Broncos visit MetLife Stadium for walkthrough

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The Denver Broncos held their walkthrough practice Saturday at MetLife Stadium, working out in sweats for about 30 minutes.

Several players brought cameras and camcorders to MetLife Stadium. All-Pro guard Louis Vasquez took a panoramic photo of the Super Bowl venue. Backup tackle Vinston Painter posed for photos and safety Mike Adams recorded the scene with a video camera mounted on his head.

"They worked really hard to have this opportunity," coach John Fox said of his players. "Might as well enjoy it."

Peyton Manning took several photos inside the locker room with teammates and later posed with John Elway on the field. After practice, the players' families were invited onto the field to take pictures.

There was some work, too, as Denver went over a few offensive and defensive sets one last time before Sunday night's Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks.

Security workers kept chasing stadium employees away as they tried to watch the short practice.

"It was very similar to what we've done all season _ typical Saturday practice," Fox said. "Just a review, pretty much. Play the game, walk the field, maybe not everything we're going to do, because you don't know what security is like here. But it was beneficial."

The only player not expected to play Sunday night is defensive tackle Sione Fua, doubtful with a calf injury.

The weather was balmy compared to recent days: mid-40s with clear blue skies.

"We're pretty much weather-proof," Fox said. "We live in Denver, so we practice in just about every element there is."
