The Denver Broncos are playing it safe with starting right guard Chris Kuper. The seventh-year player, who suffered a gruesome ankle injury during last year’s regular season finale, has steadily seen his workload increase in camp, but the Broncos still will not risk playing him this Thursday.

Kuper told Darren McKee of 104.3 The Fan in Denver that he will travel with the team, but he will be inactive for Thursday’s preseason premiere against the Chicago Bears.

D.J. Williams, who has not been regularly participating in team drills with a six-game suspension looming, will also travel with the team. No word on whether he’ll play.

Elway: Peyton has to win 2 more Super Bowls to be the best ever

I have always been a big John Elway fan. I felt, even before he won two Super Bowls in his last two seasons in the NFL, that he was one of the greatest ever. I still feel that he’s top five. The rings were just extra on a brilliant career. He didn’t need them. Unfortunately, [...]

Drama comes full circle Broncos vs Bears

Tonight when the Denver Broncos play the Chicago Bears, the drama that started 3 years ago comes full circle. See for me, looking back to the start of the 2009 NFL season was a bad one. Bronco fans had just lost our future Hall of Fame coach and the new guy somehow chased our Pro-Bowl QB out of town. But little did we know how much drama would follow and where it would lead.
