When Denver Broncos players arrive at training camp, are they better than last year?
Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch and running back Latavius Murray both started camp on injured reserve, but neither is expected to play in the opener against the Buffalo Bills.
The team is expected on Sunday to release veteran guard Dan Williams and safety Jeron Johnson, who missed training camp after suffering a season-ending knee injury last season.
Coach Vance Joseph said he’s not worried about the depth at the position.
Lynch and Murray both played in 13 games last season, with Lynch totaling 478 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.
Murray, a first-round draft pick in 2016, rushed for 1,089 yards and seven touchdowns last season for the Arizona Cardinals.
Murray and Lynch were drafted as the Broncos first- and second-round picks in the 2016 draft.
The Broncos have a lot of talent in the backfield.
They drafted running back Ronnie Hillman in the second round last year.
He had 1,096 rushing yards in the season opener against Seattle.
He rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown in that game.
