Warren Back in His Element

Posted Jun 13, 2012

Veteran defensive tackle Ty Warren has enjoyed having his hand in the dirt during OTAs and minicamp practices.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Ty Warren hasn’t felt this good in quite a while. After Wednesday morning’s minicamp practice, Warren said he feels no effects of the injuries that sidelined him throughout the past two seasons.

In fact, he said there's "no doubt about it" that he is the same player he was in his last full season — 2009.

“Like I said, being out there is easy," Warren said. "I can probably go out there with blinders and put my hand down in whatever position I would play in. … As far as being on the field, that’s the easy part. I’m really not concerned with that.”

While Warren feels confident in his ability to play defensive tackle at a high level, he admits he has work to do to improve both his conditioning and his understanding of the new defensive playbook prior to the start of training camp.

“My main focus right now is one, to get up to speed with the playbook, which I am as much as I can be right now and two, what I do between now and training camp is going to be really important,” Warren said. “I’m going to really focus on my conditioning and my knowledge of the playbook. Not just what I’m doing, but what everybody else is doing around me. That’s kind of how I’ve operated through the years when I’ve had my success, so these next five or six weeks are really going to be key to me.”

Warren is also having a good time taking the field with his teammates after he was forced to break down tape of everyone but himself while on injured reserve last season.

“I watched film with the guys during the year last year,” Warren said. “To be able to see my number in that film is good, so I’m just looking forward to the days when camp comes and games and all that stuff rolls around to get out there with my teammates."

Though he was unable to take the field in 2011, Warren spent plenty of time in Dove Valley, which has allowed him to ease back into the defensive rotation.

“It’s not as hard as it would have been if I wouldn’t have been here last year,” Warren said of building camaraderie within the defensive line. “I was here last year with the guys. Even though I might not have been doing the same type of lifting and things they were doing, I was still in the weight room with them. It probably would have been a little bit more difficult to try to blend in if I wouldn’t have been here, but I was here last year, so the transition is easy."

"Being out there with the fellas, it’s all great.”
