Royal Back At Practice

Posted Oct 12, 2011

Wide receiver Eddie Royal returned to practice and hopes to play against Miami after the bye.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Eddie Royal has missed the last three games due to a groin injury he suffered against the Bengals in Week 2, but it appears the wide receiver is close to returning.

Royal practiced today for the first time since sustaining that injury and he was happy to be back on the field with his teammates.

"It's been a long time since I've been out there with the guys," Royal said. "Just getting in the huddle and being around the team, it was a good feeling."

Royal's recovery will be aided by the conveniently-timed bye week as the team now has some time off before prepping for a Week 7 matchup with the Dolphins.

"It's perfect timing for me, right around the time that I want to get back," Royal said. "I got out there today, and I got to see how I felt, and I get the rest of the week to heal up and get ready for Miami.

"The bye couldn't come at a better time." 

Royal's potential return also provides another weapon for Tim Tebow, who is set to make his first start of the season against the Dolphins.

After watching Tebow engineer a second-half comeback last week, Royal is eager to play alongside the new signal-caller.

"I'm looking forward to (Tebow) being out there," Royal said. "He went out there and made some plays for us and got us back into the game. He's a playmaker, and I look forward to playing with him."

And Royal isn't the only receiver hoping to return to game action in Miami. Demaryius Thomas is continuing to work his way back from a finger injury and could return to practice next week.

Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy said he's looking forward to finally having his full arsenal of wideouts available in the near future.

"We're slowly getting some guys back and getting everyone healthy," McCoy said. "Early on, we took the big hit, but that's all part of the game, and it'll be nice to get everybody back."

More healthy receivers means more dynamic options, but McCoy knows when the time comes, the offense is going to have to find a way to spread the ball around and keep everyone involved.

"What we're going to have to do is systematically put the guys in the right place who we think are best at doing what they do, and when you have guys like that-there's only one football," McCoy said. "They're going to have to be unselfish and understand that there's a rhyme or reason for every play we're going to be running, and there's going to be a reason why you're in certain spots."
