Camp Notes Day 2

The intensity starts to heat up as Denver concludes Day 2 of the 2004 Training Camp.

It may be early, there's still plenty of exitement at Dove Valley. Let's take a look at some of the highlightes from Day 2.

Champ Bailey picked off Jake Plummer to Ashley Lelie pass, tipping the ball away and catching it as he fell to the ground. This makes the second interception in as many days for Bailey.

Reuben Droughns, Adrian Madise, Triandos Luke, Romar Crenshaw, Roc Alexander and Jeff Shoate all participated in the team's kickoff return drills. Droughns and Madise appear to be the frontrunners, but competition remains heavy for the starting slot.

Defensive end Maro Coleman penetrated the backfield, stopping two running plays behind the line of scrimmage. So far the 13-year veteran has show a lot of intensity and ability in plugging up the front line.

Several veteran players will be sitting out the afternoon session the remainder of the week. According to head coach Mike Shanahan, John Lynch, Luther Elliss, Raylee Johnson, dan Neil, Tom Nalen, Rod Smith and Garison Hearst will all be excused from second sessions.

Backup quarterback Danny Kanell looks considerably more relaxed in his second camp with the Broncos. Kanell hooked up on a beautiful pass to Charlie Adams along the sidelines then hit Triandos Luke deep down the left sidelines.

The first major injury news came back and cornerback Lenny Walls will be sidelined for the next three weeks with a torn cartilage in his right ankle. The injury occured during one-on-one drills Wednesday morning when Walls was covering wide receiver Darius Watts and rolled his ankle while trying to make a cut.

Friday morning's practice will be the first this year in full pads. Expect some serious hitting along with the usual camp fight as the intensity heats up.
