Quinton Carter
News
The Broncos made several roster moves on Saturday, according to the Denver Post.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Montee Ball
News
Broncos running back Montee Ball, limited to five games last season by a groin injury, promised he'll return "ready to win the job," reports ESPN.com. Ball was the starter entering the 2014 season, but in 2015 he'll likely vie for a backup role behind C.J. Anderson, who went to the Pro Bowl.

Ball also must compete with Juwan Thompson and Ronnie Hillman in the crowded backfield. Ball was ineffective before getting hurt, averaging 3.1 yards per carry.

Injury
Groin - IR. Out for season

Sylvester Williams
News
With free agency approaching for defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, Broncos general manager John Elway spoke highly of Sylvester Williams -- Knighton's possible replacement -- during Thursday's combine press conference, per the Denver Post.

"We still like Sylvester, we think there's still a lot of potential there, and we are not sure that he has scratched it yet. If there's any guy that can get it out of our players it's our new defensive line coach Bill Kollar," Elway said. "So Sylvester is going to get tested, and will get pushed. And I think it will be a good thing for Sylvester."

Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2013, registered 21 tackles (17 solo) last season for the Broncos. He had two sacks his rookie year.

Connor Barth
News
Broncos kicker Connor Barth made both of his field goal attempts as well as his only extra point attempt in Denver's 24-13 loss to the Colts Sunday. 

Barth made field goals from 45 and 41 yards respectively. He finishes the year going 17 of 18 on field goals and 16 of 16 on extra points in six games as a Bronco.

Ben Garland
News
The Broncos have listed Montee Ball, Quinton Carter, Virgil Green, Kapri Bibbs , Steven Johnson, Ben Garland and Michael Schofield as inactive Week 9 against the Patriots.

Marvin Austin
News
The following players have been listed as inactive for the Broncos in Week 12 against the Dolphins: Montee Ball, Julius Thomas, Ronnie Hillman, Tony Carter, Chris Clark, Michael Schofield and Marvin Austin.

Danny Trevathan
News
Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan had surgery on his left leg Tuesday, reports ESPN.com. Trevathan missed 13 games this season due to separate fractures in the leg and a dislocated left kneecap.

He was the team's leading tackler in 2013.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Kerry Taylor
News
The Cowboys have added wideout Kerry Taylor to the practice squad.

Taylor had recently been with the Jaguars, but was waived Tuesday. He didn't last long, as Dallas decided to scoop him up. Taylor appeared in seven games last season, catching 19 passes. 

Gerald Rivers
News
The Broncos have re-signed defensive end Gerald Rivers to their practice squad. Rivers was released by the Broncos Dec. 4 to sign kicker Brandon McManus. 

Rivers has been on the Dolphins and Jaguars practice squads over the last two years as well. 

Will Montgomery
News
The Broncos will head into their divisional round playoff matchup with the Colts relatively healthy. Defensive tackle Mitch Unrein (knee) and linebacker Brandon Marshall (foot) are considered questionable. Quanterus Smith has been declared out with a knee injury.

Ward (neck), and Kayvon Webster (shoulder) are all considered probable for Sunday's game.

The Broncos are currently 7-point favorites against the Colts.

Brandon Marshall
News
When asked, Bears general manager Ryan Pace wouldn't make any commitments to wide receiver Brandon Marshall moving forward, according to the team's radio network sideline reporters. Per the Miami Herald, Pace was "clearly unenthused" about Marshall leaving the team to tape episodes of Showtime's "Inside the NFL."

"Football needs to be the No. 1 priority," Pace said. "We've got to analyze everything and it goes beyond the players."

Marshall had his season cut short in Week 14 when he was rushed to the hospital with rib and lung injuries. He finished the year with 61 catches for 721 yards and eight touchdowns. Marshall has seven 1,000-yard receiving seasons, including two with the Bears. He has never made the playoffs during his nine-year career.

Andre Caldwell
News
In an uncharacteristically meager offensive performance by the Broncos in St. Louis on Sunday, several skill position players provided small contributions.

Included were wide receiver Andre Caldwell and tight end Jacob Tamme, who managed 31 yards receiving apiece while Wes Welker added just 28 on four receptions. Running back Juwan Thompson chipped in with one catch for five yards.

Zac Dysert
News
Brock Osweiler
News
Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.

Jacob Tamme
News
Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme is set to become a free agent this offseason and he said Monday he expects to hit the free agent market.

Tamme said on Sirius XM NFL radio he'd love a chance to be back in Denver. His production over the last few years has declined. In 2012, Tamme had 52 catches for 555 yards and two touchdowns, but in 2014, he had just 14 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns. He made $1.25 million in 2014.

Kenny Anunike
Injury
Elbow - IR. Out for season
No Updates
Kapri Bibbs
News
The Broncos elevated running back Jeremy Stewart from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster on Saturday, the Denver Post reports. In a corresponding move, the Broncos waived running back Kapri Bibbs.

