Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd isn't catching any deep passes in John Fox's conservative, run-oriented offense, and he's letting his quarterback and his coaches know just how he feels about that.
Kyle Orton and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said Lloyd has asked to be more involved in the offense even as opponents roll a safety over the top to bracket him in double-coverage.
A year after leading the league with 1,448 yards receiving, Lloyd said he thinks he's being underused by the Denver Broncos.
He had 17 catches of 25 or more yards last year and none of his 10 catches so far this season have gone for more than 20 yards.
Orton said Lloyd is drawing lots of attention from defenses and Fox said Lloyd has been hurt.
