This didn’t post the other day as it ended up a draft and wanted your feedback on it and also the new naming of the Stadium. I like Sports Authority and all they do for kids programs around the mtero area and was happy to see a sporting name associated with the Broncos.
Pulled this from ESPN site and heard it around the lunch hour.
Marcus Thomas (strained pectoral) and Ty Warren (torn triceps) won’t be back on the field anytime soon.
On Thomas, the Broncos made the former Patriots star interior lineman the centerpiece of their free agent class by signing him to a two-year, $8 million deal that included a $2.5 million bonus and $1.5 million salary for 2011.
They also re-signed their own free agent defensive tackle, Marcus Thomas, at $1 million for one year.
Both were injured within five minutes of each other when they lined up with the first-team defense during a 9-on-7 drill Monday.
Thomas’ chest muscle wasn’t completely torn off the bone like Elvis Dumervil’s was when he suffered a season-ending injury early in last summer’s training camp. So, the Broncos are hoping he’ll be ready to play by the time their season starts Sept. 12.
Ty Warren is out indefinitely. The Broncos are hoping he won’t need surgery and can return to the field at some point this season, although that would mean going with a 52-man roster for a while.
With the hip from last year and and now the tricep, if it needs surgery might end Ty’s career…not sure and hope not or that would be a tough way to leave the league.
I’m still wondering how much/many injuries we will see this year with the limited contact and reps the new CBA allows???
