Ty Warren out for the year

Ty Warren went out with an injury in the first quarter, today it sounds like he is out for the second year in a row with a season-ending injury

Normally, this would be a FanShot. but I have some questions to ask, so I made it a post instead.

Mike Klis with the Denver Post is reporting that Ty Warren has suffered a re-tear in his bicep and is likely done for the season.

Isn't this the same injury that he suffered last year that caused him to go on IR? According to Wikipedia, last year's injury was to his triceps. In this piece at CBSSports, they are saying the tear was to his triceps again.

Is this the situation where we can bring him back off IR part way through the season. I'm thinking if it's a same injury as last year, he's done for the year. If he's out, I think we need to be done with this guy. He hasn't been healthy since 2008. If we cut place him on IR and he's gone for the season, because he is a veteran, are we paying his whole salary for the year because he made it into the first game? How does the whole cap thing work with this?

Next, who do we replace him with? Is Amobe Okoye still out there? (Dang, I just checked, he signed with the Bears again.) Or another of the training camp cuts that can come in and shore up our inner D-line? The FO activated Sealver Siliga from the Practice Squad, can he replace Warren in the long term?

Antonio Dixon was cut by Philadelphia, who are very deep with defensive linemen, a move that was seen as a cost-cutting move rather than Antonio wasn't good enough. He may still be available.

We were very stout against Pittsburgh. I like what I saw against the run, with the notable exception being Vickerson's multiple encroachment penalties. I don't want to go backwards here. So far, this position seems finally be an area of strength. Maybe I'm hand-wringing here, but what do you think Elway and Co. are going to do to deal with this hole?
