 ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -Denver Broncos running back Travis Henry's hamstring injury is healing slowly and the team doesn't expect him to return to offseason workouts until next week.
Henry was hurt while running 100-yard sprints before the team's passing camp started last week and coach Mike Shanahan had hoped he'd return to drills on Tuesday.
``He can't go yet,'' Shanahan said after the workout. ``Those hamstrings, you never know how long it's going to take, so I would say that chances are he'll be ready for the June camp. He will not be ready this week.''
After three more workouts this week, the team returns for eight days of offseason drills over the first two weeks of June.
ESPN reported Tuesday that the Broncos addressed their questions in the backfield by reaching agreement with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers halfback Michael Pittman, although a Broncos spokesman said he couldn't confirm the report.
Pittman, an 11th-year pro who spent his last six seasons in Tampa, rushed for 286 yards on 68 carries and caught 26 passes for 191 yards last season, when he missed six games with a high ankle sprain.
After signing a five-year, $22.5 million free agent contract that included $12 million in guarantees, Henry had an injury-riddled season in Denver last year, when he rushed 167 times for 691 yards and four touchdowns.
He led the league in rushing after the first month of the season before leg injuries and off-the-field troubles took their toll. He spent several weeks fighting the NFL over a failed drug test that would have meant a one-year ban and never recovered from knee injuries as the Broncos missed the playoffs at 7-9.
Selvin Young, Andre Hall and rookie Ryan Torain have been getting extra carries in his absence.
Defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson (knee) and tight end Tony Scheffler (foot) also missed Tuesday's workout. Scheffler is expected to return for the team's minicamp in early July.
