| Ronnie Hillman set to return, role unclear -- Fri Dec 26 8:00 pm --|
Listed as Probable
|Sunday also figures to mark the return of running back Ronnie Hillman. He practiced fully for the first time this week since suffering a foot injury on Nov. 9 at Oakland. He is probable, clearing the way for him to complement C.J. Anderson. (Denver Post)|
FF Today's Take: Hillman is likely to backup to Anderson but how much of a role he will have is unclear. He could potentially take enough carries away to make Anderson more of an RB2 than RB1.
| Trio of Broncos return to practice -- Thu Dec 11 3:00 pm --|
D. Thomas, Anderson and Welker all battling ankle injuries

FF Today's Take: Thomas' lack of involvement last week was curious and Anderson made the comment after the Broncos' win over the Bills that his ankle was bothering him, perhaps suggesting that Thomas' ankle was in worse shape than Anderson's. Ronnie Hillman also returned to practice on Thursday, although his Week 15 availability will probably limited at best. Anderson's owners should be able to breathe easy for this week at least, although it entirely possible that he has done enough in the coaches' minds to remain the featured back.
| Several notable Denver players miss practice -- Wed Dec 10 5:20 pm --|
Julius Thomas limited
|ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach John Fox had to take a deep breath after his 47-second recitation of an injury report that included 16 names, eight of whom did not practice Wednesday, with six others working on a limited basis. Headlining the eight players who did not practice were running back C.J. Anderson and wide receivers Wes Welker -- who missed last Wednesday's work -- and Demaryius Thomas, who played Sunday after suffering an ankle bruise when he was stepped on during practice Dec. 3.
Joining Anderson, Welker and Thomas in missing practice were running back Montee Ball (groin), and tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs). Limited participants: running backs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Juwan Thompson (knee), and tight end Julius Thomas (ankle). Thomas said this has been "a much better week for me" than recent weeks, in which he also worked on a limited basis but did not play in the game.
FF Today's Take: Fantasy owners of Denver's players will need to pay attention to the practice reports over the next couple of days. Some players, like Demaryius Thomas, would have suited up if needed but needed an extra day of rest. As the week progress, the injury picture in Denver should start to take form. Additionally, the running game could become muddled very quickly depending on who is healthy enough to play this weekend.
