  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Gearing up for offseason program

    Strnad (wrist) will be ready to participate when Broncos team workouts open up this spring, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

    The Broncos acquired Strnad in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, intrigued by the pass-defending skill set he showcased during his career at Wake Forest. After dislocating the lunate bone and suffering multiple torn ligaments in his wrist during an August practice, Strnad did not ultimately field a single snap during his rookie campaign. Strnad's rehabilitation process incorporated upper body exercises several weeks ago, according to Troy Renck of Denver7 News. Now, it's confirmed the linebacker will be ready to roll when offseason workouts begin in late April.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Placed on IR

    The Broncos placed Strnad (wrist) on injured reserve Monday, per the NFL's transaction list.

    Strnad is expected to undergo wrist surgery that will force him to miss the entire 2020 season, so this news isn't quite surprising. Strnad will likely spend the season on the team's IR barring an injury settlement.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Season-ending wrist injury

    Strnad will undergo wrist surgery and miss the 2020 season, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Although he's only a late fifth-round pick out of Wake Forest, Strnad was a candidate to provide upgraded coverage snaps over starting inside linebacker Todd Davis, who's currently sitting out with a calf injury. Strnad's absence might leave more snaps on Davis' plate when he gets over the calf issue, while the other inside linebacker spot will go to Alexander Johnson.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Dealing with injury

    Strnad suffered a wrist injury during Sunday's practice, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    The specifics of the injury remain unclear, and it's possible the injury could jeopardize the 2020 fifth-round pick's availability for the regular season. The Wake Forest product has impressed his head coach Vic Fangio during training camp, pushing for a depth role in the defense.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Impressing his head coach

    Broncos head coach Vic Fangio has liked what he's seen from Strnad to start camp, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Strnad finished second in the ACC with 105 total tackles in 2018 and was exceeding that pace in 2019 before tearing his bicep seven games into the season. Alexander Johnson and Todd Davis are solidified as the starters, but Strnad's coverage ability could earn him a reserve role in 2020 and a chance to fill Davis's shoes if he is not resigned for 2021.

  • Broncos' Justin Strnad: Heading to Denver

    The Broncos selected Strnad in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 178th overall.

    The Wake Forest product started 20 games from 2018-19, across which span he compiled 174 total tackles and four sacks. Strnad (6-foot-3, 238 pounds) is known for an aggressive style of play and above-average ball tracking skills, so he'll likely start out as a special-teams asset with the Broncos, with upside to eventually push for reps at inside linebacker.
