The Denver Broncos were counting on Ty Warren to anchor their run defense after sitting out the previous two seasons with injuries.
That plan lasted all of five snaps before the veteran defensive tackle re-tore his right triceps in the opener and went on I.R., ending his season and likely his career.
Filling the void for the Broncos (1-1) are a beefed-up Kevin Vickerson, 11th-year pro Justin Bannan and Colorado native Mitch Unrein, a second-year pro who went undrafted out of the University of Wyoming.
So far, so good.
The Broncos held the run-oriented Pittsburgh Steelers to 2.9 yards a carry in the opener and the Atlanta Falcons to 2.4 yards a carry.

Denver Broncos power rankings from around the web. How did Monday’s 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons affect the Broncos’ power rankings? Let’s find out.
ESPN: 9th (13)
Was Peyton Manning really wearing a Broncos jersey? Looked like he could’ve been rocking the Colts’ horseshoe. Impressive.

Forgive the non sequitur, but the funniest thing I’ve...
Peyton Manning’s apparent lack of confidence and arm strength have been debated since the future Hall of Fame quarterback struggled mightily in the Denver Broncos 27-21 loss to the Falcons on Sunday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Against the … Continue reading →
Rod Smith hangs on to a grudge almost as well as a pass.
Even 18 years later, the former Denver Broncos wide receiver remains irate over not being drafted.
The Broncos took a chance on the unheralded wideout from Missouri Southern and he blossomed into the team's all-time leader in virtually every receiving category.
Always a fan favorite, Smith will hear the roar of the crowd...
Sure Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning threw three interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons’ paltry defense and struggled with his accuracy on deep throws. Truth be told, people were foolish to think that his arm strength would fully return so soon after being cleared to resume playing.Or to assume that it would completely return. There is the possibility that we...
(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By PAT GRAHAM AP Sports Writer So Elvis Dumervil doesn't have any sacks through the first two games.
Hardly a big deal this early in the season. Or so the Denver Broncos defensive end thought.
His mom recently called and asked him very matter-of-factly, ''Why don't you have any sacks yet?''
So maybe this was...
When word got out last year that Peyton Manning was not going to play in 2011, I for one was devastated. I'm not a Colts fan just a huge NFL fan that knew I would miss the man, if for anything, his pure passion and knowledge of the game.I'm not going to throw a bunch of stats or anything to really make you think in this article, anyone who is a football fan knows, his stats...
Peyton Manning wasn't having any nonsense Wednesday -- "nonsense" in this case being any questions about the effectiveness of himself and the offense as a whole in the wake of a four-turnover performance Monday. At least on the surface, the 15-year veteran's confidence remained intact. "It's not deterred at all, if you're insinuating that coming off...
HOUSTON Wade Phillips took a preemptive strike at the "Peyton Manning is finished" angle Thursday.
"I know it's going to be asked so I'm going to go ahead and make my statement," the Houston Texans defensive coordinator said. "Peyton Manning looks like the same guy he's always been."
No sense poking the bear, even if it does have a neck...
Everyone's heard the news by now. It has been discussed and dissected to death. Peyton Manning threw three interceptions in a row in the first quarter last week.As a result, he dug the Broncos into a hole they could not get out of. They ended up losing to the Atlanta Falcons 21-27.It was one of Manning's worst performances ever, and in front of a large audience for ESPN...
Houston Texans (2-0) at Denver Broncos (1-1)
No line has moved more over the past week than this one. Last week, this line was -2.5 in favor of Denver and now it’s -2 in favor of Houston. Why? Because Houston blew out the lowly Jaguars? Because Denver lost by 6 in Atlanta, one of the toughest places to play in the National Football League? I don’t get it. This line should probably...

The Denver Broncos will take Houston Texans this week (First Look); here are six notes for your consideration going into Week 3.
(1) Quarterback Peyton Manning’s go-to-guy seems to be receiver Demaryius Thomas.
Throughout the first two weeks of the season, Thomas has led the team in catches (13), yards (188), and scores (2). In fact, only...
