According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, Paxton Lynch "made his move" on Trevor Siemian during the final two weeks of OTAs.

Klis noticed a turning point in Lynch over the final two weeks as his "switch was flipped." Specifically, Klis found Lynch to be less tentative, no longer worrying about protections, hot reads and coverages. "He started to get it," said Klis. "He started to play as if he was doing just that—playing." Lynch didn't show much as a rookie but appears to be making great strides as a sophomore. If Lynch continues to progress during training camp, there's a real chance of him wrangling the starting job away from Siemian.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left Bennie Fowler off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

He also left off Marlon Brown. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie are all locks, leaving four players—Fowler, Brown, Cody Latimer and Jordan Taylor—to battle for the last two spots at wide receiver. Wolfe believes Latimer will make the team because of his special teams prowess while Taylor's size gives him the edge over Fowler and Brown.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left seventh-round QB Chad Kelly (wrist) off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

Wolfe expects Kelly to spend the year on injured reserve. It makes sense for Kelly to use 2017 as a red-shirt year while working his way back from wrist and knee surgeries. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will battle for the starting job.

The Denver Post projects sixth-round RB De'Angelo Henderson to make the Broncos' 53-man roster.

It's way too early for projections like this to mean anything, but beat writer Cameron Wolfe says Henderson has already "proven himself too valuable to try to sneak onto the practice squad." The Broncos' backfield depth chart is unsettled short and long term. Extremely productive at Coastal Carolina with 4.48 speed at 208 pounds, Henderson is a name worth monitoring.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports Broncos DE Adam Gotsis is undergoing a knee scope.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports the operation is to remove something "floating" around in his knee. That does not sound pleasant, but thankfully it is in the opposite knee of his college ACL injury. Coach Vance Joseph expects Gotsis back for the start of camp. Gotsis is expected to take a sophomore leap after a strong offseason, but this operation at least is a concern.

Broncos re-signed K Brandon McManus to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

McManus is the last restricted free agent to sign his tender. He was hoping for a multi-year deal after converting at least 85 percent of his field goals the last two seasons. The Broncos could still extend McManus before training camp.

Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla predicts Paxton Lynch will be the Broncos' starting quarterback in Week 1.

A longtime, largely non-hot-takey Denver columnist, Kiszla calls it "obvious" Lynch is the clubhouse leader over Trevor Siemian with "hints everywhere." Kiszla believes the only way Lynch doesn't start is if he "messes it up," calling Siemian "the fail-safe device." Siemian has reportedly outplayed Lynch at OTAs and minicamp, but coach Vance Joseph insisted Tuesday that spring practice performance will have no bearing on his quarterback decision, which will be decided based on preseason games. Kiszla's Denver Post colleague Mike Klis has favored Siemian as the Week 1 starter.

Broncos NT Kyle Peko suffered a broken right foot in Tuesday's minicamp session.

He's undergoing surgery Wednesday. Per NBC Denver, Peko is expected to return "early" in camp. He's competing for a backup nose tackle job. A 2016 UDFA, Peko played 14 snaps as a rookie.

New Broncos OG Ronald Leary is playing on the right side in minicamp.

Leary was expected to man the left side when he signed his four-year, $36 million deal in March, but last year's LG Max Garcia was evidently having trouble making the switch to the right. Leary has professed indifference to which side he plays. Leary had a strong year on the left for the Cowboys in 2016.

Jamaal Charles (knee) is being held out of team drills in minicamp.

Charles is getting in some side work with his helmet on, but the Broncos aren't forcing the issue six weeks before training camp. It's unclear if Charles will be 100 percent for the start of camp.
Jun 13 - 1:18 PM

According to 9 News Denver's Mike Klis, Broncos second-year QB Paxton Lynch remains a "work in progress" coming out of OTAs.

Klis indicates Lynch's spring practice performances were highly inconsistent, unsurprising for a quarterback whose 2016 preseason and real-game play also failed to align. Trevor Siemian remains the favorite entering camp.
Jun 11 - 5:25 PM

Broncos seventh-round QB Chad Kelly had the cast removed from his right wrist.

Kelly is also recovering from an ACL tear in his right knee, but he says the injury is "coming along well." Coach Vance Joseph has said Kelly is expected to be "totally cleared by August." Even so, the quarterback will have something of a redshirt year behind Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.
Jun 6 - 10:44 AM

Jamaal Charles (knee) said he thinks he can "be the man" in the Broncos' backfield.

It would be surprising if Charles' goal was anything less than being "the man" considering his resume, but he also seems to have reasonable expectations about his role coming off multiple knee surgeries at age 30. "I just want to come in and compete," Charles said. "I want to show up and compete with my teammates and show them that I am good and still at the top of my career." Charles still has not been fully cleared, but he has progressed to "light drills" at OTAs. If he can get healthy, Charles should operate as the change-of-pace option for C.J. Anderson.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Paxton Lynch "had a great day" after Monday's practice.

Denver 7's Troy Renck said the session was "arguably (Lynch's) best media-viewed workout as a pro." That said, 9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports Trevor Siemian has had "more good days overall" than Lynch during OTAs. With both players seemingly getting equal reps, this looks like it will be a back-and-forth affair deep into camp.

Jamaal Charles (knees) progressed to "light drills" with the running backs at Broncos OTA practice on Monday.

"He came here and his quad was really weak," coach Vance Joseph admitted. "He’s gotten stronger, he’s running hills, he was with (RBs coach) Eric Studesville on a couple drills. So he’s getting closer, but his time frame won’t change. He’ll still be ready for training camp." Charles, 30, has torn each of his ACLs and underwent two knee surgeries last November, one to trim his right meniscus and the other to clean out his left knee.
