Broncos HC Vic Fangio said earlier this month that he expects TE Albert Okwuegbunam to be limited at the start of training camp. "Probably not right off the bat full speed," he said, referring to Okwuegbunam and CB Essang Bassey, both coming off ACL tears. "They'll have to be managed, but the both are doing very well." We'll see about Okwuegbunam's participation as camp gets going, but being active at any level seems like a positive coming off a November ACL tear. Of course, any limitations for him can only be good news for Noah Fant's target opportunity.
Broncos TE Noah Fant is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Panthers with an illness. We'll update his status when we know more.
Broncos QBs Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles have tested negative for COVID and been cleared to return to the team. Lock will be back under center for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. That puts guys like WR Jerry Jeudy and TE Noah Fant back in play for Week 12 fantasy lineups.
Broncos QBs Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, Blake Bortles and Jeff Driskel are all ineligible to play against the Saints on Sunday due to COVID contract tracing concerns to Driskel, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We'll see whether this game gets played tomorrow -- and what the hell Denver does on offense if it does. Insider Mike Klis throws out Kendall Hinton as an option at QB. He's on Denver's practice squad as a WR but was a 3-year starting QB at Wake Forest. This is a mess and you should try to avoid all Broncos in Week 12 fantasy lineups.
Broncos TE Noah Fant (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He got in a full practice on Friday — and the ankle that he’s been struggling with isn’t listed on the injury report this week. Fant is safe to get into fantasy lineups.
Broncos TE Noah Fant (ribs) is expected to play against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fant got in a limited practice on Thursday and a full workout on Friday.

The ankle that’s bothered him for the past few weeks is off the injury report, but now he’s dealing with this rib issue.

The Denver Post reports that Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. That will end the rookie's season after 15 targets over his past 4 games. Noah Fant had another ankle scare against Atlanta, which had already cost him Week 6. But Fant returned to finish out the Atlanta game. Nick Vannett will now work as the #2 behind Fant. Jake Butt landed on IR earlier this month with a hamstring injury.
Broncos TE Noah Fant injured his right ankle at the end of a 1st-quarter catch in Atlanta. He's officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.
Update: Fant returned in the 2nd quarter.
Broncos WR Tim Patrick (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday. He's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. Patrick's absence would free up targets for WRs Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler and TEs Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam

The Broncos have downgraded TE Noah Fant (ankle) to out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. That leaves Nick Vannett and Jake Butt as the top TEs for what's already 1 of the league's worst offenses. Removing 1 of Denver's top playmakers also makes the New England defense an even stronger play.
Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Patriots after a limited week of practice. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but Fant will obviously come with elevated risk if he suits up.
Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. His status for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots remains uncertain. We'll get another update on Thursday afternoon.
Broncos QB Drew Lock (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That presumably puts him on track to return for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Lock will be just a low-end QB2 for that one, but his return is excellent news for Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and Noah Fant.
Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) is out for Monday night's game against the Patriots. He didn't practice all week and should be considered questionable for Week 6. Denver will roll with TEs Jake Butt, Nick Vannett and rookie Albert Okwuegbunam vs. New England. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Broncos HC Vic Fangio called TE Noah Fant (ankle) a "long shot" for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Fantasy owners need to be making other plans. Fant's absence would leave Denver with TEs Jake Butt, Nick Vannett and rookie Albert Okwuegbunam. None can be trusted in fantasy lineups.
