Broncos LB Josey Jewell (calf) was limited for Wednesday's practice. That matches his participation level from Friday's practice. Jewell entered Sunday's game against Houston questionable but missed his 2nd straight contest. Opening this week limited suggests he's likely nearing a return. We'll see if he's ready to face the 49ers on Sunday night. CB Patrick Surtain (shoulder) and EDGE Randy Gregory (knee) missed practice. Surtain left Week 2 with the injury. Gregory has played through the knee issue each of the 1st 2 games.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. LB Alex Singleton served as Denver's every-down LB in Jewell's absence last Monday night. We'll see whether that continues or if LB Jonas Griffith gains playing time in Week 2. Neither makes for an exciting IDP option this week. EDGE Randy Gregory (shoulder, knee) is active. He arrived questionable but played through such a tag in Week 1.

Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory (shoulder, knee) and LB Josey Jewell (calf) are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Gregory played through a questionable tag in Week 1, so we’d bet on him doing so again. Jewell missed Week 1. Alex Singleton worked as the lead LB in his absence and would carry tackle upside again if Jewell sits

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Wednesday that S Justin Simmons will miss "some time" with a thigh injury he suffered in Monday night's opener. NFL Network's James Palmer reports that he's "hearing" Simmons will land on short-term IR. That would mean at least 4 missed games. Caden Sterns and P.J. Locke look like the fill-in candidates. Denver also added S Anthony Harris to the practice squad Wednesday.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a calf injury that kept him out of practice both Friday and Saturday. That clears the way for Jonas Griffith to work as lead LB in the opener. Griffith missed most of the preseason with an elbow injury suffered early in the 1st exhibition, but he practiced in full all week and is off the injury report. Denver also lists EDGE Randy Gregory as questionable with shoulder and knee issues. We'd plan to not use Gregory in Week 1 IDP lineups, given the late kickoff.

Broncos LB Jonas Griffith has a chance to be ready for the regular-season opener after hyperextending his left elbow in the 1st preseason game. "Yeah, we're definitely hoping for Jonas to be ready Week 1," HC Nathaniel Hackett told the team website Wednesday. "That's kind of our aiming point. We very much dodged a bullet on that one." Griffith isn't yet a lock for the opener and has been working on a side field so far this week. But this is much better news than the initial 4-6 week expected return timeline. We've moved Griffith back up our IDP rankings some and consider him late-draft sleeper with big upside.

The Broncos on Tuesday released LB Joe Schobert. They signed him earlier this month after LB Jonas Griffith suffered an elbow injury. Alex Singleton and Justin Strand worked ahead of Schubert in the preseason game at Buffalo, however. The Denver Post reports that Griffith was working on a side field during Tuesday's practice and that he hasn't yet been ruled out for Week 1.

The Broncos activated EDGE Randy Gregory off the PUP list Monday. He has been working back from offseason shoulder surgery, but it was an issue known to the team before Gregory signed a big-money deal in free agency. "(The shoulder issue) was something I've been dealing with for 2, 3 years now," he said, according to The Denver Post. "We got to the point where it was kind of hindering my play, so (the surgery) was something that was important for me to do long term, for the good of the team." Gregory added that he expects to be ready for the regular-season opener.

Broncos LB Jonas Griffith dislocated his left elbow in Saturday night's preseason opener and is expected to miss about 6 weeks, according to Troy Renck of Denver7. Griffith has been in line to start at ILB next to Josey Jewell. In the wake of his injury, the Broncos signed veteran LB Joe Schubert. We'll see about Griffith's actual return timeline and how the team proceeds at the position.

Broncos LB Jonas Griffith left in the 1st half of Saturday night's preseason opener with a left-arm injury. We'll see about the severity.

The Broncos have LB Josey Jewell relaying plays in the defensive huddle, according to the Denver Post. It's a role Jewell filled last year, and it's not surprising given they brought him back on a sizable 2-year deal this offseason. The role puts Jewell in the green-dot helmet and should mean 3-down duty. That's obviously good for the IDP upside on a player who should stay on the board late into fantasy football drafts.

The Broncos placed DE Randy Gregory on the physically unable to perform list ahead of training camp. Gregory is returning from shoulder surgery but is expected to be ready for the season. The large contract ($28 million guaranteed) that Denver gave him in free agency says the team assumes he'll be just fine.

Mike Klis of 9News in Denver predicted on our podcast Friday that Broncos LB Jonas Griffith will join Josey Jewell in the starting lineup this season. Ourlads already lists Griffith in that spot on their Broncos depth chart. Klis added that he wouldn't be surprised to see Griffith stay on the field for 3rd downs -- even ahead of Jewell, who signed a 2-year, $11 million extension in March, including $6 million guaranteed. Griffith emerged to start the final 4 games of last season amid myriad LB injuries for the Broncos. That followed 2 years spent mostly on practice squads for San Francisco and Denver after Griffith went undrafted out of Indiana State. He sports enviable size (6'4, 250), though, a strong speed score and a good record of college production. As a guy likely to be available late into IDP drafts this summer, Griffith could be a season-altering sleeper if he approaches his ceiling.

The Broncos grabbed EDGE Nik Bonitto in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. He racked up 26.5 tackles for loss over the past 2 seasons at Oklahoma, including 16 sacks. Bonitto checks in a little small for the position – 6’3, 248 pounds – but ran fast at the Combine. His 4.54-second 40-yard dash registered a 92nd-percentile speed score. He figures to draw an LB designation at least early in Denver, where he might also be blocked early from big playing time.

Broncos CB Ronald Darby (shoulder) and LB Kenny Young (concussion) are inactive for today's game against the Chargers. With Baron Browning out on the COVID list, LB Jonas Griffith looks like an upside play vs. the Chargers. DE Dre'Mont Jones (foot), S Kareem Jackson (back, shoulder) and DE Shelby Harris (ankle) are active.
