2010 Training Camp Day 13 Blog
August 13th, 2010 - 10:29am by Gray Caldwell
The Broncos headed back to INVESCO Field at Mile High Friday morning for a practice closed to the public.
Just a quick note — all practice times are subject to change, and some sessions next week have been shuffled around. Be sure to check the Fan Information Guide for the full schedule, or call the training camp hotline — (720) 258-3709.
Eddie Royal and Marquez Branson were among the players back at practice after sitting out Thursday’s afternoon session. Despite wearing full pads, the team practiced at a walkthrough speed. For that reason, the majority of the highlights Friday morning came on the offensive side of the ball.
OFFENSE VS. DEFENSE
In the first play of 11-on-11s, Mario Haggan pushed his blocker into the backfield to stop a run by Bruce Hall behind the line of scrimmage.
Later in practice, Kevin Alexander sprinted into the backfield for what would’ve been a sack on Brady Quinn.
Brandon Stokley got involved throughout the session, catching a screen pass for big yardage during 11-on-11s, hauling in deep passs from Kyle Orton and Quinn during 7-on-7s and punching it into the end zone during a red-zone drill, rolling over the goal-line after hauling in a pass.
Hall found the corner on a run during 11-on-11s thanks to a block by Spencer Larsen.
Lance Ball cut his run through a hole on the right side of the line, sprinting into the defensive secondary. Richard Quinn limped over to Head Athletic Trainer Steve Antonopulos after the play.
Tim Tebow tossed a screen pass to Toney Baker, who sprinted his way for another big gain. Tebow spoke with Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy afterwards.
The team kicked off this morning’s session by running through pregame drills, focusing on their gameday routine that will go into effect Saturday at Cincinnati.
At the start of practice, tight ends caught passes from position coach Bob Ligashesky as their teammates hit them with blocking pads to simulate tight coverage.
During special teams drills, Britton Colquitt worked on punting from the back of his own end zone. He boomed it past the 50-yard line on each attempt.
Toward the end of the session, the offense worked on starting a drive at its own 1-yard line. After two plays, Colquitt once again punted from the back of his end zone — this time to the opposite 37-yard line, where Perrish Cox was back deep to receive. On the next play, the team threw in a fake punt to make sure everyone was prepared.
Below are pictures from the session. The team travels to Cincinnati tomorrow.
