Booker underwent surgery on July 28 after a pre-training camp physical revealed a wrist fracture, exacerbated by lifted weights during the team's offseason program. But a recent X-ray on his wrist "looked good" and the Broncos were aiming to get him back in the fold.
While this development certainly is an encouraging sign, Booker will first have to work on his conditioning after missing all of camp and the preseason. He admitted last week that his 2017 debut date is still to be determined.
The Broncos will continue to roll with a three-headed rushing attack consisting of C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and De'Angelo Henderson.
In other injury news, defensive lineman Jared Crick (back) and Zach Kerr (knee) are also practicing after sitting out Monday night's win over the Chargers. They appear to be trending toward suiting up in Week 2 versus Dallas.
Free safety Darian Stewart (groin), right guard Ronald Leary (concussion), and cornerback Brendan Langley (knee) are not practicing. Leary, who suffered a brain injury against Los Angeles, cannot return until he passes the NFL's concussion protocol.
