Monday’s practice session brought some good news for the Broncos on the injury front.
Safety Quinton Carter was back on the practice field for the first time since injuring his hamstring and knee all the way back on July 27, the second day of training camp. He participated in individual drills at the start of practice.
Also back were cornerback Tracy Porter, who missed most of last week’s practices due to an illness, linebacker Danny Trevathan — his first practice since injuring his ankle in the team’s preseason opener at Chicago on Aug. 9 — and running back Ronnie Hillman, who hasn’t played in either of the team’s preseason games with a hamstring injury.
Early in team drills, Hillman made a couple of long catch-and-run plays out of the backfield.
Linebacker Keith Brooking and safety Jim Leonhard, who are not participating in Monday’s practice, were on the field, working off to the side with Head Athletic Trainer Luke Richesson.
We’ll have plenty more from practice, including the full roll call, after the session concludes.
