Healthy Broncos Lard 11-19-10

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Denver released their cleanest injury report of the year yesterday, as only Andre' Goodman missed practice and is expected not to play Monday night. Robert Ayers and Darcel McBath were limited participants but are expected to play. The Dolts were still without Antonio Gates and Ryan Mathews, while four players were limited for San Diego in practice yesterday. Oh, and Andre Brown is back for more on the Broncos' practice squad. Have a great Friday, everyone! Trivia Trough later...

Notes from Legwold.

Krieger already has his second article up about the campaign for orange jerseys. Go figure...

Legwold tries to make the case that "one-dimensional" offenses can win in the NFL. His proof? The Colts, who are led by one of the best QBs in history, and the Dolts - who have one of today's very best QBs and are actually middle-of-the-road in terms of rushing yardage this season (16th in the NFL). Okay, Jeff...
