ENGLEWOOD – The Denver Broncos had to move to an indoor practice bubble to avoid the cold and snow Wednesday. Rookie quarterback Jay Cutler said even though he played his college ball in Tennessee at Vanderbilt, he won’t be affected if the weather is bad for his first career start on Sunday against Seattle.
According to the Weather Channel’s Web site, the high temperatures for this weekend will be in the low 30s and should be colder by kickoff, which is at 6:15 p.m. “In high school I played a few games in the snow,” said Cutler, who grew up in Santa Claus, Ind. Cutler said he didn’t think he would have a problem if it is cold on Sunday. “Once you get in a game you warm up and that’s the last thing you’re thinking about,” Cutler said. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said he hopes offensive tackle Adam Meadows, who has a hamstring injury, will be ready to practice by Friday, but his status for this week’s game is uncertain. “If we were playing a game today he could not play,” Shanahan said.
