ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Storm damage from a huge downpour Monday has forced the Broncos to close Tuesday's training camp practice to the public.

The storm dumped more than 3 inches of rain on the team's training facility, flooding fields and causing damage.

The team posted several photos of the damage on Twitter, showing large amounts of water on the grass of the training field.

The team will practice as normal at 9:30 a.m. but it will be closed to the public.

“We are very disappointed that today’s storm damage has forced us to close Tuesday’s practice to our fans, who have shown such incredible support to the Broncos throughout the first part of training camp,” Broncos Vice President of Operations Chip Conway said.

“Our operations and grounds crews are working diligently to restore all necessary areas so that we can re-open the UCHealth Training Center to fans as soon as possible.”

Practice is scheduled to be open to the public on Wednesday, the last one before the team's first preseason game Friday night in Seattle.
