Broncos safety T.J. Ward is back with the team after serving a one-game suspension.
"It was very difficult," Ward said Monday."I wanted to be out there, but I couldn't. It is what it is. I'm back now and ready to go."
Ward said he wasn't surprised with the way his defensive teammates played.
"They played how I expected them too," said Ward. "They played how we've been practicing, how we played in the preseason. I was very proud of how they played."
Ward is expected to re-enter the starting lineup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
3rd and Long: Defense rules the day
The Broncos defense was masterful on Sunday. It has been a decade since the Denver defense literally won a game for us. That happened yesterday.
Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward formally rejoined the team Monday and will be back in his customary spot at strong safety in Thursday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium.
It's the "No Fly Zone" for a reason, and once again, the Pro Bowl cornerback's space was not an area in which a QB wanted to tread.
The Broncos again ranked No. 11, but their value jumped 34 percent, to $1.94 billion. Their revenue also increased, from $301 million in 2013 to $346 million in 2014, and its operating income skyrocketed nearly 213 percent, from $31 million to $66 million.
This wasn't how Steve Smith had envisioned his final NFL season to begin.
Everyone should be talking about how dominant the Denver defense was from start to finish in this game, and just how good they are going to be as the season goes along.
A fan fell over a railing at Sports Authority Field, and suffered serious injuries last night.
First impressions being first and all, the offense the Denver Broncos unveiled in their season-opening win over the Baltimore Ravens may not have been what some expected.
David Bruton Jr. is also expected to practice during the Broncos' Monday night "jog-through" session, and Malik Jackson has not been diagnosed with a concussion.
Line judge Gary Arthur wasn’t able to finish yesterday’s Ravens-Broncos game after taking a hard shot during a punt in the first quarter.
There were four extra points missed in Sunday's action, a sharp uptick compared to past seasons. According to the NFL Media Research Team, just 37 of 6,447 PATs were missed in the previous five seasons. That breaks down to an average of 7.4 misses per season.
