The Denver Broncos defense team is getting a nice boost ahead of the first opener of the first week.

The Broncos were hoping linebacker Jonas Griffith would recover from a pre-season elbow injury

And now it is in trend after the 25-year-old returned to practice on Tuesday.

Denver head coach Nathaniel Hackett played it pretty close to the vest as far as whether or not Griffith would play in Seattle.

But he had said earlier that he hoped he would be available.

"Right now, everyone's going to practice," Hackett said before Tuesday's practice.

"We'll pick up all those people and see where they are."

The Broncos also welcomed back tight end Albert Okwegbunam and right tackle Billy Turner.
