GM John Elway indicated the Broncos "are hoping" Callahan (foot) will be ready to go this year, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Callahan was a prized free-agent addition last offseason but ultimately missed the entire year due to a foot injury. Elway's comments essentially reiterate what head coach Vic Fangio stated last month. The 28-year-old recently restructured his contract and will make $5 million in 2020 with another $2 million worth of incentives.
Callahan (foot) agreed to restructure his contract, freeing up $1.8 million of cap space for the Broncos in 2020, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Callahan will make $5 million in 2020 with the opportunity to make another $2 million worth of incentives. The 28-year-old was a prized free-agent addition from the Bears last offseason, but he missed all of 2019 due to a foot injury. Head coach Vic Fangio had previously stated that Callahan's recovering well from foot surgery, but the cornerback still doesn't have a timetable to return to football activities.
Head coach Vic Fangio said Callahan's recovering well from foot surgery, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Fangio -- who coached Callahan in Chicago in 2018 before accepting the head coaching gig in Denver for 2019 -- relayed that the cornerback is progressing "much better" from his second foot surgery. The 28-year-old Callahan didn't play at all last season due to complications from his first surgery, but it appears those concerns are being cleared up, although there's no set timeline for him to return to football activities.
The Broncos will place Callahan (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Callahan (foot) resumed practicing Nov. 12 and appeared to be nearing a return to full health, but the screw in his foot got bent thus requiring him to undergo surgery in the near future, according to Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com. The 28-year-old's 2019 campaign will conclude without taking a single snap. On a brighter note for the Broncos, Callahan's placement on IR opens up a spot for Tim Patrick (hand) to return to the 53-man roster.
Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that "it's looking more and more" likely that Callahan (foot) will be placed on injured reserve, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Callahan is nursing a foot injury he initially suffered at the end of the 2018 season. The 28-year-old returned to the practice field Tuesday, his first participation of the season, but he then suffered a setback related to soreness in his foot. It's looking increasingly probable that Callahan won't take the field at any point in 2019, though he'll retain at least a chance to play until such time as the Broncos officially place him on injured reserve.
