Bron­cos coach Vic Fan­gio on Wednes­day con­demned the racist, homo­pho­bic and misog­y­nis­tic com­ments by Jon Gru­den revealed in emails that led to his res­ig­na­tion Mon­day night as coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders, now led by inter­im coach Rich Bisac­cia, trav­el to face the Bron­cos on Sunday.

“There’s no place in the world, let alone our league, for the opin­ions that were expressed and espe­cial­ly the words used to express those opin­ions,” Fan­gio said. “Myself and the (Bron­cos) orga­ni­za­tion are def­i­nite­ly against that. It was a bad situation.”

Safe­ty Justin Sim­mons said the Gru­den deba­cle was dis­cussed by him and team­mates in the Bron­cos’ lock­er room.

“It can be con­cern­ing at times because you just don’t know people’s inten­tions and thoughts and motives and their heart pos­tures,” Sim­mons said.

Bron­cos quar­ter­back Ted­dy Bridge­wa­ter expects Raiders quar­ter­back Derek Carr to lead his team through the turmoil.

“Know­ing Derek per­son­al­ly, I know he’s a guy who will ral­ly those guys togeth­er,” Bridge­wa­ter said. “He’s a great leader, a great man and a lot of peo­ple respect him. I know he’s a guy capa­ble of pulling his troops togeth­er and keep­ing them focused.”

Gor­don, Jack­son sit. Run­ning back Melvin Gor­don (low­er leg), safe­ty Kareem Jack­son (back), inside line­backer Alexan­der John­son (rest) and right tack­le Bob­by Massie (rest) did not prac­tice Wednesday.

Gordon’s prac­tice time has been man­aged the last three weeks. Fan­gio said Jack­son should be “fine — he’s feel­ing much bet­ter (Wednes­day).”

Cornerback/special team­er Mike Ford (knee) did not prac­tice and has been ruled out for mul­ti­ple weeks.

Lim­it­ed par­tic­i­pants were out­side line­backer Von Miller (rest) and nose tack­le Mike Pur­cell (back). Cor­ner­back Ronald Dar­by (ham­string) was prac­ticed fully.

Bridge­wa­ter is off the injury report after his snaps were lim­it­ed last week due to the con­cus­sion protocol.

“It allows me to real­ly spend more time div­ing into the game plan on a day like (Wednes­day) as opposed to last week (when) I had to do dif­fer­ent tests and things like that,” he said.

Brown joins WR room. Vet­er­an receiv­er John Brown prac­ticed for the first time since sign­ing with the prac­tice squad Tuesday.

Brown, 31, has 320 catch­es (31 touch­downs) for 4,478 yards in 96 games for Ari­zona, Bal­ti­more and Buf­fa­lo. He was released by Las Vegas on Aug. 31.

“How quick­ly he’ll be able to join (and play in games), we’ll see,” Fan­gio said. “These next three days will tell. Obvi­ous­ly, com­ing in cold with no back­ground in our sys­tem, he has some heavy lift­ing to learn it. We’ll see how he looks and what he can learn and make a deci­sion by the end of the week. … He’s fast, he’s a big-time receiv­er and runs well with it after he catch­es it.”

Local sports fan. Two weeks ago, Fan­gio wore a Rock­ies wind­break­er to his Wednes­day news con­fer­ence and this week it was a Gabriel Lan­deskog No. 92 Avalanche jer­sey. Fan­gio said he trad­ed text mes­sages with Avalanche coach Jared Bed­nar ear­li­er this week.

“I’m a sports fan,” said Fan­gio, who has attend­ed Rock­ies, Nuggets and CU bas­ket­ball games since join­ing the Bron­cos. “I haven’t been to an Avs game yet, but I need to get to one. I like the com­pe­ti­tion. I like see­ing great ath­letes play. And I like see­ing young ath­letes play at a high school game.”
