Panthers' A.J. Bouye: Signs with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (suspension) agreed to a contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Bouye is coming off a turbulent season with the Broncos, as he played just seven games due to a dislocated shoulder before being hit with a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. The 29-year-old cornerback will need to serve two more games of that suspension in 2021. Once activated, Bouye will likely challenge Rashaan Melvin for a starting role opposite No. 1 corner Donte Jackson.

A.J. Bouye: Released by Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos will release Bouye (suspension) on Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Traded from Jacksonville to Denver last offseason, Bouye made only seven appearances for the Broncos in 2020, first dealing with a dislocated shoulder before he was handed a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy. He'll still need to serve two games of the suspension at the beginning of the 2021 season, but he could still draw some interest as a potential starter. Bouye has made 51 starts for three different teams over the past five years, recording 56 pass breakups and nine interceptions during that span.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Suspended six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL has officially suspended Bouye six games for violating the performance-enhancing drugs policy, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bouye's suspension rules him out for the remainder of the 2020 campaign and will additionally carry over to the first two games of 2021. In the meantime, rookie third-round pick Michael Ojemudia could be asked to handle an expanded role.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Handed PED suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye is facing a suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

While the length of Bouye's ban isn't yet known, Klis notes that the cornerback's suspension is related to the ones currently being served by the Texans' Will Fuller and Bradley Roby. Both of those players were handed six-game suspensions last week, so Bouye will most likely be in line for a ban of similar length. If Bouye's suspension is confirmed, it would be yet another major blow to a Denver secondary that within the last week moved Bryce Callahan (foot) to injured reserve and lost Essang Bassey to a season-ending ACL tear.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Back to full-go in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (concussion) was on the field as a full participant during the Broncos' practice session Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Coach Vic Fangio announced Bouye as having cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday, and a return to a full practice workload bodes well for his Week 10 status heading into a road test against the Raiders. Bouye suffered the concussion Week 8 against the Chargers, and so far it appears he is on track to miss just one contest. The former Jaguar has allowed one passing touchdown against him in three appearances thus far this season, surrendering a 68.8 percent completion rate when targeted in coverage.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Bouye has cleared the concussion protocol, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bouye was limited in Wednesday's practice, as Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. He'll have two more chances to upgrade to full participation ahead of Sunday's game in Las Vegas, though, so it's safe to say that Bouye is at least trending in the right direction for Week 10.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: May return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio hopes Bouye (concussion) will be able to practice this week and play Sunday at Las Vegas, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The 29-year-old suffered the concussion Week 8 against the Chargers and was unable to play during Sunday's loss to the Falcons, but his absence could be limited to one game. Bouye still needs to clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of playing versus the Raiders.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Won't dress Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (concussion) won't suit up Sunday against Atlanta, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.

Bouye still hasn't cleared concussion protocol since getting concussed in last week's win over the Chargers. He'll need to do so before his team's Week 10 road tilt in Las Vegas in order to be eligible to play in that one.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Remains absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Bouye will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before being cleared to retake the field, so he's running out of time to return in time for Sunday's game in Atlanta. Duke Dawson and Essang Bassey will stand to handle increased snaps if Bouye misses more time.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Concussion confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said following Sunday's 31-30 win over the Chargers that Bouye did suffer a concussion, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Bouye will now need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before retaking the field, meaning he can't be considered a lock to suit up at Atlanta in Week 9. If the veteran cornerback is forced to miss time, Duke Dawson and Essang Bassey could be candidates to see an uptick in defensive snaps.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Checked for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye has exited Sunday's game against the Chargers and is being evaluated for a concussion, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Bouye was forced out in the fourth quarter, so a failure to re-enter Sunday's contest wouldn't necessarily confirm that he's sustained a concussion. If the veteran cornerback is placed in the league's five-step concussion protocol, he'll need to gain full medical clearance before being eligible to retake the field.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Ready for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos activated Bouye (shoulder) from injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The Broncos' pass defense has been strong this season, allowing 204.2 yards per game (sixth in the league), but it'll face its toughest test of the season Sunday with the Chiefs coming to town. Bouye getting healthy will be a major boost for the secondary. The 29-year-old corner hasn't played since the season opener, but he's expected to immediately slot into a starting role for Denver.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: May return in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Bouye (shoulder) could return to the lineup Sunday versus the Chiefs, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Bouye returned to practice last Wednesday, so he has 16 days left to be activated from IR. We'll see if he can ramp up to a full-speed practice by Friday, which would essentially guarantee he'll play Sunday. Bouye will immediately handle an every-snap workload once he's back in the lineup, and either Essang Bassey or De'Vante Bausby would revert to a reserve role.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that it's "doubtful" that Bouye (shoulder) suits up in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Bouye returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since being placed on IR on Sept. 14. The team has 20 days to activate him, but it doesn't appear that will occur in time for the Week 6 contest. Expect Bouye to continue healing up while practicing, and for Michael Ojemudia to handle starting duties opposite Bryce Callahan in Week 6.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday, opening his 21-day window to return from IR, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The Broncos will have three weeks to take the veteran cornerback off IR, and such a move could happen as soon as before Sunday's game against the Patriots if Bouye impresses in practice. Bouye hasn't seen the field since dislocating his shoulder in the first half of Denver's season opener.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Week 5 return unlikely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Bouye (shoulder) is a long shot to suit up Sunday against the Patriots, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.

Bouye is eligible to come off IR, but it looks like he won't be doing so until Week 6 against Miami at the earliest. Denver's expected to trot out Michael Ojemudia as the starter opposite Bryce Callahan at cornerback in New England.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Officially on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos placed Bouye (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

Bouye suffered the injury in Monday night's game against the Steelers, an injury the team indicated was a dislocated shoulder. The recovery timeline is set between two and three weeks, but the cornerback won't be eligible to return until at least Week 5. With Bouye sidelined, Bryce Callahan bumped to the outside and Essang Bassey covered the slot in Monday's game, and they are expected to keep doing so this week against Tampa Bay.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Won't face Steelers, could hit IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (shoulder) is considered week-to-week and won't suit up in Pittsburgh on Sunday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bouye will be forced to miss time due to the dislocated shoulder he suffered during Monday's loss to the Titans. If the initial recovery timetable of two to three weeks is accurate, it wouldn't be surprising for Denver to place Bouye on injured reserve to free up a roster spot. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Bouye won't require any surgical procedures to address the injury.

Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Sustains dislocated shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye dislocated his shoulder in Monday's win over the Titans, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The team will run additional tests to see the extent of the damage, but at this time, Bouye's trending in the wrong direction ahead of Week 2's matchup versus the Steelers. When Bouye exited the game Monday, Bryce Callahan bumped to the outside and Essang Bassey covered the slot, and the Broncos could roll with a similar formation if Bouye is forced to miss time.

September 15, 2020 03:12 PM
Broncos' A.J. Bouye: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye will undergo an MRI after suffering a shoulder injury in Monday's loss to the Titans, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bouye sustained this injury in the first half and didn't return to the prime-time matchup. Head coach Vic Fangio didn't provide much of an update besides that it was a shoulder injury, but the MRI results and Wednesday's practice report should reveal more.
