Horse Tracks 12/20/09 - Bruton expected to start in place of injured S Hill

New, comments


DB - Matchup: Broncos vs. Raiders - Broncos TV

DB - A Closer Look: Oakland Raiders - Gray Caldwell

DP - Broncos elevate Carter; waive Taylor - Jeff Legwold
"With the league’s practice squad rules Carter could be released Monday and re-signed to the Broncos practice squad once he clears waivers if they wish to bring Taylor back for additional offensive line depth."

LTC - Youngsters ready to contribute - Brian Howell

DPP - Playoffs? Thank Stokley - Woody Paige
"Should the Broncos beat the Raiders today and the Chiefs in the finale, and fall at Philadelphia in between, and should the Ravens and the Dolphins win their last three games, which is quite possible, the Broncos might be eliminated as an AFC wild card by dissimilar tiebreakers."

DPP - December the sore spot of NFL season - Jim Armstrong
"Rest assured, there are some current Broncos playing through injuries that will land them on a surgeon's table after the season."

DPP - Profile: Track background comes in handy for Broncos rookie Bruton - Lindsay Jones

DP - Fan-tastic send-off for Broncos' "Barrel Man" - Annette Espinoza
"No matter what the temperature, what the score, he was always positive," said former Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith. "He had heart and soul, and I'll never forget him."

PFW - Underutilized Scheffler may be stuck in Denver - AFC Whispers
"Sources familiar with Scheffler say they get the sense he would like to play in a different system, but he'll be a restricted free agent this offseason barring a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and may be stuck in Denver."

PFW - Orton’s success unlikely to alter Broncos’ approach - Dan Parr
"If no new CBA is in place before free agency begins, Orton will be a restricted free agent, and Denver will likely retain the 27-year-old by issuing him a one-year tender for a little more than $1 million. Sources don't expect other teams to risk losing draft picks by signing him to an offer sheet."

DB - There For The Taking - Mike Rice

DB - Carter Gets the Call - Kyle Sonneman

DPP - TE requires more respect - Mike Klis
"Five key Denver players — QB Kyle Orton, OLB Elvis Dumervil, WR Brandon Marshall, G Chris Kuper and TE Tony Scheffler — will have expired contracts at season's end. Barring a new NFL collective bargaining agreement, however, all will be controlled by the Broncos through restrictive free agency and could be subject to no more than one-year contracts worth $1 million to $3 million."

DPP - Unfamiliar faces get fresh look - Jeff Legwold
"Bruton is expected to start at safety in place of Renaldo Hill, who missed practice this past week because of an ankle injury."

NFL Opinion

NFP - Sunday at the Post - Mike Lombardi
"But as a high-ranking NFL official told me, it’s still Mike Shanahan in Washington, with his son Kyle and former defensive coordinator Bob Slowik in a yet-to-be-determined role. The only team that can derail this Shanahan train to D.C. is the Dallas Cowboys."
