Denver Broncos LB Jonathon Cooper (hamstring), LB Randy Gregory (knee), S P.J. Locke (concussion), OG Quinn Meinerz (hamstring), LB Aaron Patrick (concussion), S Caden Sterns (chest, hip) and RB Javonte Williams (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 3. WR Tyrie Cleveland (hamstring), CB Darius Phillips (hamstring), OG Dalton Risner (ankle), OT Billy Turner (knee) and CB K'Waun Williams (wrist) were limited during practice. The Broncos did not hold a practice Monday, so the injury report is an estimation.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) not only suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Week 4, but an MRI revealed also a torn lateral collateral ligament and posterolateral corner.
Huddle Up: Absolutely brutal news for Williams and the Broncos. With this amount of damage to his knee, it is fair to wonder if he will be cleared for training camp next summer. As far as the remainder of this season, Melvin Gordon becomes the clear lead runner in Denver and an every-week fantasy RB2 option. Mike Boone also figures to work in and should be a usable flex option in deeper leagues.

Updating an earlier report, Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the year.
Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon becomes a slam-dunk RB2, and they'll need to acquire another back to either split time with Mike Boone or be the third-down back. Boone should be picked up in most formats.

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) will have an MRI Monday, Oct. 3, on what is feared to be a serious knee injury.
Huddle Up: It's not clear what exactly the team is fearing, but a season-ender is possible. Melvin Gordon's value shoots up to a high-end RB2. Mike Boone is the only other option in the roster, and the team will likely have to bring in some depth.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) was on crutches after leaving the Week 4 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, and head coach Nathaniel Hackett said Williams will have an MRI on Monday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: If Williams is forced to miss playing time, Melvin Gordon would be the biggest beneficiary from a fantasy perspective. It's speculation, but he is likely to be sidelined for at least Week 5, because as luck has it, the Broncos face a quick turnaround with a Thursday game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams (knee) left the Week 4 game against the Las Vegas Raiders in the second half due to a right knee injury and he will not return.
Huddle Up: With Williams out, Melvin Gordon will gobble up a majority of the backfield touches. If Williams is forced to miss time, Gordon would be worth using as an RB2 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.
