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 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.

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 are signing LB Josey Jewell to a 2-year, $11 million deal (with $6 million guaranteed), according to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. Jewell saw some fluctuation in his role over his 1st 3 years with the team before tearing a pectoral muscle in Week 2 last season and missing the rest of the year. This contract points to Jewell retaining a starting gig for at least 2022. There have been reports of QB Russell Wilson recruiting former Seahawks teammate Bobby Wagner to Denver, but we'd bet on 2nd-year LB Baron Browning occupying the other off-ball LB post for the Broncos this season. Jewell figures to present some sleeper-type upside in LB3-4 range of IDP drafts this summer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos LB Josey Jewell tore a pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Jaguars and will miss the rest of the season. That let's Justin Strnad step into the starting lineup and makes him a deep-league option for IDP rosters. Alexander Johnson, meanwhile, should see his scoring floor rise as a better bet to lead the position in playing time.
