Second-round rookie WR Cody Latimer is a full participant at Broncos camp.

A foot injury limited Latimer this spring, but the 56th pick in May's draft is shining early in camp. He beat first-round CB Bradley Roby for a long TD from Brock Osweiler in Thursday's practice and has "showed no issues" with the foot. In addition to his impressive size-speed combination, the Denver Post reports the Broncos considered Latimer "the best blocking receiver in the draft."

Demaryius Thomas (personal) will miss the first four days of training camp.

Thomas is attending funeral services for his grandmother in Georgia and isn't expected back until early next week. Now entering his third season in this Peyton Manning offense, there's no concerns whatsoever with the missed time. Thomas has piled up a ridiculous 186-2,864-24 line over the last two seasons.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) has been cleared for limited work, and will avoid opening camp on the active/PUP list.

The Broncos will ease Miller back after he tore his right ACL in Week 16. Miller will be held out of contact until the third preseason game, at the earliest. Barring setbacks, Miller will be on the field for the opener. He slimmed down in the offseason and is fully committed to a bounce-back season. With DeMarcus Ware opposite him, Miller should easily post double-digit sacks.

Broncos placed CB Chris Harris (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Harris is about six months removed from partially tearing his ACL, and estimated he was at 80-85 percent health two weeks ago. He's scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in the near future. Harris is expected to return at some point during camp and be ready to roll for Week 1. Harris will man the slot.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has given up control of the team as he battles Alzheimer's disease.

The 70-year-old Bowlen has owned the Broncos for 30 years, establishing himself as one of the game's iconic executives while going to the Super Bowl six times and winning twice. "It's a really, really sad day," said team president Joe Ellis, who is assuming control of the Broncos. "It's sad for his family, his wife and his seven children. It's sad for everyone in the organization. And it's sad for all the Bronco fans who know what Pat Bowlen meant to them as an owner. It's a day nobody wanted to see happen."

Broncos S Eric Hagg is retiring.

A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Browns, Hagg combined for 22 appearances across his first two NFL campaigns, but was out of the league last season. Rather than play out his remote shot at cracking the Broncos' 53-man roster, Hagg has decided to go out on his own terms. The Nebraska product is only 23.

Julius Thomas told Larry Brown Sports he "absolutely" wants to stay in Denver long term.

Thomas is entering a contract year, and GM John Elway has made it clear he doesn't value J.T. at Jimmy Graham's level. Thomas doesn't seem to mind. "Absolutely," said the ascending 26-year-old. "I love Denver. It’s a great city. I really love that franchise, fan base, I would look forward to being there for a long time." Thomas could be a candidate for the franchise tag in 2015.

The Broncos are considering moving S Omar Bolden to cornerback.

Bolden was converted to a rotational safety last season, playing on a career-high 211 snaps. With T.J. Ward, Rahim Moore, Quinton Carter, and Duke Ihenacho locked in as the Broncos' top four safeties, Bolden's best chance at making the team could be as the No. 5 corner. A 2012 fourth-round pick, Bolden will remain a deep reserve if he keeps his roster spot.

The Broncos are counting on a second-year leap from DT Sylvester Williams.

Williams appeared in 13 games (four starts) as a rookie, but didn't see regular playing time until the second half. He had both of his sacks and nine of his 19 tackles in Denver's final three games. Williams should get the majority of snaps over Kevin Vickerson at three-technique this year, with Terrance Knighton returning at nose tackle.

Broncos GM John Elway said the team will continue to work on contract extensions for Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas during camp.

"I'm never going to go into the season, but the first couple of weeks, we can continue to talk about it," said Elway. "After the second week of the preseason, we'll want to have had something done, one way or another." The team would like to get both deals done. Demaryius should be the first priority.

Broncos SS Duke Ihenacho is on the roster bubble heading into training camp.

Ihenacho started 18-of-19 games last season, including the playoffs, amassing 88 tackles, six pass breakups, and three forced fumbles while playing solid run defense as a first-year starter. The Broncos decided to upgrade on him by signing T.J. Ward in the offseason, leaving Ihenacho in a fight for a roster spot with special teams aces Quinton Carter, David Bruton, and Omar Bolden.

ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold left second-year RB C.J. Anderson off his initial 53-man roster projection.

It's obviously way too early to project final rosters before a training camp practice or even preseason game has taken place, but it's noteworthy nonetheless and something to store away. Legwold notes that Anderson is going to have to show more than he did during the spring to serve as Montee Ball's backup. Ronnie Hillman is currently in the lead for No. 2 duties, though there's a better than good chance that will change once the summer is over. UDFA RBs Brennan Clay and Juwan Thompson made some noise in the spring.

DeMarcus Ware said he feels "better than I did the last two years going into the season."

"Stronger, faster. I feel flexible," Ware added. The 32-year-old has dropped weight after playing around 270 pounds last season as a defensive end. He's still going to play end for the Broncos, but expects to be in more two-point stances as an edge rusher in Denver. Ware has also been dabbling in an eastern medicine technique called "cupping," where he lies flat on his stomach and puts a bunch of empty jars on his back. A hot flame is put in them, and it supposedly "sucks that bad blood out" of your pores. Whatever works for ya, DeMarcus.

During the offseason, the Broncos saw "vast improvements" from Montee Ball in his work as both a receiver and pass blocker.

In a Peyton Manning offense, protecting the quarterback is priority one, two and three. Ball got Peyton blown up during the 2013 preseason, allowing Knowshon Moreno to step in and steal all the fantasy glory. But Ball quietly progressed as the year moved along, and the Broncos now clearly trust him in all areas of the passing game. "If you're looking for a player for whom the Broncos have cleared the way to shine most, it's Montee Ball," says beat man Jeff Legwold.

Broncos second-round pick Cody Latimer (foot) was limited during OTAs, but "did offer glimpses of how adept he is at winning the ball in contested situations."

ESPN reporter Jeff Legwold also confirms Latimer "is on track to be ready for the regular season opener." Latimer stands 6-foot-3, 215 and ran in the 4.3s at his Pro Day. It was Sigmund Bloom who suggested Latimer could be this year's Keenan Allen. He just needs to catch one break higher on the depth chart.
