No quit in Carswell: 'I know I'll be ready' - Rocky Mountain News – Lee Rasizer
April 14, 2006 - Dwayne Carswell's comeback from a serious auto accident is finally off to a running start. Carswell is being eased into the Denver Broncos' off-season conditioning program, which began April 3, understandable given the offensive lineman had his spleen removed, smashed his ribs, tore his diaphragm and essentially had his internal organs jammed into the top of his chest cavity when his car was broadsided on his way to the team's practice facility Oct. 27. He was first cleared to resume physical activity in February and gradually worked his way into stair-climbing and stationary bike exercises and core work that addresses the abdominal and hip areas along with the connective tissue. But on Thursday, he took a major step in his goal of returning by July's team minicamp: The 12-year pro for the first time jumped onto the treadmill and jogged for about 20 minutes. "It was a workout," Carswell said. Encouragement boosting Watts - Denver Post – Bill Williamson

White has hamstring tear - Denver Post – Mike Klis

Results of an MRI on White's powerful, but troublesome right hamstring came back Thursday showing a moderate tear near the pelvic region, according to Dr. Randall Eldridge, a Denver chiropractor renowned for his treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. The hamstring tear will sideline the former Chatfield High School and University of Southern California star until mid-May, which means White will not have a personal workout prior to the April 29 NFL draft and may not be ready for the mini-camp of the NFL team that selects him.

April 13, 2006 - Ron Dayne isn't sure he has a leg up in the race to become the next starting running back for the Denver Broncos. But even before arriving this month for the team's off-season conditioning program, he was doing enough squats, leg presses and lunges to make sure it wasn't much of a stretch should that scenario play out. "You can't run without your legs, so I work hardest on them," he said. "Even when I'm tired, I'm going to get a workout on my legs." Yet the past several years, Dayne has rested his lower body more than he would like when it matters most - on game day.

Sinorice Moss Looks to Follow Brother's Footsteps Again - – Andrew Mason
Thursday, April 13, 2006 - It would have been easy for former University of Miami wide receiver Sinorice Moss to comfortably exist in the shadows. He chose to follow the path of his elder brother, Santana Moss, in playing wide receiver for the Hurricanes. He played the same position at which the older Moss succeeded so brilliantly during his years there.
