A long time has passed since defensive end Trevor Pryce played for the Denver Broncos, at least in football years. Pryce was let go by the Broncos after the 2005 season, picked up by Baltimore, and has shown that Denver might have let him go too soon.

Pryce has four sacks in six games for the Ravens as he continues to play at a high level in his 13th season.

Pryce has 23.5 sacks since joining the Ravens, despite missing most of the 2007 season because of injuries.

He will play his former team Sunday.

“Trevor is very effective right now,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s a big asset in the pass rush, he can still play the run, he’s a real smart player and a team leader.”

Harbaugh said he didn’t know how many good years the 34-year-old Pryce has left.

“I wouldn’t underestimate it, that’s for sure,” Harbaugh said.

Meanwhile, another former Bronco hasn’t fared as well in Baltimore. Cornerback Domonique Foxworth, a 2005 draft pick, has been criticized for his slow start after signing a big contract this offseason.

“We’re happy to have him here, and he’s going to be a big part of what we do here,” Harbaugh said.

Odds and ends
Broncos defensive tackle Ronald Fields (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday. The Broncos did not have any players miss practice. … Cornerback Champ Bailey was named the Broncos’ Walter Payton Man of the Year award recipient for the second straight year. He is eligible to win the leaguewide award, which is announced Super Bowl week.
