ENGLEWOOD — According to Denver 7 Insider Troy Renck, the Denver Broncos have received approval from Colorado Department of Public Health to begin training camp without fans starting on July 23rd.

Bronco rookies would report for the first few days of camp, as the veterans do not need to report till July 28th.

If the Broncos would want fans in attendance during training camp, the organization would need to submit an additional plan in order for fans to attend.

As part of the state's approval, the Broncos must also share news of suspected or confirmed cases of players, staff and other essential workers with local and state health officials, when applicable.

This approval is separate from ongoing talks between NFLPA and NFL Management Council on the return to play protocol involving the coronavirus.

Talks between both sides are ongoing, but have agreed that the league would move forward as scheduled despite a recent spike of the virus in some league markets.
