Stokley impressive as he takes first strides toward comeback

ENGLEWOOD (AP) - Those aren't baby steps Brandon Stokley is taking. They're big, swift, dazzling strides.

The nine-year pro has been the most impressive newcomer during the first two days of the Denver Broncos' training camp, starting at split end with flanker Javon Walker. Stokely made one head-turning move after another while convincing himself and his new team that he's healthy again.

Coach Mike Shanahan says he liked the way Stokley handled himself in practice today and says the Broncos are fortunate to have him. He ruptured his right Achilles' tendon last December, leading to his offseason release from the Indianapolis Colts and scaring away potential suitors in free agency.

Stokley is getting a lot of looks with Rod Smith and Brandon Marshall opening camp on the sideline.
