Broncos In The NFL: Week 4
Oct. 3, 2017

BOISE, Idaho - Demarcus Lawrence added yet another sack to his NFL-leading total this past Sunday, standing out among the Boise State alumni during the NFL's Week 4.

Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi returned to London as the Dolphins took on New Orleans, but ran for just 46 yards as the Saints shut out Miami, 20-0.

Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin, who, entering 2017, had three games remaining on his league-mandated suspension from last season, is eligible to be activated by the Buccaneers ahead of Week 5's contest.

Entering Week 4 there were 21 former Broncos under contract with NFL clubs, with 13 on active 53-man rosters. While Martin was on Tampa Bay's suspended list during Week 4, linebacker Shea McClellin (New England Patriots), safeties Chanceller James (San Francisco 49ers) and Jeron Johnson (Jacksonville Jaguars), and defensive tackle Billy Winn (Denver Broncos) will spend the season on injured reserve after suffering season-ending injuries during the preseason. Three more Broncos, offensive lineman Travis Averill (Cleveland Browns), cornerback Donte Deayon (New York Giants), and running back Jeremy McNichols (San Francisco 49ers), are currently on the practice squads of their respective teams.
