Possible starters in DAL include DeVier Posey

Posted Aug 26, 2013

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave some early indications of starters in Thursday’s final preseason game at Dallas.

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave some early indications of starters in Thursday’s final preseason game at Dallas.

-Wide receiver DeVier Posey, seven months after Achilles surgery, has been steadily increasing his participation in practice and has a chance to play in preseason.

“DeVier, yes there is an excellent chance," Kubiak said Monday. "I want to watch him practice tomorrow. Obviously we’ve got a very short, limited amount of time, but DeVier had real good work yesterday. We’ll work him tomorrow again. If everything continues positive, I would like to see him get on the field and get some snaps because it’s been awhile.”

-Case Keenum will get the start against the Cowboys. Kubiak has alternated both backups throughout preseason to give both an equal chance to work with first and second teams. Keenum and T.J. Yates will each play a half.

-Arian Foster will not play at all this preseason. Foster returned to practice just last week after dealing with hamstring and back issues.

-OLB Whitney Mercilus, who has not practiced after tweaking his hamstring during training camp, should return this week but may be too soon to play on Thursday.

“He’s doing good," Kubiak said. "I’m expecting him on the practice field tomorrow. We’ll probably do some extra work with him. Whether we expose him Thursday, I think he’s going to be in position to play Thursday, whether or not we expose him Thursday is a question we have to answer. You’d always like a guy to play some in the preseason before the season starts. At the same time, we have to be smart. He’s ready. He’s got a good week of work.”

Other Notes:
ILB Mike Mohamed and NT Chris Jones will return to practice this week after battling with injuries.

"We are going to get two players back this week," Kubiak said. "Mohammed will be back this and Chris Jones will be back. So we’re going to get two guys back that need to play that are battling for jobs on this team. That’s where we’re at right now.”
