Graham (shoulder) was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports. Graham was placed on IR at the end of the preseason due to a shoulder injury, leading to the Broncos ultimately decided to cut ties with the tight end. He'll look to return to full strength in the hopes that he can return to an NFL roster next season.
Graham (shoulder) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports. A shoulder injury has kept Graham on the sideline for each outing of his first exhibition season as a Bronco. With Jeff Heuerman (hamstring) also on the pine, Virgil Green has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Denver.
Graham (shoulder) worked with the team's strength and conditioning coach Thursday, Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com reports. Graham has been nursing a shoulder injury for roughly two weeks now, but the 30-year-old appears to be closing in a return to the gridiron. For the most part, Denver has remained mum regarding the details of his ailment, but the notion that Graham was spotted rehabbing is encouraging no matter how you slice it. The seven-year vet is hoping to rekindle some of his production from 2013, but in order to do so he must first get back to 100 percent.
Graham (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's preseason game versus the 49ers, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports. Graham has yet to receive his first target in a Broncos uniform, but an unknown issue continues to ail the veteran tight end. Fellow tight ends Virgil Green and Jeff Heuerman (hamstring) will continue to hold down the top 2 spots on the depth chart.
Graham missed Saturday's practice with an undisclosed injury, the Denver Post reports. In the offseason, Graham joined forces with head coach Gary Kubiak for the second time in his career. Embedded in a TE corps without a clear-cut No. 1, Graham has an opportunity to secure a consistent role in the Broncos' offense. However, he went without a target in Thursday's preseason game at Chicago, while Virgil Green (three catches for 26 yards) and Jeff Heuerman (one reception for six yards) were both on the receiving end of passes.
