At my fantasy football draft tonight, I talked to a bud who is involved with Toledo's football program.

He told me that the Broncos told Eric Page that they would be bringing him back next year to give him another opportunity.

They were pleased with what they saw from him in the OTAs and the mini-camps and were pretty bummed out when he blew out his ACL right before training camp.

I'm still pissed about that....nobody has stood out in these preseason games and come close to claiming the return job as theirs....Eric Page would have made some plays in the return game and locked a roster spot down.

Page doesn't have speed to burn and he depends on his lateral movement to make plays, so I'm hoping the knee injury doesn't rob him of that fraction of a second of speed and special lateral movement he needs to have a chance in the NFL.

Now it's time for someone else to step up and make some plays in the return game to help us this season.
