Rogers questionable for Thurs


Recommended Posts

good. we can ill afford to lose our best defensive player, especially against a team that loves to run like denver does.

Actually Denver is far from a rushing team this year. They are ranked 18th in rushing (105.2), but 4th in passing (268.8)....and they also have no healthy RB's. They are down to Selvin Young (who is injured) and a couple of rookies.


I am much more concerned about our pass rush and our corners.


Something to keep in mind, the Broncos haven't cracked the 20 point level in 5 straight games!!!

Broncos dealing with two more key injuries


Posted: Adam Schefter | Adam Schefter | Tags: Champ Bailey, D.J. Williams, Denver Broncos


As if they weren’t hit hard enough with injuries, the Broncos suffered two more significant ones at linebacker and safety.


D.J. Williams tore his medial collateral ligament and will be sidelined four weeks, Broncos coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Tuesday. This means that Williams and cornerback Champ Bailey, Denver’s best two defensive players, might not play at all in the month of November.


Also, veteran safety Marlon McCree suffered a high ankle sprain during Sunday’s loss to Miami and will be out three to four weeks.


“Any time you lose your two (defensive) captains (Bailey and Williams), obviously it’s a setback,” Shanahan said. “(Williams) has been a great leader. He leads by example. He is not a big talker, but he practices and plays the same way—full speed all the time. He’s a playmaker, he has great speed and great tackling ability and he is just a guy who has been very consistent for us. It’s one of the reasons we signed him long term.”


Now they have lost him for short term.
