After becoming the first player in team history to lead the NFL in receiving yards last season, wide receiver Brandon Lloyd turned in his first 100-yard game of 2011 last Sunday in Green Bay. Lloyd finished with eight catches for 136 yards. His eight catches were the second-most in his nine-year career while the 136 yards ranked fourth.
“(Lloyd) did a nice job, and (QB) Kyle (Orton) had some nice throws to him,” Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy said on Thursday. “Brandon was flying off the football. That’s the guy we love to see.”
Lloyd, who had been limited by a groin injury that kept him out of Denver’s Week 2 game against Cincinnati, credited having a full week of practice as helping spur the big performance.
