Shift Along the Line

Posted Nov 10, 2010

The Broncos have elected to make a change to the offensive line, moving Zane Beadles to left guard and inserting Ryan Harris back as the starting right tackle.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On the other side of the bye week, Ryan Harris said it feels like the Broncos have a shot at "a fresh start."

With that in mind, on Tuesday Head Coach Josh McDaniels mentioned a potential shift on the offensive line to increase the unit's production heading into the second half of the season.

On Wednesday, he got more specific about the move.

Harris, who suffered an ankle injury in the preseason that held him out of the first four games of the season, will make a return to the starting right tackle position. Zane Beadles will move back to the left guard position where he started the first two preseason games.

"I'm excited to be back and I know that we've worked hard to make some improvements here over the bye week to be a better team," Harris said.

Beadles echoed that excitement as he moves back to the left side of the line, where he played his entire college career.

"It's kind of getting back to something that I'm used to," he said.

So far this season, the Broncos' rushing attack ranks last in the NFL, and Kyle Orton has been sacked 21 times, tied for the ninth-highest total in the league.

The quarterback said he hopes the new group along the line can build some continuity and help improve those numbers.

"Those are good players that he have up front," Orton said. "Ryan is coming back with a lot of confidence and he is excited to get back in and we are excited to have him back in. He is a good player, he has played some good football for us in the past, and he will definitely do it in the future."

Through the first eight weeks of the season, seven players have made starts filling the five spots on the offensive line. Just two players -- left tackle Ryan Clady and center J.D. Walton -- have started every game.

McDaniels expects that to change with the new lineup that he hopes will be "more permanent."

Harris stressed the importance of chemistry along the offensive line, and he said "it shouldn't take too long" for the group to mesh.

But while the offensive linemen are confident about their new lineup, Harris said that confidence needs to transfer to the field.

"We know that nothing we say is going to get it done," he said. "The proof is going to be in what we do on Sundays, and this Sunday is another opportunity."

On Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs returned 350 tickets for Sunday's game at INVESCO Field at Mile High.
