As the Denver Broncos prepare for the third week of the preseason against the St. Louis Rams a lot has changed and a lot of differences should be seen Saturday.
The main difference is that the game is expected to look like a regular season game. Coach John Fox wants the starters to come back into the game after the half. This is the last opportunity for players to show their worth...
We’ve all seen this story, we know Decker and Thomas can make great catches from the veteran that is Peyton Manning, we know that Von Miller can make impressive tackles and make juke-moves to get to whichever player has the ball.
What we haven’t seen is a running game that doesn’t drop the ball, a defense without Miller and one that looked soft against the Rams (not the second...
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker returned to practice on a limited basis, but he's not expected to play again this preseason. Welker suffered a mild ankle sprain last week against the Seattle Seahawks, but coach John Fox doesn’t want to take any chances.
Although Wes Welker’s injury was never considered very serious it is still a relief to Bronco’s fans that he will be ready for the season opener against the Ravens on September 5th
“If we had a game tomorrow, he’d be out there,” Fox said, via Arnie Stapleton of the Associated Press. “This is preseason, we’re trying to get ready for our regular season and yet still hone...
Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe must feel like he dodged a bullet last week. After being strapped to a board and taken by ambulance to the hospital, fans and teammates geared for the worst - a career ending, perhaps even life threatening spine injury.
Less than a week ago, Denver Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe was being strapped to a stretcher before being taken from a football field in an ambulance. There was initially concern that Wolfe suffered a potentially devastating neck injury, but he was eventually cleared to return home with his teammates. Now, having survived an early-season scare, Wolfe is hoping that he'...
Denver Broncos wide receiver got slapped with a $7,875 fine for grabbing and twisting a facemask while covering on a punt return in the first quarter last Saturday at Seattle, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
It was the only fine levied from the game that Seattle controlled, winning a lopsided 40-10 (the high-low blocks that led to Derek Wolfe’s neck injury incurred no fines).
The Broncos have made it clear all along they wouldn't mind throwing the ball fewer times than in 2012 when they averaged 37 passing attempts in the regular season. It's not a stylistic issue as much as it is a realization that it would be a product of among other things an improvement in the ground game.
So if Saturday night's 27-26 victory over the St. Louis Rams truly...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball stood out for all the wrong reasons last weekend.
Denver's young running backs 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.
Hillman fumbled when he tried...
Rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree ruined Ronnie Hillman's night with a strip-and-score takeaway and kept Peyton Manning from turning all those passes into points with a big interception. Yet the St. Louis Rams' lost 27-26 at Denver on Saturday night.
Ogletree ripped the football from Hillman's arms, scooped it up and trotted 13 yards for the score one week after Hillman...

Peyton Manning wasn't in pads Wednesday when the Denver Broncos began preparations for the Washington Redskins.
After stretching with his teammates, Manning donned his helmet but was strictly an observer as backup Brock Osweiler and No. 3 quarterback Zac Dysert took snaps during the first part of practice that was open to reporters.
Manning chatted with coach John Fox and offensive...
As preseason games go, this will be one worth watching. Week No. 3. First-teamers make more than a token appearance, it's the final game before position battles are decided and, finally, you can sense the regular season is nearing.
There will be plenty of other reasons to watch when the Rams visit the Denver Broncos on Saturday in a nationally televised contest at 7 p.m. (CBS...
