The Denver Broncos second day of training camp is in the books.  See what the good, the bad, and the ugly were here, including a QB update…

Friday, the Denver Broncos hosted their second training camp practice of the young season.  Once again, it was a fast-paced, short practice, running approximately 100 minutes.

A big takeaway through the first two days is that new head coach Vance Joseph believes in quality over quantity. Friday saw another sharp day of practice for both sides of the ball in the abbreviated practice, which is what Joseph wants to see with these shorter sessions.

The offense practiced a lot more in between the 20’s after the focus was primarily red zone during Thursday’s session.

For the second day in the row, the Broncos practiced with no pads on. Coach Joseph acknowledged Thursday that the real work doesn’t begin until the pads come on, but that didn’t stop the Broncos from having a high-intensity workout Friday, before the shells come on tomorrow.

Coach Joseph said to expect a more physical practice tomorrow, and then will have a fully-padded practice for the first time on Sunday. Despite the lack of pads, camp saw its first skirmish of the year as Demaryius Thomas, frustrated with Chris Harris threw a ball at Harris prompting some shoving and grabbing of facemasks back and forth.

Camp figures to get even more heated over the next few days as the physicality rises, and tempers flare.  Lets get into the good, the bad and the ugly from Friday’s session:
