Broncos RB C.J. Anderson excited for Gary Kubiak's offense
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/20/15) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson, who scored 10 touchdowns from Week 10 onward, said he's excited about the zone-blocking scheme new coach Gary Kubiak is bringing, reports the Denver Post. The paper notes that in Kubiak's 11 seasons as an assistant in Denver, a Broncos rusher went over 1,000 yards 10 times.
"I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished," Anderson said of Kubiak. "One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It's always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can't wait to get started working with him."
Anderson will enter next season as the team's No. 1 back, though he'll have to fight off challenges from Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Anderson averaged 4.7 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per reception and became the ninth Broncos running back to make the Pro Bowl.
Peyton Manning, Emmanuel Sanders cleared to play for Broncos
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) The Broncos will have both Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders Week 17 against the Raiders.
Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.
The team will also have nearly all of their probable players. That means C.J. Anderson, Lamin Barrow, David Bruton Jr., Ryan Clady, Chris Clark, Ronnie Hillman, Will Montgomery, Manny Ramirez, Jacob Tamme, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Kayvon Webster and Derek Wolfe will all attempt to play.

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman practices in full Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman was able to practice in full Wednesday for the first time since suffering a left foot injury on Nov. 9, ESPN.com reports.
"We've had a chance to watch him all week, participate and he's obviously further ahead than he was this time a week ago," head coach John Fox said after Wednesday's practice. "And the fact we're on grass, not on Astroturf, lot of variables, but I like what I see."
Hillman has been able to practice in a limited fashion during the last two weeks but hasn't been active on gameday since the injury occured. The Broncos are a 14-point favorite at home against the Raiders in Week 17.
RB Ronnie Hillman inactive as C.J. Anderson starts again
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/22/14) Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman, who was questionable with a foot injury, is inactive at Cincinnati and will miss his sixth straight game. Running back C.J. Anderson, who was probable with an ankle injury, is active and will get another start.
Anderson has scored five touchdowns in the past four games while receiving at least 21 touches in each. Juwan Thompson (knee, ankle) also is active after being listed as questionable and will back up Anderson.
|Ronnie Hillman has a chance to be the No. 2 running back for the Broncos this season behind starter Montee Ball. He is expected to compete with C.J. Anderson for that job, and Hillman could be worth a late-round flier if he's second on the depth chart. Hillman was expected to have a prominent role in Denver in 2013, but fumble problems in the preseason dropped him to fourth on the depth chart behind Knowshon Moreno, Ball and Anderson. Hillman finished the season with 55 carries for 218 yards and one touchdown and 12 catches for 119 yards, and he was inactive for seven games. Keep an eye on what the Broncos do on the depth chart behind Ball, and if Hillman ends up second then he's worth handcuffing to Ball or drafting on his own with a late-round pick.
