With seven tailbacks ending up on the injured reserve last season, the Denver Broncos have several tailbacks competing for the position in camp.

Peyton Hillis was one of those injured tailbacks, suffering a torn hamstring. He is counting on getting the ball plenty next season.

He'll be competing for a spot in the backfield with newly signed free agents Correll Buckhalter, J.J. Arrington and LaMont Jordan, along with holdovers Selvin Young and Ryan Torain, both of whom are still recovering from injuries from last year.
