Horse Tracks: Antonio Smith could be back for Training Camp

Good Morning Broncos Country!

According to the Denver Posts Troy Renck, Denver Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith could be allowed back for Training Camp next week.

Smith sat out the Broncos offseason workouts as Texas prosecutors continued to investigate criminal abuse allegations against him. He has yet to be charged with anything.

Renck says that it's likely that Smith will be present when the veteran's report for Training Camp on Thursday. Now Mike Klis of 9NEWS says that Head Coach Gary Kubiak and General Manager John Elway have yet to decide on whether or not to allow Smith back. He says that they will make a decision sometime next week.

If the Broncos do decide to keep him away, they will not be able to fine him for his absence. Now if Smith disagrees with this he could ask the NFLPA for help.

Training Camp is near!:
