ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Cornerback Bradley Roby did not practice on Wednesday as he remains in concussion protocol, but he did participate in some on-field work with members of the strength and conditioning staff.
“That’s part of the protocol,” Head Coach Vance Joseph said. “You have testing [and] you have on-the-field movement stuff. We’ll see. If he passes that, he moves on, but again, we’re not counting time with that. We want to be smart with his health. Once he clears, he can practice.”
Before Roby exited Sunday’s game against the Chargers with the injury, he turned in one of his best performances of the season. He recorded three tackles and two passes defensed, including one that came on a key third-down stop in the third quarter. The Broncos scored a touchdown on the ensuing possession to take the lead.
“Roby played outstanding,” Chris Harris Jr. said. “He played a great game. I don’t think I played my best game, but when I don’t play my best game, I need somebody like that to pick me up. That’s what Aqib [Talib] did, that’s what Champ [Bailey] did. If Roby’s not playing his game, I’ve got to step up. That’s what you need. Roby stepped up, had an amazing game, and we need that the rest of the year.”
Linebacker Brandon Marshall (knee) and safety Dymonte Thomas (ankle) also missed practice on Wednesday.
Wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton (knee) was limited after re-aggravating his injury on Sunday.
