Running back position has plenty of depth for Broncos

When training camp began, Broncos fans probably thought the running back position was a weakness. Their top back from a year ago left as a free agent, and their starter is a second year player with ball security issues. But after one preseason game, it could be a strength.

Montee Ball returned to the sidelines after his successful apendectomy Saturday, Ronnie Hillman scored a touchdown against the Seahawks without fumbling, and rookies Kapri Bibbs and Juwan Thompson looked good Thursday night.

"It's nice to see when you get the younger guys in there, and they're moving the ball, i mean, they're running 20 yards at a time," said Ball. "It's definitely fun seeing that, and, the offense set the tempo."

"Just to keep getting better every single time I go out there, even at practice, not just preseason games," said Bibbs. "Not letting up and keeping my foot down, so at the end of the day, when I'm all said and done, I don't ever want to let up and every single preseason game, go out there, and prove myself."

The Broncos have tomorrow off before returning to practice Monday.
