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.
Callahan (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but Broncos coach Vic Fangio relayed the cornerback will not need surgery, Denver7's Troy Renck reports.
Callahan's nagging foot injury will keep him sidelined for a fifth consecutive contest, but optimism surrounds his offseason outlook as surgery is not currently in the forecast. His 2020 campaign comes to an end with 42 tackles (36 solo), five passes defensed, two interceptions and one fumble recovery in 10 games.
Callahan (foot) is not expected to retake the field this season, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that Callahan's foot injury isn't healing as well as the team hoped, and considering that he won't be eligible to come off IR until at least Week 16, it seems probable that the veteran cornerback could simply be shut down for the year. He had 42 tackles, five defended passes, two interceptions and one fumble recovery in 10 contests.
The Broncos placed Callahan (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Callahan won't be eligible to come off IR until Week 16 at the earliest, so it remains to be seen whether he'll suit up again for the Broncos this season. For at least the next three contests, in any case, Essang Bassey and Michael Ojemudia are both candidates to handle increased defensive roles.
Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Callahan (foot) is "going to miss some time," Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
A foot injury cost Callahan the 2019 season. He appeared on the injury report last week with a foot issue but was able to suit up Sunday against the Saints. While it's unclear if it's related to his past problem, it's concerning nonetheless. Callahan can be confidently ruled out for the Week 13 matchup against the Chiefs, and it wouldn't be surprising if this was a multi-week absence.
Callahan was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a foot injury, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos' official site reports.
Callahan entered the weekend questionable due to a foot injury, and it appears that he aggravated the issue at some point Sunday. A starting cornerback, Callahan has played nearly every snap on defense this season. Essang Bassey and Michael Ojemudia should both see increases in reps with Callahan sidelined.
Callahan (foot) will be available for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Callahan was originally listed as questionable for the contest. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual responsibilities starting opposite A.J. Bouye at cornerback.
Callahan didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The 29-year-old played every defensive snap Sunday against the Dolphins, but he apparently picked up the foot injury at some point. Callahan has allowed only a 44.8 passer rating this season, per Pro Football Focus, so it would be a big loss if he doesn't improve in time for this weekend's matchup with New Orleans.
Callahan (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins.
Callahan came down with a non-COVID-related illness Friday, handing him a questionable tag entering Sunday. Having fought off the issue in time for kickoff, the former Bear readies for his ninth start of the 2020 campaign. Thus far in his first active season for the Broncos, Callahan has not surrendered a touchdown in coverage. He has also collected two interceptions while holding opponents to a sub-58 percent completion rate.
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.
Callahan (illness) was sent home Friday with a non-COVID-19 illness and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Callahan will need to feel better in a hurry in order to suit up Sunday. If he's unable to give it a go, Essang Bassey should see more snaps for a Denver cornerback corps that could also be without A.J. Bouye (hip).
Callahan (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Las Vegas.
The 29-year-old was listed as questionable for Sunday's contest, but his status never appeared in major doubt. Callahan should return to his starting role in the secondary after missing Week 9.
Callahan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but coach Vic Fangio believes the cornerback will be able to play, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Callahan practiced fully Friday after being limited earlier in the week, which bodes well for his chances of suiting up. Then again, Callahan was also expected to play last week against Atlanta before ultimately being declared inactive.
Coach Vic Fangio said he hopes Callahan (ankle) will practice this week and play Sunday against the Raiders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
The 29-year-old was considered questionable for Sunday's loss to the Falcons and was expected to play, but he ended up inactive for the contest. Callahan likely will need to put in a full practice at some point this week to avoid an injury designation for next weekend.
Callahan (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.
Coach Vic Fangio was optimistic Friday that Callahan would be ready for Sunday's cross-conference clash, but the 29-year-old cornerback may have suffered a setback in warmups. The Broncos are without fellow starting cornerback A.J. Bouye (concussion) as well, leaving Michael Ojemudia, Duke Dawson and Essang Bassey to slow down a Falcons' offense that will be without Calvin Ridley (ankle).
Callahan (ankle) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, but head coach Vic Fangio reiterated Friday that he expects Callahan to play, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.
Barring a setback in pregame warmups, Callahan should be able to tough it out. He practiced on a limited basis after missing Wednesday's practice entirely and will look to build on his solid season totals of 32 tackles and two interceptions through seven games.
Head coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that Callahan (ankle) will practice on limited basis this week but should be available to play Sunday against the Falcons, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Callahan was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice estimate, so this news is much more positive for the team. If all goes well this week, expect Callahan to handle his usual starting duties at one of the cornerback positions for Week 9. The Rice product has racked up 32 tackles (26 solo), four pass breakups and two interceptions through seven games this season.
Callahan (ankle) was listed as a nonparticipant in Wednesday's practice estimate, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Callahan missed all of last season with a foot injury and battled a wrist injury earlier this season, but this is the first time he's appearing on the injury report with an ankle injury. Whether Callahan's able to practice later this week will go a long way in determining whether this absence was precautionary or actually threatens his status for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Callahan (wrist) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, putting him on track to suit up Thursday against the Jets, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Callahan's absence Monday looks to have just been a rest day after a busy Week 3 in which he played all but two of Denver's defensive snaps. He should be good to go at the Meadowlands on a short week.
Callahan (wrist) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Callahan didn't appear injured during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Buccaneers, as he played 66 of 68 defensive snaps (97 percent) and recorded three solo tackles. It's possible the issue flared up following the game, and the DNP start to the week is a bit concerning. His status should be watched closely as the Broncos go on the road on a short week, although Thursday's matchup against the Jets is favorable regardless.
