Good Morning, Broncos fans! Chris Clark is off to a fine start as Denver's starting left tackle in place of Ryan Clady.
So far, he's faced off against Oakland's Lamarr Houston and a group of Eagles edge defenders led by Trent Cole.
But tomorrow comes his stiffest test yet, if not of the season: Cowboys linebacker and all-time leading sack man DeMarcus Ware (if you're wondering, KC's Justin Houston plays on the other side, so he figures to be Orlando Franklin's assignment).
According to Mike Klis, Denver figures to provide Clark with help in the form of tight ends and Knowshon Moreno. In other words, don't expect to see much of Montee Ball, or as much of Ronnie Hillman.
Fortunately for Clark and Moreno, Ware isn't at 100% health, as he dealt with a back strain last week and has also been limited by neck and shoulder stingers this season.
While he's frustrated by his own health issues, Champ Bailey loves what he's seeing out of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Knowshon Moreno and Kevin Vickerson were each fined $7,875 for roughness penalties against the Eagles; Denver worked out former LSU punter Brad Wing, just in case Britton Colquitt were to get injured.
