Andrew Beck News

Signs one-year extension

The Broncos signed Beck to a one-year deal Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Beck appeared in 12 contests during the 2021 campaign before suffering an elbow injury in Week 15 that resulted in his placement on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. He totaled 55 offensive snaps and 189 special teams snaps but didn't record any counting stats.

Lands on IR

Beck (elbow) has been placed on the Broncos' injured reserve, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.

Analysis: Beck injured his elbow in the Broncos' Week 15 game against the Bengals. His only chance to return this season will be if Denver makes the playoffs. It is unclear if the Broncos will look for another fullback to fill his role or not.

Nursing elbow injury

Beck is dealing with an elbow injury which could cause him to miss some time, Zac Stevens of reports.

Analysis: Beck apparently suffered the injury Sunday against the Bengals while playing two snaps on offense and19 snaps on special teams.

Dec 20, 2021 11:44 AM EST

Inactive against Giants

Beck (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Beck has been marked as inactive for the season opener but is not carrying any sort of injury, so he will simply be a healthy scratch in an offense that already features Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam as tight ends to go along with Eric Saubert. It remains to be seen if he'll make his debut in Week 2 at Jacksonville next Sunday.

Sep 12, 2021 12:11 PM EST

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.

Dec 5, 2020 2:51 PM EST

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.

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.

Oct 31, 2020 5:08 PM EST

Ruled out for Week 8

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

Oct 30, 2020 2:00 PM EST

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.

Oct 28, 2020 4:03 PM EST

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.

Oct 25, 2020 12:07 PM EST

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.

Oct 23, 2020 6:42 PM EST

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.

Oct 22, 2020 3:15 PM EST

Overcomes back injury

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

Sep 10, 2020 3:53 PM EST

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.

Sep 8, 2020 12:07 PM EST

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.

Sep 4, 2020 6:39 PM EST

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.

Aug 17, 2020 5:29 PM EST

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.

Aug 16, 2020 2:16 PM EST

Sent to COVID list

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

Aug 1, 2020 6:17 PM EST

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.

Mar 19, 2020 12:04 PM EST

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.
