    06/22/16RBDevontae BookerKnee Booker (knee) is making strides in learning Denver's offense as he recovers from a torn meniscus, the team's official site reports.

    Booker was reportedly a consideration for Denver at the end of the first round, so the team clearly believes that he has the physical skills to be a featured back. The mental aspects of the game could be the biggest adjustment for the young back, something he can improve on even while taking it slow as he recovers from a knee injury. The Broncos handed C.J. Anderson a front-loaded new contract earlier this year - rewarding him for being Denver's best offensive weapon through the playoffs. It might be tough for the rookie to unseat Anderson in year one, but Ronnie Hillman's role as the No. 2 could be up for grabs.

    05/16/16QBMark SanchezThumb Sanchez (thumb) is engaged in a neck-and-neck battle for Denver's top job with Trevor Siemian, The Denver Post reports.

    Just a week ago, the team's official website reported that Sanchez was cementing his place as the starter. So what gives? Chalk it up to the offseason news cycle that magnifies every ebb and flow in a position battle. While Siemian does have the most experience in Denver's offense, Sanchez has a background in it and is far more playing time under his belt. Both Siemian and first-round pick Paxton Lynch are dark horses to steal the job with strong camps - Sanchez is hardly the kind of quarterback who a team can hang its hat on - but it would still be an upset at this point if the veteran didn't start the season opener against Carolina.

    05/18/16RBJamaal CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

    04/27/16LBJustin HoustonKneeQUESTIONABLEHouston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

    The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.
