Head coach Nathaniel Hackett is looking forward to that first preseason game, but he doesn’t see it as anything more than a way to evaluate the back end of the eventual 53-man roster.
“Nothing is like playing true football, tackling and all that stuff,” Hackett said on Wednesday. “But again, is preseason true football? It doesn’t count. It is, and it’s a great evaluation for us and to watch guys have that kind of opportunity to do it. I’ll keep coming back to that risk reward factor.”
To me, that sounds like some of the more important starters (think Russell Wilson) won’t be getting a whole lot of reps in that first game. But we’ll see. He’ll certainly be active today in the team’s joint practice with the Cowboys, though.
We’ll keep you updated with all the Day 14 updates from Broncos Camp below.

Peyton Manning, by the way, is at practice again. #Cowboys chants were loud for a bit during warmups. Then @DangeRussWilson ran out to field and #Broncos noise took over. But great environment today. #Denver7 pic.twitter.com/kZ8ZrKL1DV— Troy Renck (@TroyRenck) August 11, 2022

Russell Wilson finds Courtland Sutton for a big gain on his first pass. Finds Montrell Washington for another nice gain.— Summer of George (@GeorgeStoia) August 11, 2022
Meanwhile, on the other field, the #Broncos defense and Cowboys offense has been chippy. Couple little skirmishes.
Russell Wilson is COOKIN to start practice.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 11, 2022
Hasn’t had a ball hit the ground in his first three attempts, one going for 20 yards and the other for 30.

And as I typed this, CeeDee Lamb beats Ojemudia for a big gain over the middle. #Broncos
Broncos D and Cowboys O getting into it again. Small skirmishes but the energy and intensity is there.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 11, 2022
CeeDee Lamb is making plays against Broncos D. Just beat Pat Surtain for a gain of 25.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 11, 2022

3rd & 5 KJack breaks up slot dig.
If you didn’t know any better you’d think he’s only 33.
Wilson looks left and finds Sutton on an outbreaker. Sutton dives and makes an INSANE ONE-HANDED SNAG— Zach Segars (@Zach_Segars) August 11, 2022
I think 2019 Sutton I’d back folks. I’m SO HYPED

Would say the Broncos have won the battle up front so far.— Aric DiLalla (@AricDiLalla) August 11, 2022
Offensively, the run game has looked good with Javonte Williams popping a few runs. Pass pro hasn’t been an issue, either.
Defensively, not much for Dallas in the run game. Couple of TFLs on Zeke.
Albert O with the play of the day so far.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 11, 2022
Russell Wilson hit him behind as he was crossing the end zone, Albert tipped it twice to himself and caught it as he was falling down for a TOUCHDOWN
