Denver Broncos News

Albert Okwuegbunam, Progressing well in recovery

Okwuegbunam (knee) said Thursday that he anticipates being healthy for the tentative start of training camp with "no issues," Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Okwuegbunam flashed through four appearances as a rookie prior to suffering a season-ending ACL tear, securing 11 of 15 targets for 121 yards and a score while battling for work behind Noah Fant. The 22-year-old, now roughly 12 weeks removed from knee surgery, said he's on track to resume jogging before the end of February. The NFL's offseason schedule is currently still murky, but Okwuegbunam at least appears on track for the tentative start of training camp, barring any postponements of complications.

River Cracraft, Grabs extension

Cracraft signed an extension with the 49ers on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Cracraft started one game (nine appearances) for San Francisco in 2020, ultimately finishing the year with six receptions for 41 yards on nine targets. As context for his production, it's worth noting that the 26-year-old wasn't promoted from the practice squad until midseason. He also got involved as a punt returner during the 49ers' final two games.

Phillip Lindsay, Taking revised approach in 2021

Lindsay (hip) indicated the Broncos' signing of Melvin Gordon last offseason impacted his approach during 2020, Troy Renck of Denver7 News reports.

Analysis: The 2018 Pro Bowler said on his reaction to the Broncos signing Gordon to a two-year, $16 million contract last March, "I was in battle mode. Everything caught me off guard with (him) coming in. You can burn yourself out like that." Perhaps Lindsay was pressing too hard, but injuries also seemingly played a role in his reduced output. After breaking the 1,000-yard rushing threshold over his first two NFL seasons, Lindsay sat out five games during the 2020 campaign while dealing with a myriad of issues -- the final of which a hip/knee injury that kept the 26-year-old inactive Weeks 16 and 17. Defenses were also able to key in on Lindsay as a rusher, with Gordon serving as the clear No. 1 pass-catching RB. Lindsay says he's going to take a mental different approach in 2021, but it remains unclear whether he'll remain with the organization. He's a restricted free agent, while his teammate Gordon faces a potential suspension because of the DUI charge he was cited for in mid-October.

Courtland Sutton, On track in rehab process

Sutton's rehab from ACL surgery is on track, with the wideout hoping to be ready for the beginning of next season, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: Sutton injured his knee Sept. 20, had surgery about a month later, and has been been jogging as part of his rehab routine since Jan. 14. He mentioned the possibility of some limited participation in the offseason program, though he may not be cleared to practice until training camp. Entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, Sutton may need to adjust to a new quarterback, as the Broncos are rumored to be seeking an upgrade on Drew Lock.

Isaiah McKenzie, Headed for free agency

McKenze is scheduled for unrestricted free agency this offseason, Ashley Holder of WGRZ reports.

Analysis: McKenzie finished 2020 with career highs for catches (30), receiving yards (282) and touchdowns (five), despite working as Buffalo's fourth or fifth WR for most of the year. He's generally been an effective role player in his two and a half seasons with the team, catching 75 of 103 targets (72.8 percent) for 744 yards and six touchdowns, plus 28-124-2 on the ground. The Bills probably want to keep him around, but McKenzie might find a bigger role and/or more money if he explores the open market.
