  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Back at practice

    Jones (knee) was able to participate at the Broncos' practice Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Jones has been dealing with a knee injury as the Broncos have been ramping up their offseason program in recent weeks, but it appears the nose tackle is good to go moving forward. Jones is expected to be a staple on Denver's interior defensive line in his second year with the franchise. He recorded 34 tackles, including two sacks, while deflecting a career-high six passes over 15 games last season.

  • Broncos' D.J. Jones: Questionable to play versus KC

    Jones (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Jones was sidelined for first the two practices of Week 17 with a knee injury, though it's unclear when or how this issue first arose. The 27-year-old nose tackle was able to increase his participation with a limited session Friday, so he'll still have a chance to suit up for Sunday's divisional matchup. Jones has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks and a career-high six passes defended over 15 games this season, and his potential absence would leave Eyioma Uwazurike to assume a bigger role behind presumptive starting nose tackle Mike Purcell.
