Training Camp: Day 2 (Morning Report) Part I

As reports begin to filter in, I'll do my best to decipher them for you guys.

So far:
  • The Denver Post is reporting that Ebenezer Ekuban and DeWayne Robertson played defensive tackle with the first team, as well as Elvis Dumervil and Jarvis Moss (also playing defensive tackle). I think she's confused and meant to say that Dumervil and Moss played defensive end. Either way, that's a whole lot of guys that can make sacks on one defensive line.

  • The starting offensive line this morning was: (left to right) Ryan Clady, Ben Hamilton, Tom Nalen, Chris Kuper and Ryan Harris.

  • Notes on o-line: normal right guard Montrae Holland is still working privately with strength and conditioning coach Rich Tuten. Kuper (who apparently broke his hand yesterday) filled in for the injured Hamilton is an obvious replacement for Holland. Erik Pears, who started at right tackle last year, apparently is struggling early in camp.

  • Being that Kuper is filling in for Holland, it is unclear who is leading in the battle for right tackle.

  • Peyton Hillis might not have the starting fullback handed to him as predicted, Cecil Sapp is still taking the first team reps. Expect a challenge later in camp, towards the preseason games.

  • Darrell Jackson looked incredible, while Glenn Martinez was mostly quiet.
  • Marcus Thomas was handling left guard Ben Hamilton easily.

  • Josh Mallard might mess around and become a huge force on the defensive line this season.

  • Spencer Larsen has missed all of camp, thus far, for a family emergency.
There is much more to report, from morning practice, but this has been part one.
