ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware returned to practice on a limited basis Tuesday with the plan to have him ready for the season opener against Carolina.

Ware missed training camp with a back issue that kept him out of five games in 2015 but said he feels much better than he did at the end of last season. He took part in the walkthrough and drills at the beginning of practice before going into the facility to work with strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson.

Ware said he isn't concerned about playing in the last two preseason games and that the goal is to have him at full strength for the start of the regular season.

Also Tuesday, quarterback Trevor Siemian didn't throw in practice because of a sore right shoulder. Coach Gary Kubiak said Siemian is day to day but is still the starter for Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams.
