Broncos will have their first full team practice of training camp at 9:30 a.m. Mountain time. There were fans in line already at 6:30 a.m., but the fields look ready and it will be Mark Sanchez who will get the first work at quarterback with the starters as he, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will divide the practice snaps evenly overall. Coach Gary Kubiak said he would have no timetable in camp to make the decision on a starting quarterback and he said the depth chart at the position could change "day to day."

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, speaking to ESPN by phone from a doctor's office as he waited to take his physical, said he expects to practice today. On the five-month contract dispute: "It definitely was a long process. After coming to the realization that it wasn't going to get done right away and that it was going to take some time, I tried my best to put it out of my mind and tried to live life normally. But it was hard with people coming up to me and asking about the contract, people texting me. It was hovering ... looming over my head for five months. In the end, I'm happy the way it turned out." He said he walked into last night's first team meeting "one second" before it started. He told Todd Bowles, "Sorry I'm late." He said some players seemed shocked to see him.
