Denver Broncos: Players coming off of injury in 2019
Isaac Yiadom, CB
2018 injury: Separated shoulder
One of the many excellent draft picks from the Broncos’ stellar 2018 class, Isaac Yiadom was more of a late-bloomer than some of his fellow 2018 draftees.
Yiadom was inactive early in the season before getting his shot against the Baltimore Ravens, where he faced trial by fire in the form of the speedy veteran John Brown.
Though Brown got by him for a big play downfield, Yiadom responded well and seemed to have similar types of plays all year. He would get burned one play, and come back and make a really nice play the next. He seemed to be gaining some traction toward consistency near the end of the season before he separated his shoulder.
Because of the number of players the Broncos had lost at the position, Yiadom opted to play through the injury and was rewarded with his first interception as a pro, a pick off of Philip Rivers in the final game of the 2018 season.
Yiadom will be either the Broncos’ CB3 or CB4 depending on where Kareem Jackson is playing, but he should see significant snaps.
He did light work throughout OTAs and his recovery is ongoing. He’s expected to be ready when training camp opens in July.
