When the Denver Broncos signed free agent cornerback Bryce Callahan for a three-year, $21 million deal in March, they had probably hoped he would see the field in a real NFL game before November. It’s looking like that isn’t going to happen.
Per Mike Klis of 9News, Callahan will undergo a non-surgical procedure on the same left foot that has kept him limited all offseason. He’ll be shut down for at least four more weeks, but given how this rehab has done we might need to prepare for even longer than that.

He has yet to step on game field since his 3-yr, $21M deal w/Broncos. He had been practicing on limited basis. #9sports
The Broncos secondary has struggled in the early going as Callahan was going to be a key piece to that unit. Isaac Yiadom went in his place and struggled enough through two games to end up being benched for the most part last week in favor of AAF star De’Vante Bausby who flashed several times in his first major game action against the Green Bay Packers.
Kareem Jackson has also been moved from safety for the most part and into the slot, which has opened the door for Will Parks to get more playing time as well. These adjustments are happening in large part because of the continued issues Callahan is having with that foot.
Hopefully this non-surgical procedure will help get his recovery and rehab back on track before the season is over.
