Highlights and quotes from several players, coach McDaniels.

DP - Left alone, Orton looks all right - Mike Klis
Looking again at Kyle Orton's performance on Saturday, and ahead to the circus/drama that will come to town with JC and the Bears this week. According to Klis, backup QB Chris Simms has a severe ankle sprain and is on crutches. Hopefully it's not a high ankle sprain...

DP - Denver on lookout to give Royal some special-teams relief on kick returns - Jeff Legwold
Eddie Royal will likely handle punt returns in the regular season, while the Broncos are hoping either Alphonso Smith or Kenny McKinley steps up as a kickoff returner. Brandon Marshall is expected at practice tomorrow, but who knows what role he'll be assuming. In addition to Simms, Smith, Royal, Tony Carter and Marcus Thomas all suffered injuries Saturday night.

SI - Jerry Jones's new stadium, Brett Favre have inauspicious debuts - Peter King
PK shares an exchange he had with Brandon Marshall last week. King explained to BMarsh that the Broncos aren't going to cave. Interestingly, Brandon makes it pretty clear his unhappiness has nothing to do with the departure of Shanny and JC.
