Montee Ball (appendectomy) to make preseason debut tonight

Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball will make his preseason debut tonight against the Houston Texans, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

After having an appendectomy on August 4th, Ball was cleared medically on Monday and participated in 11-on-11 team drills on Thursday.

Ball, the Broncos' second-round pick in 2013, got off to a relatively slow start last season: 3.26 yards per carry (68 carries for 222 yards) in first 10 games. In his final six games, however, Ball averaged 6.48 YPC (52 carries for 337 yards).

Going into the 2014 season, Ball is my seventh-ranked fantasy running back and he's currently being drafted at the top of the second round based on his ADP from Fantasy Football Calculator.

Considering Knowshon Moreno finished as a top-five scorer last season, Ball has as much upside as the featured back in the Peyton Manning-led offense.
