BRONCOS’ BREAKOUT PLAYERS
De’Angelo Henderson, RB. After missing Sunday’s practice with a “tweaked” ankle, the rookie made his presence felt early in Monday’s practice. He took a handoff and sprinted right early in practice and finished his run by lowering his shoulder into cornerback Aqib Talib and knocking him to the ground. “For a shorter, stockier guy, he can get through narrow holes,” coach Vance Joseph said of Henderson, who is 5-foot-7, 208 pounds.
Marlon Brown, WR. The veteran who is battling for a spot on the receiving corps made one of the top grabs of training camp. As he adjusted to catch an underthrown deep pass from Trevor Siemian down the seam Monday, Brown fell to his back. But that didn’t keep him from hauling in the pass just before it hit the grass.
Brandon Marshall, LB. On the first possession of the opening team period, Marshall burst into the backfield and gobbled up a running back just as he received the handoff. Joseph has praised the performance of Marshall early in camp.
