Montee Ball: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Though Ball won't need surgery to repair his strained groin, he's expected to miss a couple weeks of action, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Ball is sidelined, Ronnie Hillman is in line to head the Broncos' rushing attack, with C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson on track to work in complementary/reserve roles in the team's backfield.
According to coach John Fox, Ball is dealing with a groin strain, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Fox didn't discuss the severity of Ball's injury, NFL.com relays that there are fears that the issue is serious enough to force the running back to miss time. If that's the case, Ronnie Hillman would be in line to head the Broncos' rushing attack in Ball's absence, starting Sunday against the Jets.
Ball is feared to have suffered a major groin injury during Sunday's game versus Arizona, although an MRI scheduled for Monday should help clarify his situation, NFL.com reports.

Ball will have an MRI on his strained groin Monday, The Denver Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A league source told the Denver Post that "the initial belief is Ball will be out for a while." If that's the case, the Broncos will turn to Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson and C.J. Anderson, the last of whom was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game. After Ball left in the third quarter, Hillman got most of the work, with Thompson contributing three carries for 15 yards and a touchdown. Hillman would be most likely to get the start in Ball's stead, but he'd probably split carries with at least one of the other two guys. Thompson is easily the biggest of the bunch, which might make him the top choice for goal-line work. In any case, the extent of Ball's injury is still uncertain, with more information likely to come Monday or Tuesday. The second-year back is off to a surprisingly slow start, sitting at 55 carries for just 172 yards and a touchdown through five games. He also hasn't done much through the air, with 11 nine catches for 51 yards.
Ball left Sunday's game against the Cardinals in the third quarter with a groin injury and is considered questionable to return.

2014

2013

A second-round pick in this year's draft, Ball piled up 3,753 rushing yards and a remarkable 61 total touchdowns in his final two years at Wisconsin. The NCAA's career leader with 83 touchdowns, Ball is a decisive, downhill runner with good vision and burst at the line of scrimmage. While he may not be the fastest or biggest back, at 5-10, 214, he is plenty shifty, knows how to follow his blocks and has the strength and toughness to absorb contact and shed tacklers. Veterans Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno combined for more than 1,200 yards and eight scores on 305 carries last year for the Broncos, but with McGahee released and Moreno coming off a knee injury, the lead role in the Denver backfield is Ball's for the taking. Ronnie Hillman should also provide a change of pace as the team's speed back, but Ball could own the goal-line work and already might be a better pass protector than Hillman. In a Denver offense that scored 30.1 points per game last year, there's a lot of upside here.
