Veteran defensive players Champ Bailey, Marcus Thomas and Renaldo Hill made their 2009 practice debut Saturday afternoon.

The three players had started training camp on the active-physically unable to perform list. The trio was seen running sprints — and being timed — by the team’s training staff Friday night.

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is also back on the practice field, and smiling, after taking the Friday evening session off. He has written “Beast Ego” in black marker on the back of his white Broncos-issued shirt he is wearing under his shoulder pads and jersey.

I would love to know why bailey was held out yesterday. If it was just a decision to hold out a vet and give him a little more rest, then that's fine. If on the other hand, If he really did fail his "Conditioning Test", well, then that's a problem.

I think it's safe to say that he as well as the other players mentioned didn't pass the conditioning test.

Not sure he could pass the conditioning test two days after failing it.

When McD talked about the three players on PUP, he talked about 'injuries'.....which could mean anything, but more likely than Champ failing a conditioning test.

I think you're right about holding out a vet.

I'll put it to you this way, yesterday after practice I watched Champ, Hill, and Thomas run 50 yard sprints. They ran from the South Endzone to the 50 yard line. I heard Champ yell after Hill's sprint, what was the time... 6 something was the response.

Good to see them back. Hopefully Thomas can grab one of those 3 spots on the line.

JMO, but the only reason a freak like Champ would fail a conditioning test is because he chose to half ass it... Now that either shows a lack of commitment during the off season or a lax attitude toward the test and getting into training camp on time.

Either way I don't like the sound of that...

Hopefully there is more to it.

It wasn't about holding a vet out. Why would they be holding a vet out on day one without letting them practice at least once? With Brandon Marshall coming off of injury yesterday afternoon was holding a vet out. Those three were running after practice for a reason. The only way this could have been more funny is if the three of them were pushing a sled a la Montrae last year.

McBean's spot hopefully. Sorry, I just don't see anything from that guy that I like. I'd love to see Marcus Thomas get in there and dominate.

I just talked to your Aunt... She is MUCH more worried about this team than I am.

Since he was seen doing timed sprints after yesterday's practice, it seems clear he was held out for either not passing it the first time, or not being able to take the conditioning test the first time.

Now, he could have had a tight hamstring or something the first time and didn't run full out, or any number of things. Even if he failed it the first time, it doesn't mean it's a problem.

True but it's because she's a San Dirgo fan :wiggle:

Without seeing the first conditioning test, or knowing if he has any nagging injuries, it is impossible to reach 'conclusions'. ****, he could have slipped during the first test for all we know.

Could be... just seems to me that any type of injury that would keep him from finishing the test wouldn't heal in 24 hours. Possible, just not likely.

I just don't like the thought of him slacking for something as simple as this.

So do you think Champ failed the conditioning test on Thurs?

Well he has certainly been used to major VIP treatment in recent years. There is always the chance that Champ got very used to cruising his own way the past few seasons. His natural ability has simply allowed that sort of attitude. This whole thing could be by design to push even the elite players a bit.
