The Denver Broncos closed out OTA’s for this week. Next up is the mandatory minicamp, which begins next week.
Before head coach John Fox got down to football business, he took time to offer the team’s condolences to running backs coach Eric Studesville and his family. Studesville lost both of his parents on Tuesday in motorcycle accident.
“They (Al and Jan Studesville) were tremendous supporters of Eric and us. I got to know them pretty well over the years. They’re very active and his family was here a bunch of times. So our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.”
With the somber week fading away, the Broncos will increase their workload next week during minicamp. They have the opportunity to practice twice on Tuesday and Wednesday, and once on Thursday.
“It’s a little bit more of a training camp type of mode,” Fox said. “They get prepared when we form back up in July.”
“Installation-wise, we’ve pretty much thrown everything at them over the first 10 OTAs, so we’ll just pick up and really want to just finish with next week’s mini camp, finish strong this offseason,” defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio added.
The Broncos will use their two afternoon practices as walk-throughs in order to get a better understanding of how camp will be run regarding that afternoon practice.
Call it a dry-run for the dry-run. Football season is creeping up on us.
