Merely by showing up for the first day of offseason practice, Selvin Young and rookie Ryan Torain gained on Travis Henry in the competition for the No. 1 running back.
Henry didn't participate because of a hamstring injury suffered while running the 16th and final 100-yard sprint during conditioning last Friday. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said Henry will return next Tuesday, when passing camp resumes next week.
And when he does, Henry will be behind. After a fast start in 2007, when he led the league with 433 yards rushing through four games, Henry's season spiraled amid numerous injuries and off-field issues. He gave the Broncos just 258 yards rushing in their final 12 games.
