It’s the preseason home opener!
Peyton’s Playin’ Time
Peyton Manning’s preseason debut was brief against the Bears – only one series – but expect No. 18 and the Denver Broncos’ starting offense to last an entire first quarter…and maybe a little more. Same goes for the Broncos first-team defense.
Cornerback Drayton Florence is expected to replace first-teamer Tracy Porter (hamstring, illness). DT Kevin Vickerson is recovering from a concussion and will not play. Neither participated in Friday’s final practice, a light practice ahead of Saturday’s game. Head coach John Fox says rookie running back Ronnie Hillman (hamstring) is a game-time decision.
Aside from Porter and Vickerson, here are the players who did not participate in Friday’s walkthrough:
LB Keith Brooking (hamstring), S Quinton Carter (hamstring and knee), DE Jason Hunter (triceps), G Chris Kuper (forearm), S Jim Leonhard (knee), and LB Danny Trevathan (ankle).
