With up to a foot of snow accumulating in the past 24 hours, the Denver Broncos practiced inside Thursday before departing to Buffalo.
The team used the half-field turf surface behind the weight room. However, the close quarters wasn’t an issue as the team was able to run through its practice.
“It wasn’t bad, similar to the place I have used in the past with another team,” Head Coach John Fox said. “I thought we got our work done, and didn’t risk injury going out in the snow covered field. I think we got done what we get done on an in-season type Friday practice.”
Safeties David Bruton and Brian Dawkins were limited Thursday. Fox said Dawkins’ availability for Saturday’s game isn’t known yet.
“A lot of it is just how he feels, understanding that there are some pretty big collisions that can occur during games and make sure he’s healthy enough to withstand those,” Fox said.
The team departs for Buffalo this afternoon on another two-day trip due to the 1 p.m. EST kickoff on Saturday.
Here is Thursday’s injury report.
