ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Several veterans has some fun with three unsuspecting rookies Tuesday morning

Quarterback Tom Brandstater, offensive lineman Blake Schlueter and punter Britton Colquitt were all sporting mutilated haircuts, courtesy of the team's veteran offensive linemen and long-snapper Lonie Paxton. According to Brandstater, Paxson was the butcher, er, barber.

Brandstater said he hopes he will be able to shave the remaining hair the offensive linemen left him in the next day or so. Brandstater said his main concern during the impromptu haircut that occurred about 15 minutes before practice Tuesday was "to preserve my eyebrows."

"I hope my mom is still proud of me," Brandstater, said with a laugh.
