Study suggests college players report fewer than 4% of possible concussions

Good Morning, Broncos fans! A couple of notes on coaching jobs from Gary Myers:

Raiders owner Mark Davis seems obsessed with bringing back Jon Gruden to coach in Oakland after he fired Dennis Allen last week. If Davis gives Gruden total control, this might be the job he takes...

Speculation is the University of Michigan wants Ravens coach John Harbaugh if Brady Hoke gets fired. If not John, then Jim, the 49ers coach and former Wolverines quarterback...

Continuing to undesign

In a continuing effort to focus on readability and content, I've made some more design tweaks. Or untweaks, depending on how you want to look at them.

Aqib Talib aims to prove Broncos spent wisely on him

Aqib Talib has something to prove
espn.go.com

The takeaway for the 28-year-old Talib was that new beginnings can trump old baggage. For a man who has been suspended or involved in a legal run-in at every level of his career, Talib is out to prove something critical in his first year in Denver: that the Broncos made a sound investment.

It's boilerplate as these things go, but still interesting to learn more about Talib's background.

Carson Palmer highly unlikely to face Broncos on Sunday

The Cardinals have not yet officially ruled Carson Palmer out for Sunday's game in Denver, but all signs continue to point that way.

Palmer's throwing shoulder reportedly has no structural damage, and the team apparently hasn't considered putting him on short-term IR.
