Mason's Blog-Minicap Day 2
Anyhow, back to football after that detour into fashion and style, with some minicamp notes:
… Just like Monday, the Broncos concentrated on specific situations, working in the two-minute drill and at the goal line, among other scenarios. The team also continued to shuffle defensive linemen; Kenard Lang, Jarvis Moss, Sam Adams, Alvin McKinley, John Engelberger, Ebenezer Ekuban, Gerard Warren and Elvis Dumervil were among the linemen who saw first-team work in various packages …
… Ekuban worked at tackle during some nickel- and dime-package plays. Ekuban lined up on the inside through much of the final three games of the regular season last December …
… Wide receiver Brandon Stokley took another step forward in his recovery, seeing some action in seven-on-seven work …
… New father Nick Ferguson was back at work on Tuesday and was called upon to lead the pre-practice breakdown after missing Monday’s session for the birth of his first son. “I have another mouth to feed now, so you’ll probably see another type of Nick Ferguson — more aggressive,” he said.
“Nick, he’s going to experience the greatest thing in the world,” safety John Lynch said. “He’s just real excited right now and should be. It’s the greatest thing that I’ve been through, and he’s getting that experience for the first time. We’re all real happy for him.”
… Brandon Marshall injured his quadriceps muscle during individual work in Tuesday’s session and did not return, but said the injury should not prevent him from being on the field when training camp begins …
… Rookie offensive tackle Ryan Harris went through a full morning’s work after being knocked to the ground and treated on the field Monday …
… Eddie Moore was absent Tuesday. “It was a situation I can’t get into right now, but it’s an excused absence,” Head Coach Mike Shanahan said. Warrick Holdman moved over to first-team strongside linebacker in his place.
… Ben Hamilton was not at practice Tuesday. Chris Myers filled his spot on the first team at right guard …
… Cornerback Lamont Reid, offensive lineman Doug Nienhuis, tight end Tony Scheffler and wide receiver Rod Smith also sat out Tuesday’s work.
