Broncos coach Vic Fangio doesn't sound optimistic about cornerback Bryce Callahan's foot injury


Ex-Bears cornerback Bryce Callahan’s status for Sunday afternoon's game in Denver is seemingly in question, as Callahan continues to deal with a foot injury that kept him out of Week 1’s loss. 

“It’s a concern,” Fangio said while talking to Broncos’ media. “He didn’t have a setback this week. He’s just not ready yet.”

Callahan signed a three-year, $21 million contract this offseason, following Fangio to the Broncos after spending the previous four seasons in Chicago. While he’s been considered one of the premier nickel cornerbacks in football when he plays, injuries have plagued the early stages of his career. He’s yet to play in all 16 games of a season, though he did see action in a career-best 13 games last season before he was put on IR with a broken foot. 

While he was listed as questionable in Week 1, reports out of Denver suggest that GM John Elway is actively looking for cornerback help – something that doesn’t bode well for Callahan’s chances. 

In other injury news, Broncos’ right tackle Ja'Wuan James will most likely miss Sunday’s game as well: 

Here’s the play where James apparently hurt himself: 

Wednesday is the first day that NFL teams are required to issue injury reports, so we'll know more about Callahan's status later today.
