Broncos' Malik Reed: Tacks on two sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed made five tackles (three solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 18-12 win over the Patriots.

Reed entered Week 6 without a sack through the first four games, but he took down Cam Newton twice to match last year's sack total in just one game. He also finished with an 86 percent snap share -- his highest of the season. Reed could be relegated to a bench role once Jeremiah Attaochu (quadriceps) returns to the lineup, but even before Attaochu's injury, Reed consistently rotated in on defense. Perhaps his two-sack performance will earn him more looks going forward.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Set for larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed and Jeremiah Attaochu are expected to share most of the snaps left behind by Von Miller's ankle injury, per coach Vic Fangio, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.

Miller's injury creates an opportunity for the 24-year-old Reed to make a leap in his second NFL season. Reed recorded two sacks and 27 tackles as a rookie in 2019 after signing with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (ankle/shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Reed sat out Week 14's win over the Texans due to ankle and shoulder injuries, and he now looks back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the 23-year-old can be expected to draw his usual start in Denver's linebacker corps in Kansas City on Sunday.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Inactive Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (ankle/shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans.

The 23-year-old was able to work as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but isn't suiting up Sunday. Reed started the last eight games for Denver, and his absence likely pushes Jeremiah Attaochu and Justin Hollins into expanded roles this week.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (ankle/shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Reed kicked off the week as a non-participant in practice, but he's now managed two straight limited sessions. The 23-year-old will work to play through his injuries during Sunday's tilt against the Texans, but a final decision on his availability could come down to a game-time decision. With Von Miller (knee) also listed as questionable, Jeremiah Attaochu and Justin Hollins could be in line for expanded roles on defense Week 14.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed didn't practice Wednesday due to ankle and shoulder injuries, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Reed exited last Sunday's win over the Chargers with a lower leg injury but was able to return, though he now has the ankle and shoulder issues to contend with. The specifics of the injuries remain unclear, but the 23-year-old's availability will remain up in the air until he returns to practice.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (lower leg) returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The Broncos faithful can breathe a sigh of relief, as Reed and Jeremiah Attaochu (lower leg) both came back into the game in the second quarter. Without the two, the Broncos only had two healthy outside linebackers. Reed is expected to continue logging a starter's snap count.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Leaves with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a lower-leg injury, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos' official site reports.

Reed left the game just a few plays after Jeremiah Attaochu (lower leg) departed, leaving the Broncos' outside linebacker corps extremely thin. Justin Hollins and Ahmad Gooden can both fill in, but interior linebackers Joseph Jones and Josey Jewell may need to bump outside.

Broncos' Malik Reed: May fill in for Chubb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Reed is in the discussion to replace Bradley Chubb (knee), although the Broncos will likely take a committee approach, Zac Stevens of reports.

Reed, an undrafted rookie, played a season-high 24 defensive snaps in Week 4 while Chubb was getting his knee checked out, although Justin Hollins topped him with 34. It's a tall task to play opposite Von Miller and replace Chubb, who racked up 12 sacks in his rookie season, so it seems more likely the Broncos take a committee approach between Reed and Hollins until one sticks.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Solid preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed registered two sacks in Thursday's preseason game versus the Cardinals.

Reed was battling a hamstring issue, but it clearly didn't bother him during the preseason finale as he chased down Arizona's quarterbacks. The undrafted rookie made the 53-man roster, and he's expected to help on special teams but has minimal IDP upside behind Bradley Chubb and Von Miller (knee).

Broncos' Malik Reed: Injures hamstring Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed missed some practice time due to a hamstring injury Thursday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

The severity of Reed's hamstring injury remains unclear, but head coach Vic Fangio did say that Reed would likely miss Friday's practice as well. Aaron Wallace and Ahmad Gooden figure to see additional reps while Reed is sidelined.

Broncos' Malik Reed: Competing for backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed looks to be the third outside linebacker at this point in the preseason, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports.

Backup edge rushers Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett both departed this offseason, leaving a void behind Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Though unheralded and undrafted out of Nevada, Reed has been one of the most pleasant surprises of Denver's first two preseason games. Reed has recorded a sack in each contest and eight tackles overall. Reed's a bit of a tweener, but he managed to rack up 126 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss and 16 sacks in his final two seasons in Nevada's 3-3-5 scheme. That production seems to be carrying over to the pros.
