Vicki Michaelis, of the USA Today, reports Denver Broncos OL Dwayne Carswell is recovering nicely from the injuries he suffered in an automobile accident last season.

"Every day that goes by I feel a lot better," Carswell says. "I'm getting back to my old self again. I am very confident that I'll be able to play (this season). I'll be ready to play and help the team out any way I can." Physically, Carswell will be ready to take on anything training camp and the season bring, Antonopulos says. Psychologically, he's still preparing for the hard hits.

I joined the offensive line as one of the heaviest from playing tight end," he added, "so it's kind of different."

Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos OL Dwayne Carswell is confident he'll return in 2006 after suffering injuries in a car accident during the 2005 season. Carswell is being eased into the team's off-season conditioning program, which began April 3, understandable given the offensive lineman had his spleen removed, smashed his ribs, tore his diaphragm and essentially had his internal organs jammed into the top of his chest cavity when his car was broadsided on his way to the team's practice facility Oct. 27. "I definitely want to be ready by training camp, and minicamps and all that, at least be out there," he said. Since Denver's main minicamp won't take place until July, Carswell thinks both goals are realistic.
