n help Denver "Winn from now on."" Denver Broncos RosterBroncos 2019 Roster Review: Defensive lineman Billy WinnNew Shannon Sharpe Jersey ,4commentsThe veteran defender is hoping he can help Denver “Winn from now on.”MDTBilly Winn was a solid contributor for the Broncos under Wade Phillips and Gary Kubiak in 2016. He spent the first few years of his career in Cleveland, then Indianapolis before coming to Denver to provide depth along the defensive line. Billy Winn ProfileWinn was brought onto the 90-man roster in 2016 for defensive line depth after Phil Taylor was placed on injured reserved. He made it out of camp and onto the 53-man roster and saw rotational action in every game in 2016, logging 30 percent of the total possible defensive snaps.In 2017, Winn was having a good camp and looked to be on his way to making the roster again when he tore his ACL in a preseason game, landing him on IR for the rest of the season. Winn spent 2018 rehabbing his injury, and Denver brought him back to again compete for a roster spot.QuotableQuote from 2016 when asked about how the season was going:Billy Winn’s roster status with the BroncosThe Broncos are pretty stacked on the defensive line with Shelby Harris, Wolfe, and Gotsis looking to take the three starting down linemen spots in base fronts, with Zach Kerr Tom Jackson Jersey , Demarcus Walker, and Dre’Mont Jones bringing up the second team, but Winn is a veteran guy with experience and has been a solid rotational guy when healthy.In Chicago, Fangio carried 6-7 defensive linemen on the 53-man roster over the last three years, so there could potentially one more defensive lineman spot up for grabs for Winn depending on how everything shakes out.The fact that Denver decided to bring him back after his injury and rehab shows they see some value in him. I think he has a decent chance of making the roster if he is able to stay healthy. Two key members of the Broncos offense spent the offseason working their way back from injuries and both of them are set to practice with the team at training camp on Thursday.Running back Phillip Lindsay said earlier this week that he felt ready to practice after a wrist injury that required surgery, but that the team’s medical staff and coaches still needed to give him the green light. They apparently agreed with Lindsay because head coach Vic Fangio said on Wednesday that Lindsay is “ready to go” for the first practice of camp.The same is true of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. General Manager John Elway said at his press conference that Sanders, who tore his Achilles last year, would not be placed on the physically unable to perform list to open camp.Sanders said on Tuesday that he would not be “full go” at the start of camp and Fangio said they’ll “obviously” ease Lindsay back to full speed as well. Fangio added that he expected things to move quickly with Lindsay once camp is fully up and running.
