Virgil Green (calf) is out for Week 3 against the Bengals.

Sep 23 - 2:13 PM

Virgil Green (calf) missed another practice on Friday and is not expected to play against the Bengals.

He didn't practice at all this week. Calf injuries tend to linger, so Green is potentially staring at a multi-week absence and can be dropped in 12-team leagues. Look for Jeff Heuerman and blocker John Phillips to share snaps at Cincinnati. Neither Heuerman nor Phillips is streamer worthy.
Sep 23 - 1:13 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Virgil Green (calf) will likely be a game-time decision against the Bengals in Week 3.

He hasn't practiced yet this week and probably won't play unless he gets a limited session in on Friday. Green has earned PFF's highest grade among 95 qualifiers at tight end this season. John Phillips is his backup.

Sep 21 - 2:14 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Virgil Green is day to day with a strained right calf.

Green left the stadium in a walking boot on Sunday but his injury doesn't appear to be serious. Jeff Heuerman, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, would replace Green in the starting lineup if he can't go against the Bengals in Week 3.
Sep 19 - 3:37 PM

Broncos TE Virgil Green will have an MRI on his injured right calf.

Green exited the stadium in a walking boot after Sunday's game. If Green is forced to miss some time, the Broncos will likely turn to Jeff Heuerman. He will not be worth streaming consideration even if he starts.
Sep 19 - 11:02 AM

Virgil Green exited the stadium following Sunday's win with a walking boot on his left leg.

He was also seen limping. The extent of Green's injury isn't known, but he may be headed for a Monday MRI. Green caught 3-of-3 targets for 46 yards in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Colts. 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman and blocker John Phillips are Denver's Nos. 2 and 3 tight ends.
Sep 18 - 8:35 PM

Virgil Green caught 4-of-5 targets for 28 yards Thursday night against the Panthers.

Green was not targeted heavily, but he could have paid off his fantasy owners with a touchdown when he got wide open in the back of the end zone on a play-action pass in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, Panthers DE Kony Ealy leaped in the air and pawed the pass to the turf. Green should be a factor in the red zone all season -- the almost touchdown looked very similar to the actual touchdown he scored in the preseason -- but his yardage total will be limited in a run-first offense. He is a TE2 moving forward.
Sep 9 - 12:43 AM

Virgil Green is officially listed as the Broncos' starting tight end on their Week 1 depth chart.

Jeff Heuerman drew some early-offseason buzz as a potential breakout candidate after missing his 2015 rookie season, but coach Gary Kubiak admitted Heuerman can't stay healthy. Green has never been a model of health, either, but he took hold of the job in training camp and showed some rapport with the popgun-armed quarterbacks on Denver's roster. He gets the Panthers Week 1.
