Injury Update: Anunike still out, McCray practices, Caldwell out due to flu


There are three days until the Broncos' season opener and to begin Thursday's practice, we focused on the offensive line.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Reserve WRs Bennie Fowler, Cody Latimer and Jordan Norwood were on the field as practice began, but veteran WR Andre Caldwell was out because of the flu as the Broncos continued preparations for the Ravens.

Caldwell was not the only Broncos player to fall ill Thursday, but was the only one who needed to leave.

"Actually, a couple of guys were able to push through it. Bubba was pretty sick, so we sent him home," Head Coach Gary Kubiak said.


"It really does [make you nervous], because it seems like you get one guy, and then another guy," Kubiak added. "We're on top of it; Greek [Head Athletic Trainer Steve Antonopulos] is on top of it."

DE Kenny Anunike also did not practice, but for a second consecutive day, was on the sideline taking mental repetitions.

OLB Lerentee McCray practiced. He saw limited work Wednesday as he recovers from a groin injury.
