Won't play Sunday

Cleveland (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Cleveland suffered a late-week injury, which always threatens to keep one out of a game. The Broncos will accordingly be without some of their special-teams depth.

Deemed questionabe

Cleveland (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

Analysis: Cleveland seemingly picked up the injury during practice Thursday after beginning the week as a full participant. However, he did not practice at all Friday, leaving his status for Sunday uncertain. Cleveland has served nearly exclusively on special teams this season, as he has only one target and no receptions across six contests on the campaign.

Plays four offensive snaps in loss

Cleveland failed to secure his lone target in Thursday's 17-14 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Cleveland played on just four of the Broncos' 50 offensive snaps Thursday. The 24-year-old wideout was elevated from the team's practice squad ahead of the contest to serve as depth for Denver's offense. Despite his extremely limited role in the passing game, Cleveland was mostly a contributor on special teams, playing on 70 percent of special teams snaps in the game. With fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy making his return from an ankle injury in the near future, Cleveland will likely have a difficult time seeing the field going forward. The Broncos will square off against Washington in Week 8.

Bumping up to active roster

The Broncos have promoted Cleveland to the active roster for Thursday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Cleveland is being elevated for a third straight contest, so after Thursday's game the Broncos will need to decide whether to sign him to the active roster. The second-year pro has yet to draw a target this season, but he has handled a depth role on offense and contributed on special teams.

Returns to practice squad

Cleveland reverted to the Broncos' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Cleveland was a gameday elevation for Sunday's loss to the Ravens, and he played 10 snaps on offense and 13 on special teams, recording one tackle. The 2020 seventh-round pick caught six passes for 63 yards as a rookie last year, but he is without a catch through two appearances in 2021.

Elevated to active roster

Cleveland was elevated from the Broncos' practice squad Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Cleveland will join the active roster for the second straight week as a much needed depth piece at wide receiver for Denver's offense. Joining him will be new acquisition John Brown, though it remains unclear if the veteran wideout will be activated for game day. Nonetheless, both Cleveland and Brown have the potential to see usage in the passing game in relief of Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick when the Broncos square off against the Raiders in Week 6.

Reverts back to practice squad

Cleveland reverted back to the Broncos' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: Cleveland joined the active roster for the first time this season, as Courtland Sutton (ankle) and Diontae Spencer (chest) were questionable heading into Sunday's contest. The 24-year-old played five offense snaps, but his only contribution to the stat column was a tackle he made on Denver's kickoff unit.

Elevated to active roster

Cleveland was elevated from the Broncos' practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: Cleveland joined Denver's practice squad after he was waived in late August, and he'll join the active roster for the first time this season. He'll provide relief for the team's receiving corps with Courtland Sutton (ankle) and Diontae Spencer (chest) questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Bumped to waivers

Cleveland was waived by the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: A seventh-round pick in 2020, Cleveland suited up for 10 games in his rookie season and mostly contributed on special teams, returning 10 kicks for 234 yards. The Broncos are healthy at wide receiver to start the season, so Cleveland was cut loose before the 53-man roster was revealed Tuesday.

Aug 30, 2021 8:39 PM EST

Has first multi-catch game

Cleveland caught four of five targets for 45 yards during Sunday's 32-31 loss to Las Vegas.

Analysis: The rookie seventh-round pick entered Sunday with just two catches on the season and stepped up in a big way. All five of Cleveland's targets were on third down and he converted three of them. The Florida product converted a fourth third down by drawing a holding penalty. Cleveland definitely benefitted from the absence of fellow rookie KJ Hamler (concussion) and Tim Patrick (foot), but he showed promise heading into an offseason in which the bulk of Denver's young core of skill players will return.

Jan 4, 2021 3:45 PM EST

Cleared going forward

Cleveland (illness) was absent from Tuesday's injury reports, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Cleveland missed the Week 14 win over Carolina after falling ill, but he's good to go moving forward. The 23-year-old wide receiver is ticketed as the team's top kick returner moving forward while handling occasional snaps on offense.

Dec 15, 2020 2:07 PM EST

Listed as out

Cleveland (illness) will not travel to Sunday's game and was downgraded to out Saturday, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It's worth noting the illness is reportedly not COVID-19, but he'll nevertheless not travel to Sunday's game. The receiver has caught two of his four targets for 18 yards this season and will likely have Diontae Spencer take over his duties as the primary kick returner.

Dec 12, 2020 12:38 PM EST

Considered questionable

Cleveland (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Analysis: Cleveland's illness hasn't been linked to COVID-19, but he'll surely be required to pass a few more tests to play Sunday. If he's unable to go, his absence will mainly affect special teams. Diontae Spencer likely would replace him as the primary kick returner.

Dec 11, 2020 5:14 PM EST

One catch Week 13

Cleveland caught his lone target for 11 yards and returned three kickoffs for 77 yards during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: The 23-year-old played only two offensive snaps but secured his first reception since the season opener. Cleveland should continue to see most of his opportunities in the return game for Denver.

Dec 8, 2020 6:07 PM EST

Cleared of concussion

Cleveland (concussion) wasn't on Wednesday's injury report and will play Sunday against the Raiders, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Analysis: Cleveland was evaluated for a concussion during last week's loss to the Falcons, but he cleared the testing and is healthy moving forward. The rookie seventh-rounder slots in occasionally on offense, but his main contributions come on kick return where he's averaged 22.4 yards per return.

Nov 11, 2020 4:51 PM EST

Leaves with possible concussion

Cleveland exited Sunday's game against the Falcons to be evaluated for a concussion, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old returned three kicks for 72 yards before exiting during the first half. KJ Hamler has taken over kick return duties in Cleveland's absence.

Nov 8, 2020 11:24 AM EST

Resumes practicing in full

Cleveland (hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Cleveland wasn't able to suit up against the Steelers in Week 2 due to a hip injury, but he now appears back to full health. The rookie seventh-round pick looks like he'll be available against the Buccaneers on Sunday, but he's not likely to materialize as a productive fantasy option.

Sep 23, 2020 4:01 PM EST

Can't go Sunday

Cleveland (hip) is listed among Denver's inactive players for Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.

Analysis: The seventh-round draft choice earned his way onto the field Week 1 by virtue of a sterling rookie training camp, but he ultimately only attracted one target during a 16-14 loss to Tennessee. Cleveland has since picked up an injury, and he will not be available for second-year quarterback Drew Lock on Sunday.

Sep 20, 2020 9:00 AM EST

Uncertain for Sunday's game

Cleveland (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: Cleveland played just five snaps in Monday's season opener and caught his only target for seven yards. The rookie seventh-rounder was limited in practice all week, but if he doesn't play, it shouldn't shake up the offensive dynamic too much.
