Broncos wide receiver Walker likely out Sunday - NFL Network - Adam Schefter
09/29/2007 - The Broncos suffered some losses even before they arrived in Indianapolis. They lost their regular starting guard, Ben Hamilton, for the rest of the season when they placed him on the injured reserve list on Friday. Hamilton suffered a concussion in the early part of training camp, never recovered, and now has been lost for the season. Denver also lost on another front. It's looking as if wide receiver Javon Walker will be unable to come back from the knee injury he suffered during last week's loss against Jacksonville to play Sunday at Indianapolis. The injury prevented Walker from practicing most of this week and now looks as if it will prevent him from playing as well.

Colts Will Face the Broncos’ Shaky Secondary - New York Times - Associated Press
09/29/2007 - Broncos safety John Lynch thinks the Denver secondary has never been better equipped to slow down Peyton Manning and the Colts’ high-powered offense. Lynch is only hoping to be part of it. He injured his groin in a loss to Jacksonville last Sunday and does not know if he will be healed in time. “I’m always optimistic and feel like I’ve always been a fast healer,” Lynch said last Thursday. “It’s improving.” Last season, Manning torched the Denver secondary for 345 yards and 3 touchdown passes in a 34-31 win.

Broncos Hope To Keep Division Lead, Beat Colts - - Staff
09/29/2007 - A battle of first-place teams will be the feature attraction at the RCA Dome on Sunday afternoon, as the Indianapolis Colts welcome the Denver Broncos to town in a matchup between two frequent members of the AFC elite. The Colts have looked every bit the part of reigning Super Bowl champ thus far in 2007, taking the best shot of the Saints (41-10), Titans (22-20) and Texans (30-24) to continue their September dominance.

Broncos' Rice says his stats justify swagger - Co Springs Gazette - Frank Schwab
09/29/2007 - Simeon Rice, wearing oversized designer sunglasses in the hallway outside the Denver Broncos locker room, summed up his feelings about life. "I enjoy who I am," Rice said. "Why change? I like being me." Rice never runs out of insight, and the outspoken defensive end had one more thought as he turned and walked away. "A lot of people wake up and they don't like being themselves," Rice said. "I don't happen to be one of them."

09/29/2007 - Your Denver Broncos play the defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. And the Broncos will be on the road. Believe it or not, the second sentence above actually may represent Denver's best hope. In case you haven't noticed, the Broncos' home-field advantage isn't the best in the NFL these days. In fact, it's not even an advantage at all. Including Sunday's 23-14 loss to the visiting Jaguars, the Broncos are 2-5 in their last seven games at Invesco Field. Dating back to Week 8 last season, the Colts, Chargers, Seahawks, 49ers and Jags have all ventured to the Mile High City and emerged victorious.

09/28/2007 - Newly-Acquired Henry a Perfect Fit for Broncos Offense, Colts Players Say
The move surprised Rob Morris not a bit. In fact, when the Colts' outside linebacker heard in the off-season the Denver Broncos had acquired running back Travis Henry, he thought the fit was perfect. The Broncos like downhill, physical runners, and have used them for more than a decade to be one of the NFL's top running teams. Enter Henry, acquired in a trade this past off-season. He's experienced. He's elusive. Mostly, he's physical. Very, very physical.
