The Rocky Mountain News reports Denver Broncos DL Ebenezer Ekuban is adjusting from being a starter on the defensive line to being a role player. "The coaches advised me exactly of what's going on.

It's a little different, but that's where you have to really check your ego because you realize there's something bigger than just yourself. You have to put the team first," Ekuban said.
