I know we've covered it a few times, but it's just too good to pass up for Horse Tracks. And In Case You Missed It: For Broncos fans who are still unsure of Cody Latimer, or feel like they haven't seen enough out of him in preseason games to believe the training camp hype, I present you with this:
In the video, we see more good things from Brock Osweiler, delivering a ball where only his receiver can get the ball, and we see Cody Latimer rise up and pick the ball out of the air. When most people refer to putting the ball "only where the receiver can get it", they're suggesting that there was no way the defender could have gotten to the ball over the offensive player; however, in this case, it's quite possible that ONLY Cody Latimer could get to that ball. There are very few receivers (and even fewer young receivers) who can make that sort of play. If Latimer can bring these kind of plays on Sunday, he'll be a Broncos fan-favorite in no time.
- Forbes has ranked Denver Broncos fans as number two in the entire NFL, behind only the Packers. The site rated Broncos fans 4th in their social media category; we'd like to beg to differ here at Mile High Report.
- The Broncos and Texans exchanged punches in Thursday's practice, with Montee Ball and D.J. Swearinger at the heart of it. Brandon Marshall continued his solid play from the Niners game with a solid, disruptive practice on Thursday.
- Chris Harris Jr. expects to be back for Week 1 vs. the Colts, as long as he sticks to his recovery plan.
- Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney is fine, after leaving practice on Wednesday and sitting out practice Thursday, following a head-on-head collision with Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme. No word yet whether he will play in this weekend's game.
"It was kind of a wakeup call for me because I was like, ‘I don’t know how long I’m going to last in the league going against like this every week.’ It was definitely a challenge, for sure."
