The trivia question from the 20th day of training camp comes from the final drill of practice. The offense was faced with a tough situation — having just scored a touchdown with no time on the clock, the group needed a successful two-point conversion to tie the game. More on that drill in the “quick hits” section of the blog, but the question is this: On the final play of the drill, quarterback Adam Weber hit a wide receiver in the end zone for a successful two-point conversion to tie the game and give the offense the win in the drill. Who caught the pass?
Leave your answers in the comments section, and the answer — and winner — will be revealed at 6 p.m. MDT. The winner will receive a Broncos prize pack.
Safety Jim Leonhard (knee), safety Quinton Carter (hamstring and knee), linebacker Keith Brooking (hamstring), cornerback Tracy Porter (illness), linebacker Danny Trevathan (ankle) and wide receiver Tyler Grisham (knee) did not participate in Tuesday’s practice.
Those that left practice early were guard Chris Kuper (forearm), running back Ronnie Hillman (hamstring) and defensive end Jason Hunter (triceps).
Ty Warren was again excused for “a family situation,” Head Coach John Fox said.
“You’re concerned about all of them — you’d like them out there because this is how we get better,” Fox said of the injured players. “But we take a next-man-up approach, and it gives the guys behind them an opportunity.”
UPDATE: Kuper suffered a left forearm fracture during Tuesday’s practice. He is expected to fully recover within 4-6 weeks.
- Early in practice, wide receiver Andre Caldwell drew the biggest cheers of the morning from the crowd. Streaking down the middle of the field, Caldwell hauled in a bomb from quarterback Adam Weber in between the coverage of cornerback Chris Harris and safety Rafael Bush.
- Caldwell had another big catch shortly thereafter, this one courtesy of quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning dropped back, fired and hit Caldwell deep in perfect stride as the wide receiver ran across the field for a touchdown.
