Sanchez (thumb) has only a slight edge in the Broncos' quarterback battle, Troy Renck of The Denver Post reports.

Back and forth the rumor mill goes. Sanchez's grip on the starting job seems to change daily - fueled by a few quotes from head coach Gary Kubiak and reporters' observations from segments of practices. The truth is that clarity into the Broncos' quarterback situation won't come until depth charts are released. Nobody ever mistook Sanchez for anything more than a veteran stopgap, but given that he's the only quarterback on the roster with a NFL passing attempt, it'd be a pretty big upset if he doesn't open the season as the starter.
