Shane Ray (wrist) will return and start Week 8 for Broncos

Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph said linebacker Shane Ray will return and start against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to the USA Today's Lindsay Jones.

What It Means:

Ray has yet to play this season after tearing a ligament in his wrist over the summer. He was designated to return a few weeks ago and will bring even more to a stellar Broncos defense. Ray's presence will limit Shaquil Barrett's snaps going forward.

As a part-time backer, the 24-year-old had 48 tackles and eight sacks last year. The Broncos are projected for 2.2 sacks and 5.8 FanDuel points at a cost of $4,700 on this week's Monday-inclusive slates.
