Passing Camp concludes till June 2nd

Thursday, the Denver Broncos held their final practice of the month. The heat was up, 80-degrees up.

Second-year QB Tom Brandstater could also be on the "Hot Seat" as Tim Tebow has already passed him on the depth chart. Tebow was the #3 QB in practice, going 2-for-5 with an interception. Although the media has made a big to-do of a 1st Round Draft Pick passing a potential practice squad Quarterback, McDaniels downplayed the 'promotion.'
“We’ve been flopping them all,” he said. “The only thing consistent is that Kyle is in the first huddle.”
Kyle Orton got more reps with the first team than all the other QB's combined, going 15-of-25 with two interceptions. The first pass of 7-on-7 (thrown by Orton) was picked off by linebacker D.J. Williams, who returned it for a score. New-comer Brady Quinn seemed to have had a better session, throwing a touchdown to Tight End Dan Graham on his first attempt. Tom Brandstater only threw one pass, which fell incomplete.

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley was held out of Thursday's passing camp practice because of a shoulder injury. Rookies Demayrius Thomas and Eric Decker are also recovering from foot injuries, and have not yet participated in practice. In their absence, the other WR's stepped up, particularly Brandon Lloyd. In 7-on-7 drills, Lloyd scored three times, while hauling in some nice one-handed grabs. Holdovers from 2009, Eddie Royal and Jabar Gaffney, had solid practices as well.The team is done for the weekend, but will be back on June 2-4, and June 7-9. We'll continue to bring you coverage.
