Broncos at Buccaneers injury report: Virgil Green out for another week

New, comments

The final Denver Broncos participation has Virgil Green listed as out for their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That’s tough news, but an opportunity for others to shine.

The Denver Broncos (3-0) will be without tight end Virgil Green, right tackle Donald Stephenson and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware again this week as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2).

All three are very close to returning.

“They’ll travel this week,” head coach Gary Kubiak said “We feel good about them going this week, so we’ll get all three of them going with us.”

This will provide Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips more opportunities to shine and possibly push for additional playing time in the coming weeks once Green returns. Meanwhile, Shane Ray and Ty Sambrailo will continue to hold down the fort for the others.

For Tampa Bay, they have four players listed as out for the game with running back Doug Martin and wide receiver Cecil Shorts being the two offensive weapons out and defensive end Robert Ayers on the defensive side.
