterans Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller, and also drafted cornerback Patrick Surtain in the first round, so it's unclear what sort of role Ojemudia will have in the defense heading into 2021.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Set for knee surgery

    Ojemudia will undergo minor knee surgery in the near future, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    The 23-year-old played at least 75 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the final five games of the season, so it's unclear when he sustained the injury. Regardless, the minor surgery shouldn't significantly affect the rookie third-round pick's offseason work. Ojemudia finished the season with 62 tackles (55 solo), six passes defensed and four forced fumbles in 16 games.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Back to full health

    Ojemudia (quadriceps) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Ojemudia dealt with a moderate quadriceps issue during training camp, but he's managed to get fully healthy to begin the regular season. The rookie third-round pick doesn't have a clear path to a starting job with A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan in town, but he could handle a depth role during Monday's game against the Titans.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Set to miss time

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Ojemudia (quadriceps) will miss at least a week, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    The Broncos have a solid secondary but drafted Ojemudia in the third round of April's draft anyway, but missing more than a week in training camp could deflate his workload through the first couple of games. He wasn't going to be a top-two cornerback anyway with A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan on board.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Third-round selection for Denver

    The Broncos selected Ojemudia in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 77th overall.

    The Broncos have A.J. Bouye outside and Bryce Callahan in the slot, but Ojemudia should prove helpful on the outside. At 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, the former Iowa standout is a big corner with reach (32 and 1/4-inch arms) and plus athleticism (4.45-second 40-yard dash). The Iowa pass defense was tough throughout Ojemudia's college career, so he definitely checks a few boxes.
