  • Chargers' Bryce Callahan: Headed to LA

    Callahan agreed to a one-year deal with the Chargers on Tuesday, NFL reporter Jordan Schultz reports. Callahan has spent the last three seasons with Denver, after spending the previous four with the Bears. He appeared in 11 games in 2021, missing time with a knee injury, and totaled 29 tackles (25 solo) and four passes defensed. Callahan has crossed paths with Chargers head coach Brandon Staley before, first while they were together in Chicago and in 2019 with Denver, although Callahan missed that season with a foot injury. His familiarity with Staley's system, due to its similarities to former Bears defensive coordinator and Broncos head coach Vic Fangio's, should help Callahan acclimate to the Chargers quickly.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Taken off injured reserve

    Callahan (knee) has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to play against the Lions on Sunday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. After missing the last four games with a knee injury that looked far more gruesome at the time, Callahan has been taken off injured reserve. This is a big boost for the Broncos defense as the corner recorded four pass deflections and 21 tackles through his first eight games. Callahan's return will complement standout rookie Patrick Surtain nicely, as the duo will form a secondary that can be extremely dangerous for the remainder of the season.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Filling nickelback role

    Callahan (foot) will operate as the Broncos' primary nickelback in 2021 now that the team has added Kyle Fuller to the roster, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. With Fuller now joining Callahan in Denver's defensive backfield, coach Vic Fangio will be working with two cornerbacks from the Bears' 2018 defense -- a unit that secured first-place finishes in takeaways and scoring defense. Fuller and the newly acquired Ronald Darby are expected to step in as Denver's primary perimeter cornerbacks next season, while Callahan will be responsible for containing receivers out of the slot. Injuries have heavily impacted Callahan's availability in recent years, with the 29-year-old missing 22 of a possible 32 games the past two seasons because of foot and ankle injuries.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Handed questionable tag

    Callahan (illness) is questionable for Sunday's home game versus the Dolphins, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Callahan was unable to practice Friday after coming down with an illness that apparently isn't related to COVID-19. Playing at home this week provides Callahan a better chance to shake this sickness and play against Miami, but he could miss his second game in three weeks. If that's the case, Michael Ojemudia and Essang Bassey are expected to handle more responsibility against Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Back to full health

    Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said Thursday that Callahan (foot) is medically "ready to go," Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Callahan missed the entire 2019 campaign due to a foot injury, but he's now on track for training camp and has already resumed running at full speed. He should slot into a key role in Denver's' secondary Week 1, barring any setbacks. Behind starter A.J. Bouye, Callahan stands to compete for snaps with the likes of Isaac Yiadom, Duke Dawson and rookie Michael Ojemudia.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Hits injured reserve

    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.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: In danger of missing season

    Coach Vic Fangio said Callahan (foot) is making progress but there's a chance he doesn't play this season, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Callahan had stem cell treatment on his foot in September with an initial four- to six-week timeline for his return. Wednesday marks the early end of that projection, and the fact that Fangio didn't rule out shutting down Callahan for the season supports the notion that it will take at least a couple more weeks to get back on the field.

  • Broncos' Bryce Callahan: Still nursing injury

    Head coach Vic Fangio said Sunday that Callahan (foot) is unlikely to suit up for bonus minicamp, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Callahan came over from Chicago, where he played for Fangio while he was the defensive coordinator there. The Rice product had been nursing a broken bone in his foot that required surgery Dec. 12. This news is somewhat concerning for his recovery, considering the minicamp won't start for three more weeks. The 27-year-old was solid last season for Chicago, racking up 45 tackles (39 solo) and two sacks in 13 games while primarily manning the slot.
