Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/30/15 7:01pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) will get his walking boot off at some point this week, but there is still not definitive timeline for his return. For now he will continue to rehabilitate the injured foot.
Huddle Up: The biggest obstacle to Manning's return to the lineup right now isn't his health but the play of backup QB Brock Osweiler who is 2-0 as a starter and has the Broncos' offense running more smoothly than it did under Manning.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/26/15 11:28am ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) will be out at least three weeks as his foot is in a cast for the next 10 days. He'll need at least a week of rehab after that.
Huddle Up: More Brock Osweiler, and it's looking less and less likely that Manning returns by the end of the fantasy season. And if the Broncos are rolling towards the NFL playoffs under Osweiler, we may have seen the last of Manning in orange.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/25/15 6:59pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Sanders missed Sunday's win over the Bears after playing at far less than full health and failing to catch a pass the previous week so his status throughout the practice week will obviously have to be closely monitored.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/24/15 9:44pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot, ribs) will miss at least the next two weeks as he continues to recover from a partially torn plantar fascia and a rib injury, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Manning will still be able to participate in workouts and be a part of team meetings, but his foot will also be in a cast for at least a week.
Huddle Up: That puts Brock Osweiler at the helm for at least the matchups against the Patriots and Chargers and cover the rest of the regular season in most fantasy leagues. Adjust accordingly ...
Vernon Davis - TEPosted 11/24/15 9:59pm ET
The Denver Broncos used multiple tight end sets on 83.8 percent of their Week 11 plays with QB Brock Osweiler under center as opposed to using three-wide receiver sets 60 percent of the time with QB Peyton Manning playing. TE Vernon Davis was more involved as a result, and the Broncos' ground game was successful.
Huddle Up: It's bumped up the value of both Davis and Owen Daniels, but with the two drawing near-equal looks, it keeps both from being TE1 considerations.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/23/15 10:08am ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is 'absolutely determined' to get himself healthy, a source with knowledge of the situation said Sunday, Nov. 22. Manning firmly believes he will be able to play again this season. In addition, he currently intends to play in 2016, even if it will not be with the Broncos, the source said.
Huddle Up: Peyton is not ready to go quietly into that good night, but he's a few years older than the last time he faced a similar situation--coming off a significant injury, with questions about his ability to remain a high-level quarterback--and there may be fewer suitors this time around.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/23/15 3:21pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is not Denver's permanent starting quarterback for the rest of the season, according to sources. QB Peyton Manning (foot) is expected to start again once he is healthy.
Huddle Up: Manning hasn't played well this year but he's still Peyton Manning. Perhaps if Osweiler plays great against the Patriots this week things will change but Manning will likely regain his job once healthy.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 11/23/15 3:21pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will make another start against the New England Patriots in Week 12, according to team sources.
Huddle Up: Osweiler played well against the Bears and manning still isn't healthy. Things will get tougher for Osweiler this week though. Bill Belichick's defenses have traditionally tormented young quarterbacks.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/23/15 5:53pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Sanders hopes to play in Week 12, and added that Monday, Nov. 23, was the first day he didn't limp since suffering the injury. Sanders will be evaluated Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.
Huddle Up: Sanders missed Sunday's game but high-ankle sprains are usually multi-week injuries. His status will be updated later in the week. Cody Latimer will see increased snaps if Sanders can't play this week against New England.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/20/15 3:51pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Nov. 22, after practicing on a limited basis Friday. He's officially listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: It might be wise to look for other WR options this week after Sanders played at something less than 100 percent last Sunday, sustained a concussion on a wicked hit and finished without a catch.
Brock Osweiler - QBPosted 11/19/15 9:20am ET
Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler is confident heading into his first NFL start in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, and head coach Gary Kubiak does not plan to water down the offense to make it simpler for the quarterback. 'As far as volume of game plan and stuff, I'm very comfortable doing anything with him,' Kubiak said Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Osweiler might be more capable of running Kubiak's offense than Peyton Manning was, as Kubiak loves to use rollouts and Manning isn't particularly mobile. With a full week of first-team snaps Osweiler should be good to go with a full game plan this week.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/19/15 3:25pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger) was practicing without a helmet Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Sanders remains a definite question mark after playing at less than 100 percent last Sunday, finishing without a catch and then missing Wednesday's practice. See if there's any brighter news Friday.
Vernon Davis - TEPosted 11/19/15 3:25pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis was confused by his role in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs, as he played 35 snaps but had only two catches for 19 yards. His lack of production last week was largely a result of QB Peyton Manning's struggles. With QB Brock Osweiler starting in Week 11, the Broncos will look to establish the run, which means Davis and the other tight ends should be more of a factor in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Davis should finally be almost completely caught up with his new offense, and the bootleg play -- long a staple of the Gary Kubiak offense -- should be more in play this week with the more-mobile Osweiler at the controls. Davis, though, figures to still be sharing TE reps with Owen Daniels and should only be used if you're desperate at tight end.
Ronnie Hillman - RBPosted 11/19/15 6:30pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will remain the starter again in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, but RB C.J. Anderson will also see time.
