Brandon Stokley

Knowshon Moreno and Brandon Stokley were no-shows for Friday’s practice at Dove Valley, Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette reports. Stokley has been back-and-forth with a thigh injury all week, while Moreno’s absence comes as quite a surprise.

Moreno’s absence was wholly unexpected – he had not appeared on the injury report this week. Stokley missed practice Wednesday and was limited with a thigh injury Thursday. If he had a setback to his thigh injury this late in the week, his chances of playing Sunday will take a hit.

Schwab also notes that starting left guard Ben Hamilton was back at practice, a good sign heading into the Broncos‘ upcoming match with the Raiders, where DL Richard Seymour has been terrorizing LG’s through the first two weeks of the season.

Getting Hamilton back is huge – not a Russ Hochstein fan, but I really thought Stokley would pull through by now. In the Shanahan era, missing a Friday practice was as good as missing a game Sunday. We’ll see if that’s the case with McDaniels.

    Well everyone start Buckhalter in FF…

    Moreno will be a loss for us because I hope we run, a lot. I am excited to see the status of Orton's finger and see if he plays better without the glove. I have been pretty hard on him lately and I hope a lot of it is just the finger and glove. I am watching for a lot of improvement on Offense. Orton just needs to manage the game and keep it on the ground and let Russell make the mistakes.

    Game should be great. Show the Raiders and the league what we are made of.

    If Knowshon just tweaked it on Thursday, they probably to him to sit out today so he doesn't aggravate it. I would be very surprised if he doesn't play. Plus Fridays are just walk through days anyway.
