Good morning, #BroncosCountry –
Happy hump day! The Broncos return to the UCHealth Training Center for practice Wednesday morning to start preparations for the Chiefs on Sunday. Denver saw four inches of snow early Wednesday morning, but the cold never bothered the Broncos, anyway.

1. Midway through the season – where do the Broncos rank individually?

Ware seemed to enjoy the spirit of the first snow this morning when he arrived at the UCHealth Training Center:
This is no biggie for seven-year Broncos veteran and Miamisburg, Ohio, native, safety David Bruton Jr.:
