Any word about the injuries to JT and Royal?

From behind the Broncos bench J. Thomas didn't look very good. He could put weight on it, but it was clearly REALLY hurting him. My completely unsubstantiated guess is something like a high ankle sprain?

Nothing official

JT rolled his ankle, bet it is a high ankle sprain. that takes time to heal.

Eddie could miss a lot of games he looked in tons of pain.

Thanks....that's a few weeks....I hope Eddie's is just a groin and not his hip.

It definitely looked like a groin injury. Those don't heal quickly at all.

I'm thinking Eddie's groin rolled up like a windowshade.

Unbelievable. This never ends. Why can't we ever stay healthy. We can't play the bengals every week

I really think we should call TO and bring him in. our WRs are dropping fast.

All the pulled muscles every year really do seem like they might be his fault. Not sure why every coach we ever hire keeps the guy...

How many injuries can we sustain year in and year out without pointing the finger at Greek?

Get him the **** outta here. Time to update our health and fitness strategy.

Injuries in general are one thing, but all the pulled hamstrings and groins really do seem to point to poor flexibility training...

A high ankle sprain is among the worst things you can get. Worse than a broken ankle as it will just linger on for seemingly forever. I really hope that's not what it is.

the head trainer/athletic trainer isnt responsible for PREVENTING guys from getting injured, hes responsible for getting them back from injury.

He's the doctor. Wouldn't be his fault. And hard to pin the injuries on the training staff this year considering ya know, they didn't train them all offseason.

But I've long been lobbying for a clean sweep of the training and medical staffs. It's long overdue that they try something different. Whether it's their fault or not.

I am excited to see DJ and Champ get healthy, shouldn't DJ be back on the field in the next week or so?

Once we start getting some of these guys back we may give some of the better teams problems.

Fox said it was a high ankle sprain in the post game press conference.

3. Youre right lets just use our back up QB instead.

I love Eddie Royal but seriously the guy has almost been invisible for over a year. About anybody would be an improvement ????

Royal looked bad, that looked season ending to me personally. Our guys also seem to wear down quicker than other teams. I think at a minimum the trainers would focus on fitness and we could take advantage of the altitude? How about windsprints in Leadville?

Royal could be anything from 1-2 weeks to season ending.
