Broncos’ season opener will be sans fans

In other Broncos news: K.J. Hamler’s status for Denver’s opener against Tennessee is in doubt as he deals with a hamstring injury.

On Friday morning the Broncos announced that the team’s season opener on Monday, Sept. 14 against the Tennessee Titans will take place without fans in the stands of Empower Field.

“Working in collaboration with the state and with safety as the top priority, we have made the decision that our home opener against Tennessee at Empower Field at Mile High will be played without fans. We are grateful for the loyalty and enthusiasm that Broncos fans have shown this year — despite such challenging circumstances — but this is the responsible thing to do right now for our community. 

The Broncos said in a statement that was released.

The team said that depending on the progress made during the ensuing weeks there is a chance that Denver’s Week 3 game Tampa Bay could allow some fans to attend.
