Doug Martin took to his Twitter account on Monday to confirm he has been medically cleared from the shoulder injury and subsequent surgery which wiped out the last nine games of his 2013 season.
Even without the injury last season, I would not like him for the 2014 season because of the coaching change. New coach Lovie Smith and offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford are not the types who establish a solid running game. It's good to hear his recovery was smooth and is ready to go for offseason work-outs. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Joffrey Lauvergne practiced in full Thursday.
Lauvergne has missed the last 12 games due to a back injury but was back practicing in full on Thursday. It's a great sign for the second year pro who played well when he was healthy. He started the three games he played so we will wait and see if that's what Denver has in store for him when he returns to the lineup. Analysis: James Grande
Johnny Manziel was demoted because he lied about were he was.
When video surfaced of Manziel out partying, you just knew that head coach Mike Pettine had enough of this far-too scrutinized situation. Manziel has been a veritable nightmare for the coaches and continues to show a complete lack of maturity. Josh McCown will get the start in Week 12 and, barring injury, is likely the full-time starter moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender
