A bit of a busy Tuesday, as there are numerous Broncos news bytes to report on. The most important of them all is Elvis Dumervil. Dumervil has been cleared of all charges stemming from the gun incident in South Florida on July 14th. Although all charges have been dropped, commissioner Roger Goodell still has the power to suspend or punish Dumervil. Time will tell on whether or not that is the case. Dumervil said that he was ready "to move on with his life."
- In other news, Willis McGahee has added 10 pounds to his playing weight from last season. McGahee now weighs 245 pounds, and is at 9 percent body fat. McGahee has been seen in training camp practices utilizing his size to break through tackles.
- The Broncos open the preseason at home vs. the Bears on Thursday night. If you don't live in the Denver region, you can catch the game following it's conclusion at 11:00 on NFL Network. Peyton Manning will take 10-12 snaps in the game, equaling about two drives. It's expected that Caleb Hanie – Denver's No. 2 quarterback – will take over at the end of the first and for the entire second quarters. Brock Osweiler will then play the third, with Adam Weber playing in the fourth.
- In a bit of training camp news, the Broncos held training camp earlier today. Of the players that did not practice, Ryan Harris, Tyler Grisham, Justin Bannan, and Greg Orton were on the sidelines in shorts. Newly signed Broncos Jim Leonhard and Keith Brooking both also sat out. Leonhard is still recovering from an injury he suffered last December, while Brooking – having signed yesterday – cannot practice until Saturday, as league rules permit. Brooking was seen wearing the No. 57 jersey during stretches.
- RB Mario Fanin tore his Achilles during a recent scrimmage on Aug. 4. He is out for the season once again. He was placed on waivers. If he clears waivers, the Broncos can keep him on their reserve list for the second straight season.
- Interesting rumor, although it may not hold much truth, Matt Moore cold be traded to the Broncos, according to Rant Sports. Although I find this hard to believe, regardless of how well Ryan Tannehill has been performing in training camp, the Dolphins should be keeping Matt Moore entering the 2012 season. A fact that relates to this story is that if the Broncos are unhappy with Caleb Hanie as their backup, they could get rid of him before the season starts and not be penalized. Hanie's two-year contract does not kick in until he makes the roster. Therefore, if the Broncos trade him in the preseason, no money is owed to him.
- According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos' No.2 RB job is a race between Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno. Despite Ronnie Hillman being listed as the No. 3 back, Klis states that the immediate backup job to McGahee is a battle between Ball and Moreno.
