    08/27/16QBConnor ShawLegOUTShaw sustained a broken leg during Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    In the fourth quarter of Saturday's contest, Shaw suffered the fracture just above his ankle. He'll undergo surgery immediately, after which a recovery timetable will be plotted. If no ligament was damaged on the play, there's a chance that he'll be able to return this season. With placement on IR on the horizon, Shaw will yield to Brian Hoyer and David Fales in the pecking order behind starting quarterback Jay Cutler.

    08/18/16RBKa'Deem CareyHeadPROBABLECarey had four carries for nine yards and caught one of his two pass targets for an additional 10 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

    Carey entered the contest to start the second half, playing one series with much of the first-string offense on the field. He did play before Jordan Howard, so it would appear that he's currently the first in line to see early-down work if Jeremy Langford struggles or misses time.

    08/14/16DBKyle FullerKneeQUESTIONABLEFuller (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery this week and he is expected to miss several weeks, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Bears didn't specify which knee Fuller had scoped this week, but this is concerning news nonetheless for a player that's had a history of knee issues. The ominous "several weeks" timetable puts his status for Week 1 in question, which would leave the Bears down one of their starting corners for the opener against the Texans. If Fuller is unable to play in the opener, De'Vante Bausby or Deiondre' Hall would have to step up at the right corner spot.

    08/04/16LBDanny TrevathanKneePROBABLETrevathan (hamstring) recorded three tackles Saturday against the Chiefs.

    After missing last week's preseason game with a hamstring injury, it was good to see the veteran on the field for the all-important third preseason game. Despite the Bears defense struggling to keep the Chiefs off the field in this contest, he should be an excellent source of tackles this season, making him a quality IDP option.

    08/01/16TEZach MillerHeadPROBABLEMiller (concussion) will not play in Saturday's third preseason game against the Chiefs, Adam Johns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    No surprise here since Miller has been limited in practice throughout the week after sustaining a concussion early in August. With still another two weeks before Week 1 against the Texans comes around, Miller has plenty of time to fully cover for the season ahead.

    08/01/16WREddie RoyalHeadPROBABLERoyal (concussion) will not play in Saturday's third preseason game against Kansas City, Adam Johns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Royal has been back at practice for nearly a week, but the Bears won't look to take any chances with their veteran receiver during the preseason. He was spotted partaking in pregame warmups Saturday, so with another two weeks left before the season starts, it seems that Royal will be ready for when it matters most.

    08/15/16DLVance WalkerKneeOUTWalker 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.

    07/28/16LBDeMarcus WareBackNFIWare (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.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    07/27/16DBAqib TalibLegNFITalib (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.
