Description: The Denver Post is reporting that Broncos FS Brian Dawkins (knee) could return to practice this week.
Insight: Dawkins appears to be nearing the end of his stellar career. After missing five games this season, it might be worth Denver's while to assess what they have in young talent instead. (

Description: Per Max Broncos via Twitter, Broncos FS Brian Dawkins will likely be held out of the week 13 matchup against Kansas City.
Insight: While the extent of the injury is unknown, it sounds like he'll be sidelined at least one game. With Dawkins' skills on the decline, this just might be the right time for some younger guys to step up. (

Description: Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports that Broncos FS Brian Dawkins is expected to play in week 8.
Insight: After battling a strained knee ligament, it appears as if Dawkins will come back to play against the 49ers in London. His presence should be a much needed boost for a banged up secondary. (

Description: Dawkins signed with the Broncos over the weekend after spending his first 13 seasons in Philadelphia. He became the second safety, after Renaldo Hill, to move to Denver since free agency opened.
Insight: The Eagles have a history of making the right call when it comes to letting older players walk, particularly on defense -- e.g. Troy Vincent, Bobby Taylor and Hugh Douglas -- and Dawkins probably offers more value as a leader than a player at this point. However, he did still post solid numbers in 2008, with 75 tackles (64 solo) and three sacks. IDP owners should remain aware of his advancing age but not forget about him at draft time. (

Description: Dawkins made seven tackles (five solo) and a very athletic strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger to ice the Eagles' victory on Sunday.
Insight: Dawkins has been hearing constant age questions in Philadelphia recently, so it will be interesting to see if he's more motivated to produce. Of course, motivation has never been a problem for him. He certainly has lost a step or two, but Dawkins can still help an IDP lineup at times. (Matt Schauf/
