Reports: Von Miller has groin injury, Lerentee McCray will undergo knee MRI

According to Jeff Legwold, linebacker Lerentee McCray will undergo an MRI for a right knee injury that may cost him "some time," whatever that means.

Von Miller sat out the Chiefs' final drive with a groin injury, and will be evaluated on Monday.

Wes Welker will not be reinstated or activated for Week 2

The league's new drug policy proposal was not ratified on Saturday due to reported unresolved issues.

As a result, Wes Welker has not yet been reinstated, and will not be active for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Denver figures to keep a roster spot open for Welker until he's reinstated.

NFLPA approves new drug policy; Wes Welker to be reinstated

The NFLPA voted on Friday to approve a new drug policy that includes HGH testing, increased penalties for drunk driving, and a higher threshold for positive marijuana tests.

Welker had been serving a four-game suspension for a positive result for amphetamines, which he'd allegedly taken while attending the Kentucky Derby.

Schefter: Wes Welker could be reinstated tonight

Well, that would explain the roster vacancy.

Broncos re-sign Nathan Palmer to practice squad

The Broncos have filled their practice squad vacancy by re-signing wideout Nathan Palmer, who was on the active roster for Week 1 (but was a game day inactive).

Oddly, they have not yet filled the opening on their 53-man roster, perhaps holding out hope for a last-minute reinstatement of Wes Welker.

But Welker cannot practice during his suspension, so we'd expect Palmer to end up back on the active roster within the next day or two.
