Because of what head coach Gary Kubiak has seen from Foster in that side field work, though, he’s confident the 2012 NFL touchdown king will suit up for the season opener at San Diego.
“Yes, I am because I watch him work,” Kubiak said Monday. “I’ve been watching him. He’s basically going through practices or has been since we’ve been in camp on his own with (Head Athletic Trainer) Geoff (Kaplan) and obviously there’s been a little setback as we try to get the soreness out of him.”
“It’s not like he’s been standing around for the last three weeks,” Kubiak said. But obviously want to get him back out here as quick as we can.”
Kubiak still doesn’t have a target date for Fotster’s return, and said the team is staying patient and positive.
