The Broncos ended practice Thursday at 11 o’clock. Vance Joseph was pleased with the team’s tempo through the first practice.
He was also pleased with both Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch saying, “Both guys were in command of the huddle. The communication was sharp. The concepts were there. It’s tough against our DB’s, but it was really a good practice for the first time out in camp.”
2nd round pick DeMarcus Walker left practice with what Joseph called a “heat issue.” Joseph expects him to be fine and back at practice on Friday.
The Broncos will have a walk-thru session Thursday afternoon which is closed to fans. The team will return to the field on Friday morning for a practice schedule for 9:30, which fans are welcome to attend.
