    Hmmm. The running back coach is the same as last year-Chick Harris.

    And at least last year when I heard Harris speak and show game film, he is not coaching that the RBs are supposed to dance around in the backfield. In fact, last year, he was saying the same thing that Kubiak is saying--that with the zone blocking, the RB is supposed to get one cut and go downfield.

    Early in the year--its hard to break that instinct, I guess.

    If his knee was really completely healed and they are worried about him aggravating the knee in practice, how is his knee supposed to hold up for a full season wihtout getting aggravated? I understand being cautious about an injury, but the coaches are either being overly cautious or there is something really wrong with his knee. It's been 5 months since the surgery now and he is just now starting to run? :confused:

    I think his knee has been bad for years and Capers had him play on it. Sounds like the new crew want to give him a chance to be totally healthy.

    Too bad after last year he is still inexperienced. One more guy that should have gotten more playing time.

    That "told a few different things" = better coaching. I hope.

    I wouldnt mind seeing Vernand Morency get a start or 2, but lets hope DD can get back healthy and show the NFL what he can do with a good o-line

    Patience is a virtue and IMO let the knee heal awhile after all we still got him for the season no turning back now. But what I really see as an advantage now in practice camp to this is that the time, practice, and focusing is on the other running backs to get with the system. Here you have Morency, Smith, Lundy, Cook, Hill, Weaver, and Damien Rhodes. Wow lots of running backs lots of new names now is there time to see where the shine is.

    It's just mini-camp.

    I agree. This should help the new guys get the reps they need in practice and perhaps in preseason games as well. As a 3rd string RB, Morency needs more reps if he wants to show he can play in this league, and show the coaches he is worthy of the #2 spot.

    I think the surprise of the group will be Lundy. Not flashy like Davis, but has been running the scheme well for some time in college and has a nose for the end zone. He is a low to the ground type of guy who will flurish in Kubiak's scheme.

    I've got a bad feeling about this "healed" injury...

    Exactly. If his knee is fully healed like the article said and they are worried about the knee in mini camp, what's going to happen during the regular season? Either the knee is not healed or it's damaged more than we know.
