Broncos Hall of Fame RB Terrell Davis Says Living With CTE Has Him Worried

DenverBroncos.com

Former Broncos running back Terrell Davis says the prospect of living with CTE symptoms is something that worries him, ESPN reports.

But Davis, speaking Friday on the eve of his Hall of Fame induction in Canton, Ohio, said he has hope for the future of football because of the “great lengths” the game has gone to change.

“I can’t lie, we’re all scared,” Davis said, according to The Denver Post. “We’re concerned because we don’t know what the future holds. When I’m at home and I do something, if I forget something I have to stop to think, ‘Is this because I’m getting older or I’m just not using my brain, or is this an effect of playing football?’ I don’t know that.”

Davis is among five modern-era players who will be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

“Yeah, I’m scared, so I try to stay as active as possible, keep my mind as sharp as possible,” Davis said, according to The Post. “But I also know the game has gone through great lengths to change, from Pop Warner to college.”

Son of Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen – John Bowlen – Arrested for DUI in California

The son Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, John Bowlen, was arrested for DUI in California on Sunday, and TMZ has the latest on the situation:

31-year-old John Bowlen was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol in the Paso Robles area around 2 PM — and during the stop, officers determined he was under the influence of alcohol.

He was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked on 2 counts of misdemeanor DUI. He’s set to be released later this morning.

This isn’t John’s first brush with the law — the former Broncos marketing employee was arrested for domestic violence in 2015 in an incident in which he was also accused of hijacking the phone of his GF when she called 911.

During the call with the 911 operator, John claimed to be the “blood of the city” and friends with the mayor and assured officials nothing was wrong.

He was ultimately found guilty of harassment and sentenced to 2 years probation.

His father Pat still owns the Broncos — but stepped down from an active role with the team after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. His plan was to give control to one of of his children. Unclear which kid will get that job.

Broncos RB Devontae Booker to Miss Camp with Fractured Wrist

Broncos running back Devontae Booker will miss the remainder of training camp with a fractured wrist but should be ready by the start of the regular season according to Andrew Mason of MaseDenver.

Booker suffered the fracture at camp on Wednesday. The second-year back is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday and the recovery time is normally around six weeks. That timeline puts him right up against it to be ready for Week 1, but it at least sounds like he will avoid the reserve/PUP to begin the season. A fourth-round pick last year, Booker perhaps could have pushed C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles in camp, but he is now destined for a backup role.

Broncos Deal with Eagles for Offensive Lineman Allen Barbre

USA Today Sports

The Broncos sent today a conditional late-round pick to the Eagles for offensive lineman Allen Barbre according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

The Eagles had announced earlier in the day they were cutting the 33-year-old veteran but in the end were able to get something back for him.

Barbre has spent nine years in the league, with the last four seasons playing in Philly. He signed a new multi-year deal with the Eagles in 2014 but fell out of favor under new head coach Doug Pedersen. He primarily played left guard for the Eagles but can play both guards spots and right tackle and has made 36 career starts.

Denver may be the perfect place for him to finish his career given their offensive line issues. He will likely compete with Max Garcia for the right guard position.
