Lloyd closing in on first 1,000-yard season

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - It's taken a long time for Brandon Lloyd to show what he's really capable of.

He had stints in San Francisco, Washington and Chicago before the Denver Broncos signed him in June 2009. Then he even sat the first 14 games with the Broncos before getting a chance to dress for a ballgame.

Throughout that time it would have been fair to call him nothing more than a talented journeyman. Things change. In his eighth year, Lloyd is now just 32 yards shy of his first 1,000-yard season.

His 968 yards to date are just one off Rod Smith's team record for best start in franchise history through 10 games.
