  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Playing Sunday

    Purcell (ribs) will play in Sunday's game against the Jets, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    The backup nose tackle missed the Broncos' Week 4 win over the Bears after suffering his injury during the team's Week 3 loss to the Dolphins. Purcell has two tackles in the three games in which he's played.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Out Sunday

    Purcell (ribs) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears.

    The 32-year-old missed the entire week of practice after suffering a rib injury during Denver's Week 3 loss to Miami, so it's no surprise he's been ruled out this Sunday. Purcell is listed as the team's backup nose tackle and he's only recorded two total tackles through three games, making this a relatively small loss for the Broncos' defense.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Ready to roll for Week 3

    Purcell (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against Miami.

    Purcell didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday before logging a limited session Friday, so it's surprising to see the veteran cleared to suit up. He played a rotational role during the first two games of the campaign and figures to see around 20 defensive snaps versus the Dolphins.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Rejoins Denver

    Purcell signed with the Broncos on Thursday after being released by the team on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

    The move coincides with cornerback K'Waun Williams, safety P.J. Locke and tackle Alex Palczewski all being placed on injured reserve. Purcell played in all 17 games last season for the Broncos, registering 45 tackles (21 solo) and 1.5 sacks.

  • Mike Purcell: Let go by Denver

    The Broncos released Purcell on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Purcell underwent knee surgery during the offseason and began training camp on the active/non-football injury list. However, he passed his physical last week and was activated by Denver. The 32-year-old couldn't secure a spot on the 53-man roster but will seek out opportunities elsewhere now that he's healthy.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Passes physical, off NFI list

    Purcell (knee) passed his physical and was activated from the active/non-football injury list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Purcell began training camp on the active/non-football injury list while rehabbing from offseason knee surgery, but it appears he's getting close to full strength with the regular season just over two weeks away. Despite batting the lingering knee issue, Purcell appeared in all 17 games last year and figures to garner a similar rotational role in 2023.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Lands on NFI list

    Purcell (knee) was placed on the active/non-football injury list Sunday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Purcell played through a knee injury last season and ended up undergoing minor offseason surgery to repair it. However, it appears the 32-year-old is still recovering from the procedure, which also forced him to miss OTAs earlier this spring. He will be eligible to return once he can pass a physical.

  • Broncos' Mike Purcell: Sitting out OTAs

    Purcell is being held out of OTAs as he recovers from minor offseason knee surgery, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Purcell appeared in all 17 games for the Broncos last season, so it's unlikely his offseason procedure will cause him to miss much time, although it's not yet clear if he'll be available at the start of training camp. When healthy, Purcell should play a significant role in the team's defensive line rotation.
