Good Morning, Broncos fans! It's true - Knowshon Moreno has been a rock for Denver, for more than a year now.
But when it's said that Knowshon has gotten up with the ball in his hands for 389 straight touches, there's a convenient omission of sorts.
In full disclosure, Moreno did fumble against Dallas in Week 5.
But because he was fortunate enough to emerge with the ball - and remember, recovering fumbles is all about luck, as last week's game reinforced so well - it can be said that Knowshon hasn't lost a fumble since Week 2 against Atlanta in 2012.
Knowshon Moreno, Champ Bailey, and Omar Bolden were upgraded to full practice participants Friday, and are listed as probable for Sunday's game at Arrowhead.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Julius Thomas were again limited, and are questionable, as is Derek Wolfe, who fell ill on Friday and did not travel with the team to Kansas City.
According to the DP, Wolfe will be ruled out if he's unable to travel by sometime on Saturday afternoon.
Don’t you love life’s little ironies?
Just moments after Cris Collinsworth had long-windedly and orgasmically extolled the brilliance of Chiefs RT Eric Fisher (#72) during Denver's 27-17 Week 11 win, Derek Wolfe notched his fourth sack of the season by ragdolling Fisher. It happened with 9:35 left in the third quarter, and KC’s Alex Smith (#11) playing from the shotgun.
Since before he was drafted, I have liked Fisher’s play, and I enjoy watching his work. He’s learning quickly enough as a rookie for me to expect that at some point he’s going to take over the left tackle position from Branden Albert, just in view of his play so far. That doesn’t make his first year in the pros any less of a learning experience, though - every player has rookie moments.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Peyton Manning and Joel Dreessen were full practice participants Thursday, after having been held out on Wednesday.
Knowshon Moreno, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Omar Bolden made limited returns, while Kayvon Webster was upgraded to a full participant.
Champ Bailey and Julius Thomas were again limited, and are expected to play on Sunday.
John Fox made a surprise visit to practice at Dove Valley on Thursday, and while there, shared some unexpected and wonderful news.
Next Monday - and four weeks after having undergone surgery to replace a defective aortic valve - Fox will reassume his position as head coach.
The Broncos host the Titans in Week 14; it has not yet been determined whether Fox will coach from the sideline or up in the booth.
Enjoy the games, and Go Cowboys and Steelers (a Ravens loss is part of the Broncos' Week 13 clinching scenario)!
Good Morning, and Happy Thanksgiving, Broncos fans! Denver held Peyton Manning out of practice for the third consecutive Wednesday to rest his ailing ankles.
Knowshon Moreno, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Joel Dreessen, and Omar Bolden were also held out.
Champ Bailey, Julius Thomas, and Kayvon Webster were limited, while six others were listed as full participants.
Manning and Dreessen are expected back for today's practice.
As expected, the Broncos have placed Kevin Vickerson on IR and replaced him with a veteran free agent.
Denver has signed DT Sione Fua (6-1, 310), a third-year player drafted by Carolina in the third round (97th overall) of the 2011 Draft.
The Stanford alum has 22 total tackles and one forced fumble in 27 career games (12 starts).
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! According to Joan Niesen, the team is expected to place Kevin Vickerson on IR and replace him with a veteran free agent.
Big Vick's hip dislocation is expected to require 6-8 weeks to heal, meaning his roster spot would essentially be wasted until late in the postseason, were he not placed on IR.
Sly Williams, Mitch Unrein, and Malik Jackson all figure to see more playing time in Vickerson's absence.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! San Francisco (7-4) cruised to a 27-6 victory over Washington (3-8) on Thursday night, keeping them in position for the NFC's final Wild Card.
The Niners were led by three TD passes from Colin Kaepernick and held RG3 & Co. to just 190 total yards.
San Francisco is expected to activate WR Michael Crabtree from their PUP list today and have him on the field against St. Louis on Sunday.
