Scenes from a Practice: Dec. 15

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The last thing the Broncos wanted to see was three of their top six defensive backs missing practice due to injuries with the AFC’s top passing game looming.

Thus, the sight of cornerback Andre’ Goodman and safety Brian Dawkins going through the paces at the start of practice was welcome. Both missed practice Wednesday because of lingering effects from a concussion and a neck strain, respectively.

Only safety David Bruton missed practice; he has been sidelined the last two days with an Achilles tendon injury but was on the practice field, watching without his helmet.
