Orlando Franklin Injury: Broncos RT Cleared To Practice

Denver Broncos right tackle Orlando Franklin, who suffered a concussion on July 28, has been cleared to return to practice, though head coach John Fox plans to keep it light for Franklin on Saturday.

Right tackle Orlando Franklin will practice "sparingly," coach John Fox said, now that Franklin has been cleared to return to the field. Franklin suffered a concussion on July 28 during the team's first practice in pads.

He was allowed to do conditioning work Friday afternoon and ran wind sprints under the supervision of a strength coach while his teammates practiced.
