Broncos WR Kendall Hinton (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He’s the favorite to serve as the #2 WR, with Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler out.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett told the team Saturday night that he's passing play-caller duties to QBs coach Klint Kubiak, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. We'll see how much of a difference that makes, but it can only be good news for an offense that has stunk. Denver ranks 22nd in yardage, dead-last in scoring and 31st in Football Outsiders' offensive DVOA. Kubiak called plays as OC last year for the Vikings, who finished 16th in DVOA, 14th in scoring and 12th in total yards.

Broncos WRs Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and K.J. Hamler (hamstring) are out for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. WR Kendall Hinton (shoulder) is listed as questionable. WR Courtland Sutton and TE Greg Dulcich should be Denver's top 2 targets in this weekend's plus matchup.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Raiders this weekend, but we'll get another update on Jeudy's status for that one tomorrow.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. While he reportedly avoided a significant injury, his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders is up in the air. For now, fantasy owners should prepare as if Jeudy won't play in that one. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler will miss the "next few weeks" with his hamstring injury, HC Nathaniel Hackett said Wednesday. Hamler has not been able to stay healthy as a pro, appearing in just 23 games over the past 3 seasons. He's not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues -- and his dynasty value is fading fast.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett labeled WR Jerry Jeudy "day to day" with a "minor" ankle injury. That jibes with the report we got from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport earlier today. Jeudy's status for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders remains uncertain, but it sounds like he won't miss more than 1 game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the ankle injury Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy suffered in Sunday's loss to the Titans is "mild." Per Rapoport, Jeudy is dealing with a strained muscle in the back of the ankle, and his status is "TBD" for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. Jeudy owners should still line up an alternative for Week 11, but it sounds like Jeudy has a chance to play in that game and, at minimum, won't be out very long.

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.

Saints WR Marquez Callaway is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Steelers. He's the odd man out with WR Jarvis Landry back. Landry joins Chris Olave and Tre'Quan Smith as New Orleans' top 3 WRs.

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.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) put in a full practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens after missing the previous 2 weeks. Trautman isn't a fantasy option but does put a slight dent in TE Juwan Johnson's outlook.
