Broncos Post Game Notes

News and notes from week-three of the NFL season.

--SS Lee Flowers returns from his four-game substance-abuse suspension next week, which means the Broncos lose his roster exemption. Flowers bring veteran leadership and solid run defense to Denver's secondary.
   --QB Danny Kanell is living in a hotel and renting a car, which means he isn't sure how long he stays around this time.
   "I'm playing it week by week," said Kanell, signed when starter Jake Plummer suffered a minor separated shoulder.
   The Broncos know Kanell will pretty much be at their beck-and-call should they release him again and decide they need him back.
   --DT Dorsett Davis likely will continue to see playing time at defensive end, as he has shown he is versatile like Trevor Pryce. Davis lost his job to Darius Holland before the opener, but the Broncos need to get him on the field somehow, to give him experience, and this may be the best bet.
   --RB Quentin Griffin is continuing to get his legs under him, and figures to get more playing time as he proves himself trustworthy. Griffin turned heads in mini-camp because of his speed and elusiveness, and he has slowly been regaining his confidence after recovering from a broken leg.
   --LB Al Wilson continues playing for a new contract. He has gotten off to a good start, and has taken it upon himself to get the camaraderie at a high level among defensive players. With his potential replacement, second-round pick Terry Pierce, inactive so far this year, this is Wilson's chance to drive up his free-agent price and show officials he's too valuable to let go after his contract expires.
