Once again Graham is a monster.
I wonder who gets to claim #87?

Addendum: The practice was truncated by a half-hour as a severe thunderstorm slammed Dove Valley with lightning, thunder and hail.
… There’s not too much to note from the 10 minutes of pre-practice warmups. Dre’ Bly returned for a full day of work; wide receiver Glenn Martinez was out of uniform; no one got called in front of the team to do a pre-stretching dance. It was a very quiet start to the on-field work …
… Things haven’t been so quiet at the league’s May owners meetings, currently ongoing in Nashville, Tenn. The venue for Super Bowl XLII will be announced today, but the league has already released a medical panel’s recommendations to the league on dealing with player concussions and head injuries, the findings of which were presented to owners at the meeting.
One key tenet of the plan is to require mandatory examinations on players. As the league’s release states: Neuropsychological baseline testing will be required for all NFL players beginning this season, using a standardized test to establish an individual functional baseline. Neuropsychological testing is one tool a physician can use to assist in the management of mild-traumatic brain injury (MTBI). It cannot be used by itself to make clinical decisions. For players removed from games due to concussions, repeat testing will be done during the season to track recovery and to help decide when they can return to play. These players also will be re-tested against their baseline performance the following season at training camp.
The league will also “strictly” enforce the rules regarding full buckling of chin straps. No player will be allowed to alter the chin strap, or its attachment to the helmet …
… David Kircus was back at practice this morning. The wide receiver turned himself into Arapahoe County authorities on Monday (http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=334&storyID=6828) and was back at the Arapahoe County Justice Center early Tuesday morning to appear in court (http://cbs4denver.com/topstories/local_story_142105149.html) on assault charges before arriving at Broncos headquarters. “We’re going to let the due process take care of itself,” Head Coach Mike Shanahan said on Monday. “Like all situations, there’s two sides to every story, and obviously if he didn’t handle himself the right way, he won’t be with us. But I’m going to let the due process take care of itself first, find out exactly what the situation is and respond after all the information is in.” …
… And with that, more photos. By the way, I know there were a couple of complaints about the legibility of the script fonts I used on the photo captions in the last week, so I’m trying something different today … hope you like it. http://web1.denverbroncos.com/resources/custom/Images/blog/070522/OTA_5_11.jpg

Looks like there will be a new zebra on the field... the Safety Judge. He will have the complete NFLOSHA hand book in his pocket.

Get Kircus off this team.
I was at Dove Valley shopping at the Broncos store this am before the storms started. Saw some players on the field and the guy on the lift with the camera.... Nothing to report except spending a small fortune at the store :)
