Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball returned -- briefly -- to the practice field Tuesday, but the Broncos had enough concerns about their overall depth at running back to tweak the roster.

Ball, who suffered a right groin injury in the Broncos’ Oct. 5 win over the Arizona Cardinals, was in a jersey and on the practice field during the open period of practice for the first time since the injury. Ball went through the pre-practice stretching with the team and then went to work with the strength and conditioning coaches.

The Broncos have planned for Ball to miss at least three weeks with the injury -- and Thursday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers will be the third game Ball has missed -- so they promoted running back Kapri Bibbs from their practice squad, even as some teams in the league had started to circle the undrafted rookie with interest in signing him.

Broncos Beat: Montee Ball's injuries could keep him from RB1 job

Saturday, October 18, 2014, 3:26pm

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Bronco's RB Montee Ball wasn't quite recovered from his appendectomy and now his groin strain means it will make it difficult for him to regain his featured-back role this year.

But it's possible for the Broncos to have a solid running game with Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson. Maybe not great. But the great part of this offense is taken care of.

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like Hillman will get his chances as the RB1, but the mailbag also talked about Thompson and how impressive he's looked. This obviously isn't good news for Ball owners who invested a lot in him this year. If you can afford to hold on to him, and hope Hillman and company don't light it up in the running game, it's possible we haven't heard the last from Ball. But the author doesn't seem optimistic on him recovering from the injuries enough to carry a big workload.

49ers TE Vernon Davis feeling 'much better' heading into Week 7

49ers - [Full Article]

49ers tight end Vernon Davis said he chose to play on Monday night in St. Louis and that he felt poorly during the game. How does number 85 feel entering Sunday night? "Much better," he said. "But it's pretty brutal on the body. It's a quick turnaround, so you have to on your game mentally."

Fantasy Impact:

Davis is a better play this week due to his improved health and a matchup with the Broncos, who may jump out to a lead and force more pass attempts by the 49ers.
