Broncos' Josey Jewell: Stacks up 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell made 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Falcons.

Jewell enjoyed his third double-digit tackling performance of the year, and now he's second on the team with 58 tackles (40 solo) through eight games. That ties the career high he set back in 2018. Jewell's a solid IDP asset based on those numbers, although he offers little in terms of pass rush or coverage.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Turns heads against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell picked up 10 tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed during Thursday's 37-28 win over the Jets.

Facing a third-and-six at midfield while down by eight late in the third quarter, Sam Darnold dropped back to try to spark the comeback, but he was swallowed up by Jewell for a nine-yard loss. Jewell's 10 tackles were his most since Week 1 of last season, and his two sacks represented a career high. Perhaps most impressive has been Jewell's play in coverage. Known mostly as an athletically-limited run-stuffer, Jewell had a pass defensed and made some solid plays in coverage. Jewell is playing more than most anticipated he would just a few weeks ago with the loss of coverage backer Mark Barron (hamstring), and he's making the most of his opportunities -- his 30 tackles through four games leads the team.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Has chance to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Following the release of starting inside linebacker Todd Davis, Jewell will have an opportunity to be the next man up, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Jewell got the start in three games in 2019 after logging nine as a rookie in 2018 and totaling 96 tackles, two fumble recoveries and 1.5 sacks. He figures to be the Broncos' best option opposite Alexander Johnson to start the season, but the inside backer position is fluid in Denver. The team recently signed Mark Barron and traded for Austin Calitro. Neither has the familiarity with Vic Fangio's defense that Jewell has, but both are superior athletes, which is notable given the struggles Jewell has had in coverage. If Jewell does hold onto the starting job for the bulk of the season, he is still likely to be spelled on passing downs.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Ready to rock Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Jewell was spotted in a walking boot following Week 12's loss to the Bills, but he'll be able to resume his reserve role on the Broncos' defense in this divisional tilt.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Jewell sustained the injury during last Sunday's loss to the Bills and was wearing a walking boot after the game, but he was able to practice as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday. Alexander Johnson (knee) is also questionable, which could leave the Broncos short on depth at inside linebacker this week.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Jewell was present at practice Wednesday, but the linebacker did not take part in any team drills. As of now, Jewell is questionable for Sunday's home game versus the Chargers.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Sporting leg accessory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot following Sunday's loss to the Bills, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Per Klis, Jewell's X-rays came back negative, and he's now scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday. Jewell got his ankle rolled up on during a kick return in the first half and didn't return. Expect a report from the team following Jewell's MRI. If he can't suit up in Week 13, his absence will likely only affect the depth on special teams and defense.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Officially done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) is ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Bills, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Jewell left the contest in the first half and was ruled questionable, but further evaluation deemed the second-year linebacker done for the day. With 31 tackles in tow this season, Jewell's absence will affect both the depth of the Broncos' defense and their special teams.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills.

It's unclear how Jewell suffered the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the second quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for Joseph Jones to see an increase in reps as a depth inside linebacker.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Jewell wasn't able to suit up Week 5 against the Chargers, but he now appears recovered from his hamstring issue. Barring any setbacks, expect Jewell to receive his usual starting workload against the Titans on Sunday.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Starting off as a limited participant is a positive sign, as Jewell didn't practice at all last Wednesday ahead of Week 5's game versus the Chargers, and he was ultimately inactive. However, getting back onto the field at full speed would clear up any remaining concerns. Despite missing the last game, Jewell still leads the team with 27 total tackles.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Unable to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Jewell will miss the first game of his career. He recorded 27 tackles through the first four games, and a rotation of Joseph Jones and Alexander Johnson will be summoned to fill that void.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Jewell started the week not practicing but was able to show enough progress in the last couple days to earn the questionable tag. The 24-year-old had 27 tackles (15 solo) through the first three games before suffering the hamstring injury last week against the Jaguars.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Not participating in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Jewell exited Week 4's game versus the Jaguars with a hamstring injury, and this issue is putting his status for Sunday's game versus the Chargers in jeopardy. The second-year pro still has two practices to get back onto the field, but for now, the Broncos will be preparing for a tough test against Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler without him.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Jaguars with a hamstring injury, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.

Jewell was a game-time decision this week with a leg injury, so this may be related. In his stead, expect Alexander Johnson and Corey Nelson to fill in at inside linebacker.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (leg) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

Jewell avoids missing the first game of his career, as he'll start at inside linebacker. The 24-year-old has been impressive through the first three games with 27 tackles (15 solo), and he'll be tasked with slowing down Leonard Fournette in this matchup.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Not on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (leg) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Jewell had an MRI on Monday and the results were favorable, but he's still in danger of missing Sunday's game versus the Jaguars. His practice status will be monitored throughout the week.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Set to receive MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (leg) is receiving an MRI on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Jewell suffered a leg injury during Sunday's 27-16 loss to the Packers. The results of his MRI should provide a clear timetable for his recovery. Corey Nelson and Keishawn Bierria will see increased snaps if Jewell is forced to miss any time.

September 22, 2019 03:36 PM
Broncos' Josey Jewell: Hurts leg Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell (leg) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Packers, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos' official site reports.

Jewell played every snap over the first two games, and he was leading the team with six tackles when he left the game. This will hurt the Broncos' run-stopping abilities. A rotation of Corey Nelson and Keishawn Bierria will slot in at inside linebacker for the time being.

Broncos' Josey Jewell: Whopping 14 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jewell made 14 tackles (seven solo) in Monday's 24-16 loss to the Raiders.

After playing in a reserve role last season, Jewell made his presence known Monday while playing all 58 defensive snaps and leading the team in tackles. Jewell looks poised to be a top tackler on the Broncos' defense, making him a viable IDP option in deeper leagues.
