    07/28/16LBDeMarcus WareBackNFIWare (back) should be medically cleared Friday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

    Even after he is cleared, Ware may wait a few weeks before he starts working out with the team. Given that he's about to turn 34 and is coming off an injury-plagued season, the cautious approach comes as no surprise. Speaking earlier this summer, Broncos GM John Elway admitted that Ware's lingering back injury is a concern. 2015 first-round selection Shane Ray could take on a larger role if Ware is absent/limited during the regular season.

    07/27/16DBAqib TalibLegNFITalib (foot) will begin training camp on the non-football injury list, Around The NFL reports.

    Talib was expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but the leg he injured a shooting incident in June appears to still be impacting him. It doesn't appear that the injury is too serious and Talib isn't expected to miss any time once the regular season rolls around.

    07/11/16RBDevontae BookerKneePROBABLEBooker's (knee) pass-catching ability could earn him early playing time, particularly in third-down situations, ESPN.com reports.

    Booker was taken during the fourth round this year, and despite coming off a February meniscus surgery, he's impressed with his hands during the Broncos' offseason program. Although C.J. Anderson projects as Denver's starting running back right now, Booker could push Ronnie Hillman for the backup job, which would feature third-down snaps and increase Booker's potential in PPR leagues.

    07/11/16QBMark SanchezThumbPROBABLESanchez opened training camp with the first-team offense, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

    While Denver's QB competition will reportedly be "wide open", the 29-year-old Sanchez should have an early edge over second-year pro Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch. All three signal-callers are expected to get work with the first-team offense during training camp, but that won't necessarily be the case in the preseason.

    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeFootNFIHeinicke will be out for three months after tearing a tendon in his left ankle in mid-July, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    Heinicke sustained the injury after attempting to enter his friend's home after the two had been locked out. The third-string quarterback attempted to budge the door open with his foot, but slipped and had his foot go through the window, resulting in a fairly serious injury. Clearly, this is a freak injury and the Vikings are hoping for a recovery by mid-season, but the damage to Heinicke's ankle only holds fantasy importance in the deepest of leagues.
