Beadles out to start as a rookie

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Rookie hazing didn't spare Zane Beadles, whose mop of hair earlier this month was reduced to stubble by the Denver Broncos' veteran players.

Beadles says his appearance still shocks him every time he walks in front of a mirror.

Nearly as startling: the second-rounder's rise to prominence as an offensive guard this summer.

An offensive tackle at the University of Utah, Beadles has spent the bulk of his first NFL summer learning the finer points of playing in more confined spaces in the pros. Though his practice
repetitions have increased at tackle since the official end of camp.

While he is again expected to start Sunday night in Denver's third preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Invesco Field, he may actually do so at tackle.
