Kyle Orton is still expected to be the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback for Sunday, reports the Denver Post. Orton was still limited in practice, giving Tim Tebow the first team reps. Given the statements provided in the Post's article, it appears as though the coaches don't want to tax Orton too much during practice. The anticipation for a Tebow start grows stronger.
Safety Brian Dawkins and receiver Demaryius Thomas will be out for another week as both did not practice the last two days.
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd sat out Wednesday but returned for full participation on Thursday. Whoever starts at quarterback will need to rely on Lloyd to be productive on Sunday. Fullback Spencer Larsen and receiver Eric Decker each practiced without limitations for a second day in a row.
Kicker Matt Prater, who missed last week's game, returned to practice, but in limited fashion. Steve Hauschka, who held the kicking duties last week, is still on the roster until Prater is declared fit for Sunday's game.
