Is it time for the Broncos to make Royce Freeman the featured back?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Part of it is simple math. Only one guy can get the ball at a time.

But as the Denver Broncos try to find their way on offense these days, there is plenty of evidence rookie running back Royce Freeman had shown enough, done enough, flashed enough potential to get that ball more often. Broncos offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave has said it’s time to “take the training wheels off” in how the Broncos use Freeman, as well as fellow rookie running back Phillip Lindsay, in the team’s offense.

“Royce has done a super job breaking tackles after contact,” Musgrave said.
