Jul 30 2014 - Louis Young, CB Louis Young left Wednesday's practice after suffering a groin strain. Young, an undrafted free agent, was a part of multiple takeaways during the first three days of training camp.
Jul 30 2014 - Will Pericak, DL Will Pericak signed with the Broncos before Wednesday's practice. Pericak received a tryout from the Broncos during the May rookie camp, but was not signed by the team until now. He toiled on the practice squads of the Chargers and Jaguars last year.
Jul 30 2014 - Cody Larsen, DL Cody Larsen joined the Broncos on Wednesday after injuries compromised their depth on the defensive line. The 300-pound Larsen was on the Ravens' practice squad last year.
Jul 30 2014 - Kayvon Webster, CB Kayvon Webster is in line to be the Broncos' No. 3 cornerback. Throughout the offseason and training camp, he's worked as the first-team right cornerback opposite Aqib Talib. He capped Wednesday's practice from a pick-six off Peyton Manning.
Jul 30 2014 - T.J. Ward, S T.J. Ward has been active against the run and has gotten some looks in the box during training camp. "He almost looks like a (line)backer," noted Aqib Talib.
Jul 30 2014 - Montee Ball, RB Montee Ball is the clear No. 1 running back, as was expected heading into training camp. Ball has shown improvement as a receiver and as a blocker, and has intentionally challenged himself by setting himself up for one-on-one blocking drills against two of the three starting linebackers: Nate Irving and Danny Trevathan.
Jul 30 2014 - Tavon Rooks, T Tavon Rooks, a sixth-round draft pick this spring, was activated from the non-football injury list after missing four practices with a back problem.
Jul 30 2014 - Kevin Vickerson, DT Kevin Vickerson saw his first full-contact, team-period work of training camp during Wednesday's practice. Vickerson and Terrance Knighton worked together to crash through the offensive line for a sack of backup quarterback Brock Osweiler.
Jul 30 2014 - Marvin Austin, DT Marvin Austin saw some first-team repetitions on Wednesday. Austin has drawn notice for his work in one-on-one line drills, and has also consistently beaten the guards on the second-team offensive line during team periods. The 2011 second-round pick of the Giants is a dark horse to make the 53-man roster -- assuming he can stay healthy. He has played just 11 regular-season games in his three-year career.
Jul 30 2014 - Chris Harris, CB Chris Harris practiced Wednesday for the first time since tearing his ACL against the Chargers on Jan. 12. On July 28, Harris passed his six-month examination with Dr. James Andrews, who performed the reconstructive surgery in the winter. Harris was limited to individual drills and the walk-through period Wednesday.
Jul 30 2014 - Demaryius Thomas, WR Demaryius Thomas returned for a Monday night walk-through and took part in Wednesday's practice after missing the first four days of practice following the death of his grandmother from Alzheimer's disease. Thomas will have to be eased back into full-scale, full-pad work, per the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, but will be back at a full workload before the end of the week.
Jul 30 2014 - Von Miller, LB Von Miller took part in full-team, full-speed plays during Wednesday's practice. It marked his first work of that type since he tore his anterior cruciate ligament last Dec. 22.
Jul 30 2014 - Adrian Phillips, SS Adrian Phillips, an undrafted rookie out of Texas, is someone worth keeping an eye on as the camp progresses.
Jul 30 2014 - Kellen Clemens, QB Kellen Clemens, by all accounts, is picking up the offense well in his first season as Philip Rivers' backup.
Jul 30 2014 - Dwight Freeney, OLB Dwight Freeney is playing with a purpose but he's easing into the camp. He's yet to show the consistent quick burst and the torn quad muscle which derailed his season last year.
Jul 30 2014 - Melvin Ingram, OLB Melvin Ingram hasn't reported any setbacks with his knee which was repaired in the 2013 offseason. The team, though, is being careful with his work load.
Jul 30 2014 - Jeromey Clary, RG Jeromey Clary still isn't practicing after undergoing hip and shoulder surgeries this offseason. But he made progress in making the team by reducing his salary number from $4.55 million to $1.6 million which is expected to save the Chargers about $3 million on their salary cap. Clary is currently on PUP.
Jul 30 2014 - Alterraun Verner, CB Alterraun Verner missed Wednesday's practice because of a hamstring injury. That will just give more reps to CB Mike Jenkins, who was battling with Johnthan Banks for the other starting cornerback position.
Jul 30 2014 - Jeff Demps, RB Jeff Demps has struggled lately in practice holding onto the football.
Jul 30 2014 - Rod Streater, WR Rod Streater was limited in practice while going through the concussion protocol and expects to be cleared for contact Thursday.
