The Denver Broncos took the practice field for the first time since defeating the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon by the final score of 26-16. They were getting prepared for Super Bowl XLVIII practicing in the temperature of just 10 degrees with fresh snow on the ground. According to the Chicago Tribune, the projected weather forecast for Super Bowl Sunday is reported to be a high of 40 and a 30 percent chance of rain or snow. But reports are saying the big game could be played anywhere from Friday, January 31st to Monday February 3rd if there is in fact a major snow storm.
Good news for the Denver Broncos is their half back Knowshon Moreno was at practice Thursday afternoon after injuring his chest/ribs last Sunday in the AFC Championship Game. Moreno would be the game-high rusher with 14 carries for 59 yards, 4.2 yards per carry. Corner back Tony Carter would return to practice as well after what initial reports said he was concussed, but head coach John Fox later said he had a pinched nerve and was ready to go.
Everyone was at practice besides defensive tackle Mitch Unrein who injured his knee in the AFC Championship Game. Denver will resume practicing on Friday and Saturday before heading out to New Jersey on Sunday.
