The first round of cuts are coming soon, but a few quick tidbits from Bruce Arians’ press conference today:
— CB Mike Jenkins tore his right ACL. He will go on injured reserve and is out for the season.
— WR Smokey Brown has had two days of being headache-free. That’s a step in the right direction, but it was without exercise. We’ll see how quickly he can return to full practice.
— Rookie Kam Canaday has won the long-snapper job over Danny Dillon, Arians said.
— RB Stepfan Taylor is out a week-to-10 days with a knee bruise.
— QB Jake Coker may need arthroscopic surgery on his knee, Arians said. The plan is for Matt Barkley to play the entire fourth preseason game if that happens. The Broncos have said the plan is for their No. 1 draft pick, Paxton Lynch, to play the entire game at quarterback against the Cardinals.
— Arians said he expects safety Tyrann Mathieu to be ready to go Sept. 11 against the Patriots, although he likely won’t play against the Broncos.
