    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will miss the next 2 to 3weeks after aggravating his groin injury in Week 11, according to two league sources.

    Huddle Up: With Ronnie Hillman also likely out for the next month, it'll be the C.J. Anderson show with some Juwan Thompson sprinkled in.

  • Posted: 11/16/2014 8:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) aggravated his groin injury in Week 11 against the St. Louis Rams, and he will have an MRI Monday, Nov. 17. His injury might have been the most serious to the team's skill position players Sunday.

    Huddle Up: Ball played only briefly before re-injuring his groin. With Ronnie Hillman also out for the next few weeks, C.J. Anderson is now the Broncos feature back. Juwan Thompson moves up to the No. 2 role and should also be added in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/14/2014 4:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Ball will make his return this week but will split the workload with Week 10 standout C.J. Anderson as Ronnie Hillman sits out with a foot injury.

  • Posted: 11/12/2014 6:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 11.

    Huddle Up: Good timing for the Ronnie Hillman-less Broncos as Ball is expected to return Sunday in St. Louis after sitting out the previous five games.

  • Posted: 11/10/2014 8:08pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) is hopeful of putting in a full week of full practice, and he is poised to return to the lineup in Week 11 against the St. Louis Rams after missing five games. Ball wants to do more than just return, though; "to try and get my old job back." "It's who's healthy, No. 1 first and foremost. We've been evaluating that week to week ... we'll evaluate it again come Wednesday," head coach John Fox said. "Doesn't matter how I feel, it's how they feel ... Time heals, we'll see how they feel come Wednesday."

    Huddle Up: The timing could be ideal for Ball and the Broncos with starter Ronnie Hillman likely set to miss the next 2-3 games with a foot sprain, but Ball will have to be able to show he's ready to return in practice this week.

  • Posted: 11/7/2014 6:45pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 7, and is questionable for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Ball hasn't played since Week 5, and while he was able to get back on the practice field this week, it'll be a surprise if he's active and able to contribute Sunday in Oakland.

  • Posted: 11/5/2014 4:35pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.

    Huddle Up: Ball has been sidelined since he was injured in Week 5, and while his return is certainly drawing near, hoping for him to play this Sunday in Oakland would seem to be a little too optimistic. Whenever Ball's return comes, though, it figures to be in a change-up role behind the productive Ronnie Hillman.

  • Posted: 10/31/2014 8:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Friday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Ball will miss Sunday's game against New England. Ronnie Hillman will get the bulk of the carries versus the Patriots. Hillman is cemented as a strong RB2 in Denver's offense.

  • Posted: 10/21/2014 6:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was not at practice Tuesday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: Reports have placed Ball's likely return in Week 10 or 11, but in the meantime, Ronnie Hillman looks to be tightening his grip on the No. 1 RB role, coming off back-to-back strong performances.

  • Posted: 10/18/2014 8:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) will have a difficult time regaining the featured-back role this season after his injury. It's beat writer Mike Klis' opinion that Ball never fully recovered from his appendectomy, which could have been a precursor to his groin injury.

    Huddle Up: Ball was ineffective as the starter and Ronnie Hillman rushed for 100 yards in his first game as the No. 1 back against the Jets. It's likely the Broncos will use both running backs when Ball returns, with Hillman remaining the starter.

  • Posted: 10/17/2014 8:11pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Ronnie Hillman will get his second straight start. Hillman is coming off a 100-yard performance and is a strong RB2 against the 49ers this week.

  • Posted: 10/11/2014 9:24pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman, RB C.J. Anderson and RB Juwan Thompson (knee) will all be leaned on while RB Montee Ball (groin) is out with a groin injury, according to head coach John Fox. Anderson said he feels that the back that has the hot hand will receive a majority of the carries.

    Huddle Up: Hillman will get first crack at getting the hot hand but will have to produce in order to stay on the field. Hillman is a RB3/flex play this week but will need to prove himself to remain there going forward. Hillman is the best fantasy option this week.

  • Posted: 10/9/2014 4:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman will serve as the lead running back in RB Montee Ball's (groin) absence. 'Ronnie has played at different times, in different amounts, but when you're the starting back and running out there in pregame warm-ups as a starting back, it's a different hat that you wear,' said QB Peyton Manning. 'There's no question he has a burst that is pretty unique when he gets the ball in his hands. It's our job to give him space.'

    Huddle Up: Hillman stepped in for the injured Ball last week and led Denver RBs with 64 yards on 15 carries, but it won't be an easy first start as the Jets are allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs so far this season. Hillman must also guard against the fumbling issues which have curtailed his playing time in past seasons.

  • Posted: 10/7/2014 11:28am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) is likely to miss the next three games because the team plays those three games in a span of 12 days.

    Huddle Up: Now we have a timetable for Ball's return. Expect Ronnie Hillman to be the Broncos' primary ballcarrier, with Juwon Thompson and CJ Anderson also in the mix.

  • Posted: 10/6/2014 12:31pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) could miss multiple weeks due to a groin injury, according to an NFL source. He'll undergo an MRI Monday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Ronnie Hillman will take over as the Broncos lead back. He should be the top waiver priority this week in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/5/2014 9:55pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) suffered a groin injury in the third quarter of the Week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Early reports suggest Ball will be out for "a while." Ronnie Hillman will get the first shot to replace him. Hillman should be owned in all leagues now.

