DENVER - Running back Kapri Bibbs had a lonely walk off the practice field Wednesday.
Bibbs, an undrafted free agent following his record-breaking 2013 season at Colorado State, had been sticking together with college teammate Shaquil Barrett as the two have been trying to survive roster cuts looming within the next month. But, this time, Bibbs trudged his way through a downpour of rain into the southwest tunnel of Sports Authority Field alone.
Barrett was not on hand for Denver's second practice open to the public, which drew a crowd of 9,207.
When coach John Fox addressed the media after the team's final drills, he gave an opening statement with a number of players who sat out including a brief description as to why.
"Shaquil Barrett, ankle," Fox said as he continued down his list of six total injured players.
His catalog also featured defensive ends Chase Vaughn (knee), DeMarcus Ware (leg) and Greg Latta (hip) as well as defensive backs John Boyett (low back) and Louis Young (groin).
Bibbs had a little more information to share - but not by much. According to him, Barrett experienced a minor ankle sprain some time Tuesday afternoon, adding that it wasn't anything to worry about. He is anticipating having Barrett back on the field and available to sit next to in the dining hall in the near future.
"He just sprained his ankle a little bit but hopefully he's back soon. He's a tough guy so I expect him to be back soon," Bibbs said. "That's my boy. I talk to him every single day. He's good, still laughing and joking around. He's keeping his cool."
