The Broncos will have linebacker Von Miller on the field at the start of training camp, but his partner at the other outside linebacker spot isn’t quite ready to go at this point.

DeMarcus Ware will be on the non-football injury list as camp gets underway as he continues to deal with a back injury that hampered him at times last season and kept him from practicing with the team during their offseason program. Ware can’t practice as long as he’s on the list, but General Manager John Elway said that the veteran was going to handled with care whether he was on the NFI list or not.

“We’ll continue to monitor what he’s done,” Elway said, via the Denver Post. “DeMarcus was somebody that was going to be very managed through the preseason anyway.”

Coach Gary Kubiak said that Ware’s moving in the right direction to be ready for the start of the regular season. Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett gives the Broncos options of players to match with Miller until Ware is back and options to limit Ware’s workload down the road.

  1. Love D Ware, but do not think he’s got much left in that back. With out DW, Miller will not be so great, but he got he’s money (even though we know it’s not about money) 🙂

  2. The contract to Miller was a mistake. Denver is not getting to the playoffs, let alone the SB this year. Too much is missing already from last year. Miller’s contract will keep Denver down for the foreseeable future.

    When will teams stop tying up so much money in one guy.
