Unit by Unit: Running Backs

If Travis Henry is healthy, the Denver Broncos will ride him all season. He is a powerful, low-to-the-ground runner that can make one cut and run downhill

Starter - Travis Henry, FB Kyle Johnson. Backups - Cecil Sapp, Mike Bell, Andre Hall, FB Paul Smith, FB Thump Belton, FB Troy Fleming, Selvin Young.

Henry has picked up the Broncos' zone-blocking offense fine this off-season, having played in a similar offense in Tennessee. If Henry is healthy, the Broncos will ride him all season. He is a powerful, low-to-the-ground runner that can make one cut and run downhill, much like Terrell Davis during his glory years in Denver.

Sapp has had a good off-season and could end up as Henry's backup. Sapp always produces in whatever role he's given, and the former standout college tailback is back at his old position after playing fullback the past couple years.

Bell showed flashes as a rookie and will compete to back up Henry.

Johnson is steady and the Broncos can count on him when they use two-back sets.
