  • After a week of bad injury news, the Broncos welcomed some good news: Shaquil Barrett, their backup outside linebacker who suffered a hip injury while working out on his own during the offseason,Authentic Hunter Henry Jersey, was cleared to practice and was pulled of the non-football injury list.

    The fourth-year linebacker participated in individual drills Tuesday,Authentic Max Tuerk Jersey, about three months after suffering a hip injury in the spring.

    “It’s good to have him back,Authentic Denzel Perryman Jersey,” coach Vance Joseph said. “That group looks different with Shaq out there. It’s his first day back so he’s actually day-to-day right now. But he’s looking good and feeling good.”

    The Broncos initially anticipated the worst when Barrett was hurt: that he might be lost for the season. But a visit to The Steadman Clinic in Vail quelled such fears. The injury was treated conservatively and did not require surgery.

    Barrett missed the entire training camp and will likely miss the full preseason as he works his way back.
