They always say, "Next man up." But what happens when you run out of next men? The Broncos might be at that point if their COVID-19 woes get any worse.
Finally, there's good news along they injury front for the Denver Broncos.
After missing nearly 10 starters at one point during Sunday's 23-7 loss to the Ravens, the Broncos are on the mend.
By Tuesday afternoon, George Paton and Vic Fangio must narrow down the Broncos' roster from 80 players to the final 53.

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.
