    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.

    The Vikings have dealt with a ridiculous string of injuries at the safety position over the past few weeks, allowing Exum to make a couple of starts. The team is now left with Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring), Robert Blanton (knee), Andrew Sendejo (knee) and newly-signed Anthony Harris.

    04/08/16DLLinval JosephToe Joseph (foot) will have toe surgery during the offseason, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports

    This shouldn't come as any surprise, given that Joseph dealt with a foot injury throughout the entire second half of the season. He missed Weeks 12-16, but with 56 tackles in just 12 games, Joseph cemented his reputation as one of the league's better run-stopping interior linemen. He only has 12.5 sacks in 81 career games.
