Cleveland signed with the Broncos' practiced squad Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland was let go by Denver on Tuesday after appearing in six games for the team this season, where he recorded two catches on seven targets for 28 yards. He'll now try to work his way back to the 53-man roster.

The Broncos waived Cleveland on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland was let go from Denver on Tuesday, after he appeared in six games for the team this season and corralled just two receptions for 28 yards in that span. The third-year receiver began his career with the Broncos back in 2020, but he'll now search for playing opportunities elsewhere.

Cleveland (groin) is absent from the Broncos' final injury report ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Titans, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.
Analysis: After being limited at practice for consecutive days to start the week, Cleveland practiced in full Friday. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role on special teams and providing depth at receiver.
Nov 11, 2022 5:18 PM EST
Cleveland (groin) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, per Troy Renck of Denver 7 News.
Analysis: Cleveland missed Denver's Week 8 win over Jacksonville due to a groin issue that caused him to miss all three practices leading up to the contest, but his return to practice following the team's Week 9 bye suggests that he's showing improvement. With that in mind, Cleveland could be available to face the Titans this Sunday, but it's unlikely that he'd play a major role on offense since he was limited to special-teams work in each of the past two games in which he played.
Nov 9, 2022 3:07 PM EST
Cleveland (groin) has been ruled out for the Broncos' Week 8 contest against the Jaguars.
Analysis: Cleveland picked up a groin injury this week, which forced him to miss all three of the Broncos' practices and ultimately be absent for their matchup with Jacksonville on Sunday. Jalen Virgil could see an increase in snaps with Cleveland unavailable.
Oct 28, 2022 8:38 AM EST
Cleveland (groin) was unavailable for Wednesday's practice, Aric DiLalla of the Bronco's official website reports.
Analysis: Cleveland picked up a groin injury at some point this last week and was unable to go for practice Wednesday. He can be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars and if he is unavailable for the contest, Jalen Virgil could garner a few more snaps.
Oct 26, 2022 9:26 AM EST
Cleveland (hamstring) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Colts.
Analysis: Per Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com, Cleveland's return to action should be a boost for the Broncos special teams in Week 5. Additionally, he'll provide the team with added wideout depth behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler.

Cleveland (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night versus Indianapolis, Aric DiLalla of DenverBroncos.com reports.
Analysis: Cleveland did practice this week, though it is a short week for Denver, so whether he'll be available Week 5 feels like a coin flip proposition. If he can play, he'll probably operate as Denver's fourth option at receiver behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler.
Oct 5, 2022 1:23 PM EST
Cleveland (hamstring) was limited during a walkthrough practice Tuesday.
Analysis: Denver is operating on a short week ahead of a Thursday night matchup versus Indianapolis, so Cleveland's status for Week 5 still seems very much undecided despite his participation in practice early in the week. Even if he can play, the third-year receiver would just be filling a depth role in a moribund Broncos offense.
Oct 4, 2022 12:56 PM EST
Cleveland (hamstring) did not practice Friday and is listed as out for Week 4 at the Raiders.
Analysis: Cleveland will sit out for a second consecutive week with a hamstring injury he sustained after Week 2 versus Houston. He'll probably need to practice in some capacity next week to have a chance of playing Week 5 versus Indianapolis, but in the meantime, rookie fifth-rounder Montrell Washington should continue to operate as Denver's number four wideout.
Sep 30, 2022 2:10 PM EST
Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett said Cleveland (hamstring) won't practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland was held out of the team's Week 3 win over the 49ers after presumably suffering a hamstring injury during a practice. He'll have two more days to upgrade to at least a limited participant before the Broncos have to make a decision on his status for Week 4. Regardless, even if Cleveland is healthy, he'll face a tough time garnering any targets behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler.
Sep 28, 2022 12:23 PM EST
Cleveland (hamstring) has been ruled out Sunday against the 49ers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland was limited by a hamstring injury during Thursday's practice session and didn't take the field Friday. He'll be held out for Sunday's primetime matchup, which could lead to increased playing time for Montrell Washington and Kendall Hinton.
Sep 25, 2022 4:08 PM EST
Cleveland (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Analysis: Cleveland popped up on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant and didn't practice Friday, so he's certainly trending in the wrong direction ahead of Week 3. It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but he caught two of three targets for 28 yards while playing 27 offensive snaps during Week 2 with KJ Hamler (knee) sidelined. Jerry Jeudy (ribs) and Hamler are also questionable for Sunday's primetime showdown with San Francisco, so Denver's wideout corps may be extremely thin against the 49ers.

