The Broncos have opened extension talks with contract-year SS T.J. Ward.
Ward is entering the final season of a four-year, $22.5 million contract. He's been a solid run-stopping presence on the back end for Denver, but isn't a lock to be re-signed. The Broncos gave Darian Stewart an extension last year and have 2016 third-rounder Justin Simmons as an in-house replacement. Ward hasn't set any deadlines for a new deal. May 26 - 6:44 PM

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (concussion) is out for Week 17 against the Chiefs.

Ward hasn't played since suffering a concussion late in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to New England. There was no reason for him to come back this week with Denver already eliminated. Ward will finish the year with 87 tackles, one interception and three forced fumbles over 14 appearances.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (concussion) is out for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

Ward suffered the injury late in Sunday's loss to New England. Will Parks will likely draw the start in his absence. The Broncos will also be without top inside linebacker Brandon Marshall, who is still nursing a hamstring injury.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward is in the concussion protocol.

Ward played 74-of-75 defensive snaps against New England in Week 15, so it's unclear when he got hurt. Most of the league is playing on Saturday this week but the Broncos will head to Kansas City Sunday for a game on Christmas night. That gives Ward a little more time, but there's still no guarantee he'll be through the concussion protocol by then. Will Parks would draw the start at strong safety if Ward can't get the nod in Week 16.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were upgraded to probable for the Super Bowl.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were limited in Wednesday's practice.

Both were listed as questionable on last week's injury report. It puts them on track to play in the Super Bowl. The Broncos should have all their defensive starters against the Panthers.
Wed, Feb 3, 2016 07:08:00 PM

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle, questionable) vowed to play in the Super Bowl.

"Anytime you get an opportunity to play in this game, and you can run a little bit, I'm guaranteeing you're going to be out there," Ward said. Fellow banged-up FS Darian Stewart (knee, questionable) echoed Ward's sentiment. "Without a doubt in my mind, I'm playing." Despite not practicing this week, both players should play against the Panthers.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) are listed as questionable for next week's Super Bowl against the Panthers.

The injury designations aren't official, but neither player practiced this week. Both should be available for the Super Bowl. RCB Chris Harris (shoulder) is probable.
Fri, Jan 29, 2016 05:21:00 PM

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Fri, Jan 29, 2016 02:12:00 PM

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were listed as "DNP" on the Wednesday injury report.

Denver did not actually practice on Wednesday, but Ward and Stewart would not have participated had a practice been held. Both players have said they will play in the Super Bowl, and they have plenty of time to heal up before the big game on February 7. The Broncos will have their first real practice on Thursday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos SS T.J. Ward is expected to be ready for the Super Bowl after aggravating his ankle injury in the AFC Championship Game.

This is what Ward himself said on Monday. Ward missed most of the second half against the Patriots, but has two weeks to heal up for the big game.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) said he will play in the Super Bowl.

Ward aggravated a lingering ankle injury in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship and never returned. Players are usually optimistic about their injuries, but Ward has been playing through the ankle issue for several weeks. Unless he made the injury worse, there is little chance he will sit out the Super Bowl. FS Darian Stewart (sprained knee) is also expected to be ready.

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Ward should return after practicing on a limited basis all week. FS Darian Stewart (hamstring) is also listed as questionable. The Broncos secondary should be close to fully healthy for Monday night.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 03:28:00 PM

Broncos SS T.J. Ward (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

The Broncos have had a lot of trouble containing tight ends since Ward went down with his high ankle sprain in Week 12 against New England. With the Broncos' elite cornerback crew set to guard Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, and Markus Wheaton this week, Heath Miller is a sleeper for a lot of catches.
