Broncos TE Greg Dulcich has been activated for tonight's game vs. the Chargers. The rookie missed a bunch of practice time this spring and summer but has a chance to carve out a real role in this passing game the rest of the way. We'll be keeping a close eye on his usage tonight.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Tuesday that TE Greg Dulcich is ready to return to practice. The rookie missed time in the spring with a core-muscle injury and most of training camp with a hamstring. He probably has a lot of catching up to do, but Dulcich has a chance to eventually claim a significant role with TE Albert Okwuegbunam in the doghouse.

The Broncos placed TE Greg Dulcich (hamstring) on IR, knocking him out for at least the first 4 games of the season. It's not a surprise after the rookie missed most of the offseason with core and hamstring injuries. GM George Paton said Dulcich will "100%" be available come Week 5, but he's not worth stashing on standard redraft benches. TE Albert Okwuegbunam will have a chance to lay claim to the lead role in September.

According to The Athletic’s Nick Kosmider, TE Greg Dulcich’s Week 1 status is “in doubt.” Dulcich hasn’t been healthy all camp due to a nagging hamstring issue. At this point, the rookie is unlikely to make an early-season impact.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich has had his early training-camp time limited by a hamstring injury that he suffered during offseason work, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic. The rookie made it back to team drills last week, but Monday found him back on a side field. "Hamstrings are so weird; they are very difficult to get through," HC Nathaniel Hackett said. "As he goes through that, we're just making sure we're doing things the right way."

Broncos WR Tim Patrick tore his right ACL in Tuesday's practice, insider Mike Klis reports. Patrick will miss the entire 2022 season. The timing of the injury at least gives Patrick a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2023 campaign. He signed a 3-year, $34 million extension last November. We had Patrick projected for 85 targets, so this opens up a lot of potential volume for Denver's other pass catchers. WR Jerry Jeudy, WR Courtland Sutton, TE Albert Okwuegbunam and TE Greg Dulcich all get boosts in the rankings. But the biggest winner is WR K.J. Hamler, who has a clear path to the #3 job if he can make it back from last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich participated in individual drills on Monday for the first time in training camp. He had presumably been sidelined with the core injury he suffered this spring. Insider Mike Klis predicted on the Draft Sharks podcast that, although TE Albert Okwuegbunam would open the season as Denver's starter, that Dulcich would lead the group in fantasy points by season's end. We'll see if the rookie can start pushing for a role.

Broncos insider Mike Klis expects TE Albert Okwuegbunam to open the season as Denver's starter but TE Greg Dulcich to potentially overtake him by the 2nd half of the season. Klis notes that Dulcich has been getting 1st-team reps from the very first day of OTAs -- rare for a rookie. "I think Dulcich will have a few more catches than Albert O when it's said and done [this season], but you might have to be patient to get there. The first 4 or 5 games I think might be Albert O," Klis told us. That prediction surely comes as a surprise for fantasy drafters, who are taking Okwuegbunam as a top-16 TE and largely letting Dulcich go undrafted. The rookie could turn out to be a gem of a late-round pick if Klis is right. We'll keep a close eye on the situation in training camp and preseason action. Check out our entire conversation with Klis, which also hit on Denver's backfield and WR corps.

Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post says he has "flipped" to believing rookie TE Greg Dulcich will be ahead of Albert Okwuegbunam on the depth chart come Week 1. O'Halloran adds that "both players will have significant roles" but that praise from Broncos coaches since the draft factors into his expectation. This, of course, is just 1 beat writer's early opinion, well ahead of Dulcich's 1st training camp with the team. We're not altering fantasy outlooks at this point, but this is just 1 of multiple indications that a role competition is coming this summer.

The Broncos selected TE Greg Dulcich in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. An athletic, catch-first TE, Dulcich showed good post-catch ability while running routes at all levels of the field. The former walk-on combined for 68-1,242-10 over the past 2 seasons while playing under HC Chip Kelly. While a plus athlete, Dulcich is a bit undersized at 6’4, 243 pounds. In Denver, he'll immediately compete for snaps behind Albert Okwuegbunam.
