ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A day after being pulled from practice due to a lower right leg bruise, Denver Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware missed Monday's morning practice, too.

The injury isn't significant, but the Broncos were in full pads so they simply held the 10th-year veteran out as a precaution.

"Just a leg bruise; he’ll be fine," said Broncos head coach John Fox.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who has been excused since Wednesday night after the death of his grandmother, arrived at the Broncos’ complex with about 30 minutes remaining in practice, but did not participate. The Broncos do have a walk-through practice Monday evening.

The Broncos' players have Tuesday off.

Cornerback Chris Harris was also not at practice after he traveled to see Dr. James Andrews, the surgeon who repaired Harris’ ACL. Harris said this past weekend he believed the visit with Andrews was a formality and that he expected to be cleared to participate in practice at some point this week.

The Broncos will have to move Harris off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list before he can participate in practice.

Also not practicing Monday morning were: defensive end Greg Latta (right hip), safety John Boyett (back), tight end Jameson Konz (left hip) and defensive end Chase Vaughn (right knee).
