  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Active for Week 4

    Jones (calf) is active for Sunday's contest against the Ravens.

    After being a full participant in practice to start the week, Jones landed on the injury report Friday. The 24-year-old defensive end has played 30-plus defensive snaps in all three games this season, but it's unclear if he will be on a snap limit due to the calf injury.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Lands on injury report

    Jones (calf) is considered questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Ravens, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

    Jones was not present on the team's injury report prior to Friday, as he was a full participant at practice all week. However, he appears to have tweaked something in his calf. Shamar Stephen would likely be in line to replace him at defensive end if he ends up being unable to suit up.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Does well in first season starting

    Jones finished the 2020 campaign with 41 tackles, 6.5 sacks and two passes defensed. 

    The addition of Jurrell Casey was supposed to squeeze the sophomore out of the starting lineup, but Casey went down for the season in Week 2 after suffering a biceps injury. Jones thereafter showed why the team had faith in him heading into the season, finishing third on the team with 6.5 sacks. A Vic Fangio favorite, Jones is likely to start along the defensive line in 2021 as the team figures to bring back only one of Casey and Shelby Harris.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Sack on Sunday

    Jones recorded three tackles (two solo) and a sack across 41 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

    Jones now has five sacks on the season, the third-highest total on the Broncos this season. Over the past four weeks, he has played in 67 percent of the defensive snaps, the highest total of any defensive end in Denver.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Rings up career-high nine stops

    Jones made nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Saints.

    Jones continues to establish himself as the team's starting defensive end, as he has registered a 58 percent snap share or better in six straight games. The Ohio State product has totaled 24 tackles and three sacks in that stretch, and he came through with a career high in stops in Week 12.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Picks up sack against Dolphins

    Jones recorded three tackles and a sack during Sunday's 20-13 win over Miami.

    The sack was Jones' second in his last three games, as the Broncos swarmed Tua Tagovailoa for six total sacks. Jones has made the most of his increased opportunities with both Jurrell Casey (biceps) and Shelby Harris (COVID-19) out of the lineup. Harris may return Sunday against the Saints, which should help prevent the Saints from keying in on the sophomore lineman. New Orleans ranks 11th in the league in 2020, surrendering 16 sacks thus far this season.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Records sack against Atlanta

    Jones posted two solo tackles, a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Falcons.

    Since returning from a knee injury in Week 7, Jones has posted two sacks in three games. His fantasy floor is negligible with just seven tackles in that stretch, but the 2019 third-round pick is handling reps as the starting defensive end and is developing as a pass rusher.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Lifted from IR

    The Broncos activated Jones (knee) from injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Jones was handed a 4-to-6 week timeline after suffering a PCL strain in the Week 2 loss to Pittsburgh, and he'll make his return to the lineup Sunday against the Chiefs. During his stint on IR, Jurrell Casey (biceps) was ruled out for the season, so Jones could return to an expanded role at defensive end. The 2019 third-rounder posted four tackles and played 58 defensive snaps through the first two games of the year.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Slated to return from IR

    Jones (knee) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

    Jones has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in Week 2 against the Steelers. He was handed a 4-to-6 week timeline, so his return to the lineup this Sunday against the Chiefs would line up. Jurrell Casey (biceps) was ruled out for the season a few weeks ago, so Jones is slated to secure a starting defensive end job upon return to the lineup.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Will miss 4-to-6 weeks

    Jones (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Jones has a PCL strain that will keep him out 4-to-6 weeks, so he'll target a return in late October. The 2019 third-round pick carved out a decent workload to begin the season and recorded four total tackles through two games. With DeMarcus Walker also leaving this past Sunday's game with a calf injury, the Broncos may need reinforcements at defensive end before Week 3's matchup versus the Buccaneers.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Hurts knee in loss

    Jones suffered a knee injury in the second half of Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Steelers and didn't return to the game, Jeff Legwold and Adam Schefter of report.

    The severity of Jones' knee injury is not yet known, but the Broncos should have an update on the initial injury report as they start preparing for a Week 3 clash with the Buccaneers.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Likely to remain a backup

    The Broncos' resigning of veteran Shelby Harris places Jones' presumed starting role in doubt for 2020, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Jones was a favorite of head coach Vic Fangio's heading into the 2019 draft and all signs pointed to him entering the starting lineup in 2020 opposite Jurrell Casey with the presumed departures of Harris and Derek Wolfe. Harris' return throws a wrench into the works. Klis floats the potential of Jones starting alongside Harris and Casey while nose tackle Mike Purcell rotates in, but that leaves the team very undersized upfront -- something that led to a poor performance against the run early in 2019. The most likely scenario, pending further additions to the line, is Purcell starting in the middle bracketed by Casey and Harris. Jones should get more action in 2020 than he did in 2019 as he's groomed for a starting role, and he may even supplant Harris at some point, but Harris' return should definitely eat into Jones' snaps.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Breaks out with 2.5 sacks

    Jones recorded five tackles and 2.5 sacks during Sunday's victory over the Broncos.

    This was a breakout performance of sorts for Jones, who had just nine tackles and one sack to his name over the previous 12 games. The third-round rookie out of Ohio State will look to have another solid outing in the season finale Sunday against a Raiders team that will be without stud left tackle Trent Brown (pectoral).

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Gearing up Sunday

    Jones (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Jones missed Week 15's loss to the Chiefs, but the rookie third-round pick is back in the fold. He has nine tackles and a sack through 12 games this year, and Jones is in line for a starting role since DeMarcus Walker (ankle) is inactive.
