Noah Fant removed from final injury report for Week 15

The Broncos tight end appears to be through the illness that kept him out last week.

Friday update: Fant was removed from the final injury report and is on track to play on Saturday.

Wednesday update: Noah Fant appears to be on track to play on Saturday. He was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday, marking his first on-field session since leaving Sunday’s game with an illness.

The Denver Broncos had a walkthrough practice on Tuesday, and estimated tight end Noah Fants as not practicing, per Denver7’s Troy Renck. Fant was able to suit up and start for the Broncos last week against the Panthers, but was forced from the game due to an illness. We won’t paint a picture, but there were reports of puking.

The Broncos will host the Buffalo Bills on Saturday and it would seem to be enough time for Fant to get back on track, but only time will tell. Fant has dealt with injuries all season and hasn’t been able to contribute nearly as much as many thought he would. He started the season with two strong games, scoring in both, but those have been his only touchdowns on the season. There is plenty of fantasy upside for Fant moving forward and he makes for a good dynasty target, but this season is mostly one to forget for Fant and his fantasy backers.
