Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan discussed the team's tight end situation Thursday, July 27: "One of the reasons why we let Jeb (Putzier) go is because we felt like TE Nate Jackson looked very good, we were very impressed with him. Obviously with TE Wesley Duke coming out we didn't know he was going to get hurt but we thought we had some depth there at that position and with the drafting of TE Tony Scheffler we feel very good about him and that's one of the reasons we used a second round draft choice on him and with TE Stephen Alexander having the experience we felt good about that position, were fit at that position so hopefully we don't lose anybody."

Mike Klis, of the Denver Post, reports former Denver Broncos TE Wesley Duke (knee) suffered a knee injury Tuesday, May 30, on the first day of team's passing camp. He was waived Friday, June 2. Duke will have surgery Tuesday, June 6, to repair cartilage and bone damage in the knee. "I can't tell you what happened. All I can tell you is it gave out on me," Duke said Saturday, June 3. "It's real frustrating, but you've got to be healthy to play." Because Duke suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear in the same knee in 1999, there is concern about whether he can recover from his latest injury.

Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos TE Wesley Duke has returned from NFL Europe. In Europe, he experienced losing as part of a team with the developmental league's second-worst record and needed to demonstrate patience because he wasn't starting. "His deal going to Europe was tremendous for him," Broncos tight ends coach Tim Brewster said. "He's got a level of confidence now that he can do this." Despite Duke's modest role in the passing game, he did get plenty of practice working on his techniques on inside and outside zone running plays and combination blocks that are similar to skills used in the Broncos' system. The Broncos' tight end position is wide open given the March release of TE Jeb Putzier, the team's third- leading receiver last season.

Joseph Sanchez, of the Denver Post, reports Denver Broncos TE Wesley Duke said he agreed to give up his No. 84 to recently acquired WR Javon Walker without compensation because he believes it is best for the team. Duke chose to wear No. 48 because "it's 84 backwards," he said.

Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos WR Javon Walker has been told Broncos' TE Wesley Duke is switching to No. 48 and that Walker can have his No. 84. "It was really nice of him," Walker said. "Eighty-four is the number I came in with in the NFL and to continue wearing it here, I'm excited about it."
