    Broncos' Jake Butt: Injury isn't major concern

    Jake Butt's (knee) injury is not a major concern according to head coach Vic Fangio, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. "I don't think it's major concern," Fangio said. "Kind of to be expected. Just didn't feel right for him."The Denver Broncos are off Tuesday so the tight end's next opportunity to take the field will come Wednesday. Butt has had an injury-riddle beginning to his NFL career, suffering two torn ACLs in his first two seasons in the league. For that reason the Broncos are likely to exercise extreme caution with Butt this preseason.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Returns to practice

    Jake Butt (knee) played 5-to-6 snaps of 7-on-7 during Thursday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.Butt was finally able to return to practice and took part in some 7-on-7 work. "I have to shake off some rust," stated Butt. "It's been a while. It feels like I've been fighting an uphill battle overcoming this third ACL. It's going to take some time and that being said, it's still really early." Butt has logged just three NFL games since being selected in the 2017 Draft after tearing his ACL yet again in September of 2018.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Won't land on PUP list

    Jake Butt (knee) won't be placed on the physically unable to perform list this offseason but will be eased into team activities, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.Butt has played in just three games since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, largely due to tearing his ACL for the third time in five years. The team reported earlier that the tight end was likely to be cleared to participate in training camp when it opens Thursday, and this news confirms that notion. A slow transition back into the fold should be expected for the Michigan product, but the 23-year-old could be fighting for a roster spot after the team drafted Noah Fant 20th overall in April's draft.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Will participate in training camp

    Jake Butt (knee) will be cleared to participate in training camp, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.Butt, who tore his ACL for the third time in the last five years, has played in just three games since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. A report surfaced at the end of March that Butt wouldn't be able to practice until sometime in August, so it's encouraging to see the team confident the injury-prone tight end can take part immediately. The Denver Broncos are expected to slowly transition Butt back into the fold, but the 23-year-old could be fighting for a roster spot after the team re-signed Jeff Heuerman to a two-year deal during the offseason and also selected Noah Fant with the 20th pick in draft.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Could be back for camp

    Coach Vic Fangio said he's hopeful Jake Butt (knee) will be available for training camp, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.The beginning of training camp sounds optimistic given Butt's statement in late March that he was still about five months away from being able to practice. His timeline hints at a possible stint on the PUP list to begin the season, which shouldn't come as any surprise for a player recovering from his third ACL tear in a five-year span. The injury in September at least took place in his left knee, while the first two tears impacted his right. The Denver Broncos don't seem to be counting on Butt for a major contribution in 2019, as they re-signed Jeff Heuerman to a two-year contract and drafted Noah Fant at No. 20 overall.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Still far away from practice

    Jake Butt (knee) said he is about five months away from being able to practice, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.Rehabbing from his third ACL tear, Butt apparently isn't on track for the start of training camp but could be ready at some point during the first half of the 2019 season. He's pleased with his progress since suffering the latest injury in late September, and there's no question the Denver Broncos could use some help at tight end after losing Matt LaCosse to the Patriots. The team did re-sign Jeff Heuerman, who served as the starter in 2018 until a bruised lung and broken ribs forced him to injured reserve in late November. It won't come as any surprise if Denver supplements the position with an early draft pick.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Progressing in rehab

    Jake Butt (knee) is aiming to return to the field in time for OTAs this spring, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports. "I'll be here all offseason rehabbing and at the very least I'll be fully healthy for [training] camp," Butt said. "I'm progressing and I have goals. I want to at least be doing something during OTAs. I feel really good."Butt, who tore up his knee twice in college, is on the mend from a torn ACL in his left leg that he suffered in practice last September. The tight end will be roughly seven months removed from surgery by the time the offseason program begins in April, which is likely too early to expect someone to be running at full speed. With that said, we just saw the Chargers' Hunter Henry return from an ACL tear in less than eight months. Regardless of when exactly he returns to the field, Butt seems on track to be ready to play far before the start of the 2019 season. With Jeff Heuerman (ribs) set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, Butt is in the running to earn the starting job in Denver.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Ends second season on IR

    Jake Butt caught eight of 12 targets for 85 yards in 2018.After essentially red-shirting as a rookie -- still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the Orange Bowl -- Butt lasted just three games in his sophomore campaign before suffering another torn ACL in practice. When he was on the field, Butt drew praise from teammates and coaches in practice and looked to be building a solid rapport with Case Keenum in games. Assuming he regains his health, he looks to be the best of a large collection of young, unestablished options at Denver's disposal. One couldn't blame the Denver Broncos' brass, however, for seeking additional options in free agency or the draft given Butt's run of injuries.

    Broncos' Jake Butt: Placed on IR

    Jake Butt (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.Since joining the league last season, Butt has already suffered two torn ACLs -- last season in his right knee and now in his left. In a corresponding move, the Denver Broncos added tight end Brian Parker to their active roster from the practice squad. Look for Jeff Heuerman to see increased snaps with Butt now out.
