Paxton Lynch completed 9-of-13 passes for 39 yards and rushed three times for 27 yards in the Broncos' second preseason game.

Lynch has simply shown no ability to move the Broncos' offense, and you could argue he looks worse than his rookie-year preseason. He was a checkdown machine Saturday night against the 49ers, generating his best play on a 10-yard scramble. Trevor Siemian gives the Broncos a better chance to win, but the team is still trying to force the issue with Lynch. who hasn't shown any tangible signs of improvement. He's looking like a first-round draft bust.

The Denver Channel's Troy Renck reports Paxton Lynch "turned the corner" in practice this week.

Lynch reportedly "looked comfortable" and made good decisions in joint practices against the 49ers. The offense looks to be slowing down for Lynch after an uneven start to training camp. There's a chance Lynch could move ahead of Trevor Siemian with a strong showing in Denver's second preseason game.

Paxton Lynch is "getting more first-team reps" this week.

This was expected with Lynch slated to start Denver's second preseason game. Reports from Broncos-49ers joint practices are that Lynch has looked terrible in full-squad sessions. We expect Trevor Siemian to be Denver's Week 1 starter.

Broncos second round pick DeMarcus Walker (hip) needs a second MRI.

There's hope Walker can play through the injury, but it sounds like there's some concern. More won't be known until the MRI results. Walker has been mixing in snaps at outside linebacker with Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett sidelined.

Jamaal Charles will sit out the Broncos' second preseason game on Saturday.

Charles was supposed to play in the Broncos' exhibition opener, but ended up sitting out. He will supposedly play in the third preseason game. Charles has said he's healthy, but the Broncos are showing extreme caution with the 30 year old's knees. Charles remains a true dart throw in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he was "not surprised" to see sixth-round RB De'Angelo Henderson shine in the preseason opener.

Henderson rushed seven times for 54 yards and a touchdown, including the game-winning 41-yard score. "What we saw tonight is what he’s been since we drafted the guy in the spring," said Joseph. "So I’m not surprised to see that tonight." Henderson remains an intriguing sleeper to earn touches in a muddy backfield that also includes C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles, and injured Devontae Booker.

Broncos third-round WR Carlos Henderson is day to day following surgery to repair a torn left thumb ligament.

We would consider Henderson more week to week, though it's possible he could return this preseason. No. 3 duties are there for the taking for Henderson if he can get healthy.
Aug 14 - 1:53 PM

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he is "not sure yet" if Jamaal Charles will play in the second preseason game.

Coming off a series of knee injuries, Charles was held out of the preseason opener and has remained limited in practice, although he has reportedly taken more full-team reps in the past week. It is smart for the Broncos to take it slow with the veteran, but they will need to see if he has anything left in the tank at some point.

Broncos WR Carlos Henderson requires thumb surgery.

The team won't have a timetable for Henderson's return until after his Sunday operation. The No. 82 overall pick of the draft, Henderson caught one pass for seven yards in his preseason debut on Thursday. Having a quiet camp, Henderson is theoretically in the lead for No. 3 duties behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos DE Derek Wolfe's ankle injury is "just a moderate sprain."

This confirms previous reports. Wolfe is unlikely to play in Denver's second preseason game, but should be fine for Week 1.
Aug 12 - 4:34 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports Allen Barbre is "getting plenty of first-team reps at left guard" and has "challenged" Max Garcia.

The Broncos acquired Barbre from the Eagles in July for a conditional seventh-round pick. When playing with the Eagles, Barbre struggled somewhat at right tackle but was solid at guard. The Broncos need to protect their young quarterbacks.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports Derek Wolfe has an ankle injury, but it is "not as serious as it first appeared."

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports it is "just an ankle sprain." Broncos fans can let out a sigh of relief after Wolfe was carted off the field Saturday morning with what was thought to be a "serious injury". That said, Wolfe is not completely out of the woods yet. We will know more in the coming days about the severity of his injury.

Broncos DE Derek Wolfe was carted off the field with a right leg injury during Saturday's practice.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the injury "appears to be serious." If Wolfe is forced to miss an extended period, it would be another blow to a defense which lost DL Billy Winn for the season on Friday. Wolfe recorded 5.5 sacks in 14 games last year and is a big part of the Broncos' pass-rush.
Aug 12 - 12:16 PM

Broncos DL Billy Winn suffered a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Bears.

Known mainly for his run-stopping prowess, Winn earned PFF's No. 40 grade out of 51 qualifiers at 3-4 defensive end last season.
Aug 11 - 2:53 PM

Broncos sixth-round RB De'Angelo Henderson rushed seven times for 54 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener.

Henderson showed off his 4.48 speed running for a 41-yard touchdown to win the game late in the fourth quarter. He came in as the third running back after C.J. Anderson and Stevan Ridley. Henderson is a deep sleeper in a muddy backfield.
