ENGLEWOOD https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Chris-Harris-Jr-Jersey , Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos‘ revamped offense features a half-dozen key players coming back from injuries that ended their 2018 seasons prematurely.Advantage Broncos?Right guard Ronald Leary thinks so.Like receiver Emmanuel Sanders, Leary is coming off a torn Achilles tendon.Tight ends Troy Fumagalli (sports hernia) and Jake Butt (ACL) are also embarking on comebacks, as are Pro Bowl running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) and new quarterback Joe Flacco , whose hip injury cost him his starting job last year in Baltimore when the Ravens turned over things to rookie Lamar Jackson.All six players say their injuries forced them to reflect during rehab and gave them a newfound appreciation for football.Collectively, Leary suggested that will prove a benefit as the Broncos embark on another new scheme under new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello.“All the guys you named coming back from injury are big parts of this offense,” Leary said Friday. “And especially when the game’s taken away from you with a significant injury, you appreciate everything more. Not saying we didn’t appreciate it already, but when it’s just like anything in life, when something’s taken away from you, you appreciate it even more.“I think we got a lot to bring the offense, a lot of juice. We’ve got the right mentality coming into camp. I mean, all of our teammates are happy to see us coming back.”Leary said he realized during his recovery that he has more resilience and patience than he thought, and he’s sure he’s not alone in that discovery.“With the type of injury I had there was so much down time in the beginning where you can’t do anything,” Leary said. “You’re just sitting around. So, I started reading more, just talking to my wife more, just learning more about myself and just realizing how much I appreciate the game Shaquil Barrett Color Rush Jersey , how much harder I wanted to work in rehab to get back out on that field.”Leary was cleared near the end of OTAs, but Sanders and Lindsay missed the Broncos’ entire offseason program. Both were back on the field this week, however, when the Broncos became the first NFL team to open training camp.“Moving around, feeling no pain, feeling good and feeling like myself,” Sanders declared. “I know a lot of people didn’t expect that, so it’s just a testament of all the hard work I put in, all the pain that I went through to be standing here.”Although Sanders is limited, he’s building a rapport with Flacco by being on the field during camp instead of the sideline .“Flacco is a baller,” Sanders said. “I think things are going to be OK. I think we’re going to be OK. I like the way he spins the ball. I think we will have a lot of success this year. … I call him ‘Pretty Boy’ Flacco. That’s his name. He’s just smooth.”Much like Peyton Manning did in 2012 after missing an entire season in Indianapolis following a series of neck fusion surgeries, Flacco is coming to Denver with a shot at resurrecting his career following an injury.“There is an energy about coming here and an excitement that I feel about coming to this new team and getting another chance to be a starting quarterback in this league,” Flacco said.General manager John Elway said, “Any time you get traded midway in your career or two-thirds of the way through your career, you’ve got something to prove.”“Yeah, there’s no doubt,” Flacco agreed. “Listen Brian Dawkins Jersey , I think I’ve got a lot left in the tank. And I feel like I can do a lot more than I’ve shown in my 11-year career. I’m excited about that.”And starting his first training camp outside Baltimore, Flacco said, “I feel like a little kid.”So does Lindsay, who hated having to watch fellow running backs Devontae Booker and Royce Freeman get carries while he continued his rehab during OTAs.“I like the grind. I like being tired. I like the sweat, the blood, the tears,” Lindsay said. “That’s what I’m here for.”NOTES: Alexander Johnson was the first of many ILBs who filled in for Todd Davis, the team’s leading tackler last season, who is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a partial tear of his right calf. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — First, Keenan Allen disses Denver. Then, JuJu Smith-Schuster says the Steelers beat themselves.Seems nobody wants to give the resurgent Denver Broncos any credit, and that’s just fine with them.