Montee Ball got most of the work Monday with Denver’s starters for the first time all summer.
Utilizing an up-tempo offense, Peyton Manning & Co. were virtually unstoppable against the Rams’ starting defense. That is, until the Broncos stopped themselves by turning the ball over four times.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed 25 of 34 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown, but there were some key mistakes for the first team offense in the Broncos 27-26 win Saturday night.
Denver’s young running backs Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball want to atone for their big blunders when the Broncos host the St. Louis Rams on Saturday night in what’s essentially the final dress rehearsal for the regular season.
An undrafted college free agent has made Denver’s Week 1 roster in each of the last nine seasons. C.J. Anderson aims to keep that streak going.
There’s the man who isn’t big enough, the former first-round draft pick who hasn’t lived up to his potential and the record-setting college back brought in to replace them both.
The Denver Broncos released their first training camp depth chart this fall on Sunday.
Willis McGahee knew when he showed up at minicamp this week that he faced long odds of keeping his starting job since the Denver Broncos had used a high draft pick to select a running back for the second straight season.
Willis McGahee skipped each of the Broncos’ 10 “voluntary” practices over the last month but showed up for the start of the team’s three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday.
Willis McGahee apparently is counting on history repeating itself. The grizzled running back skipped some of last year’s offseason workouts, then showed up at the mandatory minicamp and handily won the starting job.
