Denver Broncos defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson was placed on injured reserve last week after suffering a hip injury in the Broncos’ Nov. 24 road game at New England.  However, that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to help the team. Vickerson was back in the locker room with his teammates a day after the Broncos 35-28 win over the Chiefs. “These young guys on this team really need me, support-wise,” Vickerson said, per the team’s website. “And I’m just trying to support them, too, for myself. I need them, too, so it’s a boost of my spirits just seeing the guys out, playing hard and giving effort. That’s all I can do, man, is try to give words to some young guys and try to support them the best way I can.” Vickerson plans to be around the team for the rest of the season. “I’m still here supporting real strong, sitting in meetings, trying to stay into it, helping the younger guys out as much as I can,” he said. “I’m just trying to be that veteran leader in the locker room.” Vickerson said the support he’s received from the Broncos organization has been uplifting. “The whole family with the Broncos, they’ve been supporting me ever since the injury and I got news about it,” he said. “It’s always good when you’ve got a support system and you’ve got a backup that is supporting you strong. It’s a good deal.” Vickerson discussed his injury and said he knew something was wrong as soon as the play unfolded. “I heard two clicks in my hip and the pile fell on top of me,” he said. “I just knew something was wrong. Took the precautions, tried to get it looked at on the sideline and just wasn’t feeling it. (They) told me I couldn’t go back.” The post Kevin Vickerson continues to support Broncos teammates appeared first on Sports Glory.
