Austin Traylor: Cut by Denver

Traylor was released by the Broncos on Saturday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports.

Analysis: Traylor found himself stuck behind the likes of Jeff Heuerman and Jake Butt on the depth chart as cut down day loomed. With Denver's decision to draft Troy Fumagalli, the writing on the wall became ever-apparent for Traylor. It remains to be seen whether he'll latch on elsewhere.

Austin Traylor: Nursing shoulder injury

Traylor sustained a shoulder injury during Saturday's preseason opener against the Vikings, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Analysis: It isn't clear when or how Traylor suffered the injury, nor is it certain how severe his situation is. Regardless, his potential absence from practice this week is yet another ding to a tigth end corps already without Jeff Heuerman (knee) and Troy Fumagalli (sports hernia) for the time being, which allows Jake Butt to operate as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end until further notice.