“This defense is built to stop anybody in this league,” safety Darian Stewart said in the aftermath of Denver’s second straight win over a team that hadn’t lost since September.Over the last two weeks, the Broncos (5-6) have snapped six-game winning streaks by the Chargers (8-3) and the Steelers (7-3-1) despite allowing a whopping 1,006 yards and watching Pittsburgh and Los Angeles outgain them through the air by a staggering 425 yards.They’ve clawed their way back into the AFC playoff conversation, however https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Demarcus-Ware-Jersey , by piling up seven takeaways and committing zero turnovers.Allen refused to give any credit to his AFC West rivals after Philip Rivers threw for 401 yards and the Chargers controlled the clock for nearly 38 minutes two weeks ago in a 23-22 last-second loss to the Broncos.“No, I don’t think they played well at all,” Allen snapped. “We dominated the game. Turnovers, we gave them some points and that’s what happened. They suck.”The Steelers dominated the clock Sunday, holding the ball for 35 minutes to Denver’s 25, and Ben Roethlisberger threw for 464 yards, including a 97-yard touchdown toss to Smith-Schuster that put Pittsburgh ahead 17-10 before the Broncos turned a Chris Harris Jr. interception and a fumble recovery by Stewart into 14 points for a 24-17 win.“One thing is if we get beat tremendously, I’ll take that. I’ll take that to heart that we lost because they were a better than us,” Smith-Schuster said after his 13-catch, 189-yard afternoon. “But … I felt we beat ourselves.”Although Will Parks and several other Broncos dared mention the word playoffs after their latest victory, you can bet coach Vance Joseph will have none of it when they return to work Wednesday after earning an extra day off.“I’m proud of the win. Our team showed grit again and resilience to overcome adversity,” Joseph said Monday. “But again, defensively especially, there’s too many big plays. It’s unacceptable to give up that many big plays each week. A 97-yard touchdown in single high (safety) coverage, we can’t do that.“So, I’m very pleased that we won the football game but disappointed in the lapses that we have each week, and it’s got to stop. It’s got to stop for us to finish the season the right way.”That said Emmanuel Sanders Color Rush Jersey , Joseph, whose coaching roots are on defense, acknowledged that in today’s game where college spread concepts such as run-pass option plays, jet sweeps and Wildcat snaps are all the rage, he’s had to adjust his thinking on what constitutes good defense.“You do because they’re going to make yards. Yesterday, we saw more RPOs from Pittsburgh than I’ve seen in five years from that team,” Joseph said. “But that’s the league now. It looks like run but it’s pass. It’s almost impossible to defend, so you have to be a great tackling team and just keep the deep ball from beating you, get off the field on third downs and take the ball away. That’s the league, that’s where it’s going.”Although the Broncos are allowing more than 500 yards a game the last two weeks, they’ve only yielded 19.5 points with seven takeaways and no turnovers.“If you can play great red zone defense and hold them to field goals, take the ball away, that’s the key,” Joseph said. “Because the yardage, you have to kind of ignore it. And that’s tough for us to do. I mean, 1,000 yards for our defense in two weeks Gary Zimmerman Jersey , that’s tough. But 19.5 and seven takeaways, you’ve got to take it and be happy about it, right?”LEAP LOOPHOLEThe league eliminated the running-start leaps on field goals and extra points this year like the one Justin Simmons had to salvage a win at New Orleans in 2017. Now, the defender can only jump if he’s on the line of scrimmage and he can’t touch the linemen.Simmons is the rare athlete who can do just that as he showed Sunday by blocking Chris Boswell’s 48-yard field goal attempt.“We actually had one against Baltimore that was illegal” Joseph said of Simmons’ running leap that wasn’t whistled.His latest one was textbook.“He’s a freak athlete,” Joseph said. “He can jump, he’s got a great vertical and great timing.”SALVAGING SHELBYAfter getting cut seven times by the Raiders, Jets and Cowboys, nose tackle Shelby Harris — who had the game-saving interception with 63 seconds left Sunday — has finally made a name for himself in Denver.“I’ll tell you what, my first spring here when I watched Shelby work out, I told (defensive line coach Bill) Kollar, ‘He’s got about a week before we cut him,'” Joseph said. “He was that bad that spring and I guess the light came on and the guy’s been playing really good football for a year and a-half since I’ve been here.”
