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.
Callahan (foot) has an increasing likelihood of being placed on injured reserve, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Callahan (foot) is scheduled to practice Tuesday, but there remains no guarantee that he will play this season,Troy Renck of ABC Denver7 reports.
Callahan was supposed to play a big role in Denver's defensive scheme after coming over from Chicago with ex-Bears DC Vic Fangio this offseason. Unfortunately, Callahan was never able to fully shake a foot injury he originally suffered at the end of 2018, and the cornerback has yet to take the field in 2019. While it sounds like there's a chance he's won't return at any point, it'll be interesting to see how his foot responds to practice this week. Callahan's potential return would be a boost to Denver's pass coverage, especially in the slot.
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.

Callahan will have a non-surgical procedure on his foot and sit out for four more weeks, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Callahan has been afflicted by this foot injury for months now, and it appears the earliest he can return will be Week 8 versus the Colts. However, that's an optimistic estimate, and Callahan could undergo surgery if this doesn't work, according to Troy Renck of Denver 7 News. The Broncos are off to an 0-3 start and would like Callahan back to cover opposing receivers, as there's a steep dropoff in talent after Chris Harris.

This foot injury has been nagging Callahan for a while now, and this is the first time he'll be with the team to start a practice week.

Callahan missed last Sunday's contest with this injury as well. The 27-year-old missed Wednesday's practice, but he was able to get in a limited session Thursday. Callahan is expected to serve as the team's starting corner opposite Chris Harris when healthy, but if he can't suit up Sunday, either De'Vante Bausby or Isaac Yiadom would slot in.
Callahan (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
The Broncos continue to exercise caution with Callahan, who broke his foot in December and has had a couple setbacks in recovery. He'll need to practice in some fashion before Week 2's game versus the Bears, so keep an eye out for Thursday and Friday's practice report. Callahan will be the team's No. 2 corner when he's ready to return, but De'Vante Bausby and Davontae Harris will fill in for the time being.

Callahan (foot) is considered questionable for Monday's season opener versus the Raiders, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Callahan fractured his foot last season on Dec. 12. The Broncos have exercised extreme patience with his recovery in order to avoid any setbacks. After he did not play at all during the preseason, the team traded for Duke Dawson to provide more depth at corner. Callahan's status is unlikely to be determined until closer to kickoff.
The Broncos pulled the trigger on the Duke Dawson trade Friday, in part, to provide depth behind Callahan (foot), who has not played this preseason, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
The Broncos have been determined to be smart with bringing Callahan along this offseason, particularly given his existing familiarity with Vic Fangio's defense. There have been no reports of Callahan having any major setbacks in his recovery, and the Broncos reportedly coveted Dawson last draft, making the modest trade compensation worthwhile. Trading for Dawson doesn't mean that Callahan isn't ready, but it does mean that Denver will have the opportunity to ease him into action, an option that wasn't there before.
Callahan (foot) returned to practice Monday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Callahan missed practice all last week while he was nursing an injury to the same foot he fractured Dec. 12.
