ENGLEWOOD – The Broncos dumped one of their four quarterbacks today, but got a few injured players back to practice.

Second-year quarterback Tom Brandstater was released, according to reports. Brandstater became the team’s fourth quarterback after Brady Quinn and Tim Tebow were acquired to go with starter Kyle Orton.

The team got some players back to practice. Receiver Demaryius Thomas, a first-round pick, is participating today for the first time since being drafted. He broke his foot before the NFL scouting combine in February.

Offensive tackle Ryan Harris returned as well, from a toe injury. He missed most of last season with the injury. That’s good news for a Broncos line that is also missing tackle Ryan Clady.

Also, running back J.J. Arrington, who has dealt with knee injuries, is participating in practice. Today’s practice is for younger players, with most veterans getting the day off.
