Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! A few more observations from PK's (extra annoying) MMQB column today. We're hoping he was drunk when he wrote it:
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Sorry for the delay in the Lard today. I didn't know I'd be filling in for Doug until about an hour ago, so I had to rush from my pedicure to my laptop.
Better late than never, right?
First, the Broncos were much higher on Juwan Thompson than expected (my view: they are lower on Ronnie Hillman, despite his position on the depth chart). Second, Mitch Unrein beat out Kevin Vickerson.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Apologies for the lack of a Friday Lard; let's get caught up a bit, shall we?
Manning's penalty is kind of ridiculous, but since Welker kind of ducked into the hit, we get the lack of a fine for Swearinger.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Wes Welker continues to progress in his recovery from his latest concussion.
According to Mike Klis, Welker has been cleared to fly to Dallas for tonight's preseason finale.
But he has not yet received clearance for on-field contact, so he won't yet be practicing or playing.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! With final cuts only a few days away, transactions continue to flood the wire, and they're getting more interesting by the day.
New England traded guard Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-rounder.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Kicker watch continues here in Broncos Land.
The Giants chose Josh Brown over Brandon McManus, who spent last summer in Colts camp.
A Temple alum, McManus reportedly boots kickoffs out of the end zone with ease and has made a 75-yard field goal in practice.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! As Jeff Legwold had first suggested, Mike Klis reports that Denver is likely to find its next starting kicker via the waiver wire.
According to Klis, the Broncos will be paying close attention to kicking competitions in Kansas City, New Orleans, and Tennessee.
Many of the league's best kickers are retreads and/or went undrafted out of college, and of course, a kicker on a Peyton Manning-led team is particularly unimportant.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! As Jeff Legwold notes, Wes Welker's latest concussion figures to loom large in Denver's upcoming roster decisions.
The team already lost Jordan Norwood earlier in the week to a torn ACL; he'd been expected to stick as a punt returner and sixth receiver.
Given Welker's concussion history, it's no sure thing that he'll be back anytime soon.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! In the traditional final preseason tuneup for starters, several key Broncos are expected to play tonight against Houston.
According to Mike Klis, Von Miller, Montee Ball, and Kevin Vickerson will make their preseason debuts, while Emmanuel Sanders will return from his one-week absence.
Of Denver's 22 starters, only Chris Harris will not play.
Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Emmanuel Sanders returned to practice on Thursday and may even see some action on Saturday evening.
That decision will be made sometime this evening; Sanders has been hampered throughout the summer by a quad injury.
Meanwhile, Wes Welker was excused for personal reasons for the second straight day, and might be held out for the game against Houston.
