Broncos LB Von Miller returns to scene of Super Bowl MVP

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Von Miller had some pretty good flashbacks when he arrived at Levi's Stadium for the first time since winning the Super Bowl MVP here just over 18 months ago. The stakes were far lower for a joint practice between his Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers than they were for that Super Bowl win over Cam Newton and Carolina in February 2016 but that didn't stop the memories. ''Walking onto the field this morning, it's a whole lot different,'' Miller said.

Defensive end Jared Crick is the latest victim of the Denver Broncos' injury outbreak. Crick is the 10th Denver defender - and the sixth member of the D-line - to get hurt this offseason.

Charles soon gets to prove he’s still a playmaker in the NFL

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

The Denver Broncos will soon discover if Jamaal Charles is still Jamaal Charles. Coach Vance Joseph says he'll take the bubble wrap off the veteran running back sometime this preseason, but he isn't sure if that will be against the 49ers, Packers or Cardinals. Joseph has said all along he'll take it slow with Charles but he did acknowledge that yes, he probably has to see Charles play in the preseason to keep him on the 53-man roster.

Broncos’ Derek Wolfe: I ‘dodged a bullet’ on ankle injury

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe took to social media on Saturday to say he "dodged a bullet'' with a right ankle injury after he was carted off the field during practice. Wolfe found himself in a pile during a running play during a team drill early in practice and stayed down. Trainers helped Wolfe onto a cart, and he was taken to the locker room. Tackle Menelik Watson limped, flexing his own right leg following the play.? Wolfe later expressed on Twitter his relief that the injury wasn't as serious as it initially appeared when trainers helped him into the Broncos' complex, as he couldn't put weight on his right leg. Wolfe also posted a picture of his swollen ankle

Shanahan updates Buckner’s status after exiting early in preseason opener

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Defensive end DeForest Buckner aggravated a low-ankle sprain in the 49ers’ exhibition opener Friday night and is not expected to be available for this week’s game against Denver Broncos. Buckner originally sustained a left ankle sprain during practice on Wednesday, Aug. 2. He missed three practices. Coach Kyle Shanahan said on a conference call with Bay Area reporters on Saturday that the plan is for Buckner to be held out of practice this week and not participate in the upcoming exhibition game against the Denver Broncos. "It won't be a long thing, but I'd be surprised this week versus Denver," Shanahan said. "He keeps doing the same thing over and over again. We're going to rest him a bit and

Broncos’ Derek Wolfe leaves practice with right leg injury

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Defensive end Derek Wolfe exited Saturday's practice with a right ankle injury, sending tremors into the final workout open to fans at Dove Valley.  Coach Vance Joseph remained cautiously optimistic. "We are not sure how bad. We are kind of assuming it's not that bad," said Joseph.  Wolfe will undergo an MRI, leaving the team holding their breath until the final results.  A versatile inside force who plays with an edge, Wolfe tangled legs with starting right tackle Menelik Watson on a running play moments after team drills started. Wolfe left the field in a cart with his right leg straight out as he leaned back. Upon leaving the cart, he limped into the locker room with the

Fantasy Football rankings 121-140: Most overrated, underrated and safest pick

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

The Broncos are among the best in the league in takeaways, and when they get the ball in their hands, they know what to do with it, finishing in the top seven in non-offensive touchdowns each of the past two seasons, per Team Rankings. But it’s not worth drafting a defense this early. Not only was the Broncos DST third (not first) in points per game last year, but the difference between that group and say, the Cardinals, who averaged just 0.4 points per week fewer, is massive.
