August 9, 2003 - HOUSTON - When Matt Lepsis was taken off the field on a cart Monday afternoon because of a bad ankle sprain, the odds of him playing in the preseason opener seemed slim.

August 9, 2003 - HOUSTON — This season is all about the four horsemen.

Aug. 8, 2003 - HOUSTON -- Ultimately, it's all about the games -- be they in August on September. Two weeks of training-camp practice, preceded by 14 days of practice in May and June, have proven beneficial in getting the Broncos to this point of their preparation for the season -- the point where their execution and timing have rounded into form. But that work can only take a team so far, and the next stage of development for this year comes Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. CDT, when the Broncos and Houston Texans kick off for their first game of 2003.
