Broncos' Jalen Virgil: Will require surgery
Virgil was diagnosed with a torn meniscus that will require full meniscus surgery, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Virgil injured his knee on the final play of the first half of Denver's loss to San Francisco on Saturday and will be out a few months at the very least. The 25-year-old signed as an undrafted free agent last year and appeared in two games during the 2022 campaign, catching two of his five targets for 75 yards and a touchdown.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Jalen Virgil: Undergoes further testing
Virgil had an MRI on his knee Sunday, and the team is awaiting the results, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Virgil suffered the injury during Saturday's preseason contest with the 49ers and was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game. The 25-year-old was likely on the bubble as far as making the 53-man roster, so good news on the MRI would be especially important for the Appalachian State product.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Jalen Virgil: Injures knee Saturday
Virgil left Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers with a knee injury, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.
Virgil was injured at the end of a 50-yard catch. He needed help to the sideline before he eventually hopped on a cart to the locker room. Undrafted out of Appalachian State last year, Virgil caught two passes for 75 yards and one touchdown across nine games as a rookie.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Jalen Virgil: Not targeted in loss
Virgil failed to record a single target in Sunday's 22-16 overtime loss to the Raiders.
Virgil played just seven of the Broncos' 64 offensive snaps in the contest, ranking fourth among Denver's receiving corps behind Courtland Sutton (59), Kendall Hinton (56) and practice-squad member Brandon Johnson (22). The rookie wideout was a complete non-factor on offense Sunday after scoring the Broncos' only touchdown in Week 10. Virgil should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos visit the Panthers in Week 12.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Jalen Virgil: Finds end zone in loss
Virgil secured his only target for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans.
Virgil's first career touchdown was the result of a busted coverage in the Titans' secondary, as Russell Wilson connected with the wide open rookie for the Broncos' only touchdown of the contest. In his first game, the 24-year-old played 30 percent of Denver's offensive snaps, a number that was likely elevated based on fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy exiting the game with an ankle injury in the first quarter. Though the long score helped Virgil finish with a respectable fantasy performance on just one target, expecting him to replicate that output with limited opportunities in a struggling offense is a risky proposition. Even if Jeudy misses time, Virgil would likely be the fourth option at receiver at best behind Courtland Sutton, Kendall Hinton and Tyrie Cleveland. It's also possible that KJ Hamler could make a return from a hamstring injury that kept him sidelined in Week 10, further complicating matters for the rookie. Virgil should remain off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Raiders in Week 11.... See More ... See Less
