CBS4 Broncos Notebook: Aug. 17, 2017

Paxton Lynch had arguably his best practice of this training camp, and maybe one of his best days since joining the Broncos. Lynch was unofficially 12-12 during team and 7 on 7 drills, with several highlight reel throws.

Vance Joseph: “Very impressed. His best day? I’m not sure. He made three or four big time throws today. He looked relaxed. Hopefully that carries over to Saturday.”

Demaryius Thomas: “It was one of his best days. We were just talking about it not too long ago. That’s good for him. It’ll give him a little confidence and maybe he can be himself more often. You saw him smiling and everything, so that was good.”

There were also three fights during the joint practice, two involving the Broncos offense and 49ers defense, and one involving the Broncos defense and 49ers offense.

Thomas: “It’s football (laughing). We’re two different teams, no real refs. We can’t get kicked out. You know you’re competing. Everybody is trying to get a job. You have to expect it sometimes. It happens. As long as nobody got hurt.”

Aqib Talib: “Just a little wrestling match. It wasn’t anything major. I’ve been in real fights, that was nothing.”

Chris Harris: “I guess it was a little more chippy. We wanted to bring more effort today and I was able to make a play and Justin [Simmons] picked it. Aqib [Talib], he blocked the intended receiver and then [the receiver] tackled him. It was a pretty dirty move.”

Injury update: DeMarcus Walker will not play Saturday with a hip injury, Vance Joseph says he back at practice next week.

A.J. Derby has a lower back contusion; Brandon Marshall has a rib contusion. They could play Saturday, same for Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer.

John Elway spoke after practice and was asked about player protests:

On players protesting the National Anthem
“We have not had a conversation with them and I think that my stance—I think everybody has the right to do what they wish to do and their beliefs are their beliefs. That’s why we live in this country and they have the right to display whatever they wish to display. I think one thing that where we stand and I can stand with the Broncos is that you know what, that’s OK, we’ll respect that and whatever you want to do is fine with us. But the bottom line is, that can’t get in the way of our main goal and that is to compete for World Championships. I just don’t want that pulling away from our team. Sometimes that can pull away because obviously it gets a lot of attention. Therefore, the only thing I would say to our players is make sure it’s not hurting your teammates, right? Because if the questions and everything the tenor changes of what’s going on in these interviews and now you’re not talking about our next opponent but talking about what’s going on out in the world. That’s not the best thing for our football team. My only advice—we tell our players, I respect where you stand, just when you’re doing anything just understand what it’s doing to the football team because I want all of these guys to understand that we’re football first and we want to win football games. If we do that, everything’s going to be fine. Again, with that being said, I still respect the fact that they have the right to do what they wish to do, but I just hope when they do those types of things and what they take in mind is that they think about their teammates first.”

On ILB Brandon Marshall making a difference in the community
“Yes, he really did. Brandon made a point last year, but he carried it forward. He just didn’t make a stand on the field before the games, he actually went out in the community and did something and talked to different people. He went and talked to law enforcement and got involved in the community. I was proud of Brandon in not only did he show his support for what it was last year, but also he went out and did something in the community.”

The Broncos and 49ers wearing helmets and shoulder pads for day 2 of the joint practices.

Things got a bit heated between the Broncos offense and 49ers defense during a red zone drill. Sides had to be separated twice and then coaches huddled their teams. On the opposite field something similar happened between Bronco defense and 49ers offense.
