The Broncos appear to be leading the league in vaccinations.

Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver reports that the Broncos are at nearly 95 percent of players who are either fully vaccinated or have taken one shot. On a 90-man roster, “nearly 95 percent” would suggest 84 vaccinated players and six unvaccinated players.

That means the Broncos are doing a much better job than the league as a whole, where NFL Network reported that 68 percent of all players have had at least one shot. The NFL is expected to ease restrictions on player gatherings for teams that have at least 85 percent of players fully vaccinated.

The Broncos’ entire staff, including all coaches and other staffers who come in close contact with players, are reportedly either already fully vaccinated or will be before training camp opens.

Last year, COVID-19 affected the Broncos like no other team, as Denver was forced to play practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback after the entire quarterback room was found to have violated the COVID-19 protocols. That game was a disastrous 31-3 loss for the Broncos. This year the Broncos are doing what they can to avoid another COVID-19 disaster.

    Won’t matter.
    6-11 at best.

    Makes you wonder if the return of Sutton, Miller, Purcell, the additions of Darby, Fuller, Surtain, Massie, J. Williams, and Drew Lock in his 3rd (2nd year with OC) will make any difference compared to their last years 5-11 record…

  2. Congrats to them…. Hope the Pats end up even higher….
    AWESOME JOB DENVER!!!

  3. BREAKING: Rumored Cole Beasley trade to Broncos imminent, film at 11.

  4. Brittain is recommending cessation of the Vax. Sickness and death is rising. 6k dead, thousands of miscarriages, neurological diseases. The cure is worse than the disease.

    This is such unbelievable garbage. Where do you people even get these lies? You guys go on and on about “fake news” but you will just swallow whatever nonsense social media and alt-right sites feed you. Please provide one legitimate source showing that the U.K. is recommending ceasing vaccination efforts. Just one.

  6. Elbarto…..you people? What people would that be? Unbelievable garbage? Did you check it out before ranting like a lunatic? “You people” swallow anything fed to you without question. Fauci caught lying a dozen times, gov Cuomo, NY mayor et all tormenting citizens ad nauseum. I’ve seen snippets of warnings on all “your” news for a month. Anything you don’t know, like is kooks and conspiracy. Until some psycho right wing “conspiracy” like a lab in Wuhan causing a worldwide pandemic goes from underground mouth breathers to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Thanks for pitching in.

  7. Good lord, who cares! Everyone has had plenty of time to get the shots if they want them. If you get it, you’re protected right? That’s the entire purpose of getting it. Stop worrying about people who don’t want to get the vaccine, it’s none of your business.

    If someone doesn’t want to take care of their health, it’s none of my business. If someone endangers my health by refusing to vaccinate, that is very much my business. Four million people have died worldwide since last year of CV19, and the new Delta and Lambda variants will kill many thousands more. Those variants evolved in unvaccinated people. The more people refuse to take the shot, the more likely the virus will use them as hosts to mutate into ever more dangerous strains that endanger our economy and health. It’s basic science. Put simply, stupid people – like the guy above who is falsely claiming the UK is stopping vaccines – are endangering us all. Why should we risk more shutdowns and deaths just because some people are too dumb or deluded to grasp basic 7th grade biology?

    Very well said. We are a society, not a collection of people who have no effect on each other. I second your comment strongly.

  10. Far right n far left both suck. Sorry just have to throw that out there after reading comments.

    Common sense isn’t too common nowadays.

  11. Bottom line is if you choose not to get vaccinated for any reason you’re not a team player. You might not get too sick and hopefully won’t spread it. Meanwhile you have to go into isolation mode for a few weeks while your team needs you.

    I have had a friend of mine actually take a magnet off my fridge to see if it would stick to my arm where I got vaccinated. I just laughed and thought to myself it’s sad you’re so smart and successful while being so dumb. How can you not see through the fog of social media idiocy.
