Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) is expected to make his preseason debut against the Texans Saturday.

Miller has been sidelined since tearing his ACL on December 22. He avoided the PUP list at the start of camp, and has been practicing full speed for the last week. He should be good to go Week 1.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis reports Montee Ball (appendectomy) will make his preseason debut against the Texans Saturday.

Ball was cleared for full participation in practice Monday, and returned to 11-on-11 drills during Thursday's practice. He was not expected to make his debut until the fourth preseason game, but recovered faster than anticipated. It's great news for fantasy drafters. We wouldn't expect Ball to handle more than a few carries, but his activity is confirmation Ball has fully recovered. He projects as the clear feature back in Denver's juggernaut attack.

Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) returned to practice Thursday.

Sanders now has a chance to suit up for Saturday night's third preseason game against the Texans. He didn't see a target while playing 21 snaps in his only preseason performance so far, the opener.

Montee Ball (appendectomy) did some 7-on-7 work with the starters Wednesday.

Ball just returned to practice Tuesday, yet is already making quick progress. With more than two weeks to go before Week 1, his status is not in doubt. We may even get a look at Ball for some limited work in the fourth preseason game.

After attending the Broncos-Texans joint practices, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora came away believing Montee Ball (appendectomy) could play in Denver's preseason finale.

Per La Canfora, Ball is "doing a little bit more each day," and may ultimately make a "rapid" return. He donned full pads on Wednesday and worked individually with Peyton Manning during one period. "We will continue to upgrade that a little bit tomorrow," said coach John Fox. Ball's ADP is early in round two.

Broncos WR/PR Jordan Norwood tore his ACL in Wednesday's joint practice with the Texans.

Norwood reportedly had a legitimate shot at making the 53-man roster as the Broncos' sixth wideout and punt returner. He caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown through two preseason games, but will now miss the year. Norwood, 28 next month, hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2012.

Montee Ball (appendectomy) returned to practice Tuesday.

The Broncos are having a non-contact practice, so it's just individual drills. But it's still a step forward for Ball. He visited his doctor on Monday and hopes to gain clearance for normal work at some point this week or early next week. Don't look for Ball to play in Denver's third preseason game. Ball should be all systems go well before the Broncos take the field Week 1 against the Colts.

Emmanuel Sanders sat out Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers due to a minor thigh injury.

Sanders did play in the preseason opener, failing to see a target on 20 snaps. But he missed some practice time leading up to that one, and sat out some more sessions last week. We should get a much better look at Sanders in Saturday night's third preseason contest.

Montee Ball (appendectomy) will visit his doctor Monday and hopes to gain clearance for practice.

Ball is exactly two weeks removed from his surgery and has suffered no setbacks. He's unlikely to take any contact this week and is not expected to play in the third preseason game, but he remains firmly on track for Week 1. Ball's ADP has dipped slightly as a result of his surgery, going from 1.11 to 2.02.

Montee Ball (appendectomy) said there's definitely a possibility he practices some this week.

Ball hasn't had any setbacks since his August 4 surgery, saying he's made good progress. A return to practice this week -- even in a limited fashion -- would be big as he attempts to get his body right for Week 1. The Broncos open up the regular season three weeks from today against the Colts.

Broncos second-round pick Cody Latimer caught a 33-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's second preseason game against the 49ers.

Running with the Broncos' twos, Latimer went up and over 49ers rookie CB Dontae Johnson for his 33-yard score in the third quarter, delivered by Brock Osweiler. It was the first reception of Latimer's pro career; he finished Denver's exhibition opener catch-less on one target. Latimer is worth a late pick in best-ball and deeper re-draft leagues, but needs one of Denver's top three receivers to miss time in order to become useful in fantasy.
Aug 17 - 7:13 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 10-of-13 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' second preseason game.

Poised and efficient, 23-year-old Osweiler is now 16-of-25 passing for 190 yards, two touchdowns, and one pick through two preseason appearances. On Sunday, he tossed a 33-yard score to Cody Latimer over the top of 49ers rookie CB Dontae Johnson. If Peyton Manning were ever injured, Osweiler would take over Denver's juggernaut offense and quite possibly flirt with QB1 fantasy stats.
Aug 17 - 6:16 PM

C.J. Anderson rushed nine times for 29 yards and touchdown in the Broncos' second preseason game Sunday.

He also caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards. Anderson mixed in with the first-team offense behind Ronnie Hillman, and handled most of the work with the twos. Through two preseason contests, Anderson has 34 yards and the score on ten carries, to go with two catches for 20 yards. If Montee Ball goes down in the regular season, Anderson and Hillman would likely share Denver's backfield.
Aug 17 - 6:11 PM

Julius Thomas caught 3-of-3 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' second preseason game Sunday.

Thomas beat 49ers S Craig Dahl for a 17-yard touchdown on a post route early in the second quarter. As the No. 2 option in Peyton Manning's offense behind only Demaryius Thomas, Julius is a value pick at his mid-third-round ADP.
Aug 17 - 5:21 PM

Ronnie Hillman started the Broncos' second preseason game on Sunday, rushing four times for 19 yards.

He caught 1-of-2 passing-game targets for six yards. Hillman has 34 yards on 10 carries through two exhibition games, and two receptions for 11 yards. C.J. Anderson mixed in with the first-team offense Sunday against San Francisco, suggesting the Broncos would use a two-back committee if Montee Ball missed regular season time. Ball (appendectomy) is due back for Week 1.
