The Denver Broncos hit the practice field at Dove Valley Wednesday morning for one last walkthrough before their first preseason game Thursday night at 6:30 MT in Dallas.
“I’m excited to watch them play,” Head Coach John Fox said. “I’m excited every day but this will be my first time watching they play live. I’m excited about it. We’ve got new faces, new guys to me, new guys to the coaching staff. We’ve got a complete new defense going in so it’s a good measuring stick to see where you are.”
The team leaves for Dallas Wednesday afternoon, but before they do, they had some loose ends to tie up in the morning practice.
Linebackers D.J. Williams, Nate Ivring and Derek Domino, cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson and defensive tackles Louis Leonard and Mitch Unrein, tight end Richard Quinn all did not practice. Williams didn’t practice the first week of camp with a thigh injury, but returned to full pads on Monday. Head Coach John Fox said that he hasn’t made the decision yet on who will be inactive for Thursday’s game.
Receivers Eddie Royal and Brandon Lloyd both practiced after sitting out Tuesday.
