Broncos coach Vic Fangio has dialed back the music during Broncos' practices, a staple for several years and several head coaches. The music now plays as the players come on to the field, but it's a no-go during practice. He said: “Anybody that's been a position coach or an assistant coach, they don't like the music because it makes it hard to talk to your guys. So I don't see the benefit of having the music out there. I was an assistant coach and I don't want to have to drum out the noise to talk to my players. And there's no music in games and when it comes to the point where we need to simulate crowd noise in practice, which we will do, it will be noise, it won't be music, it will be noise. So, that's what it is games. Noise, by definition, sounds annoying, music sounds nice. So, if we've got to deal with with noise, let's deal with noise ... I don't like it, I don't like to have to yell to communicate with a player that's standing as close as me to you. That makes no sense.'' Fangio added when it's time to listen to music he's partial to Earth Wind & Fire as well as Michael Jackson.

After Friday's practice Broncos coach Vic Fangio said linebacker Todd Davis will be out "at least a couple weeks and we'll see from there.'' Davis, who started every game last season, suffered a calf injury in the final team period of Thursday's practice. Alexander Johnson worked in Davis' inside linebacker spot with the starters Friday, but Fangio said other players would get some opportunities there as well in upcoming practices. "You saw (Johnson) out there ... running with the first group, probably tomorrow or the next day it will be somebody else,'' Fangio said. "We'll just kind of even out the work.''

On Thursday Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders took part in his first practice since he suffered an Achilles tendon injury last December -- "I'm just now -- I'm doing routes on air in individual (drills), I'm trying to work myself back to going full-go.'' Sanders added he believes he's still a few weeks from the potential to take part in a full practice. After practice Broncos coach Vic Fangio said: "We're going to ease him back in ... he's doing really good ... it's going to be day-to-day with him with how much we add on to this plate and we're just going to build to it and see how it goes.''
