Andrew Beck: Lifted from IR

Beck (hamstring) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Beck is expected to return to the lineup in Sunday's game against the Chiefs after missing six straight games. He should usurp Jeremy Cox as the Broncos' starting fullback, paving the way for Melvin Gordon, Phillip Lindsay (knee) and Royce Freeman.

Andrew Beck: Preparing to return from IR

Beck (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Beck hasn't played since Week 6, but he's eyeing a return as soon as this Sunday's game versus the Dolphins. The Broncos signed Jeremy Cox from their practice squad when Beck went down, and Cox likely will drop back down once Beck is activated.

Andrew Beck: Heads to IR

The Broncos placed Beck (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Beck was already ruled out for Week 8, and now he won't be eligible to return until a Week 11 matchup against the Dolphins. The team signed Jeremy Cox to the active roster to serve as the starting fullback until Beck returns.

Andrew Beck: Ruled out for Week 8

Beck (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Beck will miss his second straight game due to a lingering hamstring injury. In Beck's stead, tight end Nick Vannett could handle snaps at fullback when the Broncos' offensive formations call for it.

Andrew Beck: Limited participant Wednesday

Beck (hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Chiefs but was back on the practice field Wednesday. Beck could avoid an injury designation for Week 8 if he's able to practice with no limitations by the end of the week.

Andrew Beck: Unavailable Sunday

Beck (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was considered questionable with the hamstring issue after not practicing all week, so it's not a major surprise he won't be suiting up Sunday. Tight end Nick Vannett could fill in at fullback during Beck's absence.

October 25, 2020 12:07 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Pegged as questionable

Beck (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Despite not practicing all week, Beck's still being given a chance to play, although he's probably on the wrong side of questionable. The Broncos don't have a backup fullback on the roster, but tight end Nick Vannett could possibly sub in at fullback if necessary.

October 23, 2020 6:42 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Misses second straight practice

Beck (hamstring) is not practicing Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Beck's hamstring injury has held him out from back-to-back practices to begin the week. The starting fullback hasn't yet recorded an offensive touch this season, so if he isn't able to suit up against the Chiefs on Sunday the impact would be limited to Denver's run blocking scheme.

October 22, 2020 3:15 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Overcomes back injury

Beck (back) is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: Beck has managed to fully recover from the back injury he sustained earlier this month, putting him in position to suit up as Denver's starting fullback against the Titans on Monday.

September 10, 2020 3:53 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Practicing Tuesday

Beck (back) participated in the individual portions of Tuesday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Analysis: Beck is managing a back injury he suffered last week. As the only fullback on Denver's roster, he'll play a key blocking role against the Titans on Monday if cleared to suit up. Beck also offers occasional receiving utility, though not enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

September 8, 2020 12:07 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Sits out practice Friday

Beck (back) didn't participate in Friday's practice, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: The severity of Beck's injury is uncertain, but the fullback should be locked into a roster spot heading into the 2020 season. He's an effective blocker, and he can occasionally catch out of the backfield, as he logged nine catches for 90 yards and a score in 2019.

September 4, 2020 6:39 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Officially activated

Beck (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The report came out Sunday that Beck's return to training camp was imminent and this news confirmed that notion. Beck performed in a tight end and fullback role with the Broncos last season, hauling in nine passes for 90 yards and a score. Now healthy, the 24-year-old is expected to handle the same dual-threat role he had last season in 2020.

August 17, 2020 5:29 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Will likely be activated Monday

Beck (illness) is expected to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: While nothing is official, Beck is expected to rejoin the team for Monday's practice. The dual-role player (tight end and fullback) tested positive July 23 and has finally defeated the illness, and he'll now have the opportunity to reaffirm his role as the No. 1 fullback.

August 16, 2020 2:16 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Sent to COVID list

The Broncos placed Beck (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: Beck was the first and only Bronco to find his way to the COVID-19 list, indicating he either tested positive or has been in recent contact with someone who did. Once he's healthy and back with the team, he'll look to break through in a dual role as fullback and tight end.

August 1, 2020 6:17 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Set for dual role in 2020

The Broncos have traded fullback Andy Janovich to the Browns, leaving Beck as the most experienced fullback on the roster, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: Janovich was a fan favorite, but a luxury after the Broncos switched the Pat Shurmur's offensive scheme, which seldom uses a fullback. Janovich was hurt for much of 2019 and so Beck moved back and forth between tight end and fullback through the season. Expect for him to play tight end more consistently in 2020, likely as TE2 or TE3, but add value by being able to rotate into the backfield when necessary.

Andrew Beck: Finishes 2019 with nine catches

Beck had nine catches off of 12 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown during the 2019 campaign.

Analysis: The Broncos snagged Beck off waivers just before the start of the season to play fullback in place of the injured Andy Janovich. He remained on the game-day roster as a tight end and special-teams contributor when Janovich returned to health only to move back to fullback when Janovich suffered a season-ending elbow injury. He meshed well with fellow rookie Drew Lock, including on a big 29-yard gain against Houston in Week 14 and a touchdown in Week 17 against Oakland. The Texas Longhorn is probably the safest bet to be a part of the 2020 tight-end room outside of Noah Fant thanks to his versatility and ability to play special teams. It will be interesting to see if he can grow into a TE2 under new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and more exposure to the position.

Andrew Beck: Enjoys first multicatch game

Beck caught two of three targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 23-3 loss in Kansas City.

Analysis: Beck had one of Denver's more fun plays during Sunday's snow game, making a 10-yard sliding catch on a low Drew Lock pass for a first-quarter first down. The rookie tight end has made some nice plays in recent weeks as he's played both in the backfield as a fullback and out on the wing. He's not worth considering from a fantasy perspective, but he looks to be developing into a versatile, reliable down-roster player for the Broncos. Next up is Sunday's matchup against the Lions' 31st-ranked pass defense.

December 16, 2019 4:59 PM EST

Andrew Beck: Records first catch since Week 5

Beck played nine of the Broncos' 50 offensive snaps and grabbed his lone target for an 18-yard reception in Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Though fullback Andy Janovich (elbow) landed on injured reserve ahead of the Week 12 contest, Beck didn't see his role expand as a blocker. In fact, the nine snaps were Beck's fewest since Week 7, as the Broncos instead made more use of fellow tight ends Jeff Heuerman (16 snaps) and Troy Fumagalli (10 snaps) behind starter Noah Fant. Beck at least made an impact in the passing game, but don't expect his involvement on offense grow based on just one reception.

Andrew Beck: Should solve fullback issue

Beck, claimed by Broncos Sunday, worked at both tight end and fullback for New England this summer, Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Texas will be part of a completely different offense in Denver as compared to what he's learned with the Patriots, but his ability to block out of the backfield should give him far more exposure than a typical TE4. The Broncos regular fullback, Andy Janovich (pectoral), has been among the league's most utilized fullbacks in recent years and Rich Scangarello's offense features the fullback more than most. Beck could see some of that action early in the season, but his time on the squad may have an expiration date. The Broncos decided not to place Janovich on injured reserve with the understanding that he'd only miss the first few games of the season. Once Janovich returns, Denver will have to decide whether Beck's spot could be better used to add depth elsewhere.

September 2, 2019 8:57 AM EST

Andrew Beck: Claimed off waivers

The Broncos claimed Beck off waivers Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Analysis: Beck was sent packing by the reigning Super Bowl champion Patriots earlier this week, but found a new team Sunday. The undrafted rookie out of Texas will add depth to the position as Jake Butt (knee) and Austin Fort (knee) were both placed on IR.
