... but the news is anything but good for the Broncos' pass catchers.
Could the Broncos' solution for the next few weeks without Jerry Jeudy be making more use of two- and three-tight end formations?
Vic Fangio trusted Teddy Bridgewater. More importantly, his gut trusted Bridgewater. And that's why the Broncos had more fourth-down conversions Sunday than they had in their first 14 games last year.
By Tuesday afternoon, George Paton and Vic Fangio must narrow down the Broncos' roster from 80 players to the final 53.
Here's who is projected to make the final roster.
"Saturday, I definitely want to be able to go out and play fast and just not think about anything,” Sutton said.
Drew Lock was electric to start Sunday's scrimmage.
Not only did he have the pass of training camp, he commanded two touchdown drives early.
Lock needed a strong day on Sunday. He delivered.
On Friday, inaccurate was the word of the day for the Broncos' quarterbacks.
One quarterback flipped that on its head in nearly the best possible way 24 hours later during Saturday's practice.
The past few practices, Drew Lock’s lost the “gunslinger” to his game, while Teddy Bridgewater has tried to shake being “Mr. Checkdown.”
Both of those were very clear during Friday’s practice.
George Paton could have an opportunity to take Denver’s tight end room to the moon and beyond in the first round if Kyle Pitts falls to No. 9.
If Pitts is available, should the Broncos take him?
In the offseason, John Elway clearly made it a top priority to give his second-year quarterback as many weapons as possible to succeed.
So just how are the young talented pieces working out midway through the season?
Here's an extensive breakdown of where each position player stands through eight games and the stats they'll finish the season with on their current pace.
In a new series at DNVR, former Denver Bronco and CU Buff Matt McChesney gets on the whiteboard to show you what exactly was the turning point for the Denver Broncos in their most recent game, good or bad. This week, Matt dives into four play that were integral to the Broncos staging their massive comeback against the Chargers. Play…
In 2019, the Broncos averaged 17.6 points per game. However, in the final five games under Lock, they averaged 21.4 points per game.
For 2020, the Broncos can expect another significant jump.
As Vic Fangio put it after practice, defensive coaches and players loved the way the scrimmage went. On the flip side, offensive players and coaches did not.
With an off day in sight, the Broncos brought the heat on Tuesday. But one side of the ball won the day.
Vic Fangio began Friday's practice by bringing his team together in a huddle. After a minute of Fangio addressing his team, players started to hoot and holler and get hyped for whatever message the coach was delivering.
The defense took that shot of energy and ran with it to start practice. The offense, however, didn't pick up on it one bit as they came out flat, sluggish and out of tune. The energy started to hit the offense as the practice went on.
In terms of Broncos' rookies, the first week of training camp has been dominated by Jerry Jeudy with a side of K.J. Hamler. That comes as no surprise as the two receivers were John Elway's first two picks in April's draft.
On Wednesday, other rookies from Elway's draft class began to make noise, earn praise and make their way up the depth chart.
The Broncos have kept Jake Butt on the team for three years with nearly nothing in return on the field. The next three weeks will be crucial in evaluating whether their low-risk, high-reward investment will have a chance to cash in.
