Broncos' Jake Butt: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Since joining the league last season, Butt has already suffered two torn ACLs -- last season in his right knee and now in his left. In a corresponding move, the Broncos added tight end Brian Parker to their active roster from the practice squad. Look for Jeff Heuerman to see increased snaps with Butt now out.

Broncos' Jake Butt: May have torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos fear that Butt (knee) suffered a torn ACL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's reportedly a non-contact injury he suffered during a walk-through. If this brutal news is confirmed, Butt will be done for the season and fellow tight end Jeff Heuerman's profile in the Denver offense would figure to expand.

Broncos' Jake Butt: Snags four passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt reeled in four of six targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 20-19 win over the Raiders.

Facing second and 10 with just over a minute remaining, Case Keenum dropped back and found Butt for a 14-yard gain, pushing the Broncos offense to midfield on their way to a comeback win. For the second consecutive week, Butt delivered a key reception during a game-winning scoring drive. He might be the team's No. 2 tight end, but he has over twice as many targets as starter Jeff Heuerman through two games.

Broncos' Jake Butt: Ties for second in targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt hauled in four of six targets for 48 yards Sunday in the Broncos' 20-19 win over the Raiders.

Though he only played 26 of a possible 66 offensive snaps, Butt was a go-to option for quarterback Case Keenum whenever he was on the field, finishing tied for second on the team in targets. Jeff Heuerman started and out-snapped Butt for the second straight week, but he's filled mostly a blocking role for the Broncos thus far. Butt will need to eat further into Heuerman's snap count to improve his season-long outlook, but it's clear the 2017 fifth-round pick is the superior pass-catching threat of the two and thus offers more fantasy appeal.

Broncos' Jake Butt: No targets again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butt appeared in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears but was not targeted in the passing game.

For someone who's known for his receiving prowess, Butt's complete lack of involvement as a receiver through two preseason games is concerning. Then again, it's only the preseason, and no other Broncos tight end has made more of a name for himself through the air in practice this summer. Butt, who sat out the entire 2017 season recovering from a torn ACL, will look to record his first catch as a professional during Denver's third preseason game next Friday against the Redskins.
