Broncos Practice Report 8/1


The Denver Broncos decided to move their practice up thanks to the weather pattern in the Denver area lately. Instead of having practice Wednesday afternoon, they moved it to the morning to avoid the thunderstorms.

The change in schedule doesn’t have much of an impact on the team, according to head coach John Fox.

“Instead of lifting and meeting before practice, we’re going to lift and meet after practice,” Fox said after practice. “With there not truly being a two-a-day schedule anymore, even their recovery is not effected.”

Aside from a change in schedule, a new element was added to the Broncos camp package. The team worked on throwing in the hurry up offense today. According to various sources that were in attendance including CBS4’s Vic Lombardi, the Peyton Manning led offense was heads above the second team offense.

"One thing I noticed at practice today. There’s the PFM offense. Smooth. Crisp. Efficient. Then there’s the 2nd team offense. Slow. Confused – Vic Lombardi (Twitter)"

Eric Decker (groin strain), Ronnie Hillman (hamstring), Greg Orton (ankle), and D’Andre Goodwin (ankle) left practice today due to injury.  Orton was the only one to go into the locker room early. The rest had their reps eliminated or limited for the remainder of practice.

Quinton Carter (hamstring, knee), Orlando Franklin (concussion), and Josh Moore (hamstring) did not participate in today’s practice.
