DeMarcus Ware will be out at least a month according to Pro Football Talk after fracturing his ulna during the Denver Broncos 34-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Shane Ray has been Ware’s partner in crime opposite Von Miller, so he will get a significant boost in playing time over the next four or five games.

The Broncos did not miss a beat without Ware as they continued to harass and pressure Andrew Luck all game long, but Ware is a big part of that. Before the injury, he had already notched two sacks on the year.

The good news about this is that Ware will be well rested upon his return for another December-January playoff run.

UPDATE: 9:17 P.M. (9/18/2016)

According to Mike Klis of 9News, Ware could be out as long as six weeks.
