Vance Joseph also said Tuesday he would split time with the starters equally among quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch during the Broncos' 10 OTA practices. Siemian got the majority of the work with the starters Tuesday and Lynch will get the majority of the work with the starters Wednesday. "They'll each get five (practices)," Joseph said.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said after Tuesday's OTA practice the team would be patient with running back Jamaal Charles. Joseph said Charles would be in a group of players that also includes center Matt Paradis and tight end Jake Butt that likely would not do much on field work until training camp. Joseph said Charles and the other players needed a chance to get healthy "before they can help us."
