    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.

    Cincinnati Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    05/24/16TETyler EifertAnkleQUESTIONABLEEifert, who will undergo ankle surgery Wednesday, could potentially miss the first couple games of the upcoming NFL season, ESPN.com reports.

    Such a scenario remains speculative at this stage, given initial estimates relayed by the Cincinnati Enquirer that "a three-month recovery is anticipated, which puts Eifert's return to the field sometime in August." On the plus side, Eifert's upcoming surgery has been referred to as a "minimal procedure," so it's a little too early to count out the tight end for the Bengals' regular season opener on Sept. 11 against the Jets.

    04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDBurfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

    As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.

    04/27/16DBDarqueze DennardShoulderQUESTIONABLEDennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.

    04/27/16DLBrandon ThompsonKneeQUESTIONABLEAll the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).
