And John Elway Thursday when asked about linebacker Brandon Marshall's protests last season and Marshall's work in the community that followed: "Brandon made a point last year, but he carried it forward, he just didn't make a stand on the field before the games, he actually went out in the community and did something, he talked to different people, talked to people in law enforcement, got involved in the community. I was proud of Brandon, because of the fact not only did he show his support for what was last year, but also he went out and did something in the community about it.''

Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway Thursday when asked about potential protests among Broncos players during National Anthem: "My stance is everybody has the right to do what they wish to do and their beliefs are their beliefs, that's why we live in this country. They have the right to display what they wish to display. One thing where we stand and I kind of stand with the Broncos is that, you know what? That's OK, we'll respect that, whatever you want to do is fine with us. The bottom line is that it can't get in the way of our main goal and that is to compete for world championships. So I just don't want that pulling away from our team. And sometimes that can pull away because, obviously it gets a lot of attention. So, therefore, the only thing I would say to our players is just make sure it's not hurting your teammate.''

From Thursday's Broncos practice … Overheard at camp: Broncos coach Vance Joseph on the injuries suffered so far in training camp -- "It's tough, as an assistant everybody says ‘it's next man up, it's your turn to play,' but as a head coach you feel responsible for keeping your team as healthy as possible. An old coach told me a long time ago … keeping a team healthy is not accident, it's purpose.''

From Thursday's Broncos practice … Today's rookie report: In two days of joint practices with the 49ers left tackle Garett Bolles, who is expected to be in the starting lineup for the Sept. 11 regular-season opener, has performed well much of the time. He's shown athleticism, the ability to recover if he is knocked off balance and the physical edge the Broncos want. He also spent some time with former Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil, now with the 49ers, and San Francisco tackle Joe Staley, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, after Thursday's practice.

From Thursday's Broncos practice … Best play of the day: The Broncos' defense has certainly made life difficult for the 49ers' offense over the last two days. Thursday, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. tipped a pass that safety Justin Simmons then intercepted. The play was also the flashpoint for a large scuffle as 49ers wide receiver Pierre Garcon went after cornerback Aqib Talib after the play.

From Wednesday's Broncos practice … Overheard at camp: Broncos coach Vance Joseph on whether or not the quarterback completion has hindered the offense in camp -- "Absolutely not, I've said this over and over again, with the two quarterbacks competing, the wide receivers, the running backs, the offensive line, those guys' jobs don't change, OK? They're blocking their guys, they're hitting the right routes, so that doesn't change other guys getting better. Obviously the QB talk is a big deal, but outside of that guys doing their job is part of it.''

From Wednesday's Broncos practice … Today's rookie report: Two of the team's rookie class flashed the speed they could bring to the offense against the 49ers defenders. Wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie got the attention of the San Francisco defensive backs early in the workout when he simply ran past the defender across from him in consecutive snaps in 1-on-1 drills. Running back De'Angelo Henderson also showed speed through the hole in team drills and had a catch-and-run touchdown on a pass from Trevor Siemian in 7-on-7 drills.

From Wednesday's Broncos practice … Best play of the day: Watching Broncos linebacker Von Miller in both 1-on-1 pass-rush drills as well as team drills against the San Francisco 49ers offense was a popular viewing spot for even 49ers fans in the bleachers. Miller consistently showed why a big part of the Broncos' success on defense will hinge on how well the Broncos can get Miller free in the rush.
