Coach Vic Fangio said Callahan (foot) is healthy but only working in individual drills, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. "He's ready," Fangio said. "He actually could go in this camp , but we're just letting him do individual. I just want to give him a few more weeks to feel healthy."
Callahan is essentially recovered from the broken foot he suffered in Week 14 against the Rams, but the Broncos are exercising caution. The 27-year-old shouldn't have any troubles once training camp rolls around, and he's expected to be the No. 3 cornerback in 2019.
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 just 13 games.
Expected to be hot commodity in a thin free-agent market for corners, Callahan hung around until Friday evening, potentially due to his diminutive size and recent foot surgery. He lands in Denver where he reunites with head coach Vic Fangio and defensive coordinator Ed Donatell. The former undrafted free agent has come along under Fangio and Donatell's tutelage, combining for four interceptions, 12 passes defended, three sacks, and a forced fumble over the past two seasons. Expect him to play the primarily in the slot, pushing Chris Harris, Jr. and fellow free-agent pickup Kareem Jackson -- both also good in the slot -- outside.
Callahan (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
Callahan will require surgery after breaking a bone in his foot Sunday against the Rams. The Rice product served mostly in a rotational role in Chicago's secondary and -- over 13 games -- racked up career-highs in tackles (45 total, 39 solo), sacks (two) and defensive snaps (675). Sherrick McManis and Kevin Toliver will likely fill in for Callahan for the remainder of the season.
Callahan (foot) sustained a broken bone in his left foot during Sunday's 15-6 win against the Rams, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Callahan sustained the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's game. The 27-year-old has served as a reliable rotational member of the Bears' secondary all season, and will leave a difficult hole for Sherrick McManis and Kevin Toliver to fill. A timeline for Callahan's recovery remains undisclosed, but expect him to sit out Chicago's tilt against the Packers in Week 15.
