Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018

Von Miller (No. 5) The Super Bowl 50 MVP had a down 2017 by his standards -- just 10 sacks. Now, he is poised to be set free. With help around him, offenses won't always be able to get a double-team on Miller without paying the price.

Some corners only play one side. Some shadow, but only on the perimeter. Some can succeed only in the slot. [Chris] Harris can do all of that and at an elite level. Harris is an every-down, shutdown corner who is versatile enough to handle slot duties in nickel and dime. He's been one of the league's best corners since entering the league in 2011 and is a top-50 player in the league.

Broncos kicker Brandon McManus enters the final week of the preseason leading the NFL with 28 points scored and tied for first in made field goals (seven). He has made all seven of field goal and point-after attempts apiece.

"Pretty pleased," McManus said of his August. "I had some days in the beginning of training camp that I didn't do too well, trying to work through different things and try different things. Since the beginning of (the games), I've really hit a stride and performed pretty well."

RUNNING BACK (4):Royce Freeman, Devontae Booker, De'Angelo Henderson, Phillip Lindsay

The Broncos likely opened camp thinking they would keep three here, but Lindsay has done everything possible to make that unlikely. Lindsay is a versatile option in the offense who will get some game-day snaps and as an up-and-coming special-teams player. If they do stick with just three backs, Henderson, a 2017 draft pick, could be on shaky ground.

"Today, we continued our productive dialogue on the issues that players have raised awareness about and we remain committed to working together on solutions. In the spirit of our ongoing collaboration and progress, we will continue the confidentiality of our discussions."
