Found August 21, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
With the regular season approaching, Stewart Bradley had appeared to have won the Denver Broncos’ starting middle linebacker position. However, Bradley was one of several Broncos’ players – also including Champ Bailey, Wes Welker and Derek Wolfe – to be injured during their preseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks. As a result of the injury, Bradley required surgery on his wrist, a procedure that will sideline him for several weeks, according to Mike Klis of The Denver Post. Injuries and suspensions have caused the Broncos’ linebacker unit to be shaken up over the last few days. In addition to Bradley’s surgery, Von Miller has learned that he will be suspended for the start of the regular season. As a result, the Broncos are moving Wesley Woodyard from weakside linebacker to the middle, while Danny Trevathan, who usually sees time at weakside linebacker in the team’s nickel defense, is going to be their starting weakside linebacker in their base defense, according to Klis. Miller is appealing his suspension, but Denver will have to replace him at strongside linebacker whenever a ruling is handed down. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
