When asked if Hali (knee) would record any snaps in the preseason, head coach Andy Reid responded, "Only if I feel they are right."
Hali was taken off the PUP list on Monday as he finally is healthy enough to take the field after undergoing offseason knee surgery. There is no reason for the Chiefs to rush their veteran linebacker back into the fold and will likely only give him reps when they are 100% confident in his health.
In his fourth practice since coming off PUP, Charles (knee) did some work in full-team drills Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Charles' continued progress is encouraging, but the Kansas City Star notes that the Chiefs aren't inclined to push the running back into preseason action. When asked Tuesday if Charles or LB Tamba Hali were candidates to take the field Saturday against the Bears or next week against the Packers, coach Any Reid said, "only if I feel if they're right. But I'm not going to stick them out there if there"s a question on it."
Walker has an ACL injury that will cause him to miss the entire 2016 season, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.
Walker was carted off the field during Monday's practice, and an MRI confirmed the worst case scenario. The veteran defensive lineman was projected to backup Derek Wolfe on the left side of the line this season. Calvin Heurtelou now figures to slide into that role.
Ware (undisclosed) practiced in half-speed team drills Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.
The Broncos looked like their old selves Wednesday with the returns of both Aqib Talib and Ware. While the quarterback dilemma is likely to linger on all season long, having Ware back on the field is a huge boost, regardless of form. In just 11 games last season, the 34-year-old registered 7.5 sacks to compliment 25 combined tackles. Ware is an unquestionable leader of Denver's defense, and the mere sight of him on the practice field is likely to lift team spirits.
Talib (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.
Talib's roller coaster offseason seems to finally be approaching a halt. His leg is near 100 percent, and after a report earlier this week indicating that Talib is likely to play on Saturday, there is reason to be optimistic in Denver. The Broncos have a plethora of stability issues at the moment, so seeing Talib back on the practice field Wednesday has to be reassuring for coach Gary Kubiak and company.
