Pregame notes from Denver
By Bill Williamson
Posted by ESPN .com's Bill Williamson
DENVER -- Random pregame thoughts before to the Dolphins-Broncos game:
- It is 74 degrees and windy in Denver.
- Denver tight end Tony Scheffler is inactive for the third straight game with a groin injury. Nate Jackson will continue to play in his place.
- Broncos No. 3 receiver Brandon Stokley will play after missing one game with a concussion.
- Denver rookie running back Ryan Torain is active for the first time this season and the fifth-round pick from Arizona State is expecting to get some carries.
- Cornerback Karl Paymah starts in place of injured left cornerback Champ Bailey who will be out for a month with a groin injury.
- Rookie fullback Peyton Hillis will start in place of fellow rookie Spencer Larsen.
