Afternoon update …

… Three players listed as injured fully took part in Wednesday afternoon’s practice: defensive end Tim Crowder (ankle), safety John Lynch (ankle) and cornerback Karl Paymah (concussion). Crowder and Paymah each missed Week 1 with their injuries, which were incurred in the preseason …

… Defensive tackle Sam Adams sat out the practice, per coach’s decision. He also missed time for the same reason last week but played in the win over Buffalo …

… Tight end Stephen Alexander (calf) and cornerback Domonique Foxworth (ankle) did not take part in practice. A determination on the probablity of their Sunday participation will be made Friday, when teams have to list their injured players as probable, questionable, doubtful or out …

… Guard Ben Hamilton (concussion) and offensive tackle Ryan Harris (back) also did not practice and are already ruled out for Sunday …

… Four Oakland Raiders did not practice: quarterback Josh McCown (foot), center Jeremy Newberry (hamstring) and cornerback Duane Starks (groin). Linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba also missed practice with a foot injury and is the only Raider listed as “out” for Sunday’s game …

… The Broncos added a captain — Rod Smith. Head Coach Mike Shanahan said after the practice that the team’s full-time captains — Champ Bailey, John Lynch, Jay Cutler and Tom Nalen — came to him and said that Smith should remain a team captain, even though he is on the physically unable to perform list. So whenever Smith returns to uniform, the new “C” patch on the chest will await …

… More to come later. Wednesday is always the busiest day of the week from a news-gathering perspective. There’s the two press conferences beginning at 11:50 a.m. MDT, along with a concurrent, informal session on the practice field with assistant head coach/defense Jim Bates. There’s the presence of more cameras and reporters than any other day; numerous outlets — particularly TV stations from the Colorado Springs/Pueblo market and smaller newspapers from around the region — only come to the facility on Wednesdays. With more cameras and reporters in the locker room, more players talk; today, we gathered quotes from Domenik Hixon, Dre’ Bly, Brandon Marshall, Jamie Winborn, Elvis Dumervil, Nick Ferguson, Daniel Graham and assistant head coach/offense Mike Heimerdinger, among others.

That means spending a good portion of the afternoon sifting through interviews, transcribing quotes and saving the video interviews to a hard drive so the soundbites can be used throughout the week. There’s plenty on the site already with video of the afternoon’s press conferences, but much more to come both tonight and throughout the days to come …

… More to follow later in the blog; until then, vaya con Dios.

Hopefully Tim and Karl will be able to play. With Foxworth likely being out, we need Karl to come in and play nickel for us. Shoate was just. . . yeah. Interested to see what Tim can do to help the pass rush, and most importantly improve this run defense. I hope he gets to play.

Thanks for the read, Skinny.

That's cool they still want Rod as Captain.

I don't understand Hamilton's situation. That was far more serious that what we seemed to be told.

That's how it usually is with most teams in regards to valuable players on the team. We're only told so much. There have been numerous reports, one importantly from Wabbit on the Mane who talked to some colleagues in Boston who said Hamilton's injury could be similar to what sidelined Bruschi for a while. Bruschi had a stroke, which is way worse - but it's extremely unfortunate that Ben hasn't been able to recover from this yet.

It's been a long time. It took a while for Bruschi to get some of those motor skills back, and the ability to play football. I think Ben's in the same boat. He's having a hard time getting back into playing mode. Really unfortunate, because Ben's a good lineman, and has arguably been one of the best over Lepsis and Nalen over the past few years. He's beaten by the bull rush, but he's a solid overall guard, and one of the most underrated in the league.

I have no problem with Myers and him getting some groom time, but Hamilton is a definite upgrade over him. This is a serious worry for the team, and Ben cannot be rushed back.

Concussions are what they are, top....


....I thought you, of all people, would know that the best.


Aren't you still recovering?

:ahhhhh:


The doctor told Shanny "no practices" for two weeks, and he'd be re-evaluated.

I see the positive of this, as being that O-T-J training is the best, and so far, so good.

this could have been one fo those freak accidents which was not big, but may never heal...

hamilton is tough, but i would not be shocked that he may never play again and has severe migranis for the rest of his life...

i sure hope im wrong about this, but sometimes things just dont click back like they should...
