Broncos trio passes fitness test, coach confirmed
Broncos defensive coordinator Dom Capers said Thursday that running back Willis McGahee passed the team’s physicals. He is on pace for an even better rookie season, and he’s got some new toys on offense with Peyton Manning on the sidelines.
« He’s been a lot more explosive than I thought he would be, » Capers said of McGahee. « He’s more athletic. »
Th베스트 카지노e Broncos were hoping to do better in their first regular-season game without Manning, but they came out firing against the Bears on Monday night.
McGahee is averaging 12.2 yards per carry, including 4.8 yards per carry in the Broncos’ last four wins. His 2.6 yards-per-carry mark was just below the 8.6 mark he posted before the bye.
He also had two receptions for 17 yards during the Broncos’ 30-10 victory over the Bears in Chicago.
McGahee is averaging 19 carries a game, including the 5.3 a 베스트 카지노game he had last season, on 553 yards receiving, 1,099 yards rushing and four touchdowns. He’s been a solid member of the Denver offense, a top-five quarterback.
« Willis McGahee hasn’t rushed for 200 yards in any of our games, but he’s still getting into the end zone, » Capers said. « And he’s not out there just trying to be a big-play receiver. He’s pretty smart and he’s not afraid to make the plays himself, so those are two great attributes.
« The whole offense, from his perspective, is really getting going. »
The last time the Broncos did this kind of thing was against the 49서산출장마사지ers in Super Bowl XLIV. Manning was benched for the game in the fourth quarter after a poor throw from 49ers safety Eric Reid, who was picked off. But that was before Manning’s groin injury in the Broncos’ win over the Giants in the opener.
