Shark Bites

The Broncos are signing LB Josey Jewell to a 2-year, $11 million deal (with $6 million guaranteed), according to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver. Jewell saw some fluctuation in his role over his 1st 3 years with the team before tearing a pectoral muscle in Week 2 last season and missing the rest of the year. This contract points to Jewell retaining a starting gig for at least 2022. There have been reports of QB Russell Wilson recruiting former Seahawks teammate Bobby Wagner to Denver, but we'd bet on 2nd-year LB Baron Browning occupying the other off-ball LB post for the Broncos this season. Jewell figures to present some sleeper-type upside in LB3-4 range of IDP drafts this summer.

Recent Shark Bites

Broncos LB Josey Jewell (calf) was limited for Wednesday's practice. That matches his participation level from Friday's practice. Jewell entered Sunday's game against Houston questionable but missed his 2nd straight contest. Opening this week limited suggests he's likely nearing a return. We'll see if he's ready to face the 49ers on Sunday night. CB Patrick Surtain (shoulder) and EDGE Randy Gregory (knee) missed practice. Surtain left Week 2 with the injury. Gregory has played through the knee issue each of the 1st 2 games.

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.

The Broncos have LB Josey Jewell relaying plays in the defensive huddle, according to the Denver Post. It's a role Jewell filled last year, and it's not surprising given they brought him back on a sizable 2-year deal this offseason. The role puts Jewell in the green-dot helmet and should mean 3-down duty. That's obviously good for the IDP upside on a player who should stay on the board late into fantasy football drafts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos LB Josey Jewell tore a pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Jaguars and will miss the rest of the season. That let's Justin Strnad step into the starting lineup and makes him a deep-league option for IDP rosters. Alexander Johnson, meanwhile, should see his scoring floor rise as a better bet to lead the position in playing time.

Broncos LB Josey Jewell got no injury status on the week's final report, which means his injured hamstring is ready for game action. HC Vic Fangio said Friday, though, that Jewell "may not" start against the Titans, according to the team website. Will he at least rotate in, though? "Possibly," Fangio said. "Depends how the game goes." Alexander Johnson started in Jewell's place last week and delivered 8 tackles, an INT and a pass breakup. It sounds as though the coach liked what he saw in Johnson. The lack of clarity means we can't use either LB in most IDP cases. We'll see what Week 6 reveals.
