Montee Ball moves up in Broncos backfield

Posted:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- John Fox swears he hasn't lost confidence in Ronnie Hillman even though the second-year running back has had back-to-back games with fumbles returned for touchdowns.

Still, it was rookie Montee Ball who got most of the work Monday with Denver's starters for the first time all summer.


"It's just practice," Fox said. "I wouldn't read too much into anything. We're evaluating everybody regardless of who gets what reps at what numbers. He's a guy that we want to get touches and we'll go from there."

Hillman, a second-year speedster from San Diego State who played sparingly last year, bulked up over the winter and was given first crack at winning the starting job.
