After Shedding Pounds, Holland Finally Practices

By  | 

Montrae Holland was winded, rusty and a step slow -- and he couldn't have been happier. He'd much rather be a pulling guard than pushing a sled.

The Denver Broncos' incumbent right guard practiced for the first time today after spending the first two weeks of camp pushing sleds on an adjacent field. That's because Holland reported out of shape and overweight to training camp and had to get down to his playing weight of about 325 pounds before joining his teammates for practice.

Holland worked with the second team offensive line but fully anticipates he'll regain his starting job by the time the season starts.
