Following Denver’s 31-23 victory of Cincinnati, Broncos‘ return specialist Trindon Holliday has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, the team announced on Wednesday. Holliday (5-5, 169 lbs.), the smallest player in franchise history, is a second-year specialist who was claimed off waivers by the team in October.
Holliday’s 105-yard touchdown return against the Bengals was the longest play in franchise history and was Holliday’s first score in regular season play. This is the second time a Broncos player has won a weekly special teams award, after kicker Matt Prater was honored in Week 4.
A Broncos player has won a weekly accolade following each of Denver’s five wins this season, marking the most weekly awards won by one team this season (5). Cornerback Tracy Porter (Wk 1, Defensive), kicker Matt Prater (Wk 4, Special Teams), quarterback Peyton Manning (Wk 6, Offensive), linebacker Wesley Woodyard (Wk 8, Defensive), and Holliday (Wk 9, Special Teams) have all been honored for their efforts this season.
Fans can vote for those five players — and many more of Denver’s starters — for the 2012 Pro Bowl at NFL.com/ProBowl. Vote early and often!
Congrats to Holliday. He’s made some mistakes commonly seen from young returners, but he has a lot of potential.

The good news for Denver’s offensive line is that the injury sustained by guard Chris Kuper on Sunday is not as bad as it could have been. The bad news is that he’ll likely miss a month of football due to a severely sprained left ankle.
This is not the first time Kuper has had ankle woes, as a dislocated left ankle abruptly ended his 2011 season in January, causing him to miss...
Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback.
Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field.
Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer.
The NFL has finished with their investigations on the alleged use of the illegal sticky substance in the Monday Night game against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15.
However they were fined $20,000 for not providing the towels when asked and failing to cooperate with NFL officials.

The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday.
Not enough of a hand.
Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...

The Broncos sit at 5-3 and rank 2nd in yards per play differential and 9th in rate of sustaining drives differential with momentum on their side and they’ve done this despite one of the toughest schedules in the league thus far. From this point on, they have one of the league’s easiest schedules, with games against Tampa Bay, Carolina, San Diego...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Von Miller was such an athletic freak coming out of Texas A&M that his mentor, former Aggies coach Mike Sherman, joked he probably could have crumpled quarterbacks with one hand tied behind his back.

You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended.
He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana.

If you strictly look at records going into the matchup between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers in Week 10 of the NFL season, this looks like an incredible mismatch between a 5–3 record versus 2–6. As with many situations in football, however, the numbers don’t even begin to tell the story.Carolina has been one of the most snake bitten teams in the 2012 season, as...
The Denver Broncos have a pair of undrafted rookies making an impact, so why can't teams like the Patriots have the same success? One of the Broncos is actually a former Patriot.
