Denver Broncos News

Courtland Sutton, Expects to be ready for camp

Sutton (knee) said Monday that "the game plan" is to be ready for training camp, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: Sutton, who missed all but one contest last season after tearing his left ACL and MCL, said he feels "really good" at this stage of his recovery, per Stevens. Entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, Sutton appears set to serve as one of Denver's clear top targets alongside 2020 first-round pick Jerry Jeudy. The likes of Noah Fant, KJ Hamler, Tim Patrick and Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) will also all demand targets, as will tailbacks Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams, but Sutton is talented enough that his position atop the pecking order won't be challenged, as long as he's healthy. It may be fair to question whether Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater are capable of providing enough volume to feed such a crowded receiving corps, however.

Albert Okwuegbunam, Gets some work in

Okwuegbunam (knee) got limited on-field work in during Monday's practice, George Stoia of The Denver Gazette reports.

Analysis: Okwuegbunam is roughly five months removed from undergoing surgery to repair his torn right ACL. While he certainly isn't back to full health yet, it's encouraging to see the tremendously athletic tight end progressing well in his recovery. Coach Vic Fangio previously said that Okwuegbunam might not be fully healthy for the start of training camp, but it appears that he could still be on track for Week 1.

Daesean Hamilton, Tears ACL at disastrous time

Hamilton (knee) suffered a torn ACL away from team facilities Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: It was announced Thursday that Hamilton would be waived by the Broncos, but Rapoport reports that a trade was in the works prior to the 2018 fourth-round pick tearing his ACL. Aside from being a serious injury, that the timing of Hamilton's torn ACL will likely interrupt any potential deals is a brutal blow. Denver will await further injury confirmation before making a decision on how to proceed.

Daesean Hamilton, Done in Denver

The Broncos will waive Hamilton on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hamilton has operated as a capable reserve option since joining the Broncos in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but over the past two season he found himself the odd man out in what's become one of the league's most crowded receiving corps. The fact that Hamilton also doesn't contribute much on special teams meant there was little incentive for Denver to keep him on the roster, as moving on frees up $2.18 million in cap space. It would be surprising if Hamilton passes through waivers unclaimed.

Albert Okwuegbunam, Timetable uncertain

Coach Vic Fangio said Saturday that Okwuegbunam (knee) is progressing well, but may not be ready for the start of training camp, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Okwuegbunam had a solid four games as a rookie before suffering an ACL tear, recording 11 catches for 121 yards and a score as the team's No. 2 tight end. The Missouri product continues to rehab his knee from surgery, and it's good news to hear his coach echo positive sentiments in his recovery.
