Here is part of the official Broncos report:

"He’s definitely going to be a player that we miss," Wesley Woodyard reiterated. "He’s going to be there making sure he’s watching film for us to give us coaching points and what we can do better. We’re going to miss him on the field, but he’s going to always be around in the locker room talking to us."
