The Denver Broncos might have a new entry into their quarterback competition in about two weeks’ time.
Chad Kelly, the Broncos’ seventh-round draft pick and the final player selected in this year’s NFL draft, is progressing in his recovery from right wrist surgery and remains in line to return in time for the team’s training camp.
“Hopefully, I should start throwing within the next two weeks,” Kelly said on NFL Network Friday, according to Max Meyer of NFL.com. “My goal is to get ready for training camp and try to help the team win in any way possible.”
Kelly underwent surgery in April to repair a ruptured ligament. The injury cut short his pro day workout ahead of the draft.
The nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly currently figures to slot in as the Broncos’ third quarterback.
