Broncos Expected To Add Quentin Saulsberry To Practice Squad

The Denver Broncos expect to finalize their practice squad on Monday afternoon, as the team plans on signing offensive lineman Quentin Saulsberry.

Salusberry was cut by the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, and is expected to end up with the Broncos. Saulsberry will turn 24 in Oct., and was signed as an undrafted free agent shortly after the NFL Draft.

During his senior year at Mississippi State, Saulsberry started 13 games, nine at guard and four at center, showcasing his versatility. Saulsberry's play was strong enough to be named All-SEC Honorable Mention by the Associated Press.

Saulsberry, as the Denver Post's Mike Klis points out, will make $5,700 per week as a member of the practice squad.

We'll see if Saulsberry forces his way onto the active roster.

Broncos Defense Has 'A Lot Of Work To Do,' Says John Fox

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox shared that he's still not entirely satisfied where his defense is as a whole when complimented about the progress of his defensive line on Wednesday on The Dave Logan Show.

"Well like everyone out there we have room for improvement. I don't think as a coach you are satisfied. I like the progress we have made. I like our team and how they get along with each other. Jay Rodgers [defensive line coach]...we even had a change in coaches and I think he has done an outstanding job with that group and they are gelling and getting more confidence as we move along."

Fox did go on to say that the first team defense was "better" against San Francisco compared to the previous game and that his second stringers "responded perfectly" to some formations they hadn't seen much of. Still, Fox realizes that everyone, including the coaching staff, still needs to continue to make strides.

"As coaches we didn't help as much as we could have cause we don't game plan in this stage. All in all we've got a lot work to do and I'm sure the other 31 coaches in the league believe they have to do that with their teams."

While most of this is standard coach talk, it's encouraging to see that Fox isn't content with a few good performances by his starters. The second-year Broncos head coach realizes that he must have every one of his defenders fully prepared with the high injury rate of today's NFL.

Ryan Lindley To Start Vs. Broncos; Kevin Kolb, John Skelton Will Not Play For Cardinals

The Denver Broncos will likely not be seeing the Arizona Cardinals' regular-season starting quarterback when they play their final preseason game on Thursday.

Both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are expected to sit out for Arizona, via Kent Somers of, leaving third-string rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley to start.

This leaves Rich Bartel as Lindley's backup against Denver. The Cardinals want to see how Lindley and Bartel get some reps, while protecting Kolb and Skelton from injury.

Arizona still has not made an announcement as to who will start at QB in Week 1 of the regular season, with Somers reporting that the team still hasn't made a decision.

Thursday's game is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. MT at University of Phoenix Stadium.
