Broncos QB Russell Wilson finished Sunday's game with his 2nd-largest passing-yardage total of the season. His 286 yards were his most since Week 1. But so were his 42 attempts. Wilson completed just half of those, while taking 6 sacks and tossing an INT. He did manage an OK 6.8 yards per attempt, thanks in part to a 66-yard TD connection with rookie WR Jalen Virgil. WR Courtland Sutton led the team with 11 targets, 6 receptions and 66 yards (tying Virgil). Denver was missing WR K.J. Hamler and lost WR Jerry Jeudy during the game. WR Kendall Hinton and RB Melvin Gordon tied for 2nd on the team with 4 catches apiece. Rookie TE Greg Dulcich endured a disappointing day, catching just 1 of 4 targets for 11 yards. The Broncos face a more generous Raiders defense in Week 11.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett didn't have a diagnosis on WR Jerry Jeudy's ankle injury after the loss to the Titans but did say, “We’re hoping that we dodged a bullet there.” That might suggest that Jeudy avoided a serious injury. We should learn more tomorrow.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy suffered an apparent left leg injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Titans. He was able to limp off under his own power. We'll update Jeudy's status when we know more.

Update: Jeudy is officially questionable to return with an ankle injury.

Update: Jeudy has been downgraded to out.

The Broncos have downgraded S Justin Simmons (knee) to out for today's game against the Titans. P.J. Locke looks like the next man up, with S Caden Sterns on IR. Locke -- in his 3rd season -- has never started an NFL game and thus doesn't make for a terrific IDP option this week.

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 QB Russell Wilson is off the Week 10 injury report. The hamstring injury that cost him Week 7 shouldn't be a problem moving forward. We'll see if Wilson and the Denver offense can get on track coming out of the bye.

The Broncos again started RB Melvin Gordon in Sunday morning's win over the Jaguars, and he played 7 more snaps than RB Latavius Murray. But Murray garnered 5 more carries and outproduced Gordon on the ground. He posted a 14-46-1 rushing line to Gordon's 9-29-1. Gordon did run twice as many routes and beat Murray in targets (4-2) receptions (3-1) and receiving yards (23-13). Expect the veterans to continue splitting the work after a Week 9 bye.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson made it through his return from the hamstring injury in Sunday morning's victory over the Jaguars. He threw for 252 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on 18-of-30 passing, adding 17 yards on the ground. Wilson targeted WR Jerry Jeudy most (7 times), connecting for a 6-63-1 receiving line. TE Greg Dulcich led the team with 87 receiving yards on 4 catches, finishing 2nd in targets (5). WR Courtland Sutton drew just 4 looks and caught only 1 for 13 yards. Denver likely welcomes a Week 9 bye and then gets 3 straight soft pass defenses: Titans, Raiders, Panthers.

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 QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and will start Sunday morning’s game vs. Jaguars in London. Wilson is only an option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Friday morning that QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) will start Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars, barring a setback between now and then. Wilson, of course, had been struggling even before this hamstring injury. He's just a QB2 in Week 8 fantasy lineups, but we'd still consider him a tangible upgrade over QB Brett Rypien.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's tentatively expected to play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday morning, but we'll see how he's listed on tomorrow's final injury report.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) said Wednesday that he's "feeling good" and "ready to rock." It sounds like he's planning on playing vs. the Jaguars on Sunday morning, we'll track his practice participation the rest of the week. Wilson, of course, was struggling even before this hamstring injury, so he's not a recommended Week 8 fantasy play.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Monday that QB Russell Wilson is "trending" toward playing against the Jaguars in London on Sunday. Wilson missed Sunday's loss to the Jets with a partial hamstring tear. "He did everything he could to try to be there, but it was just a little early with that short week," Hackett added. "So hopefully, we’ll see him out there and if not, we’ll be smart with him too.” Denver does have a Week 9 bye following this game. We'll see if that factors into the starting-QB decision.

3:50pm EDT 10/24/22

The Broncos placed RB Mike Boone (ankle) on IR. As a result, the team signed veteran RB Marlon Mack to the practice squad. For now, they’ll move forward with a 1-2 punch of Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray. Gordon out-carried Murray 11-8 in Week 7.

The Broncos are signing RB Marlon Mack off the 49ers' practice squad. Per 9News' Mike Klis, the team hopes to get Mack to Denver in time for this afternoon's flight to London. The move suggests that RB Mike Boone will miss at least Sunday's game vs. Jacksonville with his ankle injury. Don't expect Mack to see much action, though, behind RBs Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray.
