Chad Kelly credits teammates for promotion to Broncos' backup QB

NFL preseason roundup: Vikings QBs lead rout of Broncos

Aug 11, 2018; Denver, CO, USA; Minnesota Vikings running back Roc Thomas (32) carries the ball between the tackles of Denver Broncos linebacker Josey Jewell (47) and defensive end Adam Gotsis (99) in the first quarter at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

Chad Kelly took second team reps with the Broncos offense during Monday's practice while Paxton Lynch took third team reps.

Prior to Monday, Lynch had been the Broncos back-up behind Case Keenum while Kelly had been the third team quarterback.

Joseph added that Lynch still has "potential" but that his performance hasn't matched it yet. He has great potential, great physical potential, but it's got to equal performance eventually, he understands that. We'll give an in-depth look at how the battle looked that day, and where each of the competitors stand in the race. "And everything we do, it's graded and it's counted". It's really more about Chad.

"Chad's played well. He played well in the scrimmage". It's been that way since the spring. And Peyton Manning helped return the franchise to glory with two Super Bowl runs before retiring. "It's his turn to be the two".

"Just got to work hard, " Kelly said with a grin when asked if he's ready to be one play away on Sundays. I don't disagree. You said normally they might get a little bit less in these next two weeks, but they have to show something because they are still going to play the majority of that last game and that is a chance for them to show. "It's only right. That's what we live by with our players: if you're playing well and you earn it, you push up and you get it".

"I'm just focusing on being here and getting better, so we'll let that figure itself out", Barr said. Unfortunately, things have panned out that way with Kelly, who was taken in the seventh round previous year, being the second man on the depth chart.

If Kelly ends up working out, no one is going to care anyway. "Me being in my second year, I don't know anything". "And when your time's called, you'd better be able to step up and go".
