by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson will earn his first career start Sunday at St. Louis, according to The Denver Post. Even though Montee Ball is returning from a groin injury that sidelined him for five games, Anderson is getting the start following his strong performance Week 10 against the Raiders.

Ball will be the No. 2 running back Week 12 and rookie Juwan Thompson will be the Broncos' No. 3 back. Running back Ronnie Hillman, who started four of the previous five games, is sidelined due to a foot injury.

Broncos RB Ball full participant in Wednesday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Broncos running back Montee Ball took what might be the final step Wednesday toward being active for the Week 11 game against St. Louis when he partcicipated fully in practice.

Ball has been sidelined since sustaining a groin injury on Oct. 5. His return has coincided with the loss of featured back replacement Ronnie Hillman to a foot injury.


Broncos RB Montee Ball expected back for Week 11


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Broncos running back Montee Ball is expected to return from injury against St. Louis in Week 11, according to the Denver Post.

Ball has been out since suffering a groin injury in Week 5. In his absence, running back Ronnie Hillman became a productive option for the Broncos.

With Hillman expected to miss at least two weeks with a midfoot sprain, Ball will compete with C.J. Anderson for carries.


Broncos running backs keep finding success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Being the running back in a Peyton Manning-led offense continues to be one of the best jobs in sports, as C.J. Anderson proved in Week 10's 41-17 win over the Raiders.

With Ronnie Hillman limited by an ankle injury, Anderson got his chance to show off in Week 10, and he put together a fine all-around performance. He rushed for 90 yards on 13 carries to lead the team, and added 73 yards on four receptions, punctuated by a 51-yard receiving touchdown in the second quarter.

Anderson entered Sunday's game with just 82 yards on 17 carries, and became the fourth Broncos running back to record double figures in Fantasy scoring. At this point, anyone the Broncos plug in there should be viewed as a must-start Fantasy option, whether it is Anderson, Montee Ball or Ronnie Hillman. Even Juwan Thompson could probably put up big numbers if given the chance.

The Broncos are going to put their running backs in position to score, and Payton Manning is going to get them involved in the passing game. Anderson's success combined with Ball's expected return clouds the short-term future, so keep an eye on the team's plans to figure out how to set your lineup for Week 11 against the Rams. 


Broncos issue injury report with just one ruled out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Linebacker Nate Irving (knee) is the lone Broncos player ruled out for the Sunday game in Oakland. Only running back Montee Ball (groin), tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder) and tight end Virgil Green (calf) are questionable.

The probables are headlined by wideout Wes Welker (back). The others are safety Quinton Carter (hamstring), linebacker Steven Johnson (ankle), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).


Broncos RB Montee Ball questionable for


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Whether Broncos running back Montee Ball returns to game action Sunday for the first time in more than a month with a groin injury is a 50/50 proposition. He has been deemed questionable for the Sunday game in Oakland.

Ball has been limited in practice throughout the week.


Broncos RB Montee Ball realizes he's no longer best of bunch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) The return to health of Broncos running back Montee Ball does not translate into his return as the featured back. And he understands that completely.

While Ball has been nursing a groin injury since Oct. 5, backfield mate Ronnie Hillman has taken the job and run with it. He has averaged 4.4 yards per carry over the past five games. Ball realizes he must now earn playing time, which is one reason he lost 12 pounds to get down to 212.

"I feel like I can hit the holes faster. I definitely love it," Ball told the Denver Post. "I was playing with that weight a little earlier, getting more bulk, but I didn't like it. I am going to stick where I am at now. You will definitely see a difference.

"(Hillman) most definitely should (be the starter). The running game has been a lot better since he's been in there. I am not going to lie to myself. When I get back, I am going to contribute as much as possible and try to get that spot back."

Ball averaged just 3.1 YPC before going down.


Broncos RB Montee Ball back at practice
