Broncos' Invesco Field practice session a success

Rookies get new hairdos, Tebow electrifies 20,000 fans at Invesco Field practice

Rookie hazing at it's best - bold hair styles. The Broncos veterans got a big kick out of enhancing the rookies' appearance on Friday, cutting the rookies hair at uneven lengths. Crazy hair cuts has become a Training Camp tradition, and not even Tim Tebow could escape the fandimoniam. The fans that cathered at Invesco Field got a good laugh out of the new dos, meanwhile, Tebow got more cheers than the whole team. From entering the field to throwing a perfect touchdown to Demaryius Thomas, chants for Tebow kept on coming. The rookie Quarterback was on fire, throwing for multiple touchdowns, and rushing for another. The other QB's, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn, both got more snaps under center, playing conservatively, and neither threw any interceptions, however, neither of them received the reception or approval from the fans that Tebow did.

The injuries keep on coming
The Broncos have already lost running backs Knowshon Moreno (hamstring), Correll Buckhalter (back), LenDale White (undisclosed); linebacker D.J. Williams (undisclosed); center Dustin Fry (undisclosed); guard Chris Kuper (ankle); nose tackle Chris Baker (undisclosed); and outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil (pectoral muscle) and Jarvis Moss (hand) to injuries. Saturday night, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas were added to the injured players list. Decker was seen on the sideline with athletic trainer Steve Antonopulos, Decker's shoes and socks were
removed and he was taken to the locker room. Shortly thereafter, fellow Wide Receiver Thomas came limping off the field after landing awkwardly on his ankle. After having his ankle looked over on the sideline, Thomas left the practice field, as well.

The evening practice was the most fun I've had in a long time, but as I decided to enjoy the scrimmage over jotting down notes, I don't have much to report. However, you can check out some photos from today's practice at Invesco Field on our facebook page!
