  • Malik Reed: Brought in by Miami

    The Dolphins signed Reed to their practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Prior to being picked up by the Dolphins, Reed appeared in four games for the Raiders this season, recording three total tackles on 63 defensive snaps. The 27-year-old tallied 8.0 sacks for the Broncos in 2020 and he could very well be elevated to Miami's active roster, seeing work as a rotational edge rusher with the team without Bradley Chubb (knee) and Jaelan Phillips (Achilles) for the remainder of the year.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Availability uncertain

    Reed is questionable to play Sunday against the Saints due to personal reasons, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports. Reed was excused for personal reasons during practice Thursday and was listed as a limited participant Friday, though the nature of this issue is still unclear. The 26-year-old has played a prominent role over eight games for Pittsburgh this season, recording 18 tackles, one sack and two passes defended while playing 300 defensive snaps. However, with star outside linebacker T.J. Watt (knee) expected to play for the first time since Week 1, Reed's usage could take a dip even if he is ultimately available to play against New Orleans.

  • Steelers' Malik Reed: Traded to Pittsburgh

    The Broncos traded Reed to the Steelers on Tuesday in exchange for late draft-pick compensation, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Reed suffered an eye injury during the Broncos' second exhibition game but returned to action during the preseason finale. The 26-year-old started 26 games for Denver since the start of 2020 and posted a team-high 13 sacks and three forced fumbles during that stretch. However, Reed was looking at a reduced role this year with Josey Jewell and Bradley Chubb both healthy to start 2022, plus the addition of Randy Gregory (shoulder). In Pittsburgh, Reed figures to operate as a depth pass rusher behind Alex Highsmith and T.J. Watt.

The 25-year-old has started 26 games since the start of 2020 and posted a team-high 13 sacks and three forced fumbles during that stretch. Reed figures to garner a similar role during the upcoming season.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Notches two sacks

    Reed recorded three tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed in a 17-10 win over Washington on Sunday.

The two sacks ties a single game career high while also doubling his season total. Reed will try to keep rolling Sunday against the Cowboys.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Misses practice

    Reed (groin) missed practice Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Reed played a season-high 96 percent of the defensive snaps in Thursday's loss to the Browns, and it's unknown exactly when he picked up the injury. The Broncos linebacker group is currently riddled with injuries, so having him miss Sunday against Washington would be a big blow to the defense. However, he is expected to be ready for Sunday.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Gets to Wilson

    Reed recorded four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 26-0 win over the Jets. Reed is handling extra playing time now that Bradley Chubb (ankle) is out long term, and he has finally converted his first sack of the 2021 campaign. With Chubb out last year, Reed produced 53 tackles (33 solo) and eight sacks. Those numbers could be within reach again, though Chubb will likely return at some point.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Misses practice

    Reed missed practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports. Coach Vic Fangio did not disclose the severity of Reed's ankle injury or how much time the linebacker could miss. The linebacker recorded a team-high eight sacks last season after Von Miller missed the 2020 campaign due to injury. With Miller returning and Bradley Chubb healthy, Reed will likely be No. 3 in the linebacker rotation. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder will look to improve upon his performance last year and be a key contributor for the Broncos in 2021.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Set for larger role

Reed recorded two sacks and 27 tackles as a rookie in 2019 after signing with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Upgrades to full practice

    Reed (ankle/shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Reed sat out Week 14's win over the Texans due to ankle and shoulder injuries, and he now looks back to full health.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Draws questionable tag

    Reed (ankle/shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Reed kicked off the week as a non-participant in practice, but he's now managed two straight limited sessions. The 23-year-old will work to play through his injuries during Sunday's tilt against the Texans, but a final decision on his availability could come down to a game-time decision. With Von Miller (knee) also listed as questionable, Jeremiah Attaochu and Justin Hollins could be in line for expanded roles on defense Week 14.

Without the two, the Broncos only had two healthy outside linebackers. Reed is expected to continue logging a starter's snap count.

  • Broncos' Malik Reed: Competing for backup job

    Reed looks to be the third outside linebacker at this point in the preseason, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports. Backup edge rushers Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett both departed this offseason, leaving a void behind Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Though unheralded and undrafted out of Nevada, Reed has been one of the most pleasant surprises of Denver's first two preseason games. Reed has recorded a sack in each contest and eight tackles overall. Reed's a bit of a tweener, but he managed to rack up 126 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss and 16 sacks in his final two seasons in Nevada's 3-3-5 scheme. That production seems to be carrying over to the pros.
