Roby is set to sign a one-year, $10 million contract with Houston, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
The Texans and Broncos are swapping cornerbacks, with Kareem Jackson reportedly headed to Denver on a three-year deal. It's a clear upgrade for the Broncos based on 2018 performance, but Roby still has room for growth as a first-round pick (2014) entering his age-27 season. Meanwhile, Jackson will turn 31 this spring, though it's only fair to note that he had one of his best seasons in 2018.
Roby (facial laceration) has returned to Saturday's game against the Browns, Kyle Fredrickson of the Denver Post reports.
Roby's return will help a depleted Denver secondary, which lost Branden Langley to a concussion and Jamar Taylor to ejection earlier.
Roby left Saturday night's game against the Browns with a facial laceration, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.
Roby is one of three Denver cornerbacks no longer in the game. Earlier, Jamar Taylor (ejected) and Brendan Langley (concussion) were forced to leave the game.
Roby (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Roby resumed practicing fully Friday and was removed from the concussion protocol at some point prior to kickoff after receiving clearance from an independent neurologist. He'll reprise his usual starting role in the secondary for the Broncos and could spend most of the day trailing Antonio Brown, while Chris Harris likely matches up more frequently with JuJu Smith-Schuster inside.
Coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Roby (concussion) "should be fine to go on Sunday" versus the Steelers, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Roby has been officially tagged with a questionable designation for Week 12, but he appears to be on track to suit up. The 2014 first-round pick has cleared the concussion protocol and would retake his role as Denver's starting left cornerback if he's able to play. Roby's presence would be a notable boon for the Broncos' secondary, which will attempt to contain Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday.
