Tom Nalen

Training camp is over, but practices continue at Dove Valley, with several Broncos veterans returning to the practice field on Monday.

Center Tom Nalen, who sat out most of training camp with knee pain, finally returned to practice. After undergoing knee surgery in June, Nalen started training camp before sidelined with pain in his bursa sac. Veteran free agent acquisition Casey Wiegmann performed well in his absence.

All Pro cornerback Champ Bailey returned to the practice field as well, having sat since Aug. 5 with a hamstring injury. Fourth year CB Domonique Foxworth started in two preseason games while Bailey was sidelined.

Finally, backup strong side linebacker and special teams ace Louis Green returned to practice after suffering a scary concussion and neck injury in the Week One preseason game at Houston. Nice to see #52 back on the field, fighting for his roster spot.

The Broncos will face the Green Bay Packers in the ever-important third preseason game on Friday.

Good to see these guys back… hopefully they’re able to stay that way. I’m most concerned about Nalen being ready for the opener, but this is definitely a good sign.

    It i9s great to see all of those guys back, but I hope that Nalen is not trying to push it so he can get to the season opener. I would much rather him not play until week 2 then have him go out before hi is ready and mess himself up again. I have a feeling this is his last season as it is, and it would be a shame to see him end his career on IR.

    Really glad to see Champ back in the mix. I really think he is going to have his best season

  • Trent

    Champ is the man

    Can’t wait to see what the D can do after Shanny decides on a MLB and Champ returns. Should be pretty darn good!

  • Tyson

    It’s bound to be better than last year!
