    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.

    05/17/16WRDonte MoncriefToe Moncrief (toe) has started running routes, according to his Twitter account.

    Moncrief aggravated a toe injury late last season and ended up having surgery on it earlier this offseason. He's missed Indy's offseason practices, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

    04/25/16DLHenry AndersonKnee Anderson is aiming to complete his rehab from a torn ACL by Week 1 of the upcoming season, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports. "We haven't gotten into specific 'return to play' dates yet but everything is ahead of schedule so far," he said earlier this week. "My knee feels awesome."

    The Colts lost both Andrew Luck and Anderson for the season during a Week 9 win versus the Broncos, but the defensive end's injury was lost in the wake of the franchise quarterback's ordeal. In any case, Anderson has embarked on his second ACL recovery -- the other occurred in high school -- as he attempts to show that his impressive rookie campaign wasn't a fluke. In parts of nine games before the injury, he notched one sack among 31 tackles (19 solo).

    02/16/16LBJosh McNaryGroin McNary (groin) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

    A reserve inside linebacker, McNary hasn't seen much of the field since Jerrell Freeman returned from an injury in Week 15. McNary finishes his season with 14 tackles in 13 appearances, after registering 28 takedowns in 15 games last season. His contract runs through 2016, but there's a good chance he'll have to compete for a roster spot next year.
