It was somewhat of a surprise when the Broncos took Langley at the end of the third round out of Lamar in last year's draft. Head coach Vance Joseph, a defensive backs coach by trade, was drawn to his size and speed and ball skills from his time as a wide receiver at Georgia. He didn't get many looks as a rookie and, even with improvements, is unlikely to see the field much beyond special teams in 2018. Veteran Tramaine Brock figures to be the team's third corner behind Chris Harris and Bradley Roby and the defense has often featured a third safety -- likely Will Parks -- in dime situations. Short of beating out Brock, Langley will probably continue to develop behind the scenes with this year's third-round pick, Isaac Yiadom.
Langley is still looking to make his NFL debut after being picked in the third round of this year's draft. Pending any setbacks, it looks like he'll get his first chance Sunday against the Raiders, but expect him mainly on special teams.
Langley has been sidelined the last two weeks with a sprained knee, but his return to practice Wednesday is encouraging regarding his status for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders. However, the rookie is just expected to provide depth at cornerback, as well as play a role in special teams should he be able to take the field.
Langley (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Langley hadn't practiced all week, so it's no surprise that he isn't playing Sunday. He'll likely need a week of practice at some capacity before he dresses for a game, and Bradley Roby (foot) will likely continue to slot in if he's healthy enough to play. If Roby is out as well, expect to see Lorenzo Doss play a significant amount of snaps.
Langley (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Langley barely got introduced to the league in Week 1 before he had to leave with an injury. He was expected to earn a fair amount of defensive snaps in the nickel scheme, as well as rotating in as a return man. Lorenzo Doss may be given more snaps Sunday, but expect Bradley Roby to pick up most of the slack left by Langley.
