In a surprise return outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett begins practicing after suffering a torn labrum in his hip earlier this offseason.

Shaquil Barrett returned to practice today and immediately walked rookie Garett Bolles back during a one-on-one drill. Barrett said after practice that he suffered a torn labrum in his hip, he is not yet forecast to play in Week One. Barrett was not the only Denver Broncos player to return to practice: Jamaal Charles, Cody Latimer, Emmanuel Sanders and T.J. Ward all returned today. Today the Broncos also released an updated depth chart. One of the only camp battles left is currently playing out at left guard where Max Garcia and newly acquired Allen Barbre are duking it out for the right to start for the team. Garcia got first reps today. Barbre had first reps against the San Francisco 49ers. We will have all of that and more! Get in where you fit in! There's much, much more to be discussed, join host Ian Henson as he guides back to Denver for the Broncos first home game of the preseason facing Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers!

  • Aqib Talib has been passed on once this preseason and it went for 0 yards.
  • Harris and Talib have been on the field for 17 snaps and have profoundly accounted for 55 total defensive yards, a touchdown and two tackles for losses.
  • Bradley Roby has played 19 snaps this preseason.
  • Shelby Harris's 53 snaps have netted him two tackles, one pass defense and two fumble recoveries.
  • Tyrique Jarrett through preaseason: 3 solo tackles, 1 tackle for a loss.
  • Jamal Carter leads the Broncos in tackles (66 defensive snaps). He played four snaps against the 49ers.
  • Orion Stewart is tied for the team lead in tackles, he's played 58 defensive snaps.
  • Dymonte' Thomas has three tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery, he's played 64 defensive snaps.
  • Chris Lewis-Harris is also tied for the team lead in tackles with six, he has two pass deflections and one interception. He has played a whopping 79 defensive snaps in preseason.
  • Chris Harris, Aqib Talib, Darian Stewartall played 14 snaps against the 49ers.
  • Brandon Langley also played 14 snaps against the 49ers.
  • Bradley Roby played 19 snaps against San Francisco, Chris Lewis-Harris played 26 snaps and Lorenzo Doss played 23 snaps.
  • Demaryius Thomas and C.J. Anderson took 19 snaps.
  • Paxton Lynch took 29 snaps and navigated 13 points, admittedly leaving two touchdowns on the field for which he referenced penalties.
  • De'Angelo Henderson took 21 snaps, had 6 carries for 30 yards (5 yard average) and 2 catches for 20 yards (10 yard average). He also had a touchdown and another possible big run/touchdown negated by Garett Bolles penalties. Henderson also had a special teams tackle. On a punt with 13:33 in the 4th quarter.
  • For what it is worth, on one of those Bolles penalties, he and Virgil Green looked to have had a seal that would have sprung Henderson for a 40+ yard gain in the 1st quarter. Looked like an excellent stretch play. C.J. Anderson ran it successfully as well, twice at least.
  • Trevor Siemian took 24 snaps and came away with three less points than Lynch, but one more passing touchdown.
  • Paxton Lynch averages 5.4 average yards-per-carry (2nd most on Broncos with 6+ carries) and 3.7 average yards-per-pass.
  • Jordan Taylor's only reception was his 19-yard touchdown from Siemian. He had three targets.
  • Kalif Raymond followed up his Chicago Bears game where he had one catch for 24 yards, one punt return for 34 yards and one kickoff return for 41 yards with a 49ers game where he had one catch for four yards and one punt return for three yards.
  • Lorenzo Doss has taken 75 of the snaps at cornerback.
  • Rookie corner Brendan Langley has taken 77 snaps at cornerback.
  • Chris Harris and Aqib Talib have taken 17 snaps at cornerback.
  • Chris Lewis-Harris has taken 79 snaps at cornerback.
  • Those are five cornerbacks that make your 53-man roster.
  • Harris and Talib have been on the field for 17 snaps and have profoundly accounted for 55 total yards, a touchdown and two tackles for losses.
