There has been plenty of hand-wringing, about how the Denver Broncos can punish opposing defenses more for stacking their coverages toward Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.,womens Davante Adams Jersey,, both inside and outside the team facility

or one of the other tight ends,>womens Jake Ryan Jersey,The Broncos need Bennie Fowler, or one of the team's other receivers,Authentic Corey Linsley Jersey>, or the running backs to consistently make more plays. That will only increase in importance in the coming weeks with Sanders out because of a right ankle injury he suffered in Sunday night's loss to the New York Giants.,<womens Nick Perry Jersey>, or tight end A.J. Derby

the Broncos got a glimpse of some help that could be on the way. Rookie tight end Jake Butt practiced with the team for the first time since he was selected in the fifth round of the April draft.,womens Morgan Burnett Jersey,On Wednesday

" said Broncos coach Vance Joseph. "He's out of shape,womens Mason Crosby Jersey[He] looked tall, looked fast, but he's definitely getting better every day as far as football shape.", he caught the ball wellwomens Donte Moncrief Jersey,

a player many teams believed was either a late first-round or second-round pick was still on the board when the Broncos' fifth-round pick (145th overall) came up.,Butt suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in his last college game at Michigan -- the Orange Bowl against Florida State this past December.,Authentic Donte Moncrief Jersey As a result

The Broncos quickly selected the Mackey Award winner (given to the nation's best tight end) and set Butt on a course of injury rehab with the hope he could return somewhere in the middle weeks of the season.

"It was good'womens Corey Linsley Jersey his first time being out there.",> Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian said of Butt's first practice. "I had to give him a hard time every now and then

given how much double coverage defenses have directed at both.

but he would be unlikely to play against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday. It remains a possibility that he could play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 30 or the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 5.,>Authentic Jack Mewhort Jersey,Butt could offer some help in that regard. Joseph said Butt could be moved to the roster this week if the Broncos wanted
