Broncos TE Noah Fant (leg) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He should be full-go for this weekend’s opener vs. the Giants.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (leg) progressed to a full practice on Thursday. He's ready to go for this weekend's opener vs. the Giants.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's expected to be available for this weekend's game vs. the Giants, but his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.

Broncos TE Noah Fant returned to practice on Monday. He missed a couple of weeks with a lower-leg injury but was always expected to be ready for Week 1. He can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

The Broncos don't expect TE Noah Fant to miss any regular-season time with his lower left leg injury, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Fant has missed the past few days of practice and won't play in the preseason finale. But this doesn't sound like a serious issue. We'll keep you updated.

Broncos HC Vic Fangio informed the team this morning that Teddy Bridgewater has won the starting QB job over Drew Lock. It looked like a dead heat until Bridgewater turned in an excellent outing in the 2nd preseason game, going 9 of 11 for for 105 yards and a TD. Bridgewater sits 10th among 80 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' preseason passing grades. Lock ranks 37th. Bridgewater isn't an exciting player or high-upside fantasy option. But he's steady and accurate. And Denver's strong group of pass-catchers could turn him into a spot-start option for fantasy teams this year. We like this news for the fantasy value on the Broncos' pass-catchers, especially WR Jerry Jeudy.

Broncos TE Noah Fant missed practice Tuesday with a “leg issue,” per HC Vic Fangio. NFL Network’s James Palmer spotted Fant jogging with a sleeve on his left leg, and the belief is that the injury is minor. We’re not altering his 2021 projection.

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. These rib injuries tend to be pain-management issues more than anything else. Fant is fine to get into fantasy lineups.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (ribs) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. 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. We’re expecting Fant to play on Sunday but will look for an update in the morning. Miami-Denver doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET.

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

Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. Fant averaged 7 targets, 4.7 catches and 61 yards over the first 3 weeks of the season. He’s back to TE1 status.

Broncos TE Noah Fant (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday. It looks like he's set to return for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. Fant averaged 7 targets, 4.7 catches and 61 yards over the first 3 weeks of the season. He immediately climbs back into TE1 territory.

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.
