Will Pryor beat Flynn?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Tonight brings the all-important third preseason game, against the Rams at SAF@MH.

The game should mark the return to action of Ryan Clady and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who are expected to make their preseason debuts.

We'll see a lot of Nate Irving at the Sam, and Danny Trevathan starting at the Will, while Malik Jackson and Jeremy Beal figure to see lots of playing time in Derek Wolfe's absence.

Of course, the first priority is getting through the night without any serious injuries; there were enough of those last week.

WR Andre Caldwell was fined $7,875 for his special-teams facemask penalty from last week.

Despite the constant mislabeling of the Broncos as a win-now-at-all-costs team, John Elway says the front office always has an eye toward the future (as his actions attest).

Denver's starting defense tonight will be largely made up of late picks and undrafted players.

Tonight will be Denverites' first experience with the No Females League's bag policy.

Fans got to meet all of Denver's players and coaches during a Friday luncheon at SAF@MH.