  • Posted: 9/11/2014 2:22pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball rushed for 69 yards in the team's Week 1 game, but 55 of those yards came after contact.

    Huddle Up: Ball definitely demonstrated a lot of fight and determination, but he could also use some better blocking up front as he still only averaged 2.9 yards per carry overall on the night.

  • Posted: 8/20/2014 11:11pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) continues to do more work in practice each day, but most of his work continues to be outside of the team structure. However, he was wearing pads and working individually with QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, Aug. 20, and his workload is scheduled to increase. Ball might be ready to get some action in the preseason finale.

    Huddle Up: Ball looks ready to roll for Week 1. He could actually end up being a bit of a bargain at his Round 2 ADP. Ball will see a majority of the touches in Denver's backfield this season and put up big fantasy numbers.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 5:41pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) has received full medical clearance, but did not participate in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: This counters an earlier news item which said Ball was a practice participant Tuesday, but it sounds like the Broncos are taking the cautious road with their starting RB. Don't expect to see him in a game prior to the Sept. 7 regular-season opener.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 2:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) participated in drills with a helmet on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Despite his appendectomy, Ball remains a hot commodity in fantasy drafts, and his return to the practice field two weeks after the procedure is welcome news to a number of fantasy GMs. It remains very iffy, though, that the Broncos will green light their No. 1 back to play in either of the two remaining preseason contests.

  • Posted: 8/18/2014 9:42am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is making good progress and said there is a chance he could return to practice at some point this week.

    Huddle Up: Ball's fantasy value has slipped into the second round since news of his appendix surgery broke; his return to the practice field likely vaults him back into the first round, as the Broncos have made no moves to replace or insure him other than what's currently on their roster.

  • Posted: 8/14/2014 6:56pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) was doing some jogging during practice Thursday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Ball's surgery was Aug. 4, and although not ideal for the Broncos or his fantasy owners, his next game action might not come until the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against Indy.

  • Posted: 8/9/2014 12:28pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) is in attendance at practice Saturday, Aug. 9, and said he is feeling better after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

    Huddle Up: Ball is still on pace to start Week 1 for the Broncos. He remains a first-round fantasy draft pick, despite his surgery. Ronnie Hillman has a solid lead to be Ball's backup and should be drafted as his handcuff.

  • Posted: 8/4/2014 2:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (appendix) will undergo an appendectomy Monday, Aug. 4, but is expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener against Indianapolis, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: It's a setback and something to monitor but not an injury to panic over. Ball should still be ready for the opener and his status as a RB1 in the Broncos offense is secure. This does put extra focus on the battle between Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson to be Ball's backup, however. Hillman has been having a tremendous camp and enters the preseason with a slight lead over Anderson for the No. 2 job.

  • Posted: 6/22/2014 11:55pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball appeared to show the most improvement in his game as a receiver during OTAs. He also displayed improved footwork during workouts and better positioning during pass protection.

    Huddle Up: Ball is a better pure runner than predecessor Knowshon Moreno and if he can approach Moreno's pass-catching and pass-blocking prowess after hauling in 20 receptions as a rookie last season, he'll be a fantasy beast.

  • Posted: 6/10/2014 7:19pm ET

    The Denver Broncos will stick with RBs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman for now, according to general manager John Elway.

    Huddle Up: 382 of Ball's 559 rushing yards came during the second half of last season, and he's primed to take a huge fantasy leap with the Broncos electing to let Knowshon Moreno -- fantasy's fifth-ranked RB in 2013 -- walk away rather cheaply during free agency.

  • Posted: 5/2/2014 12:46am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball said he knows the team will not hand the starting job to him and that he will have to earn it during practice. 'I know for a fact they're not going to hand it to me, they're going to make sure we all get our opportunities throughout camp and throughout OTAs -- but it's going to be who's the most productive,' Ball said. 'But for me, my mentality is that it is my job.'

    Huddle Up: With fumble-prone Ronnie Hillman and 2013 rookie free-agent C.J. Anderson currently the only challengers on the Broncos' roster, it's clearly Ball's job to lose and expect the 2013 2nd-round pick to come off the board early in fantasy drafts this summer in anticipation of some monster numbers in the team's potent attack.

  • Posted: 4/16/2014 11:02am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he believes RB Montee Ball is ready to be a starting running back.

    Huddle Up: The Denver offense runs through Peyton, and if he's ready to hand off to Ball that's good news for Montee's fantasy prospects.

  • Posted: 2/13/2014 8:48pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball said he wants to start next season and receive most of the carries. He said he will believe he will have a good offseason and perform better next season.

    Huddle Up: With Knowshon Moreno a free agent, Ball has a good shot to get his wish. Ball started slow in his rookie season, but was nearly getting 50 percent of the touches in many late-season contests.

  • Posted: 11/28/2013 11:18am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball took the first-team reps in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: So long as Ball hangs onto the... uh... ball, he's in line for at minimum backup duties behind Knowshon Moreno. And if Moreno is limited at all by his foot injury, Ball could be a significant fantasy contributor--both this week and the rest of the season.
