*UPDATE: The Broncos have canceled practice on Saturday, Aug. 3.
The Denver Broncos season officially commences with the start of training camp on Thursday as John Elway, Vic Fangio, Joe Flacco and company try to right the ship on the club’s “road to redemption.”
Denver gets on the field earlier than normal this season, as the Broncos will play an extra preseason game — the Hall of Fame Game — along with their regularly-scheduled four exhibitions.
More preseason action means more practices for Broncos Country to take in down at UCHealth Training Center, as the public will be able to watch 19 practices from July 18 to Aug. 13, including a stadium practice at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.
Here’s what fans need to know.
