RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-13

Browning recorded 25 tackles (19 solo), including 4.5 sacks, two passes defensed and two forced fumble over 10 contests during the 2023 campaign.

Browning was a key contributor for the Broncos' defense when he was on the field in 2023. Despite missing several contests with a knee injury and a concussion, the 24-year-old linebacker made the most of his opportunities when healthy. Browning is under contract through the 2024 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2025. He'll look to continue to play an important role as a playmaker in Denver's defense next season.

Due back Sunday

Browning (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Browning was limited Wednesday before getting in full sessions Thursday and Friday, clearing the concussion protocol. Browning missed Week 17 and should play in just his tenth game of 2023 this week after he missed the first six games of the year. On the season, Browning has 23 tackles (17 solo), 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles across nine appearances.

Practices fully

Browning (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday after participating on a limited basis in Wednesday's session.

The linebacker is trending toward playing Sunday against the Raiders after missing the Broncos' Week 17 win over the Chargers. Browning has 23 tackles, including 3.5 sacks, two passes defensed and two forced fumbles in nine games this season.

Back at practice Wednesday

Browning (concussion) was a limited participant at the Broncos' practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.

Browning missed Denver's Week 17 win over the Chargers with a concussion, but he took a step in the right direction to open the week Wednesday. The linebacker remains in concussion protocol and he'll look to log a full session before the end of the week in order to be available for Sunday's season finale versus the Raiders.

Out for Week 17

Browning (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Browning will miss his seventh game of the season after missing the first six of the year. With Browning sidelined Sunday, look for Nik Bonitto to soak up extra reps opposite Jonathan Cooper as Denver's main edge rushers versus Easton Stick.

Misses practice Wednesday

Browning (concussion) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Zac Stevens of reports.

Browning must have picked up the concussion in last Sunday night's loss to the Patriots. The third-year edge rusher has recorded just 3.5 sacks on 67 percent of the defensive snaps in the eight games he's appeared in after missing the first six contests of the year.

Picks up another sack

Browning recorded three tackles, including one sack in Sunday's 21-20 win over the Vikings.

Browning added one QB hit and a forced fumble for a solid performance Sunday. In the four games in which the veteran linebacker has appeared in 2023, he has now recorded 11 total tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and one pass defended. With the Broncos defense coming into its own in recent weeks, Browning should continue to have the chance to establish himself as a playmaker. The 24-year-old will get his next opportunity to build upon this momentum when the Broncos host the Browns in Week 12.

Gets first sacks of season Sunday

Browning had four solo tackles including two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Chiefs.

Browning was activated off the Broncos' injured reserve list ahead of their Week 7 bout against the Packers. He played 26 defensive snaps that game but upped it to 32 against the Chiefs on Sunday in a game when the Broncos defense combined for three sacks and five turnovers. Browning was responsible for one of those turnovers when he strip-sacked Patrick Mahomes with less than a minute to play in the second quarter. Browning will take advantage of the bye to get additional rest and prepare for Denver's Week 10 contest against the Bills on Nov. 13.

Activated off IR

The Broncos activated Browning (knee) off injured reserve Saturday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Browning underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus during the offseason and ultimately landed on IR to start the year. He now has a clear bill of health and will make his debut against the Packers. Barring any setbacks, he is expected to start on the edge at strongside linebacker.
