When the workout began inside the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at the UCHealth Training Center, Denver's air quality was the second-worst globally, trailing only the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk in the middle of Siberia, according to IQAir's world air quality rankings. “I've definitely never seen that before,” safety Kareem Jackson said of moving things indoors because of bad air. Fangio said none of his players has reported any respiratory problems from the poor air quality, but he concurred with his medical staff, which recommended the indoors practice.wftv.com
