The Denver Broncos have yet another knee injury with edge rusher Jacob Martin going to injured reserve, but the good news is the opened the 21-day return window for both edge rusher Randy Gregory and right tackle Billy Turner. Both of them could play as early as this Sunday.
Fortunately, we have people in the local media like Cecil Lammey to lecture us on who to blame and who not to blame. Well, just who not to blame. Loren Landow is the Broncos’ Strength and Condition coach, but apparently if a player gets injured it isn’t on him in any way, shape or form.
If you are blaming Loren Landow for #Broncos injury problems you are probably the following:— Cecil Lammey (@CecilLammey) December 14, 2022
1. Don't know football
2. Don't have sources inside the building.
3. Don't talk to players not only in DEN but around the league. @1043TheFan
Awesome, thanks for the key on the ground insight there, Cecil. I’m going to go with the data and the data shows without a doubt that injuries have skyrocketed since 2018. Coincidentally, that was the year Loren Landow took over. While I agree it may not be his fault, he is the guy at the top and accountability should be had after this season.
But what I won’t do is tell you or anyone else that:
- You are stupid because I am smart.
- I know very important people and you don't.
- Players always know best when it comes to injury prevention.
As for the Broncos remaining injuries, they also placed Mike Boone on injured reserve this week. The DNP’s at practice today included Dre’Mont Jones with a hip issue, Russell Wilson in the concussion protocol and both Kendall Hinton and Courtland Sutton who are battling hamstring injuries.
It’s okay though. Injuries just happen and it is no one’s fault that Denver has been a league leader in injuries since 2018. It’s just happenstance and we should accept it.
