Former starting MLB Joe Mays is officially out for the season. The Denver Broncos have announced Mays will be placed on injured reserve and that he will have left leg surgery to repair his broken left fibula. The break is near his ankle.
Mays will be back in time for offseason conditioning workouts by next May. Mays had started out the season alongside Wesley Woodyard and Von Miller as the starting linebackers for the Broncos in 2012. A severe hit on Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in Week 3 resulted in a fine and a suspension of one game for Mays. Joe would miss the following week's game vs. the Raiders before returning to the starting lineup at New England. After the Patriots game in Week 5, John Fox would replace Mays with Keith Brooking in the starting lineup at middle linebacker for good.
Brooking continues to start at middle linebacker for the Broncos. Mays was in the midst of playing his third season in the orange and blue.

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”
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 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...
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.
