Quote :
ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold believes fourth-round RB Devontae Booker will "push for playing time."
Despite matching the Dolphins' four-year, $18 million offer sheet for C.J. Anderson, the Broncos have re-signed Ronnie Hillman and spent a fourth-round pick on Booker, a player GM John Elway confirmed was their second-highest graded running back. Denver has never committed to Anderson as the lead back, and they have now brought in quality competition in Booker. Despite his upside, Anderson will be difficult to trust as an RB1.

Watch out CJA, and move aside Hillman.

I think Booker is immediately the best RB on DEN's roster, at least from a raw talent perspective. Hillman has always been garbage and CJ has had his moments but has been anything but consistent... Also Booker brings much more to the passing game than either CJ or Hillman, if he can learn the playbook and be proficient at pass protection, why shouldn't he be the lead back?

I agree and I think he should end up being the Broncos starting RB sooner rather than later

Got him a couple of years ago in a Devy league.

I think that's about to pay off.

Quote :
A month after being selected by the Broncos in the fourth round of this year’s draft, former Utah running back Devontae Booker said that he planned to take someone’s job in Denver.

He’s now taken the job and the jersey number.

When the Broncos finalized their 53-man roster on Saturday, fifth-year running back Ronnie Hillman was among the 22 players that were cut. Hillman wore jersey No. 23.

Booker, who is now listed as the second running back behind C.J. Anderson on the team’s depth chart, has switched to jersey No. 23. Booker wore No. 23 in college and wore No. 20 this summer and preseason.

Good call Nick on the Hillman piece at least Laughing

Profootballtalk.com reports a wrist injury could cost Devontae Booker "up to" 6-8 weeks.

It puts his Week 1 status in significant doubt, and raises the possibility Booker opens the season on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games. Booker opened camp on active/PUP, making him a reserve/PUP candidate, at least in theory. Booker shined in the first half of his rookie season, but fell flat when C.J. Anderson's year-ending knee injury thrust Booker into the Broncos' feature back role. At very least, his chances at earning early-season carries or even pushing Anderson for the starting job are now all but gone. Sixth-round pick De'Angelo Henderson is a name to keep in mind.

And:

A fracture was discovered in Devontae Booker's wrist at training camp checkups.

Booker originally experienced discomfort in the wrist at OTAs, but apparently no tests were run at the time. Per 9 News Denver's Mike Klis, Booker "could miss the first game or two of the regular season." Booker remains a good bet to make the Broncos' 53, but his injury will likely force the team to carry four tailbacks. At this point in time, those probable four would be C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles, De'Angelo Henderson, and Booker.

How does he not get that checked out after OTAs. Just dumb.
