ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --Quarterback Paxton Lynch did not practice Thursday, but did work on some short throws in the "5-to-7-yard" range Wednesday, Head Coach Vance Joseph said.
The throws were the first for Lynch since he suffered a sprained right shoulder in the Broncos' preseason win over the Green Bay Packers on Aug. 26. The Broncos continue to exercise caution with Lynch given the nature of his injury.
"We don't have a time frame for Paxton," Joseph said. "It's his throwing shoulder, so we want to be careful with that and make sure he's right before he comes back."
Lynch and wide receiver Cody Latimer (knee) were the only Broncos who did not practice Thursday. Nose tackle Domata Peko Sr., cornerback Aqib Talib and running back Jamaal Charles all returned to practice after receiving rest days Wednesday.
