Michael Spencer and Mark Haas are live on Facebook at 2 p.m. each afternoon from Broncos training camp. Here’s Friday’s check on practice:
An up and down day for both Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian as both QBs made some big plays, but also made some mistakes. Vance Joseph said he likes how the offense has been in attack mode, but didn’t give an edge to either QB.
For the 2nd day in the row, the Broncos practiced for just 90 minutes (about an hour less than on the posted schedule). Joseph said the practices will get longer as camp goes, but he wants to ease guys into things.
Players said they liked how the practices have been high intensity but to the point.
Joseph said it’s too early to see who will emerge as the 3rd wide receiver, but that Bennie Fowler has been getting the most 1st team reps.
Running back De’Angelo Henderson had some reps with the 1st team today, now that Devontae Booker is out for 4-6 weeks. Joseph says it is an open competition still.
Full attendance and no injuries at practice today.
Today was Paxton Lynch’s day to get reps with the first team. Lynch and Siemian are expected to split reps throughout the day.
The offensive line alignment included Garett Bolles getting reps with the first team in the early portion of practice, although during the early team drills Ty Sambrillo worked with the ones as well.
Von Miller spent the pre-practice portion of the day returning punts off a machine. (Don’t expect Von to compete for this job, but it did get the crowd at Broncos Headquarters excited)
Derek Wolfe was back at practice today. Wolfe missed yesterday’s morning session with an illness, but joined the team for the Thursday afternoon walk through session.
New running back Stevan Ridley wore number 47 yesterday after signing with the team, but was in number 4 this morning.
