Derek Wolfe is out at practise today and most probably will not be back for the playoff game next week.
Centre Steve Vallos is back though at Practise.
Also mainstream media missed out the fact that Duke Ihenacho suffered a concussion during the Oakland game and is still out.
Michael Huff played instead of Duke and JDR got him involved in multiple packages. It might not be too far off to expect that Michael Huff will play instead of Duke in the first playoff game...
Over the last two games, Del Rio has found a place for him in the defense. Huff has played in the nickel (five defensive backs), dime (six defensive backs) and when the Broncos go to their seven defensive-back look. Del Rio has played Huff deep at safety and played him as a weak-side linebacker. He’s also played Huff along the line of scrimmage in rush situations -- Huff ran down Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor on one of those snaps Sunday. Huff played 15 snaps in the Broncos’ win over Houston and then followed that with 25 snaps on Sunday against the Raiders.
I am pumped up for both Jeremy Mincey and Huff......Huff might be an upgrade over Duke at this point. Duke might mature into a better player next year.....
