Denver Post - [Full Article]

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian told Denver Sports 760 AM, a partnering radio station of the team, that he is “making some progress” toward a return.

“I think I’m getting better every day,” Siemian said. “(I’m) trying to do some different things this week and see how it holds up. I think I’m making some headway and we’ll see how it ends up.”

Siemian is no longer wearing the protective boot on his left foot, and coach Gary Kubiak on Monday said he is hopeful his quarterback will be able to play Sunday at Tennessee.

Broncos sign RB Justin Forsett; RB Kapri Bibbs to IR

Justin Forsett had his best NFL season in Baltimore in 2014, when Gary Kubiak was the Ravens’ offensive coordinator. Now Forsett and Kubiak are getting together again.

Forsett has been awarded to the Broncos on waivers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Forsett was waived by the Lions last week.

The 31-year-old Forsett doesn’t look like he has a lot left: He averaged 3.2 yards a carry in three games with the Ravens this year, then went to Detroit, where he averaged 2.9 yards a carry in two games.

An ESPN report said the Broncos made room for Forsett by putting Kapri Bibbs on IR because of an ankle injury.

In 2014, playing in Kubiak’s offense, Forsett carried 235 times for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns, all career highs.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian out of walking boot

Following Sunday's win over Jacksonville at EverBank Field, Head Coach Gary Kubiak received some good news about Trevor Siemian's health.

Though Kubiak was hopeful the previous week that Siemian would be healthy enough to practice before Sunday's game, he saw a promising sign in Siemian's mobility over the weekend.

"I think we were hoping he'd get out there this past week but [he] couldn't, so I think the fact he's out of the boot all weekend walking around in Jacksonville, moving around [was good]," Kubiak said. "It looks like he's moving around good down there today in the meeting."

Fantasy Impact:

Kubiak didn't go into any other details about Siemian, especially if he'll be available this week. Denver is at Tennessee for an early game in Week 14.

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs has high ankle sprain

Monday, December 5, 2016, 12:16pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Broncos offense didn’t do much in Sunday’s 20-10 victory over the Jaguars, producing just 206 yards while playing without starting quarterback Trevor Siemian.

It looked for a while like running back Kapri Bibbs might provide some spark as he put up 37 rushing yards on the team’s lone touchdown drive of the day, but Bibbs’ afternoon ended a short time later thanks to an ankle injury. After the game, Bibbs, who ran five times for 49 yards overall, was in a walking boot and said he suffered a high ankle sprain.

“It was going to be a real good day,” Bibbs said, via the Denver Post. “I can bring a lot to this team. I can help this team a lot and that’s all I want to do.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Broncos will surely be doing more tests on Bibbs’ ankle, but such injuries typically mean missed time for players. If that’s the case, the Broncos may need to look for help with Devontae Booker and Juwan Thompson as the only other running backs on the roster. The story said one option could be Justin Forsett. The veteran was dropped by the Lions on Friday and played for Broncos coach Gary Kubiak in both Houston and Baltimore.

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs leaves game with ankle injury

Sunday, December 4, 2016, 5:13pm

ABC News - [Full Article]

Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs left the game with an ankle injury in the second quarter. The Broncos called their backup running back questionable, but he did not come back into the game.

Related players: Juwan Thompson

Fantasy Impact:

Bibbs had compiled 49 yards on five carries for the Broncos on Sunday before leaving and looked like their best back. Starter Devontae Booker finished with a TD and 35 yards on 18 carries. Thompson is up next on the depth chart. He carried twice for five yards.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right shoulder) took full practice reps all week. Bortles is good to go, but it’s a terrible matchup against the Broncos.

Friday, December 2, 2016, 6:13pm

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. As uninspiring as Siemian's play was at times, he has a solid 7.4 YPA and has thrown 1.5 TD per game. Paxton Lynch is a downgrade for both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, though both receivers had solid outings -- 5-49-1 and 7-80, respectively -- when Lynch started against the Falcons.

Broncos RB Devontae Booker (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Booker was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go.

Friday, December 2, 2016, 6:13pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. With Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon (who’s dealing with an ankle injury) and Denard Robinson will likely split the backfield duties against the Broncos. Last week, with Yeldon coming off of a week with no practice, Robinson out-touched him 13-to-7. This is a murky situation that is best avoided, but Robinson does have some spot start appeal if Yeldon is limited.