Huddle Up: Hillman received 13 touches to Anderson's two last week and has scored in fantasy double digits in three of his last four games, but the Broncos' ground game remains inconsistent. Perhaps the QB change will lead to a bump in production.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/16/15 9:19am ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) left the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a head injury, and he is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Sanders was already dealing with other injuries heading into the Week 10 game; now he'll be working his way through the league's concussion protocol leading up to Denver's Week 11 contest.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/16/15 9:19am ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (rib, foot) was removed midway through the third quarter of the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He finished a dismal 5-of-20 for 35 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions. QB Brock Osweiler came on for him and generated 13 points of offense. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Manning will start 'if Peyton is healthy and ready to go, he's our quarterback.'
Huddle Up: While Peyton has been un-Peyton like for much of this season, he was uncharacteristically bad in Week 10. Kubiak alluded to Manning being more injured than we were led to believe; we'll see if he gets a week or two off to recover or if he's back in the saddle in Week 11.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/16/15 9:48am ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot, ribs) has a partially torn plantar fascia in his right foot, according to sources. Manning was battling plantar fasciitis, but his condition worsened.
Huddle Up: No word yet on how much--if any--time the injury will cost Manning, but if the injury is what led to the ineffectiveness we saw Sunday the Broncos better plan on Brock Osweiler for at least this week's game against the Bears.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/16/15 2:21pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is expected to sit out some games, possibly a couple of weeks, as he battles plantar fasciitis in his foot, according to a source. QB Brock Osweiler would step in as the Broncos starter if Manning misses any games. Osweiler was 14-for-24 for 146 yards and a touchdown and an interception in relief of Manning in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Brock Osweiler will start while Manning is out. He'll be a QB2 with upside in the Broncos' offense.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/16/15 7:57pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders injured his finger in a Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is still expected to have a normal week, however.
Huddle Up: Sanders dealt with an ankle issue last week that kept him out of practice and between that and his in-game concussion scare and the Broncos' offensive struggles, he finished without a catch for the first time as a Bronco. It can only go up from there.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/14/15 2:48pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (rib cage, foot) is dealing with an injury to his rib cage in addition to his foot injury but is still listed as probable for the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Manning is already having a disappointing fantasy season and now he's dealing with injuries. He does have a good matchup this week against the Chiefs though. Manning threw a season-high three touchdown passes against Kansas City back in Week 2. He's a low-end QB1 this week.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/13/15 3:46pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, shoulder) is a game-time decision for Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Sanders played through his early-game ankle injury Sunday in Indy, but has been unable to practice all week. Coach Gary Kubiak is hopeful the WR will be able to play, but Sanders' fantasy owners are in a bind with the Broncos' late-afternoon kickoff against the Chiefs. Have another WR option at the ready and be prepared to for some last-minute maneuvers Sunday.
Vernon Davis - TEPosted 11/13/15 6:15pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis will have an expanded role in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Davis is more comfortable with QB Peyton Manning and his audible language.
Huddle Up: Davis only had five days last week to prep for his Denver debut, and that was reflected with his nine snaps and one target against the Colts. Overall, thoughg, Denver has ramped up its tight-end usage since its Week 7 bye, and that could continue this week with WR Emmanuel Sanders questionable with an ankle injury. Take a flyer here if you're desperate at tight end.
Emmanuel Sanders - WRPosted 11/12/15 3:04pm ET
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, shoulder) is out of practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: That's two straight missed practices for Sanders injured his ankle in the first quarter last Sunday but came back after getting it wrapped and finished the contest with six catches for 90 yards and a TD. Friday now looms as a big day.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/12/15 3:04pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: It sound like practice-week business as usual in the Mile High City as Manning is back at it after taking his usual Wednesday rest day.
Peyton Manning - QBPosted 11/11/15 1:57pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning is expected to be on the Week 10 injury report with a foot injury he suffered in Week 9. He's expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: It also wouldn't be a surprise to see Manning take his usual Wednesday rest day from practice, either, so don't get alarmed unless Manning misses a Thursday or Friday workout.
Ronnie Hillman - RBPosted 11/11/15 8:06pm ET
Denver Broncos RBs Ronnie Hillman (quadriceps) and C.J. Anderson (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: The fantasy headache known as the Broncos' backfield continues. If you have to start Hillman or Anderson, hope one of them gets the hot hand. The more likely scenario is both backs will see touches to cancel each other out again this week.
Aqib Talib - CBPosted 11/10/15 8:12pm ET
Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib lost his appeal on a one-game suspension, and he will sit out in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: As expected, the Broncos' D will be without one of its top cover men Sunday, but it may the right matchup with the Chiefs still not exactly overflowing with WR depth.
Ronnie Hillman - RBPosted 11/6/15 4:03pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he is expected to start.
Huddle Up: Hillman has been limited most of the practice week by the thigh injury he suffered Sunday night but figures to take his usual share of the touches alongside C.J. Anderson.
Vernon Davis - TEPosted 11/6/15 5:42pm ET
Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis had a good week of practice with the team and will be active in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. The Broncos hope to use Davis in a limited amount of plays in his debut with the team.
Huddle Up: Limited is the operative word here as those who were thinking of using Davis might want to seek out a TE who has more upside in terms of volume.
Ronnie Hillman - RBPosted 11/5/15 6:52pm ET
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: It's a little concerning to see Hillman go from a full practice Wednesday to limited participation Thursday, but coach Gary Kubiak didn't sound too concerned Thursday, saying he expects Hillman to start Sunday's game in Indy.
