2011 Training Camp – Day 13: P.M. Blog

ATTENTION: Please note that tomorrow’s (Wednesday’s) practice has been changed from 8:50-11:30 am to 9:30-11:00 am. It will be a non-padded walkthrough session but it remains free and open to the public.
The Broncos came out Tuesday late afternoon for an hour-long walkthrough session as they prepare for their first preseason game Thursday at Dallas.
There wasn’t a whole lot to report on, but there are a couple brief notes.
Receiver Eddie Royal, who sat out the morning’s padded practice, was in the lineup working with the first team. On the other hand Brandon Lloyd, who also sat out the morning practice (knee swelling), did not participate. Matt Willis started in his place.
The special team unit of long snapper Lonie Paxton, kickers Steven Hauschka and Matt Prater, punter Britton Colquitt, Special Teams Coordinator Jeff Rodgers and Assistant Special Teams Coach Keith Burns had some fun on the other practice field while the first and second teams walked through different sets. The six players and coaches had a contest to see who could hit the crossbar of the goalpost with a throw from varying distances. Hauschka and Rodgers were among the winners.
Daniel Fells, Dante Rosario and Dan Gronkowski got all of the action with the first team at tight end.
After a 5-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Brady Quinn to receiver Eric Decker, running back Knowshon Moreno gave Quinn an excited and elaborate high-five, handshake combo.
Even though it was close to 90 degrees, safety Brian Dawkins sported his trademark sweatpants with shorts over the top, long-sleeve shirt under his jersey and fishing hat.
