  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Back at practice

    Purcell (undisclosed) participated in team drills during mandatory minicamp, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Purcell was sidelined for OTAs at the end of April due to an undisclosed injury, but as expected, the veteran defensive tackle has moved past the minor issue quickly. Purcell notched 33 tackles across 13 appearances last season and will likely garner a similar role in 2022.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Lands in COVID protocols

    Purcell (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports, and he tested positive for the virus, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

    Purcell's potential absence against the Chargers on Sunday would be a blow to the Broncos' defensive line. If he is unable to clear protocols in time, DeShawn Williams would likely draw the start at nose tackle.
