Q: I was wondering about Mario Fannin. It seems like there was talk of him being one of the best backs in camp last year for his tough running. I know he got injured and missed the season last year and I believe he has a little bit of an issue staying healthy. But do you think the Broncos feel they have a possible wild card at the running back position if this guy can stay healthy this year? It made me wonder when they went after Ronnie Hillman.
A: Bud, Fannin was certainly one of the most intriguing rookies in last year's training camp given he is big (5-foot-10 3/8, 231 pounds) and fast (he ran 4.37 hand-timed in the 40-yard dash at the scouting combine in 2011).
But he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee last summer and spent the 2011 season on injured reserve following his surgery.
