July 28, 2003 - Who says Ed McCaffrey is all spicy mustard and no hot dog? If injuries have taken a step or two from Denver's favorite receiver/pitchman, it certainly didn't show as McCaffrey showed off during Sunday's morning practice session.

July 27, 2003 - The phrase "full pads" means less to Ed McCaffrey than anyone else on the Broncos roster; he still dons only a little more protection than someone playing football, Australian-style. So when the Broncos added the full compliment of equipment to the shoulder pads the team donned for afternoon drills on Friday and Saturday, it was of little impact to the wide receiver.
