The Denver Post reports that Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. That will end the rookie's season after 15 targets over his past 4 games. Noah Fant had another ankle scare against Atlanta, which had already cost him Week 6. But Fant returned to finish out the Atlanta game. Nick Vannett will now work as the #2 behind Fant. Jake Butt landed on IR earlier this month with a hamstring injury.

The Broncos selected Missouri TE Albert Okwuegbunam in the 4th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Albert O brings a freaky combination of size and speed. The 6’5, 258-pounder blazed a 4.49-second 40-yard dash at the Combine. His 127.0 Speed Score is 3rd best among all TEs since 2000 — notably ahead of guys like Evan Engram, O.J. Howard and Noah Fant. Okwuegbunam disappointed with a 23-306-6 line without QB Drew Lock last year. But he tallied 415 yards and a 11 scores as a true freshman in 2017 and then caught 43 balls for 466 yards and 6 scores in 2018. Okwuegbunam missed 5 games over the last 2 seasons with shoulder injuries and looks a bit straight-linish on tape. But that size-speed combo makes him an intriguing fantasy prospect. He reunites with Lock in Denver and, alongside Noah Fant, gives the Broncos the fastest TE duo in the league.
