COVID-19 has rocked the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Chargers this week. But at this moment, it is the Broncos who are trending in the wrong direction.
Despite taking extra precautions, COVID-19 hit the Denver Broncos hard on Wednesday.
But thanks to the new NFL protocols, the Broncos have a chance to get multiple players back before Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
The Denver Broncos' initial 53-man roster is officially set.
Here's how the roster shakes out and what George Paton and Vic Fangio had to say about it.
"Saturday, I definitely want to be able to go out and play fast and just not think about anything,” Sutton said.
Teddy Bridgewater, not Drew Lock, had the highest highs and the lowest lows during Wednesday’s practice.
With the QB competition potentially coming to an end soon, did the rollercoaster day help or hurt Teddy’s quest to becoming the starter?
No wonder Bradley Chubb was smiling broadly when he walked onto the field for pre-practice calisthenics.
Despite all of the talent across the Broncos' defense, entering the weekend, the starting unit hadn't had a single interception the first three days of camp.
On Saturday, they changed that in a big way.
In the first two days of camp, Bridgwater only had one incompletion each day.
On Friday, it was Drew Lock who only saw the ball hit the ground once.
Over the past five years, the Broncos have been very accustomed to the defense dominating camp, especially right out of the gate.
Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater didn't let that happen on Wednesday.
If Drew Lock had more days like the one he had Tuesday, it might never have been necessary for the Broncos to trade for Teddy Bridgewater.
One could not stifle a groan after seeing the first pass play of the initial team period of the Broncos' 2021 organized team activities.
Last year, the Broncos took advantage of an excellent WR class in the draft.
With another loaded class of pass catchers on deck for the 2021 draft, will Denver look to capitalize on the position again?
Without Courtland Sutton, the Broncos are about as inexperienced as a receiving corps can be. But Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler have already taken a big role in the offense. Now they're in a prime position to take off.
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.
