Janovich signed a three-year, $5.7 million contract extension with the Broncos on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Janovich plays a key role in Denver's run game and as a pass blocker, so it's not very surprising that the team has decided to lock the 26-year-old fullback up for the near future. While Janovich doesn't carry fantasy value himself, having eclipsed five carries in a season only once, he provides a boost for Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman.
Janovich (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.
After missing the first three games, Janovich is gearing up for his season debut. He'll look to pave the way for Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, and work as a pass-blocker.
Janovich (pectoral) has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Aric DiLalla of the team's official website reports.
Janovich was limited at practice earlier in the week, but managed a full workload Friday. After missing three consecutive games to kickoff the year, it looks like he will have the chance to make his season debut. Still, confirmation on his status is unlikely to be made until closer to game time.
Janovich (pectoral) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Janovich has missed three consecutive tilts due to his lingering pectoral issue, but he appears to have a shot of retaking the field Week 4 versus Jacksonville. If Janovich is able to get healthy in time for Sunday's contest, Andrew Beck will be relegated to a reserve role at fullback.