Denver needed some depth at running back with Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman both ruled out for Week 12 with injuries. Stewart is expected to be the No. 3 running back Sunday at home against Miami.

Louis Vasquez
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is active Week 9 against the Patriots.

Hillman was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. He was never really a candidate to sit. The team will also have Lamin Barrow, Omar Bolden, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon McManus, Juwan Thompson, Louis Vasquez and Kayvon Webster. All seven players were listed as probable coming into the contest. 

Lerentee McCray
News
Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and running back C.J. Anderson (ankle) are active for the game against Buffalo after being listed as probable.

Also suiting up for Denver are offensive tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (elbow), linebacker Lerentee McCray (illness), center Will Montgomery (knee), defensive end Quanterus Smith (ribs), cornerback Aqib Talib (hamstring), tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).

Tony Carter
News
The Broncos have declared the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts: Cody Latimer, Tony Carter, Juwan Thompson, Paul Cornick, Michael Schofield, Dominique Jones and Mitch Unrein.

Thompson played in 15 games for Denver this season, averaging 5.0 yards per carry with three touchdowns. He was considered probable on the team's final injury report of the week with hip and knee injuries.

The Broncos are currently 9 1/2-point favorites against the Colts Sunday.

Matt Paradis
News
C.J. Anderson
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters during Wednesday's combine press conference that he met with running back C.J. Anderson and told him "you need to walk in here handling yourself like a starter," per ESPN.

Kubiak's zone-blocking offense is running-back friendly, which could benefit Anderson moving forward. Anderson started last season as the No. 3 running back on the depth chart before emerging as the top back with 849 yards rushing, 324 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns in 15 games (seven starts). He will enter next season as the team's No. 1 back, though he'll have to fight off challenges from Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman.

Chris Harris
News
The Broncos and cornerback Chris Harris have agreed on a five-year contract extension worth $42.5 million, the Denver Post reports.

The two sides opened contract talks last month but a deal appeared to be on life support before general manager John Elway became personally involved in the discussions. Harris ranks as the No. 1 cornerback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus, and passers have managed just a 46.9 quarterback rating when challenging the Denver cornerback. He's also been in the top 10 of the same rating system among all cornerbacks in 2012 and 2013.

Nathan Palmer
News
The Broncos declared these players inactive for Sunday night's game against the Colts: running back Ronnie Hillman, wideout Nathan Palmer, defensive back Kayvon Webster, linebacker Danny Trevathan (leg), offensive linemen Michael Schofield and Ben Garland and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
Kyle Williams
News
The Chiefs have announced their final round of cuts and other moves to reach the league-mandated roster of 53 players.

Among the offensive players let go are fullback Jordan Campbell, wide receivers Fred Williams and Mark Harrison, guard Ricky Henry, tackle J'Marcus Webb and running back Charcandrick West.

The defensive players gone from the roster are safeties Jonathon Amaya and Malcolm Bronson, linemen Dominique Hamilton, Kyle Love and Kona Schwenke, linebackers Alonzo Highsmith, Devan Walker and Nico Johnson and cornerbacks Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Van Dyke .

The Chiefs have also placed Tyler Bray and Kyle Williams on IR and Mike Catapano on the non-football injury list.

Peyton Manning
News
More evidence points to Peyton Manning playing in 2015. 

According to The Denver Post, the Broncos and Manning are working together on a restructured contract. Manning is slated to make $19 million per season in 2015 and 2016. The Broncos could be working on this deal to create some space to bring back receiver Demaryius Thomas and/or tight end Julius Thomas, both of which will be free agents. 

The restructuring of the deal is perhaps why Manning has yet to make an announcement that he's returning for the 2015 season. 

Manning threw for 4,727 yards, 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2014. 

Brandon McManus
News
The Broncos have promoted kicker Brandon McManus from their practice squad to the 53-man active roster and released punt returner Isaiah Burse on Saturday, according to the Denver Post.

McManus lost his job to Connor Barth in Week 13, after connecting on just 9 of 13 field goal attempts this season. Barth is expected to continue handling field goal duties, while McManus is expected to handle kickoffs for the Broncos.

Wes Welker
News
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak told reporters during his combine press conference on Wednesday that wide receiver Wes Welker has no plans to retire this offseason, per NFL.com.

Welker was reportedly weighing retirement, but he rebuffed those rumors when he told the Denver Post Monday that he's "getting ready for 2015."

Welker will become an unrestricted free agent in March, and Kubiak added that he would "love to have him back" with the Broncos. The 33-year-old, who has dealt with a number of concussions during his career, is coming off a season in which he hauled in 49 passes for 464 yards and two touchdowns. He has 890 catches for 9,822 yards in his 12-year career.

Julius Thomas
News
Frank Bauer, Julius Thomas' agent, told reporters before the annual players' union-agent meeting Friday that people are trying to push his client away from the Broncos, per the Denver Post.

