Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Montee Ball has made a limited return to practice this week, but it's unclear whether he'll play Sunday.
But even with Ronnie Hillman's struggles at New England, Montee is under no illusion that the starting gig will be handed back to him.
If the Broncos continue to be relatively healthy and don’t win it all this season, there is going to be a lot of negative attention on defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio. He was owned (again) by Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday. (The only time he’s beaten them was in last year’s AFC title game when half the Patriots’ roster was out with injuries). Broncos fans have to hope they were just holding back the real gameplan for the rematch, because allowing Rob Gronkowski a free release off the line is not much of a plan at all.
The reality is that both teams were decimated by injuries (Von Miller, Chris Harris, Derek Wolfe, Rahim Moore, Kevin Vickerson). But when you're too busy sucking at the Belichick teat to maintain journalistic objectivity...
The NFL announced its three London matchups for the 2015 season, and thankfully, the Broncos will not be involved.
However, they may benefit from one of the games, as the Chiefs will "host" the Lions in Week 8.

And he can’t envision former Raiders coach Jon Gruden, ESPN’s Monday Night Football analyst, returning to Oakland…
“The game that Jon Gruden coached isn’t the game they’re playing now.”
Funny, we thought that happened eight years ago.
Mike Freeman's 10-Point Stance: Big Ben's Big Change of Course
A Patriots player after the game texted me: “What do you hear on Wes?” I can tell you that former Patriots teammates were concerned for Welker and asking about him. They have since gotten in touch with him, I believe.
I can say this with certainty: After however many concussions he’s had (three, five, 10?) and the hits he’s taken, there are a lot of people close to Welker who want him to walk away from the game for the sake of his long-term health.
We won't speculate about Welker's current or future health here; we just hope that whatever decision he makes is the best one for his long-term wellbeing.
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! As one might have suspected, the Broncos' statistical ratings have taken something of a hit after their latest Foxboro debacle.
Again, we can take comfort in that SRS says Denver has faced the toughest schedule to date, and the slate should ease up substantially.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Indy (6-3) joined Denver and Pittsburgh in the AFC's six-win club with a 40-24 disembowelment of the Giants (3-5).
Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to give the Colts a 40-10 lead before the G-Men tacked on a pair of late scores.
Indy has a healthy two-game lead in the AFCS and are off next week before they host New England (who's also on bye) in an enormous Week 11 matchup.
According to the DP, Nate Irving's MRI on Monday showed a sprained MCL that may not end his season.
However, Irving's knee reportedly has significant swelling, and more tests are required.
Per Mike Klis, Denver plans to start either Lamin Barrow or Steven Johnson in his place.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! If anything should provide solace after yesterday's blowout, it's the Broncos' and Patriots' remaining schedules.
New England would appear to have a much tougher slate, with road games at Indy, Green Bay, San Diego, and the Jets.
They'll host Detroit, Miami, and Buffalo. Those are probably all wins, but necessarily easy matchups.
