    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Has Flacco's eye

    New quarterback Joe Flacco is excited about the prospect of working with Courtland Sutton, Michael Spencer of CBS Denver.com reports.There's still a lot to shake out between now and the beginning of the season, including whether Denver takes a quarterback early in the draft. As it stands, there is a solid chance that Flacco takes all the snaps in Mile High and Sutton emerges as his favorite target. Despite his big size and arm, Flacco is more a play-it-safe quarterback, ranking sixth in the league last season in interception percentage. However, had he played the entire season, he would have still been on track to tie the departed Case Keenum for 11th in the league with 52 passes of 20 or more yards. Sutton specialized in the deep ball as a rookie, and, whether or not Flacco chucks it, his arm should put enough fear in secondaries to buy Sutton a little bit more room underneath.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Shows signs of bright future

    Courtland Sutton ended 2018 with 42 catches, 704 yards and four touchdowns off of 84 targets. He lost a yard on his lone carry of the year.Dubbed as Demaryius Thomas' eventual successor after being drafted in the second round, Sutton took on that role earlier than expected following Thomas' mid-season trade to Houston. The results were mixed. Sutton ended up finishing seventh in the league in yards per catch at 16.8, illustrating the big-play ability that led Denver to place a first-round grade on him. He struggled down the stretch, however, following the season-ending Achilles' injury to Emmanuel Sanders. Sutton averaged just 10.4 yards per reception and 14.0 receptions per touchdown in the season's final four games as defenses were able to key on keeping the wideout in front of them. He had averaged 19.9 yards per catch and 9.3 receptions per touchdown prior to Sanders' injury. The next step in Sutton's development will be going from feasting on No. 2 and 3 corners to being able to beat opponents' top covermen. That job will be a lot easier if Sanders is able to return to form or fellow young targets Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton take steps in their development.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Paces team in receiving in loss

    Courtland Sutton caught six of his 10 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 27-14 loss to the Raiders.Sutton caught a 19-yard fourth-quarter touchdown after Case Keenum scrambled for what seemed like an eternity to keep the play, and the Denver Broncos' hopes of winning, alive. Unfortunately, the pair had trouble connecting on anything significant much of the rest of the evening. Still, Sutton saw a season high in both targets and catches while tallying his fourth touchdown of the year. His much-anticipated breakout may yet happen with one game remaining in the regular season at home against the Chargers in Week 17.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Not listed on injury report

    Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) is not listed on the Denver Broncos' injury report heading into Monday's contest.Sutton managed to put together a full practice Saturday, which likely led to the removal of the injury designation. The rookie wideout has seen at least six targets in the last two contests, but he's still been surpassed by the likes of DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick in numerous receiving categories over that stretch. The Broncos' offense as a whole should thrive against a morbid Raiders defense, which would likely lead to a plethora of red-zone opportunities for the 6-foot-3 rookie. However, the emergence of Hamilton and Patrick make using Sutton a risky proposition regardless of the matchup.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Logs another limited session

    Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) remained limited at practice Friday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.After logging back-to-back limited practice sessions, Sutton looks to be trending toward playing Monday against the Raiders. The Denver Broncos will update his status again Saturday, at which point it will be known if he'll be questionable for that contest or removed from the Week 16 injury report altogether. Sutton has logged six targets in each of his last two games, but that resulted in a total of seven catches for 56 yards, numbers that were topped by fellow receivers DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick in that span.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Limited at practice Thursday

    Courtland Sutton (quad) was limited at practice Thursday.Sutton started the Week 15 practice cycle with a missed session Tuesday, followed by a return to limited work Wednesday and a full practice Thursday. After not carrying an injury designation into this past Saturday's loss to the Browns, Sutton caught five of six targets for 42 yards, while seeing action on 86 percent of Denver's snaps on offense. With no setbacks reported afterward, we'll assume for now that Sutton's limitations Thursday were maintenance-related and that he's in line to play Monday night against the Raiders.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Outshined by fellow rookie wideout

    Courtland Sutton caught all five of his targets, logging 42 receiving yards during Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland.The rookie second-round draft choice continues to garner deep-league flex consideration with a healthy workload in Denver's passing attack, collecting five or more targets in five of his past six games. It's encouraging to see Sutton have such an efficient outing against Cleveland, hauling in all five of his targets after posting a putrid catch rate of 46.4 percent over his five most recent performances preceding Saturday. It's been a solid debut campaign overall for the SMU standout, but he hasn't emerged as the clear No. 1 guy in the Denver Broncos receiving corps despite the midseason trade of Demaryius Thomas and recent season-ending injury to Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles). In fact, Sutton has only seen the slightest bump in production since Denver traded Thomas on Oct. 30 (40.5 receiving YPG with two total touchdowns prior to trade, 48.3 YPG and one touchdown since). Week 16's matchup provides potential for a breakout performance, as he'll take on an Oakland defense that's allowed 19 touchdowns to wideouts in 2018, most behind only the 49ers and Packers.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Cleared to play Saturday

    Courtland Sutton (quad) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday night's game against the Browns after practicing fully Thursday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.After being listed as a non-participant Tuesday and limited Wednesday, Sutton graduated to a full session Thursday, which sets the stage for him to remain in the starting lineup in Week 15. In his first game after the Denver Broncos lost Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) for the season, Sutton was on the field for 69 percent of the team's snaps on offense, en route to catching two of his six targets for 14 yards this past Sunday against the 49ers. Assuming no issues with his quad this weekend, Sutton has a chance to bounce back against a Cleveland defense (minus starting cornerback Denzel Ward) that has allowed an average of 277.9 yards in the air to date. Only Kansas City has allowed more.

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Good to go for Week 15

    Courtland Sutton (quadriceps) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.Sutton was a spectator for the Denver Broncos' first practice of the week Tuesday before returning to work Wednesday in limited fashion, with coach Vance Joseph telling Aric DiLalla of the team's official site after the session that the wideout "looked pretty good." The rookie backed up Joseph's optimism by logging every rep at Thursday's practice and should face no restrictions with his snaps in Week 15. In his first game heading an inexperienced Broncos receiving corps minus Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) last weekend against the 49ers, Sutton struggled to make an impact with only two receptions for 14 yards. He should be able to bounce back to some extent versus a Browns secondary that will be missing its top corner in Denzel Ward (concussion).

    Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Limited Wednesday

    Courtland Sutton (quad) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.The injury cost Sutton a few snaps during the Week 14 loss in San Francisco, but he rejoined the contest and finished with two catches for 14 yards on six targets in the Denver Broncos' first game after top wideout Emmanuel Sanders suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. While a short week won't help him, Sutton should be able to give it a go Saturday against the Browns. The Broncos will release their final injury report Thursday, at which point it will be known whether or not Sutton avoids a designation heading into the weekend.
