Broncos rookie TE Jeff Heuerman making strides in ACL recovery
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Broncos rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman is making strides in his recovery from a torn ACL, the team announced via their website.

Heuerman -- a third-round pick in this year's draft -- hurt his knee back in May, but is making good progress on his way back from the injury.

"I wouldn't call them big strides," he said with a laugh on Thursday, "not literally, because they're actually pretty small strides—but I'm making progress."

Heuerman will likely miss the entirety of this upcoming season, but that hasn't put a damper in his recovery.

"Each day’s a bigger step, which it kind of sounds corny and it kind of sounds like I’m just saying that, but it really is," Heuerman said.

Broncos WR Cody Latimer vows to make an impact
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Wide receiver Cody Latimer was expected to play a role in the Broncos offense during his rookie season, but wound up catching just two passes. This year, he tells the Denver Post, he wants to make more of an impact in the passing game. 

"Last year was a disappointment to myself. I hated not being on that field," second-round picck said. "I took it as an oath of mine. This year I'm going to get on that field. I'm going to study extra and do whatever I need to do."

Latimer attended quarterback Peyton Manning's throwing camp and studied new coach Gary Kubiak's playbook in order to fit in when the action begins. 

"I didn't have the opportunity to get on the field because I wasn't doing my job," Latimer said. "This year, they'll know who I am."

Broncos deny reports of attempted Peyton Manning trade
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Broncos denied a report by Denver's 94.1 FM that the team attempted to trade quarterback Peyton Manning to the Texans over the offseason. 

The report cited two official sources, but a pair of denials were quickly issued, refuting the report. 

“The speculation is false, and your report is inaccurate,” Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth told 94.1 on Twitter. 

Manning's agent, Tom Condon also denied the report, telling Pro Football Talk, "Neither the Texans, the Broncos, or Peyton Manning ever talked to me about a trade anywhere."

Manning added a no-trade clause to his contact recently, covering the 2015 season.

Broncos DE Shane Ray: Defensive Rookie of Year is goal
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Broncos defensive end Shane Ray isn't shy about proclaiming what would make his first year in the NFL a success, saying that he doesn't see "anything less than Defensive Rookie of the Year" in his future, per NFL.com. 

Ray, the 23rd pick out of Missouri, has battled foot and toe injuries during OTAs and minicamp, but was confident in his abilities to make a difference on Denver's defense. 

"A lot of people might say that sounds cocky for you to say it right now, but I've always set high goals for myself, just like I did in college and that is something that I'm looking to prove, that I'm the best defensive rookie here," he said at the league's rookie symposium.

C.J. Anderson will enter camp as Broncos top RB
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Broncos are confident in the skills of running back C.J. Anderson, who has solidified his role as the team's No. 1 option out of the backfield with a strong spring. 

Anderson, who rushed for 648 yards in the last six games of the 2014 regular season, came into offseason camp in much better shape than the prior season and took the most snaps with the offense in OTAs and minicamp. 

"I think C.J. has worked extremely hard," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "Coming off of last year, he deserves that opportunity, and I think he's getting ready for that opportunity. But he knows he’s being pushed very hard."

Denver also has running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman in the mix.
