Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) practiced fully Wednesday. Green caught seven of eight targets for 74 yards in the first two games. He’s likely to be the third option in the passing game and should be a productive fantasy TE2 for the remainder of the season.

Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 5. It looks like Green may be able to return this week. Given the state of the position, he’ll be a possible start in a very nice matchup with the Falcons.

Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) missed practice again Thursday. HC Gary Kubiak said that Green will likely be a game-time decision this week. If Green can’t play, there are no standout options behind him on the depth chart. TE streamers should look elsewhere.

Saturday night, it was for the offense, led by Trevor Siemian. And after a deep attempt up the right sideline for Cody Latimer was ruled an interception, it was absolutely necessary to extract some momentum from what will be the starters' final work of the preseason.
"I thought it was huge. I thought it was really huge," said running back C.J. Anderson, who galloped through some wide holes for 35 yards on three consecutive carries that pushed the Broncos to the 1-yard line, setting up Siemian's 1-yard play-action touchdown pass to Virgil Green en route to a 17-9 win.
What set up the series was Siemian's unruffled demeanor. He didn't mope. He didn't panic. He simply stepped into the huddle and oozed confidence. The offense responded from there, the story said. Keep in mind this is a story from the team's official web site, but HC Gary Kubiak was quoted as saying Siemian was calm and had control of the huddle. There hasn't been an official announcement yet, but some feel Siemian has a leg up in this battle for starting QB.
Sixth-year tight end Virgil Green, who caught 12 passes for 173 yards in 2015, is making a strong case that 2016 may be his breakout season for the Broncos. Saturday night’s opening drive was a prime example of Green’s potential in the Broncos’ passing game.
On consecutive plays on that first drive, Green caught short passes from Siemian and stretched the catches into double-digit gains. He pushed the Broncos forward 28 yards with those two catches as Denver went from its own 25-yard line to the Niners’ 47-yard line.
“It was a play-action the first play,” Green said. “Wide-open [and] Trevor [Siemian] threw me a nice ball. Caught it, tried to do what I could after the catch. Then, the screen, they rushed a guy, dropped a lot of guys. There was one guy sitting on the sideline. [I] ran past him.”
Jeff Heuerman missed Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury and is having “a hard time staying healthy,” Head Coach Gary Kubiak said. Green has been consistently available since recovering from a finger injury that kept him out of OTAs in the spring, the story all said. We've had other reports about the team re-introducing the TE into the offense, so things could be shaping up for a Green breakout. He's an interesting TE2 draft option who has the chance to climb out charts. But keep in mind his QB situation remains a big question mark and could cap his fantasy potential.
