Horse Tracks 11/19/09 - According to AP, Kyle Orton has torn ligaments in ankle


DB - Week 11 - Wed: McDaniels - Broncos TV

AP - Simms Gets The Reps, Orton Sits Out Practice - Arnie Stapleton
"The ligaments in Kyle Orton's left ankle are torn. He certainly isn't." WHAT?!?!?!?!

DPP - Broncos QB Orton hurting but hopes to play - Mike Klis
"His sore ankle — initially twisted two weeks earlier against the Baltimore Ravens — had not healed sufficiently to participate in practice."

DPP - Berger's net punting is Broncos' more important statistic - Lindsay Jones
"Elvis Dumervil has been credited with an additional half a sack in Denver's game at Washington, bringing his season total to 12...In addition to quarterback Kyle Orton, whose injured left ankle kept him sidelined, wide receiver Brandon Marshall (neck), running back LaMont Jordan (back), offensive tackle Ryan Harris (toe) and safety Josh Barrett (hamstring) did not participate...Rookie tight end Richard Quinn was yanked during a blocking drill against linebackers Wednesday and reprimanded for several minutes by position coach Clancy Barone."

DPP - Analysis: Broncos looking to buck disturbing late-season trend - Jeff Legwold
"They lost five of their last seven in 2006, lost four of the last six in 2007 and lost four of the last six last year, including the last three games of the season."

DB - Quarterback Quandary - Gray Caldwell

DB - Bringing a Backfield Presence - Chris Gentilviso
"Denver forced four fumbles in its 34-23 Week 6 win over San Diego...Since that Oct. 19 game, the Broncos have forced a total of two fumbles in their three losses to the Ravens, Steelers and Redskins."

DPP - Woody's Mailbag: Broncos broken down
"I give my opinion, which is based on sound information, thoughtful research and observation, unlike some kid in Arizona who is a Broncos fan and writes a blog, without proper grammar or punctuation or understanding, from his mom's laundry room and think he knows what he's talking about, and people actually pay attention."

"People tell me Robert Ayers is sensational. He has made one play." Funny, the "one play" Woody credits Ayers as having made is the one play where he probably just happened to be in the right place at the right time (the fumble return for TD).

"Also, if you have a quarterback who doesn't throw down the field (until the Washington game), cornerbacks cheat up; the defense can put a safety in the box, and the defensive line can sell out on the run." Hasn't it been established on MHR that in the Broncos' losses, the opposing defenses have gotten a rush out of their front 7, therefore not needing to keep two safeties deep bring up either of their safeties? Or was I imagining things?
