  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Hoping to be available by Monday

    Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said that he hopes to have Ojemudia (elbow) on the team's active roster and off injured reserve by Monday night's contest versus the Chargers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Ojemudia was placed on IR after suffering a dislocated elbow in August, and he's since missed the team's first first five games as a result. If the 200-pound cornerback is indeed elevated to Denver's active roster before Monday night's matchup against the Chargers, he'll likely serve as a depth piece in the Broncos' secondary behind Patrick Surtain, K'Waun Williams (wrist) and Damarri Mathis (knee).

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Back at practice

    Ojemudia (elbow) was designated to return from IR on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Ojemudia was able to practice with the team Tuesday as a result, and he could return to play as soon as Monday against the Chargers. However, he will need to be activated to the 53-man roster before then, which the team now has three weeks to do.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Dislocates elbow

    Ojemudia suffered a dislocated elbow Saturday, Andrew Mason of 104.3 The Fan reports. It's a really tough break for Ojemudia, who had been jockeying for depth chart positioning in an uber-competitive Broncos defensive backfield. He should still be in line to see the field in some capacity this season once he has fully recovered from his injury, but in the meantime, K'Waun Williams and Damarri Mathis will likely see most of Denver's reps at corner behind Patrick Surtain and Ronald Darby.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Undergoing concussion evaluation

    Ojemudia (head) left Saturday' preseason game against the Cowboys to be evaluated for a possible concussion. Ojemudia is questionable to return to Saturday' exhibition after suffering a head injury. The 2020 third-round pick recorded 62 tackles and six passes defended over 16 games as a rookie, but he was sidelined for all but two weeks while dealing with a hamstring injury last season. When healthy, Ojemudia figures to compete with Damarri Mathis and Blessuan Austin for a primary depth role in Denver's secondary this preseason.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Activated from IR

    Ojemudia (hamstring) was activated from IR on Saturday. Ojemudia was injured during the preseason and it was expected his hamstring was more of a week-to-week issue, but this Sunday will be his first chance to play in 2021. Assuming the second-year pro is active Sunday against the Lions, he'll likely provide some depth in the secondary and snaps on special teams.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Ojemudia (hamstring) tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Ojemudia is also dealing with a hamstring injury and has yet to play this season. The 2020 third-round selection will try to get healthy so he can take the field in 2021.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Suffers hamstring injury

    Ojemudia (hamstring) is considered week-to-week but should be OK, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver. It was originally feared that Ojemudia suffered a knee injury in Saturday's 30-3 win over the Seahawks, but multiple sources indicate that the injury is related to his hamstring. The 23-year-old cornerback has had a solid training camp and preseason, but his playing time in the Denver defense likely will be limited going forward. The Broncos acquired Kyle Fuller, Ronald Darby and rookie Patrick Surtain this offseason, and this trio should see the majority of snaps in Denver's defensive backfield. Ojemudia's injury only muddies his situation more entering the 2021 season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: All clear at OTAs

    Ojemudia (knee) was a full participant during the Broncos' offseason work. Ojemudia underwent a minor knee surgery this offseason, so it's a good sign to see the Iowa product back on the field so quickly. The 2020 third-round pick recorded 62 tackles (55 solo), six pass breakups and four forced fumbles in his rookie campaign, as he looks to make a jump in his second NFL season. The team signed veterans Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller, and also drafted cornerback Patrick Surtain in the first round, so it's unclear what sort of role Ojemudia will have in the defense heading into 2021.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Set for knee surgery

    Ojemudia will undergo minor knee surgery in the near future, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. The 23-year-old played at least 75 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the final five games of the season, so it's unclear when he sustained the injury. Regardless, the minor surgery shouldn't significantly affect the rookie third-round pick's offseason work. Ojemudia finished the season with 62 tackles (55 solo), six passes defensed and four forced fumbles in 16 games.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Set to miss time

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Ojemudia (quadriceps) will miss at least a week, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. The Broncos have a solid secondary but drafted Ojemudia in the third round of April's draft anyway, but missing more than a week in training camp could deflate his workload through the first couple of games. He wasn't going to be a top-two cornerback anyway with A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan on board.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Third-round selection for Denver

    The Broncos selected Ojemudia in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 77th overall. The Broncos have A.J. Bouye outside and Bryce Callahan in the slot, but Ojemudia should prove helpful on the outside. At 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, the former Iowa standout is a big corner with reach (32 and 1/4-inch arms) and plus athleticism (4.45-second 40-yard dash). The Iowa pass defense was tough throughout Ojemudia's college career, so he definitely checks a few boxes.
