Denver Broncos Week 8 Rookie Report

The Broncos improved to 4-3 and their rookies had a large impact on the game.


RONNIE HILLMAN - Ronnie Hillman has been the man that everyone wants to see. We have heard tall tales of his blazing speed and we finally got to see it on Sunday night. Hillman pounded away with minimal gains until he broke one large one for 31 yards down the sideline. He had 14 carries for 81 yards.

DEREK WOLFE - Derek Wolfe had 2 tackles in the Broncos win. Wolfe played 92% of the snaps and in total, 52.

DANNY TREVETHAN - Danny Trevethan played 36 total snaps, 26 of them were on defense. He had 3 total tackles and 1 pass deflection.

MALIK JACKSON - Malik Jackson had no tackles and only played 2 total snaps on defense.

OMAR BOLDEN - Omar Bolden played 14 defensive snaps and 22 special teams plays. He had no tackles and one kickoff return for 12 yards.


ANDREW LUCK - Andrew Luck went 26 of 38 for 297 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 pick in an OT win against the Titans.

CHANDLER JONES - Chandler Jones had a nice week against the Rams in London. He had a sack, two tackles and 3 hurries.

ROBERT GRIFFIN - RG3 had a rough go against the Steelers. He went 16 of 34 for 1 touchdown and 177 yards and a fumble. ALFRED MORRIS had 13 carries for 59 yards.

TRENT RICHARDSON - He had 122 yards and one touchdown against the Chargers. He scored the only touchdown in the game helping defeat the Chargers 7-6.

DOUG MARTIN - Doug Martin impressed a lot of people on Thursday Night Football. Martin had 29 carries for 135 yards and a touchdown along with 3 receptions for 79 yards.

RUSSELL WILSON - Russell Wilson had 25 completions in 35 attempts for 236 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 INT in a loss to the Lions

I am really impressed with Danny Trevathan. He has been pretty strong in pass coverage for the Broncos. I think Ronnie Hillman is now getting the appropriate amount of reps that he should be and is a nice change up from Willis McGahee. I like what I see so far. Derek Wolfe has been very strong as well again giving us that very needed pass rush up the middle.

Go Broncos!
