Broncos notes: No love lost for Raiders

Rivalry strong

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said after one game that he understands the magnitude of the Broncos-Raiders rivalry. The first game included an incident between Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour and Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Clady, which will add some intensity.

“We expected it to be a rivalry type game, and it was. There was some heated exchanges on the field and some nastiness, if you want to call it that. But that’s the fun part of being in a rivalry. We’re not supposed to like each other. I don’t think we like them, and they don’t like us.”

Injury update

The good news for the Broncos was that outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil was able to return to practice after missing Wednesday, and running back Knowshon Moreno was upgraded from limited to full practice. However, cornerback Ty Law (hamstring), safety Renaldo Hill (ankle) and running back Correll Buckhalter (ankle) all missed practice for the second straight day.

In Hill’s place, rookie David Bruton worked with the starting defense for the second straight day during the open period of practice. If Law can’t play, rookie Alphonso Smith will be the third cornerback in nickel situations.
