It cost them a few more hotel rooms and a few more seats on the plane, but the Broncos are all together this week.
When they were last on this stage two years ago, the Broncos ruffled some feathers by leaving their players who were on injured reserve back in Denver until Thursday of Super Bowl week.
One of the guys who got left behind was cornerback Chris Harris, who was on IR then with a torn ACL.
“That’s what you want,” Harris said, via Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post. “Nobody is left behind, and everybody is going to be there together.”
Linebacker Von Miller and defensive end Derek Wolfe also had short weeks then, but the Broncos decided to bring the entire roster with them Sunday.
So while left tackle Ryan Clady, defensive end Kenny Anunike, safety Omar Bolden, safety David Bruton Jr., tight end Jeff Heuerman, tackle Ty Sambrailo, and wide receiver Kyle Williams won’t be able to contribute on the field, they at least get to be part of the team.
