Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Devontae Booker has a wrist injury. He’s expected to miss up to 6-8 weeks. It’s unclear how he was injured. He’s currently expected to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. He would be able to exit PUP at any time before Week One. (Pro Football Talk)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The cause of the injury is unknown at this time. Jamaal Charles has been cleared for camp but he’s expected to be brought along slowly during August. Rookie De’Angelo Henderson is currently next on the depth chart but if the Broncos believe Booker’s injury lingers into the season, the could go after a free agent (Rashad Jennings, DeAngelo Williams) for depth.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Surgery has not been ruled out as of now. With a recovery time of 6-8 weeks, Meredith is in danger of missing the early portions of training camp. It’s a setback for the starting receiver who projects to be the Bears best option in the passing game in 2017.
