Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) won't start training camp on the PUP list, HC Vic Fangio said. Sutton is still rehabbing last September's torn ACL and MCL. But he'll evidently at least be ready for some work at the start of camp and is on track to be on the field for the season opener. We'll continue to track his progress.
According to ESPN's Jeff Legwold, Broncos HC Vic Fangio said this month that he "fully" expects WR Courtland Sutton to be ready for the regular season. That follows in line with other positive offseason reports on the 4th-year wideout. Sutton, of course, is working back from a Week 1 ACL tear. The team will monitor him throughout summer workouts and likely keep him on some sort of pitch count for preseason games and training-camp practices. We'll certainly watch reports on Sutton throughout the summer. His current ADP just outside the top 30 at WR, though, makes him easy to take some chances on.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton has resumed jogging as he works his way back from September's torn ACL. “I’m very grateful to be on-track and be feeling good with the spot I’m in," Sutton told the Denver Post. The timing of Sutton's injury means that he should be ready to go for the start of the 2021 campaign. The 25-year-old broke out for a 72-1,112-6 line in his 2019 sophomore season, finishing 19th among WRs in PPR points. QB play is still a concern in Denver, but Sutton should at least be drafted as an upside WR3 in early best balls.
Broncos WR Courtland Sutton suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That obviously ends Sutton's season. It also likely means a starting spot going forward for Tim Patrick, who led Broncos wideouts in snaps at Pittsburgh. Jerry Jeudy's target ceiling climbs as well, but he'll be playing with backup QB Jeff Driskel for the next 2-6 weeks. Perhaps that's not truly a downgrade from Drew Lock (AC joint sprain), but this promises to be a volatile pass offense going forward. Sutton might be worth a price check on the buyer's market for dynasty owners. He'll be 25 when the 2021 season begins.
Update: Sutton also reportedly tore the MCL in the same knee. We'll see about his recovery in the offseason.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Broncos WR Courtland Sutton is feared to have suffered a "significant" knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. He's undergoing an MRI. Sutton's absence would elevate rookie WR Jerry Jeudy to the top of the depth chart. Fellow rookie WR K.J. Hamler debuted in Week 2 and caught 3 of 7 targets for 48 yards while playing 62% of the offensive snaps. Denver also has WRs Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton. Of course, QB Drew Lock's shoulder injury hurts the upside on all of these guys.
