ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos will return to the field Monday for the fifth day of training camp.
On Sunday, a record crowd mobbed the team’s training facility in Dove Valley to see quarterbacks Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian battle it out to be the team’s starter — and it wasn’t pretty.
The defense continues to rule at training camp. On Sunday, the team practiced in full pads for the first time in training camp and first-year coach Vance Joseph hasn’t been impressed by Lynch or Siemian.
“Did I like what I saw? Not really,” he said. “Both guys had issues today. I didn’t like what I saw today, honest. They both struggled today.
“No, I’m not annoyed. It’s not going to be based on a one-day evaluation so it’s been good, but not very good today and it was both guys.”
The Broncos are being cautious with linebacker Von Miller. He only played in a handful of reps on Sunday, with Shaq Barrett and Shen Ray out because of injuries.
The shortage of end-rushing linebackers has prompted Joseph and defensive coordinator Joe Woods to get rookie defensive end Demarcus Walker some work with with the outside linebackers.
Donald Stephenson (ankle), De’Angelo Henderson (ankle) and Jamaal Charles (rest) also were off on Sunday.
Former Broncos running back Terrell Davis was covering practice for NFL Network. Davis goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday in Canton, Ohio.
Davis admits to being a little nervous as he prepares to become the fifth Broncos player to enter the Hall of Fame.
