Broncos S Justin Simons (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He missed Wednesday's practice before returning for 2 limited days. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. Denver ruled EDGE Baron Browning (hip) out for the game.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. He’s averaged 3.0 targets over Denver’s last 4 games, so there’s minimal fantasy impact here.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Hamler is now looking unlikely to play vs. the Titans this weekend, which would leave behind a few extra targets for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Greg Dulcich.

Broncos S Justin Simmons (knee) and EDGE Baron Browning (hip) missed Wednesday's practice, though each was reportedly working on a side field. HC Nathaniel Hackett deemed each player day-to-day afterward, though it's never a good sign to miss the 1st practice coming out of a bye week. EDGE Randy Gregory also worked on a side field but remains on IR. He has been out since Week 4 with a knee injury. "We're going to start working him in, and we're hoping he gets back sooner rather than later," Hackett said, according to the team website. "He's really doing well in the rehab room."

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's a new injury coming off the bye week. We'll keep an eye on Hamler over the next few days, but he shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell is off the final injury report for Week 8. He missed the past 2 games after leaving Week 5 early with a knee injury. Jewell remained limited the 1st 2 practices this week but put in a full Friday and carries no game designation. He's fine as a low-LB2 or LB3 for fantasy football use this week and has moved up our Week 8 IDP rankings. LB Alex Singleton does not belong in IDP lineups with Jewell back. Denver also ruled EDGE Baron Browning (hip) out vs. the Jaguars.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy led the team in targets (11), receptions (7) and receiving yards (96) in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He accounted for 23.9% of QB Brett Rypien's 43 pass attempts, 29.2% of his completions and 42.7% of the receiving yards. Rookie TE Greg Dulcich following, tying WR Courtland Sutton for 2nd on the team at 9 targets. He caught 6 of them for 51 yards. Sutton managed just 3 receptions for 23 yards. We'll see about QB Russell Wilson's status (hamstring) for a Week 8 visit to Jacksonville.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His absence makes LB Alex Singleton an IDP starter once again. DL D.J. Jones (ankle) is active.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He missed last week's game after leaving Week 5 early. Jewell put in a pair of limited practices after sitting out Wednesday. We'll see about his status Sunday. If Jewell is active, Alex Singleton won't be usable in IDP lineups. DL D.J. Jones (ankle) is also questionable.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton mustered only 2 catches for 14 yards against the Chargers in Week 6. This outcome surfaced despite the Bolts benching starting CB J.C. Jackson in the 2nd half. Sutton saw only 3 targets, behind both Jerry Jeudy (7) and Mike Boone (4). Sutton entered the night with 50+ yards in 5 straight, so this performance was certainly an outlier. But it’s a reminder that this passing game will continue to carry volatility for at least the foreseeable future. Week 7 turns up a home matchup with the Jets.

Broncos TE Greg Dulcich made his NFL debut vs. the Chargers on Monday night and immediately stepped into the lead TE role. He paced Broncos TEs with a 71% snap rate and 79% route rate. Dulcich garnered 3 targets (an 11% share), catching 2 for 44 yards and Denver's only TD of the night. If the rookie can hang around an 80% route rate, he has a chance to be a viable fantasy option moving forward. Dulcich should be rostered in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.

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.

The Broncos have designated S Justin Simmons (thigh) to return from IR this week. The team also released 3 players Tuesday to make room on the 53-man roster for the injured guys to return. We'll watch this week to confirm that Simmons is ready for game action.

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.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett has called LB Josey Jewell "week to week" with the knee sprain that knocked him out of Thursday night's loss to the Colts. Alex Singleton figures to fill in for Jewell while he's out. We'll see whether Jewell has a chance to play in Week 6, but "week to week" from coaches usually means a player is expected to miss at least 1 game.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Colts with a knee injury and was then ruled out. We'll see about the specific diagnosis and expected return timeline. Alex Singleton filled in and got full playing time when Jewell missed the 1st 2 games of the year. We'll see whether he's the guy again if Jewell misses further time, or if LB Jonas Griffith gets more snaps.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. That obviously ends his season. Melvin Gordon becomes the obvious name as top candidate to take over the Denver backfield, but Mike Boone has seen significant use each of the past 2 games. He stepped in to run nearly as many routes as Williams and Gordon in Week 3, and then Boone played more than Gordon against the Raiders. Gordon entered Sunday with a neck issue that limited him for a couple of practices, but he finished with a full workout. He did take a 2nd-half trip to the medical tent but returned. We'll see just how the new backfield split plays out. Boone is at least worth a pickup in most fantasy football leagues.

Update: In addition to the torn ACL, Williams also has a torn LCL and posterior lateral corner, sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That figures to lengthen Williams' rehab timeline. We'll track his progress.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy rebounded in Week 4 with 4 catches for 53 yards and 1 score. His 5 targets ranked behind behind Courtland Sutton’s 7 and represented a 20% team share. The ‘Bama product caught a nice sideline deep ball from Russell Wilson and later made a slick sliding grab for his 2nd TD of 2022. Next up is a Thursday night home game vs. Indianapolis.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton scored his first TD of the season in Week 4. He added 5 catches for 52 yards on a team-high 7 targets (28%). Denver ran only 48 plays in a road loss to Vegas, but it was nice to see Sutton convert on his 3rd end zone target of the season. Losing RB Javonte Williams to a knee injury — potentially for an extended absence — might push this offense to more passing in the weeks ahead. Regardless, Sutton is locked in as a weekly starter.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams is "feared to have suffered a serious knee injury," a source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better look at the knee, "but there is not a lot of optimism surrounding the injury," Rapoport adds. We should get an official diagnosis on Williams tomorrow.
