Broncos heap praise on former rugby star Jarryd Hayne

It's no surprise Jarryd Hayne has earned praise for his play in the preseason. He's second in the league in rushing yards (117) behind only Denver's Ronnie Hillman (120) after two games. Hayne has also totaled 108 yards on five punt returns (21.6 yards per punt). There's no question he's looked like one of the best players on the 49ers roster. The Broncos got their first look...

Bye, Bye Ball: Ronnie Hillman runs up to No. 2 on Denver Broncos depth chart

  Monte Ball, we hardly knew ye. OK, it’s not like the Denver Broncos cut their former second round draft pick, but he’s slipped from starter last season to No. 3 on the depth chart now. That slippage hasn’t been all Ball’s fault; after starting three games in 2014, his torn groin sidelined him and at the same time, C.J. Anderson took off. Anderson exploded as the Broncos’...

Gary Kubiak says RB Ronnie Hillman moving up depth chart

Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman figured to be a spare part in the new ground game coach Gary Kubiak wants to run, but so far in training camp, all he has done is move up the depth chart. Hillman's skill set is very different from C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball, and he's showing the coaching staff that he has plenty to offer. "He's moved himself up. He's had a really...

Takeaways from the 14-10 Denver Broncos Preseason Victory

All signs are pointing to the “Orange Crush”, a nickname given to the Denver Broncos 3-4 defense back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, making a comeback. This defense was lead by linebackers Randy Gradishar and Tom Jackson.

MHS Rapid React: The rest of the story in Houston

Beyond Peyton Manning’s debut and the defense’s domination, there were several other important storylines to follow in the Broncos’ second preseason game. Among them, none loomed larger than the continued development of backup quarterback Brock Osweiler. It was a mixed night for the 6-foot-8 Osweiler, who had a 57-yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell, but was victim of a 69...

Ronnie Hillman says he has a chip on his shoulder

On Wednesday, James Merilatt noted on Mile High Sports AM 1340 that all of the Broncos running backs can be good in Gary Kubiak’s offense, but only one can be great. Ronnie Hillman joined Gil Whiteley on Thursday following the last official practice of Broncos training camp and said the offense is built to get guys like him downfield. Hillman was quick to give credit to the offensive...

Ronnie Hillman rocked a crazy mouthpiece in Broncos' preseason opener

Ronnie Hillman is a scary running back in the open field. The Broncos ballcarrier gets even scarier with mouthpieces like this: There's more where that came from. Hillman told the Denver Post's Troy Renck he's got "about 50" unique mouthpieces with that Jaws-like feel. He'll keep wearing them as he strives to take a bite out of starter C.J. Anderson's workload. and with stats like...

Denver Broncos position preview: running backs

Last year many would have looked at the Denver Broncos running backs and said it was a weakness to the team. Montee Ball was struggling, Ronnie Hillman was being questioned because of his size, and C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson were just names buried on the depth chart. But by the end, through a Montee Ball injury and a slew of speculation, the running backs ended the year with...

Ronnie Hillman isn’t getting the credit he deserves

Pop quiz hotshot. Which Broncos running back had more 100-yard games in 2014, Ronnie Hillman or C.J. Anderson? Well, you’ve read the headline of this story, so you’re probably going to guess Hillman even though your gut wants to say Anderson. Both instincts would be wrong. Because both backs had two 100-yard games in 2014. Surprised? Adam Kinney of the BSN Denver Sports Desk...

Gary Kubiak wants to have a ‘bell cow’ running back
