Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy injured his right arm in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. Texans. He went straight into the medical tent. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Update: Jeudy is questionable to return with a shoulder injury.

Update: Jeudy has been ruled out.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. LB Alex Singleton served as Denver's every-down LB in Jewell's absence last Monday night. We'll see whether that continues or if LB Jonas Griffith gains playing time in Week 2. Neither makes for an exciting IDP option this week. EDGE Randy Gregory (shoulder, knee) is active. He arrived questionable but played through such a tag in Week 1.

Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory (shoulder, knee) and LB Josey Jewell (calf) are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Gregory played through a questionable tag in Week 1, so we’d bet on him doing so again. Jewell missed Week 1. Alex Singleton worked as the lead LB in his absence and would carry tackle upside again if Jewell sits

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. It looks like he suffered a setback after playing 40 snaps in the opener. Hamler’s absence this weekend frees up a few targets for Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and Albert Okwuegbunam.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) has missed the first 2 practices of the week. He played 40 snaps in last week's opener but might have suffered a setback after last year's torn ACL and dislocated hip. We'll see how Hamler is listed on Friday's final injury report.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Wednesday that S Justin Simmons will miss "some time" with a thigh injury he suffered in Monday night's opener. NFL Network's James Palmer reports that he's "hearing" Simmons will land on short-term IR. That would mean at least 4 missed games. Caden Sterns and P.J. Locke look like the fill-in candidates. Denver also added S Anthony Harris to the practice squad Wednesday.

The 49ers signed RB Marlon Mack to their practice squad. San Francisco, of course, will be without RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) for the next couple of months. Mack couldn't make the Texans' roster, though, and is unlikely to be a factor with the 'Niners.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams totaled 108 yards in Monday’s road loss to Seattle. He played 38 snaps (vs. 27 for Melvin Gordon) but was out-carried by the veteran, 7-12. Williams delivered in fantasy on the strength of 11 catches for 65 yards. But his night should have been better, as he fumbled right at the goal line. Gordon actually fumbled in the same spot — so neither guy was benched for the miscue. At bottom, we’re likely headed for more games with heavy rotations going forward. Williams at least looks in peak tackle-breaking shape. Look for his efficient ways to continue Sunday vs. Houston.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton tallied 4 catches for 72 yards in Monday’s loss at Seattle. Sutton tallied 30 yards on a scramble-drill play, then drew an overthrown end zone target on the very next snap. Later, he drew a pass interference call on another deep pass. On the day, Sutton matched Jerry Jeudy in targets (7). It’s only a matter of time before the deep balls hit here, especially as the entire offense settles into a new system. Next up is a home date with Houston and top draft pick (CB) Derek Stingley.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy finished Week 1 with 4 grabs, 102 yards and 1 score. His first target didn’t come until late in the 2nd quarter, but Jeudy made it count on a 67-yard deep ball on 3rd and 2. He roasted the CB on that one and dodged 2 tacklers en route to the end zone. Jeudy added a late drop on a short-range pass, but the takeaway here remains overwhelmingly positive. He matched Courtland Sutton in targets (7) and led the team in yardage. Next up is a home game with Houston.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is active for tonight's game vs. the Seahawks. He'd been listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. There's a chance that Hamler is on some type of snap count tonight, his 1st action since last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds claimed 12 carries and 4 targets in Sunday's win over the Patriots, easily leading Mostert's 5 carries and 1 target. Neither guy offered impressive production, averaging 2.1 and 3.2 yards per carry, respectively. Edmonds did put up 4-40 receiving. Miami visits the Ravens next.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a calf injury that kept him out of practice both Friday and Saturday. That clears the way for Jonas Griffith to work as lead LB in the opener. Griffith missed most of the preseason with an elbow injury suffered early in the 1st exhibition, but he practiced in full all week and is off the injury report. Denver also lists EDGE Randy Gregory as questionable with shoulder and knee issues. We'd plan to not use Gregory in Week 1 IDP lineups, given the late kickoff.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (hip, knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week. We're expecting Hamler to be active on Monday, but it's possible that he's on some type of snap count in his first action since last September's torn ACL and dislocated hip. Hamler would be a shaky Week 1 fantasy play.

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He said last weekend that he was dealing with a "lower-body injury" but is evidently ready to go for Monday night's opener vs. the Seahawks. Okwuegbunam will be Denver's clear lead TE with rookie TE Greg Dulcich on IR.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds (groin) is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Edmonds is a borderline RB2 in PPR leagues in Sunday's matchup with a Patriots defense that struggled against RBs in the passing game last year.

The Dolphins upgraded RB Chase Edmonds (groin) to full practice participation Thursday. That suggests he should be ready to go without limits Sunday. We'll continue to watch for confirmation on that. We have Edmonds low in RB2 range in our Week 1 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins RB Chase Edmonds (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's the first we've heard of the injury. We're still tentatively expecting Edmonds to play vs. the Patriots on Sunday, but we'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days. Edmonds' absence would turn Raheem Mostert into Miami's lead back.

The Texans released RB Marlon Mack from their practice squad. He remains well off the redraft radar and certainly isn't a must-hold in dynasty. Houston added WR Chris Conley to the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam said he's dealing with a "lower-body" injury. He was held out of the preseason finale but said he could have played if it was a regular-season game. It sounds like Okwuegbunam will be fine for Week 1, but we'll keep an eye on his practice participation this coming week.
