Broncos GM Confirms Talented Running Back On Track To Play Week 1

Denver Broncos' running back Javonte Williams has been making significant progress in his recovery from the torn ACL and LCL that sidelined him for the majority of the 2022 season.

Broncos general manager, George Paton, has recently stated that Williams is on track to start the 2023 season, contradicting a previous ESPN report that indicated Williams' injuries could keep him out for a more extended period.

Paton's optimistic outlook aligns with the fact that Williams has been actively rehabbing and has been able to jog with team trainers.

However, Williams' knee injury is significant, and the Broncos will likely ease him back into action with a carefully managed workload, similar to the way the Baltimore Ravens managed J.K. Dobbins' return from injury in 2022.

Even if Williams is ready for the start of the 2023 season, the Broncos will need to add depth to their backfield, given the uncertain status of Latavius Murray, Mike Boone, and Marlon Mack, who are all set to hit free agency.

Despite the need for additional running backs, the Broncos can breathe a sigh of relief that their dynamic young running back appears to be on track for a full recovery and a return to the field in the upcoming season.
