Garett Bolles medically cleared to return to field


An improved Denver Broncos offensive line suffered only a temporary blow on Monday.

Starting left tackle Garett Bolles left Monday's practice after taking a shot to the chin but was later medically cleared to take part in the team's afternoon walkthrough, according to multiple reporters covering Broncos training camp.

After suffering through inconsistency among the front five in 2017, the Broncos made improving the offensive line a point of emphasis during the offseason. The team made changes to the coaching staff and acquired tackle Jared Veldheer via trade with the Arizona Cardinals.

Veldheer was brought in to anchor the right side of the offensive line, while tackles Andreas Knappe, Menelik Watson and Cyrus Kouandjio were among those added to the roster this offseason.
