Stay in touch with all the latest happenings from Denver Broncos Training Camp 2007 as Syndicated Columnist Michael John Schon gives us the lowdown on who's hot - who's not and where the team is headed as they gear up for the regular season.
After a chippy Day Nine, Papa Shanahan decided it was time to yank the pads and see if everybody could co-exist without the need to beat each other up. From what I could tell it worked - nobody with bruises was complaining.
The focus was primarily geared toward goal line situations, red zone offense and field goal formations - Javon Walker is an obvious lock at wide receiver with Brandon Stokley a secure number two - Daniel Graham, Stephen Alexander, Nate Jackson and Teyo Johnson all looked good at tight end - it'll be a tight race for the roster.
Travis Henry looks solid in the backfield - with Cecil Sapp slightly ahead of Mike Bell at number two.
Paul Ernster could have had laid out some pretty solid punts - unfortunately long snapper Chris Meyers was under the impression his punter was about two-feet taller than he really is and sailed several snaps well out of reach. Those he was able to wrangle in looked impressive, unfortunately he's the odd man out with Todd Sauerbrun set as the starter.
Play of the Day came on a fake field goal attempt with Sauerbrun taking the snap, rolling out and finding the ever-elusive Jason Elam streaking down the sideline for a score. (Yea… I guess it could happen)
Backup Preston Parsons gave up a pair of INT's to Dre' Bly and Domonique Foxworth but came back strong with a scoring toss to David Kircus during the third team's two-minute drills. Parson's kind of a tough call - best case scenario he's polishing the clipboard on the practice squad - worst case scenario involves Wal Mart.
The list of walking wounded has gotten to the point that I've got it almost memorized - Ben Hamilton (concussion), Matt Lepsis (groin), Quentin Harris (knee), Louis Green (left knee), Warrick Holdman (spinal cord concussion), Brandon Marshall (quad), Glenn Martinez (thigh), Marquay McDaniel (hamstring), Brandon Stokley (left thigh) and Rod Smith (hip).
Rookie Jarvis Moss had a limited work out, his first since injuring a knee during Tuesdays drills. Tony Scheffler also took the field - look for a return within the next two weeks if all goes well.
