ENGLEWOOD | Paxton Lynch has resumed throwing after almost seven weeks and said that he aims to return to action this season. “Yeah, yeah, for sure,” Lynch said, dismissing any notion of this being a “redshirt” year for him. The former first-round draft pick sprained his right shoulder Aug. 26 in an exhibition game against the Green Bay Packers shortly after he was officially beaten out by Trevor Siemian for the starting job.

ENGLEWOOD | Emmanuel Sanders called Denver “wide receiver heaven” after Mike McCoy returned this year for a second stint as the Broncos’ offensive architect. It hasn’t exactly been nirvana for Sanders and fellow star Demaryius Thomas so far. Blanketed by defensive backs, the veteran receivers have combined for just 38 catches and two touchdowns.
