Today’s joint practice concludes training camp 2018. The Broncos and Bears will meet Saturday for the second preseason game. Vance Joseph said the starters will play one to one-and-a-half quarters in the game. (Last week, the starters played just two series. )
John Elway met the media after practice as well. The GM was asked in Colin Kaepernick would be an option for a back up quarterback. Elway answered, “Colin had a chance to be here. We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it. He had a chance to be here. He passed on it.”
Elway also said he looks at the first preseason game as a “hiccup.” He was disappointed and expects more this weekend. Elway added, “playing well is more important than starting fast”
The Broncos and Bears hold their final joint practice Thursday before Saturday’s preseason Game 2. The teams are practicing in shells today.
