    05/17/16TEClive WalfordKneeQUESTIONABLEWalford (knee) will likely be cleared before training camp, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

    Walford is sitting out the first round of OTAs after injuring his knee in an offseason ATV accident. He may miss out on a few reps, but he should still have every opportunity to push for an increased role, likely at the expense of Mychal Rivera. The 2015 third-rounder caught 28 passes for 329 yards and three scores on 51 targets as a rookie; Rivera had 32 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown on 46 targets.

    04/27/16LBNeiron BallKneePROBABLEBall (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

    Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    04/27/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDThe Raiders and Smith (suspension) agreed to a two-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

    In the midst of a one-year suspension for another violation of the NFL's policy for substances of abuse, Smith will remain where he spent the first nine games of the 2015 season, when he contributed 3.5 sacks among 28 tackles to the Raiders' pass rush. It remains to be seen whether he'll be strictly contained to a one-year ban, as the commissioner's office has been known to do their due diligence once a suspended player applies for reinstatement. Depending on further adjustments made to the defense in the offseason, free-agent addition Bruce Irvin appears set to man strongside linebacker in the meantime.

    Denver Injuries

    05/24/16RBDevontae BookerKneePROBABLEBooker claims that he is coming to Denver to "take someone's job," The Salt Lake City Tribune reports.

    It's not entirely clear how Booker's remark will fly in the locker room, but starter C.J. Anderson has said that he was unbothered by it. Fantasy owners should like the chip on Booker's shoulder, though. Booker obviously has the skills Denver's front office like in a back, he was supposedly on their first-round shortlist, and a bevy of backs have succeeded in head coach Gary Kubiak's one-cut system. The team's investment in Anderson indicates that it might be hard for Booker to unseat him atop the depth chart in the short term, but the fact of the matter is that he will likel take someone's job this summer - if not Anderson, Ronnie Hillman or Juwan Thompson.

    05/18/16QBMark SanchezThumbPROBABLESanchez's experience figures to give him an edge in the Broncos' starting quarterback competition, The Denver Post reports.

    Sanchez, who had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his non-throwing hand's thumb earlier this month, participated in seven-on-seven and positional drills along with rookie Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian during OTAs this week. Although those two were also able to go through team drills, something Sanchez was unable to do, Sanchez's previous experience as an NFL starter bodes well for him going into training camp. That's when the Broncos' quarterback competition is expected to heat up, and despite not having started a Week 1 game since 2012, Sanchez's veteran status gives him the early leg up on Lynch and Siemian.
