  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Finishes season with 6.5 sacks

    Jones (hip) made a career-high 47 tackles (24 solo) to go with 6.5 sacks and one forced fumble while playing 13 games in the 2022 season.

    Jones led the Broncos in sacks for the 2022 campaign despite playing in just 13 games. The veteran defensive end missed the final four games of the season after landing on injured reserve with a hip injury. It appears Jones won't require surgery, and he should be good to go in the offseason as he approaches the free-agent market. One of the Broncos' most solid young players on defense, Jones is likely to see many suitors around the league looking to bolster their defense with a young and rising star. It's possible the 26-year-old could sign a new deal with Denver, but he will likely command a sizable contract.

  • Broncos' Dre'Mont Jones: Won't undergo surgery

    Jones said that he was placed on injured reserve to due a hip labrum injury, but he does not expect to require surgery for this issue, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

    Jones is expected to need at least four to six weeks to recover from this issue, which will keep him on IR for the remainder of the regular season. The 25-year-old also added that this move to IR was to allow him to rest, with Denver already eliminated from postseason contention after falling to 3-10 in Week 14. Jones had already matched his career high in sacks through 13 games this season, and he could be in line for a solid payday when he hits free agency this coming offseason.

    Denver placed Jones (hip) on its season-ending injured reserve list Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    After physicians determined Jones would need four to six weeks to recover from the hip issue he's dealing with, his 2022 season is coming to an end. For the rest of this year, rookie sixth-rounder Matt Henningsen should see his role expand at defensive end.
