ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Running back Mike Boone, who was designated for return from IR on Wednesday, had a successful first practice, according to Head Coach Vic Fangio.
"He did good," Fangio said. "It'll be interesting to see if he can put two days [together] back-to-back, but he did good. He was pleased with it, and he looked good."
Boone is eligible to play this week against the Ravens, but the Broncos would have to activate him to the 53-man roster for him to participate.
Fangio said the team hasn't decided whether Boone will play against the Ravens.
If he does play, it's unlikely he could carry a full workload as he returns from a quad injury.
"Obviously, he couldn't go out there and give you 50 or 60 plays, counting offense and special teams," Fangio said. "We'd have to be cognizant of that."
Boone was not listed on the team's official injury report, as he is not yet on the active roster.
On that official report, the Broncos did not see any change. Guards Dalton Risner (ankle) and Graham Glasgow (knee) missed practice for a second consecutive day on Thursday, while running back Melvin Gordon III (ribs/lower leg) and outside linebacker Andre Mintze (hamstring) remained limited. Mike Purcell (knee) improved to a full participant.
Fangio said Risner and Glasgow may need to practice before the game in order to play, but he did not deem it a necessity. Fangio previously said the two players were questionable for this week's game.
"Possibly, but both of them are pretty experienced," Fangio said of the need for the two guards to practice. "So, maybe not."
In Baltimore, quarterback Lamar Jackson did not practice for the second consecutive day with a back injury, but Fangio said it would not impact the team's preparations.
"No. 1, I'm pretty damn sure he'll play," Fangio said. "They would run a similar offense with the other guy [Tyler Huntley]."
