Welcome to Day 11 of Denver Broncos camp. With the Broncos first preseason game coming on up two days, this will be their last public training camp practice until next week when training camp will be wrapping up.
Russell Wilson and the offense continued to make big strides yesterday as they continued to take advantage of a defense that has Justin Simmons sidelined with a minor injury. The starters will be playing a series or two on Friday, so getting that first live look at the offense is going to be awesome. It was something we were denied until Week 1 last year and we all know how that turned out.
Keep up to date below as the local media reports from Broncos camp live and feel free to discuss with the community in the comments section in this post. We will have a full recap of the day’s events later in the afternoon.

Russell Wilson with a PERFECT completion to Courtland Sutton 30 yards down field.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 9, 2023
Pat Surtain was in smothering coverage and Courtland was able to get last minute separation to make the catch in traffic
Courtland Sutton is having an incredible start to practice. Two fantastic catches, one on the sideline with Pat Surtain in smothering coverage and the other in the middle of the field with Damarri Mathis all over him.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 9, 2023
Drew Sanders with a great PBU on Hinton. He was in as tight of coverage as possible.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 9, 2023
Courtland Sutton has had a very strong training camp.— Aric DiLalla (@AricDiLalla) August 9, 2023
Have seen him both separate and make contested catches. Very encouraging.
A pair of impressive catches for him in 11-on-11 work today.
Tremendous team period for Russell Wilson and the first team offense that saw great ball placement to Sutton and Jeudy. He continues to show more confidence in this offense/scheme. Love how decisive he’s looked over the past few days. #Broncos #KOABroncosCamp— Ryan Edwards (@redwardsradio) August 9, 2023
Starting from the defense’s 21-yard line, Russell Wilson leads a red zone touchdown drive, capped off with a TOUCHDOWN pass to Courtland Sutton.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 9, 2023
Today’s practice was ALL ABOUT Russell Wilson and Courtland Sutton.— Zac Stevens (@ZacStevensDNVR) August 9, 2023
Sutton caught every single pass thrown his way, including a 30-yard pass from Russ with Pat Surtain in great coverage and another catch with Damarri Mathis all over him.
They capped the day off with a short TD.
