Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after the team’s Wednesday practice that the team got out of it exactly what they were hoping.

“Our goal here is to be short and sharp,’’ Kubiak told pool reporter Peter King. “We had a really good start today, I thought. Our retention from last week was very good, and guys were very focused.’’

Although three starters — strong safety T.J. Ward, free safety Darian Stewart and guard Louis Vasquez — were limited, Kubiak said they should be good to go against the Panthers on Sunday.
“They’re listed as limited today,’’ Kubiak said. “But I think they’re right where they need to be, working toward game day. They need to get their confidence as the week goes on. But they took the step they needed to take today. . . . I would expect all three of them to play Sunday.”

The Broncos are practicing at Stanford all week before a walk-through at Levi’s Stadium on Saturday.
