The CBS4 Sports team is live on Facebook at 2 p.m. each afternoon from Broncos training camp. Here’s Thursday’s recap:
Post-practice head coach notes:
Vance Joseph said today was a scheduled rest day for some of the veterans (Talib, Thomas, Ward, Davis, etc) and that another group of veterans (Harris, Sanders, Marshall, Wolfe, etc) will get tomorrow off. Jospeh said he split up the group be he didn’t want them all to be off the same day.
Saturday will be a scrimmage style practice for the Broncos. Joseph said when you put a “scrimmage” on the schedule it forces guys to be at their best. Joseph says it will be about 36-40 plays with roughly 12 plays for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams, and that Lynch/Siemian will go 6 and 6 each with the 1’s and 2’s.
Joseph adamantly shot down rumors that a QB decision has already been made.
Jospeh said rookie Carlos Henderson has improved the last few days, as he’s getting in better shape and adjusting to the NFL. Joseph also said DeMarcus Walker is making progress as they continue to work him with the outside linebacker group.
Jamaal Charles took a few reps during team drills today, but Joseph said they will continue to play it safe with him.
A cool morning, and a crowded fan hill for day 7 of Broncos Camp.
The team is once again in full pads. The QBs have had their worst days during the full pads practices, although the Broncos have run the ball well recently.
Looks like a rest day for some players. Demaryius Thomas, Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward, Todd Davis, Virgil Green and Domata Peko all not practicing today.
Ronald Leary is practicing today after a couple of days off.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is here and will hold a fan forum later today.
