  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Finishes season with 31 tackles

    Jones finished the 2021 season with 31 tackles (18 solo), 5.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. Jones had a strong 2021 campaign, as his 5.5 sacks were the second-most of any Broncos defender behind fellow defensive end Shelby Harris. The 25-year-old appeared in 16 games this season and is developing into an impact player in Denver. Jones will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2022, so the 6-foot-3, 281-pounder will look to have another great season before becoming a free agent in 2023.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Picks up sack against Dolphins

    Jones recorded three tackles and a sack during Sunday's 20-13 win over Miami. The sack was Jones' second in his last three games, as the Broncos swarmed Tua Tagovailoa for six total sacks. Jones has made the most of his increased opportunities with both Jurrell Casey (biceps) and Shelby Harris (COVID-19) out of the lineup. Harris may return Sunday against the Saints, which should help prevent the Saints from keying in on the sophomore lineman. New Orleans ranks 11th in the league in 2020, surrendering 16 sacks thus far this season.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Slated to return from IR

    Jones (knee) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Jones has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in Week 2 against the Steelers. He was handed a 4-to-6 week timeline, so his return to the lineup this Sunday against the Chiefs would line up. Jurrell Casey (biceps) was ruled out for the season a few weeks ago, so Jones is slated to secure a starting defensive end job upon return to the lineup.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Likely to remain a backup

    The Broncos' resigning of veteran Shelby Harris places Jones' presumed starting role in doubt for 2020, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Jones was a favorite of head coach Vic Fangio's heading into the 2019 draft and all signs pointed to him entering the starting lineup in 2020 opposite Jurrell Casey with the presumed departures of Harris and Derek Wolfe. Harris' return throws a wrench into the works. Klis floats the potential of Jones starting alongside Harris and Casey while nose tackle Mike Purcell rotates in, but that leaves the team very undersized upfront -- something that led to a poor performance against the run early in 2019. The most likely scenario, pending further additions to the line, is Purcell starting in the middle bracketed by Casey and Harris. Jones should get more action in 2020 than he did in 2019 as he's groomed for a starting role, and he may even supplant Harris at some point, but Harris' return should definitely eat into Jones' snaps.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Nursing high-ankle sprain

    Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's win over the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jones was spotted wearing a walking boot following the Week 14 win. High-ankle sprains generally carry a multi-week recovery timetable, so with only three contests remaining in the regular season, it's possible that the Broncos will opt to place Jones on injured reserve. The rookie third-round pick has notched nine tackles (five solo), one sack, two defended passes and one interception across 12 games this season.

The team should have an official word on Jones' health leading into next week's game against Kansas City.
