6:49 am
wrenching them back behind. >> tally lost teeth, suffered broken ribs and look at this bruising. police dismissed the case then arrested him a second time claiming they had new evidence. police dropped that case as well. tally says he is now homeless and fighting to win back his life. investigators still looking for that bank robber. this is the news in campaign 2016. donald trump is trying to get past controversial comments made by the republican nominee years ago. remember when he questioned if president obama was born in the united states? now he's had a change of heart. trump's campaign released a statement signalling he's no longer a belief, a belief that he's held for years now. earlier in the day hillary clinton criticized trump for refusing to say publicly the president was in fact born in the united states during an

post. >> he still wouldn't say, "america". this man wants to be our next president? when will he stop this ugliness and bigotry? >> you think your birther position has hurt you among african americans? >> i don't know, i have no idea. it don't talk about it anymore. >> the clinton campaign is calling on trump to publicly disavow his birther comments. tonight legacy high football players will play their homecoming game despite sunday's deadly bus crash. the bus driver carrie chopper veered off the road and slammed into a concrete bridge pillar. 15 opportunities and three coaches were also hurt. legacy plays prairie view tonight. students at that school signed a large banner yesterday in support of legacy high. tonight's game at north stadium
6:51 am
also supporting legacy high school. members of the westminster high school team brought deserts during the team dinner last night. that's so nice to see. the broncos are looking to pick up another win this sunday taking on the colts right here on cbs4 at 2:25 on sunday and the game could really be a big test for the broncos. it's been a good match up in years past. >> you're right, it's been a good match in the past. more so for the colts. for the fifth time the broncos face the colts, more like andrew luck and the colts. the broncos are 1-3 in the previous four meetings with the colts and the biggest problem is still the same. beeting andrew luck. how tough is it? -- -- beating. the denver broncos defense
6:52 am
the remainder of the season with a lacerated kidney yet the colts still won, 27-24. >> the one thing about this guy, he's so tough and strong. that's part of his game, sitting in there holding the ball until the last second getting it gone. a lot of speed and very dangerous from that standpoint when he extends plays it gets difficult. so ovenly they got it done against him l good job. >> what do the broncos need to do to beat the colts this sunday? the defensive backs have to hold their coverages longer because luck is holding on to the ball and taking punishment in order to make a play. because luck isn't afraid to take a hit from the legs most feared defenses, theestiest way to keep him from scoring is to keep him off the field. trevor siemian's biggest job is
6:53 am
the field. last week lions quarterback stafford had a field day with the secondary. he went 31 for 39 for 343 yards and 3 touchdowns. this means trevor siemian could have the opportunity to throw more than the 26 times he did in last week's opener and show us more what he's got. >> what's the biggest thing we should be afraid of with andrew luck and the colts? >> luck scores. if he's on the last week they lost to the lions 39-35 but when you score 35 points, you're expected to win so the goal is this game for the broncos offense to use the clockwisely by combining their run and passing game. the more you can keep andrew luck off the field, that's the easiest way to keep him from scoring. >> got it, romi. i also read von miller has yet to sack luck so this could happen this weekend. all eyes on that field.
6:54 am
report. hear more from romi on denver sports 760. trending this morning, a houston teen hears her mom's voice for the very first time as she gets an implant and a camera caught the heartwarming moment. >> can you hear my voice now? yeah? >> can you hear my voice? >> yes.
