Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens injury report:
« เมื่อ: พฤศจิกายน 28, 2018, 01:22:13 PM »
Quarterback Case Keenum sits out practice The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens released their first injury reports of the week earlier today. The Broncos have been dealing with optimal health to begin the season http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/brandon-marshall-jersey , but the injury big gets everyone eventually. The notable name sitting out practice today for the Broncos was starting quarterback, Case Keenum.Thankfully for the Broncos and Keenum, the knee injury is minor and today was just precautionary to give him some extra rest. After practice, Head Coach Vance Joseph was asked about Keenum’s knee injury and he stated: “It’s a little sore and he’s going to practice tomorrow.”. He was then asked if he was in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Ravens and Joseph said “no”. So that’s that. The other notable injury the Broncos are dealing with this week is to starting right tackle, Jared Veldheer. He suffered a concussion during Sunday’s game against the Raiders and is now in the concussion protocol. He will need to be cleared medically to play Sunday so his status will be something to watch throughout the week. Joseph was asked about Veldheer’s status and he said Veldheer is “progressing” but they will need to see where he is at the end of the week.Hopefully, for the Broncos and Veldheer, he can be cleared by Friday and Saturday and is able to be out there for the Broncos on Sunday. If not, look for Billy Turner to get the start at right tackle for the Broncos. LInebacker Brandon Marshall and cornerback Adam Jones sat out today’s practice as well, but neither injury seems serious. Head Coach Vance Joseph said he was “very hopeful” that these guys will play Sunday.As for the Ravens, they also had a few key players sit out today’s practice as well. Alex Collins (illness), Willie Henry (abdomen), Hayden Hurst (foot), C.J. Mosley (knee) Womens Phillip Lindsay Jersey , and Michael Pierce (foot) did not practice today.Collins figures to be fine for the game since he is just dealing with an illness. As for Willie Henry and rookie Hayden Hurst, both are expected to miss Sunday’s game with the Broncos. The big names here are inside linebacker C.J. Mosley and defensive lineman, Michael Pierce. Mosley figures to miss the game with a bone bruise he suffered last Thursday Night against the Bengals. This is a major loss to the Ravens middle of their defense. Big Michael Pierce’s status remains unknown, but if he misses the game as well, it will be a major hit to the Ravens defense. Keep in mind that this Ravens defense is already without starting cornerback Jimmy Smith so these injuries weaken an already weakened defense for the Broncos. A defense that allowed 4 touchdown passes to Andy Dalton just last week. Here is your entire Wednesday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens.

With the offense already sputtering, losing the guy with the 3rd most receptions through three weeks of play is pretty far from optimal.Compounding the issue, theBroncos’ tight ends group now consists of Jeff Heuerman and Matt LaCosse. Heuerman, a former 3rd round pick from the 2015 draft, has been okay at best so far in his career. LaCosse also entered the NFL in 2015, though he went undrafted, and sports a whole 3 receptions in his NFL career. Heuerman adds only another 23 receptions for 315 yards & 2 TDs despite playing in 29 games so far as a Bronco and starting 11 of them. So it should be no surprise when I tell you: That’s just not good enough.The Denver Broncos currently have, by far http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/bradley-roby-jersey , the worst tight end group in the NFL.Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty ImagesNow the onus is on General Manager John Elway to step in & make a move to fill this suddenly gapinghole in the offense. It’s time for the NFL’s best free agency GM to work some magic and prestidigitate a new name into the top slot of the Broncos’ TE depth chart. Unfortunately, that’s probably going to be really hard to do.The ReplacementsCoby FleenerA former Colts & Saints tight end, Fleenor was released by New Orleans this past May after suffering from concussion symptoms for months on end. It’s hard to find current news on him, but as recently as June he was still hoping to make a return to the NFL. If that’s still the case, a prove-it deal would be in order. On such a deal, he’d arguably offer the Broncos the very best mixture of talent vs price they’re likely to find. And with over 3,000 career receiving yards and 22 touchdowns on 255 receptions, he’d immediately become the most proven tight end the Broncos have fielded since at least 2015 (Own Daniels/Vernon Davis), or arguably 2013 (Julius Thomas).Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesObviously, signing Fleener wouldn’t come without some significant risks. Those concussion symptoms are a scary issue, & it’s entirely fair to question whether facilitating his comeback to the NFL stage would be the best thing for his health- or for the Broncos.Jack DoyleThe NFL’s cupboard is pretty bare when it comes to spare tight ends. Despite the fact that quality starting tight ends can absolutely wreck a defense, it’s not easy to find those guys. Jack Doyle, uninspiring as he might be Authentic Bradley Chubb Jersey , is probably among the Broncos’ best bets for swinging a trade for a surplus tight end.Doyle is in his 6th year with the Indianapolis Colts, having accrued 1,563 yards on 183 receptions during that time, to go with 12 touchdowns. Photo by Bobby Ellis/Getty ImagesThat’s not very impressive. Trust me, I know. But go scroll through each team’s depth chart and tell me how many teams have two tight ends who’ve been significant contributors in the NFL. There are definitely some out there: Zach Ertz & Dallas Goedert for the Philadelphia Eagles are a good example, or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Cameron Brate & OJ Howard. The problem is that both of those pairs contain one highly valuable, high-drafted youngster & one quality veteran who just signed a 5 or 6 year deal worth over $40 million total. That severely limits the realistic prospects of trading for any of those guys.Sad as it is, Doyle is more or less what’s probably achievable. As to whether he’s worth it at the $4.4 million price tag he would carry in 2018? That’s... highly debatable. For that matter, it’s debatable whether he’d even be an upgrade over Heuerman anyway.Maxx WilliamsAnother somewhat-realistic trade candidate is the Baltimore Ravens’ 4th year tight end. Williams basically missed the 2016 season with an injury, but the former 2nd round pick hasn’t done much to impress in the other 2.2 years of his NFL career. With 54 receptions for 422 yards and just 2 touchdowns, Williams has so far been underwhelming at the very least. Again, it’s entirely fair to give him a pass due to not even being an upgrade to what we have now.So What to Do?Quite honestly, if Fleener isn’t an option http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/jared-veldheer-jersey , there’s not really a “splashy” move I can see that’s worth making. The teams that have quality starting tight ends would be foolish to give them up, and those few teams who’ve managed to find two such players have excellent incentive to sell them dearly, if at all. And the Broncos lack the cap space to pay a TE a lot, which is another significant hurdle.In my opinion, it’s time for Elway & the Broncos’ front office to scour the league’s practice squads and dive headfirst into analyzing all of those guys’ tape in hopes of finding a diamond in the rough a-la Todd Davis or Brandon Marshall. With no sure bets, the only decent option is to start gambling. Hopefully Elway can make with the magic. Otherwise, we’re stuck hoping that Jeff Heuerman finally, finally becomes the player he was drafted to be. Do you like an option I didn’t think of? Let me know in the comments!
