Patrick (hip) was a full participant in practice Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Jets, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick started the week with a pair of limited sessions, but he was cleared for a full practice Friday and subsequently should suit up without limitations come Sunday. He's opened the season on a two-game touchdown streak and has a nice opportunity to extend it in Denver's home opener against New York's inexperienced secondary.

Patrick (hip) is slated to practice in a limited capacity Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Denver will put a cap on Patrick's practice reps for the second straight day, but so long as he upgrades to full activity Friday, he should enter Sunday's game against the Jets minus an injury designation. After fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy (ankle) was placed on injured reserve ahead of last week's victory over the Jaguars, Patrick didn't see much of a spike his usage or volume. He played 73 percent of offensive snaps and delivered a 3-37-1 line on four targets Week 2, compared to a 70 percent snap share and a 4-39-1 line on four targets in the Broncos' season-opening win over the Giants.

Patrick (hip) will be limited in Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick will have two more opportunities to ramp up his practice level ahead of Sunday's contest against the Jets. Last weekend versus the Jaguars he managed three catches for 37 yards and a touchdown on four targets, while operating as the No. 2 wideout behind Courtland Sutton (12-159-0). With Jerry Jeudy (ankle) still on IR, the 27-year-old is primed to once again handle an increased role Week 3, though his hip injury will warrant monitoring.

Patrick secured three of four targets for 37 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 23-13 win over the Jaguars.
EDGE Analysis
With fellow wideout Jerry Jeudy placed on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, Patrick stepped in and played on 74 percent of Denver's offensive snaps in Week 2. The receiver's score was his second of the season, and it's clear that Teddy Bridgewater is building a strong chemistry with the veteran. Going forward, it is plausible to think that Patrick can continue to be an important part of the Broncos' passing attack, in turn making him an intriguing option in fantasy lineups while Jeudy misses time. The 27-year-old has the chance to build off this early season momentum when the Broncos host the struggling Jets in Week 3.

Patrick secured all four of his targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Giants.
EDGE Analysis
After a 2020 season with zero drops, Patrick picked up where he left off, catching every pass that Teddy Bridgewater threw his way. The 27-year-old wideout was tied for third in targets with KJ Hamler, behind only Noah Fant and Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy left the contest early with a high ankle sprain, which will more than likely sideline the wide receiver for multiple weeks. In his absence, Patrick figures to benefit as a trusted playmaker in the passing game. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder will have the chance to show what he can do in a more prominent role when the Broncos visit the Jaguars in Week 2.

Patrick (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
In and out of practice for the past few weeks, Patrick seems to be falling behind KJ Hamler, who caught two passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason opener against Minnesota. The two wide receivers are competing for the No. 3 role, though both are talented enough to earn some snaps from the fourth spot on the depth chart.

Patrick (groin) only participated in the walk-through portion of Tuesday's practice, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick has been in and out of practice since the first week of training camp, seemingly due to the same lingering groin/thigh injury. He didn't play in the preseason opener, in which KJ Hamler scored an 80-yard touchdown. Hamler and Patrick are believed to be competing for the No. 3 receiver job behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

Patrick (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
EDGE Analysis
Minor injuries have cost Patrick some practice time this summer, but he'll still have his shot to compete with KJ Hamler for the third spot at wide receiver. The Broncos open their preseason Saturday against the Vikings, and while Patrick won't necessarily play in that game, he seems to be on track at the very least for the second or third week of the exhibition slate.

Patrick (groin) was held out of practice Tuesday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick continues to miss practice due to a groin issue that coach Vic Fangio asserts is nothing serious, according to Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com. Denver's coaching staff is taking a cautious approach with the fourth-year wideout after he nursed a hamstring injury earlier in the offseason. In the wake of a knee injury suffered by fellow receiver Courtland Sutton in 2020, Patrick saw his opportunity grow, and he amassed 742 yards and six touchdowns on 51 catches. The 2017 undrafted free agent enters the 2021 season in a competition for the No. 3 wide receiver spot with KJ Hamler. However, Sutton's return to a talented group of pass catchers including Jerry Jeudy and Noah Fant will likely limit Patrick's target share in the Denver offense. Nonetheless, Patrick's availability in Denver's first preseason game against Minnesota on Aug. 14 should shed some light on the severity of his injury.

Patrick (groin) was unable to practice Sunday, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick missed practice Friday with what was deemed to be leg soreness, and after returning Saturday, he was right back on the sidelines Sunday. The wide receiver's participation, or lack thereof, in Denver's Aug. 14 preseason opener against the Vikings should provide a more definitive assessment of his health. Patrick will look to return to practice this week ahead of the preseason opener.
