  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Gets activated

    Ojemudia (elbow) was returned to the active roster Monday.

    Ojemudia suffered a dislocated elbow during a preseason contest and will be making his season debut Monday night. His return should be a boost to the Broncos' secondary.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Hoping to be available by Monday

    Head coach Nathaniel Hackett said that he hopes to have Ojemudia (elbow) on the team's active roster and off injured reserve by Monday night's contest versus the Chargers, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Ojemudia was placed on IR after suffering a dislocated elbow in August, and he's since missed the team's first first five games as a result. If the 200-pound cornerback is indeed elevated to Denver's active roster before Monday night's matchup against the Chargers, he'll likely serve as a depth piece in the Broncos' secondary behind Patrick Surtain, K'Waun Williams (wrist) and Damarri Mathis (knee).

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Back at practice

    Ojemudia (elbow) was designated to return from IR on Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Ojemudia was able to practice with the team Tuesday as a result, and he could return to play as soon as Monday against the Chargers. However, he will need to be activated to the 53-man roster before then, which the team now has three weeks to do.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Placed on IR

    The Broncos placed Ojemudia (elbow) on injured reserve Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

    Ojemudia made the initial 53-man roster, but he'll land on IR and miss at least the first four games of the regular season. The 2020 third-round pick was jockeying for a depth role in Denver's competitive secondary before he dislocated his elbow in mid-August.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Suffers elbow injury

    Ojemudia left the game with an elbow injury during Denver's 42-15 preseason loss at Buffalo on Saturday.

    It's unclear how severe the injury is, but more should be known upon another update from the team. The 24-year-old corner also left last week's preseason game versus Dallas prematurely to enter concussion protocol, and he missed 15 games due to a hamstring injury last season. Until he's ready to play again, K'Waun Williams and Damarri Mathis should see increased reps.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Dislocates elbow

    Ojemudia suffered a dislocated elbow Saturday, Andrew Mason of 104.3 The Fan reports.

    It's a really tough break for Ojemudia, who had been jockeying for depth chart positioning in an uber-competitive Broncos defensive backfield. He should still be in line to see the field in some capacity this season once he has fully recovered from his injury, but in the meantime, K'Waun Williams and Damarri Mathis will likely see most of Denver's reps at corner behind Patrick Surtain and Ronald Darby.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Cleared of concussion

    Ojemudia (concussion protocol) was cleared to return to Saturday's preseason game against Dallas.

    Ojemudia seems to have avoided any serious issues after he exited Saturday's exhibition to be evaluated for a potential concussion. The 24-year-old cornerback missed 15 games due to a hamstring injury last season, but he should play a prominent role in Denver's secondary if he can stay healthy during this coming regular season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Undergoing concussion evaluation

    Ojemudia (head) left Saturday' preseason game against the Cowboys to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

    Ojemudia is questionable to return to Saturday' exhibition after suffering a head injury. The 2020 third-round pick recorded 62 tackles and six passes defended over 16 games as a rookie, but he was sidelined for all but two weeks while dealing with a hamstring injury last season. When healthy, Ojemudia figures to compete with Damarri Mathis and Blessuan Austin for a primary depth role in Denver's secondary this preseason.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Activated from IR

    Ojemudia (hamstring) was activated from IR on Saturday.

    Ojemudia was injured during the preseason and it was expected his hamstring was more of a week-to-week issue, but this Sunday will be his first chance to play in 2021. Assuming the second-year pro is active Sunday against the Lions, he'll likely provide some depth in the secondary and snaps on special teams.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Designated to return from IR

    Ojemudia (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Ojemudia has yet to see game action in 2021 after suffering an injury during the preseason. The move opens a 21-day practice window during which he can be activated at any point before reverting to injured reserve for the rest of the season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Ojemudia (hamstring/illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Ojemudia tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in November but has now cleared the league's health and safety protocols. However, the cornerback will remain on injured reserve as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Ojemudia (hamstring) tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ojemudia is also dealing with a hamstring injury and has yet to play this season. The 2020 third-round selection will try to get healthy so he can take the field in 2021.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Lands on IR

    The Broncos placed Ojemudia (hamstring) on injured reserve Wednesday.

    Ojemudia's hamstring injury wasn't expected to be that serious, but he will start the season on injured reserve anyway. He has to spend a minimum of three weeks on IR before being eligible to return.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Suffers hamstring injury

    Ojemudia (hamstring) is considered week-to-week but should be OK, according to Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

    It was originally feared that Ojemudia suffered a knee injury in Saturday's 30-3 win over the Seahawks, but multiple sources indicate that the injury is related to his hamstring. The 23-year-old cornerback has had a solid training camp and preseason, but his playing time in the Denver defense likely will be limited going forward. The Broncos acquired Kyle Fuller, Ronald Darby and rookie Patrick Surtain this offseason, and this trio should see the majority of snaps in Denver's defensive backfield. Ojemudia's injury only muddies his situation more entering the 2021 season.

  • Broncos' Michael Ojemudia: Questionable with knee injury

    Ojemudia (knee) left Saturday's preseason contest against the Seahawks and is questionable to return, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    After undergoing minor knee surgery, Ojemudia was a full participant during Broncos' offseason work, but he appears to have suffered a setback during the preseason. The 2020 third-round pick had a productive rookie season, registering 62 tackles, six pass breakups and four forced fumbles. However, Denver acquired Ronald Darby, Kyle Fuller and Patrick Surtain this offseason, which will likely push Ojemudia to the outskirts of the depth chart.
