Broncos notes: Dawkins ready to go for Sunday

ENGLEWOOD — Brian Dawkins appears ready to play in his first game for the Denver Broncos.

The veteran safety didn’t play in the first two preseason games because of a broken right hand, but said he is excited for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. He said he will be able to do everything expected of him during the game, even with a club cast on his hand.

“If I couldn’t, I wouldn’t (play),” Dawkins said. “Everything is where it needs to be for me to get out there and do what I need to do for my teammates.”

Dawkins said he is not sure when he will be able to play without the cast, which he wears in practice every day.

“It’s kind of a week-to-week situation,” Dawkins said. “It’s how my hand is feeling every week. We’ll see.”

Cutler reaction

With a lot of attention on receiver Brandon Marshall, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s return on Sunday is approaching quietly. Receiver Brandon Stokley said he looks forward to seeing Cutler.

“I’ll say hi to him, definitely,” Stokley said. “No hard feelings. I still like him. We’re still friends.”

Could be worse

On the day Marshall was suspended by the team, Dawkins said the saga involving Marshall doesn’t compare to what he witnessed with Philadelphia in 2005, when receiver Terrell Owens sabotaged his Eagles career by his actions and was suspended. “A lot crazier with T.O,” Dawkins said. “A lot crazier.”
