Winfree (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
The rookie sixth-round pick cropped up on the injury report with the hamstring injury Thursday and will miss the final three games of the season. Winfree appeared in three games in 2019 but did not record a catch.
Winfree did not practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Winfree didn't occupy a spot on Wednesday's injury report, so it's somewhat concerning to see him now sidelined due to a hamstring issue. The rookie sixth-round pick hasn't suited up for game action since Week 9, so there wouldn't be any notable fantasy ramifications if he were forced to miss any time.
Winfree was on the field for one offensive snap and 16 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 24-19 win over the Browns.
Despite some highlight-reel catches in the preseason, the local product has yet to see a target this season and was not a regular among the game-day actives until Emmanuel Sanders was traded two weeks ago. Winfree may struggle to stay on the field after the Broncos' bye, as Tim Patrick (hand) is expected to return from injured reserve shortly thereafter, at which point the game-day WR5 spot is likely to come down to Winfree and Fred Brown. If special teams is a determining factor, Brown may have the edge in experience.
Winfree could see more snaps following the trade of Emmanuel Sanders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Winfree has played only 10 offensive snaps this season and is without a catch, but Sanders being sent to San Francisco may open some chances in the offense. The 23-year-old should compete with Fred Brown for work as Denver's No. 3 wide receiver behind Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton.
Winfree is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with Green Bay.
Winfree was a coach's decision inactive the last two weeks. The rookie wide receiver will make his NFL debut but isn't likely to be more than a special teams player and depth option on offense.
Winfree (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Bears.
The rookie sixth-round pick is officially a healthy scratch. This won't shake up the Broncos' offense since he's listed as the No. 4 wideout anyway, so expect Diontae Spencer to see a slight uptick on his snap count this week.
Winfree (coach's decision) is expected to be inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Kils noted that the rookie was out early on the field doing some work, suggesting that he'll likely be a healthy scratch for the game. Winfree's absence from the game likely won't effect the offense from a fantasy perspective, considering he's buried on the receiver depth chart.
Winfree will work as the Broncos' No. 4 wide receiver Week 2 after Tim Patrick broke his hand Monday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
The rookie sixth-round pick was inactive for Monday's game while Patrick was limited to eight offensive snaps due to the injury. Winfree won't be stepping into a high-volume role, but it's a opportunity to prove himself after a solid showing in the preseason, as Patrick is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks, per Mike Klis of 9News Denver.
