Broncos' Mark Sanchez: Aided by experience
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez's experience figures to give him an edge in the Broncos' starting quarterback competition, The Denver Post reports.

Sanchez, who had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his non-throwing hand's thumb earlier this month, participated in seven-on-seven and positional drills along with rookie Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian during OTAs this week. Although those two were also able to go through team drills, something Sanchez was unable to do, Sanchez's previous experience as an NFL starter bodes well for him going into training camp. That's when the Broncos' quarterback competition is expected to heat up, and despite not having started a Week 1 game since 2012, Sanchez's veteran status gives him the early leg up on Lynch and Siemian.

Broncos' Brandon Marshall: Limited by offseason surgery on finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marshall has been limited in OTAs due to offseason surgery on his right index finger, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Marshall sustained the injury while causing Jamaal Charles to fumble during a Week 2 victory, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Brushing off the concern, Marshall proceeded to notch 100-plus tackles for the second season in a row, to which he added two forced fumbled, 1.5 sacks, and one interception in 16 games. Even if he remains limited through OTAs and mandatory minicamp, the minor procedure isn't expected to impact his activity level once training camp rolls around in late July.

Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Slims down for 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Anderson currently weighs just over 220 pounds, after reporting to OTAs at 240 pounds last season, ESPN reports.

The stocky running back started slow in 2015, only to become the most effective part of Denver's offense by the playoffs. A lighter, quicker Anderson could bode well for a faster start, but he'll also be facing stiffer competition than last season. Last year's leading rusher, Ronnie Hillman, returns, and fourth-round pick Devontae Booker's skill set appears tailor-made for Denver's one-cut scheme. Anderson should see more consistent production in 2016, is almost certain to share plenty of carries.

Broncos' Kapri Bibbs: Gets positive reviews at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibbs flashed some big plays at OTAs on Tuesday, the team's official site reports

Bibbs faces an uphill climb toward making the roster, let alone seeing playing time. The Broncos dressed just two backs for much of last season. C.J. Anderson and fourth-round pick Devontae Booker are all but assured roster spots and head coach Gary Kubiak has voiced a desire to incorporate a fullback into the offense. Bibbs' only chance may be to best last year's leading rusher, Ronnie Hillman.

Broncos' DeMarcus Ware: Sits on the first day of OTAS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ware (back) did not participate in practice on Tuesday, the team's official site reports

Head coach Gary Kubiak reported that the decision to sit Ware was precautionary. With Ware out and Von Miller away while his contract is negotiated, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray saw extended reps. Expect both Barrett and Ray to see plenty of time in Ware's stead this season as the veteran is used more as a situational pass rusher to maximize his impact.