"The Broncos came to me, we tried to get it done, it didn't work," Bauer said. "Does Julius love Denver? Yes. Does Julius love the fans there? No question. Does he love the organization and the community? Look at what he does for kids in that town.

"But for some reason people are trying to tear him down. In my opinion what they're doing by tearing him down is pushing him away."

Bauer also revealed that Thomas was nursing a torn ligament in addition to an ankle sprain, which kept him sidelined three games during the final stretch of the season. Thomas finished 2014 with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"The inner circle of the NFL -- not all the people talking on the outside, the guys who make the decisions -- they believe he's a unique and elite tight end," Bauer said. "Performance dictates every athlete's future. He is the best in the red zone. He is young. He has upside, as the inner circle would say.

"Yes, he got a high ankle sprain that was a concern because the first time he had a high ankle sprain it was later diagnosed as (ligament) tears."

Talks between both sides broke off last summer when Denver offered Thomas a five-year deal, worth $40 million. Bauer remains hopeful that talks will resume negotiations before March 10 when Thomas becomes an unrestricted free agent. According to NFL.com, the Raiders, Jets, Falcons and should all be in play if he hits the open market.

Omar Bolden
News
Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman is active Week 9 against the Patriots.

Hillman was listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. He was never really a candidate to sit. The team will also have Lamin Barrow, Omar Bolden, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon McManus, Juwan Thompson, Louis Vasquez and Kayvon Webster. All seven players were listed as probable coming into the contest. 

Shaquil Barrett
News
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs to the active roster and waived linebacker Shaquil Barrett.
Lamin Barrow
News
The Broncos will have both Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.

The team will also have nearly all of their probable players. That means C.J. Anderson, Lamin Barrow, David Bruton Jr., Ryan Clady, Chris Clark, Ronnie Hillman, Will Montgomery, Manny Ramirez, Jacob Tamme, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Kayvon Webster and Derek Wolfe will all attempt to play. 

Nate Irving
News
Despite finishing his season on injured reserve with a knee injury that required surgery, teams have expressed interest in linebacker Nate Irving, a source told ESPN.

Irving played for the Broncos in 2014, but suffered a torn ACL in November, which required surgery. He will become a free agent in March.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Aaron Brewer
News
Four Broncos who were listed as probable are active for Monday night's game against the Raiders. They are safety Omar Bolden (shoulder), linebacker Aaron Brewer (rib), tight end Jacob Tamme (undisclosed) and safety Duke Ihenacho (ankle).
DeMarcus Ware
News
Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is hoping to run a more aggressive defense in 2015, according to ESPN.

"We're aggressive," Phillips said. "Defensive players, they’re aggressive by nature. I think you take something away from them when you don’t let them be." Phillips clarified that he won't necessarily get blitz-happy, but said he would have an "attack defense. That’s the way players like to play," Phillips said. "You get the best results out of that and I think you play the best that way so we’ll be that way."

Phillips' strategy should be a welcome addition in Denver. Former defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was often criticized for the team's lack of aggression on defense. Phillips already has the support of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware.

"This defense has the players to do it, we need just to get in the lab and figure out how to be better," Miller said. "Because we had moments where we showed what we can do, but we didn’t do it enough, myself included, I know that."

Ware added, "we feel like there’s more we can do. We want every play to be hard on the quarterback."

Manny Ramirez
News
The Broncos will have both Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.

Von Miller
News
Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is hoping to run a more aggressive defense in 2015, according to ESPN.

"We're aggressive," Phillips said. "Defensive players, they’re aggressive by nature. I think you take something away from them when you don’t let them be." Phillips clarified that he won't necessarily get blitz-happy, but said he would have an "attack defense. That’s the way players like to play," Phillips said. "You get the best results out of that and I think you play the best that way so we’ll be that way."

Phillips' strategy should be a welcome addition in Denver. Former defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was often criticized for the team's lack of aggression on defense. Phillips already has the support of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware.

"This defense has the players to do it, we need just to get in the lab and figure out how to be better," Miller said. "Because we had moments where we showed what we can do, but we didn’t do it enough, myself included, I know that."

Ware added, "we feel like there’s more we can do. We want every play to be hard on the quarterback."

Emmanuel Sanders
News
Although Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' only communication with Peyton Manning was through a postseason text message, he believes that the veteran quarterback will return for another season, he told NFL.com on Friday.

Sanders and the Broncos were eliminated by the Colts in the AFC divisional round. Since that loss, the Broncos' coaching staff has been overhauled, with coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase heading to Chicago.

"Well, Gase is definitely in Chicago right now," Sanders said. "And Peyton says he's going to come back, but I'm not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind."

Gary Kubiak was hired to take Fox's place in Denver, and Sanders said that if Manning doesn't return, backup Brock Osweiler would fit "really well" in the team's new offensive scheme.

"Yeah, I think Brock is a quarterback that is on the rise, he's going to continuously get better and I feel like Kubiak's offense fits him really well," Sanders said.

Sanders signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Broncos last March. He earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl after totaling 101 catches for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs.
