Family first, football second.
It’s been reported that rookie tackle Orland0 Franklin has been excused from this afternoon’s practice to deal with a family emergency.
After checking Franklin’s Twitter page, we’ve found out that his 20-year-old brother has died.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Franklin and his family.
Franklin was drafted out of Miami (FL) in the second round. He has started all four games with the Broncos at right tackle.
