A bit of good news when it relates to starting right guard Chris Kuper arrived this morning. Kuper's left ankle injury that he suffered during Sunday's game vs. the Bengals isn't severe; X-Rays revealed no breaks in the ankle. The extent of his absence won't be known until MRI's are taken today.
Kuper's season ended in the final game of the regular season in 2011 vs. the Chiefs when he broke his left ankle in a gruesome injury. Kuper had also broken his left forearm during training camp on Aug. 14 which caused him to miss the first five games of the regular season before returning in the sixth game of 2012 at San Diego.
Manny Ramirez – who had started Denver's first five games at right guard with Kuper out – played the remainder of the Cincinnati game at Kuper's position. If Kuper is unable to go, Ramirez will get the nod at right guard yet again.
For a Broncos team that is running on all cylinders, Kuper's injury isn't exactly a positive sign. However, because Kuper's injury isn't serious to the point of him missing more than one game, it has to be taken in a positive way. Denver's offense – passing and running game – is playing excellent as of the moment. It's refreshing to know that Kuper's left ankle isn't severely injured and that he'll back in the starting lineup in no time.

The good news for Denver’s offensive line is that the injury sustained by guard Chris Kuper on Sunday is not as bad as it could have been. The bad news is that he’ll likely miss a month of football due to a severely sprained left ankle.
This is not the first time Kuper has had ankle woes, as a dislocated left ankle abruptly ended his 2011 season in January, causing him to miss...
Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback.
Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field.
Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer.

John Fox spent eight seasons in Carolina from 2002-10, coaching the Panthers to five post-season victories and a Super Bowl appearance (XXXVIII). On Sunday, Fox will be back on the sideline at Bank of America Stadium — this time coaching the apposing team, Denver.
“I have a lot of great relationships there,” Fox told the Denver...
Peyton Manning had no trouble clearing those two interceptions out of his head and leading a fourth-quarter comeback.
''I've been there before,'' the four-time MVP said.
And no one's ever been better at it.
Manning threw for a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter Sunday, rallying the Denver Broncos to a 31-23 victory that left him 8-0 against the Cincinnati...
The focus in the Denver Post is that of Champ Bailey and AJ Green. Of course it is a Denver paper so they praise Bailey as shutting down AJ at key moments (like when Dalton under throws the ball). Bailey got beat by AJ flat out. If the Bengals had anything else to test the Broncos D then they would have won this game. As it stands the playbook should look like this from here on out...
You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended.
He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana.
“Weed is legal”
The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday.
Not enough of a hand.
Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...
Peyton Manning has won four NFL MVP awards. The Denver Broncos quarterback is no stranger to what it takes to win the NFL MVP. In fact, although he did not play a single snap during the 2011 NFL season, which turned out to be his final one with the Indianapolis Colts, many felt as if Manning still deserved a few votes for MVP as it proved just how important he was to his team and...
The Denver Broncos have a pair of undrafted rookies making an impact, so why can't teams like the Patriots have the same success? One of the Broncos is actually a former Patriot.
