Yiadom will start at cornerback Sunday against the Chargers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Yiadom saw significant snaps during the first two weeks of the season with Devontae Harris out, and now the 23-year-old has bumped Harris from the starting role. The Boston College product has 20 tackles (17 solo) on the season but has yet to register a sack or interception while primarily playing special teams.
Yiadom made eight solo tackles in Monday's 24-16 loss to the Raiders.
Yiadom's impressive tackle count is partly attributed to his struggles in coverage, as he struggled to lock down Raiders TE Darren Waller. He'll likely continue to be counted on in coverage until Bryce Callahan (foot) returns, which will likely lead to a battle for snaps between Yiadom, De'Vante Bausby and Davontae Harris.
Yiadom came up with an interception and passed defensed during Monday's 24-15 preseason loss to the 49ers.
Things fell apart in the second half with the backups on the field, but the Broncos' first-team defense more than held its own against the 49ers' starters, and Yiadom was a big reason why. On the game's opening drive, Jimmy Garoppolo was forced to throw early with Bradley Chubb breathing down his neck, and Yiadom was able to out-wrestle Marquise Goodwin for the ball, setting up a Denver field-goal drive. Veteran teammate Chris Harris Jr. has remarked that Yiadom is more confident now than he was as a rookie. Yiadom figures to play the vast majority of the Broncos' defensive snaps opposite Harris and free-agent pickup Bryce Callahan. Given the recent success of the two veterans, Yiadom should be tested early this season.
Yiadom (shoulder) participated in Denver's June minicamp, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.
Yiadom was limited for the first week of OTAs in mid-May, but he seems to have made a full recovery from the separated shoulder he sustained late last season. The 2018 third-round pick recorded 20 tackles (17 solo), three pass breakups and an interception over 13 games in a rotational role for Denver in 2018.
Yiadom (shoulder) is expected to be limited for the first week of OTAs, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Yiadom played through a separated right shoulder over the final few weeks of the season and underwent surgery in the offseason, then participated in individual drills during voluntary workouts in April. The 2018 third-round pick played well as a rookie despite the injury, with 20 tackles (17 solo), three passes defensed and one interception in 13 games.
Yiadom (shoulder) participated in individual drills during this week's minicamp, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.
Yiadom underwent offseason surgery to correct a shoulder injury he sustained sometime during the 2018 season. He's yet to receive clearance to participate in team drills, but the Broncos don't have any reason to rush him back into full-speed drills this early in the offseason anyway. When fully healthy, the 2018 third-rounder will compete for a depth role behind Kareem Jackson, Chris Harris and Bryce Callahan ahead of the 2019 campaign.
Yiadom has undergone surgery to repair a separated shoulder he suffered in the regular season, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Yiadom injured his shoulder late last season, but the issue wasn't thought to be serious after he played the final two games of the campaign. The surgery could jeopardize his ability to participate in OTAs, but is not expected to sideline him once training camp rolls around.
Yiadom (shoulder) practiced fully Saturday and doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's contest against the Raiders, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Yiadom missed last Saturday's game against the Browns due to the shoulder issue, but he should slot back into the lineup Monday. He's moved into a starting role with Chris Harris (lower leg) on injured reserve.
Yiadom (shoulder) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Yiadom suffered a separated shoulder during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and will sit out Week 15 as he manages his recovery. Tramaine Brock (ribs) is in line to start at right cornerback against the Browns if he's able to suit up.
Yiadom is listed as day-to-day after separating his shoulder during Sunday's game, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
The specifics of Yiadom's shoulder issue help clear up some previous uncertainty. Luckily for the rookie, the injury doesn't appear to be serious, and he'll likely be return to action before the season ends. The question now shifts to his availability for next week's tilt with the Browns.
Yiadom (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers, Patrick Smyth of the Denver Broncos reports.
Yiadom seemed to suffer the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's contest, and had to be helped off the field by the medical staff. Newly signed Jamar Taylor could be pressed into action with Yiadom sidelined.
Yiadom is listed as a second-team corner on Denver's initial depth chart, the Broncos' official site reports.
Yiadom is listed ahead of 2017 third-round pick Brendan Langley and veteran C.J. Smith. Yiadom, a third-rounder out of Boston College, has reportedly impressed coaches with his length and smarts during his first training camp. Veteran Tramaine Brock, who has battled recent hamstring issues, should still be favored for the No. 3 job, but Yiadom is looking like a good pick early on.
