After an injury-plagued first few weeks of training camp, the Denver Broncos look to be on the mend.
For the first time since sustaining their respective injuries, tight end Jacob Tamme (quad), cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), and cornerback Tony Carter (knee) all returned to practice in full pads Monday, with Tamme and Rodgers-Cromartie participating in team drills. Rodgers-Cromartie was limited, along with offensive tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder), who continued to dress in sweats instead of full leg and thigh pads but saw more extensive work than his earlier return to team drills.
"It was good to see those guys," head coach John Fox said after practice. "Clady got more extended work so we are starting to get some guys back."
Some camp highlights from Day 13: Peyton Manning and Champ Bailey had a nice back-and-forth; Manning and receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker stayed after practice to continue fine-tuning their routes; Virgil Green and Julius Thomas would not be overshadowed by Tamme's return and each scored touchdowns; Robert Ayers destroyed a Peyton Manning pass in early 11-on-11's.
