DeMarcus Ware held out of rainy practice
By Jeff Legwold
DENVER – In a driving rainstorm for much of their 2 1/2-hour practice Wednesday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Denver Broncos held defensive end DeMarcus Ware out of the workout.
Ware suffered a bruised lower right leg Sunday in the team’s practice at the stadium and has not practiced since. Broncos head coach John Fox continues to say Ware’s injury is not significant, but field conditions were slippery in an uncharacteristic storm that has dumped rain on the Denver area for the past two days.
Ware did some conditioning work on the side, including sprints.
The Broncos also held out defensive end Chase Vaughn (right knee), defensive end Greg Latta (right hip), safety John Boyett (back) and linebacker Shaquil Barrett (ankle). Cornerback Louis Young left the practice with a groin strain.
With Vaughn and Latta having missed several days of practice, the Broncos signed two defensive linemen Wednesday – Will Pericak and Cody Larsen, both defensive tackles – to bolster their numbers. Pericak played in college at Colorado and had been at some of the offseason workouts as a tryout player.
The Broncos' roster is now at 89 after the two signings.
