Monday's Practice Quick Hits

Posted Aug 25, 2014

Big names like Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Aqib Talib stood out during practice on Monday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – After working with the Texans last week, the Broncos had the practice field to themselves on Monday as they began preparing for Thursday’s game against the Cowboys.

ROLL CALL

Danny Trevathan (knee), Gerell Robinson (knee), Wes Welker (concussion) and Jameson Konz (neck) did not participate.


PLAYMAKERS

  • Aqib Talib had a few strong plays on Monday, first with a nice pass break up during team drills and he later intercepted Brock Osweiler during 7-on-7s.
  • Omar Bolden was a force on defense as well. With good pressure on Virgil Green, he forced an incompletion. On Cody Latimer’s in-route, Bolden was aggressive and had a similar pass break up on a dart from Peyton Manning.
  • On a corner route, Latimer got the better of Jordan Sullen and pulled in a pass from Dysert.
  • Demaryius Thomas dominated during 1-on-1s. Though Tony Carter was called for holding, Thomas was still able to jump up in the back of the end zone for the score.
  • The other Thomas also had a nice day, with T.J. Ward on him in tight coverage, Julius Thomas pulled in a catch on an in-route. Despite a very physical battle with Jerome Murphy during red zone 1-on-1s, Thomas showed his toughness by sticking with his route and making a touchdown catch.
  • While Murphy was beat by Thomas, he also made some key tackles on Monday- including one on Kapri Bibbs and one on Latimer.
  • The defensive line was strong all day. The running backs were often stopped at or near the line of scrimmage by the dynamic, and deep, defensive line. In one session, Von Miller and Lerentee McCray “sacked” Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, respectively on consecutive plays.
  • The defense as a whole made a great play as Miller “sacked” Manning. No. 18 still got the pass off intended for Julius Thomas, but Rahim Moore, whose size does not match Thomas’, was able to jump up in unison with him for a pass break up.
  • Juwan Thompson, who has been a consistent threat all offseason, made a nice run around the edge during team drills. C.J. Anderson also showed his consistency while connecting with Osweiler for consecutive receptions.
  • Cameron Morrah made a great catch on a corner route and he connected with Dysert on a few occasions throughout the day.

QUICK HITS

  • During special teams drills, Rahim Moore was practicing backpedaling up the hill where fans will be sitting during training camp next season.
  • Thompson, Burse and Emmanuel Sanders were the last three players working after practice.
