  • San Diego Injuries

    07/26/16RBDanny WoodheadAnklePROBABLEWoodhead is fully healthy ahead of the start of training camp Saturday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Woodhead sprained his ankle at the end of San Diego's minicamp this spring, but the time off has fortunately allowed him to make a full recovery. With teammate Melvin Gordon (knee) coming off microfracture surgery, Woodhead should be plenty involved out of the backfield early on, and is coming off a season in which he led the Chargers in catches (80), receiving yards (755) and receiving touchdowns (six). With numbers like those, the veteran continues to stand out in PPR leagues, making his return to health encouraging for the Chargers and fantasy owners alike.

    (Updated 07/25/2016)
    07/11/16WRSteve JohnsonGroinPROBABLEAfter missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

    Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

    07/11/16DBJason VerrettHamstringPROBABLEVerrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

    (Updated 02/18/2016)
    04/27/16DBBrandon FlowersKneePROBABLEFlowers (knee) is healthy after ending the season on IR, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Flowers failed to record a single interception last season, the first time he hasn't recorded at least one takeaway in his six-year career. Couple that with the fact that he registered just 33 tackles (29 solo), and it's fair to say Flowers is coming off his worst season as a pro. However, following an offseason in which the 30-year-old corner reportedly trimmed 10-12 pounds off his frame and appears completely healthy following a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season, Flowers looks to be on the upswing heading into the new year. Even with Casey Hayward joining the secondary via free agency, Flowers is still expected to start opposite Jason Verrett and could be a good candidate to rebound should he stay healthy.

    (Updated 05/24/2016)
    04/27/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

    Denver Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    07/28/16LBDeMarcus WareBackNFIWare (back) should be medically cleared Friday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

    Even after he is cleared, Ware may wait a few weeks before he starts working out with the team. Given that he's about to turn 34 and is coming off an injury-plagued season, the cautious approach comes as no surprise. Speaking earlier this summer, Broncos GM John Elway admitted that Ware's lingering back injury is a concern. 2015 first-round selection Shane Ray could take on a larger role if Ware is absent/limited during the regular season.

    (Updated 07/28/2016)
    07/27/16DBAqib TalibLegNFITalib (foot) will begin training camp on the non-football injury list, Around The NFL reports.

    Talib was expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but the leg he injured a shooting incident in June appears to still be impacting him. It doesn't appear that the injury is too serious and Talib isn't expected to miss any time once the regular season rolls around.

    (Updated 07/27/2016)
    07/11/16RBDevontae BookerKneePROBABLEBooker's (knee) pass-catching ability could earn him early playing time, particularly in third-down situations, ESPN.com reports.

    Booker was taken during the fourth round this year, and despite coming off a February meniscus surgery, he's impressed with his hands during the Broncos' offseason program. Although C.J. Anderson projects as Denver's starting running back right now, Booker could push Ronnie Hillman for the backup job, which would feature third-down snaps and increase Booker's potential in PPR leagues.

    (Updated 07/22/2016)
    07/11/16QBMark SanchezThumbPROBABLESanchez opened training camp with the first-team offense, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

    While Denver's QB competition will reportedly be "wide open", the 29-year-old Sanchez should have an early edge over second-year pro Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch. All three signal-callers are expected to get work with the first-team offense during training camp, but that won't necessarily be the case in the preseason.
