Update 9/30/13, 8:31 a.m. MT:

Lombardi is reporting that Beadles' X-rays came back negative—he should be fine. Hat tip to bux in the comments for the tip. See the original story below:

Injuries—and suspensions—haven't been kind to the Denver Broncos this season.

Two weeks ago, Duke Ihenacho, Robert Ayers and Ryan Clady went down with injuries. Last week, Ihenacho suffered another injury and Tony Carter was dinged up.

Thankfully, a majority of those injuries weren't serious (all of the players mentioned above—with the exception of Clady, who went on injured reserve—were back on the field in today's game). Despite battling injuries, the Broncos have managed to go 4-0 to start the season.

In Sunday's win, however, the team suffered another injury setback.

Interestingly, coach John Fox made no mention of injuries following the game, which may be a sign that Beadles' injury is not expected to be serious.

Offensive guard Zane Beadles (hand) has started in all four games this season, allowing just one sack. He was a Pro Bowl alternate last year after allowing just one sack through sixteen starts.

Denver's two backup offensive guards are Chris Kuper and John Moffit. In an ideal world, Beadles will be back in time for Denver's Week 5 match up against the Cowboys in Dallas next week.

Keep your fingers crossed and check back for updates on Beadles' status.
