Most Recent Shark Bites

NFL Network's James Palmer confirms that Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy will be back for Sunday's game vs. Washington. He's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 1. Jeudy racked up 6 catches on 7 targets for 72 yards in a little more than 1 half of action in the opener. He returns for a meeting with the league's worst defense in terms of adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs.

The Broncos on Monday acquired LB Kenny Young from the Rams. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Denver also sent a 6th-round pick in 2024 in exchange for Young and a 7th-rounder in 2024. The Broncos have endured numerous injuries at ILB, including losing both season-opening starters -- Josey Jewell and Alexander Johnson -- for the year. Young will obviously enter the mix at that spot, but we'll have to see whether he takes the playing-time lead from Justin Strnad. Denver gave up very little to acquire Young, who had clearly fallen out of favor with a Rams team that's also weak at ILB. Back in L.A., Troy Reeder figures to remain the playing-time leader at the position. No other non-edge LB has played more than 45 total snaps for the Rams so far this season.

Broncos OLB Von Miller hurt his left ankle in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Browns. He's questionable to return.

Update: The team has now ruled Miller out for the game.

The Broncos expect to get WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) back for Week 8, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. Jeudy has been sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the season opener. He was designated to return last Saturday, so he'll have had 2 weeks to ramp up before next Sunday's game vs. Washington. Jeudy should be rostered in all fantasy leagues at this point.

The forecast for tonight's Broncos-Browns game calls for sustained winds up to 20 mph and gusts around 30 mph. That's enough to impact some longer throws and kicks -- and another reason to expect this to be a low-scoring game.

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater (foot, quad) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Browns. He was limited in practice this week and listed as questionable. Bridgewater will be playing at less than 100% on the short week.

NFL Network's James Palmer confirms that Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater (foot, quad) is expected to start tonight's game vs. the Browns. He was limited in practice this week and seen limping around on Tuesday. Bridgewater won't be at 100% tonight and is a shaky fantasy play.

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater (foot, quad) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Browns. He was officially limited in practice all week. Bridgewater is expected to play tomorrow, but it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100%.

Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a foot injury but is expected to play vs. the Browns on Thursday night, HC Vic Fangio said. 9News' Mike Klis spotted Bridgewater limping out to the practice field on Tuesday, so this is definitely a situation to monitor over the next couple of days.

Broncos LB Alexander Johnson will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle Sunday against the Raiders. Johnson will hit free agency in the spring, ahead of his age-31 season. Denver is now down to Justin Strnad and Micah Kiser as the top 2 ILBs.

Broncos HC Vic Fangio said Monday that WR Jerry Jeudy's chance of playing vs. the Browns on Thursday night is "less than 50%." Jeudy was just designated to return from IR on Saturday after his Week 1 high-ankle sprain. A Week 8 return seems like the most likely scenario.

Broncos LB Alexander (A.J.) Johnson will have an MRI today to determine the extent of a chest injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Raiders, according to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. We'll update his status when more comes out.

Broncos S Kareem Jackson (back) is active for today’s game against the Raiders

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (hip) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He was listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. But we never heard any concern about his status. Gordon should continue to work in a timeshare with RB Javonte Williams today.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (hip) is expected to play vs. the Raiders today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gordon is listed as questionable, but we never heard any concern about his status. Expect him to continue splitting work with rookie RB Javonte Williams today.

The Broncos designated WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) to return from IR. He obviously won't play vs. the Raiders tomorrow but is eligible to practice this coming week. We'll see if Jeudy can get ready for next Thursday night's game vs. the Browns. A Week 8 return is probably more realistic. Grab Jeudy now if he was dropped in your league.

The Broncos promoted WR John Brown to the active roster. It looks like he'll play vs. the Raiders on Sunday after joining the team on Tuesday. We'd be surprised if Brown was ready for a significant role. He remains off the fantasy radar for now.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Raiders after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We haven’t heard anything to suggest that he’s in danger of missing this one, but his status is worth checking on Sunday morning.

Broncos S Kareem Jackson (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. We'll check his status Sunday afternoon.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (hip) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to play vs. the Raiders this weekend.
