  • Broncos' Caden Sterns: Won't play Sunday

    Sterns (shoulder) is inactive Sunday against the Bengals, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Sterns absence doesn't hit as hard with Kareem Jackson (back) active, but it still hurts the depth of the Broncos secondary. The rookie's inability to play Sunday will likely lead to extra work for PJ Locke and Jamar Johnson.

  • Broncos' Caden Sterns: Questionable for Week 7

    Sterns (illness) is listed as questionable for the Broncos' Thursday night game against the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Sterns started off the practice week healthy but then missed practice Tuesday and was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. If he's available to play Thursday, the rookie will hope to log defensive snaps against a depleted Cleveland offense. Expect Jamar Johnson or PJ Locke to take over Sterns' depth role Thursday if he can't suit up.

  • Broncos' Caden Sterns: Gets to QB twice in loss

    Sterns recorded two sacks in Sunday's 23-7 loss to the Ravens.

    Sterns' two sacks were his first of his young career. The rookie safety has now made impact plays in two straight games after recording his first interception in Week 3. Sterns has a chance to keep things going in Week 5 when the Broncos visit the Steelers. Through four games, Ben Roethlisberger has been sacked 10 times and thrown four interceptions.

  • Broncos' Caden Sterns: Misses practice

    Sterns (hip) was held out of practice Monday, Jeff Legwold of reports.

    Sterns sat out due to hip soreness after playing 54 snaps in Saturday's win over the Vikings, the second most of any Broncos defender. The rookie safety has had a strong training camp thus far, and his performance Saturday continued to impress, as he registered a team-high six tackles and had a touchdown-saving pass breakup in the end zone. Sterns is currently battling to take hold of the No. 3 safety spot behind veterans Kareem Jackson and Justin Simmons, and he is certainly making a convincing case with his play on the field. If the 21-year-old can bounce back quickly from his hip issue, he will have another opportunity to build upon his recent success when the Broncos visit the Seahawks in Week 2 of the preseason.
