    Sucks for Booker but an encouraging bit about CJ Anderson being in great shape.

    That's a blow to the RB stable. More touches for CJ and Jamaal might be a bad thing considering their injury history.

      Could also mean a lot more touches for Henderson which he was one I was interested to see.

      Ann's who knows maybe we give Andy Janovich some time at running back also to see how he can step in outside just being a lead blocker.



      Slightly off the topic but I was talking with a co-worker but the PUP opens a roster space correct? It was the only thing that makes sense because if they come off before the season starts they don't have to wait, so we assumed the only advantage had to be an open roster spot. And this was yesterday because he is a colts fan and Hooker tweked his hammy and got put on the PUP which wouldn't make sense for anything other than a roster spot.

        So from some research PUP is divided into two sections once designated to a player: active and reserve. So if a player is placed on PUP/active it is because he is unable to start training camp. At any point he is medically cleared, he can take to the field. I believe this takes up a roster spot. Once he takes to the field he is not eligible to be placed on PUP/reserve. If the player has not been able to practice by the start of the season, he is moved to PUP/reserve.

        For PUP/reserve the player must not practice or else he is taken off this list and listed as active. Once the player is placed in reserve PUP he is taken off the roster and will not count towards the 90/75/53 limit. The player then has a window from the first day after week 6 until the first day after week 11 to make the team roster. If he fails to make the roster he must be placed in season ending IR or released from the team.

              ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The pain in Denver Broncos running back Devontae Booker's left wrist just wouldn’t go away and when he arrived Wednesday for his customary pre-training camp physical an X-ray revealed the problem.

              Booker, who was set to compete for the No. 1 running back job as training camp opened, has a wrist fracture and will now have surgery Friday to insert two screws to aid the healing. He is expected to miss six weeks.

              After Thursday’s practice, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Booker told the team's training staff the pain in his wrist wouldn’t go away during the players' time off between minicamp and training camp, particularly when he tried to train.

              “It was a small injury, it was a little sore, it wasn’t serious," Joseph said. “So he went home for the summer and had trouble bench pressing. It was really sore when he braced the bar. Again thought nothing of it, and then he was having his camp physical [Wednesday] and it was still a little sore ... so we X-rayed it and it was a wrist fracture."

              Because he hasn’t participated in a training camp practice, Booker was formally designated as physically unable to perform (PUP).

              “He could play with this, but the concern is his long-term-health," Joseph said. “... I feel bad for Book because he’s put so much work in and he’s ready to make a push."
              Booker had been told he had earned work with the first-team offense when camp opened. Asked earlier Wednesday about the rotation at running back when practiced opened Thursday, Joseph had said C.J. Anderson and Booker would split the carries with both the first- and second-team offenses. Then asked if that meant Booker would get some carries with the starting offense, Joseph quickly replied: “Absolutely, he’s earned that."

              On Thursday, Anderson took most of the work with the starters -- the Broncos spent the day in red-zone work in team drills -- as the Broncos plan to regulate how much work Jamaal Charles gets in practice throughout training camp. Charles, who signed a one-year deal with the Broncos in free agency, had played in eight games in the last two seasons combined because of knee troubles.

              Joseph said “nothing has changed" in the battle for running back spots given that Booker is expected back just before the regular season. Bernard Pierce, Juwan Thompson and rookie De'Angelo Henderson will split carries behind Anderson.
