Tamme TD highlights stadium scrimmage

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The team held its annual stadium scrimmage on Saturday, in front of 38,620 appreciative (and appreciated) fans.

Julius Thomas, Chris Harris, DeMarcus Ware, and Kevin Vickerson were among those who were held out.

Thomas suffered a thigh bruise on Friday, but is expected back at practice on Monday.

In his place, Jacob Tamme made a one-handed touchdown catch from Peyton Manning.

Brock Osweiler led the second team offense on another touchdown drive, this one against the starting defense.

However, he was almost picked off by Lamin Barrow, and Danny Trevathan was credited with a sack. Derek Wolfe and Malik Jackson might have had two more.

While Osweiler has no idea if or when he'll take meaningful snaps for Denver, he still says he's happy to be here.

Zac Dysert also thrived, completing seven straight passes in a showdown between the third teams.
