Virgil Green (calf) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's not going to suit up this week. John Phillips will draw another start at tight end Sunday against Tampa Bay. Green is week to week with a strained calf.

Virgil Green (calf) remained sidelined Thursday.

The Broncos will roll with Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips against the Bucs.

DeMarcus Ware (elbow) said his goal is to be "healthy down the stretch."

Ware is about two weeks removed from elbow surgery. He was supposed to miss 4-5 weeks but Ware said he plans to be "patient" with his injury, which suggests he could miss more time. Ware is obviously an important contributor but the Broncos have looked fine without him. They'll give the veteran as much time as he needs.

The Denver defense has recorded at least three sacks in each game this season.

The Broncos wrapped up Cincinnati's Andy Dalton four times in Week 3 despite the Bengals attempting to limit the impact of the Denver pass rush. "They were committed to the run, chipping us and doing those type of things. But then at the end of the day, we had four sacks out of our two outside guys between Shane (Ray) and Von (Miller)," said coach Gary Kubiak. The Broncos D/ST will be a top-tier fantasy option at Tampa Bay in Week 4.

Virgil Green (calf) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

If he can't go, Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips will again fill in.
Sep 28 - 2:10 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 6-of-7 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

Thomas lost a fumble and was having a slow fantasy day while seemingly taking a clear backseat to Emmanuel Sanders (13 targets) until Trevor Siemian found him streaking deep down the middle for a 55-yard fourth-quarter touchdown bomb. Thomas has now put together back-to-back games of 90-plus yards. He gets an even more favorable matchup with the Broncos face Tampa Bay's weak pass defense in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 4:23 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught 9-of-13 targets for 117 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

This wasn't a great-looking spot for Sanders coming in on paper, but he was simply un-cover-able in this game, and got fed as the squeaky wheel after expressing "frustration" with his role in the first two weeks. Sanders' 13 targets bested Demaryius Thomas' 7, and the Broncos' theoretical No. 2 wideout was no match for Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick. Sanders gets a more favorable Week 4 matchup at Tampa Bay, where he'll be an upside WR2/3 play.
Sep 25 - 4:20 PM

Devontae Booker rushed four times for eight yards and caught his lone target for 17 yards in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

He logged only the five touches after getting ten in Week 2. Booker isn't putting any heat on C.J. Anderson, but the rookie remains a hold in 12-team leagues as a potential league winner if something happened to Anderson.
Sep 25 - 4:18 PM

C.J. Anderson managed 37 yards on 14 carries and caught 1-of-4 targets for four yards in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

It was a disappointing effort in a game where Denver scored 29 points, but Anderson simply couldn't get any room to run and only lost five touches to Devontae Booker. Anderson remains entrenched as the lead back in a run-heavy Broncos offense, keeping him in the every-week RB1 fantasy realm. He draws another tough matchup when Denver visits Tampa Bay in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 4:16 PM

Trevor Siemian completed 23-of-35 passes for 312 yards and four touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

He rushed three times for five yards. Siemian was unstoppable in this game, finding Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas for long touchdown bombs and ultimately picking apart a normally stout Bengals defense at all levels of the field. Both Thomas and Sanders hit 100 receiving yards. The 3-0 Broncos will head to Tampa Bay for Week 4. Undefeated as a starter, Siemian has earned mid-range to low-end two-quarterback-league consideration in a plus matchup like the Bucs. At this point, we don't expect to see first-round pick Paxton Lynch anytime soon.
Sep 25 - 4:09 PM

Broncos declared TE Virgil Green, QB Austin Davis, OLB DeMarcus Ware, S Justin Simmons, CB Lorenzo Doss, and OLs Connor McGovern and Donald Stephenson inactive for Week 3 against the Bengals.

Green is week to week with a strained calf.
Sep 25 - 11:42 AM

Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) is only expected to miss one week.

Green is going to sit out the trip to Cincinnati, but he should return next week against the Bucs. The Broncos will go with a committee in his place.
Sep 24 - 1:09 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Trevor Siemian is still adjusting to the "speed of the game."

"He's made some poor decisions, athletic decisions," Kubiak said. "I know that sounds kind of crazy, but it's just learning that, 'Trevor, That guy can make that play. You're not in college anymore. You're not going to throw that ball through that guy.'" Siemian has three interceptions through two games, but Kubiak believes he is going to become more comfortable with the speed of the NFL each game. The young quarterback faces a tough test in Cincinnati this week.

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

This was the expected outcome after Green sat out practice all week. Coach Gary Kubiak expects John Phillips to start in his place. Consider Green week to week.
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.
