ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Madison Bowey Jersey . -- For a guy who didnt get away during the bye week, Aqib Talib was sure in a good mood Monday.He sang. He danced. He crowed.Following his first practice since Oct. 28, Talib said his balky back was feeling great, the cortisone shot and all that rest and rehab doing wonders for his mobility and his mood.Hey, yall better come get this, Talib hollered at a group of reporters gathered around running back Kapri Bibbs on the other side of the locker room.Hey Kapri! Kill your (stuff). Im talking, Talib said. Ive got announcements to make. Lets talk.And that big proclamation was ...Im back, baby!So, clearly Talib is feeling better as the Denver Broncos (7-3) prepare for a Sunday night showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs (7-3).Talib, who missed two games, said hes confident he can finish out the season without any more back problems.I feel great, like Im going to finish great, even better, Talib said. I got a three-week break so my legs feel extra fresh and I just feel like super fresh right now.Talib stuck around Denver during the break to get treatment and work on his conditioning alongside defensive end Derek Wolfe , who missed the last game with a hairline fracture in his right elbow.Both were full participants in practice Monday along with rookie fullback Andy Janovich, who ditched his cast for the first time since breaking his right hand in a game against Houston on Oct. 24.Itll give us (more options) because obviously the last few weeks Ive been pretty limited in what I can do so weve been using a lot more tight ends, Janovich said. So, itll get me back in the game. Its just one more personnel (grouping) for them to think about.The Super Bowl champs are remarkably healthy heading into a daunting homestretch that includes four AFC West games and a visit from the rival New England Patriots.Its always good when we get in that huddle, man, and you see everybody, all the guys, Talib said. So, itll be good. Were well-rested, we should come out and play real good.The only players who missed Mondays practice were wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, whose wife was preparing to give birth, and center Matt Paradis, who is dealing with a sore hip and has been held out of practice for much of this month.Inside linebacker Brandon Marshall said his sore hamstring was feeling a lot better after the bye.I think were poised for a nice run, Marshall said. Were all well-rested and ready to go, man.Indeed, the locker room had a post-victory vibe.Its always a good vibe. Were not 3-7. Were 7-3, Talib said. So, why wouldnt the vibe be good in here? You hear me? No. 1 pass D. Theres no reason for it not to be a good vibe.Although less animated, fellow cornerback Chris Harris Jr. was just as excited about Talibs return.Oh man, it just makes my job a lot easier, said Harris, who can go back to playing the slot now. Just being able to have a guy out there that knows whats going on and has that communication thats always on point. It just makes it to where I dont really have to talk to everybody all game.And I think everybody feels fresh, ready to roll, Harris said. We just know this is our time when weve got to turn it up another notch. This is a time where a lot of teams fall off.Game notes The Broncos re-signed former Ravens WR/returner Marlon Brown, whom coach Gary Kubiak had pledged to bring back when he waived the fourth-year pro on Aug. 4 because of a bad back. To make room, they waived corner back Taurean Nixon. ... With a dozen missed extra points in Week 11, Marshall said he likes the rule that moved the PATs back to 33 yards. Its not so automatic anymore, he said. I think that theyve got to work for it. The line has to work harder because the D-line is working harder because we know we can get a block. I think its a good rule change. I think its good for the game.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Tom Wilson Jersey . -- The Magic have their first victory of the new year.

"Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. It was an annual tradition at the ACCs preseason kickoff event. Questions would be asked about the potential for a league TV network, and commissioner John Swofford would juke and dodge, providing few details.This year, however, things were different.I dont have to do any dancing, Swofford joked from a stage loaded with ACC dignitaries and ESPN executives.This time, he had an answer. The long-awaited ACC Network will launch by August 2019, with the Atlantic Coast Conference and ESPN agreeing to a 20-year deal and rights extension through the 2035-36 academic year in an announcement made Thursday.The ACC also extended its conference rights deal nine years through 2035-36.The conferences grant of rights makes it financially untenable for a school to leave, guaranteeing in the 20 years of the deal that a schools media rights, including revenue, for all home games would remain with the ACC regardless of the schools affiliation.The ACC is a great conference, and this increases the national exposure, brings in additional revenue and offers greater opportunity for student-athletes, Clemson president Jim Clements said. For us and the Florida States and others, it stabilizes the conference long term. Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey. The ACCs new grant of rights also automatically extends Notre Dames contract with the conference as a member in all sports but football through 2035-36, a source said. If the Irish forgo football independence in the next 20 years, they will be contracted to join the ACC.Swofford said Notre Dame was no closer to joining the conference for football, but the phone lines are always open.While the linear network will launch by 2019, the ACC Networks digital channel will start this fall and carry 600 live events. The linear network will broadcast more than 1,300 live events per year when it starts.Swofford said the league will move to a 20-game league schedule in mens basketball by 2019, part of an effort to boost the amount of available content.The ACC Network will increase the leagues overall value. Swofford said the many agreements will put the ACC in the upper echelon of Power 5 conferences and secure the leagues future over the next 20 years.ESPNs Brett McMurphy and David M. Hale and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
