Broncos OL Zane Beadles was named the team’s Walter Payton Man of the Year nomination for his community service work. “I definitely didn’t expect it,” the third-year player out of Utah said. ... With the field cleared of snow, Denver practiced outside Thursday and Friday. The Broncos had to practice indoors for the first time this season because of a snowstorm that rolled through town Wednesday morning. ... Denver signed OL Lonnie Edwards to the practice squad to replace Quentin Saulsberry, who was suspended four games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. The Broncos will be facing their first rookie QB of the season in Brandon Weeden. “He looks like he has the talent to get it done,” perennial Pro Bowler Champ Bailey said. “He can make you look bad if you let him.” ... LB Von Miller said he never sacked Weeden when Miller suited up for Texas A&M and Weeden at Oklahoma State. “I got a roughing-the-passer call,” Miller said. “Hopefully, things can be different this season.” ... There are 11 players on the injury report listed as probable. “Right now, we’re relatively healthy considering we’re second-to-the-last regular season game, and that’s all good,” Broncos’ head coach John Fox said.
