Fullback Jacob Hester has been with the Broncos since Nov. 26, when Denver signed the former Charger to help fill a void in the backfield left by an injury to running back Willis McGahee.
But he didn’t suit up for his first game as a Bronco until Sunday’s win over the Ravens. Hester said he was happy to be back in the mix for his long-anticipated first taste of live action in 2012.
“I felt really good,” Hester said. “I was inactive the first couple of games so I could try to learn and do that kind of stuff. But yesterday I felt comfortable out there. It felt good to get hit a little bit and get your first hits in. I’m glad to be here and glad to be a part of this team.”
