03/01/17RBJamaal CharlesKnee - MeniscusQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) is not participating in drills during the Broncos' OTAs, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.

Charles' sights remain set on a full return at training camp, but for now he'll be forced to watch his fellow running backs from the sidleline at OTAs. Knee injuries have plagued Charles' production throughout the past two seasons, so he'll need to prove that he's not too beat up at this point in his career. Devontae Booker and rookie De'Angelo Henderson will also battle the veteran for touches behind C.J. Anderson.

03/01/17TETravis KelceShoulderQUESTIONABLEKelce (shoulder) should be fully ready for training camp, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. "I know from a rehabilitation standpoint, he's ahead," general manager John Dorsey said. "I can't say what level he'll be at, but he'll be 100 percent for training camp. For OTAs, he may be able to walk through and do some things."

Kelce underwent shoulder surgery earlier in the offseason, but afterward, head coach Andy Reid expressed his belief that the star tight end would be ready for the start of training camp. Dorsey's comments not only affirm that notion but also suggest Kelce is in a good place in his recovery if he'll be healthy enough to join his team on the field this month, although admittedly in a very limited capacity. While Dorsey's comments also suggest Kelce could be restricted in some fashion for the entire offseason program, Kelce is a two-time All-Pro player who is already fully comfortable operating within the Chiefs' offense. A few missed reps in May and June shouldn't be any problem at all if he indeed returns in time for training camp in July.

01/28/17DBMarcus PetersFootQUESTIONABLEPeters will miss the Pro Bowl due to a minor foot injury, Terez A. Paylor of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The nature of Peters' foot injury isn't clear, but it doesn't appear like it will hold him down for long. Buffalo's Stephen Gilmore will take his place at the Pro Bowl.

01/26/17DLAllen BaileyPectoralQUESTIONABLEBailey (pectoral) is nearing a return from a torn pectoral muscle, Pete Sweeney of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Bailey played in just five games due to his torn muscle, but he may be able to return at some point during offseason workouts. He'll figure to be a backup along the defensive line when healthy in 2017.

01/26/17WRKenny CookQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs declined to renew Cook's (quadriceps) contract for the 2017 season, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Cook was an exclusive-rights free agent, so the Chiefs could have kept hold of him for cheap if they'd wanted. While it isn't clear if the status of his torn quadriceps from last summer had anything to do with his release, Cook will nonetheless have to prove he is back to full strength to land another gig.

01/26/17DLJaye HowardHipQUESTIONABLEHoward (hip) has signed with the Bears on a one-year deal.

Howard was released by the Chiefs, where he spent four seasons, in mid-April after his 2016 campaign ended early due to a hip injury. The Bears signing him to a deal implies that his rehab has been progressing as expected, with the goal being to get him back to full form by the time training camp rolls around.

01/26/17LBDerrick JohnsonAchillesQUESTIONABLEJohnson (Achilles) said Monday he'll be fully cleared by the start of training camp, ESPN's Adam Teicher reports.

Johnson's declaration comes after his 2016 campaign was ended by a ruptured Achilles suffered in Week 14. While that marked the second time in three years that Johnson sustained the same injury, his experience in rehabbing the issue has instilled confidence in his ability to made a quick recovery ahead of this season. Barring a setback, Johnson intends to be fully cleared for training camp, which would represent a considerable boost to the Chiefs' defense.

01/26/17LBJosh MaugaShoulderQUESTIONABLEMauga (shoulder) will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, BJ Kissel of chiefs.com reports.

Mauga will miss the entire 2016 season due to a labral tear. The Chiefs' veteran linebacker was expected to be a catalyst of this year's defense. Ramik Wilson will have a chance to earn a starting spot during his absence.

01/26/17RBTrey MillardKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs declined to renew Millard's (knee) contract for the 2017 season, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Millard signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs in January of 2016 but was stashed on injured reserve before the season started due to a torn ACL. When fully healthy, he should be able to help out a fullback-friendly team in training camp.

01/26/17LBDadi NicolasKneeQUESTIONABLENicolas -- who underwent surgery on his injured knee -- isn't expected to participate in any offseason workouts until training camp, Pete Sweeney of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The depth linebacker doesn't provide much other than another body on special teams, but Nicolas' spot on the roster likely won't be guaranteed heading into training camp. Assuming he can get healthy in time, he should battle for a job on the 53-man roster.
