NOTABLE STARS RETURNING FROM INJURY
Fear Not Denver, C.J. Anderson is Fine:
After leaving the weekend game with what looked like a bad injury for the running back, the Broncos reported that there was nothing major to worry about Anderson. As an affirmation, Anderson was seen running and cutting at full speed during Monday practice and has since been doing okay in training.
Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are Healed Up:
Both Freeman and Coleman have been dealing with separate hamstring injuries, but they both suited up for Monday’s practices. If called upon, both backs should thus be available to feature for the Hawks in this week’s game.
Kenny Stills is Back in Training:
After being kept out of action for most of Miami’s training camp, top deep threat Kenny Stills is back in training. He reportedly practiced with the team on Monday for the first time in training camp.
Clowney is also Back in Training:
For the first time since undergoing knee surgery, 2014 No. 1 overall pick Javedeon Clowney attended training in the Houston camp. Clowney was so happy about his return after an injury-riddled rookie season that he even begged his coach to allow him to start pass-rushing the QBs. Of course, Coach Bill O’Brien didn’t want his prized possession to get injured again, so he denied the request, stating that Clowney needs to make his transition progressively. Still, if all goes well, then we should be seeing the highly-touted sophomore alongside J.J. Watt and the scary Houston D-line.
