After three consecutive road games, the Broncos are finally back in the friendly confines of INVESCO Field at Mile High.
Hope everyone had a merry Christmas yesterday and spent time with family and friends. Now we get a full slate of NFL games to unwind from the holidays, including this afternoon’s Broncos-Texans tilt.
Tim Tebow is set to take his second start as a pro, and he’s already on the field throwing passes to Britt Davis.
Just got Houston’s inactives: Matt Leinart is listed as the third quarterback. CB Brice McCain, DT DeMario Pressley, G Shelley Smith, DE Jarvis Green, WR Andre Johnson, TE Anthony Hill and TE Garrett Graham will not play this afternoon. Jacoby Jones will start in Johnson’s place at receiver.
For the Broncos, Kyle Orton is the third quarterback. Laurence Maroney, Chevis Jackson, Darcel McBath, Stanley Daniels, Eric Olsen, Demaryius Thomas and Jeff Byers will not suit up.
12:45 p.m. MST: Britton Colquitt is out on the field in a full blue uniform alongside kicker Steven Hauschka. The rest of the players have made their way back through the tunnel. It’s a fairly warm and sunny day for Dec. 26 — it’s 52 degrees, according to Weather.com.
