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 HC Nathaniel Hackett said after Sunday's loss to the Jets that QB Russell Wilson is “trending in that direction” of playing next week against the Jaguars in London. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Wilson has a partially torn hamstring, which tends to be a multi-week injury. The Broncos also have a Week 9 bye, which might play into the decision of whether to play Wilson vs. Jacksonville. We'll keep you updated on his status throughout this coming week.

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 QB Russell Wilson has a partially torn hamstring, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. That tends to be a multi-week injury, per Rapoport, so "there was virtually no chance" Denver was letting Wilson play vs. the Jets today. The Broncos play the Jaguars in London next week and then get a Week 9 bye, so it seems likeliest that Week 10 is the next time we see Wilson. We'll see how QB Brett Rypien fares today.

The Broncos plan to start QB Brett Rypien in Sunday’s game against the Jets. QB Russell Wilson will be out with his injured hamstring. That decision was reportedly made after a Saturday throwing session for Wilson. This matchup already looked good for the Jets’ D; it certainly doesn’t look any worse now. Check out the updated projections for the Rypien-led Broncos.

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 QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. HC Nathaniel Hackett called him a game-time decision on Friday. Wilson, of course, was struggling before dealing with this hamstring injury. Hopefully you don’t need him in Week 7 fantasy lineups. If Wilson is out this weekend, Denver would turn to QB Brett Rypien.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson is "optimistic" that he'll be able to play vs. the Jets on Sunday, according to The Athletic's Nick Kosmider. “I feel better every day," Wilson said Wednesday. "I heal quick." We'll monitor Wilson's status over the next few days, but hopefully you don't need to use him in a Week 7 fantasy lineup.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson is considered "day-to-day" with his hamstring injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's good news relative to today's earlier report that the injury was "fairly significant," but Wilson still seems uncertain for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. We'll keep a close eye on him over the next few days. Wilson has disappointed so far, but backup QB Brett Rypien would be a significant downgrade for the offense.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson's hamstring injury could be "fairly significant," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said Tuesday. Wilson is getting an MRI to get a better look at the damage, but it sounds like his status for at least Week 7 is in question. QB Brett Rypien is Denver's backup. We'll pass along an update on Wilson when we get one.

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 HC Nathaniel Hackett revealed after Monday night's OT loss to the Chargers that QB Russell Wilson hurt a hamstring in the 2nd half, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. Wilson got treatment after the game and will have further testing on the issue today. Week 7 holds a Sunday home date 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 Albert Okwuegbunam is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Chargers. He played just 16 snaps over the past 2 weeks and lost his spot on the active roster tonight to rookie TE Greg Dulcich. Okwuegbunam is not worth stashing in redraft fantasy leagues.

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.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (right shoulder) put in a full practice Friday. That’s good news for his status ahead of Monday night’s game. It’s tough to expect an uptick in his performance, though, which lagged ahead of the shoulder issue.

Broncos QB Russell Wilson (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Thursday -- 6 days removed from receiving an injection in his throwing shoulder. Wilson is expected to play vs. the Chargers on Monday night, but he'd be a shaky fantasy play.

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.
