We typically break a game into three phases—first, second, third phase. And then special…
The Denver Broncos have not lacked big-name pass rushers over the last few years. Just in the past three years, the Broncos have had Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Randy Gregory, Baron Browning and now Frank Clark on their roster. Yet the big-time production has not followed. Will this year be different for Vance Joseph’s group? Will Sean Payton’s offense allow the pass rush to pin their ears back finally? If so, who will lead the team in sacks?
On Thursday, the Denver Broncos made a big-time addition to their pass rush by signing former Kansas City Chiefs’ edge rusher Frank Clark. It appears the signing is in reaction to Baron Browning’s offseason surgery that could sideline him longer than initially expected. Will Clark be Vance Joseph’s starting linebacker alongside Randy Gregory? What are the expectations for Clark this year? Additionally, the Broncos are being connected to Dalvin Cook, who is expected to be officially released from the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. How Sean Payton utilize Cook? What would this mean for Javonte Williams and Samaje Perine?

Help appears to be on the way for Denver.
Another week, another batch of injuries for the 2-5 Broncos to deal with. This week, however, there was at least a dash of potential good news on that front.
Russell Wilson came away from Sunday’s game loss with an injury to his throwing shoulder.

Russell Wilson, Nathaniel Hackett and the Denver Broncos’ new high-flying offense have been the talk, and the hope, of the Mile High City for the past six months.
But through the first two weeks of the NFL season, it’s been the other side of the ball — the ‘Dark Side,’ as the defense calls themselves — that has carried the team, kept them afloat and guided Denver to a 1-1 record.
Exactly four weeks out from the start of their season, the Denver Broncos received a plethora of positive news along the injury front.
Baron Browning’s transition from ILB to OLB “has been definitely even better than we even thought.”
In the second week of camp, he’s made a massive jump and making big-time plays.
For the first time in camp, the Broncos had a lighter practice.
But that didn’t mean it wasn’t important.
In fact, Nathaniel Hackett said it was a test for the team.
And they passed with flying colors.
