From a superb preseason to a place in the starting 11 to a Sunday sideline spot in sweats. Running back Mike Bell wasn’t the only rookie to experience that kind of start to his NFL career, as Tony Scheffler, a starter in three of Denver’s first five games, found himself out of the mix in Week 10.
“Right before the game Sunday is when I first knew,” Scheffler said. “It’s hard, obviously, (because) coming off of preseason it looked pretty good.
“Finally, I think, (I was) starting to turn it around against Indianapolis (a four-catch, 51-yard day), but obviously there’s still a lot of work to be done, so I’ve just got to keep working hard.”