Cleveland (hamstring) was a limited participant during the Broncos' practice Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland appeared on Denver's injury report after fully participating during practice Wednesday, though it's unclear how he sustained this unspecified hamstring injury. The 25-year-old caught two of his three targets for 28 yards while playing 27 offensive snaps with wideout KJ Hamler (knee) out in Week 2. Cleveland did not record a reception while playing 83 of his 112 total snaps on special teams last season, though he could see increased usage again if Hamler and Jerry Jeudy (ribs/shoulder) are ultimately unable to suit up for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Sep 22, 2022 4:34 PM EST
Cleveland registered two receptions for 28 yards on three targets Sunday in the Broncos' 16-9 win over the Texans.
Analysis: Top wideout Courtland Sutton was targeted on 11 of Russell Wilson's 31 throws Week 2, but the rest of the quarterback's passes were otherwise spread out, as eight other pass catchers saw between one and four targets on the day. In fact, Cleveland notably saw more looks than top tight end Albert Okwuegbunam (two) while also tying Jerry Jeudy for second place among Denver's wideouts. Considering Cleveland played just eight snaps on offense in the season-opening loss to the Seahawks and was only on the field for 42 percent of the offensive plays Week 2, he likely won't warrant much attention in fantasy circles moving forward. The Broncos could be without Jeudy for their Week 3 matchup with the 49ers after he suffered a rib injury Sunday, but No. 3 receiver KJ Hamler (knee/hip) is expected to be available after a one-game absence to close off any path Cleveland might have had to seeing a major jump in involvement as a pass catcher.

Cleveland (neck) returned to practice Wednesday, Ellie Kinney of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland suffered a throat injury during an Aug. 1 practice and has been sidelined since. However, the third-year wideout returned to practice Wednesday and appears in line to be ready for Week 1. The 2020 seventh-round pick has mostly operated on special teams during his first two NFL campaigns, but he could be in store for a bigger offensive workload in 2022 with Tim Patrick (knee) on season-ending IR.
Aug 31, 2022 3:24 PM EST
Cleveland suffered cartilage damage in his neck and likely will sit out for the remainder of the preseason as a result, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Analysis: Cleveland will not require surgery after he was struck in the throat by a helmet during practice, and the Broncos hope he will be ready to return for the season opener on Sept. 12 Klis. The 2020 seventh-round pick figures to see a larger role this coming regular season after fellow wideout Tim Patrick suffered a season-ending torn ACL in training camp. With Cleveland sidelined for the remainder of the offseason, wideouts Seth Williams and Travis Fulgham should see increased reps during Denver's upcoming slate of preseason games.
Aug 4, 2022 11:23 AM EST
Cleveland was present at practice and stretching Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Analysis: Cleveland suffered an ankle injury at Broncos minicamp in June, but it appears he's put that injury behind him at this point. He'll have to compete to make the roster in a crowded Denver wide receivers room, and it doesn't help his case that the team added Montrell Washington in the fifth round of this year's draft and Travis Fulgham this offseason.
Jul 27, 2022 9:21 AM EST
Cleveland appears to have just suffered a sprained ankle during Monday's minicamp practices after MRI scans confirmed there was no damage to his Achilles or knee, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Analysis: Cleveland had to be carted off after going down on the final play of Denver's practice Monday, leaving many worried that the wideout may have a severe injury. Early tests seem to indicate that the injury was much less serious, however, as the 2021 seventh-round pick took to his personal Twitter account to update fans with the positive news of his clear MRI results.
Jun 13, 2022 6:29 PM EST
Cleveland (knee) was injured on the final play of practice Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: While it's unclear what his injury is, it's not a great sign that he had to be carted off the field. The Broncos have a ton of competition at wideout this offseason, so Cleveland will try to work his way back onto the field as quickly as he can.
