Several Denver Broncos players have visited the Medical Center of Aurora to try to raise the spirits of people who were wounded in the shooting at a Colorado movie theater.
Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme, receiver Eric Decker, guard Chris Kuper, defensive end Ben Garland, tackle Ryan Clady, linebacker Joe Mays and former Broncos safety Brian Dawkins were among those who paid visits, as passed along by the Broncos on Twitter. In addition to speaking with those who were injured, the players stopped in to thank the emergency room staff who treated the wounded.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning also placed phone calls to the hospital to speak with shooting victims.
Fifty-eight people were wounded and 12 were killed when a gunman opened fire in a theater early Friday morning during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises. The theater is about 15 miles from the Broncos’ facilities in Englewood, Colorado.
