by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (elbow) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Zac Stevens of reports.

Bolles was limited throughout practice this week with the elbow issue, but he wasn't in any real danger of missing time. Now healthy, Bolles will assume his usual starting role at left tackle for Week 2.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Zac Stevens of reports.

Coach Vic Fangio believes Bolles will be ready for Sunday, but after being limited in practice all week, it's no surprise that he'll carry an injury tag into Week 2.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Optioned declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver has declined the fifth-year option on Bolles' contract, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bolles was the Broncos' first-round pick in 2017, and he will now become an unrestricted free agent following the 2020 league year. His option would have been worth just over $11 million guaranteed, which was apparently too steep of a price. However, Denver did not draft any tackles that could potentially replace him in the 2020 NFL Draft, which indicates he still has a chance to prove his worth. Cutting down on penalties would presumably be a good start, as he has been flagged 46 times through 48 games in his career.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (illness) is not listed on the Broncos' injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.

Bolles participated fully at Friday's practice after being limited the day prior due to an illness. Barring any setbacks, he looks ready to resume his role at left tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's 34-16 loss to the Jets, Zac Stevens of reports.

The severity of Bolles' injury remains unknown. The 2017 first-round pick's participation in practice throughout the coming week should shed light on Bolles' health as well as his chances of suiting up against the Rams in Week 6.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Dressed in full pads Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (head) is a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.

Bolles left Monday's practice prematurely and was tested for a concussion after falling during a drill, but he's back in full pads during Tuesday's session. He'll likely see a majority of the work with the first team as the starting left tackle throughout training camp.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Exits practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles was carted off the field during Monday's practice due to a possible concussion, Denver7's Troy Renck reports.

Bolles fell during a drill, potentially suffering a concussion as a result. Andreas Knappe will likely see additional reps at left tackle until Bolles is able to return.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Cleared to suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (lower leg) is active Sunday for the Broncos' Week 3 game against the Bills, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Bolles was initially expected to miss multiple weeks after he was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and deep bone bruise in his lower leg following the Week 2 win over the Cowboys, but the offensive tackle progressed far quicker than even most optimists could have anticipated. The rookie was able to take the field for limited practices Thursday and Friday, which was enough to convince the Broncos' coaching staff that he would be ready to go for Sunday.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Expected to play in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (lower leg) is expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After being carted off the field last week in the Broncos' win over the Cowboys, Bolles looked destined to miss time, but the rookie offensive tackle's injury wasn't as serious as initially feared. Though he was diagnosed with a lower-leg bruise and high-ankle sprain, Bolles was still able to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, creating optimism he'd be back on the field in Week 3. It appears that will indeed be the case, though the Broncos will wait to see that Bolles completes pregame warmups without incident before deeming him active.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (lower leg) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bills, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

Bolles returned to practice Thursday and seems to have favorable odds of playing.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles (lower leg) returned to practice Thursday, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.

Bolles is still recovering from a lower-leg bruise that forced him to get carted off the field in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but it looks like that recovery process is going well. Bolles was originally given a timetable of multiple weeks, but with the tackle already returning to practice, he could be back on the field even sooner than that.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Out a couple of weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles suffered a high-ankle sprain and deep bone bruise in Sunday's 42-17 win over the Cowboys and is out for a couple of weeks, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

This is good news for Bolles, as he was originally thought to have injured his Achilles, but the ankle injury will keep him out for a short time instead. The first-round pick should be considered week-to-week at this point.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles' X-rays came back negative, confirming he doesn't have an Achilles injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Bolles dodged a bullet here, as an Achilles injury likely would've planted him on the sidelines for an extended period of time. He'll undergo further testing and should have a more conclusive diagnosis in the coming days.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Feared to have Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos fear Bolles suffered an Achilles injury during Sunday's victory over the Broncos, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

Depending on the severity of the injury, Bolles could be out for the entire season, particularly if he ruptured his Achilles. The rookie left the stadium with a walking boot on his left leg and will presumably undergo further testing Monday.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Wins starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolles will open the season as the Broncos' starting left tackle, according to the team's official site.

Selected with the 20th overall pick, the Utah product was counted on to come out and win the job and, after an early-camp battle with 2015 second-rounder Ty Sambrailo, he never really looked back. The freakishly athletic Bolles represents a changing of the guard up front for a Denver line that might feature four new starters to start the season. As he showed in the second preseason game against the 49ers, however, his penchant for staying aggressive can sometimes lead to costly penalties.

Broncos' Garett Bolles: Taken 20th by the Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos selected Bolles in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 20th overall.

The Broncos made a couple offseason free agency additions to the offensive line, but adding Bolles gives them a nice final assurance on a very necessary rebuild. Bolles will be a 25-year-old rookie and isn't a big, strong tackle that most envision in the first round, but he's a rare athlete at the position who projects very well for zone-blocking tasks at the very least.
